The Mario Lemieux Foundation was created by the one and only Mario Lemieux of the Pittsburgh Penguins (you, nevermind). I've been a proud supporter of this charity for about 10 years now. I've volunteered there, made donations, and support the charity each NHL playoffs by growing a bad-ass hockey beard. Last year my beard raised closed… Continue reading

Goodbye Gonzo, Hello Awesome SEO!

by pratt on February 10, 2009

Well folks, the time has come for me to start something new. As you may recall, I stopped blogging back in July when I determined that I wasn't getting enough return for the effort I was putting into my blog. Things have changed. I've been itching to get back into the blogging world, and I've decided it was time to revamp my blog, and… Continue reading


Going to Pubcon?

by pratt on November 5, 2008

Pubcon is my favorite conference to go to each and every year. There is such a large turn out and there is always something to do (it is Vegas after all!) Many people, including myself, have been keeping an eye and ear open for the best events to attend. Fear not, my faithful readers, there are great resources… Continue reading


Vote Dammit!

by pratt on October 2, 2008

Let's face it, it is much easier to complain than it is to actually do something about a problem. When it comes to the turmoil that is the United States, I think it is time everyone got off their ass and did something about it. Kate Morris asked me if I registered (since I'm new to Texas and all), and my response is, "hell yeah!" Let's make a difference… Continue reading

Why I Don’t Blog Anymore

July 30, 2008
A few folks have been asking me why I haven't updated Gonzo SEO in a while. The answer is quite simple, really. This blog doesn't make me any money. I recently discussed my thoughts about not blogging anymore with Karl Ribas and Rae Hoffman. Ultimately those discussions (as well as a few great posts), have led me to the conclusion that I'm wasting time (a.k.a… Continue reading

Quit Bitching About Gas Prices – You Don’t Need to Drive!

May 6, 2008

As we enter yet another summer season with talks of insanely high gas prices, I am forced to remind people that we don't actually need to drive anywhere. You can do everything you need to do, right from your computer! The only reason people aren't doing this now is because they aren't used to doing it! Think I'm making it easier than it really is? Let's take a… Continue reading

I’m Back!

April 28, 2008

Let me first apologize for being AWOL for the last month. I thought I would be able to get back to blogging on the 17th, but that obviously didn’t pan out. To give everyone (who cares) a little update on what I’ve been up to:

· I just moved to Austin, Texas, so if you are an SEO/SEM in that area –… Continue reading

Posting on Hold

March 28, 2008
As you already know, I'm headed down to Austin, TX to start a new job. Between house hunting, packing, and planning a wedding, Gonzo SEO has been neglected the last week. I've decided to put it on pause until I move in. Blogging will resume on April 18th, and I'll be back to posting more regularly (i.e. more than once a week). Sorry for the delay and if you… Continue reading
