SEO Tools Review: SEOmoz Pro Membership

June 5, 2008

Just for the record, I am not being paid or influenced in any way to write this review. This is 100% honest feedback.

Getting into the customer’s mind is critical, and there isn’t always a tool that can help you do it. You are forced to turn to other methods of keyword research. Here are my… Continue reading

As Long As There Are Search Engines, SEO Will Survive

May 8, 2008

SEO isn’t a dying industry, it’s an evolving industry. I think that Greg and Shoemoney make good points, but I disagree with their overall impression of SEO’s future. Yes, the Search Engines’ algorithms are changing, but they always have – and always will. One thing you change today, may not work a week from now. Isn’t this how it has always been?

The sentence that I disagree… 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

Some people are great at networking (lead generation), others are great at sales (e-commerce), some people just like to help and educate others (content sites), and…well, you get the picture. And despite people (and websites) being different, they all have one thing in common: they all have… 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:

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
