Due to the continued increase in work requests coming my way, I wanted to take the opportunity to clear up some confusion and share who I pass my overload to. Firstly, I am and always have been a solo artist. This means I get booked up in advance. The work comes from me only. Yes, I get requests from people who wish to join me and grow a real company, but I’ve never able to fit that in. Why? IRead more…

I just read another “SEO is on its death-bed – long live usability” article. This one claims that the SEO caterpillar is about to evolve into a beautiful user experience design butterfly and live in the magical land of happy search engines forever after. One popular reason for impending doom for practitioners of the “dark art” of search engine optimization is that they are bullies, cheats, con artists, greedy fools and money hungry link grabbing liars.

As a volunteer reporter for Barry Schwartz’s Search Engine Roundtable blog, I’m often asked, “Why do you do it?” My consulting work is focused on usability and Internet application testing. Why am I out chasing sessions at search engine marketing conferences? To begin with, my work began in web design and consulting/online teaching search engine optimization in the 1990′s. Therefore, I know many “long-timers” in the SEO/M industry. It remains an area of strong interest for me, which is whyRead more…

Li Evans tagged me the other day about reasons to go to the IM NY Leukemia and Lymphoma Society fund raiser in New York city this coming Monday. Because I’m one of those barefoot, happier in the country folks whose idea of real transportation is a horse, the only reason I’m truly able to get to this gig is because of Li, whose duty tomorrow will be dragging me on a train to NY. This is my last conference forRead more…
