Introduction

I am a Director of Search Marketing for Consultwebs.com.

I take pride in looking for new technologies that can add value to our client’s sites.

What I like about Consultwebs.com is that there is a strong desire to do whatever it takes for our clients

A native of Spencer, North Carolina, I studied industrial design at N.C. State University.

I went on to become the lead designer at CG&D Studios, a Raleigh-based artistic glass studio. For 10 years, I provided a wide variety of clients with consulting, design, development and installation of artistic glass creations. I also developed the company’s website, implemented workflow systems, administered Google Apps, and handled overall operations and high-level design projects.

When I'm not working, I enjoy reading about emerging technologies, playing drums, watching college basketball, cooking and spending time with my friends and family.

Looking for some market research and this looks to be the correct community.  Just wanted some honest feedback on how useful you all find the shared link.  It is a Google map mashup of bicycle accident locations in California.  I know this doesn't relate to everyone here based on geography, but when viewing, approach it from the viewpoint of someone in California.

**Disclaimer:  I am not a cyclist (actually not very athletic at all).  I don't intend to post anything else here, just interested in the communities feedback.
The BikeSafe Bicycle Crash Reporting App was developed to help you track dangerous areas in California & give you a quick way to get legal help.

I use to live and bike commute in Southern California.  This type of information is very helpful.  i was hid by a car here in SW Georgia last year and survived, but it could have been fatal.  This information is also beneficial to motorists.  Motorist need to be aware of cyclist fatalities so they can be on the look out as they drive.

If you had to set up a content marketing team from scratch, how would you structure it, and what components would it have?

I would bring on a Senior Marketing Strategist who could help develop the team and later mange them. I would plan on bringing together an expert SEO/LPO, content writer, PPC manager, organic marketer, social media marketer, graphic designer, developer, project manager and depending on if this was a company or a project, a billing person.

Simple Google Cache Check Tool in Google Spreadsheets.  Burn through hundreds of urls at a time, or copy paste an entire sitemap.  Returns the cache date and the cache link (if cached).  Happy Holidays!

Just updated my content audit tool.  Take a look and let me know if you have any suggestions.

- Better handling of column mapping.
- The ability to use another rank tracking program, see Ranking Template
- Tested on a 1,500 page site.
- Ability to add multiple strings in the excluded url word field.
- Now gives feedback on pages remaining when running the audit.

It processes a page a second, so it can take a while to get through larger sites.  This is a Google Apps restriction, but worth the wait.

Looking for a few people to collab with and test a new tool I am developing.  Uses Google Apps and a Nodejs (Casperjs) api to easily set up re-occurring #conversionfunnel tests.

Great food. The oysters were wonderful. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food. One of the commenters says something about the blue chips in the oysters. It is sea salt and it is delicious. Very clean and friendly and I don't understand why so many people have given it negative reviews. On Yelp it has very positive reviews.

I have been going to Kings for nearly 20 years. You will not find a more honest and helpful shop. Steve is wonderful. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Take your car here.

Ok. Steak was a little tough and the seasoning is disappointing. Service was great.

Love everything about this place. Not from Boston but got really lucky finding it. Great food and some of the best salsa I have ever had.
