under-promise, over-deliver email spam pitch of the day. 

"Just recently Gangman Style ( PSY - GANGNAM STYLE (강남스타일) M/V ) reached a record 2 billion views. Now imagine the scale of Gangnam Style's popularity being applied to your business! This is exactly how I deliver results to my clients - and I assure you that you'll be overwhelmingly pleased with the outcome."

When I first started online, this $11 piece of weakness was "the chair" for the first 3 or 4 years. ;)

The other big issue is group think. Complex hedged statements are nowhere near as sexy as simple & direct unhedged ones. A  lot of faux ideal stuff can  spread and spread, but the more counter your beliefs to conventional wisdom the more it makes sense to not bother trying to be entirely mainstream.

At some point as Google grows more adversarial, many of the smartest conversations about SEO happen via IM or PM or so on & are not publicly accessible & hosted on Google's servers. We do use Skype quite a bit to chat with friends about search & of course we have our membership site too.

"I miss the days where a search returned solid content from individuals posting on the web from real experiences and passion.

Now I just get pages of junk, ads, and click stealing phony pages.   Google's core content is very bland now and rarely satisfying unless I'm looking for something common and at a high level." - Timothy Notestein

Google is transforming its business and the notion of search through a richer offering of information and services that has some advertisers wishing it was still largely a Web index.

Nice to see politically polarizing comments back and forth about a heckler at an Obama speech in the "Hot and Recommended" section on Google+.

It reminds me of a quote

"I'm not saying that television is vulgar and dumb because the people who compose the Audience are vulgar and dumb. Television is the way it is simply because people tend to be extremely similar in their vulgar and prurient and dumb interests and wildly different in their refined and aesthetic and noble interests." - David Foster Wallace

It also reminds me of a movie

this Google banner ad is ... in a word ... perfect

it shows that the closest web safe color to the one Google was testing on AdWords backgrounds is white

Story
Tagline
back when I got into SEO we had to build links in the snow, uphill both ways!
Introduction
I am a well known SEO, considered to be an expert by some. I have been actively involved on the web as a publisher and an SEO practitioner since 2003 (that makes me sound soo old).

I tend to think marketing is both powerful and dangerous, and hope that my contributions to the web manage to make the web a better place than it would be without them existing.

SEO is a challenging occupation since the field changes rapidly and central network operators (ie: Google engineers) are often biased against you and hope to see you fail.
