Forgive me in advance for saying this - SEO is the natural result of doing good work on and off page. All the elements that make up the whole, if done correctly will produce results, positive or negative they will show up in your analytics - if you take the time to read and understand them. If you choose to work with a SEO consultant before understanding those conditions. Then you are basically hiring someone who is using your own watch to tell you what time it is and paying them to do it.

I use Pearltrees to organize stuff I find. Was not until recently I realized how powerful it is for gauging audience receptivity to articles and content. Within 10 pearls (topics) there are 52 hits (user picks) on what I have collected. Searching feature is also pretty strong and useful.
I love being in beta and having no notices about changes rather you need a quick eye to determine if something is different. Like, I just noticed that the scroll bar highlights posts I have read on the page for quick reference to scroll back too.
