I was writing a status update and it kinda ran on... to almost the blog post level lol. Anyway, I just want to put it in here because it's worth archiving...
________________________________________________

It's more than just a job; the human factor

I was thinking this morning that it's often not just about paying the bills and feeding my family. Sure, that's part of why I get up everyday, but for me there's far more too it.

I spent many years specifically doing forensic SEO, day in and day out (dealing with sites that have lost traffic/revenues due to penalties or other reasons). It's not an easy job. Nobody is ever happy to see you. I deal with the stories from small business owners that are losing their life savings (and more). And the corporates that getting trampled by competitors.

Regardless of the situation, there are people involved. From a SMBs lost dream, to people getting laid off at the corporation/enterprise. I try my best to not take it personally, but you can't really. But that's what makes you effective I believe.

Obviously the same goes for managing marketing campaigns, it's just highlighted more in the forensic world.

I currently am working on a forensic gig and when I asked why they'd started the business and what it meant to them, I could feel their emotions swell as they talked about buying their mom a home back when things were good, which is now at risk. That pain I feel motivates me to be the best I can for them.

There's the industry angle... they've been through 4 other SEOs trying to get this fixed and were getting very disillusioned with the industry I love. This, also motivates me. As it should when providing a monthly campaign service as well.

It’s never really about the money, there's always a human factor folks...

Something to consider...

How Google Ranks Web Pages (Part I) - http://goo.gl/bfV5V1 (more to follow) 
If there’s one thing that can be frustrating in the world of SEO, is the oft lack of understanding amongst its purveyors about how Google actually works. We all know the usual suspects, links, ‘content‘, TITLE tags… but there’s so much more to it. In this series of articles we’re going to look at the... Read more »

Drop by and see us... on air in 1hr (me n' +Terry Van Horne ) should be around.. 
 
Bill and Ammon (+Bill Slawski  and +Ammon Johns   ) reprise their role as the "Wyld Stallyns" of SEO, with bodacious babe +Kristin Drysdale helping wrangle comments, and stop them chasing squirrels.  (okay, a more realistic goal: prevent them chasing too many squirrels).  +Terry Van Horne joins us to release more squirrels when Kristin isn't looking.

(No squirrels are harmed in the making of this program)


About Bill and Ammon's Bogus Hangout
This is not a polished, planned and scripted event.  This is a casual hangout with old friends and new, shared with all.  Somewhere around the halfway point, we'll post the link for anyone who wishes to come and join us (space permitting) allowing us to meet even more old and new friends.

The idea of pre-planning, a set topic, or even simply knowing who will be on the show this week?  All totally bogus.

Free Air-Guitars to all attendees (exact model and colour may vary with imagination)

Our general style is to issue uninvited invitations, naming folks we think might like a chat, without asking first if they are available (or willing). 

This week's uninvited invitations go out to +Jennifer Slegg, +Paula Allen, +Steve Gerencser and +Duane Forrester, but we have no idea if they'll be free, or who else may join in.  

We have no idea yet who will actually turn up, and that's how we like it.  
Excellent!

Introduction
Hi there, Dave here, first things first, I don’t enjoy SEO… don’t even like it; I LOVE IT. While I participate in and am surrounded by many facets of internet marketing, SEO is where the heart is. As one would for any art, expression is an important part (as is passing it on).

I own and operate both Search News Central and the SEO Training Dojo where I write, teach and participate in the search industry's evolution. My real job, my 'day job' is as a search and internet marketing consultant with Verve Developments.
