Excerpts from my Personal Journal


I've been keeping a personal journal for a few months now. I don't usually share it with anyone. But today, I felt compelled to share a portion of what I'd written. I hope you get something out of it or it spurs some thoughts in your own life. Let me know in the comments if you like it, and perhaps I'll share more in the future. Here is my life verse: Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his … View More »

Here’s why SEOs can’t have nice things…I clicked an ad and you won’t believe what I saw.

Today, as I do  every day, I was browsing on LinkedIn and an ad caught my eye. The Ad said: Hmmm. Outsourced linking. Sounds fishy to me. But, technically, at my firm, that's one of our offerings. We help clients build links by promoting them the way a PR firm would. Our links also can help a client increase the perception of their authority to prospective clients as well as give Google what it wants in order for a site to rank. So, guess what, I clicked on the ad. And what I saw shocked … View More »

About time to start this thing back up.

It's time to change and start this thing back up again.

Ok, I've been so busy with family and running WrightIMC that I've again neglected this blog, as I've done so many times in the past. I doubt anyone is even still reading it. It's been sitting like an abandoned oil well for almost two years. But I'm hoping now is the time to start it flowing again. I have a lot to write about, stuff that I wouldn't … View More »

Embracing Change – Evolving in SEO Town

It was almost 8 years ago when I decided to move out of the cocoon of my big agency background and work at becoming a specialist in SEO. I feel that succeeded - but the cost, I realize now, may not have been worth the prize. I spend most of my days lately trying to disassociate myself from many of so-called SEOs who peddle snake oil. These … View More »

Mayday! The problem with chasing too much tail.

For those of you not into the everyday happening of the search engine optimization world, let me tell you a little secret. Google changes things. And they change things often.
