Back in the Saddle*

No. 2175 • January 11th, 2016 • 23 Comments

*Kinda.   After three years at the company, I decided to leave Moz at the end of 2015. Moz was basically my first real job ever.  I’d had a couple of short stints at small companies in the Bay Area back in the mid-2000’s, but nothing like working at a venture-backed startup with over 200 employees.  The company […]

No. 1726 • December 4th, 2012 • 63 Comments

Hopefully the headline says it all, but if you want the official details, please head on over and read the official release. Needless to say, as a full-time employee of SEOmoz, I won’t be taking on client work for the foreseeable future :).  Going forward, I’ll be blogging almost exclusively on the SEOmoz blog, so if you’re […]

Hope you all had a terrific Thanksgiving holiday.  Sorry for the lack of posting recently, it’s been quite the busy fall 🙂 Just a quick note to say that I’ll be at BOTH Blueglass X Tampa and BIA/Kelsey ILM West (Los Angeles) next week.  (I’ll be flying directly from Tampa to LA.)

The Apple Maps Ecosystem

No. 1716 • September 25th, 2012 • 13 Comments

I was so excited by my sneak preview of Mat Siltala‘s “Yelp and Siri Optimization” presentation for Local University Advanced at SMX East today that I was inspired to put this infographic together.  Incidentally, we are down to only five seats remaining for that session, so if you have been on the fence, today’s a […]

Syncing Your Google Plus and +Local Pages: Plusses and Minuses

No. 1577 • September 17th, 2012 • 51 Comments

I’m not necessarily saying anyone should do this right now, as the implications of syncing / switching over completely to a Google +Local page are still unclear.  But, since I have virtually stopped taking on new clients for my consulting business in order to focus the vast majority of my time on GetListed, I decided to […]

Local Search Ecosystem: Fall 2012 Update

No. 1593 • August 29th, 2012 • 31 Comments

Obviously this space changes pretty quickly…all that work I put into updating this graphic earlier in the Spring had a gaping hole in it by the time summer rolled around, thanks to the impending arrival of Apple Maps.  Whether Apple knows what it’s getting into with Local remains to be seen…hopefully they’ve got a pretty flexible database […]

My Fall 2012 Speaking Schedule

No. 1561 • August 28th, 2012 • No Comments

After taking a bit of a sabbatical this summer following our largest-ever Local University in Austin, Texas at the end of June, my speaking engagements this fall are ramping up in a hurry.  I’ve got five presentations currently scheduled during the six weeks between the end of September and beginning of November, plus a nice […]

Why You Shouldn’t Get Bent Out of Shape About Siri Rankings (Yet)

No. 1583 • August 24th, 2012 • 10 Comments

Siri, and by extension Apple Maps, is a hot topic these days. With good reason. But I think it's important to take a step back and not fall victim to "shiny object syndrome," as SEO's (including your humble author) so often do. But the number of questions I get, and chatter that I see, about Siri seems to be way out of proportion. What should that proportion be?
