ShareTweet One night, from the only punk rock bar in Las Vegas, I gave a horribly long rant to RateItAll’s Lawrence Coburn. It was my take on the industry. It is hard to find those words again as that was a conversation at 2AM and my brain was competing with the Bouncing Souls. The rant went on and on about popularity, branding, reputation management, and so on. Ever since this conversation, I have been thinking about this concept of SEO and Internet Marketing being something I think must be taught and discussed. Ultimately, the industry lies within conversation and apprenticeship. For my first article on the SEO-Chicks blog, I wanted to write about the importance of understanding this industry, [...]

SEO Chicks Changed My Life – Met Fan at BBC Backstage Party – Spotted Google & Yahoo Drinking TOGETHER!
ShareTweet When the SEO Chicks were sent the questionnaire by our lovely Julie about the last 6 months, and we were asked how it had changed our lives, at that point I hadn’t really noticed a difference. Enter PubCon and suddenly we had a fan (HI NATASHA!) asking us to sign her t-shirt (which we failed to do – SORRY!). Others wiggled out of the woodwork and suddenly I realised that not only were more than 6 people reading the blog, they actually recognised the other chicks and me! SEO Chicks changed my life (and not in a National Enquirer way) forever! So, on I move to the past weekend and the BBC Backstage Christmas Bash. BBC Backstage is a [...]
ShareTweet Ok so Julie and Judith have written roundups of PubCon already, but hey I thought I would do a “social” roundup, since I didn’t attend a single session This was my first pubcon and boy did it live up to the reputation.

Me and my Rob Kerry (evilgreenmonkey) arrived in Vegas on Tuesday 4th Dec. Not [...]
ShareTweet All the SEO Chicks are feckin excited about welcoming Stephanie Weingart to the SEO Chicks blogger crew. Stephanie has been a regular reader of SEO Chicks for a while, she did a interview with “SEO Chick Julie” about a month ago on her blog Frozen2Late. I finally got to meet her in at the bar, ehm I mean WebmasterWorld in Las Vegas last week. After just 10 min talking to this chick I knew she was a perfect fit for the SEO Chicks, she has drive, attitude, intelligence and a big big smile. She is so super nice god damn it! So at PubCon itself we sat down talking about SEO Chicks stuff (hence the photo with all of [...]
ShareTweet Arriving as the only chick attending the PubCon sessions, I knew my task would be a daunting one. With FIVE streams covering three days with a possible over 70 SESSIONS, there was no way I could be in more than one place at one time. Starting out with registration, I arrived early – as did hundreds of other people. Lining up for over 40 minutes in order to get my badge, I almost missed the keynote with Craig Newmark. Grabbing some pastries and a coffee, I dashed to the front of the lunch room only to realise the acoustics were so bad I couldn’t hear him anyway. I wandered off to Social Media Marketing 101 which I was thankful [...]
