About SEO Chicks
About our journey
On a more serious note, we all love to answer the questions that you ask us, and we love your comments. We have established a nice reputation as being friendly to newcomers in the industry and we plan to keep it, whether you’re male, female, or a dwarf robo hamster with opposable thumbs and a tiny little keyboard.
The SEO Chicks was founded in 2007 when Lisa Myers (then Lisa Ditlefsen) and Anita Chaperon met at a networking event. They decided to start an all-female blog, after being witness to several offensive remarks about females in SEO. Damning them all, they brought Julie Joyce on board and launched the blog right before the first SMX show in Seattle, where Julie and Lisa paraded around with SEO Chicks t-shirts, made Dixon Jones crawl under a table, forced Rand Fishkin to undress in front of them and wear an SEO-Chick t-shirt (it was ok, his wife was there!), and tried to get Google employees to buy them drinks.
Meet The Chicks
Lisa Myers is one of the founders of SEO Chicks and has 11 years’ experience in Marketing, of which 7 years in Search. Lisa founded her own company, Verve Search, in February 2009 and offers strategic search consulting as well as implementation of SEO, PPC and Social Media Services.
Judith Lewis has been working in online marketing since 1996, before it was called “online marketing”. She has extensive experience in performing “hands-on” SEO, indulging in everything from keyword research through to content development and linking building. She is also a dab hand at strategizing social media campaigns as well as pay-per-click (PPC) campaign creation and management. Prior to joining her current position she has worked in-house across a variety of sectors including retail/e-commerce, high tech and publishing.
Julie Joyce has been working in the field of IT since 2000. Her technical background is in programming C++, asp, Java, and Cold Fusion with the occasional bit of minor database work. Amazingly, she’s never written php, only modified it. She switched to search engine marketing in 2002, soon became head of search, and managed that team for a small IT firm for 3 years before working in-house for a gambling company in the UK, then quitting to start her own agency, Link Fish Media, Inc., with her husband, Jay Young.
