The Storm Lurking Around Social Media

Posted on Nov 24, 2010

The date was November 23rd, 2010. It started out just like any other day. Little did I know that the day would end up altering my view of social media forever. Ok, that was slightly dramatic. I’ve always known that social media could and has been used for eee-v-i-l (think Mike Myers) or as a platform for blowing things out of proportion from time to time, but I had never seen the rumor mill spin so quickly as on this day. It started for me when my wife warned me that a storm was coming. I live in Utah, a state known for, or at least claimed by license plates, as “The Greatest...

Utah SEO, Bryan Phelps and Paid Links

Posted on Aug 8, 2007

Bryan Phelps has ranked #1 for “utah seo” for the past few days. He recently posted about it and seems to be surprised by the results. Obviously this isn’t some huge dent in the internet marketing world as the search phrase barely gets any traffic. And that limited traffic is most likely composed of others in the field, but it’s still interesting to discuss. Bryan’s site was started early 2007. He posted about random topics early on. Then, about a month ago he changed his title to “utah seo specialist” and was able to acquire some links. Now for...
