Just a few days after Google’s purchase of Blogger in 2003, I began down this trek into blogging to see the difference between a blog and other web publishing tools (such as GeoCities, now closing), specifically for their influence and impact on SERPs for my company’s websites. Not that there weren’t other useful tools to help people build a website or even an online journal, similar to blog platforms, but it did give us a glimpse of what Google saw, an indication really, of how the internet could (and did) become much more than just a place for commerce, breaking down walls that kept “average Joe” from being part of web.
In October of 2004, I stepped out and started blogging (infrequently) about SEO on Blogger. Most of these early posts were more minor entries about news or changes within the industry with some commentary. In January 2007, I really committed to the idea of bringing my experience to light with the creation of SEOpittfall on a WordPress platform. The biggest changes with SEOpittfall have included: more editorial value being added to my posts, including more thought leadership and delivering testing results and outcomes.
I appreciate all of the support from the SEO community over the past five years and look forward to more productive years to come.
(I apologize if I leave anyone out)
I look forward to still being a voice for positive SEO and wanted to share in this milestone with you, Cheers!
