Ha, ha, ha. Very nice. Of course if you read this first then you should go to here to realize I have yet to start those fantasies.

Thanks for the thoughts, though.

Our cunning plan to turn you into a Brit, starting with the time-zone shift, is working I see. You'll be drinking tea before the week is up. :)

Just had to throw in my 2 cents worth. I started "Lurking" last October, thought I had enough knowledge to build a site, now with that behind me I take the time to jump in here and well... I wish I had got on board back then.
In the past couple of days I have realized that a little more cre8asite BEFORE getting started, could save a bunch of redo/rewrite/rethinking that I am into now.
Oh well, I don't think anyone "Does it right the first time". :wink:

[size=11]Hi, Bob. Good to hear from you and know that you have been a fan and observing learner for a while. I doubt many people do it right the first time, I know I didn't. But I have to tell you that it's in those redos, rewrites, etc where you really learn, understand, and get to the point that you can work it all out in your head before you sit down to do it (and then you still make mistakes, but thats okay, because you are doing something that you like, right?)

Welcome, and continued successes to ya.

you can add me to the ice hockey loving maple syrup eating Canadian category... (from Vancouver that is).

I lived in Sydney Australia for 3 years, and only returned last year. To all the Australians on here... fair dinkum.

Ok, Better have a say here to give a showing for the States. I'm in Southern California. I guess my question is...why are there so many SEO's in the UK? I can only find a handful of them here in CA...much less finding enough of them who want to get together for a drink!

Welcome to the forums, Joseph. There are plenty of SEOs in the US, and even in SoCal. We just have a lovely mix of Brits here too.

Hi There,
I'm not an SEO and am slightly worried about entering the forum at all. Not sure of the etiquette involved.

I was advised to log on because I'm trying to track down an SEO for an ecommerce business my company launches in January. I've been offered the service by my designer but the more I see in forums like this one, the more convinced I am that we need a specialist who lives and breathes the business.

Would prefer a switched on individual to an agency and will offer flat fee & profit share, in line with the importance of the role. We're UK & Italy based and it would be great to hire an expert in one of these territories.

Sorry if I'm missing the mark by doing this - but if you are able to point me toward a site where I can discuss hiring somebody it would be most appreciated.

Thanks a lot

Siddhartha

Nice to meet you Fern.

Welcome aboard. :wave:

Hopefully, we can all have a little fun, and learn from each other.

Any opinions in where Google might bring us this year? Will we see an IPO?

Hi, jonki, welcome to the Forums. :wave:

You don't have to wait to post some incredibly clever question. In fact we're much better at answering apparently dumb questions. It's like the small child watching the Emperor who was walking around without any clothes and is the only one to point that out. Sometimes the dumbest question isn't dumb at all. :D

Hi all,

I'm new to theses forums also, just wanted to say hi to everyone. I have a few questions and am not to sure where to post them, the most important of which is me looking for a job . As I got let go cause of cut backs a while back and would really like full time work and was wondering if anybody can help me out or point me out in the right direction. I'm willing to relocate myself that's not a problem.

Thanks

I have to say that the forum is a bit intimidating for someone with as limited a knowledge as myself. It will take me weeks if not months to get the lingo down, but I will plug away.

Welcome to Cre8asite, Black Velvet :wave:

SEO is certainly one of the more confusing arts that a webmaster must come to grips with at some level. The reason for that is often that so much apparently contradictory advice is out there.

The Quick, Kick-Start Guide to Search Engine Optimization should be of considerable help in getting you started with some of the most reliable sources of both basic and more advanced information. It links to other 'new to seo' discussions we've had too.

Thank you very much. As I said earlier somewhere I'm just getting started. Right now I'm trying to find a way to bring more traffic in to our political forum, but in the future I want to set up my own website for local artists. Kind of like a artists co-op except on the internet.

May I suggest navigating to the Forum you are most interested in.

Then start scanning thread titles that catch your particular interest. There is likely to be some good discussion on the topic there.

Often times, there is a really good primer on Forum called a "Sticky," which offers a good jumping off point. Many of these Stickys have links to important, useful and many times enlightening dicussions within that particular forum.

Digest small 'bite-sized' pieces one at a time and soon you'll be full for the day. Then, come back again tomorrow when you're hungry again. :D

There are also some good starting points for Search Engine Marketing and Site Promotion in our directory. They are broken down into more specific categories as you move through the directory. Lots of good stuff in there for the beginner as well as the more advanced user.

Hello, helpful and wise people!

I am brand new to search engine optimization, and although I am browsing the forums, I'm still at a bit of a loss about a very basic question (may just be because I am not yet familiar enough with the lingo...). You did say that no question was too basic, right? :|

Yesterday, I submitted my website to a whole bunch of engines using an automatic submission tool. Immediately after submitting, I realized I had a keyword snafu. I immediately fixed the mistake on my website, but my error was sent to the search engines. My question is whether I should resubmit, or assume that the right keywords will be collected when the crawler (if that's the right phrase) visits my site?

There is *so* much more to this SEO business than I had ever imagined! I am reading as fast as I can, but I'd really really appreciate it if someone (anyone!) could put my mind at rest about this very basic question :?

Thanks,
chezlinds

Welcome to the forums, chezlinds! The line for overwhelmed webmasters forms right behind me. ;)

There was a time when submitting your pages to the search engines was an important part of the process, but that time has long since past. In today's SEO world, the only thing submitting a page does is make you "feel" proactive. It's something to do. I've seen tests, just within the past few months, that show fairly conclusively that all three of the major search engines (Google, Yahoo, and MSN) completely ignore a submitted web page.

Today's search engines follow links. If there's a link to your site on any page in their vast index, they will eventually make it to your site. Without an external link, you can submit pages 'til the cows come home and never see a spider.

In short, you don't have to worry about a spider finding mistakes because you submitted before you were quite ready. You do, however, have to worry about getting some external links to your web site. Generally speaking, the more links you have, the higher quality links you have, the more often the spider will visit your site. That way, when you find a mistake and fix it, you can sure the spider will soon return to correct your listing.

Hope that helps. :)

Yes, I am very glad to say that my links are in place and getting stronger. Now I can go read the forums with some peace of mind (and maybe not pull the next trigger without first checking my work!) :wink:

I caught that sale at eurodns.com, but letme.be, wanna.be and tobeornotto.be were already taken :)
