The introduce yourself thread is on part II.

I’m starting to feel like I’m standing on a gigantic stage with those monsterous million watt spotlights blinding me where I can’t see any of the crowd. I like meeting and knowing the people that read here. I know there’s people stopping by (or a helluva lotta bots scraping content), but only a handful of comments really. Jim had a nice idea to introduce yourself. Please do the same in this thread here when you get a chance. I’d be happy to hear a bit about ya.

    I found this site some time ago while researching SEO tools.
    I was impressed by the balanced perspective that characterizes your commentary and presentation of SEO related information and have been following ever since.

  • clay whittaker

    My names Clay Whittaker, I’m 15, and I’m trying to figure out how this whole seo thing works.

  • John Vanhara

    I am watching SEO related blogs and like yours. What I do is mostly working with real estate agents, not really selling them SEO services, but providing them with buyers, sellers, deals… I am doing SEO on my own real estate websites, because it seems to me as the most effective approach. (making more money providing buyers and sellers instead of selling SEO services).

  • Patrick Gavin

    Todd, keep up the great work, see you at SES NYC!

  • sholto

    Thanks Todd for all the tools and the occassional sniping comment. I read you through CSS in Thunderbird and am amazed at your research into so many tools.

    Hope that you are still enjoying doing the blog. If you are ever planning to come to scotland or Kerala we are the ones to help an we would love to meet you then

  • Mark N

    Been enjoying Mr. Ploppy (and your rants too, Todd) for a while. Have had an interest in seo for some time and finally made it to SES Chicago this year. In fact, we met briefly. I’m from the great wasteland to the North otherwise known as American junior (or Canada). I think many will agree when I say great job on this blog. I recall another post (I think it might have been an interview) where you mentioned that it kind of scares you to publicly theorize. Don’t let it stop you! I wonder if it would increase participation if you presented ideas that challenged input? For what it’s worth, is high on my daily reads. Again, great work. How’s it feel to be link bait?

  • Ian from New Hampshire

    Hi Todd,

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while now, and I am consistently impressed by the high concentration of valuable information found herein. Please don’t think your posts are too long-winded: speaking as one who blogs with great verbosity, I feel that just because some folks prefer bite-sized info-niblets is no reason to strip down one’s content. I like that you explain a technique thoroughly rather than vaguely alluding to it like a lot of other guys do, and it’s one of many things that keeps me coming back. :-)

    Many Thanks,

  • IrishWonder

    Hi Todd,

    My first encounter with your blog happened through a link from Threadwatch when you posted about blackhat SEO tools (guess this won’t surprise anybody) – and since then I’ve been checking back regularly. A lot of interesting stuff and quality posts.

  • werty

    Todd, it is the Trose. I first met you on a romantic evening in beautiful Orlando, Florida but we chatted before hand on WMW and I think that is when the true feelings started.

    Later on we both got jaded by various jobs and decided to move on in our careers. You opted for a suit and tie and I started wearing pants.

    Before long you went places and became a huge name in the industry. I also grew into my career gaining 30 lbs and fleeing the US of A.

    We toughed it out for a while and shared a parallel success story.

    At some point our laziness took over and we both decided it would make more sense to work for ourselves.

    I had a dream the other night that we would once meet again in a tropical paradise and talk about a new, peaceful world while we fish and sip drinks. I am not sure what it means but I like the thought of it.

    Todd Malicoat, this is your (exaggerated) life.

    Hello Todd,

    didn’t see this thread until the redesign.

    well – as you know I am doing presell pages – content pages hosted on old and authoritive domains… and with the recent development in the last months and people pointing at me saying “talk to that guy about edu links” I thought I’d even need to rename myself to “edupageman” :-)

    Well – anyway… I appreciate all the work you did here so far and that you continue to provide top quality work here… a top read.

    Hi Todd. I’m the owner and principal of a small SEO firm in Baltimore, MD. I drop by your blog maybe once a week or so – its in my rotation of about 10 blogs that I read. I do appreciate your outlook on things.

    To get more personal, I’ll be turning 26 in a few days and have been working for myself for roughly 3 years, the past 2 1/2 have been focused on SEO as my firm’s core offering. We’re just about to go from 1 1/2 people (myself with a little part-time help) to myself and about 3 part-time people, in a new office. Its a bit of a jump for us, but exciting nonetheless.

    Anyhow, best of luck to you in all your ventures!

  • rumblepup

    A couple of years ago, I was having a problem with a site, and someone told me to contact you. I did, via e-mail, and you graciously took the time to answer my questions and give me feedback.

    I’m sure you do this on a little grander scale than now than you did then, but first impressions always go the longest way.

    I’ve been lurking ever since. Now that I’m playing the game, thought I should stand up and say:

    “Hello Señor!”

  • SAM

    Hey Todd
    Thank you for all the valuable information. It is rare a person shares valuable information for free.

    SEO is at a turning point, either we can be considered lawyers who whore out the information. Or would you rather share the information free of charge to make the world a better place. For the record I might have 20% of the knowledge you do, If that.

    Here is a question I put to you and any one reading this.

    The moment before you die do you want to be at peace or in fear?

    I did the military thing and war is not the answer, extending the hand to people who are willing to work hard but do not have the information to prosper is in my opinion the key.

    The top Seo’s around the world have the power to make a dramatic impact on this world, why not band together and make a diffrence???

    Together a small group of people can change the world.
    Is 2007 going to be the year?
    Peace and happy New Year Sam

For whatever reason your blog was never at the top of my list to read & it definitely should have been. As someone relatively new to SEO, I really appreciate all of the effort you put into answering the questions about Google’s SER factors over at SEOmoz. I have just turned into a REGULAR reader of your site :)

  • Jim Hathaway

    At PubCon Boston Apr06 I told you how much I enjoyed your writing and how I really needed to get my own blog going. Well…it took another 13 months but I finally got started. One of my first acts was send them off to read your stimulating piece on search marketing warfare. At least I finally got that stake in the ground. Now the learning curve begins. ;-)

    Hey Todd, happy you have the place to say Hi!

    I started the “worlds 6th search engine marketing blog” but found the process of continuity boring, so it has fallen backk into the dust…..

    I am interested in bringing the concept of AUGMENTATION as expressed by Douglas Engelbart into a 100 Augmentation Research Centers across the Globe, and want to start with the anti-IED crowd (improvised explosive devices are responsible for up to 70 percent of US casualties in IRAQ), by getting them to communicate in a more wholesome and effective manner.

    I may smoke too much pot to make this happen….

    Todd, you are in the top 5 SEO bloggers, along with Jim B. (includes links to wbp tools), Aaron Wall and 2 others.

    Keep up the great work!

    Hey Todd,

    Been following this blog for awhile now, just now decided to explore more of the site…

    Just want to thank you for all your insight put in a way that actually makes me want to read it (imagine that). I converted to search a little over a year ago and need all the info and tricks of the trade I can handle.

    Thanks again, keep it coming!

  • Bruno

    today is the first time I stop by reading this blog, and I think it’s really great with some awesome stuff.
    I’m a from Brazil and I got by your site trough some gamasutra newsletter I received today.

    About games I have done some casual games prototypes in flash just to learn, and now trying to get on some core game prototypes trying c++, java and c#, but still a little bit lost in this world…
    …I’m also trying out 3d modeling with blender. And I think about keep doing it until I get the skills to build my own game projects and than start a small game studio.

    Pleased to meet you


  • Marcus

    Hi Todd. I’ve seen you speak at SES NYC. I’ll be at the San Jose incarnation. Hope to see you there as well.

  • CathEase

    I used to stay on the SEO cutting edge 5 years ago because I was fascinated with it. I let the ball drop to take time out for personal tragedy that has hit me hard. As a homegrown webmaster and SEOptimizer I will look to you for industry understanding, nice to find you. I’m looking for grabbing more traffic, actually grabbing more public outrage, and it seems its harder today than before.

    Oh, I think webmasters should hand out prizes for typos, because there should never be any. Something like a set of 600 count thread set of sheets. lets all make it an industry standard…only half kidding.

  • Jerry Flattum

    Hi Todd, et. al.:
    Just launched a new startup, Entertainment Cyberscope, Inc., Jan 2011. The Entertainment Cyberscope-Portal is a comprehensive portal/blog to all things behind-the-scenes in entertainment. So, your article on Resource hooks hit the proverbial nail on the head.

    It seems SEO has mechanical/tactical components to it, for instance installing Google Analytics and having a Tweet This button on your site.

    But I really don’t want to play “tricks” to get traffic. I like learning about how to generate traffic organically. People come to your site because they want to. Thanx for incredibly informative and well written articles. Oh…should I add my link? Ha!
