Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes…

It has been more than 10 years since I began working for Virante/Angular. In that time I have made incredible friends, created exciting technologies, and had the privilege to work with brilliant people doing wonderful things for great clients. But all good things come to an end. I honestly cannot look back at the last 10 years and lodge a legitimate complaint. The other executives who have helped lead our company along the way have done nothing but give me the resources, support, and gentle nudges-back-to-reality I have needed to grow my own knowledge and build great things for our clients.

2015: The Year of Broken Link Building

Every year begins with a flood of questions to seo experts about their predictions or recommendations for the upcoming year. I am normally careful not to get involved into too many of these forays because they seem speculative or risky given Google’s penchant to change courses so quickly. When your target is moving so fast, so frequently, and seemingly erratically, it is hard to make predictions and recommendations. So, how should we proceed? One of the common responses is to give very generic, holistic tips like “build your brand”, or “users first”. While I think these are absolutely true, they don’t offer much in the way of actionable advice. Some of the lengthier responses by good SEOs do go into detail on these issues, and...
