Epic Change – The New Search Marketing Wisdom

What would the search industry be without evolutionary progress?  It would be a shadow of its current self, that’s for sure!  And with that in mind, I’m excited to announce evolutionary progress for Search Marketing Wisdom!  A true sea-change in focus and purpose.

So Why Change A Good Thing?

As proud as I am of how far along this blog has come since my first article in 2007, (from no readers to my most successful articles having been viewed upwards of 9,000 times to date), I only have X amount of time these days to show up for this blog.

I then had an epiphany wash over me recently (read that yesterday morning before the sun came up).  It’s time to take this site beyond my voice.  Yeah, yeah, I love hearing my own voice.  You know that already…

The reality is this site DOES average between 10,000 and 15,000 visits a month.  And with that, comes a sense of responsibility to provide quality content, based on current industry reality.  Which means more than just SEO.  And since I’m not an expert in all areas, and that aforementioned limited capacity I’ve got, it’s time to bring on board others who can deliver great content…

A Powerhouse Of Authors

The first big change you’ll see here is the addition of some of the most intelligent, passionate and knowledgeable authors you’ll ever have the fortune to read.  For starters we’ve got

  • Michelle Stinson Ross (Social, blogging, a bit of everything)
  • Dana Lookadoo (SEO, Engagement Optimization)
  • Annie Cushing (Analytics)
  • Angie Nikoleychuk (Copywriting, optimizing content)
  • Amanda Orson (Affiliate Marketing, Local SEO)
  • Pamela Lund (PPC)

While I’ve associated a specific area of expertise with each author, they’ve got free editorial reign, so they’re going to be writing about whatever they’re moved to, even diatribes if they want…


Schedule?  What Schedule?

We’re still working out writing schedules – some will contribute more frequently than others, and every one of us has a lot going on in 2011. Yet whether you see one article in a year or once a week,  twice a month then none for a couple of months, I promise you, every one of these people is someone you’re going to want to pay attention to if you already aren’t doing so.

All Women?

Hey – I only came up with this crazy idea yesterday morning, and I’m still waiting to hear back from some people, including, yes, amazingly enough, some great guys… So chill out okay?  Besides, women tend to follow their intuition more, and in this industry, that gives them an advantage.  So shush your horses there and just recognize how much you’re going to learn here!

More To Come

And if you thought adding these great people to the list of authors here was epic, just wait – keep your ears perked, your eyes focused, and your breath bated…

WTF is bated breath anyhow?  No, I don’t have the energy to go look that up because I’ve been up since 2AM (it’s now just after 1AM the next morning).  And time for me to go rest my brain.  It’s been a long, amazing and magical day for Search Marketing Wisdom…

Anyhow, more authors are on the horizon, and the site itself is going to transform as well…

So here’s to a magical and blessed 2011 for everyone!
