I recently did an interview with Neil Patel over at Pronet Advertising blog talking mostly about the SEO business, SEO and PR, social media optimization, blogging and about the future of search.
Speaking of SMO, Danny Sullivan sent me an email last night about participating on a social media optimization panel. I am very much looking forward to that. As you know, I like to talk about SMO. :) Unless something major changes, this will be the last SES Danny is involved with.

Podcast Interview on SEO and Press Releases

You can find the podcast interview over at the Novita Issue Communications Blog where Ernie Landante keeps me honest and runs through questions on the synergy of search engine optimization and public relations as well as some of the mechanics of the press release optimization process. At least until I started making death threats. :)

The good people over at Web Certain have started a new “Ask the Experts” feature for their newsletter and in a brave move, decided to do an interview on SEO and blog marketing with yours truly. Topics range from Google dominance to how clueless most corporate executives are about blogging.

For some variety and insight, Our team put together a short video with information on one particular client campaign involving search engine optmization and public relations with impressive results.
