SEO Day 2
Dave has a better start to the day but is anxious to see how the UK stock market opens, so hangs around at home until 8AM, thinks that AIG will go pop before the month is out.
Dave arrives at 9am. His first comment is that we are indeed heading for a depression not recession, surprised that this comes as a shock to many, especially as there as been so much focus about this from the media. More importantly though the DaveN blog is still not feeding out correctly, the indexed content is less than fresh. Will Google be kind to us ? Dave mentions friends within the industry who have had similar experiences with their blog and it has taken 3-4 weeks to get back in.
Google news is the topic of discussion in the office, more on that later. Dave takes a call from a client to get up to speed with the direction they want to go in, as usual a flurry of ideas come from the DaveN corner.
Dave now in a meeting with one of the original UK Seos and yes I’m earwigging you’d be surprised the amount of information you can learn in this office.
Meanwhile, the new Dan and myself are reviewing the latest in-house development project.
Dave is spending the day with one of his oldest friends in the industry NFFC, he was an Administrator at webmasterworld when Dave first Joined. Emails and few phone calls done in the interim, he’s still miffed about Google News and the United Airlines so I he is tasking one of us to see how hard it is to get some quotes from companies in the travel sector..
Still talking SEO and how the industry has changed over the years. I reflect on this and wish I had been in the industry longer. Talk focuses on major corporations on the net and their site SEO. I smile as NFFC works on an Apple Mac, I know just how much Dave dislikes them hehe.
Dave is talking to a client about effective URLS and giving site advice. He stresses the importance of being descriptive on web pages about a product and getting the right call to action in. I know it’s going to be a long day/ night for him once again.
