Our little venture into the world of podcasting continued this week over on SEO Dojo Radio. This week have had two broadcasts with our regular weekly show and a special edition with Dana Lookadoo reporting from Blue Glass LA (internet marketing conference).

Dana Does Blue Glass

In this show we had one of our fav Dojo members and prolific conference hound, Dana Lookadoo. Dana joined us from Glue Glass LA to fill us in on some of the key take-aways and convresations over the first day and a half. It was fun and informative, she makes a great reporter. A big thanks and we look forward to having her back on from other events.

Give it a listen HERE.

Dojo Radio News

And today we posted our weekly session of news, views and the guest of the week. I was another fun session in which we talked about ;

  • Google Webmaster Tools – is that data for real?
  • Yahoo link data – will the SEO world's tools be broken?
  • Google v Bing – is there any point optimizing for Bing?
  • Google's Meta Web purchase – what will it mean for the future?
  • Search Nuetrality – the Government shouldn't regulate algos..nuff said.

Talking to Tony

And in the second half of the show we had Tony Verre on to talk to us about the research (and posts on the Trail) that he did on the differences between Google and Bing. We also talked strategy, SEO reporting and otherwise just dug into the world of search. Tony is a smart cookie (for a 3g hehe) and it was a fun time.

A huge thanks as always to all those that helped out this week and I look forward to more and more great sessions in the future. We're slowly getting the hand of this – I hope you can live with our growing pains. GIVE IT A LISTEN!

If you have ideas for guests we should have on, topics we should cover – drop me a line or comment.

Yup, we have a podcast

Over at the SEO Training Dojo we have been holding a regular Friday chat session with the members and invited guests for some 40 weeks now. While they've been immensely popular and fun to do, some folks wanted more. What they asked us for was a weekly podcast so they could listen along at work/home instead of reading through 2hrs of transcript (which can be a bit much to be honest)

Ok, ask and you shall receive. We recorded a trial-run last week to see if the gang was gonna like it which they did. So this week we're pleased to announce the official launch of our PodCast; SEO Dojo Radio!

The Trail is Growing!

Hey gang, we going to be expanding things over the next while here on the Trail and adding some fresh blood into the mix. Over the last few years we've had a TON of great guest posters and have decided to step it up. So what we're after are;

  1. Regular writers - these will be columnists who will have a regular spot on the site and their own dedicated bio page. We're not looking for a lot, maybe 2 posts per month.
  2. Guest posters - will be folks that don't have enough time for being a regular, but can drop a post every now and again, much as we've had in the past.

We have been putting a little shout-out on Twitter and already have a few folks in place. I will introduce them all to you next week. It hasn't been an easy process as I am not going to just take the first so-and-so that comes along. While experience is great, it isn't key. I am more intherested in people with the drive to express themselves and a good personality/style to their writing. Topics can vary as we have sections here on SEO, Analytics, Conversions, Social Media, Learning SEO and more.

It is a good opportunity for writers old and new. At least I like to think so. The site is reasonably well known in the search industry and has won SEMMY's 2 years running. Last year even a few guest posters were among the 7 nominations. We get some coverage from locales such as Search Engine Land, Search Engine Roundtable, Search Engine Journal and Watch. Not to mention MediaPost and even USA Today.

Long time supporter, founding member and all around great gal (Dazzlin) Donna Fontenot is running a little experiment where she's offering to answer ANY question for the low low price of $5 (like my sales pitch or what?...ok search geek here...sigh). I noticed this and thought it would be an interesting thing to get involved in...sooooooo

Ask Dazzlin Donna a Question

Yup... that's a whopping 80%+ off the sticker price. All you have to do is go to Donna's site here and send yer question and $5 in. Be sure to also mention you'd like to get in on the SEO Dojo deal and she will send me the confirmation... and that's it. The beauty of it? Well, you can also ask as many questions you want from our Dojo membership as well, (once your a member). What more can you ask for?

So what are you waiting for? Deal of a lifetime right? Get started here!

We are all teachers; we are all students

Strength in numbers

One of the most important elements that we wanted to bring when we created the SEO Training Dojo, was a lack of egos. All too often in the internet marketing world we see jackasses strutting around with their peacock feathers fluffled for all to see… I can’t tell you the number of times people have come to me about such-and-such (cough) A-lister SEO all but brushing them off at a conference acting puffy and pompous (or related tales). This is something we sought to avoid.

You see, regardless of people’s odd affinities for hero worship, we’re simply a bunch of search marketers nothing more, nothing less. There is NO SUCH THING as rock stars or A-listers… the concept has always left me shaking my head, that’s for sure. No one outside of our little niche has a clue who we are. And ‘industry leaders’? There are few of those I’d dare say are suspect as well since most of the more prominent SEOs tend to be ‘more prominent’ from a profit motive than one to lead.
