Hi Steve & danmaynard -

I've been a professional Search Engine Optimizer for a few years now, but I don't profess to know the answer to every single question that can be posed about the industry (there is a lot out there in terms of SEO). I just paid a subscription in order to have access to this forum so that I could pick your brain periodically when I have a question that I'm not sure of the answer on.

Please don't misinterpret this as criticism, but I'm curious what your credentials are in terms of your SEO experience, and what qualifications you have that position you to be a mentor and leader in the industry.

Knowing the answer to this will help me to have more confidence in the answers you provide, and in turn will allow me to demonstrate more confidence to my own customers.

I appreciate your feedback.

Hi impalanetworks and welcome

Personally, I used to run a site focusing on Joomla SEO for several years. We did SEO for customers and for people who were members of our site.

Dan, who does a lot of the video courses, works for himself, running and optimizing his own sites.

One thing to note, you won't hear us claim to be leaders in the industry. If we were, our prices might more like $300 per month :) seobook.com/signup.php

Our expertise is taking solid SEO knowledge and helping you apply it to Joomla, WordPress or Drupal. The same is true with coding. We're not world renowned CSS or PHP developers, we but sure know how to apply them to our CMSs.

HI impalanetworks

It's Dan here.

I started doing SEO in 1999 before Google was a household name. While I do have a good solid background in SEO I can say that I cannot in all honesty profess to be a thought leader on the subject. However I have studied organic SEO for many years and implemented for just as long. I do have though a circle of a trusted network of SEO experts with literally 100's of websites at my disposal for testing purposes that we periodically monitor. I currently do a lot of YouTube SEO for myself and clients. I've built several sites and earned a full time living driving Google organic traffic to my sites and converting traffic to sales.

Cheers

Dan
