nick: encyclo, real name: Richard, location: Canada (Quebec).

I'm another wmw refugee (thanks to bill for the invite!), was mod/admin there from 2005-2009, I bailed out not long after Woz left. I currently combine a corporate day job with being a night owl working on my own sites.

I'm amazed at how many forum nicks I recognize (or remember) although I don't know most of you well.

I think I've been Brad or brad at most seo forums.

In the early 1980's I sold computers, mainly Kaypro CP/M luggable models referred to as 'Darth Vader's Lunchbox', plus a few mini-computers running Unix. 

In 2000 I started building niche directories as a quit smoking scheme. Enjoyed it.  Needed to learn how search worked. Joined SEO forums. ;D

Since 2000 I've moderated at: Searchking, Spiderfood, Searchguild forums, been a member of SEF, WmW, Threadwatch, Cre8 and others.

Brad Enslen?  Good to see you buddy.

Spiderfood was a good one on your list. Small but nice.

Once a spammer, always a spammer, you just get to do it in a suit now. BTW good to see you in Vegas Las Vegas, albeit briefly.

hola, i'm seoboy.  based in northern california.

first used that handle back at wmw, where i was fairly active between 00-04.  checked out when the knucklehead-to-knowledge ratio tilted, and also as business picked up on the homefront.

littleman is an old war buddy.  we started working together in the late 90s and have continued on-and-off since.

i got started on the seo side when it was the wild west.  back in the day, littleman and i built a sizeable spider database and did some pretty sophisticated stuff with cloaking and link farms and landing pages and tracking and whatnot -- well, sophisticated in 2000 anyway.  we built targeted keyword lists for clients, grabbed a lot of top rankings, and sold clicks to them on a cpc basis.  it was all in perl; i miss perl.  then goto/overture signed all their big partnerships and adwords select launched soon after, and the whole landscape changed. 

later, in 2002, my co. built our first bid management software in for arbitrage purposes (remember, we sold clicks).  that soon evolved into a full-on paid search management business.  we got pretty big, wrote some cool software, and eventually sold out.

so my old-school chops are in seo, but i'm really better known as a paid search and analytics guy these days.  i was even a moderator at SEW forums for a while, before i quickly discovered it to be a waste of time.  :)

these days i've got a few projects in the hopper, as we all do i'm sure.
i'll be in-and-out, but try to contribute when i can.

Hi all - thanks for the invite. Some of you remember me from WmW - if not, check out my LinkedIn profile at http://www.linkedin.com/in/tedster - but you may not know that I've got a corporate position as "senior search analyst" for a Manhattan-based agency, Converseon.

We're quite the full service agency, with a 9 year background in social media -- yeah, there's a whole lot more to it than most people are seeing. For example, we are one of only two agencies with access to the full "firehose" of Twitter data - 100 million messages a day. We had to build a new data center just to mine that flood.

Exploring the interface between SEO and SMM is an absolute blast - and I especially enjoy bringing technical precision into the social media mix - something Converseon already does really well anyway.

We're SOOOOO corporate it's scary sometimes, but it's a good stretch for me. The folks in the agency are great to work with and very happy in their work, too. In fact, it's boom time for us. We tripled revenue last year and only doubled our staff size.

What this means for my life is commuting between Boston and New York about 3 times a month, sometimes more. I know the Amtrak staff pretty well by now.

Nick: BoL  , Real Name: Richard  Where: from Scotland but living in Canada

Been learning web related stuff for 10 years, i suppose my trade is database management and programming... but can dabble with some client side stuff, and a bit seo.

Ive been self employed making cash online for the past 8 or so years... firstly by myself and lately as part of a team of 3. Rather than making sites I find myself making systems to promote sites and follow metrics, The systems made range from 'getting quality diverse links' to a rankchecker system with over a quarter billion results and lots of domain/url metadata.

Sometimes it seems like digging roads would be a more rewarding day job but for the most part working online offers plenty.
