So I thought I would throw together a quick visual and see how many meetings I am in in a given week. Right now, I am average between 50 and 60. It will be interesting to see what happens with this trend overtime. 

Victim of SEO Optimization

The only traffic to my website is from people creating external links
#firstworldproblem

So part of my job is to do SEO optimization. It is not my entire job, but it is one of the items in my toolbox that I use on a regular basis. Well, on our family website that I never update, Telford Family dot org, I started to get some comments on a post I did on our camping and outdoors nursery linking to a couple mural websites. Well, it turns out that the post is the number one search term for “camping nursery” on google. Since we had such a high ranking, some SEO expert was out there trying to improve their site’s score by including a link from my thread, or at least real traffic from people viewing the link.

I went in and moderated the comments down, but maybe, for good karma, I should have let them stay. Someone might do the same for one of my clients some day.
