Outstanding SEO learning tool
Once a week check out #SEOChat on Twitter at 8pm Central Time
On Thursdays at 8pm Central time the wonderful folks at www.seo.com put on a twitter chat about Seo. You can view the #SEOChat weekly summary at www.searchmarketingweekly.com . Ash Buckles, the president at SEO.com and Greg Shuey, VP of client services are the usual hosts.
I use Tweetdeck and have a column within Tweetdeck to follow #SEOCHAT. #SEOChat is the hashtag for the weekly SEO discussion. It is a fast paced discussion with the added fun challenge of having to make answers in 140 characters or less. This week I had a question on using Regular Expression or Regex, in Google Analytics, since Regex was a component of one of the answers given by guest Rachael Gerson (@RachelGerson). The summary of Rachael’ chat can be found at http://www.searchmarketingweekly.com/summary-google-analytics-uncover-seo-opportunities-seochat-rachael-gerson/
#SEOChat participants are extra helpful
Ash Buckles of seo.com (@ashbuckels) and Annie Cushing (@AnnieCushing) from www.Blueglass.com both sent me messages with extra resources to check out.
Ash suggested a book by Ben Forta (@BenForta) Teach yourself Regular Expression in 10 minutes – available on Amazon.
Annie Cushing has written two great articles on Regular Expressions for beginners
Annie is reportedly a shoe aficionado .
If you enjoy learning about SEO, #seochat is fun place to hang out. If you get really fiesty, Alan Bleiweiss might call you an A$shat but usually with a smile. You can read more about Alan at http://alanbleiweiss.com/
Scott Dodge of www.scott-dodge.com also had the suggestion to get my GAIQ or Google Analytics Individual Qualification. Excellent idea, Scott!
