Former moderator Rand Fishkin has found it necessary to turn his attention elsewhere (he’s a busy guy!) and I will do my best to pick up where he has left off, keeping the Cre8asite Forums exciting, hospitable, and spam-free.
How Cre8asite Can Help You
Cre8asite is one of the SEO/SEM industry’s most respected forums and, perhaps, needs little introduction. I am always recommending that people become members there. You will find all levels of skill represented. Cre8asite’s membership includes seasoned experts such as Bill Slawski and Barry Schwartz, but also extends an incredibly warm welcome to complete newcomers.
Cre8asite Forums’ motto is there is no such thing as a ‘dumb’ question, and new members immediately see the way this is put into action within the many different categories.
What is immediately apparent at Cre8asite is the non-judgmental, education-oriented atmosphere. If the sometimes-hostile, contentious, or juvenile aspects of certain Social Media sites are off-putting to you, you are in for a happy surprise at Cre8asite Forums. Discussion is always respectful there, and I really appreciate the level of maturity of the members.
Whether you’re not sure what a title tag is for, or you want to talk about latent semantic indexing, you will find your questions, theories, and comments taken seriously. Membership is free, and I will be the first to attest that belonging to Cre8asite has made me a more confident, well-rounded businesswoman.
My hope in becoming a mod of the SEO category at Cre8asite Forums is to be of real help to newcomers and to assist in facilitating truly educational discussions about this facet of the industry. I also hope to have plenty of chances to talk about Local Search issues there, and I would love to see any of my readers walk in the Cre8asite door.
Because so many of us are small business owners or independent contractors, much of our work time may be solo time. I have found that having the opportunity to chat with peers, in a non-competitive environment, has been of immense help to me on many different levels. It is wonderful to find a resource where I can talk to people who care about what I care about, professionally.
I want to offer my most sincere thanks to Kim Krause Berg and all of the admins and moderators at Cre8asite for the warm welcome they have given me to this family-style industry fixture.
