Wendy Meyeroff from WM Medical Communications, Inc. was sparked by one of my recent blog posts to ask a few questions. She's a print writer with lots of experience who also writes web content. She claims she's not a "techie," and says she only first heard the terms SEO and keywords in the beginning of this year. She's wondering about two things:
I could spend a fortune signing up for classes and investing in books, and also spend hours reading. But I'm a hands-on type of person. If I had a tutor, maybe a more techno-savvy "partner" I could probably figure out Google rankings and Twitter (totally confuses me) in a few hours. Trying to do it alone, I'm just thoroughly confused. Does anyone know a place where I could barter: the techie who'd train me in exchange for some really nifty articles they could backlink to enhance their visibility? (Or maybe something else?)
I started a blog in Blogger, but stopped 'cause someone told me any ads I might glean would enrich Google, not me. In another place they said you must use WordPress…but they added you need a techie to help you get started or it would take forever. It looks like you're using Typepad. I just wanted to ask your attendees to give me an opinion. Which one is worth either the money or time to invest in? (Again, maybe I could set up a bartering arrangement.)
Any ideas or advice we can share?
