Chris Boggs, manager, Search Engine Optimization for Brulant has joined Search Engine Watch Forums as Associate Editor. Chris is a highly sought after speaker on the circuit. He's presented at Search Engine Strategies (SES), PubCon and SMX among others.
Chris and Frank write the weekly SEM Crossfire column for SEW Experts: debating, arguing, and discussing the hottest search engine marketing and SEO issues in the industry.
So what can you expect from Chris in the Forums? The best example may be found here.
I also asked Chris to warn me about what kind of trouble he plans getting me into:
"I am very excited to become more involved with SEW Forums. I can really say that I learned a lot from the forums when it they first started, and I have continued to benefit from community participation. I have unfortunately had less time to participate at SEW forums as I used to, but I plan on ramping back up during the off-hours. One thing I am tied of seeing at SEW and other forums is so-called experts coming in and making absurd or non-factual statements."
Hey, me too, Chris. But what do you plan to do about it?
"Those types of participants can take my new position announcement as notice that I'm tired of being nice. I and other Moderators plan on urging people to back up their statements with proof, or suffer public ridicule. Those people that are newer to the industry and openly want to learn (and do not claim falsely to be experts) will hopefully be less likely to be derailed by advice based on zero sum experience."
Wow. You heard it here first.
Hello Chris, goodbye B.S.
