5 Years of Marketing Jive
Monday, October 31, 2011
In October of 2006, I started a blog in hopes really of learning more about blogging and some SEO issues that I wanted to test from time to time. I like to write, but as anyone with a blog or two knows, starting a blog can be a time consuming endeavour. 

It has been five years since I started a little blog called "SEO-Space".  I started the blog in part because I wanted to share some thoughts about my SEO experiences and offer some tips for others to leverage.  There are a lot of SEO resources out there, I wanted to create one that was a good resource, one that was:
  • a useful resource
  • simple to read and follow
  • offered great tips
  • shared some industry news
  • provided the odd opinion here and there
Twelve hundred posts later and here we are.  I have covered a lot of different topics most centering around search and online marketing.  Over the past five years, Marketing Jive has seen hundreds of thousands of visitors from all corners of the world visit.  While it might not seem that impressive to you, you have to remember that Marketing Jive is pretty much a one man show.  While we have had guest bloggers, pretty much 99% of the post have been by yours truly.

We have covered a diverse set of topics from SEO best practices, content strategies, marketing buzzwords, keyword research and the like.  It has been fun to see just which posts have generated the most traffic over the years.

Thanks for all of the folks that have visited Marketing Jive over the years.  A special thanks to our regular readers.  As some of you may have noticed, the frequency of my posts has slowed.  This is in part a result of me wanting to spend more time with my little guy Elias and my family.  In fact, for those interested,  I will be looking at selling my Marketing Jive blog so that I can focus my efforts with some new initiatives.  Feel free to contact me for more details.

It has been a great five years.
