Video: Lisa Barone on the early days of SEO blogging –

It was so much fun to sit down and chat one-on-one with Lisa Barone, a former SEO blogger and now the Chief Marketing Officer at Overit. Some of you may remember Lisa from her days as an SEO blogger at Bruce Clay. The two of us spent many hours sitting in the front row of SEO conferences “live blogging” the sessions back in the old days.

Now, while she has moved on to crush bigger problems as a VP at a successful full-service digital agency, I am still writing stories about search. But you can tell from the interview that Lisa is still super passionate about SEO and the SEO community. She spoke about her entry into the SEO space and why she felt the SEO community enjoyed her writing. She wrote, and wrote incredibly well, in a way that connected with many in our industry. She felt it was because she was new to SEO and had to write from that perspective. But we all know that how Lisa writes, how she communicates with the reader, is what sets her apart from other writers.

We spent a lot of time chatting about the older days of SEO and then moved on to how her career has changed over the years. She has realized a lot of success and it was just awesome chatting with her. Oh, you can still follow Lisa on Twitter @lisabarone.

A warning, the video is really the two of us giving each other a hard time. We both had fun with it and I hope you enjoy the humor.

Dan was a delight to work with. I needed a few headshots taken for my LinkedIn profile and Dan provided the easiest and most comfortable experience using state-of-the art equipment in a very professional setting. Also, the turn-around time on results was quick and I felt completely engaged and satisfied during the entire process. I highly recommend his services.Donny RitcharoenDecember 19, 2023

It’s so rare in these times to find one man with so much wow factor and more rare to find men with similar interest and passion in their life journey as myself . Dan Elliott has been introduced to many in what is now considered as the Terror Dome , a place where many dreams are not deferred they are detoured to routes that lead to dead ends , he comes in full of optimism so infectious that he, maybe with out knowing is energizing those who have ventured where others would fear going with just the right jolt to forge on in the way of helping fallen humanity … His various fields of expertise has helped many in my region and I can only imagine the number he has effected beyond those I know … from day one I knew “ this was a man of kindred spirit “ Dan Elliott is a Gem and adds glimmer to things he touches … I’m a Witness ….and eternally grateful….L.Rashaan RichMay 21, 2022

We'd used some other agencies before, but man, they simply knocked us all over. After being in business for 30 years, I wonder how much more business we'd be doing if we'd hired them earlier.Rebecca HoneaMay 17, 2019
