The Resources Mashup

Here are some of the best articles I have seen on Google+, retweeted on @kikolani, and read in RSS subscriptions this week. Some must reads included for those in search engine optimization consulting and those looking to create the best search engine optimization company.

Blogging / Writing

Business / Career

Freelancing

  • When The Project Is Over – Getting Rockin’ Referrals – Truth be told, even in good times, waiting for the phone to ring is a bad idea.

Whilst there are other search engines that are worth considering, you need to set your expectations realistically.

    Hi Kristi,

    Thanks for the great roundup! These Fetching Friday posts have become something for me to look forward to at the end of each week.

    Loved the post on seoMoz about using memes to build backlinks. So far that’s my favorite from this week, but thanks to you I’ve got a lot of other great posts to keep me busy during the weekend. Thanks,

    Andrew
