Hello World!

An appropriate title for a new and refreshed blog, don't you think? At least, my focus was always on the Dutch speaking part of the world, and now I'm targeting the whole world (the English speaking part).

For people who don't know me, and there are a lot of them ;) I once wrote some blogs on my friend Yoast his site. They were about tracking SEO rankings with Google Analytics. And it was reasonably succesful, I almost got a Semmy for it. Other cool thing is my Search Submit© tool, you must absolutely check it out.

The site still needs some work, some speed tweaks and some translation. The most popular Dutch articles will be translated to new English ones, the rest will stay in Dutch. And I already have some cool new posts queued up, ready to hit the RSS scrapers ;)

So, what do you think? Do you like the new design and the new logo?

  • Within a few days or weeks on top ranks for whatever keyword you choose? If that was the case, what would all those SEO companies do all day?
