At the time this customer contacted me inquiring about search marketing services, they had no clue that their website and 3 blogs were operating 4 different WordPress installs in a shared hosting environment.

Talk about slow as molasses? Continue reading
DNSeattle was everything it was billed to be and more.
The weather was perfect. The location and venue were great. There was a good selection of music, food, and beverage on hand.
And of course, there was not a shortage of domain hobbyists, investors, and professionals in attendance at Amazon’s campus (Terry Avenue) in downtown Seattle.
