Domaining SEO Sunday: Meet PPC Ian

I had been corresponding with PPC Ian before TRAFFIC Las Vegas this year but had the chance to meet him in-person for the first time at the conference. Since then we’ve continued to correspond frequently and I’m really impressed with all of the things he is doing. He is a SEM and SEO expert and has a great blog where he shares a lot of his tips and strategies with others. Recently Ian was featured on in a great post titled, Want to become a PPC Search Marketing professional? Meet PPC Ian.

Ian is actually the Director of SEM for a large publicly traded company – that’s right, he’s on the other side of the equation helping companies market themselves online. Ian is an SEO Guru and even gives-away a presentation he gave at Stanford for free on his blog!

While I was attending TRAFFIC and Ian was at SMX learning about the latest and greatest in SEO and SEM. He’s staying on top of the trends and definitely a rising star with a blog I would highly recommend to all of my readers. If you want to learn more about Ian definitely take the time to read the great post on

I think that on SEO Sunday it is important for me to not only share SEO tips and techniques to to also expose you to some of the experts in the industry!

    Ian’s blog is very informative.

    However, he needs to learn a key marketing tenet, and that is that reverse type is horrible. It makes reading a struggle. Dark type on a light background is much, much better.
    Just a fact,

    Thank you so much for featuring my blog! I sincerely appreciate it and am very honored. It has been one of my big 2010 goals to learn all about domaining (while developing my domain portfolio). I can say without a doubt that a HUGE chunk of my knowledge this year has come from reading, watching Domainvestors Television, chatting with you on the phone (or in person), and working with you on a large number of projects. I thank you Morgan for not only featuring my blog, but for helping me obtain my domaining goals! You are a true educator and inspiration in this industry, I’m so honored to be mentioned on your blog.

    Arbel and Dan, thanks so much for the kind words, I very much appreciate it! You guys are the best!

    Mark, thank you very much for the feedback. You bring up a great point and echo the feedback I have received from some other PPC Ian readers as well. While I started off with the goal of making my blog design a bit more artsy, I’m excited to say that I’m working with Unique Blog Designs on some enhancements including the background/text contrast. UBD is the best in the business, they originally designed my blog in addition to blogs much bigger than mine such as Mark, your feedback is appreciated and until the enhancements go live, I encourage you to subscribe to my full RSS feed as another option.

    Thanks again, Morgan, and happy 4th!
    All the best,
