2012 Internet Marketing Ninjas “State of the Company”

Every year at the company for as long back as I can remember, I’ve given an annual “State of the Union Address” to all the Ninjas. One night last week I was on my way home when “it came to me” and when I got home I ended up writing for several hours, of what turned out to be 22 pages (text was a little big so I could read… [Read More…]

Kris Jones – Chairman of Internet Marketing Ninjas

Last night we put out a press release that Kris Jones has joined Internet Marketing Ninjas as Chairman. There are some things in official press releases that aren’t said…and I’d like to say a few of those things here. I’ve known Kris for years, and I always had a lot of respect for his company (PepperJam) which he built up into something “Great”, and later sold for some ungodly sum… [Read More…]

Ninja Song Parodies

Song parodies have been a long standing part of Ninja Tradition. When you work in SEO long enough sooner or later everything becomes about search engines and links, and you get inspired to re-write songs. Or at least we do.  So to carry on the Legacy of Jim’s early work like “The Linker” , “Linking Dirty” and of course, Company theme songs, we add these new classics to the collection…. [Read More…]

Rick DeJarnette Joins Ninjas! Former Bing Webmaster Center and Bing SEO Consultant

This past fall I went to Vegas with 8 of my Ninjas for Pubcon. Not only did we make some great connections with people who are now clients, but we also made several other great connections. One of my Ninjas, Sean, met Rick and had a few great talks, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to connect with Rick then. Sean brought Rick’s name up a number of times over the… [Read More…]

Ninjas Make Surprisingly Good Neighbors

At first thought, you might not want live next door to a band of Ninjas. You think, they’ll be up all night scaling walls, they’ll borrow my Nunchucks and never return them, and they probably won’t rake their leaves either. I get it. No one wants a dojo of degenerates bringing down property values for everyone. Fortunately, we’re not that kind of Ninja. In fact this year we’ve worked hard… [Read More…]

A Ninja Home-Coming

For some people, moving home at 31, might be an indication that life… isn’t going so well. In my case it’s actually kind of the opposite.  Because for me, home is WeBuildPages. 6 Years ago, I had never even heard the words “Search Engine Optimization”. I certainly had no knowledge of the power of links or the numerous tricks and techniques for getting a website ranked in Google. I saw… [Read More…]
