Link Ninjas – SEO Pow Wow – Cheers!

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while….the Link Ninja training and SEO PowWow was keeping me pretty busy this past week.

On Tuesday night Aaron came in and we ended up going to dinner with Todd as well. By the time we were done with dinner, the roads had turned pretty icy, so I decided it was best to spend the night in Troy instead of driving home…so we ended up belling up to the bar and I ordered eneough drinks so that we ended up getting kinda silly, shared some private SEO tools with each other, and made some SEO deals and talked some black hat stuff along the way. I think I ended up going to bed around 2:30 am.

Wednesday was day 1 of Link Ninjas. At the ninjas training our team poured our knowledge freely into the Link Ninjas. I think it went really well.

Wednesday night was the SEO PowWow at Browns Brew Pub.  I don’t know about everyone else, but I had a grand time, even knowing that my head was going to going to hurt the next day. We stayed at Browns until they threw us out, then we went to another bar. I think I ended up going to bed around 2:30 again – great night.

Thursday was day 2 of Link Ninjas (1 on 1 training) and I think that went really well as well.

Overall all, it was a blast – just seemed like 1 big ole party with SEO chatting all along.

Kat at SEOMoz has some coverage here as well.

Here’s some pics I took at the SEO PowWow:

Thanks to Bruce Stone for the Skaffe Directory Shirts and thanks to the BOTW Guys for the shirts as well! A very special thank to Aaron Wall as well for donating his time and knowledge to the Ninja Dojo.

I don’t think we’ll do another link ninjas again…this one was fun, and it seemed to go over really well…..but we don’t really have time to do things like this on a regular basis.

The SEO PowWow….I don’t know….again, had a great time….but planning things like this just isn’t in our business model….I don’t know…

Should we do the Link Ninjas again? Should we hold another SEO PowWow? If we did, would you come? Where would you want to have these held at (Some PowWow attendies from the UK were twisting my arm to do a UK thing)…. If I did, (and I don’t think I’d do), I’d insist on doing no planning – free and just winging it.
