An Open Letter to the Editors of Search Engine Journal
NOTE: SEJ has since responded to criticisms with what I think is a very fair and mature reply: You can read it here. I never intended this to be a personal attack, nor do I harbour ill will toward the publication. I merely wanted to point out what others and I had noticed: that quality was suffering. Many of you seemed to echo that sentiment, and I’ve gotten many messages from people who agree that the point needed to be made.
Still, I do not want to build my reputation on the back of jabbing others’. I believe SEJ is serious about trying to improve, and so I’ve chosen to take this post down at this time. I appreciate everyone who has commented and all of the upvotes on Inbound (we went to #2 overall, even above Rand’s interview – which is crazy – but also, not somewhere I think the post needs to be in the long-term as SEJ cleans up their act).
Thanks for reading.
When he’s not busy kick hornets’ nests and not-leaving-well-enough-alone, he’s writing bios in the third-person and shamelessly promoting his Zombie 404 Page, because, well, it’s pretty dang cool and he paid a developer to create the friggin’ thing.
