Thank to Jason from Career MetaSearch for pointing out that Markcarey.com is #9 on the Alexa Movers and Shakers list. The "Weekly Traffic Rank" of 8,430 means that I am currently in the top 10,000 on the web.
In the month of March, my web sites collectively exceeded one million page views for the first time. Actually, there were 1,301,222 page views, so I am well on my way to two million!
I am not posting this in order to toot my own horn. Rather, I do it to share the results of my strategies for web presence management and search engine optimization (SEO). These strategies, which combine blogging tools with quality content and solid SEO, create a virtuous cycle of traffic growth. I can help you implement similar strategies to help you boost traffic and rankings for your site. For a free assessment of your web site, click here.
In addition to blog design and customization, I can provide advice and strategies for promoting blogs and web sites, to ensure that a large number of people find your site.
My name is Mark Carey. I started Mark Carey Consulting Inc. very recently (December 2003) to provide consulting services for web presence management. Many company web sites are nothing more than online versions of brochures and press releases. The reality is that many people find company web sites boring and not very informative. I want to help companies create a web presence that engages customers and fosters communication. The book "The Cluetrain Manifesto" is one of my inspirations for starting this company.
I grew up just outside Toronto, Canada. I graduated from the Richard Ivey School of Business in London, Ontario. Since then I have worked in the areas of financial analysis, business case analysis, strategic planning, and product management in the telecommunications and software industries.
I have been creating web sites for about four years. Some of my web sites have been (and continue to be) just for fun and others are "for-profit". Recently I have learned a lot about blogging and search engine optimization. The knowledge that I have gained in these areas has been very helpful in developing strategies for web presence management. Lately my web site traffic has been doubling every two months, with over 400,000 page views in November, 2003. In my consulting practice, I would like to share what I have learned to help other develop and grow their own web presences.
Below is a list of my other web sites. Most of them are powered by Movable Type, a powerful content management and blogging software application:
