Facebook “Like” Hijacking and Buying – Documentary

facebook-photo

Some weeks ago, we took part in a documentary called “How hackers are hijacking your Facebook ‘likes’”. The program was originally broadcast on Channel 4 (UK) on the 2nd August 2013 and covered the story of Facebook accounts being compromised illegally to go on to be used to promote products and services the owner would otherwise be unlikely to “Like”. I must say, it was very exciting to be interviewed as part of the documentary and the Channel 4 team were very interested in all aspects of digital marketing, not just the…

What it’s like to work at SEOgadget in San Francisco, and why you should join us.

You know when you get that ear-to-ear grin, a little bounce in your seat and an uncontrollable maniacal giggle about really great marketing ideas, new ways to maneuver code or amazingly cool clients that are interested in you? That’s what the past 6 months has been like at SEOgadget in San Francisco since we first opened up shop downtown. Like any typical startup, it’s been a bit of a roller coaster ride at times, learning how to streamline our work around client load, project managing processes, and how to work most efficiently with…

Expanding the SEOgadget Family to the US: San Francisco

san-fran

This is big. When the first aggressive roller blading film came out I was a 20-year old selling summer sports gear at a ski shop in Pennsylvania. Watching Chris Edwards jump and flip and spin around on a set of inlines, I knew this was like nothing else out there, this was something that was going to be big, and I needed to be a part of it. I not only learned to skate better than the boys in my hood, I went off to do stunt shows as part of a Rollerblade-sponsored…

At the heart of every great team is a great coordinator, a leader and someone to deliver and keep the promises the company’s brand message makes to its clients. SEOgadget is growing rapidly. A lot of reinvestment into our platform, IT and products has acted as an incubator, allowing us to grow quickly, but in a stable, measured way.  In the last 6 months alone I’ve rejected 4 offers to acquire, invest or merge with other similar companies. That’s not our way and we have bold plans to continue growth for the…

SEOgadget Gets a HTML5 Upgrade

The past few weeks have been pretty awesome. Regular visitors to the site may have noticed a reduced rate of posting on the site, largely owing to summer holidays, the construction of a new anchor text tool, recruiting our first staff and a HTML5 project. I’ve written about HTML5 and SEO before, but it’s nice to have your own examples, so I’m delighted to show off the first version of SEOgadget in HTML5 – take a look at the source code! I think (as a learning / development piece) there’s…
