An SEO by any other name would still have a splitting headache. I stole my job title from Wil Reynolds from SEER Interactive, who calls himself “Founder & SEO” (a play on Founder & CEO). I’ve also always loved Rand Fishkin‘s title as “The Wizard of Moz”. I just never found a fun title of my own, one that felt right, until now.
Nice to meet you, I’m the Curator. Yesterday I got a call from an old client who was migrating their website using a new website designer (don’t get ahead of me now!). They wanted access to their Rackspace hosting so they could point their domain name to their new hosting. If you possess any knowledge of DNS you’d know that a service like GoDaddy or Network Solutions is where you go to point the domain, not to the websites host, and if you’d pointed the domain through Rackspace’s DNS and then closed that hosting account after the move, the DNS record would likely also be deleted.
This was not my circus, and they were not my monkeys, but they called me and so I had to help. I’d set things up correctly the first time (including non-indexed vanity URLs that are now being indexed and dorking their SEO) and I consider it a point of professional pride that it not get screwed up.
