In my previous post, we explored how Slingshot SEO’s Research and Development department came into being, as well as peered inside the personalities and backgrounds of the three members that make up the team.
You are in for a holiday treat over the next couple of weeks as I introduce our Slingshot SEO Research and Development department and its always unflappable head Mr. Evan Fishkin. When most people think of a technology-related company R&D department, the names Apple, Cisco, Qualcomm and others come to mind. They may have more [...]
As a continuation of my post “The Many Hats of an SEO,” I will be writing periodic posts about different positions in our company. These posts will describe why these positions are necessary for SEO success – giving people outside of the SEO industry more insight into how we operate.
In last week’s post, we peeked into one of Slingshot SEO’s leadership development processes — the quarterly feedback session. I also introduced Alston, my new friend, who is now back in his home country of Africa attending two universities to achieve double majors.
