    Dino, for the record, I think of John Lennon when I think of you. :)

      I will second that.

      Thats a good association…I’ll go with it..which gives me an idea. For the Last Honest Guy podcasts, (target audience is women of course) maybe I should put up a painting of Brad Pit, that way girls think of Brad Pit when they see me and vice versa…it could only work in my favor, no? lol

    Hi Dino!

    Great interview! It’s difficult to know who to listen to and who not to listen to, but Dan really knows what he’s talking about and it’s obvious. Really learned a lot! Thanks for this!

    • http://diyblogger.net/about Dino Dogan

      Yup…Dan sure knows his stuff and Im there to keep him honest…no BS lol…anyways…I dont know if you had a chance to listen to the first SEO podcast we did, but we covered a lot of ground and it gives you great fundamental grasp of SEO…(link above)

      Give that a listen, you will not be disappointed, I promise :-)

    • http://twitter.com/dancristo dancristo

      It’s all a facade. Dino was feeding me answers. lol.
      In all seriously, thanks so much for the kind words. Dino and I have a lot of fun with these interviews, so it’s greatly appreciated when fine individuals like yourself take the time to give them a listen.

    SEO is a big field, its hard to keep active on all SEO things, so its better to work on basics only

    • http://diyblogger.net/about Dino Dogan

      I agree Vivek. As Dan said in the first podcast, theres a lot of low hanging fruit you want to pick off…beyond that, the ROI starts to diminish.

      • http://twitter.com/dancristo dancristo

        Exactly. The basic SEO principals of building authority and relevancy apply to every site and won’t change. That alone will take care of 90% of SEO problems. The other 10% are abnormalities like crazy content management systems or extremely poor architecture. If you do run into any problems that you’d like some advice on, always feel free to get in touch with me. Dino was kind enough to thrown down my contact info in his awesome post. Thanks for the comment.
