Nic n Cher Re-United and On Tour…again

What is a road trip without a blog re-cap?

So, Nic n Cher have been re-united – with a BANG! My flights from Winnipeg were pretty uneventful, unless you count how I almost missed my flight out of Montreal AGAIN! How hard is it?! Get off one plane and get on another… Not get off plane, lolly gag around airport, lose track of time, then beg airline to put baggage back on and let you back on minutes before take off and ages after check in.

Anyway, long story shorter, I made it home and to Nic’s for a bit of shut eye before our road trip to Manchester to meet up with fellow SEO’s to discuss, among other things, linking strategies, the benefits of marketing on social networking sites, and why we don’t use the Yellow Pages anymore. There may have even been a conversation involving me looking like an ass because I couldn’t remember the domain I had purchased years before. For the record, Andy, I did not spend the rest of the evening telling ‘lies’. Had you stayed however… ;)

It was interesting to hear other points of view on hot topics in the industry and even some on old topics that are still pertinent – guess we’ll always be researching keywords, like it or not! The SEOMOZ Quiz fueled a few fires as well.

As always, it was re-assuring to hear that others share your points of view and experiences. Tom, you might want to watch this space for our Panarama Drama rants…

So much for long story short eh? Finishing off with the always popular Top Ten List:

1. Happy Hour in the Britannia Hotel Bar, pre-Ape and Apple. – 4 Buds
for £5 People
2. What’s a road trip without a gas scare?
3. What’s a road trip without losing the map…twice!
4. Participants from the two largest countries in the world, Canada
and Russia. Can anyone tell me which one is bigger?
5. Meeting a sober SEO, that is still fun!
6. Stumbling drunk Wedding goers that made me look sober and still fun.
7. Meeting an array of SEO’s from the UK, on the down side though, we
didn’t get to meet them all…
8. Long shorts even though we finally got twin beds!
9. My favorite part was when we were only served drinks twice at
dinner and when all other tables gradually either ate and ran or just
plain ran!
10. What’s a road trip without getting the finger from a pedestrian
and his dog that the car in front of you splashed!
11. Bonus –

Special Thanks to Rob who helped me order a non-spicy, spicy dish on Saturday night. Maybe you really are EVIL

Or maybe I should be thanking Tom for stirring the pot. Note to The SEO Chicks – views expressed on blogs that are not our own, are not necessarily….our own!

Thanks DaveN and 4eyes for organising a great event! See you in Vegas party people!

    Don’t go laying the blame solely on me guys! Now it looks like I’m just trying to stir up trouble!

    Was great to meet up with you guys though, hopefully see you at the next one!

    (PS – the links to my blog don’t work)

    Yeah, yeah, trouble maker…

    Great meeting you too.

    Fixed your links there.

    It’s usually a conspiracy of men who are hoping tempers will flare and clothes will come off. We’re honored, honestly…and from my point of view, I am always happy to find a great new blog to read so well done Tom! Nic ‘n’ Cher, yours is a very enjoyable blog!

  4. Lisa Ditlefsen September 21, 2007 at 5:36 pm

    yeah damn those boys =)

    Nic and Cher are you going to ad:tech in London this week? If so you should come to the SEO after party on Thursday. I’ve opened a facebook group for people wanting to join for a drink. The group is called “ad:tech London SEO meet-up” (ha ha I’m so original..)

    Would be great to meet you guys!


  5. Nic 'n' Cher September 25, 2007 at 9:05 am

    Thanks for the invite Lisa! Unfortunately Nic and I won’t be attending this time around. But you’re right it would be awesome to meet up! Will find you on facebook.
