Brian has been doing SEO since before it was called SEO, back in the days of 1998. Back then, SEO was known as “add-ons to web development,” and the marketing of the term was just beginning. SEJ’s latest Guide to SEO says the earliest beginnings of SEO saw its roots in 1997. Now, SEO has boomed and blossomed into a multi-billion dollar industry.
