About SEO Research Labs
SEO Research Labs' success is based on delivering the best possible keyword research at affordable prices. To achieve this, we've had to develop our own unique processes and tools. By continually working to improve processes, control costs, and gain operating efficiencies, we have managed to improve the quality of our reports while holding to our introductory prices.
Our keyword research consultants work from home, on their own schedules, but we all follow a disciplined process to deliver the best possible results. Since 2005, SEO Research Labs has offered a variety of SEO training programs and consulting services for amateurs and professionals who want to make the most of their search engine strategy.
Dan Thies, President
Dan Thies has been helping his clients (and friends) promote their businesses online since Netscape was a start-up. He is the author and publisher of the top-selling e-book "Search Engine Optimization Fast Start," now in its 4th edition. Dan launched SEO Research Labs in early 2003, following numerous requests from readers for keyword research services.
SEO Research Labs' services were initially available only to readers of "SEO Fast Start," with Dan personally preparing each report. Outsourcing services for search engine marketing consultants and site designers were offered beginning in the summer of 2003, which required an expansion in staffing. With a team of 3 consultants in place, Dan is responsible for managing business relationships and driving the development of new processes and tools.
In December 2003, Dan was invited to speak on the "Search Term Research" panel at the Search Engine Strategies conference in Chicago, and is now a regular speaker on keyword research. Look for him in December 2006, when SES rolls back into the windy city.
Dan is moderator of the keyword research forum at the High Rankings forum and a member of the executive committee of SEOPros, the organization of search engine optimization professionals. His latest book, the Search Engine Marketing Kit, was published by Sitepoint.com in 2005. The Sitepoint SEM Kit is, according to Dan, "the most complete guide to the practice of SEO anywhere." Dan is either too lazy or modest to post reviews by others, but you can just Google it if you would like to read some of them.
