GreaterBethesdaOnline, Iphone App Developer-webmaster, & actually some Real Estate
Many of you know Greater Bethesda Online, this two year old web space devoted to primarily real estate, almost was hacked and it wasn’t by all those charming people defending wikileaks. The culprit? Me…yep, you heard me correctly. I tried to perform some programming over my head a mistake that “broke” my own site. It was a mistake so confusing, that it took one top webmasters/SEOs in the country to fix the mess.
SEO or Search Engine Optimization is a process of making Google like your website…it’s MANY parts hard work, a few parts patience, and for those extremely talented (“webmastery”), it’s an art that normally rewards rewards the most creative (and normally, tech savvy)…
When Greater Bethessda Hard Knox Calls For ‘Triple Threats”

Some people like to call him an “iPhone App” guru, some like to call him The “Denver SEO“, others call him Denver Knox (“Denver” because of where he lives). I just like to call him friend and mentor. The lessons he’s taught me:
- Don’t think yourself into paralysis (it’s easy to do)
- That behind a lot of the complexities of online marketing, there are also comforting simplicities.
- To take myself less seriously sometimes
- “Keep it simple stupid”…
Greater Bethesda Online Problem Solving Simplicity?
As I continue to replace some content lost here, Knox is helping me finish up some problem solving and just lend a helping hand. So I’m going to try to lend him one is showing him this picture of “Bethesda”. I’m uploading a picture for more some simple bug fixing that existed before I broke my own site.
What Does This Story / Bio Have to do with Greater Bethesda Real Estate
Not much directly — but there’s often morals easily extrapolated to real estate space. So words of wisdom using a real estate analogy: >> Only do it yourself if you know the best contractors in the business to clean up a possible mess. In my case, I literally knocked my house down. Gratitude to Knox and others who helped me re-build it.
