Director of R&D and Special Projects

The most valuable skill in Everett Sizemore's career has been the ability to communicate effectively with development teams, as well as fellow marketers. As you probably know, those two groups seem to speak different languages sometimes. At one point he was considering getting a business card with "Translator" in the title.

In 2001, at the age of 24, Everett started his first eCommerce store. It was successful enough to pay his way through college. While younger schoolmates were testing the limits of their livers, Everett was testing product descriptions and SEO tactics.

A graduate of Bond University in Australia with a BA in journalism, Sizemore had hoped to land a job as a reporter, but instead learned the ins and outs of SEO as a copywriter for Associated Content - now the Yahoo! Publisher Network. For the better part of a decade, he’s been using his extensive skill set to constantly grow and develop successful SEO strategies for enterprise-level eCommerce websites, and hyper-competitive niches like coupon codes and shopping comparison sites.

As the former manager of Gaiam's SEO department, Sizemore’s experience working in a corporate environment gives him the know-how needed to understand the requirements and roadblocks faced by managers in large organizations who outsource SEO and related tasks. He is able to solve complicated technical issues that the average search marketer may not understand, and the average developer may not see as a problem.

Everett has been a speaker at Search Marketing Expo (SMX Advanced; SMX East; SMX Milan), The Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability conference (LOHAS), Rocky Mountain Direct Marketing Association (RMDMA), Confluence... and was a guest lecturer for the Internet Marketing class at University of Denver in 2008 and 2009. He has written for Search Engine Journal, Moz.com, SEO ROI, and many other industry publications, and has been interviewed by Full Sail University, Business Consulting Buzz, and several and other marketing industry websites. Everett has been a Moz Associate since 2010.

Everett Sizemore lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of rural southwestern Virginia where he divides his time between fatherhood, online marketing, glass blowing and homesteading. He visits Denver as often as he can.

The Online Marketer’s Noble Fourfold Path

The Noble Fourfold Path of Marketing

The Noble Eightfold Path of Buddhism includes concepts like “Right Speech,” “Right Intention” and “Right Livelihood” to guide Buddhist practitioners toward ethical conduct, as defined within the Buddhist traditions. While I tend to shy away from preaching about ethics, a similar group of concepts can be used to guide marketing practitioners toward effective inbound marketing campaigns. […]

Do You Really Need to Crawl ALL 3,435,198 Pages?

crawl_feat-517x250

Is it necessary to continue crawling the whole enterprise site? TL;DR. Not usually. Tell me if this sounds familiar. You’ve adjusted the settings on your crawler tool to throttle the crawl speed, respect robots.txt and robots meta tag directives, etc. You have saved the crawl and restarted it, rebooted your machine, verified with IT that […]
