    Hey guys! My name is John, but my friends call me Sean John, because back in high school, I used to wear Sean John clothes. You know, "P. Diddy" or "Puff Daddy" or whatever his name is this week. Him.
    Anyways, The name stuck with me since (some people simple call me "SJ", but any combination will do ;) )

    I'm not new to the internet or SEO for that matter; I've been designing websites since I was 9 years old, back in 1996, with my site "John's Star Wars page". It ranked on first page for Yahoo! (THE search engine at the time) for various keywords. It was pretty impressive for a 9 year old.

    However, my tactics haven't changed much since, and I still slave each day manually going to message boards, blogs, and even emailing people to link to my e-commerce site (my e-commerce site is also my local business, we sell NHL jerseys :)). Honestly, these days, its not enough force to drive traffic to my site. While I'm relatively young, I have an office to pay for, bills, stock, etc. So I'm looking for ways to bring in more potential customers, and other sources of income.

    I also am ADHD inattentive, so I tend to browse and read more than I apply myself, but I'm working on this. :eek:

    Currently I'm enrolled in Howie's "Black Hat is Back 2" program, and while I'm not overly impressed by the program so far, I'm sure the next few videos to come out will solve any questions I had in mind. Plus the keyword "properties" tool is pretty nifty. Needless to say, I have some knowledge in internet marketing, but need a lot of guidance. But that's what we're here for at BHW!

    I'm looking to be here at BlackHatWorld for the long haul; I love helping people, both newbies and gurus, with my personal experience and input. Hey, sometimes I'm wrong, but we're all human! :D

    Don't be a stranger, drop a line sometime either here, threads I'm participating in or even Private Message and say "HI", I'm ball and chained to the internet almost 24/7 (thank you iPhone!).

    Cheers!
