    So I was at this Hafli dinner tonight and at my table sat this little old man. He was asking me what I did for a living and I told him that I have websites and do things on the internet. He said, "Well I do too". And I'm like say what? Needless to say I was dumbfounded as he told me about his website and how he sells religious knick knacks and such. He told me about how he does the "adwords" to get more customers. He was inquiring about my SEO services and about how he heard if you get links from other sites you will be ranked higher when people search "the google". He told me how he checks his email every day to see if there are new orders and then he prints his shipping labels and stuff. So he wants me to come over this week and see his setup and see if I can do anything. Little does he know he just scored some free SEO services. I was just tickled pink that he is so "with it" and actually had his own e-commerce site that he runs himself at almost 88 years old.

    I just thought I would share this. This really made my week. :eek:

    Watch him be ranked highly for some major keyword worth tons of money and not even realize it. Make sure to check his page rank!

    actually he ranks on page 1 for several search terms. but i will give him a good boost to get to the top. i warned him that he might get too many orders to handle in a couple months. :)

    +Rep from me for your kindness, a lot of young people think old fogies are useless, but there's so much we can learn from them!

    My prediction,

    Old man ranks #1 for multiple 10k+ exact match terms, with a one-page website and no content, with 2 backlinks

    His journey is truly amazing when you think about it.

    He has seen the evolution of computers and cell phones. From the big old bricks of cell phones, and the computers that weighed 20-30 lbs and had a screen 4 or 5 inches big as a Desktop.

    I would love to meet a person like that.

    I actually got started because of a similar situation. I met a older guy when buying something off Craigslist. He was maybe 65-70. He was a LARGE importer and sold alot of stuff online. We talked a long time and finally I decided I wanted to work for myself.

    I actually never had a 9-5 Job so it was not hard for me to quit and start IM Full Time. If it was not for him I do not think I would be where I am now. Thinking of that, I wish I knew how to get ahold of him! Would be nice to let him know what he created! LOL..
