I’ve mentioned my consulting work a few times now on this blog but so far, the details have been kept relatively quiet. On July 27, I intend to change that. A few months back, I acquired the domain northcutt.com, registered Northcutt Consulting Group, LLC, and began all of the basic organizing necessary in forming a […]
The last two Google updates (especially Farmer/Panda) have pretty well shaken the whole web; and I can echo this with my own large-scale test sites.

The most plain, but arguably, most important website we own finally had its brand image made, only a year late. The design itself is another credit to Gary‘s awesome work, the design […]
Like all of the people that work with me know, the thing I’m really crazy about is SEO. It’s kind of my thing in the company.
