I’ve been thinking. All this writing is very time consuming. I’m good at it – pretty awesome, actually – and it pays well, but I don’t have time for much of anything else. I tried to think about different ways to lessen my workload while still paying the bills, and it came to me that a lot of SEOs would pay big bucks to know exactly what I did as a quality rater for Google.
My NDA with Google was over 30 pages long, but I think I’ve found some wiggle room. I’m accepting private bids for a one-day session with me to go over the quality rater guidelines, the types of projects I did, and how I find it so funny that everyone is chuckling over the news about longer snippets for long-tail queries, since I’ve been calling them snippets in my head for three years now.
Am I having a crisis of ethics? Nah. Just a spur-of-the-moment, late-to-the-game, hopefully obvious April Fools prank.
