You’ve heard of Sketch, right? Ever since Adobe canceled the wonderful Fireworks in 2012, I had been searching for a proper replacement.

Laying out the groundwork is essential in preparing tiered link campaigns. We will take two weeks to slowly build up our tier 1 sites. This ensures a natural link velocity growth that won’t appear suspicious to Google.
In week three we begin to build our follow-up tiers. (Tiers 2 and 3.) These tiers can be populated more rapidly than our white hat tier 1 links. After these tiers have launched, we repeat the process with new tier 1 inks and their respective follow-ups until desired placement on the search engine results page is achieved.

On my newest project my client wanted a ReCAPTCHA field tied to his contact form to limit spam. Because his site was coded responsively, the standard ReCAPTCHA wouldn’t be suitable for our needs.

Like the oceans Eddie Vedder so often writes about, Pearl Jam has a long and storied career of ebbs and flows. Breaking onto the scene like a tidal wave in August 1991, they were one of the biggest bands of the nineties and helped define what became known as the “Seattle sound” or grunge.
