Hello – my name is Ahmed Bilal and from now on, I’m going to be your host at the EatonWeb Blog. You might have read some of my work at Performancing.com (which, if you have a blog, you should be reading every day). If you’re wondering what I’m doing here – basically I bugged Ryan enough with my views on how directories can be run and improved until he finally caved in and let me have a go here.

Some people say that directories are out-dated and useless. In reality that’s too simplistic – the model traditional directories are based on is perhaps flawed and hasn’t evolved with time as it should have. There’s quite a gap there – in making directories more valuable to site owners and readers alike – and I believe that EatonWeb, with it’s history and with the right people working on it can fill that gap.

So stay tuned for my first article that should show up on Monday morning. If you have any questions about EatonWeb, SEO or directories in general, please let me know in the comments section of the blog, and I’ll do my best to answer any and all questions.
