    Hello. My name is Bob, and I am an amateur

    Not a pro like the rest of you. Just someone who wants to look over your shoulder and learn something about Local.

    I have read a lot about G Local in the last month or so and find it overwhelming. I have some (personal) business sites that did OK until Google unleashed the zoo (Panda, Penguin, Hummingbird, Walrus) and so I find myself in a 12 step recovery program to get my sites back on track.

    Hope you don't mind an amateur dropping by.

    Cheers!

    BOB!!! Didn't recognize you but the dry humor was vaguely familiar.

    Thanks all.

    I need help getting to the help section. I already got lost on my way to the concierge with my first-second post.

    Re: Hello. My name is Bob, and I am an amateur

    No your post was fine in that section.

    Your Q was a general discussion Q so is fine there.

    Help is only for help on your own listing. (Or a client's if you were a consultant.)

    Welcome Bob! I didn't know anything about Walrus until you posted it here, so I think you're nowhere close to being an amateur
