    Patrice from France

    Hello,

    My name is Patrice, i'm a SEO Consultant from France, i've been doing SEO since 2003, and professionnally for other businesses since 2005. I got hit really hard by penguin 1 and thought i would never recover from it (yes yes i spammed too much, i plead guilty), but i have now joined the white side, which makes my nights quieter, i can sleep relaxed knowing i've done nothing bad , that was probably the best decision i've made in terms of marketing, plus it is really an ice breaker when i meet new customers because... it's funny !

    I managed to hit very good positions for the equivalent of "seo agency" in French, by creating a crazy buzz, i've dared to name my site "penalized site" ("site pénalisé" -> sitepenalise.fr) to start with, lots of people from the industry talked about it which really boosted my rankings very fast.

    I'm currently running an absolutely crazy test, trying to rank a .fr domain on some specific american cities (Atlanta and Austin), and so far i've been amazed by the results, i didn't think the pages would show up at all, but they are starting to show the tip of their noses... But i'm having a hard time finding partners in these designated areas, so maybe i could meet some in this forum.

    thank you!
    patrice

    Re: Patrice from France

    Welcome Patrice. Your comment about sleeping better at night now made me laugh.

    I've been doing white hit affirmations "my websites, content, outreach are great and my clients like them", "I do not manipulate links and doggonnit Google likes me" in the mirror for almost 2 years now. ; )

    I'm you're huckleberry in Austin. What are you trying to do with the .fr domain?
