My current objective is simply to become the best at content creation, SEO, and Socal Marketing that I can possibly be. I am amazed at how much there is to learn. While the general concepts seem simple the reality is that the more you know the more you realize you have to learn.

I have experience in setting up internet storefronts, ecommerce operations, niche sites and search engine optimazation. If you need help with a project relating to any of these things contact me and I will be happy to help.

I am currently involved in content creation and marketing for passive income models.


Professional Experience

Rapid Chevrolet Cadillac – Rapid City, SD – New Media/Internet Marketing
Working with new media like Youtube, Facebook, ect and combining it with old fashoned search engine optimazation to drive sales to a car dealership. – Management / SEO Specialist- Sioux Falls, SD
June 2006 – Presently

Working with I started with an empty web server and created a rental advertisement site. The site now has around 3,000 unique visitors and 20,000 hits from the Sioux Falls area per month and generates around 300 leads monthly. I achieved this by gaining top search index positions and link building. I did keyword research using Google AdWords and other apps. I then designed the site to be SEO optimized for the key phrases that I was looking to get traffic from. I did a lot of HTML and PHP coding on the site as well as all of the photography and graphic design. – Design / SEO – Clearwater, FL

March 2004 – May 2005 
I started the site Bobs Puppets in 2004 and worked with it until 2006. I used the framework of OS commerce to begin and then modified the PHP and HTML to make it form to my will. Through the use of SEO this site became the highest ranked puppet store on Google, MSN, and Yahoo for several keywords and I had some luck converting traffic. After moving back to Sioux Falls and had some issues with my supplier in Florida so the site is currently no more. But what I learned from this site has been invaluable to me in the creation and marketing of my other sites.

Education and Certifications

Associate of Science Degree, Systems Administration
Southeast Technical Institute

At STI I learned about Windows, IP addressing, Active Directory, and Linux. It was a great starting point for me but, as with any IT professional my education is always continuing.

Continuing Education
Home Education
Currently I read textbooks, listen to books while doing anything else, or watch  videos about networking, web coding, SEO, marketing, business, history and just about anything else that catches my interest. I just like to learn about anything I can whenever I have a chance and feel that education should be a lifelong process. I just don’t want to pay for it the whole time when I can teach myself just as well.

    I came across your site somewhat randomly. I searched for Corneilius Jacobsen at a whim. I found that your Grandmother Sandra and my father Gerald Jacobsen were first cousins.

    You have a nice geneology site. My daughter has been interested in the Danish side of our family. I see that you live in Rapid City. I remember going there as a child and visiting my great uncle Verdon Jacobsen. I called him uncle “bird”. I think I misunderstood the pronunciation.

    Anyway. Nice to see your site. Contact me if you have any family questions.

    I have a correction for you on Everett Erastus McClannahan. His birthdate is 1-23-1876 and he passed away in January 1963. He is my great grandfather and I was researching his name and your family tree came up with him in it. Just thought I’d give you a heads up. =)
