Once in a while, a new guy comes along whose really got his/her head on their shoulders. If you don't lurk around the search engine categories, you may have missed the service he's been providing there. Anyway, he's cool. I like vetofunk. (:


Let's get to know vetofunk!!!


1. Tell us about yourself.

2. How did you find your way into Ozzu?

3. In 15 words, or less, tell us what your average work day is like. ( 15 words or less, I'm serious :P )

4. Trading Spaces, the tv show - Lover or hater?

5. Who's your hero?



Please take your time, you've got a whole week to answer.

I wonder if vetofunk reads anywhere else on the boards besides the search engine category. Maybe you should PM him a note, dM *lol

Yep --free toll (well maybe a buc over the Ohio line) from you to Cranberry. I think it's done -- haven't been out that way in about a year.

I think it's fixed now -- if you do it via Enon and the backroads you can get to the turnpike via Rt 60 and do it all for free (I thinK)

//EDIT - probably worth it to pay the buc. The backroads can be a pain.

re: backroads...what is it? Rt 168 from 14? Go to New Galilee and take a short jont down 355 to the turnpike entrance? Get on it there? That's roughly what I remember for the backroads stuff via Boardman.

hhmm. I dont know about that. Ive always gone 51 into chippewa and got on 60. If youre going to boardman you could always just go the turnpike to 680. I moved away from this area for about 20 years, so I dont know the back ways as well. I do know routes 165 and 170.

Wow..I feel loved. Never had a thread about me before. :oops:

I have been in minnesota since Thursday night. Went out there to see some friends I haven't seen in awhile. I guess it was sort of a spring break, but not a hot one :roll:

1. Well I am 24 years old. I graduated from Purdue in 2002 with a bachelors degree in Computer Information Systems. I never took an SEO class, but started doing it on my own with my family's jewelry business (if anyone is getting engaged soon :D ), http://www.moregems.com and http://www.e-tanzanite.com. I am in no way a web site designer :wink: . I haven't touched these sites in a very long time, but they are what I began with. I started learning and loving it more and more and eventually moved from Crown Point, IN and got a job working for PrairieWeb in Warrenville, IL. I had been offered a few other jobs, but this company showed the highest standards and the best principles.

Besides doing SEO, I love weightlifting, basketball, rockclimbing, snowboarding, bungee jumping, and whitewater rafting down in West Virginia.

I also love my girlfriend and my Z. :D

2. I actually found OZZU looking through a company's backlinks. The name caused me some curiosity...and then I was hooked. I think everyone hear expresses great opinions and everyone welcomed me.

3. I optimize clients rankings, update PPC's, and do internet research. I eat and eat, too.

4. I only watch it with my girlfriend, Id rather watch Monster House.

5. My hero is my father. He started a jewelry business with the help of no one else. He went to college for Biology, but he never wanted to work for anyone and that why he went out on his own. He has now been in the jewelry business for almost 30 years and is the most honest and intelligent person I have ever known.

Yeah, I wish it coulda been warmer. Didn't take to long, about 6 hours to get there and I love road trips. I do alot of outdoor thrill activities which my girlfriend hates, so part of the deal when we were up there was that I had to take her to Mall of America, so went there in addition to hangin out with some old friends.

Thanks again for all the compliments!

Which 350 you got?

I got a Daytona Blue 2003 Performance, DVD-Nav, and the rest is the standard stuff.

Love the car with the exception of the tranny problem i had at 3500 miles.

I have a Brickyard Enthusiast. Upgraded the whole sound system and thats about it so far.

Love the car except for the tire feathering problem. Had to replace them (couldnt get Nissan to do it). The problem started at 7000 miles, bought new ones at about 13,000 miles.

No kidding? Whitewater rafting in WV? -- I haven't done that since I was probably 18 -- my last few years of high school we'd go down to Ohiopyle once a year. That's a blast! Always wanted to do the West Virginia ones.

Yes, the Upper Gauley (class III - V) is amazing. One of the top 3 in the country. If you ever decide to do it, get 3 others and take the adventure raft. I usually go through http://www.songerwhitewater.com as they like you to fall out of the raft ;-) I usually do in September so is really cold, last year it was 36 out...OUCH

I will be doing the Fork river this year, very bad to fall out of the raft here because its a more dangerous river, but need something new and more challenging.

I have only been rockclimbing in AZ. I took a vacation out there for about a month in August. Did alot of rockclimbing and bouldering. It was the best time I ever had. I had wanted to do some ice climbing this winter, but the closest place to me was a little north of Lake Superior, about an 8 hour drive....ouch.

I will be def doing some rockclimbing out in Wisconsin this summer, as well as trying skydiving for my first time. :D
