Dave Dugdale of Rentvine

Last week I had the pleasure of eating lunch with an SEO jedi by the name of Dave Dugdale. Dave is the founder of a company called rentVine that is a platform for advertising and finding rental properties all over the country. I discovered Dave's blog while doing some research on online rental marketing a couple of years ago and have been following his every move ever since. He is truely a wealth of information with regards to search engine optimization. The team is excited about implementing some new strategies we learned about from Dave and watching our rankings climb.
