Eric Van Buskirk's website "border crossings" is about shots and shouts from Europe, Asia and the Americas made during a fifteen year period in over 30 countries. Most were done on the cheap: all were independent (no tour guides or companies). Most of the time travel was with others, some he met while exploring countries off the tourist trail.
He started ClickStream Marketing, Inc., an interactive agency in Cebu, Philippines and grew to 15 employees over a three year period, from 2005-2008. He currently does SEO for websites after resurrecting the ClickStream brand in this year.
Eric is a search engine data fanatic. With SEMrush, he worked with clients to discover how they can customize sets of millions of URLs, keywords, and associated metrics to find important trends they analyze in spreadsheets or integrate with their own data. He's a contributor for Search Engine Journal.
