Jerod Morris is an SEO consultant, blog strategist, and professional blogger who joined Orangecast in 2008.
In his first month on the job, Jerod started a blog to serve as a sandbox for SEO and social media strategy. Being a diehard sports fan born in Indiana, it was no surpise that the blog he created was called Midwest Sports Fans.
Since its inception, MidwestSportsFans.Com has seen an average of 5,000 unique daily visitors, broke the 3 million pageview mark in less than two years, and has gained over 40,000 links from sources such as The New York Post, the Chicago Sun Times, and ESPN.
In June of 2009, Jerod published a post called “The Curious Case of Raul Ibanez…” which ended up being the catalyst for a huge debate on bloggers versus the mainstream media. In addition to several radio and podcast appearances, Jerod was a guest on ESPN’s Outside the Lines to discuss his post and the blogger/MSM debate. Jerod also is one of the few bloggers to have hex named after him.
