“NEIC” stands for “Núcleo de Estudos do Empresariado, Instituições e Capitalismo” and it is a social science and economics pos-graduate school that depends of the Candido Mendes University at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Although fair simple, I am very proud of this project. The challenge was to setup a completely new website with some interaction but with no PHP or MySQL platform available! Besides, scholars are not very fond of too many icons, fancy templates or colors: graphical interface to minimum possible, just plain text. Still, the website is appealing and interesting: some Ajax was used for interaction and movement, tableless for search engine SEO performance and a conservative Web 2.0 design. Still much to do.

Sentirypensar.com.ar is the website for one of the most important Health oriented cable TV programs in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The whole site runs on a PHPNuke platform which was created in 2003. Making it look more Web 2.0 mantaining that platform was a big challenge, but I am somehow satisfied. María José, a brilliant designer from Buenos Aires, designed the theme for me and I helped with final touches and adaptations.
Nevertheless, the most important job done was an exhaustive Regional SEO work which turned out to be a complete success. After a couple months of hard work sentirypensar.com.ar is ranking within the top 5 keywords in most Latin American Search Engines and traffic increasead in a 40%.

“Hey” hired me through Elance. He lives in the US and had this social networking site in Portuguese, musicas.net, for MPB (Brazilian Popular Music) fans. He created his network with this amazing tool, Ning. (Don’t tell him this, but) I think he was totally clueless in regard to Brazilian Popular Music or Portuguese.
My first task was to customize some Apps within the Ning’s Developer Network and give some basic Regional SEO guidelines. The heavy work was generating specific content in Portuguese and driving new users to musicas.net.
It was nice to work with “Hey” and his site is growing on a daily basis getting new Brazilian signups every day!
