I saved the developer's account!
Of course, when the developer found out about me, he tried to talk the client out of using my services. And he has been cold to work with. Still, we were getting through the task. He loaded the copy and made changes I requested ... except loading the title and description tags.
I kept emailing and emailing. Finally, I called and said, "When will the tags be loaded?"
He condescendingly said, "You're good at content, but you don't know anything about what goes on behind the scene." Then he proceeded to explain to me that the tags were automatically generated for the site, and he's in the process of trying to figure out a way so that we can manually change the tags. He might have to ... gasp ... hire a programmer at $150 an hour and who knows how long that might take?
This guy has hundreds of clients in our area!
I was livid. I've had one other client who had automatic tag writing, but he was able to turn it off.
How common is this?
(I did talk to my client and I told him that he might have to move his site elsewhere ... it's a small e-commerce site ... does that take a long time?)
