Twitter is the Freedom Engine?

by | June 16th, 2009 | Posted in Social Media | Comments Off on Twitter is the Freedom Engine?

twitter.comWhile Bing might be promoting itself as the decision engine, Twitter could make a play for being known as the “Freedom Engine”. According to an article previously posted in the Washington Times, the State Department last weekend asked Twitter to delay it scheduled maintenance this week, which would have cut daytime service to Iran on Tuesday, just as protests against the recent elections continue to gain momentum.

Last Monday I made the quick trip up I-5 to Seattle for this year’s SMX Advanced.  Not only did this yearly expo provide our management team with an opportunity to meet and network with some of the search industry’s top minds, but to also attend some very informative sessions on Organic, Paid, Social and the Business side of search marketing.

WebRanking staff to attend Search Marketing Expo Advanced

by | May 29th, 2009 | Posted in Conferences and Seminars, WebRanking News | Comments Off on WebRanking staff to attend Search Marketing Expo Advanced

SMX - Search Marketing ExpoJames, Chris and myself will be in Seattle, Monday June 1st thru Thursday the 4th 2009 to attend the SMX Advanced. We are all really excited about attending the conference and a chance to learn some new skills and ideas that we can apply to our clients’ search marketing campaigns to get them better results, and to meet other people in our industry. The conference is 2 full days of speakers and classes, with a few meet and greet evening social interaction sessions. We bought our tickets a month ago, and looking on their site today, the event is all sold out, glad we got our tickets when we did, as the event is only in Seattle once a year.

SEO Since 1999

by | April 20th, 2009 | Posted in Search Engine Marketing, WebRanking News | Comments Off on SEO Since 1999

Monday, April 20th, 2009: Today I celebrate the completion of my first decade in search.  I have been waiting for this day with some trepidation for the past 6 months or so.  I am not really sure why or even what this anniversary really means.  Does it mean that I am some sort of expert?  Well, anything is possible.  Or does it mean that I have spent the past decade in an industry that my friends and family can hardly even understand?  Hmm, I hope not.  In truth, it means I not only have a job that I like, but a career that I love.
