There are countless reasons why someone from the search engine marketing industry operates a blog. It can be to share news, promote one’s services, create community, converse with clients and the public or raise awareness of issues. I seek out positive thinking people and those who, in the face of negativity or peer pressure, continue to do their thing with class and integrity. Their reasons for doing whatever they do are often deeply personal and self fulfilling to them. ForRead more…

Some time last year I realized my association with the search engine optimization and marketing industry might change because the atmosphere was getting partisan. Bad feelings between leaders were festering and it didn’t take much of a nudge to start a rumble. The situation isn’t improving and I wonder why.

A new kind of awards have been introduced into the search marketing industry. They’re called the SEMMYS.

Wishing my friends, subscribers and loyal readers a peaceful, laughter-filled holiday season. I may have some time next week to drop in here, but if not, stay tuned. I’ll show up, sooner or later… In the meantime, there are lots of end of year blog awards events going on. My blog never fits into a category, so I sleep during the all ruckus. Or hide in my Christmas stocking. Much sexier.
