Three days into the Search Engine Strategies conference and I finally had a chance to grab a copy of the latest issue of the Search Marketing Standard magazine distributed free for attendees. The theme is “International Search Markets” and there’s also an interview with Danny Sullivan on Personalized Search. I’ll have to wait until the plane ride home to read it front to back, but it looks to be loaded, as usual. Topics include universal search, Ask.com, local search andRead more…

Five years ago, on August 22, 2002, a date that only Bill remembers because I keep forgetting…a bunch of us who met online launched Cre8asiteforums. It was the next stage of my old Cre8pc Website Promotion Club in Yahoo!, which I’d started in 1998 while I was still an SEO.

There were many blog posts that erupted during that time, including Jeffrey Zeldman’s, Women in web design: just the stats. Interest hasn’t died down.

It’s Friday and since traditionally it’s a boring news day, I saved my big news for today. Guess who is going to Search Engine Strategies, San Jose?. Yes! That annoying usability woman is going to report on sessions again for Search Engine Roundtable, just to spy on everybody in search marketing and fling little usability arrows at them. This will be my third time volunteering to report for Barry Schwartz. We used to use Google Docs to communicate our assignmentsRead more…

There’s a handy little application in the Sphinn calendar that allows you to get the word out that you’re attending a conference. It reminds me of a bulletin board, except all you can do is signal you’re attending. Even cooler would be a way to add notes such as “Wanna share a room?” or reminders for things like meetings or special luncheons. To play with it, simply click the Calendar tab in the top navigation. It will respond by turningRead more…
