I have finally been found! Just this week I received a phone call from a writer (Alex) at the New York Times and was I flattered. Alex interviewed me for an article that will be published in the Sunday Times in a couple of weeks on Google Addicts. Shucks and I thought I made Google Addict up!! He must have found me on Google (of course). Looking back at my blog I started the Google Addict post in April ’06 and five months later I am famous!! I told him not to write anything derogatory. Once the article comes out I will post it on my blog.
Just to continue the whole Google addict sequence, a few days ago out of nowhere I get this magic window telling me that my Google Toolbar has been updated. Isn’t that sweet of them, I swear I did not do anything to get my Google Toolbar updated. I will have to admit the update is pretty special. If you don’t have a Google Toolbar I do recommend getting one. I use mine ALL the time. Here is the link: http://toolbar.google.com/T4/index_xp.html?utm_campaign=en&utm_source=en-ha-na-us-google&utm_medium=ha&utm_term=google%20toolbar
One of the amazing things about the Google Toolbar is how intuitive it is. The toolbar actually knows what I want to search for or type in the query box. I put in one word and then it comes up with all these different strings of words so that I don’t have to waste my time typing them in.
They also allow you to add ALLLLLLL these new buttons to the toolbar such as Google Answers, Google Blog, Google Scholar, Google Stock and Google Finance. It truly is becoming a Google World . . . or did I mean Google Earth.
Lastly, my personal homepage is also Google, the Google-ites have added tabs. These tabs allow you to have pages on your homepage, what will they think of next. Alex also asked me “if I use Google Calendar”. Uh oh I froze! I could not tell a lie, my answer, NO. It doesn’t sink with my Palm (PDA). Don’t you just love it, now they have something new to figure out.
I feel compelled to give my thoughts on Danny Sullivan leaving SES (Search Engine Strategies).
Danny, you don’t know me. I have been attending SES for the past 4 years (I think, I need to count my Google Dance T-shirts). At the last SES conference in San Jose I personally noticed your lack of presence and really missed it. I attended the conference for two days, Tues/Wed. I missed your evening open mike. The conference truly had a different feeling and I think now I know why. I knew that something was up.
Gosh, I think we are all growing older and that SES/SEO is coming of age. The industry is truly changing. Like I said you do not know me, but I look forward to your next venture. You have done great things for SEO and I thank you.
