Sorry for the delay in posting, but I was in Las Vegas last week attending an exciting Internet marketing conference called PubCon. Here are a couple of the takeaways I had from the convention:
– Bruce Clay from Bruce Clay, Inc. had some very interesting observations about where search is headed in 2009 and beyond. He believes search engine rankings are dead. What he meant by that is people won’t care as much about where they rank in search engines because each search will be unique to each individual searcher. He gave the example if someone searches the word “java” in Google, you might get results for beverage Websites and I might get results for programming sites. It all depends on your web surfing habits. To see a video of Bruce’s observations, go to:

– Twitter! This was by far the talk of PubCon 2008. Everyone was talking about and using Twitter throughout the convention. For those of you who don’t know what Twitter is, it’s basically a social-networking tool that allows you to post short messages to others and also read messages from those you follow. You can write and review these messages from your computer or on your smart phone. Go check it out and let me know what you think: www.twitter.com
More to come later this week!
All the best,
