Wake up Search Master Steve

January 30, 2008

Funny thing I ran into today while surfing the net –
not a small ad by Microsoft adCenter, with this outstanding piece of info:
“Search Master Steve Says:
target your search marketing campaign by age,
time of the day, location… even gender.” 

Search Master Steve of Microsoft Ad-Center

 

I meant to put this copy of the ad with no words accompaying it,
’cause the irony is clearer then the sun itself,
but I couldn’t hold it…

And I say:
Wow! Even gender? I can’t believe it!
New thing in town, everyone!
Get yourself into your best clothing and let’s get wild!!! 🙂

P.S (= probably stupid)
If you are anything like myself and not so much into MSN, you should know that “Search Master Steve” is just as trendy as MSN is. On the following you can read some of the old compliments he recieved along his way (sorry Steve, nothing personal, it is just the gender thing):

MSN tries to educate me…I refuse (search for the “search master? He can’t even master a comb” part. hilarious!)


First PR Update in 2008?

January 12, 2008

It seems like there was a Page Rank update as my blog’s home page (https://seosos.wordpress.com) has suddenly got no PR…
Sad but true.
Did anyone notice the same changes?
something?
anything?

These are some of the voices I have just heard (read)…

Last Word of SEM Experts’ (blogs) I Admire

January 5, 2008

Dave Naylor (Daven) says “We all know Google doesn’t know how to count” and he’s right.

Debra Mastaler wants Google to use its official communication channel and I think most of us can identify with her.

Todd Malicoat: “I’m proud to work with Aaron Wall and Scott Smith“. Mazal Tov, Todd. We’re proud of you too. 🙂

Jim Boykin talks about his internet marketing ninjas training program and I’m a little bit sad of the fact that everyhing turns to be commercial at the end (if not in the middle of the way). I would surely miss the free SEO tools of We Build Pages.

Rand Fishkin offers SEOmoz’s website stats for 2007 and I must say that SEO-beginners can learn alot of what interesting factors should be looked at in a website stat from scanning SEOmoz stat’s titles plus I wonder if the the list of SEOmoz’s top referring domains is the real one…

Michael Gray mentions that long URLs are problematic for social media and I want to thank him ’cause I didn’t know 225 is the limit number I should keep in mind.

Aaron Wall writes about optimizing automated communication strategies and I get to recall once again why the seo-book is one book I can read again and again and again. Aaron writes so well and with so much honesty you can’t do anything but falling in love with him one more time.
