What Was Your First Search Epiphany?
Posted 09 March 2006 - 11:39 AM
I vaguely remember discovering Google and quickly switching over after being a Mamma.com user, occasionally dabbling in Dogpile searching. And discovering AltaVista's people search and translator tools, whch I still use today.
What was your first search epiphany?

Sure social tagging is ideal, but I have a funny feeling that people are just to lazy.

I'm not even sure this qualifies since Search wasn't anything close to a big deal back then...
But mine came when I had a completely free little midi jukebox site that was hosted on my personal AOL account at the time (we're talking the 80's here) and was supposedly the in the top 5 of the most popular sites on the entire Internet. For two years running.
Had AOL not been picking up the tab because I was staff, there was no way in Hades I'd have been able to afford the hosting bill. And the hits/bandwidth it used up was considerably less than many of my sites take up today.

We began a website (html 1.0) called HOTCD.com - this was before e-commerce was even a term... we started it to resell returned computer CD's from best byyy (as they could not be sold as new again) - we took their returns inventory and gave them $3 for every CD we resold. The goal was to make our 800 number ring - and it worked fabulously! We also began the first list of end-users who had CD players installed at home or work (at that time, they did not come as standard on the computer) we would remail these names twice a year with new titles and get incredible response rates... we also repackaged to cardboard and sleeve and gained 10's of 1,000's of jewel cases we then resold for 20 cents apiece.
Wow, those were some of the days... this Industry makes me feel old again.

Was Al sitting in the corner brooding or something?
