Getting Into Google - New Unavailable_after Tag and More!

July 11, 2007
Last night was our third SEMNE event (Search Engine Marketing New England), and we were humbled to have Dan Crow, director of crawl systems at Google, spilling the beans about how to get your site into Google. He talked for a half hour or so, and then proceeded to answer audience questions for at least another hour. As I sat there listening to him (yes, I actually listened to this one!), I was struck by what an awesome opportunity it was for everyone in that room to be provided with such important information — straight from Google. It was clear that the 100 or so people in the room agreed. In fact, at 7:30 on the dot, everyone spontaneously stopped their networking activities and simply took their seats without being asked to. These folks definitely came to hear Google! Read More >>

I’m certainly looking forward to some spring weather…I wonder if it will ever get here? It certainly seems spring-like with the extra sunlight in the evening. And even the car is pretty warm from the sun in the afternoons. Today I even opened my sunroof for a bit when I had my Wed. carpool duty. But generally, it’s still feeling darn cool around here.
