It seems that January 2009 was a month of renewal, hope, and fear. Wait, what? Yeah, we all know that the economy sucks. Business is down. The only people making money are Amazon and Exxon. That says something about our economy right there.
Never-the-less, New Edge Media is all about the positives and January 2009 is no different. Let’s see what good happened this month to New Edge and the rest of search marketing. Why not the world? Well, we already know all that, and we are in our own little world anyway. Hehe.
Search Marketing January Rockin It
- Yahoo got a New CEO
- Gmail is now accessible offline
- SEOBook launched a cool new SEO Toolbar
- People were nominated for SEMMYs
- We all got followed by Lisa Barone, Matt Cutts, and so many others … sorta
- Awesome new conferences like IM Spring Break and PubCon South
- Lots of us still have jobs and those that don’t are getting help from others in the industry! (Matt Siltala reminded me of this)
New Edge Media Awesome Events
- Trisha Lyn Fawver attended Affiliate Summit West and turned heads with her knowledge and personality. We have seen tons of leads from her efforts there.
- We closed some awesome new clients! Yay for new business!
- Brandy tried to take time off the Interwebz – but the ice storm in North Texas canceled the camping trip. She tried though! Instead she did something even more fun … WORK!
- I went skiing at Whistler and managed to find two locals that did Search Marketing for a living! How crazy is that?!?!
- Did we mention that our blog is starting to kick booty too?
- And … we hear a rumor that our very own Amanda Otto’s jewelry design is going VERY well.
So what did I miss?? What great happened to you this month? Let us know! I’ll update if it’s something I really forgot.
