Google Domination

Bob Woodruff from ABC recently visited the Google plex and interviewed Larry and Sergey. This is an interesting look into Googles plan for World Domination. This is actually very similar to the place I work for except we aren't millionaires and we don't get free snacks. Take a look at what they say about the world and what their moto means to the founders. I am skeptical that they actually believe it but its worth a view.

First Ever Links Post

I am not big on link posts but some interesting reads are here for those looking for reason to use blogs on your website or why comapnies are doing it themselves. Also a couple interesting tidbits.

Russell Savige has a short but interesting piece on why he entered the blogosphere.

Here is another article on the Fortune 500 Business Blogging Wiki from Business Week.

Technorati is trying out a slider, similar to yahoos "shopping/research" slider to help you find authority sites. Does not work great in what I tried it for but it adds a new element to the long tail. The article is here on the Search Engine Journal.

Blizzard Internet, a fairly large SEO/Marketing/Design company that mainly focuses on hospitality, has launched a business blog program for anyone. Eve if your site is hosted elsewhere they can set up[ a blgo attached to your site that close match to your site.

Completely off subject but kind of funny is the Elvis Search Engine. Find anything you ever wanted to know about Elvis right here. Not sure what its good for beyond that but it is kind of funny.

Blogs the Choice of the Next Generation

Okay so its not Pepsi but Coke has decided to send a team of college student bloggers to Torino to cover the Wineter Olympics there. The blog site is attached to coke and is being used for PR purposes. This of course is one of the big boys finally getting it. Blogs are great for increasing your ranking in Google as well as driving traffic to your site. Something I have been saying for a long time, use blogs on your site or lose traffic. Its starting to happen now, don't get caught behind the curve.
