Awards, Conferences, & Interviews

Whew. I forgot how much work went into the inaugural SEMMY Awards last year. Last night, putting together the announcements of 17 categorical winners — that was a mad dash to the end, checking who won, writing the posts, grabbing the screenshots of each ballot to show the vote percentages.

Links To Make a Mom (and Wife) Proud

(Didya catch the sarcasm in that sentence?) Since Mother’s Day arrives in just a couple hours, and I’ll be spending [...]

The SBS Interview: Brian Gil, Yahoo Local

In the days after the SMX West conference last month, I recapped the “Local Search & Blended Results” session here on SBS, pointing out a comment from the Yahoo! speaker about the non-impact of reviews and ratings on the three local business listings that show up in Yahoo!’s Local Shortcut. Problem is, I got the [...]
