Is MarketingVOX Confused Or Just A Slow Newsweek?
6 June 2008, greg @ 2:02 pm

MarketingVOX is pushing a news story about Google getting it’s wrist slapped by the French court, that from all accounts appears to be over three years old. In the story they cite a CNET piece entitled “Google loses trademark case in France” that dates from February 2005.

Am I missing something here?

Microsoft Withdraws Bid for Yahoo
5 May 2008, greg @ 9:44 am

Microsoft said Saturday that it was abandoning its blockbuster bid to acquire Yahoo! after it raised its offer by $5 billion but Yahoo rejected it as still too low.”

Friends tell me MS will be banging on the door again later in the year. If Yahoo! management doesn’t get their game together, they will not be able to defend themselves against this a second time.

What are your thoughts?

Internet retailer sues Yahoo for $1 million
21 April 2008, greg @ 10:28 am

“Online retailer is suing Yahoo Inc.
for $1 million, alleging that it was overcharged nearly that amount
because it was the victim of click fraud, according to court documents.”

Depending on the outcome, this case could have far-reaching implications. It is my belief click fraud is still rampant and something needs to be done to get it under control.

Agree, disagree??

StomperNet Live: What I Did With My Weekend
16 April 2008, greg @ 10:14 am

I am sitting in the Atlanta airport waiting for my flight home and I thought I would tell you about the great weekend I just had attending StomperNet Live Five. StomperNet has been, and continues to be, the 1000 pound gorilla when it comes to learning SEO and Internet Marketing. If you want to learn REAL SEO skills and Internet Marketing, StomperNet is the place to learn it.

Our company has been involved with StomperNet since well before it was called StomperNet. Back when it was just Brad Fallon and Andy Jenkins, it was called The Apprentice Program. Since joining the “Apprentice” program way back when, we have not spent a single dollar on ANY other SEO program. We haven’t spent money on other programs because we haven’t needed to. Our revenues have grown a minimum of 50% every year since we have been involved. Last year we were up 75+% and for the first quarter of 2008 our run rate is nearly 80% over 2007. Pretty effective, huh? I’d say. And those number$ are from entirely organic search results not PPC. Have you been that successful on your own?????

So, the bottom line is if you want to grow your business join Stompernet when you can. I have heard they may be opening the doors for a short amount of time within the next few months. It isn’t cheap but, the return on investment can be staggering.

So what did I do this weekend? I listened to and learned from the best of the best. These folks aren’t just speakers at the SN Live events, they are StomperNet Faculty. An added bonus? NO PITCHING FROM THE STAGE!

The list is a who’s who of SEO and Internet Marketing:
(in no particular order)

That is all the people I can remember at the moment… A huge amount of new material and programs were announced during the event. Many of these will go live on April 15th. The cost for all these new faculty and programs? Zip, zero, nada. All included in the price.

So, why haven’t you joined Stompernet?

Virgle: The Adventure of Many Lifetimes
1 April 2008, greg @ 11:29 am

“For thousands of years, the human race has spread out across the Earth, scaling mountains and plying the oceans, planting crops and building highways, raising skyscrapers and atmospheric CO2 levels, and observing, with tremendous and unflagging enthusiasm, the Biblical injunction to be fruitful and multiply across our world’s every last nook, cranny and subdivision.”

Man these people are incredibly forward thinking. The cool thing is they always release their best products and ideas on April 1st. I have already signed up everybody in our household! You should too!!

Kindle: Amazon's New Wireless Reading Device
27 March 2008, greg @ 7:45 am

Due to heavy customer demand, Kindle is temporarily sold out. We are working hard to manufacture Kindles as quickly as possible and are prioritizing orders on a first come, first served basis.”

Doubtful this availability issue for’s Kindle product is news to too many folks. What I don’t get is why is this device hot? It is an interesting use of technology but most folks I know still prefer to hold a book in their hands when they read it. Guess maybe that part of my brain is forever anchored to the analog world.

What are your thoughts? Would you seriously consider purchasing this device for $400?

It's been a long time…
23 March 2008, greg @ 6:34 pm

Since I have posted on my blog. Just upgraded to the latest version of WP so I thought I would make a post. Here ’tis. The last year has been absolutely crazy but it has been a very valuable learning experience as well. Business revenue was up about 75% in 2007 and 2008 is tracking at the same rate of increase. Fantastic! Have been doing lots of interesting tech geek type things in the last year. More on that later.

Have a great day!!
