Back in June of 2007, we conducted an in-depth analysis of the search engine reputation of the presidential candidates in contention.

Photos From SES San Jose

Unfortunately, I didn’t arrive in San Jose until after 6pm–so I missed all of day one. However, I did make it to the Internet Marketer’s Charity Party, which was a huge success.

First, the background:

Warning: Hackers Infecting Twitter Users

Some people get on my case because I don’t follow everyone on Twitter, who follows me. Well, for one thing, I’d never keep up with 3000+ Tweeple, but I also live by my mantra of building meaningful relationships with social media–I don’t care about any popularity contest.

YouTube Is Sued Yet Again

If Google has a legal achilles heel right now, it’s got to be YouTube. The search engine knew it was buying a can of worms, when it set aside $200 million in anticipation of potential lawsuits.

Under a newly announced settlement, Carl Icahn and two of his cohorts will be elected to Yahoo’s board of directors.

Companies Finding It Hard To Transition To Google

If you decide to sell your company to Google, keep this in mind: you will be forced to give up the English language and will only be able to speak Klingon.

I kid, I kid…mostly.

Carl Icahn’s History Of Shaking Up Companies

Is it just me, or does Carl Icahn shake-up the Board of Directors at every company he invests in?

News today suggests he’s hell-bent on replacing Yahoo’s board at the August 1st annual meeting.

Viacom Changes Mind On Demand For YouTube Data

It is now safe to return to your normal YouTube viewing habits. Viacom will not be getting its hands on your personal data.

Microsoft & Yahoo Trying To Get Time Warner On Their Side

You’ve heard said "keep your friends close, but your enemies closer," now Yahoo wants to test the boundaries of that maxim to the full.

Google Has To Give Up Personal YouTube Data

Just yesterday, I had a conversation, agreeing that the only thing that could topple Google, would be privacy. The same day, a judge presiding over the Google/Viacom case issued a court order requiring Google to turn over your personal data.

Online Advertising Spending Is On The Rise

As an internet marketer, any report of an increase in online ad spending brings a smile to my face. And a new forecast by ZenithOptimedia is the latest reason for happiness.

Charter Postpones Ad Targeting Plan

It looks like privacy concerns have put Charter Communications ad targeting plans on hold.

As we reported last month, ISPs are sitting on a wealth of personalized data, but lawmakers have expressed concerns over the methods used to tap into that data–especially "deep packet inspection."

Google Launches New Ad Planner

I wonder how many people in the interactive advertising industry are feeling suckered by Google this morning.
