Women in Search: Techie or Tacky?
At Chicago SES, I had the pleasure of attending the first women in search luncheon hosted by Ylayn Meredith Ousley, SEOFan Girl, at a beautiful white table cloth restaurant.

Personalize, Don’t Pander, With Unique Content

Looking Back at SES NYC 2007

Not a walk in the park. Day 3 of the NYC SES conference is the day that a Women in SEO luncheon gathering took place a few blocks from the hotel. It was invite only, which meant I got to go because I’m a woman. Nothing else special. Like an engagement over TV or anything.

"While 78% of males watch video online, only 66% of females do," says Debra Aho Williamson, eMarketer senior analyst and the author of the new Women Online: Taking a New Look report. "They are less likely than males to visit most video destination sites – even the biggie, YouTube."

Google Gives Romantic Multitaskers A Discount

Over half of US adults buy gifts for more than one Valentine, according to Google and Harris Interactive. And to honor that two-timing tradition, Google is giving a discount for using Google Checkout.

Marketing to Women: Don’t Waste Our Time

As a woman, there are many ways to keep me from doing business with you. One is to send me email spam; like most people, I don’t like that. Another way is to send teenagers to knock on my door to sell your product; if I don’t recognize the person knocking, I won’t answer.
