In the spirit of Thanksgiving I would like to share what I as a Search Engine Optimization Specialist am thankful for. I am thankful for Google, who can be the best of friends and the worst of enemies all at the same time. I am thankful that they provide an interesting and ever changing landscape for the online marketing world, although this may be challenging at times, it is what makes me come to work every day ready for a new challenge.
I am thankful for Bing, that they have merged with Yahoo and created a new challenge (Binghoo?) for me to tackle. I am thankful that they have changed the PPC landscape by moving from one platform to the next and by doing so extended the reach for many an online advertiser.
I am thankful for youtube that they are able to bring B2B videos to the entire world, so that they can be educated by the products they have to offer. I am also thankful that they are owned by Google, thus bringing these videos to the SERP’s and helping the rankings and conversion for many of my clients.
I am thankful for the social networking sites like facebook and linkedin as they are making our world smaller and smaller and easier for businesses to engage their customers online. They have really become a part of our culture and everyday life.
I am also very thankful to the online SEO community that is very open and helpful to those that have questions on how to make their businesses successful in a world that is changing and growing every minute. You not only help your clients, you love to educate anyone who will listen and that type of peer to peer network is priceless.
So with a short and obvious plug for myself and my company, from Ecreativeworks. I give Thanks for all of my clients and colleagues.
