The Evolution of Search

I just returned from a few days in Las Vegas and the Pubcon Conference.

I had the chance to see some great presentations and talk to a number of interesting folks, and the company that I am the Director of Search Marketing at, Go Fish Digital won a US Search Award for Best Use of Search for Travel/Leisure, for a campaign we did for Reston Limo.

I wanted to share my presentation from the conference here as well.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

    These were the days before AOL, Yahoo, and BackRub a.k.a GOOGLE and the age meta search engines.
    I often use the post office main sorting stations as a descriptive of how computers work…
    Of course all that has gotten much faster and grown closer to artificial intelligence.
