Danny Sullivan Puts Alan Meckler in His Place



Over the years, we’ve seen JupiterMedia try to closely integrate JupiterResearch with Search Engine Strategies.

Now that both companies have been sold, Danny Sullivan speaks-up and offers his candid thoughts. Turns out, the whole thing was a charade…

If SES and SEW were feeding off of JupiterResearch, I certainly never felt it. I like the people at JupiterResearch, both those that are still left and those recently departed. But we had no real synergy between the two. We did our own things and coordinated nothing. JupiterResearch would have banners at our shows, and in the last year, I’d give them a track on the first day, but I never got the impression we were somehow thriving because of that track.

Ouch!
