WOW! Digg.com is going crazy!!! For those “unbelievers,” here it is, the actual scanned letter. I am sure new comments will appear that I wrote it, but I am not sure how I can prove I did not. I guess you are going to have to take my word for it Al
UPDATE 2 (from Andy): Google has emailed me to confirm the letter was from them. The sender is Adam Lasnik, one of Matt Cutt’s search evangalists. Google certainly knows how to keep good relations with search marketers, and it just proves that Google thrives on word of mouth.
UPDATE 3: We told you! Google’s Adam Lasnik confirms he sent Al the stuff he needed to ease his headache.
Today’s article is below.
Several days ago, I wrote an article titled, “Dear Google, You’re Giving Me a Headache.” To my surprise, they sent me the pain relief I requested.
After a meeting at Fortune Interactive, where I was actually discussing Google reporting, I went to my desk and found an envelope from Google. I opened the envelope and a small pack of acetaminophen fell out. The hand written letter said:
I hope this helps you keep up with the many Adwords changes.
PS – You are reading the Inside Adwords Blog, right?
Google continues to amaze me. Even though they are a huge company, they obviously found my article on Marketing Pilgrim, got some acetaminophen, wrote a letter, and mailed it to me. This may not have taken much of their time, but I am sure it is the small things, like this, that make their employees love working there.
I took the acetaminophen, read their “Inside Adwords” Blog, and I feel a lot better. As a matter of fact I feel so good I am preparing my next article, “Dear Google, I Need a Vacation.”
