Rand and Rebecca have come up with a comical way to share their photos from SES Chicago – creating literally a comic.
It’s a hilarious read, with a cast of familiar characters. I get to make a cameo, playing the part of the godfather…
Remember back in February of 2005, a big fuss was made over Google becoming a domain name registrar. There was lots of speculation that Google would start selling domain names, until they declared they just wanted a better insight on domain names and they had no plans to sell domain names “at the moment”.
Well, a Google “moment” is approximately 18 months, as we learn today that the company will start selling domain names for ten bucks through their Google Apps for Your Domain service.
Now you’ve got one-stop shopping for all the services currently on the Google Apps for Your Domain platform — just find a domain, buy it, and get started. We’ll do all the behind-the-scenes configuration work for you. For now this is available for .com, .net,.org, .biz, and .info domains, but we’re working on bringing it elsewhere soon. We’re also constantly working to introduce more cool new features to this service, so be sure to check back for updates.
OK, so when I first heard about “blog tag”, it sounded like one of those chain-emails, you know the ones – “Pass this on to someone else and you’ll receive good luck.”
After being tagged by blogging-buddy Avinash, I figured it might be fun to share the requisite five things you don’t know about me. So here goes…
Patent searching has always been a pain, but Google’s hoping to make it a little easier with their Google Patent Search.
According to ZDNet, the service…
…is designed to sift through the approximately 7 million U.S. patents by a variety of parameters including filing date, issue date, patent number and inventor.
It’s not exactly at full speed yet, as Google’s still working on some functionality.
…software engineers are still working on functions that allow patent searchers to easily save and print the patent information that they look up…In addition, Google’s site does not currently include patent applications, international patents, or U.S. patents issued since mid-2006.
Who knew that lipstick was patented?
SEO guru Lee Odden must be getting tired of hearing the same old objections to implementing an SEO campaign, as he has posted five myths of SEO.
Here’s the list:

Just last week, I added a disclosures page on Marketing Pilgrim, so there would always be a place where you could view my relationships with any company discussed (in case I forgot). With pay per review becoming a hot option for bloggers, it seems that if you want to blog with integrity, you should disclose who you’re in bed with.
So, what do you do on your blog? Do you have a disclosure policy? Do you keep partnership details a secret? What should be included in a good disclosure policy?
Launching in February, this new search functionality will make it simple for Virgin Mobile customers to quickly discover the broadest amount of content they’re looking for, both within Virgin Mobiles own suite of content (i.e., on-portal), as well as out on the mobile Web (off-portal).
The deal not only enhances the search experience for Virgin Mobile’s cell phone users, but also opens up new advertising options with relevant sponsored links being delivered alongside organic search results.
Hat-tip to Ben Wills.
