SEOBook has a good summary of Robert Cringley’s keynote from the first day of PubCon.
He’s a big believer in Google and clearly thinks they’ll whoop MSN’s butt.
Just announced by Yahoo…
Beginning today, Yahoo! is offering search advertising in RSS feeds from publishers participating in the Yahoo! Publisher Network beta product. As Yahoo continues to expand the number of publishers within the network, RSS ads will be offered as another opportunity for small- and medium-sized publishers to earn revenue from their Web sites (the new feature is available to all beta participants).
Data at eMarketer reveals that while many CEOs see the value of blogging, few of them actually have a blog.
Of 131 CEOs surveyed, about 7% said they had a blog. Only 8.4% said their company had a blog. (A handful of executives said they didn’t know if their companies had blogs.) Looking ahead, 18% of CEOs said they expected to have a company blog over the next two years.
More than 40% believe blogs are beneficial for quick communication of new ideas and recent news.
Maybe they need blog marketing services?

Looks like the 411/local search companies popping-up for cell phone users, are about to get an influx of new customers.
Local CBS affiliate WRAL reports a Raleigh, N.C. murder suspect had used Google for research.
Robert Petrick searched for the words “neck,” “snap,” “break” and “hold” on an Internet search engine before his wife died, according to prosecutors Wednesday.
More than two years after Janine Sutphen’s body was discovered floating in a Raleigh lake, investigators continue to find new evidence on computers seized from Robert Petrick’s home that prosecutors say support their arguments that Petrick killed his wife.
The Google search was the latest in recently discovered evidence found in the 100 million pages of content removed from computers.
This is sure to spark a wave of CSI techies examining suspect’s recent search results.
Thanks to Sheila!
