Do you love Search Engine Journal? One of our lovely and loyal readers, a staff member of Dr. Michael Dorausch (who we sent to SMX Advanced) and Planet Chiropractic, sent us this appreciative photo this morning, via Twitter and Flickr :
Wowza! After picking my jaw up off the floor I was thinking that I <3 SearchEngineJournal.com too!
Search Engine Journal has been a 5 year project by myself and groups of loyal writers, contributors and search enthusiasts. I started this blog out of a labor of love 5 years ago, after taking a 2 year hiatus from SEO and search marketing (I started in the industry in 1999, buying search targeted banner ads on DogPile, Go2net, Altavista and Yahoo before AdWords or paid search existed).
Since, a personal project to build my writing skills and glue together discussions and news from various search forums, Sitepoint, Webmaster World, High Rankings and email discussion lists has morphed into a full time job, a strong brand and a building block of a search consulting, optimization and media buying firm.
Looking back, it’s difficult to believe that what started as a Blogger hosted blog in the summer of 2003 has become what it is today. And I’d like to thank our readers, subscribers and loyal friends in the search marketing and blogging industry for giving me the drive and motivation to keep this project going.
I LOVE SEARCH ENGINE JOURNAL!!!
