#FollowFriday, My #FF Tricked Out Tweet Exchange of the Week, Thanks @sarita & @aeklund, Please Retweet :)

When it comes to the quaint custom of #FollowFriday, I often wish that tweeps’ recommendations came with explanations, speaking to why I should follow their friends.  In that spirit, this post offers my #FollowFriday recommendations for today, Sara Holoubek and Andrew Ecklund, with explanations of why I enjoy their tweets.

Search Insider Summit, A Sweet Journey Home

Early this morning, as we made our way down the The St. Regis Deer Valley Hotel’s scenic funicular to begin the journey home, I was moved  by  Park City Utah’s stunning mountain terrain by dawn’s snowy light.  The romantic mood was fitting, especially given my gratitude for the experience of speaking yesterday at  MediaPost’s prestigious […]


The Lost Marty Weintraub Rockstar Videos

Last October during a mundane office cleaning, the aimClear team happened upon an epically rad relic of the 80’s… a black & white  36×48 inch relic, to be more precise. Publication of  The Lost Marty Weintraub Rockstar Pictures gave new meaning to the tongue and cheek “PPC rockstar” and “Social Media rockstar” verbiage that had been lobbed […]

Today’s Affirmations For This Search Marketer

The wind whistles howling, this blustery Canal Park morning, 7:20 AM.  The water churns brown, surface licking little whitecaps, tinted iron ore agitated by waves. There’s going to be snow south of us along the Shores of Lake Superior today, hazardous travel they say.  It’s about 43 degrees Fahrenheit outside but I’m good. Each year […]

The Lost Marty Weintraub Rockstar Pictures

It’s been interesting to note search journalists lobbing tongue and cheek verbiage like “PPC rockstar,” “Social Media rockstar” and other mutually indulgent hyperbole at Marty. All seriousness aside, we were cleaning out the office today and found a poster, circa 1985, that left the weekend aimClear crew howling. In a momentary haze, Marty gave me […]

photo credit: Rebecca Miller Gazing out this Airbus A319’s window, dreamlike cirrus clouds expand towards the far horizon. I travel tens of thousands of miles each year, but some trips are special.  Others, like this week in New York for SMX, are pilgrimages.
