Apologies for not blogging for quite a long while now. There’s been so much happening behind the scenes that I’ve not had the energy to then get on and write up blog posts too. However, all is not lost. Due to the fact that I have been very much hands on in the trenches so to speak, I’m still able to offer up some personal observations from my own experience about how things are panning out with regards to rankings in search and various other important matters that concern all of us as internet marketers.
First off though and briefly. You may remember I wrote a post a few weeks back about shark fin soup. I read a long article in a local Malaysian paper just the other day which had me really pissed. No names to name here but fact is that folks are still totally ignorant and stuck up their own assess where animal cruelty is concerned. These particular individuals being interviewed in this article were indeed Chinese – wealthy Chinese from Hong Kong, who may be a different kettle of fish (pardon the pun) than other Chinese living in other countries (my girlfriend is Chinese so I had to take care how I worded that). And their main point was that westerners are too much in love with animals to realize the real truth behind the matter of shark fin soup. One very dumb assed lady went on to say how many fine health attributes shark fin soup offered and how she loved eating shark fin soup because it was a way of showing off her wealth. A restaurant owner in Hong Kong made it clear that although the demand for shark fin soup was dropping in Hong Kong because the younger generation were more aware of the negative side of it, its the westerners to be blamed for their lack of real knowledge behind what goes on when the sharks are being “harvested”. He went on to say that us as humans should be killing all these sharks or they would kill us. OMG! Are these people real?
Okay, before I blow up in a temper tantrum, onto other matters.
I’ve been studying my own rankings in Yahoo and Bing just a little more closely since writing up a post a while back about Yahoo Search using Bing software to perform internet searches from now. Not that there has been too much to study – I don’t appear to have many rankings in Bing or Yahoo.
