Wholesale Product Websites

I was tossing around in bed tonight and couldn’t sleep at all. I was thinking about what I could do with my Internet business. Surely there has to be something for me. The world of Internet Marketing is so vast and full of opportunities; why can’t I find my niche? And then, I had an epiphany. I don’t even know how it came to me, but all of the sudden,… Read More »Wholesale Product Websites

Leaving PPC Behind for Now

While I was in New York last week for a company tradeshow and client visits, I had the chance to think about a lot of things. Google is a great company, and there are definitely a lot of fans out there, and people who would want to be in the position that I am. And with all the controversy behind internal accounts, and the potential consequences of misusing of the… Read More »Leaving PPC Behind for Now

All Work and No…Work…

Work at Google has been quite hectic lately, and certain things have taken a dramatic turn as of late. But that’s not what this entry is about… So we’ve been working on some optimizations off an on, but not so much just because we don’t have the time. Google really isn’t a 9 to 5 job.

I just received an email from… Read More »And We’re Back In

It’s a Whole New Ball Game

So I’ve started doing some poking around in this Internet Marketing business and all I can say is – WOW! There’s so much good information out there, and so much to learn! Quite frankly, I think it’s overwhelming, especially for a beginner like myself. This is quite different than the work that I come in contact with as an AdWords Optimizer. This is a whole new ball game! I mean… Read More »It’s a Whole New Ball Game

Not Quite the Right Time

There’s a time, place and plan for everything. This one isn’t quite it. No more than several days after our alliance has formed does Google HR decide to adjust our internal account policy. As of late, topics such as employees having their own AdWords and AdSense accounts for profit have been pretty sensitive. Even signing up with competitors could be a potential issue. I guess things are bound to change… Read More »Not Quite the Right Time

Today is the First Day of the Rest of My Life…

Hi, I’m Simon, but my friends call me Si. Very nice to meet you, and welcome to my blog! =) Well, today is 2 years to the day I first started at Google. Is this why I decided to start my blog today? Partly… You see, some of my colleagues and I have been talking about starting our own affiliate marketing business for a long time. As an Optimization Specialist… Read More »Today is the First Day of the Rest of My Life…
