InkWorth: The Sequel
LinkWorth loves Vegas. Maybe too much, in fact.
Some of you old-schoolers might remember the story from a couple years ago when yours truly got stamped with our logo along with a client of ours. Well, fast forward two years and voila! De ja vu!
This time, it was our own Jeffrey Marek that stepped up to the tattoo-plate. Ron planted the seed before we left and by Thursday night it was ON. SearchBash was at Rain at the Palms on Thursday night and by the end of it we were all SearchSmashed to put it mildly! (Insert a special shout-out to Dan Leon with Idea Launch. Thanks for the hook, dude!) Carey Hart has a great tattoo little shop there so we went down with a couple friends for some drunken tattooing. (Shannon & Sven…we had a blast hangin’ out with y’all!)
I don’t remember much, but apparently I was taking a bunch of pictures. Here are a couple shots of Jeff mid-ink and post-ink…
Great times. Oh, and Jeff….that most certainly is a permanent link…er…ink!
What happens on Twitter
TWEET TWEET!!! No, that’s not a bird you hear, those tweets are from the new LinkWorth’s Twitter Profile. While most have probably heard a lot of buzz about the up and coming micro-blogging service Twitter, there are many who still may be in the dark so let us briefly explain what Twitter is. According to Wikipedia, “Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users’ updates (otherwise known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.” Basically Twitter is a whole social network devoted short little messages, I like to think of it as the evolution of the Instant Messenger “away message” from online days of yore (back when AIM was king).
So why has LinkWorth joined Twitter? In the long term Twitter could very well become a useful way of communicating with our users, but right now the whole reason for the LinkWorth Twitter Profile is to provide real time updates on our trip to the 2008 PubCon Search Marketing Conference in Las Vegas Nevada, November 11th – 14th. We’ll be “tweeting” all the latest search news from PubCon, as well as documenting our teams shenanigans out on the town! What happens to us in Vegas, probably will stay in Vegas… but everything that doesn’t will end up on the LinkWorth Twitter Profile. Be sure to check it out November 11th – 14th.
PubCon Around The Corner – Tattoo Anyone?
PubCon is just over a week away from posting this. Always a fun time and great way to meet all the industry people who enjoy a great time. Let’s face it, if you are going to PubCon Vegas, it means you like to let loose and socialize. Plus, the end of the conference includes a Pub crawl!
Things we look forward to this year:
- Spreading the LinkWorth business to new business owners, their employees & agencies that haven’t heard of us yet! (the whole point of going)
- A secret little dinner with some big names, hosted by a cool guy. (all I can say) The conversation here will most definitely be top secret and classified.
- Meeting new faces and seeing familiar faces as well.
- Tattoo Me Night! This will be the night that a couple of us will be getting LinkWorth logo tattoo’s and anyone else who is interested. Always the best night!
- Pub Crawl. This will be our first time to stick around for it. Hope it’s as fun as they say it is. If it isn’t, something tells me we’ll wake things up a bit.
If you’re interested in the “Tattoo Me Night”, shoot me an email. We’ll pay for the tattoo, as long as it’s our logo, of course. It’s fun and a story you’ll have for the rest of your life!

Interesting Sight At Google Dance
Earlier this week we attended the SES San Jose show. The show was awesome, as usual. We met many new faces and noticed many familiar faces.
Unfortunately we made it a quick trip this year and missed the Search Bash, but we did attend the G00G Dance for a little while, which is always worth the trip.
Here are a few interesting thoughts I have looking back:
- Quite possibly the worst food ever served at a conference I’ve attended.
- Being that the show was in “Silicon Valley”, isn’t it odd that the Hilton, where we stayed, did not have wireless internet in the hotel rooms?
- Should we hint to MCutts that we really don’t approve of what he does and maybe suggest that he looks for something else to do? A kind of ‘reciprocal link’.
- Is there really anywhere in the states that has better weather than California?
- There are so many good looking people that are in our industry these days, I’d say the “Nerd” tag is long gone!
- 2 hours delay there and 2 hours delay return with American Airlines. Can someone say “NO MORE!”
- While at the G00G Dance, someone left their “footprint” on the life sized globrite they had on display:
Time To Hit The Road – SES San Jose
Finally…a real trade show. Bring it on! After a fairly rigorous travel schedule on the conference circuit last year, this year has been pretty quiet. And to be quite honest, I’m going stir crazy!
We’ll be out in force for SES San Jose (Aug. 18-21) and hope to see as many of you out there as we can. Stop by our booth and grab some of those annoying-yet-addictive sizzle magnets or a limited-edition LinkWorth t-shirt…we’d love to chat. While you’re there, don’t forget to enter to win a dream date with the one and only Jeffrey Marek!
Search Engine Strategies – SES – San Jose
The SES San Jose show is right around the corner, August 18th through the 21st. We wrote a blog entry a couple of months ago talking about this show, along with a SES coupon for anyone interested in attending.
This is just a little reminder the show is only a month away. If you have yet to make plans and are going to attend, you might want to jump on the plans since hotels fill up.
LinkWorth will have a booth and we would love for any customers to stop by and say hi. The show is always one of the best of the year being right next to the Google campus. Along with the show, the Google Dance is worth the trip alone. With billions of dollars, you can imagine how cool of a party you can throw!
Hope to see you at SES San Jose.
eComXpo Starts Tomorrow – Come Pay Us A Virtual Visit
That’s right, folks, eComXpo (July 9-10) is nigh upon us and I want to extend an invitation to all LinkWorthers to stop by our “booth” and say hello. It’s free…convenient…and we’d love to chat!
We participated in this virtual trade show last fall and although it’s a far cry from a “real” trade show, it was an interesting experience. We’ll be completely staffed up both days so I encourage you to come by. It’s a great opportunity to put a virtual face with a real name!
