Today marks the one-year anniversary of The Search Agents, The Search Agency’s corporate blog! It’s been an exciting year in the world of online marketing and it has been a pleasure to report, analyze and joke about the developments in SEM, SEO, social media, and beyond.
Marketers have come to rely on the “blogosphere” as a way to express industry expertise, gain clout among competitors and report on corporate developments. In reality, having a corporate blog has become a must for businesses connected to the Internet.
While we can’t claim that we don’t share in these interests, our main goal in creating The Search Agents was slightly less corporate. If you hang around the water cooler enough in any of our offices, you’ll quickly recognize that our team of Search Agents is engaged. We have interests ranging from long distance running, to marathon cooking, skydiving, rock collecting and more. Obviously, the one interest we all share is online marketing and, as dorky as it may sound, it’s a captivating topic.
Our goal with The Search Agents has been to provide a forum for our Search Agents to comment on interesting industry developments and author articles that offer a unique perspective on the ever-changing world of online marketing.
Here are a couple of stats from our first year:
Total Number of Posts: 235
Total Number of Comments: 608
Total Number of Bloggers: 63 People + 1 inanimate object
