PPC Search Engine Workshops, to be Sponsored by Yahoo!

Port Townsend, Washington - (Cheap Web Hosting Directory) - January 18, 2007 - The principals behind PPC Summit have been teaching seminars about PPC, sponsored by Yahoo!, for the last four years. As students consistently demanded more advanced information about pay per click, the intensive format was born.

The PPC Summit search engine marketing conferences are scheduled to be offered in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, London, Vancouver, Boston, San Francisco and Dallas.
Designed by former search engine insiders, the event features two days of interactive sessions on pay per click advertising, the PPC Summit is a new concept in training for search engine marketing, geared toward professionals and managers at all levels. Session participants endeavor to learn the ''how to'' of pay per click in detail, and attendance will be limited to allow increased networking. The summits are designed to provide advertisers and agencies with the tools, contacts and resources they really need to effectively manage a pay per click campaign, not with a vague, 'Big Picture' overview. Each day offers four customizable tracks designed to appeal to the needs and skills of anyone involved in search engine marketing (

Q&A Land: New Column From Search Engine Land

One of my resolutions in starting Search Engine Land was to spend more time doing Q&As with people. There's no better way to ensure I do that than to start a column. So I'm happy to announce that Q&A Land becomes the second column offered by Search Engine Land.

Unlike Link Week, which started this week and runs on Mondays, Q&A Land is a "floating" column. It will happen once per week, but the actual day might change.

Wikipedia founder plans search engine to rival Google

Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales is working with Amazon to launch a search engine to rival Google, relying on human judgement rather than algorithms.

Wikiasari is scheduled to launch first quarter of 2007, backed by multimillion-dollar funding from and Silicon Valley financiers, reports the The Times of London. The name is taken from name from wiki, Hawaiian for "quick," and asari, Japanese for "rummaging search".

Wikiasari will use the same user-based technology as Wikipedia, an online encyclopaedia which allows readers to edit entries. The new search engine will work on a similar premise, with Wales claiming Google’s computer-based algorithmic searches are open to manipulation and are no match for human judgement.

Danny Leaving Search Engine Watch

After ten years, I'm leaving Search Engine Watch and almost certainly leaving the Search Engine Strategies conference series as well. My contracts with their owners Incisive Media are expiring, and we've not been able to agree on new ones.

I'll explain more about the situation below. However, let me stress that the purpose of this post isn't to cast blame. It's simply to explain directly from me to those who care about why I'm leaving the site and conference series with which I've been associated with for so long.

MSN Search goes Offline

MSN Search Engine users must’ve been "very pleased" when seeing that their search returned only one message, a warning saying the service was not working:

"The service is currently unavailable. Our team is working to restore service as quickly as possible. Please try your request again later."

According to a Microsoft spokeswoman, the search engine went down around 8:30 a.m. Pacific Time and ended around noon. As for its causes, Microsoft could not provide an answer. The company claimed it was still trying to determine what went wrong.

This outage is rather unusual for a service of such high visibility, giving Microsoft’s technical resources and expertise. Even though the service appeared to be working now, this outage means more consumers are likely to lose their trust in Microsoft, a company doing rotten already from this point of view.

According to comScore Networks Inc, MSN's search engine ranked third in the U.S. in February, with 13.5% of all queries, way behind Google Inc. (42.3%) and Yahoo (27.6%).
