Google Update article in Financial Times
discussing impact of updates on small businesses

 2:36 pm on Sep 17, 2005 (gmt 0)

There's a must-read article in today's Financial Times on small business owners' reliance on Google and the huge impact of updates like Florida. Unfortunately the article is for subscribers only but you can read the first few paragraphs here [news.ft.com].

GoogleGuy gets a BIG mention in the article even!

It is a good article from a book being published next week. Regretfully I dont have a personal copy of the article to give details of the book.

In the article the case history hammered by Florida recovers after 4 months of penalisation which is not what has happened to me under Bourbon (yet, but I hope). Somebody else should give the book reference. The author knows his stuff. A very interesting piece of work.

I just phoned my nephew. The book is just published in the UK and the US. The author is John Battelle and the long title is 'The Search: How Google and its rivals rewrote the rules of business and transformed our culture'.

Any book that knows about Webmasterworld and Googleguy should be worth a read. I checked on the Amazons that it is not too expensive.

I think we all understand this stuff and take it for granted but the man on the street is conceptually light years away. How many of you have seen that glazed look in (highly intelligent) peoples eyes when you try to explain what it is that you do.

Articles like this help to bridge the understanding gap but its still a huge gap ( thank goodness! )

I never buy books about internet, as they get out-dated very quickly.

But "The Search" is amazing for the coverage from the first days of the search business. It also gives us a long-term perspective for SEOs regarding digital TV and advertising.

Another tipp: "AMBIENT FINDABILITY", by the IA Guru Peter Morville..

This was a little discussion of this book [webmasterworld.com...] a few days ago.
