Long time and well known (around here) SEO Firm, MakeMeTop was just acquired by Unica:

[unica.com...]

MakeMeTop platform has recently been acquired by Unica, the recognized leader in marketing software solutions, through an asset purchase of Microchannel Technologies Ltd. The full press release announcing this acquisition can be found here.

By adding Microchannel / MakeMeTop products to the Unica product family, Unica will help marketers and marketing services partners to manage their paid search efforts. And, as part of Unica, MakeMeTop customers can continue to expect the same high level of service to which they have become accustomed.

Customer service and support will be ‘business as usual’ in that you can continue to contact Penny Lloyd, Robert Bruce or Barry Lloyd for your needs.


Congrats Barry.

Thanks everyone and I suppose (and hope) I am permitted one more post under the MMT name before I transform into another ID!

Just one clarification, the MMT trademark, software and analytics business has been acquired, but my company Microchannel Technologies (which owned the MMT brand and trademark) is still here and will be doing SEM consultancy, a bit of affiliate stuff and the odd thing in this space. I can just afford to be way more selective about what I do!

For the past 10 years MMT enabled me to be part of this industry in many forms, SEO, SEM, affiliate marketer and lately SEM software provider. It has also enabled me to have a somewhat more decent standard of living than I probably deserve and allowed me to travel the World meeting like minded individuals.

For that, in no small part, I have to thank the people I have met here both virtually and in person. Some of you have been an inspiration and all have been a pleasure to enagage with in lively discussion.

As MMT rides off in to the rosy future I fully expect it to have (although under new ownership) I will be able to be able to choose what I want to do a lot more and that, of course, means I can get back to going to PubCon. Now that is something to look forward to!

Anyone here ever used MMT's SEM product? If so, any thoughts on how it stacks up against other SEM platforms?

Many years ago (I think about nine years to be precise) I stumbled upon this fantastic resource called WebMaster World. There was this person who no matter how innane and stupid my questions were (not a lot changed over the last nine years) he provided his time, input and advice in a polite and patient manner - under the name of MakeMeTop.

Congratulations and I hope this development brings you all you would want and deserve. You are 'one of the few'.

Congratulations Barry!

I believe I saw you at the Orlando PubCon but I don't remember seeing you since. Looking forward to getting a chance to meet you again at PubCon Dallas or Las Vegas this year.

Congrats, it wouldn't have happened without hard work.

When I hear about an SEO firm being sold it comes across as a marketing ploy because SEO companies are only as good as their brightest minds... and those aren't for sale (you know what I mean).

Well done Barry,

I think we first met in one of the SEO forums that pre-dated even WebmasterWorld, cannot remember the name of it for the life of me.

Alt-search-engines does that sound right?

fantastic achievement.
