Search Engine Watch Welcomes Great New Blogger


Search Engine Watch would like to welcome a new SEO blogger to our team of search marketing and social media optimization experts.

We think of him as the F. Scott Fitzgerald of bloggers, since he's a great writer from Minnesota, too. Search Engine Watch will guarantee, though, he'll be more prolific than Fitzgerald.

I first met Marty Weintraub, president of AimClear search engine optimization (SEO) Internet marketing firm, at fund raiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, sponsored by the Internet Marketers of New York and Best of the Web before the SMX social media conference in New York.

If you spend any time online in the social search space, you'll recognize Marty by his trademark baseball cap.

Marty's battle with cancer spurred the search community to raise more than $5,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

We're pleased to report Marty just received news from the Mayo Clinic that he's winning his battle.

You can meet Marty at SearchFest 2008 where he'll present: Marketing 2.0 Issues: Online Reputation Management

I can't think of anyone with a better online -- or offline reputation. Welcome, Marty.
