My Decade Of Writing About Search Engines
===============================================

Ten years ago this month, I first starting writing publicly about search engines. To mark the anniversary, I've done a long piece, My Decade Of Writing About Search Engines, that looks back on how I got started with Search Engine Watch and recounts some stories I think are worth noting year-by-year. I hope both those new and old in the search industry will find the recap interesting. My deep thanks also to all the Search Engine Watch readers who've supported me and the site over the years!

===============================================
New Shopping & Patents Correspondents
===============================================

We have two new people to welcome aboard to the Search Engine Watch team, Brian Smith & Bill Slawski. Both are now posting items to our Search Engine Watch Blog.

Brian is posting items relating to the shopping search space in particular and other vertical search areas in general. Brian's done a great job watching over shopping search at his ComparisonEngines.com blog, which he will also still be maintaining. We're glad to have him on board to help keep our own readers better informed on shopping and vertical search.

Bill Slawski's done a wonderful job exploring what various patents might reveal about how search engines operate on forums such as Cre8asite and at his own SEO By The Sea blog. He'll be keeping SEW readers abreast of new patents and what insights they might give, as well as interesting search research. Occasionally, he'll also post news about search acquisitions, as well.

Welcome, Brian & Bill!

===============================================
SEW Live In Seattle, SES London & Other Events
===============================================

In May, our Search Engine Watch Live event happens in Seattle. This is a low-cost, half-day information and networking event. We have two panels and lots of time for search marketers in the area to talk informally. I'll be there, as will SEW managing editor Elisabeth Osmeloski who is organizing the event. Local guest speakers from the greater Seattle-area include Jennifer Slegg, Rand Fishkin, Joseph Morin and Heather Lloyd Martin. More details are available here.

At the end of May, May 31 through June 2, SES London happens. It's our longest-running non-US event and the first to expand to three days. Then in July, SES Latino happens in Miami, our first event targeting the US Hispanic and Latin American market.

August sees our regular SES event return to the US. SES San Jose happens early in the month, and my timeline on when you can expect that agenda is posted here.

In October, we're having our first SES Multimedia Edition show, and basic details for that event -- focused on multimedia content and search -- are now available.

Doing forward planning beyond this? See the Search Engine Strategies site and also keep an eye on the Search Engine Strategies Blog.

Google Real Estate? It's Google Base Again, Google's Vertical Play - New reports of Google Real Estate are simply what we've covered before, Google Base results flowing into regular Google. But it's interesting to see how Google's delivering on the promise of Google Base as the engine that drives a variety of vertical search engines, plus how it's skipping the step of creating standalone sites for each vertical. I think those will still come, but the current moves that underscores what I've been saying to marketers for ages now -- pay attention to vertical search. The longer version of this story for Search Engine Watch members looks at what exactly vertical search is and why we call it that; how vertical search is part of the third generational jump to improve relevancy; why the latest Google Base integration is part of the invisible tabs / vertical creep change marketers must understand; how Google Base will remain the master submission site for future verticals on Google.
