TEDxOrangeCoast - Danny Sullivan - The Search Revolution

Search is the next frontier. Search engines like Google and Bing have revolutionized how we get our information, a change that happened so fast that we hardly recognize how hundreds of years of habits were changed. And the revolution is continuing. Search engines broke down barriers to bringing information to people by first digitizing the web, then video, books and even our real world surroundings. Next up is digitizing people, which will help usher in yet another search revolution, as we're able to "google each other" for answers in the way we turn to Google, Bing and other search engines for solutions now Danny is currently editor-in-chief of Search Engine Land which covers all aspects of search marketing and search engine news. Danny Sullivan has been helping webmasters, marketers and web users understand how search engines work for 15 years. He has been quoted in The Wall St. Journal, USA Today, The Los Angeles Times, Forbes, The New Yorker and Newsweek and ABC's Nightline. About TEDx.

SMX Evening Forum: Walk A Mile In Google's Shoes; Dealing With Tough Calls In Organic Search

Everyone, it seems, has an opinion of what Google should do. "Google should remove links to pirated content!," cries Hollywood. "Censorship!", cry internet activists. "Google should ban spammy web sites!," cry searchers. "Google's unfair to my site," respond those hit by penalties. "Google should remove certain negative results for a politician, a company, a person," some might think, only to have others view any meddling as some type of overt bias. For every action Google might take, there might be an equally negative reaction or repercussion. That's why the company thinks carefully about any search policy it puts into place. In this session, Google search policy specialist Patrick Thomas looks at some of the decisions Google has to make and the careful balancing act it has to maintain. - Moderator: Danny Sullivan, Founding Editor, +Marketing Land and +Search Engine Land - Matt Cutts, Distinguished Engineer, Google - Patrick Thomas, Policy Specialist, Google
