Twitter for Search Engine Placement

Twitter for SEP
Twitter just changed their title tags on their site to know not only show you your twitter handle but also your real name (or company name).
Minor tweak right? Wrong…. this makes now a huge impact on search engine placement. Did a search for my name and like Emeril *Bam*. My twitter is top third on Google Results.
Tried it with other names like “jimmy fallon”, “obama”, “karen denisse” and they are ALL on Google’s first page results….

It was a late Friday, work was done and there was a big empty box from our new LCD TV just sitting in this dark corner.

“I know what to do!”


Sony’s latest ad for Sony Bravia

The spot features the enormous Bravia-drome, the world’s biggest ever zoetrope, a rotating series of static images viewed through small slits, which was officially verified by the Guinness Book of Records. The filming of the zoetrope took place last November in the town of Venaria, near Turin, Italy.

Road To Recovery Launch

The Florida Keys and Key West are doing their part in response to the economic crisis. Today a new commercial entitled “The Road To Recovery” will begin airing on national cable TV. The spot was created by Tinsley Advertising in Miami and shows spectacular aerial shots of the Overseas Highway, one of the most scenic drives in the world with views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Along the way we experience kayaking, fishing, diving and nature. The voice over says “Officially it’s the Overseas Highway, but these days it’s the road to recovery.” The viewer is then directed to for special savings throughout the Keys. “We wanted to create a message that lets people know that there is no time like now to live your life and focus on what’s really important, spending time with the people you love in a beautiful place like the Florida Keys” said Dorn Martell, Creative Director at Tinsley. “Today people need permission to travel” said John Underwood, Account Supervisor. “Everyone is looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. Our spot shows them that paradise is on the last stretch of US-1, known as the Overseas Highway.” The new spot will run as part of the Florida Keys “Come as You Are” campaign created by Tinsley who has held the Florida Keys account for 22 years.
