Scouting the Competition

November 2nd, 2005
SEO word map

While searching the internet when I should be sleeping, I found this posting on the Invoke Media website. Apparently they have been hired by the Sauder School of Business to help them with their online marketing and search engine optimization efforts. As I’d recently stated my determination to try and rank better for the phrase Sauder School of Business in my most recent article on search engine optimization, this makes them the competition.

Why am I posting this, to see if they are awake? Actually one of the toughest sites to beat and I said this when Jeremy was putting it together will be the new MBA Society webpage. Danna and I even added their URL (MBASociety.ca) to our PowerPoint presentation we are giving tomorrow on the Sauder School of Business at UBC. This is part of the Tsinghua School of Economics and Management International Exchange Forum event tomorrow.

I have a lot more postings I’d like to get to, but they will have to wait until another day, I really should be in bed.

Of course they have a blog, and even odder they have their offices in the same building 100World used to be in. I spent way too much time in that building working on ZooPlus.de. I was even in the official photo. 100 World Canada is no more, but the German parent company lives on. And Steffen Muller who is now with Google seems to have a gallery of photos up from that time. He also became a classmate of my former UVIC CSC classmate Abe Rauch while they did the MBA Management of Technology program at SFU together.

The other founders of 100World Canada have their own thing going again, it’s called The Level. I guess I should give them the linkage and show that no one can hide from the Musk online. Of course Steffen has a blog too, and what is he blogging about, hiring for Google. I already gave him my resume, have you?
