Video-tip: Danny Sullivans keynote on local search

Posted October 8th, 2009 in search, Video by Bas van den Beld

I ran into this video below yesterday. I hadn’t seen it before, and was pleasantly surprised. Danny Sullivan, probably the best known search guru in the world, did a keynote at "Where 2.0" last May. He talked about local search and what issues the ‘normal guy’ could have with local. It’s a very good keynote because Sullivan knows how to combine humor with lessons and search and is able to present the issues in a language anyone, not just the search community, can understand. It’s a killer tip therefore: watch this!

Last week I visited PICNIC. Some keynotes were way out and did not get close to what the ‘normal guy’ is doing on the web. Others are usefull if you, like me, want to ‘explain’ to people what’s going on. Charles Leadbeater’s presentation did both. Leadbeater wrote a book and he also made a short film. People around him said the film told the entire story in a simple way. Be the judge yourself:
