3 Years of State of Search: Happy Birthday to a Great Blog (and win!)

Estimated reading time: 1 minute, 16 seconds

Last Saturday marked a special day. On that day 3 years ago we published our very first article (in which we even mentioned Google Buzz, wow!). Three years ago we were at the first day of SES London (which again takes place this week), and I remember sitting with a group of brand new State of Search blogger around a round table bashing out the first articles. If I am correct Lisa Myers was there, Sam Murray, Louis Venter and Nichola Stott. Today we write (this one!) our 2300 th article.

Three years later we are the most successful search blog and Europe, knocking on doors of becoming one of the most important blogs world wide. An incredible adventure started there three years ago and we are now making plans for a very interesting and bright future. For now we’d like to thank you for reading our articles and thank the 38 bloggers for their excellent material of the years. Here’s to the future!

    Personally, I have to say that my favourite post ever on StateofSearch was the incredibly thorough and useful

    ‘How to do a Mobile SEO Audit: Identifying and Maximizing your Website Mobile Potential’ from Aleyda Solis

    One of my favorite posts was on why people search for contact lenses in October. It was a great example of looking at data, adding some marketing knowledge, and coming up with an actionable insight.

    One thing that is fast becoming a great tool for online music promotions
    is internet radio. You can even get a listing of all local stations in your area as well.
    While traditional radio broadcasters have often used the Internet to advertise
    or promote their shows, Internet radio technology has actually revolutionized the concept and simple programming requirements have taken it to the extent
    where individuals, organizations or anyone for that matter,
    can easily host their own Internet talk radio station from the comfort
    of their home.
