Andrew Girdwood: "Europe is a bit humble at times"

The SEO Roadshow is back on the road. Today we visit Scotland to interview a Scottish Search-adept: Andrew Girdwood. Andrew is the head of Search of Big Mouth Media, one of the major Search Marketing Firms in Europe

Andrew an I discussed a lot of different topics in this 25 minute podcast-interview. Off course I wanted to know how the expansion of Big Mouth Media in Europe is going and how a company of that size thinks and feels.

After that we also talked about the future of search, how the next generation will be looking at search and where Europe is heading.

You can download the podcast from in the post here or in the right navigation of the website.

A couple of quotes of the podcast:

"Big Mouth Media lives up to its name: its big"
Finding the right people is difficult, they have to be 'living online'.
"Most growing country in search: Netherlands is quite interesting"
"Culture of the company is important"
"Hard work and drinks"
"Yahoo, bless them.."
"I can't imagine the internet without Yahoo"
"Europe is a bit humble at times"
Europeans are more competitive.
About Searchcowboys: "finally we have a European voice"
"I can't see anyone challenging Danny Sullivan."
"We have a lot planned"
