SEO Roadshow: unique series of interviews
Today on Search Cowboys we launch a very unique series of interviews. In the upcoming months we will be publishing interviews with some of the big names in Search in Europe and worldwide.
The interviews will be done through podcasts, texts and videos. That way readers of Searchcowboys will get a good view of how the people in Search think about their profession and the market. The series can be found under the name ‘Joost & Friends discuss some internet stuff’ in the SEO Roadshow channel.
The interviews are setup by three Cowboys: Joost de Valk, Eduard Blacquière and Bas van den Beld. Joost de Valk was able to get some of his search-friends to do an interview with the Cowboys. Eduard and Bas joined in to do the interviews.
In the next months, amongst others, Kevin Ryan (Search Engine Strategies), Dennis Mortensen (Indextools), Danny Sullivan (SearchEngineLand), Dave Naylor and Matt Cutts (Google) will tell us their vision on the search market.
The kick off interview is with Kevin Ryan who visited Holland this month. Joost de Valk talked to him.
