SEO Roadshow interview: Mediadonis aka Marcus Tandler
One of Europes most succesfull affiliates / SEOs is living in Munich, Germany. But most off the time he is not there, because he's on the road, speaking at conferences, partying in Rio, playing poker or working on one of his projects. Recently he could even be found in the Amazon, for a project called Amazonica.
Most readers familiar with the industry will read this introduction and know I'm talking about Marcus Tandler, aka Mediadonis. We talked to Marcus to find out what he is up to and what the life of a succesfull European SEO/Affiliate looks like.
Could you introduce yourself to the readers of Searchcowboys?
I´m Marcus, also known as “Mediadonis”, and I´m an Online-Marketing & especially SEO Geek, Affiliate & Blogger.
You are known by the name Mediadonis, why this name?
Would you call yourself more an affiliate or more a search-person?
You travel a lot, what sort of trips are those? All to events?
But I also just love to travel. It´s so nice for an Affiliate to be able to work from literally everywhere, since you really only need your laptop.
What do you believe is the best event in the world?
That ´s a really good question & and a tough one… I actually loved SES San Jose the most, especially because of Google Dance – the awesome party directly at the Googleplex, but as I heard, there´s not going to be another Google Dance… I also love SES New York, which is always pretty great, since it´s just so huge, and PubCon, because it´s in Vegas, and everybody´s there & partying :)
How would you compare the European search community to the rest of the world? Is Europe behind, in front or is it similar?
The German market seems to be growing more and more, how do you feel the German market stands compared to the rest of Europe?
What will be the biggest source of traffic in five years?
Do you believe real time search engines will be a thread to Google's dominance?
Would you call Twitter a search engine?
How do you feel about Bing?
