Marin Software, You Flatter Me

September 5, 2011

Look what I saw over the weekend when I was vanity searching my name in Google.



Marin Software is running PPC ads against my name and targeting the ads at small businesses.

Awwww, shucks. You flatter me, Marin!

(And yes, I’ll gladly thank you with that link above. New idea: Vanity PPC ads as a link building technique.)

Before I get too full of myself, though, it’s important to remember that Google itself was running PPC ads against David & Mike almost two years ago. And I don’t think Google has ever run ads against my name …. boo-hoo! šŸ™

    Matt – my guess is that you were actually re-targeted by Marin Software šŸ™‚ Google is sneaky that way…

      You mean no one’s advertising on my name? What, do you want to kick my dog while you’re at it? šŸ˜‰
