#SEJSummit NY Recap: SEO Content, Analytics & More
(September 17, 2015)
I was invited to the 2015 SEJSummit in NYC hosted by Searchmetrics. It was unique in that they advertised zero vendor pitches, just content. And they definitely delivered on that promise. The day was jam-packed with 8 speakers, talking about a wide variety of topics ranging from content strategy to user tracking to mobile SEO. Each presentation […]
SEO Meetup recap – Is SEO in a “False Oasis”?
(July 10, 2015)
It’s been a while since I’d been to an SEO meetup (it seems like all of the big players stopped running them), so I was delighted to see a great panel sponsored by Yext. There were a few good industry friends, as well as other talented folks. The full lineup was: Mike King, Founder & Digital […]
Manufactured Outrage, Public Shaming and #TrevorNoah
(April 2, 2015)
Outrage is the new black. It’s been only a short four months since Slate’s 2014 recap, calling it the Year of Outrage. People don’t easily change behaviors, and we have yet another example of social media users rallying behind a campaign of anger. The victim du jour is Trevor Noah, who was announced to take over The […]
Broad City vs. Girls: Two Approaches to Addressing Rape Culture
(January 20, 2015)
There’s no denying that between the unverified University of Virginia rape allegations and the #YesAllWomen hashtag, rape culture is a hot button topic right now. These days, it seems like everyone’s writing analyses about its influence in media. I don’t make a habit of reviewing TV shows (mostly because I think it’s a stupid thing to do), but […]
Kenny’s Year in Review (Or How My SEO Job Search Brought Me To Digitas)
(December 31, 2014)
It’s been a few months since my last blog post, and for once I have a good reason. At the end of October, I left my position at GroupM/Mindshare, and jumped ship to DigitasLBi, where I am now the Manager of SEO for the New York office. I did not make this choice lightly. After […]
Agenda Setting Through Photos: Will the Real Michael Brown Please Stand Up?
(August 26, 2014)
Note: This blog post is not meant to pass judgment on the events that took place in Ferguson, but is rather a mass communication analysis of the responses from both mainstream and social medias. Death is always tragic, and this post is not meant to downplay the loss of life. On August 9, Michael Brown […]
Live Tweeting from the 2014 Mobile Media Upfront in NYC
(May 20, 2014)
I was invited to attend the Mobile Media Upfront presented by the Mobile Media Summit in New York City on May 19. There were many presenters from my employers’ family of companies (GroupM and WPP) as well as some who worked with my clients. There were many recurring themes, including current deficits in mobile analytics, […]
What Pro Wrestling Can Teach Advertisers About Kayfabe
(April 29, 2014)
Survivor was the first hit reality show in the United States (if you don’t count MTV’s The Real World), and with it, came many implications for the way viewers consumed content. Outside of news and game shows, it was the first time a lot of consumers were actively watching “real” people – People they could […]
Live Tweeting Super Bowl XLVIII Commercials
(February 2, 2014)
Here’s a recap of my thoughts on the commercials that aired during Super Bowl 48. Overall, I thought it was a pretty lackluster year. I went out of my way to not watch any of them beforehand (except some for work). Thoughts below: Most of the car commercials were weird for the sake of being […]
