By Michael Dorausch, D.C. This post is a combination of transcribed content from video recorded at a PubCon 2007 evening session that featured Matt Cutts, my organization of that content, and related resource links for websites or articles Matt spoke about during his presentation. The discussion was moderated by special guest host Guy Kawasaki, who was a keynote speaker at PubCon 2006.

479 Chiropractor Practices for Sale

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I was checking in on Planet Chiropractic classifieds today and noticed we have reached 479 advertisements related to selling chiropractic practices. That puts us 21 advertisements away from 500 current ads in the space of office sales. The practice for sale category has always been a popular one but growth has increased significantly since we opened up the ad network back in June of 2007. With the holiday season upon us, I’m not so sure how many advertisements will be placed throughout the remainder of December. At the pace new advertisements are being placed in the […]

This post is intended to serve as an online continuing education resource for chiropractors seeking information regarding postgraduate studies, license renewal, and other sources of training available to the chiropractic profession.

Search and Blogging Reporters Forum from Pubcon 2007

by Michael Dorausch Among my personally top-ranked sessions I attended at this past week’s Pubcon 2007 conference in Las Vegas was a Search and Blogging Reporters Forum that featured a panel of blog and media experts. The panel featured three big names in the industry of blogging and search (Andy Beal, Lee Odden, Rand Fishkin) and it was moderated by Michael McDonald, the current managing editor for WebProNews. I managed to get this photograph of all four gentlemen together, just before the morning search and blogging presentation got started. As an editor for Planet Chiropractic News (nearly 10 years now) […]

by Michael Dorausch They played until almost 3am, the Texas Holdem Poker Tournament at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas was a big success. There was lots of fun to be had, and search engine marketers from all over the planet came out to attend this first (I’m suspecting a 2008 event is likely) large scale poker tournament played by attendees of PubCon 2007. The event began at 9pm and did not end until around 3am, with Dan Perry beating out Jeremy Shoemaker, for a winning pot of over $3000.00. That’s David Klein of PurposeInc with winner Dan Perry. David […]

Matt Cutts on Directories and Links

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. This is a quick post from the front row at PubCon 2007 in Las Vegas. Matt Cutts just took a question from a person in the audience who asked about directories being hit in the index back in September. When Matt is researching directories owned by an individual (or group) he will go through those sites and confirm who owns them. If the directory owner says yes, I own these other domains, Matt will look at those as well. He will also ask about any expired domain, to get an idea of what other domains the […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I’m in Las Vegas at Pubcon 2007 with about 2000 others listening to the kickoff keynote speaker, Craig Newmark of Craigslist. If you don’t know what craigslist is, I don’t know where you’ve been. I’m just realizing this morning how much Craig’s creation has affected my life. I have hired at least 3 employees from the site, hired models for chiropractic photo shoots, sold computer equipment, purchased furniture for my office, and attracted people to my adiola office. The web site has probably resulted in over a billion transactions and its allowed people to connect to […]

Things I learned from Guy Kawasaki at Pubcon 2006

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. It’s amazing how many things can change in a single year’s time. About this time last year I was attending an Internet conference at the Las Vegas convention Center in Nevada. The conference is called PubCon and it is attended by thousands of webmasters, SEOs, web marketers, and entrepreneurs. This years PubCon 2007 event begins on Tuesday, December 4th, and I will be attending in representation of Planet Chiropractic. I was looking back over some of the changes that Planet Chiropractic has experienced during the past year and I was reminded of a keynote address given […]
