Google’s Global Domination Grows – 65% now!

HitWise (a very reputable source) now lists Google as accounting for 65.13% of all US searches for the four weeks ending May 26, 2007.  This is very much in line with what we are seeing when analyzing our client’s statistics.


This is up 10% over the past year.

Yahoo came in second at just over 20%.

CHINA – 150 million regular Internet Users – 10.5 % of population

INDIA – 25 million regular Internet Users – 7.5% of urban population


See Pictures of Our New Charlotte SEO Office in Cornelius, NC

Hippo Internet Marketing opened our new Charlotte SEO Training Office in Cornelius, North Carolina this week.  We packed up much of our Asheville area office on Thursday and Friday.  Friday night, we took the 26–foot truck down Old Fort Mountain (at about 30 MPH the whole way) and headed east.

Jason will continue to work out of Black Mountain for another month or so.  And I will be traveling back and forth between Charlotte and Asheville about once per week. 

Here are some videos of the new office. 


Davidson Pointe – See our new home online

Sandy and I now call Davidson Pointe our new home.  We moved into the new house this past weekend.  Davidson is a very cute little town north of Charlotte in the Lake Norman region.  Our home is toward the center of this development of about 150 homes. 

Davidson Pointe is basically on a penninsula, which is nice.  The homes are being built by Saussy Burbank and we got the “Avery” floor plan.  About half of the homes are built and sold.  The whole place will take about two years total, we hear.  So this time next year it may be complete.

Here’s some videos to help you see what it looks like.
