I remember setting up the home pages to Google back in 99 as a contractor, just to wind up the accounts department, who were all Alta Vista fans.

How times have changed. Can safely say it's been a love hate relationship. From simple SEO, easily manipulated traffic we all took for granted, to a maturing of the industry and professionalism that now makes me cringe when looking backwards.

Google has certainly been instrumental, maybe not always in a positive way, but few companies have had such a direct impact.

A begrudging happy birthday. The next 20 years looks set to be even more disruptive and interesting!

Feels like 50 to me. I remember an agent selling me AdWords in 2006 on my then, mortgage broker business. I don't want to say how much money I blew through trying to keep a business afloat in a doomed market. A few years later, I got out of mortgages and into SEO, local and now Ads. What a ride - love it so much more than mortgages.
