1 Year Anniversary Review Grant

December 16th, 2010 · 4 Comments · News

Quad LogoComing just 1 year after the questionably successful Lake Champlain Quadricentennial, it’s just been announced that “review grants” are available for application. Grants to review the 2009 event.

The National Heritage Partnership is now offering up to $100,000 for the Legacy Program. Individual grants up to $10,000 will be available for programs designed to capture the atmosphere of the 2009 celebration.

“This will probably be the last go around, the last opportunity for Quad funding … focusing on archival and conservation work for the different reports and programs that were created for the Quad.” (Link)

It seems too unbelievable to be fake. I have a simple and cheap suggestion – A Good Website.

November 6th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Destination Marketing

Essence of Politics

If so, then you’re also not likely monitoring your web statistics.  It’s so easy to get ripped-off these days, but also so easy to avoid.  This is something you have to do – YOU, the person who pays the bills.

Click Fraud – Don’t be a Victim!

Ignore this if you don’t know what SEO stands for.

Cheap DMO – SEO Juice Through Blogging

May 18th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Destination Marketing

“You’re 5 years ahead of your time.” That’s what someone told me when I suggested adding a “blog” to our site. Heck, I wanted to use it exclusively as the Content Management System. Maybe if I get someone else to sing this tune, it will be more effective.

Google Layermania is Vertical Search

May 16th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Destination Marketing

Some days back I was searching Google Maps and noticed the “Explore this Area” link. I guess I was too busy or something to fully digest the implications of this. Then, I notice the “More” layer appear next to “Map”. Photos from Panoramio?

Panaramio on Google Maps

Then on Tuesday, my favorite Google Map gossip site announced the arrival of Wikipedia entries. Now they got my attention BIG TIME. Watch out Mapquest, Google is about to knock you off the top spot.

I mentioned this to Dave P. from Google yesterday, but it kind of seemed like news to him as well. Question: What is Google doing with the layers? What layers are coming next?

I just answered one of my own burning questions. And the answer is Yes. Google is entering into vertical search across their platforms and more. Holy Crap!

While we were blabbing, the Real Estate layer was added. And News is coming next week.

Explore by location. Map layers by category. Geotagged webpages, video, images, blogs, hotels, attractions.

Will this eliminate the need for user created maps? Or will the human filter again rise to the top?
