My partner Mike Ray used to own his name on Google. But, alas, once he hit the millionaire club in his company he got lazy, and in January of 09 he entered his name, only to find (gasp!) he’s doesn’t own a SINGLE spot in the top 50 for the search term “mike ray”! Shock and horror!
Of course, I had to gloat because I’m currently sitting pretty on 40 of the top 50 spots for “dave sherwin,” out of 565,000 results. And yes, I get traffic from it, as well as the branding and peace of mind that if somebody wants to research me, my articles and sites come up and they see stuff about me, not a “fake” Dave Sherwin. (If that’s your name I apologize
