I've been writing about search for over 10 years now but Danny Sullivan yesterday celebrated his 18th year anniversary of covering search.
Danny posted the accomplishment on Google+ saying, "My 18 year anniversary writing about search is today. So I guess I'm an adult at this now."
Like I said, I've been covering this space for a long time, not as long as Danny, but still a long time. I've seen people, personalities and search engines come and go. Danny has always been a figure in our industry, and more importantly, a rock-steady figure that has been here throughout it all.
So much so, he decided to post his first document when covering the space. Danny wrote this on Google+:
A piece of history in our industry. :)
If you have a moment, please drop Danny a note to thank him. He gets a ton of criticism being in his role but rarely do people say thanks.
