The popularity of Internet as a medium of communication and source of information has surged in the recent years and this has also affected the use of digital marketing to woo customers. Businesses today are using a variety of digital distribution channels to reach their customers in a timely, relevant, personal and cost effective manner. Direct emails, Facebook, Twitter, and the apps on smartphone and digital tablets are some of the channels in which brands are effectively connecting with customers.
It seems that Bing favors Microsoft products, the Icelandic company DataMarket has been using that name since 2007 and has had it registered since that year. Recently Microsoft announced new services that has the same name. When you search for Datamarket on Google they came number one on both Google and Bing, now it is still number one on Google (The Microsoft DataMarket nowhere to be found) but second on Bing, with the Microsoft services number one.
Reykjavik Internet Marketing conference is just around the corner with speakers from Ericsson, Bing/Microsoft, Anomaly, CCP games and Icelandair to mention few.

Finally I must say, now that Adobe has made Flash indexable Google launches their Flash indexing algorithm. As most SEO people know the big problem with Flash-based websites has been that they could not be properly indexed by the likes of Google and Yahoo. Flash websites have been favored by marketers and advertisers for a long time, because of the ability to create rich, interactive Web experiences and now they can be indexed by Google, now let’s see what Yahoo and MSN do.
Andy Atkins Kruger feels that Microsoft should drop the Yahoo deal “there’s no global benefit!”. But what does it mean? This post at Multilingual Search on the global effect of the Yahoo/Microsoft deal is one of the longest blog-posts I have seen, but however gives an in-depth answer into the real impact of all of this. The final verdict is “Drop Yahoo deal Microsoft, there’s no global benefit!”.
But why is that? Andy thinks it’s short and sweet “it seems like a deal driven by US egos”.
Great post Andy!
