Google releases its search Zeitgeist list!
For 2007 make a resolution that your company is going to make it easier for the press and potential customers to find you.
Here’s an interesting list released by Google today on top searches in both Google News and Google.
One of the top ten terms under Google News is “autism” and having just done a radio interview for AutismOne Radio, I can tell you that it is both heartening and sad that this a top search term.
Heartening because I’m the mom of an amazing son named Gibson who is PDD-NOS and the more people know about autism the better, but this term being tops is also bittersweet because it means the rate of 1 in 160 children being diagnosed with autism is further evidenced by frantic parents searching Google for answers.
As a Mom who has several Google news alerts built around autism, I want all of those parents to know there is help and you and your child can do amazing things together.
And on the PR side, I urge all of you to tune into AutismOne Radio and look at their site and all the fantastic people they have available on their network.
For your company’s PR make a resolution to look into search engine optimization and make certain you’re on the search engine map. More and more journalists are reaching out to Google in terms of searching for possible thought leaders to tap for stories.
Be proactive and tune your Search up!
