It's hard to believe we're ramping up for Q4 of 2012. Under the assumption that the Mayans were wrong, I've already started thinking about 2013 and what might happen in digital marketing next year, specifically paid search.
We all know that paid search is a fast-paced industry, but I think 2013 is set up to be especially frenetic.

… what is this place?
I love cats (maybe not as much as this girl).
They're independent, smart, and clean - and a source of endless hours of internet entertainment. But cats are also the worst. They whine for food that they don’t even eat, tear through the house like they're being chased by an ax murderer at 4am, and bring home piles of dead woodland creatures because they think we suck at hunting.
