Organic Search / SEO Tips
Google, Google and more Google

I love stuff like this. Over at Fortune, they have a series of interesting articles all about Google or relating to Google including:
  • Google topping the 100 Best Companies to Work for in 2008 list
  • 10 Fascinating Googlers
  • Top 50 Companies - yup you guessed it, Google gets the nod
  • Where are they now? A story on 13 ex-Googlers and what they have been up to since leaving the Googleplex.
  • Help Wanted: Google - thinking of sending your resume to Google? Check this out.
  • 9 Things your didn't know about Google
This is cool stuff. I knew Google was innovative and have heard the hype about working at the Googleplex, but some of this stuff is pretty amazing. For example did you know that:
  • for the release of blockbuster films (think Transformers and Lord of the Rings) Google rents an entire theater for the day. Upwards of 6,000 Googlers and one guest each. Cool.
  • Google's intranet "Moma" is most often used to search out other Googlers as the directory provides photos of nearly 16, 000 employees.
  • Google's office have some interesting designs including an all Lego built Google logo at their New York office.
  • We've all heard about Google's chefs and their amazing cafeterias... well Google actually has a rule that workers can never be more than 100 feet away from food. No wonder Googlers never want to leave the Googleplex.
  • Some of Google's job openings in the past include; Lawyers to negotiate licensing deals with Hollywood for video and digital music, Strategic Negotiator, Submarine Cable ('nuff said) and a Mobile Wireless Application Developer (for assistance with their Android operating system perhaps?)
  • Andy Rubin, Google's Director of Mobile Platforms and creator of Android, Google's operating system for cellphones got his start as a robot engineer. Speaking of Android, does anyone know if these Android based phones will be available in Canada out of the gate? If so when?
  • Many of Google's former employees are becoming "angel investors" based on the wealth they have acquired from Google.
I am lucky to experience similar items here at Enquiro. While we don't have the Googleplex, we have the Enquiro-Dome. We have employees that are brilliant, unique and innovative. We have a trendy office with street signs and traffic lights. We have monthly and annual events to support our community. We have highly sought after SEO and SEM consultants. We perform leading edge research. We have fun together through annual events such as our whitewater rafting adventures, we have subsidized gym memberships. We have a kitchen full of nutritional snacks and beverages. We are proud of our corporate culture. Google is famous for their corporate culture. This may be the one single reason as to why they again top the list of the best places to work. The same could be said about Enquiro but on a much smaller level.
