Back in April I received an email from Andrew Greenberg from Forbes. He was writing an article on Google’s supplemental index. He found me through a comment I made on Aaron Wall’s blog. He wanted me to call him to discuss his story. (I need to get a phone one of these days!)
I was in Cambodia at the time so it would have been difficult to call him. The finished article was published some time ago “Condemned To Google Hell“.
I at least got close to getting a mention in mainstream press, but the point of this post is that journalists are going beyond the usual sources of information to research their stories and you never know when you might benefit from something you did months ago.
