I KNOW What YOU Did and I KNOW Where YOU Are!

Posted on April 16th, 2013 by AndrewHazenCom  |  No Comments »

Most know that I am an angel investor and admitted domain name addict; however most do not know that I am also an attorney specializing in Digital Media law, Internet law and Corporate law with New York’s leading law firm Ruskin Moscou Faltischek.

With the tragic events in Boston yesterday, the Internet lawyer inside me wanted to look for the Cybersquatters (a/k/a scum) that take advantage of a national tragedy by registering related domain names ONLY in an effort to PROFIT from these horrific events. While I was hoping to find nothing, that is SELDOM the case…..

BostonMarathonBomb.com
registered on 4/15/13 by
Mr. Myers – imdone97(at)yahoo.com
Queen Anne, MD 21657

At the time of this post, this domain name currently brings up a business that sells gift cards – WTF??

BostonBombing.org
registered on 4/15/13 by
Phillip Barton – philzinvesting(at)gmail.com
Rocky Mount, NC 27804

This person appears to be a cybersquatter and is undeniably trying to sell this domain name as it says on the website “Premium Key-Word Rich Domains For Sale! Would you this Domain? Please email me to negotiate a transfer….”

NOTE – this makes me sick!!!

BostonMarathonBombing.com
registered on 4/15/13 and while there is a “private registration” (for $9 extra per year) so we cannot see who registered this domain name….the site is a “memorial site” (if you can say that) and states:

“DO NOT: Donate to any funds or Facebook groups that popped up 10 mins after the event occurred. The Red Cross is your best bet if you’re planning on contributing to the relief effort.
Join the discussion at http://www.reddit.com/r/worldnews/comments/1ceyx1/boston_marathon_explosions_two_dead_64_injured_as/
for info regarding this domain or if you have a legitimate, charitable use for it, contact info@bostonmarathonbombing.com”

BostonBombing.com
registered on 4/15/13 and while there is a “private registration” (for $9 extra per year) the site does redirect to the American Red Cross site, specifically for the Boston Marathon

BostonBombing.net
registered on 4/15/13 but the Cybersquatter did a “private registration” (for $9 extra) so we cannot see what low life registered this….the website is “parked” which essentially means they are trying to make money from the website/domain name by people clicking on links within the site.

There are more domain names and I will update this post with my findings…..

To all you Cybersquatters listed above, I hereby DEMAND that you forward these domains to a real 501(c)3 non-profit such as American Red Cross, etc.

Oh, besides being an attorney in New York, I am ALSO admitted to practice law in the Common Wealth of Massachusetts so be prepared!!

Improvements on Universal Search

Posted on February 11th, 2010 by AndrewHazenCom  |  No Comments »

Nearly 3 years ago there were talks about Universal Search (see Search Engine Land article from 5/16/07) and over the years we have seen some changes in search results such as Google Local, Videos in search results, some shopping engine feeds, news feeds, etc.

Last night I was doing some research for AllIceCreamCoupons.com and I was pleasantly surprised when I did a search for ice cream and saw the results below:

If you try this search yourself in Google you will see:

- A twitter stream in search results

- Google Local (google map) in search results

- Imagines in search results

- News feed in search results

- Book results in search results

This is a great example of how Universal Search is improving!

Social media marketing is not a quick, free way to impact your bottom line.

A comprehensive and well-planned Social Media campaign sounds like a lot of work because it is!

You have to do it right and invest A LOT of time….I mean A LOT upfront for you to see the long tail effects of your efforts.
Many things come into play with social media such as reputation, credibility, longevity, number of responses, frequency of activity, delivering helpful and useful info as opposed to self-serving info, etc., etc.

How do you accomplish this?  With a strategic Internet marketing plan that outlines a plan for social media optimization and marketing.

We have executed a “Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Eat Breakfast in the Morning” and by simply using our Digg power account, we drove 26,000 unique visitors to a website in one day…the POWER of social media!!  It does work well when done right!

Just read a great article this morning entitled: 5 Essentials for Social Media Marketing

The POWER of Teamwork and Passion…

Posted on July 16th, 2009 by AndrewHazen  |  No Comments »

I can tell you from first hand experience that Teamwork + Passion = SUCCESS!

When you work with a team that actually cares and has passion for the business you WIN!
When every team member feels as though they have contributed in some capacity to the companies
Success, you all win!

This might sound simple and straightforward but let me tell you that it is NOT so easy to follow…
Finding the RIGHT people isn’t always so easy…I think this plays towards the Entrepreneur vs. Worker-bee

Have you ever read Michael Gerber’s book the eMyth? I highly recommend it as it changed the way we conduct our business.
