I was down in Santa Clara last week to speak at the Internet Income Summit. It was a three day Internet marketing event and I spoke on two of days on the topic of CPA marketing with PPC and PPV traffic.
While I was in California, I decided to take a tour of all major Internet companies and saw where Yahoo, Google and Facebook have firmly planted their roots.
With the number of dot com companies all over Silicon Valley, I can see why people move here because the motivation to create a dot com success is definitely here.
The Google complex is massive with over 40 different buildings that house their tens of thousands of employees. To think that a company that only started about 10 years ago could go on to become one of the largest companies in the world is credit to Google for doing something right.
On the other hand, Yahoo seems to be a company with no clear direction. Their facility is nowhere near the size of Google`s and it looks like they are struggling to find their purpose now that they have inked a deal with Microsoft to have Bing.com power their natural search results.
Above is a picture of me standing behind one of the many Google signs placed outside each building.
I did get a chance to stop by and meet with Revenueloop.com, which is a CPA network that I have been working with for years. Their office was located directly across from Google, so that in itself is motivation enough to grow. 😉
Leave your comments on your experiences in Silicon Valley.
It is amazing to think that none of these companies would exist if it wasn’t for the Internet.
