Joe Griffin's Summary
Joe Griffin is recognized as one of the original Search Engine Marketing engineers and is referenced by tens of thousands of web pages and several books including New York Times Best Selling Author, Jodee Blanco’s “The Complete Guide to Publishing”.
He began his Search Engine career in the 1990s tasked with helping the community establish SEO and submission standards and created the very popular online application which allowed owners to send their websites to hundreds of Search Engines and Directories with just the click of a button.
That process led to the standard industry phrase: "submit a website". Over 2 million submissions were made through Submitawebsite from 1998 to 2000. He incorporated the name in 1999 and opened his first office in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Submitawebsite.com quickly became a multimillion dollar operation which Joe sold to Web.com Inc., (NASDAQ:WWWW) in March of 2007, and which is now referred to as Web.com Search Agency. See reports: http://tinyurl.com/4pa4y7p
