Google Dance

Google did it again last night with a cast of thousands partying their way from 7-11:30 pm at the Googleplex. The rock ‘n roll theme with tattoo inspired artwork set the stage for another festive post conference event. There was dancing and buffets both inside and out, chess, pool, karyoke, meet the engineers and many, many kegs of beer/bottles of wine. Nothing ran out this time except the very cool looking T-Shirts.

Always looking to shake things up, the TopRank blogging team convinced Google security to cough up a volleyball and promptly started a game in Google’s sandy volleyball court.

  4. Hey you guys were really cool to talk to in line and on the bus ride to Google for the dance. Hope to run into you guys again at one of the upcoming conferences.


  5. You guys do any of the Karaoke? When I searched on the Google Dance I noticed a bunch of published videos on Youtube. Some of them are pretty funny. American Idol pre season funny. This one is my favorite. http://youtube.com/watch?v=n7rVs2ITKLI
    If you guys did one post it up, so we can all see.


  1. […] Besides coverage of the conference sessions, there were also the after conference “networking” events, ie parties including: SES Dinner at Hanoke Gardens, Google Dance, Women in Search Luncheon, Yahoo Book Party and of course, the infamous Search Bash. Conferences are a great way to make new friends, continue existing friendships and further your knowledge in a fast paced, ever-changing industry. It’s those personal connections that can speed up knowledge transfer and the acquisition of truly productive insight. The information presented in the sessions by themselves is great, but having discussions and debates about that information with smart, lateral thinking search marketing professionals afterwards is where the real value comes.

  3. Rick Klau from Chicago to Honorary Engineer at the Google Dance says:

    […] Rick Klau was an honorary engineer for one night at the Google Dance 2007. You’ll recall that Rick, formerly “Mr. Naperville”, moved west to work at Google’s headquarters shortly after Feedburner’s acquisition. Rick reports that his commute consists of a short 10 minute drive followed by a one hour bus ride that is fully productive with Internet access. It was nice to see you Rick, hope to see you again soon! […]
