Rand Fishkin On The Oprah Show! (really!)
Posted 08 February 2008 - 07:21 PM
On Valentine's Day, Rand and Geraldine's romantic TV engagement will be discussed. They fly out to Chicago next Monday to film the segment on Tuesday and he has the air confirmed for V-day.
I bet they show the hilarious video
Congratulations to Rand and "Mystery Guest".
You'll mention Cre8asiteforums right? :pieinface:

When I first saw the title of this thread, my immediate thought was "Why is Oprah interested in SEO?"
Posted 08 February 2008 - 08:36 PM
I thought exactly the same thing. My, we HAVE gone mainstream with SEO, I was thinking
Well, congratulations, Rand. That's really something. Now, I hope you've told your fiancee about THIS show and aren't going to spring it on her. I imagine she's had quite enough surprises of that kind to last a lifetime.
I hope someone will YouTube it.

The problem I see is the level of the occassion bar that Rand has set:
* proposal via Veronica Mars and national TV.
* valentines via Oprah and national TV.
* wedding via theDonald?
I can see the finger pointing and hear him say: 'you're married!'

I'll have to figure out where this is... or how.... Or better, maybe someone can tape the show and put the relevant part on YouTube?

Uhhh!! That's so unreal. (somebody add "like, totally!" ...)
Totally man. Groovy. Farout! Go Rand and Mystery Guest!
I thought the same thing - Oprah is into SEO for some darn reason.

Ah well, it's fun, it makes for a great story, and it's exciting to share something like this with friends and family, even those who are far away

Is this the start of a long running love affair with the media as well? Are you contracted in with any multi-media organizations for births, baptisms, etc etc
HA! Good luck with everything. Life is funny - and you're working it well!

Someone please youtube it...

However, that's awesome, Rand. Sorry to have your story "produced", I am sure it's better, than what the producer described it to be. Btw, did you try offering some alternative wording "from a marketing perspective"?

The "coaching" of the producer made for some very odd tape - she literally just wanted me repeating what she said, not putting out the story as it is.
I bet. Nice to see things from that side though; one of those wake up calls about how what you see is made

Somebody must get this on YouTube for us foreigners.

Good one Rand
As for "coaching": yes unfortunately that's what happens everywhere, I once wrote an article for a magazine and the editor left nothing of my original idea in there even, the whole point of the article was changed "to accomodate their readers" ffs! Kinda difficult to deal with once you get used to controlling your own content as a blogger hehe

They showed part of the engagement video and some tape of Rand at home, to help flesh out the story. There was no mention of who Rand is, or his company, or Cre8asiteforums (ha ha). They looked beautiful on stage, and naturals. Rand appeared calm and MG was delightfully shy. Both were clearly devoted to each other and laughing a lot! I just love Geraldine...she's such sunshine.
They did say their wedding is in Sept..14th? An exciting year for them.
