Remembrance Day and the Internet of the 1990’s

Internet Marketing November 11th, 2008



poppy_flower Remembrance Day is a time of year that we all honour and commemorate the many sacrifices made by war veterans that helped protect democracy during times of war to be what it is today.

Since this is an internet marketing blog,  I thought that we could examine the internet in its infancy and celebrate the tools we used in the past to help get us to where we are today.

So without further adieu, here are some memories of the past for people that may have used the internet back in the 1990’s.  Remember and appreciate;

  • When search engines like Yahoo!, AltaVista, Ask Jeeves were far more relevant?
  • For SEO’s; do you remember when meta tags were actually an important element in getting your site ranked?
  • The Google Dance
  • 14.4 modems & BBS boards
  • When you couldn’t make a phone call because the modem was using the internet
  • Netscape Navigator
  • Napster and Kazaa
  • ICQ
  • AOL as the number 1 gateway to the internet

Do you have your own memory of the early times of the internet?  Share them!
