This is one of a series of posts in which I will be highlighting each member of the Search Bloggers list, with commentary on one of their posts (new or old). Look for this series to continue once or twice a week for the next couple of months.
Meet Marty Weintraub, the Search Blogger of the Day. Today I'd like to highlight a post called Think SEO Before You Name Your New Company!. Marty discusses "direct brand searches", which is something that doesn't get the limelight in our industry very often. He reminds us of the difficulties we may face in ranking for our business name, if we fail to consider things such as what the company name initials are, what the competition is for local search with a common brand name, and more common-sense advice that should be considered. What are some of the funny "oops" brand names you've run across that the owners obviously didn't think through before choosing it?
If you want to know more about today's Search Blogger of the Day, check out Marty's about page.
That's the Search Blogger of the Day. If you are a search blogger, and aren't on the list yet, go here to find out how to be included. I plan to promote everyone on the list in various ways. Some will be informative, and some will be just plain fun. Don't miss out.

Thanks for the shout out Donna. I subscribe to your blog, so this was a treat.
The issue is of integrating SEO-think into serious pre-business planning is important. We hope your readers enjoy the post.
More and more newbies care catching on to this just a little too late….especially when thinking up the domain name.
Oops, “care” is “are” – big fingers + laptop = lots of oops
I think this is a two sides piece of bread. If you accidentally drop it on the ground you’ll get stuck either way.
Either good for SEO or it’s a good sounding brand name.
It’s great if you can find a name that’s good for SEO and that’s good for saying as well.
