Sasch Mayer & Google, or “The Google and I”

I know Google, and Google knows me…

Still here? Not convinced yet, eh?

OK, so let me answer the one question I get asked more than any other: "Does my long-term relationship with Google give me access to The Secret Sauce?"

In a word: "NO" absolutely not. Anyone who claims to have access to Google's secret sauce had better be Larry PageSergey Brin, or one of maybe half a dozen high-level Google employees... otherwise they're liars.

What my lengthy association with the search-giant does give me is an unrivalled insight into the way Google works, and into its evolution over the better part of a decade. As I've said before: "I know Google..." probably better than most outsiders ever will.

You're here because your website needs help...
