Need a Webmaster in California? 

Last night, I got a very nice email from a Technology Recruiter. He had seen my online portfolio and was checking to see if I was available and interested in working as a webmaster for a Biotech firm in the South Bay. While it was very nice to be considered, the job was a permanent position, which isn't something that I'm looking for at the moment.

I'm always curious to know how people find me and my portfolio, so whenever I get an email like this, I ask.

This was his response:

I found your portfolio doing a search for webmaster, California and resume. You come up on the first and second pages of Yahoo and Google respectively.


I had no idea...
I immediately went to Google and typed in "webmaster california resume" and...


First listing on Google!

what a shocker! who knew?

I'm guessing that it's a combination of many things:

I often have people ask me how clients find me. I tell them that generally, it's through word of mouth (which is the nicest compliment of all), but it also could be because they see a site that I've done (I always have my by-line at the bottom of the main page) and every once-in-a-while, someone manages to find me doing a blind web search...

just like this.

But really, of all the web designers in all of Silicon Valley... I'm still amazed when people manage to find me.

That's really cool.

It kind of made my day.
