hahah. I did that too. Remember Hotbot and webcrawler? And MSN. lol. MSN was the first search engine I used. And Netscape 1 Beta.
When I started seo, Yahoo was new and so small that they indexed sites by hand. When you submitted, they’d email personally with a review of the site you’d submitted. Google didn’t even exist yet.
It’s a small world, indeed. :)
