Search Columns

The difference between a blog and a column as far as this site is concerned is that a column is written to a schedule by an author and is subject to editorial control.

I have been writing a monthly column for CMSWire since late 2011. In 2012 and 2013 the column was mainly about intranet management, but in 2014 it was re-launched as a column on enterprise search, including website search. I have had the honour of being rated as one of the Top Contributors to CMSWire each year from 2012. Links to the columns appear below. 2017 column titles will be added as they are published.

Other contributors who cover search-related topics in their columns are Jed Cawthorne, Miles Kehoe, Sam Marshall and Joe Shepley
