I am unable to consider I’m writing one other put up about one other soul within the search advertising house passing away at an early age. Bob Gladstein, somebody who has been a part of the search group for most likely two-decades or so, unexpectedly handed Friday night time on the age of 57.
Bob went beneath the Twitter alias of @bubba_ji and you’ll see, he was replying to Web optimization questions on Twitter simply final week. His Twitter bio summed him up effectively, “Organic Web optimization man; Unhipster from a hipster city.” He was tremendous lively within the previous Web optimization boards, like HighRankings Forums and others. He was only a real and good man.
Julie Joyce, from Link Fish Media, despatched me this about her buddy Bob:
Bob and I am going manner again…
I am unable to recall whether or not we first met on-line by means of speak of music or movie however it was one of many two. He and I had very related style in each and I at all times appeared ahead to his Instagram film opinions as out of all of them, there was just one that I’d seen. He had implausible anecdotes and at all times had a superb story a few band I preferred. Just final week he accepted my invitation to hitch a FB music group and I used to be completely thrilled and grateful that we received yet another good Devo story out of him.
He was an extremely clever man with zero vanity or ego, with such deep data. I’ll drastically miss our chats and know that the individuals who knew him are left with some superb recollections of a very fantastic human.
