2009 Best of RKG Blog

For those of you who are new to RKG Blog, we thought we’d cobble together a list of what we think were our most enduring posts of 2009. We left off news posts like Mark’s — he was the first person in the industry to spot eBays migration from Yahoo to Google ads. Important post, but no longer as relevant as it was at the time.

Anyhow, we think these are as close to “must reads” as we had to offer last year. If we missed one of your favorites let us know :-)
