About Vanessa Fox
I write and speak about the search engine industry and searcher behavior and help companies with online strategy and audience engagement. I'm fascinated by our searching culture and how it's shifted the way we seek out and consume information.
In 2010, I wrote Marketing in the Age of Google, which I updated and released as a second edition in 2012.
In 2008, I founded Nine By Blue and Blueprint Search Analytics, which I sold in 2013.
Now I'm CEO of Keylime Toolbox, software that generates online performance insights from Google Webmaster Tools, web analytics, and server logs for organizations of all sizes.
I'm also traveling the United States in an RV, working from a different city every day.
Girl Meets RoadI'm working from a different city every day, traveling the country in my Roadtrek 170. See where I am now at Girl Meets Road.
