It seems like only yesterday I was up until 2 am making sure everything was ready for our launch. Myself and my partner, Barry Wise (@BarryWise), were about to launch our first product-related site. It was a far stretch from the affiliate sites and client consulting work we had done in the past but we both thought it would work.
Microsoft released an announcement today that as of March 3rd, 2011, they will no longer be making editorial investigations into “complaints about trademarks used as keywords to trigger ads on Bing & Yahoo! Search in the United States and Canada.” What this basically means is they are allowing anyone to bid on a trademarked term for PPC (Pay Per Click) advertising, even if someone else owns the trademark on that term. They still, however, will investigate text within the ads (note their new “Investigations” policy).
We’re very pleased to announce today that we’ve added 20 new international TLDs (top-level domains) to our free service which checks domain name availability, bringing our total number of domain extensions searched to over 60.

Whether you’re looking to brand yourself personally, or find that perfect domain name for your business or client, we’re pretty confident that KnowEm is the only place like it for all your branding needs.

Today marks the one year anniversary of KnowEm’s public launch and we could not be any happier with how much success we’ve enjoyed during our first year in business. We also thought it might be fun to celebrate our birthday by relaunching the original social media name checking service which started it all, CheckUserNames.com.
It’s been pretty busy since the New Year here at the KnowEm offices in New Jersey. Last month we announced our acquisition of FriendsCall.Me, a very cool site developed by our friend Darius Monsef IV, and this week SXSW officially announced KnowEm as one of the 8 finalists in the Social Media Business category of the Microsoft BizSpark Accelerator Event.
