So a trending topic today today was how pof.com (Plenty of Fish) removed a free featured and has taken into their paid member only section. I wanted to mention it because there are businesses thinking about doing something like this right now, and there will be more in the future.

12 Oct Creating Microsites for Amazing Real Estate Properties

It seems that creating an entire website, domain and all, is becoming a really fashionable way to market a single, usually very special, residence online. Granted, you probably won't have nearly enough time to set one up for each listing, but for the ones that could really use some exposure, it might just be worth your time to throw up a micro site and maybe get a few potential buyers interested that wouldn't have known about the property before.

23 Aug Seth Godin TED Talk On Tribes

This Seth Godin talk he did for one of his TED talks is a real gem and if you somehow missed it, then here it is. I'm a huge fan of his and our slogan kind of hints at that. While most people associate us with building links, we're trying to change that in a big way. It all starts with an idea, and ultimately how you spread that idea to others. Seth Godin is a man you should listen...

11 Aug Infographic Marketing Strategies For Links & Brand Buzz

Marketing your infographics properly is a sure fire way to snag natural links, build brand buzz and gain social media followers. It's a form of content creation that is relatively inexpensive to do and can continue to bring in links for years to come. The latter aspect really gets me excited because I've seen some crazy good links come in a year later from some great topical link bait. There's no doubt that infographics have become the most widely used...

There are an endless stream of commercials out there, some good, some bad. Some are so bad that they're amazing and that brings us to my commercial post of the day.

23 Mar Link Building Reads For The Last Bit Of March

Since I'm due in meetings and what not, I thought I would do a quick round up post to all the latest and greatest posts on link building and other things. There's always so much great content flying around on any given week, so it's sad I can't get to this more often. As always. I love it when you leave links to great articles I missed in the comments, so by all means go to town on that. This...

14 Jan 7 Link Building Tips For Restaurants

I recently spent some time in Seattle working for a well known restaurant down there. I was invited to work on site to not only get a feel for their business in person, but help generate some cool content to use as linkbait. The overall experience was rewarding and allowed me to build links for a niche I never really have before. The amount of unique link building options for a restaurant was an eye opener, and hopefully these tips...
