I especially like the Link Building Chart. Well done.

Aaron you are such a pessimist, all Wired wants to do is to get link bait to rank #1 for "Crazy Goodness". You actually believe a Tech magazine is all about sales. Such nonsense :). And the sad part is the article is so basic and the news is so old.

Woo, I just got giddy. Aaron Wall linked to something I helped write/create. Aaron-freakin'-Wall!

And I'm not being a smart ass - that is so cool to me, being as though you're such a dang celebrity in the SEO/Internet Marketing World. Seriously, when I started getting into SEO a little over a year ago, yours was one of the first blogs I started reading...and your glossary was my best friend for those first few weeks. Thanks for doing your part to help educate people in the world of Internet Marketing and SEO.

Thanks for giving a shout out about the Link Building poster...I'm sure I missed some good strategies, but hey, don't wanna give everything away!

Thanks for the link to the Google click data. I also like this reasoning behind the data - http://seoblackhat.com/2008/02/27/why-comscore-google-clicks-flat/

Great Geosign article.

March 11, 2008 - 6:42pm

For the moment, Nye and Geosign were still a step ahead. Instead of buying ads and keywords from Google, Geosign had always purchased keywords from the search engine company and directed the traffic to sites filled with ads from rival Yahoo! That meant Google was receiving millions of dollars from Geosign for access to its keywords, but didn't know where the traffic was directed. Given the amount of money flowing to Google, most in Geosign thought the search engine would turn a blind eye.

Isn't that technically inaccurate? Google surely knows where it's sold keyword traffic is going to...

The reporter was trying to write a good story while making it sound like there was real business strategy behind GeoSign. Honestly it was more lucky timing than anything.
