I am now in Canada! This is me on my new patio in Toronto.
The easiest way to get a mention on SEOish is to give me a Tshirt. Sad but true.
For example, when Acquisio gave me one of their now famous “I hate doing this shit” t-shirts, I knew that for damn sure I would be checking them out and giving them some link love. T-shirts are great. You know how after a conference you are hazy and confused after all the drinking, information overload, and meeting 12,000 people?
Well T-shirts serve as absolute reminders of something. They are right there in my bag and I can see them and touch them. I am dumb, I require such simplicity. I don’t want to have to remember a products web page, I want a t-shirt with that address on there.
Now, even if you don’t give me a tshirt, you can still get some SEOish link love. Lisa from SEO Chicks didn’t give me a t-shirt. But she rocks and so does her blog where she has conveniently gathered together all the smart search hotties in one easy to find place. The new addition of some familiar faces over there pleases me to no end.
(Hi Dewitt! Hi Rebecca!)
If anyone wants to give me a tshirt, I will link to them. Pretty simple, no? I am thinking of starting an SEO directory that consists solely of companies that have provided me a t-shirt.
Rhea has a new blog that I wanted to mention, even though she has not provided me with a t-shirt.
Barry Schwartz gets a bubble which is about neato as can be and he also mentions a very very interesting article about how 25 percent of search queries in Google are new and so longtail is super important and search is hard to do… awww poor Google.
Didn’t I already explain this whole thing using midgets and recycling?
MarketingPilgrim continues working on weekends to tell us about the search strategies event in New Zealand. The part that stuck out in my brain is that the event was 40 percent women, which means I will probably be covering this event next time because New Zealand women (Kiwis) often look like this.
