Links.

SEO is tricky. I deliver elements of SEO for a variety of clients, without any formal training or instruction I always feel like I’m missing something. There are so many black hat tricks, “experts” who guarantee page rank and frequent changes by search engines its hard to keep track of what works and what is a waste of time. Which is why I really appreciate it when someone comes along and breaks it down as succiently as @CorreyCreed. It really is as simple as it sounds.

This presentation by Corey Creed is a perfect breakdown of link building.



SEO is complex and it takes well though out strategy, metrics and a lot of time, but it is not as mysterious as some make it out to be.

    Back from a busy week and a vacation…apparently I missed a lot! 

    First there was the Motrin Mom scandal in Twitterville summarized very nicely by AdAge

    Jerry Yang left Yahoo…do you think he actually used rpoper grammer on this employee memo? (Hint: No)

    Crazy debates happening regarding the automotive industry’s request for money from the government. Congress went crazy today….if they fail there will be a lot of hurting agencies.

    Wondering who is getting laid off and what companies are failing? Check out FuckedStartUps.com which is almost as much fun as the Technocrati dead pool of startups. 

    I’ve recently learned to love Hulu and Yidio…Hulu now becoming big competion to YouTube.

    No more ValleyWag?? Ugh its not like PerezHilton is going to start covering the Silicon Valley.
