So many good posts/articles this week … I was gonna do one of these a few nights ago, but never got to it.
Anything that helps me think more creatively about something that can be incredibly monotonous is a Good Thing. That’s probably why I liked Tom Clitchlow’s guest post on the Link Building Blog: 5 crafty outside the box link-building tricks & tips.
Here are a couple good business blogging posts from the past week:
- Using Blogs to Market Your Business by Chris Brown, and
- How are Blogs and Brands Related from Drew McLellan
I often write about the first four items in this article, but I think #5 is one that gets overlooked a lot — not just by me, but also by small business owners. You’ll have to read The Top 5 Small Business Marketing Tips for Budget-Minded Business Owners to know what on earth I’m talking about. 🙂
Even if you don’t get the Fox Sports Net reference, you’ll like Stoney D. giving away one of his SEO playbooks in The Best Damn On-Page Optimization Process Checklist, Period.
Lee Odden offers a good thought piece on why SEO is not a short-term, “one and done” effort: Advantages of Ongoing SEO Consulting.
This was a good week for social media/marketing discussion and articles. Here are the ones I bookmarked:
- But What If They Say Something Bad? – Jennifer Laycock
- Why Social Media Belongs In Your Internet Marketing Campaign – Lisa Barone
- Why Facebook is Not a Viable Marketing Platform – Muhammad Saleem
- List of Video Sharing Sites and Impact of Video Marketing – Joe Whyte
Not done yet … stay with me here. Chris Silver Smith talks about using Google’s Webmaster Central to find Quality Scores for Natural Search Optimization.
And though I don’t cover PPC much here, the Google AdWords blog answers a common question: Not seeing your ad on Google.com?
That’s all for this week – have a good weekend!
