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!
