Excerpt: I only have ~4000 links from link baiting over the last 3 months.  That's.  Not.  Enough!  I'm a link whore.  I'd sell my soul for a link if it had enough link juice.  I'd sell my body too, but I'm a bit out of shape right now.  Since I'm nice, and I don't generally post the same boring stuff that many of the other SEM blogs post (not yours, of course) … :) How about adding me a link?  When I see 10 new links I'll resume my posting.Until then — I'm on vacation (mentally) in Fiji.  Here's a picture…

Excerpt: We all have a mischievous side.  I know I do.  And in that vein, I have a great idea for a PubCon or SES segment.  I'd appreciate some feedback in the form of comments if you'd like to see such a segment.  Then I can approach Danny Sullivan or Brett Tabke with the idea:Title: "Understanding Black Hat SEO: Protecting Yourself From Black Hat Vulnerabilities"The segment would cover the basic black hatter's psyche, and what he's after.  I'd go through the list of common tactics used, and procedures for auditing your application for such vulnerabilities.  Then I'd explain how to solve…

Excerpt: If you're using a newsreader, you may notice that I now have a set of social bookmarking icons at the bottom of every blog post.  It looks like this in Google Reader: The rel="nofollow" I have on them is more than a bit unnecessary, but I forgot to remove it, and what the hey, it still validates using FeedValidator!Anyway, it's trivial to add.  In WordPress, the most obvious way is to edit the "wp-rss.php," "wp-rss2.php," "wp-atom.php," and "wp-rdf.php" files the same way you would do it in HTML.  Voila!Note: This change was suggested by someone to me, but I don't have…

Excerpt: I'm a geek.  Based on the content of this blog, many of my readers are too.  But some of you just may have seen a woman at some point.  If you have, you have likely been rejected, but don't understand what she means.  This handy guide will put rejection into terms we can all understand — HTTP Response codes.  SEOs should especially appreciate these.  Implementation via PHP. Note: These are all real.  I didn't make them up!header("HTTP/1.0 306 (Unused)"); "I'm a virgin."header("HTTP/1.0 402 Payment Required"); "I'm from Craigslist."header("HTTP/1.0 403 Forbidden");"I'm Catholic." header("HTTP/1.0 303 See Other");"Maybe we should see other people."header("HTTP/1.0…

Excerpt: Today I ordered my lunch online.  When I hit "confirm," I got a random error to the effect of "your email address doesn't exist."  It then proceeded to blow up.  This is definately poor programming, but it does highlight another issue: Network Solutions' "managed" DNS totally sucks.  And don't forget that any bad DNS can be another weak link in your business. I've seen it go down for hours at a time.  The domains used for my mail server don't use their DNS, but another email address I use does.  It isn't my choice. So if you want a…

Excerpt: The web site for the September SEO site clinic has been selected!  I will be reviewing the site www.pixellogo.com, a design firm that offers various other template design material.  This time, there are some architectural issues.  Some are interesting and along the theme of my upcoming book, http://www.amazon.com/Professional-Search-Engine-Optimization-PHP/dp/0470100923/.  This will be in addition to my hackneyed recommendations of blogs and more content.  The in-depth report will be done within the next few weeks.  I will also offer October's invitation at that time.

Excerpt: The 2nd-biggest poker company, PokerStars, asserts that Poker is not restricted by the new unexpected gambling ban.  This recent ban sent gambling-related internet stocks diving, and the search engine marketers making money as poker affiliates were also reeling, as the bill would even make linking to gambling-related material illegal. PokerStars, however, run by the Israeli Scheinberg family, has a different point of view:"These provisions do not alter the U.S. legal situation with respect to online poker," privately-owned PokerStars said in a statement."Our business continues as before, open to players worldwide including the U.S.," it added. "You may play on our…

Excerpt: I'm very surprised that nobody mentioned that NameWinner, the expired domain snapping service of Dotster has closed shop on Wed., October 11, 2006.  They say:We are pleased to announce that domain names previously available for bidding on NameWinner are now available on SnapNames.com. We have partnered with SnapNames to auction Dotster's expiring domains. This change allows us to focus our efforts on building the best domain monetization system for our customers. We are days away from the launch of the new RevenueDirect domain monetization system. They are now concentrating on another product that monetizes domains with landing pages — RevenueDirect. …
