Web Developers: Help Me Help You


A client's site is being completely overhauled by a new web dev agency from scratch because the existing agency has locked down the CMS as proprietary.

Social Bookmarking Strategies at SES New York


Last week I was a speaker at SES New York on a panel called "Bookmarking Strategies". I was tasked fairly specifically, to talk about the very basics of social bookmarking. On the panel with me were Todd Malicoat, Michael Gray and Neil Patel. Alex Bennert was moderator.It was a particularly niche topic for an entire session, but I was glad and appreciative that Danny Sullivan asked me to do a

More Digg Lameness


So, apparently Digg unbanned certain domains from having stories submitted but feedback I've been getting and direct observations show that any stories submitted from these allegedly non-banned sites are quickly "buried".Connected Internet shows how the "Digg mafia" buried a story within minutes from their site. Pronet Advertising found evidence of a Digg "bury brigade". It's all childish

Digg Un-bans Online Marketing Blog


Today I noticed on a trackback link from Pronet Advertising that Digg has decided to un-ban a number of domain names. Neil Patel's name is listed as the author of the blog post and he lists Online Marketing Blog at the top.

Online Marketing Blog Gets Hit with DOS


It has been an interesting Monday to say the least. Our main company blog, has been hit with a Denial of Service attack or something similar.

Dave Pasternack SEO Predictions in 2005


Singing the "SEO is dead" song is nothing new for Dave Pasternack, despite all the recent rounds of impotent cliches.
