Pilgrim’s Picks for September 8



Happy Monday morning to you. I trust that you had a good weekend and weren’t bothered too much by any of the Hurricanes wreaking havoc lately. In Raleigh we had about 5-6" of rain but fortunately not much else.

Today’s Picks are ready for your perusal:

    Otilia – borderline? No, it’s w-a-y over the border line for me!

    A very interesting article on the wild west of SEO, Andy. I had not even heard of the term “widget bait” previously and personally think it is a neat concept.

    Google clearly take a different view but surely that still leaves it open to abuse by those who just want a quick hit of traffic and are not in for the long game.

    Quote of the article was “90% is in the middle”, which sums up how gray SEO is!

    This is so creepy. I was recently reading an article from Business Leader Magazine (http://businessleader.com/Index.aspx?page=ui.article&PID)about this company, that article led me to the website, from there I went to the pressroom link and found that the CEO of the company was the same guy that was featured on the cover of another magazine I read often, Opportunity World. I remembered seeing that article but didn’t pay it too much attention until now. I see that this search engine is buzzing all over the place. I guess I’m a little behind the curve because I’ve found that everyone I talk to about it seems to have already heard about it and many are already using it.
    Thanks for the pic, I’m gonna keep my eye on this one.

    Matt Cutts dreams, oh man I KID YOU NOT I really had this dream.

    The night before the Marketing Pilgrim Scholarship Contest winner was to be announced, I had a dream that I was on my way to a movie theater in Deep Cove, North Vancouver (5 minutes from my house. There is not really a theater there – aren’t dreams random? And of course, to announce the winner — of all the places in the world, you’d come to a dinky cinema North Van, right?)

    Okay, so I’m at the theater for the announcement but, you know, nature calls – so, when I get back the announcement has already been made. I missed the whole thing. Then Matt Cutts turns around and says, don’t worry – it was you.

    In that Wild West SEO one it mentioned widget spamming – what it is? – Like making free to use widgets with your link embedded and encrypted?

    Every time it is talked about serp quality never a lot on adsense quality. I would like someone from Google to address this someday. The main money making engine for Google is Adsense and “how good are they at this”?

    All the webmasters are biased with money is that also Google?
