Pilgrim’s Picks for October 3
Today was the first post-summer day where my office felt a little "chilly." I’m hoping for a quick rebound in temperatures. While I go outside and look for the sun, you can enjoy these Picks.
- Hackers are keeping a close eye on Google Trends–it’s helping them build fake blogs on popular topics.
- Don’t be like Rand Fishkin–who once picked RandFish as his social profile name, and now regrets it. Do however, follow his awesome advice for branding your company (or self) with social media.
- First Google removed the handy dictionary links, now SEOs are worried that Google no longer suggests submitting your site to a directory.
- A one-man blog just sold for $15 million! $15,000,000! I’ll start the bidding for Marketing Pilgrim at $5,000,000!
