On Are SEO's Destroying SEO?

Thank you for your feedback Daniel. You make some great points. That's why I stated that SEO will never die but will evolve and for those that don't jump on the train will lose out.

On Liiiiinks, Liiiiinks: Attack of the SEO Zombies!

Thank you Ajay for reading my post and for your comment. I agree and hopefully Google will curbe their lust for PPC revenue for the sake of penalizing these blood suckers.

On #Oscars2014: The Twitter Story [INFOGRAPHIC]

This is a great article, very informative and IMO has the right attitude towards the epic selfie that broke Twitter! I just got done commenting on this article "Ad-Spamming Redux: Ellen's Samsung Oscars Narcissistic Selfie".

On Ad-Spamming Redux: Ellen's Samsung Oscars Narcissistic Selfie

I'm happy that Ellen did what she did with the epic selfie that broke Twitter. No matter how deep you want to analyze what happen, why and how; it was still epic and it was fair game to defeat Obama's record. I also loved that she ordered pizzas from a real local pizza restaurant and passed out slices during the most awkward time to eat pizza. I think Ellen and the Oscars gave a bump of support to the digital marketing arena and I'm grateful for it. Points I think that can be taken away from this are;

  • As a business, don't be caught without a Twitter account or any of the major social networks (i.e. Facebook, LinkedIn and or Pinterest etc...) Just imagine if  didn't actually have a Twitter account.
  • As an online marketer, always be prepared to cover events that can boost your sphere of influence online.
  • Have access to a popular blog to be able to quickly publish content about the event being covered. Danny's great example! (Google gives authority to those who publish content sonner than everyome else)
  • Don't be jealous of other people viral content.
  • Make yourself availbable to be part of something going viral or an epic moment.

I hope Ellen started a couple of new trends that inspire others to think outside the box and capitalize moments to be part of something epic.

My forecast of upcoming epic selfies:

  • Sporting event selfies; NBA Campionship, NHL Stanley Cup, etc...
  • Political selfies; Whitehouse selfies, Congress selfies, Campaign selfies, etc...
  • Internet Marketing selfies; Matt Cutts at conferences, other conferences, etc...
  • Sitcom selfies; Big Bang Theory selfie, The Voice selfie, Two and Half Men selfie, etc...
  • Music industry selfies; Grammy selfie, CMA selfie, etc...
