Internet Marketing and Better Backlinks - Different? Better?


Blogging Underground and Facebook

Facebook is great but I must say I regularly have moments where I go – “huh – what is up with that?”

OK, so I admit it. I got caught in this confusing merry go round of a mess trying to get what I would call a “vanity URL” for my Blogging Underground fan page at Facebook. You know a short easy to remember URL (web address).

I already had one for my “personal page” at Facebook and that all made perfect sense:

But what about the business page aka fan page I created for Blogging Underground? It was a long-ass URL that no one would remember.

I wanted to brand my Facebook Blogging Underground “fan page”.

I wanted that URL to be short and sweet too…

Well, I finally figured it out and I now have the URL on Facebook that I have wanted.

Now, I like to think I am pretty sharp – but hey – I’m a busy guy – so I feel like Facebook really gave me a runaround on this whole facebook web address thing and it took me longer than it should have. (continued – read more of this article…)

The Power of Digg and Video

The power of Digg.com is undeniable!

Do you want to make a lot of money???

Here is an idea for you. It’s not original. I simply analyzed a site that is kicking butt.

CSPANJUNKIE can barely serve pages it is getting so much traffic.

So how can we do it???

Make a topical site and put topical content in videos you post on youtube with your web address on the screen.

This site cspanjunkie.org does nothing more than record tv and post videos on their site and youtube (maybe other places too). They record video from CSPAN, Bill Maher etc.

Then they post on youtube and use DIGG to get the word out

In this case they recorded Bill Maher from his HBO show Real Time.

They posted this video on youtube and listed it on DIGG and now the sucker has 5,445 diggs and 132,702 plays on youtube which pimps their url predominantly on the video screen.

www.cspanjunkie.org

Their site barely came up. (continued – read more of this article…)

Social Bookmarking Wish List! I need your tips!

Social Bookmarking Wish List – I need your tips, comments and suggestions! 

Hi everyone! I need your help!

I am in the process of developing a collaborative software application to help AU members and Article Marketing Newsletter subscribers to easily help each other out with bookmarks and links at the best web 2.0 sites. It will include a rewards system!

The application will be available for free to both Article Underground members and Article Marketing Newsletter subscribers.

As you may already know, Article Underground members have had a collaborative bookmarking section in the private AU members forum, and have been helping each othr with links and bookmarks. But we want to take it a step further and really make it easy for everyone to get as active as possible!

The idea is to reward those that help others the most. That way everyone has an incentive to make an effort to bookmark and link each other!

What I need your help with is ideas on how to make this work the best it can! I also want your suggestions on the best places we need to help automate the linking/bookmarking process.

What sites should we include? What features would you like?
