Search Engine Watch Forums

“…the real fun starts when people resort to daisy wheeling clickbots across a wide range of unrelated physical servers and IP blocks possibly spread over several countries and continents.”

PPC [Pay Per Click” And Affiliate Marketing, Will It Last?
High Rankings Forum

“We all know that sight – you type in ‘buy widget’ and wham up come 4 Ebay affiliates on the right, and maybe 2 of another affiliate, and maybe if you’re lucky 2 unaffiliated links. Surely this is not what Google wants? Is it relevant if you type in ‘buy TV’ and 5 eBay links come up on the right?”

Press Releases for Link Development
Webmaster World

“I have just been looking at a popular PR [press release” service to submit my press release with a hope that I can get some nice links to a site. I understand that editors may link to my site from news items. These sites do not take html, just plain text, so am I correct in thinking I just add the URL to the contact information and mention it in a paragraph of copy?”

MS Search “Could” Include User’s Meta-data

Webmaster World

“I am wondering if it’s a good idea to use Google’s adwords optimization team to improve our campaigns? Any pros or cons?”

Yahoo Advertising on Google
Digital Point Forums

“…Yahoo paying 25 cents at the chance to pull a Google user over to Yahoo for good is well worth the quarter. Adding to that, Yahoo also has dozens of services that Google doesn’t provide (hosting for businesses- their main adword, for example.)”

Marketing Tactics with Shopping Search Engines
Search Engine Watch Forums

“If you’re selling products online, you’re missing a huge opportunity if you’re not working with the increasingly popular shopping search engines like, Froogle, BizRate and others.”
