ReviewMe have just launched their affiliate program, I am actually in 2 minds about it but will be displaying the badge in a prominent position for a few weeks in my header to see how things go.
Do you worry about the danger of giving a 3rd party service control over the most important part of your blogging business – your subscribers?
Up until today there were only 2 realistic alternatives to retain some control over your RSS subscribers while using Feedburner for collecting stats.
I am sure a few other people might have spotted this already in their WordPress console today. I am sure it is a bug that is going to be cleared up rapidly.
I am actually not going to tell you much about this, other than it is totally legitimate and could act as a source of high quality links and trafffic… the type who not only might click through to read what you say, but also write about it.
It is slightly old school, but not talked about, in fact most people just talk about doing this in reverse, but both ways can be effective. Take a look at this PR Stunt.
I have never used Moveable Type as a blogging platform. I found WordPress to be better than Blogger in many ways, and moved a large number of my sites over to WordPress (but only on my own domains). That being said, I am frequently asked what are the differences between WordPress and Moveable Type, especially for a business blogger who might experience high traffic load.
This plugin retroactively places the rel=”nofollow” tag on all links to Shoemoney.com – you don’t have to modify any links manually, and it is easy to switch off should you feel in the future that the site no longer contains offensive material.
This seems to be a growing trend, and so many bloggers are falling for the linkbait, poorly researched content, and unethical marketing practices.
Reactionary development of computer products and services can prove to be a disaster both for development cycles and the feature set of a product. An extremely careful balance has to be achieved between supporting the wishes of hardcore supporters of a product, and achieving core goals and maintaining a development schedule.
So Shoe got banned from MyBlogLog and now there is some kind of outcry from people wanting him reinstated. It is actually a great way to grab attention – I think every one of his “exploit” posts has gained more Diggs than the original announcement of the Yahoo MyBlogLog acquisition on the MyBlogLog blog.
ReviewMe, the pay for review service initially stated that they were going to be updating site information on a monthly basis. As many people might have noticed they didn’t quite manage that, in fact it has been over 2 months since my first, and only review for them, of Aaron’s Search Engine Glossary. (I still have to make an affiliate site from his content).
