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.
Lots of people are aware that there was a problem over the weekend with co-author requests being sent out, and some forced adding as authors to communities.
It was a long weekend in the US, but it seems the MyBlogLog team have already fixed it, rolled back any changes, and hopefully it won’t happen again.
I have actually been planning to write an article on social proof with widgets for some time. Farkfan in a recent comment on my Clickbank Disclosure post was questioning my positioning of subscription boxes in the primary real estate on the top of my page and part of my response included.
There is a good reason I include a quote from Dane Morgan on my about page. It is not just because it was complementary, but because I know he is a very smart cookie, that has been around the block a few times with all kinds of affiliate marketing. He is vastly more experienced than I am.
I hate to say it guys, but all these wishy washy wish lists that appeared today really don’t give MyBlogLog the credit they truly deserve, or really explore the potential of MyBlogLog. Andy Beal has a few useful ideas. Shoemoney also has a list, but I am not going to link to him as he prefers invective to cover up his spamming activities. In fact Shoemoney’s list seems to be an attempt to control the problems his community marketing tactics initially encouraged.
Darren Rouse gets talked about a lot in the blogosphere, and for good reason. He writes quality articles and is a nice helpful guy.
Darren Rouse Logs
Someone was checking results for Darren on Yahoo. How do I know? I spotted it in my MyBlogLog stats that they had clicked through.
I am mentioning MyBlogLog a lot these days, but there are reasons for this
- A large proportion of my readership are using it.
- A large number are still not using it (they are missing out)
I love how his blog post ends
If Yahoo/MyBlogLog is reading this, these tools would be great to implement as a part MyBlogLog. All we ask is for 1% of your acquisition price or a free trip to Yahoo headquarters.
