Yesterday I had the fun challenge of dealing with this blog being hacked. I live for challenges.
I was greeted with a nice message from Firefox in the morning

The relationships you can build in blogging are often more valuable than you can allocate a monetary value.
I have just been joking a little with Jack Humphrey on twitter about outranking him for his own product.. yet again, and toying with the idea of making it a double listing.
The first thing Jack did when he read my post was promote it to his Twitter followers.
I spent the better part of a week and a few hundred dollars ($300-$400) on various WordPress sales letter and affiliate themes – I came to the conclusion that they weren’t something I would use.
Whilst the test I performed over the last few days isn’t ideal, recently, just for a few days I actually switched off my email subscriptions.
Email subscriptions has never accounted for the largest percentage of my subscribers, but I have always recognised them among my most responsive readers. I assure you the decision wasn’t taken lightly, especially with a number of major launches to write about which were highly targeted to my core audience.
What a difference 24 hours make.
A few days ago I was honestly prepared to rip a product to shreds. It wasn’t that it was a bad product, but it wasn’t as well prepared as it should have been, and from what I can tell it was due to an honest communication error between a well respected online marketer and his programming team.

Over a year ago I questioned the use of tagging on WordPress.com to spread link equity around as “a rising tide”.
If you use similar tags to a high profile blogger, it can help with faster indexing and rankings, at least from what I have observed.
I have learnt a huge amount from Ken Evoy over the years, he provides some of the best free ebooks to learn about affiliate marketing and pre-selling ever written.
His SiteBuildIt system has created many successful online businesses and was doing this long before WordPress became popular.
