Great write up on paid search inner workings.
Sitting at SMX in Scottsdale and using my twitter account I haven’t touched in years. Twitter allows for immediate communication and helps those like myself that are on the shy side of the fence. Conferences do lend themselves nicely for this communication, Austins SXSW conference is a prime example.
The first day of the conference has been good and lots of information about Facebooks Edgerank for ads. Looking forward to tomorrows speakers and hopefully I will make time for a roundup of the speakers and top takeaways. Dont hold your breath though as you can notice this blog is about as neglected as my Twitter account.
This is an example of an SEO company not being legit with its customers. Good listen even if its a bit old. Stay away from companies that wont tell you what they are doing exactly.
The sales rep mentions meta tags are secret sauce. Funny that this ‘secret’ is published for all to see on the websites that supposedly rank. Why not just be upfront, unless there is something to hide?
Does anyone have any experience with Outrank? If they can streamline the Local listing process for clients that may be worth the fees itself as many small business owners wont take the time to do so.
If you have questions about Outrank.com give them a call and chat directly, or read the SEO Scam list here and see how they defend themselves in public. I do not have any personal experience with them.

Here is the Zune playlist converting software, quick and easy.
Will try to have a walk through tonight.
A pretty good read over here re Adwords testing. Looking to expand a bit more into statistical validity on some ads.
Google is still using this to promote Adwords. Maybe a refresh is in order. Well scratch that, looks like the bakery has re-opened.
So I have been on the search for zip code data, specifically wanting to get info on population per zip so I can break it down into metro areas for a little project I am working on.
I stumbled across this free zip code database and it may be able to help out a bit. If anyone has ideas on how I can go about grouping all the metropolitan areas by zip and sorted by population that would be great and maybe I will even buy you a beer.
