I watched a pretty funny ustream broadcast last night about SEO and affiliate marketing with Streko and Sugarrae. For about 4 hours they laughed and drank and talked about a whole bunch of topics, but the key points I came away with are 1) Streko’s wife is out of his league, and 2) Sugarrae knows a hell of a lot about affiliate marketing.
But since it’s Thanksgiving morning and I don’t plan to launch any new affiliate marketing campaigns before I eat today, I was going to write a quick blog post just to demonstrate how to rank for a silly non-competitive term like SEO Thanksgiving. But I did some quick keyword research (i.e., I typed it into Google) and discovered a whole bunch of silly people already tried to rank for that term. Talk about highly targetted niche markets – who do you really think is going to search for SEO services on Thanksgiving, let alone use the term SEO Thanksgiving to do it? I wouldn’t want that client. He might jump ship next month as soon as he discovers the next guy that ranks for Christmas SEO.
OK, even I have to admit this post is so highly targeted to one specific kind of task that most readers won’t be interested in it at all. But since I had to write this code over the weekend, I decided I might as well share it with someone. If you’re working on the .NET platform and you want to upload your products database to Google Base in an XML feed, than this code is for you!
Before I get technical, I’ll explain why you might want to do this.
Well, it’s my birthday today and I just found out T-Pain (featuring DJ Khaled) gives a shout out to me in his new song Karaoke right on the second line of the song! It’s on his album Thr33 Ringz which just dropped last week. Nothing says “You’ve Arrived” better than this — thanks for the props, T-Pain! Read More …
I decided it was about time for another code update, and since there are plenty of SEO tips for PHP hackers and Wordpress users, I’m going to help out the ASP.NET programmers out there still in the dark about SEO problems with their code. The concept is useful for anyone; but the code is specifically for a function I programmed in VB.NET.
