Best Internet Marketing Posts of 2008

Best Internet Marketing Posts of 2008

Today is my birthday, and I decided to give you all a gift that few of you have been highly anticipating for a few months now. My most popular post on this site — probably by far — was last year’s Best Internet Marketing Posts of 2007 compilation. I spent about 3 days (and nights) on it (without sleep) and I was quite happy with the turnout. This year, I began starting to write this compilation in the first week of December. The collection begins with posts that start in January of 2008 and have been collected and shared in the last 12 months. Like last year, I’ve grouped them into different categories and written short descriptions on each post. There’s no order to the posts; I’ve used my bookmarks and a variety of social sites and peer recommendations to create this list. I hope this year’s list surpasses last year’s. Let me know how I did in the comments. ;)

Here’s how this works: In the Internet Marketing Best Posts “series,” I take posts that are typically timeless — they’re not confined to a specific event or news occurrence — they’re valuable for the long haul in terms of Internet Marketing and creative strategy. Hopefully, you’ll see that these posts are still relevant in a few years down the road.

These posts range from beginner to advanced with a greater emphasis on the more intermediate posts. I’d argue that if you’re starting your Internet Marketing business with not much know-how, you should check out the 2007 posts; in fact, most may still find them relevant regardless of the skill level.

New for 2008: If your article is highlighted in this comprehensive post, we have badges for you! Feel free to link to this post with the top right hand image, which was contributed by David Mihm who specializes in Portland Web Design. Every post is a winner!

Search Engine Optimization (SEO):

Social Media: Generic Strategy:

Social Media: Strategy for Social Sites:

Twitter:

Sphinn:

  • Beginner’s Guide to Sphinn: Surely there are some of you out there who have never used Sphinn before, but if you are remotely interested in this post, you can imagine that half of the posts I put here were also submitted to Sphinn.? That said, join up and read this Problogger post for some rules of engagement.
  • Top 10 Signs You’re Spamming Sphinn gives you more insights into how to use social news sites properly.
  • Crappy MP3 Sites, Comment Spamming & Enough Already: Danny Sullivan rants about how there are “search marketers” trying to manipulate Sphinn (and other social news sites). He explores examples and shows how hard it is to be a moderator of a site like this. Hey, I hear you.
  • An Analysis of Sphinn: 175 Homepage Homeruns Dissected: This post shows you what people are loving on Sphinn.? It also somewhat correlates to the categories on this post since some topics just happen to be a lot more popular than others.

LinkedIn:

Digg:

  • How to Level the Playing Field with Digg: While I personally don’t like Digg anymore and find that it’s useless for marketers, Skellie think it’s still valuable. (I’d argue “rarely” nowadays.)
  • How I Became a Digg Power User with a 75% Popular Ratio: I got banned in October from Digg with a 67% popular ratio and 278 front page stories and offered very similar tips in 2007, but some people still want to use Digg for this kind of thing.? Personally, I think Digg will ban you when you get popular.? The guy who wrote this blog post speaks from the same kind of experience.

Wikipedia:

  • Using Wikipedia to Reveal Web Traffic Data: Jonathan Hochman writes a piece on how, when using Wikipedia, you can find out about how much traffic a top search ranking will send.
  • How to Overthrow a Wikipedia Result: This is a good tactic but you should use it in moderation!? Don’t get caught!
  • Wikipedia 101 for Marketing: The awesome Todd Defren explains how you can use Wikipedia to market your business.? But as many of you who have attended SEO conferences know, don’t do it from your company IP address or face the banhammer.
  • 3 Awesome Wikipedia Tools and How they Could be Useful: I’ve never really known of any real good Wikipedia tools except for WikiScanner until this post (and this post doesn’t even talk about that IP scanner program).? ? So there you have it — 4 tools for your Wikipedia enjoyment.
  • What to do When Your Company Wikipedia Page Goes Bad: The problem with editing your own company page when you work for the company is that there are moderation issues and biases.? So what can you do once someone adds bad content to that page?? Jessica Bowman tells you how to make the nasties “fade into the background.”

StumbleUpon:

Fark:

Facebook:

delicious:

Flickr:

  • How to Market on Flickr: While Flickr itself isn’t seen as a community that you would market to, you can find out how to become a respected community member AND market your services as well.
  • An Insider’s Guide to Marketing on Flickr: Rohit Bhargava gives some very detailed tips on how you can use Flickr to successfully market products.

FriendFeed:

  • FriendFeed Can Disrupt Search and Reshape Advertising: Steve Rubel offers his initial impressions of FriendFeed.
  • 25 Different Uses for FriendFeed: FriendFeed power users Michael Fruchter and Louis Gray team up (well, Mike posted the guest post on Louis’s blog) to share some tips on how you can get the most out of this service.? As an FYI, I LOVE FriendFeed (and as another FYI, I said the same about Twitter in 2007 and everyone joined up in 2008.? Just sayin’).? By the way, Louis has a ton of great posts on FriendFeed on his blog and this isn’t the only one.

Best of Techipedia 2008
I typically don’t put posts from my blog in the “Best Internet Marketing Posts of 2008″ list, but this year, since I’ve grown a considerable number of subscribers, I’ve decided to give new users the opportunity to read the two best posts without feeling that they need to dig through the archives.? Of course, if you don’t mind reading the other posts I’ve written, by all means, go ahead.? There’s some good stuff there that I’m not highlighting here (including two on FriendFeed, which is a great content discovery and community building tool which simply doesn’t get much love).

Thanks again to the Portland Web Design company for their awesome badges (and to Jill for the idea).? Also, thanks for all your contributions to this series.? Stay tuned for next year’s!

Badges: If you would like to use any alternative badges on your site, please choose one of the below and copy the corresponding text on your website:

    Tamar – Thanks for the roundup! So much here to absorb. I hopped over via Jason Falls’ Twitter – and was so happy to see my linking secrets post included here :) That post has been incredibly popular at my site, and 10 months later is still bringing in a steady stream of StumbleUpon traffic – goes to show you the power of social media tools.

    Thanks for taking the time to compile this list!

    Excellent resource. Thank you for posting — it’ll take us till 2010 to read through them all!

    I hadn’t seen Seth Godin’s post re: viral yet, so that (so far) has been the most interesting link in the list to me.

    I would love for “viral” to be redefined. It means something very specific, and most people say “viral” when they mean “organic” or “grassroots.” I think it’s been used so badly for so long, though, we may be stuck with what we’ve got. More ruminations about this over here:

    I am bookmarking, passing on by email and tweeting this post. Excellent work Tamar. It certainly shows one of the powerful uses of bookmarking – since you collected this information by bookmarking it. We assume you had to do quite a bit of editing too – thank you so much for the effort.

    May I add a request for 2009? It is hard to find good social media tips about MySpace. I have one client for which I have to use this platform (among others of course). http://myspace.com/singelringen It DOES drive traffic if your product appeals to the demographic that lives there. I can’t be the only one.

    Happy Birthday, Happy New Year and wishing you a prosperous, healthy 2009.

    Vlad, I’m not sure why I approved your comment since it’s not really relevant to the post at all nor do I even have the answer. I don’t even know competitions in the US. Might you ask via Twitter or some other channel that is a little more relevant? How is my post related to your inquiry at all?

    Juan, wow, in my 4 years of having this blog live, nobody has asked that. Best way to do this is to subscribe to the site via RSS and use the email option in Google Reader or the RSS reader of your choice. You would have gotten a daily digest if you subscribed to the blog via email as well.
