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.

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.

Please don’t embrace video – at least for a few years. Until we have much better video content indexing you can’t do lists like this in video that can quickly be scanned, sliced, and diced into what you want to read and don’t want. Video, in terms of information dissemination, often sucks, and for me it’s all about the info. Reply Lyndon Antcliff December 26, 2007 at 1:56 pm This is such an annoying post.

Reply Michael December 26, 2007 at 4:09 pm Including this link = is this a joke? You include this among many other worthy posts. The list as a whole is great: this item has absolutely no place on this list. Missed major sites, included absolutely no analysis of any of them except parroting their marketing speak. This item has no place on this fine list. Social Networking: Ages 20-60 and Up (Muhammad Saleem): Did you know that the older folk also embrace social networking? What are the most popular sites in these age groups? Reply TheMadHat December 26, 2007 at 4:10 pm WOW! I nominate this as the best post of all time… Great work Tamar, that must have taken forever. Reply Tamar Weinberg December 26, 2007 at 4:21 pm Hey Michael, it’s good to know that there’s someone there who has a differing opinion. Besides arguing that the link doesn’t belong there, can you talk about the major sites that are missed? That list, from my review, didn’t intend to be comprehensive at all, but it certainly shows that social media goes beyond the simple age groups that many people envision. Social media is not only about the younger demographic; there’s a lot more to it and the point was that there are other sites that accommodate other age groups.

Reply shariha March 5, 2008 at 1:26 pm Internet Marketing: A ringside view: If your business involves products or services spread across the globe or even within a region, internet marketing can be effective in showcasing your product/service to the discerning buyer. The first step towards a successful internet marketing campaign would be building a suitable web-site. Your web-site should be simple but elegant looking. Crisp and precise presentation often scores over too many colors, too many promises or in short too much of anything. The prospective customers would be looking for valuable information that he can instantaneously use. Great web sites often offer some freebies like music downloads, software downloads, computer games, graphics etc. to attract customers. So if the freebies you offer are attractive enough for the target customer profile, the traffic to your site will also rise rapidly. Internet marketing is indeed a long drawn process where you first build a web-site and then nurture it through all its stages till you can figure at the top of the search engine results. Search Engine optimization and link building are the two most popular methods to improve the ranking of your web-site. Internet marketing cannot ignore these tools even though they come at a hefty price. Enter any search string into the most popular search engines, and you will stumble upon several hundred, if not thousand pages of information relating to that subject. People searching for information tend to look at the first few web-sites that come up from the search result. Chances are that the information they sought would be contained in those pages. Therefore, most searches do not get beyond the first page of the results. Imagine if your web-site figures in the 20th or 21st page, the traffic it can generate for you would be only closer to zero. This makes search engine optimization relevant to make your web-site work for you. What are the main attributes of search engine optimization? Keywords and link building; these are the two major attributes that would help you to optimize your web-site for the search engines. Keywords are the possible search strings that a user will enter into the search counter. For example, someone looking for a Home Theatre can use terms like “Electronic product manufacturers&# or “Theatre Equipment dealers&# or “Home Theatre manufacturers&# or even “where can I buy a Home Theatre&#. Though all these search strings have a commonality, they are also distinct. Therefore, a web-site representing Home theatre should have all these phrases somewhere in their content, preferably in the first page and right on top. Search Engines crawl through several thousand pages at lightning speed and return with the optimal results. Keywords and key phrases should be coined by experts to get the best results. Link building is another important aspect of internet marketing. Most popular search engines will look at the number of links that your web-site has to other web-sites and blogs. If the number of links is high, it indicates the popularity of your web-site and hence get ranked at the top. Article marketing  There are several article banks which will accept your submissions and then feed to People look for information on various topics. So, if you are in the business of solar energy, you can create or hire people to write articles on solar energy, submit to the article banks, with a link to your web-site. This will induce the visitor to look at your site and when the number of articles is large, the number of visits to your web site will also rise in proportion. Article marketing is yet another tool to lead you to success in internet marketing. Whatever your business we at [thanks for the link, Shariha, and for putting the effort into this article, but I dont appreciate the spam drop] can help you design, maintain and sustain your business website.
