♥Daily SEO copywriting candy: February 12, 2009♥

hearts

It’s almost Friday…and it’s almost Valentine’s Day! Now I know that there are mixed feelings among the masses (and by masses I mean single vs. couples). But I say we should all take a moment to celebrate no matter what our relationship status. C’mon now, it’s February and there isn’t much else going on, so it’s a good excuse to eat chocolate and have a few well-deserved cocktails. Indulge, you’ve earned it!

And now for your daily SEO copywriting candy:

  • Building new content pays…but how much? Is it social media? Is it a blog site? Is it a pyramid scheme? I’m not entirely sure yet, but a friend recently sent me an invitation to MyLot, which claims to reward its users monetarily. Sounds simple enough, but if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is, right? Tell me what you think, I’m curious to hear what others have to say.
  • “It’s a fun time to be a writer,” according to Kevin Ryan of Search Engine Watch. In his recent article, Top 5 SEM Industry Frustrations, Ryan says, “Search marketing is up; the rest of the world is down.” Does that mean that the declining economic state of America is actually helping the search marketing industry? Does that sound bass-ackwards to you?
  • Sex sells! Well of course it does ♥ Read how British lingerie maker Agent Provocateur, through agency StrawberryFrog, has been using Twitter, social media, blogging and Web vids to promote frilly under-things in time for Valentine’s Day.
