Online Marketing Blog is very fortunate this week to have a special interview with Chris Sherman, Executive Editor at Search Engine Land and long time observer/analyst/practitioner/advocate in the search engine marketing industry. Chris has been a instrumental influence in the growth of the search marketing industry with his 10+ year old search consulting practice, past involvement with Search Engine Watch and Search Engine Strategies as well as his new role as Executive Editor at Search Engine Land, running the Search Marketing Now webcasts and helping to program SMX conferences.

Get Your ‘Add to Sphinn Button’ Here

Lee Odden on Jul 12th, 2007     Blogging

You can now add a Sphinn button to your site to let visitors quickly submit your post to Sphinn, the SEO Digg clone from Search Engine Land.

Here is the button: Sphinn

Feel free to download it and host it yourself. It also does measure up to Danny Sullivan’s button standards.

WordPress Code:
<a href="http://sphinn.com/submit?url=<?php echo get_permalink() ?>"><img src="http://www.toprankblog.com/downloads/sphinn.png" border="0" alt="Sphinn" title="Add to Sphinn"></a>

JavaScript Code:
<script type="text/javascript">
var URL = window.location.href;
document.write("<a href='http://sphinn.com/submit?url="+URL+"'><img src='http://www.toprankblog.com/downloads/sphinn.png' border='0' alt='Sphinn' title='Add to Sphinn'></a>")
</script>

I’ll be working on getting the Sphinn button into the social bookmark tool too in the upcoming week or so.

Danny Says Goodbye to Search Engine Watch

Lee Odden on Nov 30th, 2006     Marketing Industry News, Online Marketing

Danny Sullivan has posted a nice goodbye message over at Search Engine Watch. All  of the contributors will be going with Danny and Elisabeth Osmeloski will continue as Managing Editor.

It’s pretty amazing to think Danny is moving on but I guess that’s how things grow and evolve. Search Engine Land will be his new home for covering the search engine industry as of tomorrow.¬† You can read and leave comments over at the Search Engine Watch forums.

Post Turkey Day SEO News

Lee Odden on Nov 24th, 2006     Marketing Industry News, Online Marketing

I hadn’t noticed this earlier, but there’s been a full exodus of Search Engine Watch correspondents over to Search Engine Land. It will be interesting to see what Incisive does to fill that gap.

I had no idea Michael Gray was a fan of cooking (I am too!) and he does a nice rundown of the Thanksgiving feast he prepared yesterday along with photos.

More wisdom from Todd Malicoat comes our way ala Cluetrain Manifesto in the form of “The Stunt Train SEO Marketing Manifesto“.¬† Right on the money Todd!

With the conference last week, I missed posting my weekly list of SEO, social media and online PR blog links, so let’s start off the week with a nice list. As a reminder, these are blogs that I’ve either recently discovered or recently “re-discovered”.

WebProNews Blog – Fairly new and it’s about time! Mike, Chris and all the WPN gang are revving it up lately.
Web Ink Now – David Meerman Scott’s blog on public relations, marketing and blogging.
Social Media Group – Canadian business blog on social media and corporate blogging.
Natural Search Blog – One of Stephan Spencer’s blogs on SEO.
Abhilash – “Boutique SEO With a Little Brown Sugar”. A persistent SEO with a sense of humor if nothing else. Finally met Abhilash in Vegas last week.
Joe Dolson – Usability and web design wisdom.
Search Engine Land – Danny Sullivan’s new blog with Chris Sherman and Barry Schwartz.
Search Rank Blog – SEO goodness from David Wallace. We’ve both been in the SEO biz for what, a million years and we still have not met at a conference?
