761: new post   Celebrities Don't Always Appear To Help Advertising Effectiveness
As the most significant event in advertising grows nearer, it will be interesting to see how many brands enlist the endorsement services of celebrities during the Super Bowl.[br][br]After all, popular wisdom asserts that getting a celebrity endorsement is a tried-and-true, simple-to-implement way to maximize advertising effectiveness. Sure, it's expensive, but celebrities always yield stronger ties with viewers and, ultimately, greater sales, right?[br][br]Wrong. Over the course of last year, time and time again we observed incredibly low effectiveness scores of TV ads starring celebrities. From Tiger Woods to Donald Trump, we found that with rare exception, celebrity endorsements were largely ineffective and failed to yield the benefits popular wisdom promises. (-subscription required)

762: new post   DMOZ Game Plan
The state of DMOZ: "I need to figure out how to get a few new websites into DMOZ. About 5 years ago I created a random site and submitted it to DMOZ and was accepted. Since that time I've not touched the site but it has enjoyed #1 rankings ever since. Many of my other sites have not seen anything close to that success. Only thing I can think to attribute it to - is DMOZ. [br][br]So a few questions: [br][br]1. Is it just me or is DMOZ still *very* important? [br][br]2. Is DMOZ still being maintained? [br][br]3. Should I submit brand new sites, or wait for them to age and rank in the SEs a bit first? [br][br]4. Any other strategy I should adhere to? [br][br]5. Anything else out there working these days like DMOZ (did)?" (-subscription required)

"Years ago a client made me an offer to sell his adspace for a commission. I did so, and during this time I also provided other web-related services to him. Now I'd like to move on to pursue my own projects, but the client and I disagree over further compensation to me for the ad sales. " - (subscription required)

768: new post   Thread of Year Nominee : SEO Benefits from Affiliate Links
There are several ways that a site can receive SEO benefits from affiliate links. This basically boils down to being another "flavor" of URL canonicalizatoin issues. And as such the same techniques can be used to fix the issue.
Also Google cannot always tell what is/is not an affiliate link... nor do they always care or "try" to detect them. I think people are more paranoid than they need to be about this....couple of ideas that you might want to consider to eliminate the dup content and split link juice issues caused by the canonicalization problems associated with affiliate links: (-subscription required)

Until Google comes along and re-indexes Page 1, and finds and indexes Page 2, all your visitors arriving at Page 1 after clicking in SERPs won't find the content they were expecting. It's no longer on that page number."

"I wanted a user generated content model for one of my sites. Basically a "ask an expert" where visitors ask questions which are then answered by other visitors. Not only does this generate UGC, but it also does some really *nice* ugc - titles of posts like 'how do I...' which are great search bait." (-subscription required)
