How a Pingback Led Me to Guy Kawasaki

Here’s an example of viral traffic generation.

I was reading Shoemoney’s post on Las Vegas Pubcon 2006 and in his comments, I see the following:

Shoemoney Pingback

That was a pingback from Lee Odden blog.

Lee is CEO of TopRank Online Marketing and has a widely read, high traffic, high PR blog.

It caught my eye like Seth Godin’s archetypal “Purple Cow” (which stands out from the herd of brown cows).

“Nice Fellow” is seldom a term used to refer to Shoemoney.

I’m used to people refer to Jeremy as the SEM specialist or the Ringtone King, but “Nice Fellow” really stuck out for me.

I just had to read Lee’s post: Pubcon Day .05.

It was a succinct summary of the goings on at Las Vegas PubCon and while reading Lee’s post, the following caught my eye:

TopRank blog

In the top right corner, Lee’s got a post entitled “Guy Kawasaki Needs Your Links

[I'm not exactly sure why Guy feels he needs to break into Technorati's top 10 because I'd prioritize list building over SEO/traffic.]

Lee does an excellent job of summarizing Guy’s presentation, though it’s similar to other ‘Art of the Start’ presentations he’s given. [Like i've posted at: Guy Kawasaki Art of the Start. Guy's almost pathologically famous for his 'I've got 10 points' opening to his talks]
But I liked the relevance of Lee’s link because I just ordered a copy of Guy’s book “The Art of the Start“.

And while I’m at Guy’s blog, I also checked out his post: The 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint, which is also relevant for those who prepare and present lots of presentations [like my wife, whom I've just emailed the link.]

And she’s been reading my copies of Guy’s “Selling the Dream” and “Rules for Revolutionaries” because she’s involved in a hush-hush project at work.

The point of all this?

Don’t discount the value of the humble trackback or pingback.

It can bring you around the blogging world and come back with a load of traffic.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your
    article seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
    Many thanks

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what
    youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you
    could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    The book serves as Snetsinger’s private marketing books kindle journal chronicling his journey through his first year
    and a half in the network marketing books on the new marketing world and business.
    So that is why I said that there are too many network marketing books out there which makes it
    quite difficult for the reader to choose one and make it their
    favourite. They deliver the core mindsets for being successful in network marketing
    books, Poe sought after the biggest names in the industry to find out a compatible
    system to start with.

    Even with a cooler, you have to worry about foods that
    spoil easily, so no milk and no raw meat (unless you plan on eating them right away).
    Any member of management can simply step in and join the workout with any of the teams to promote their relationships
    with employees while working on their own fitness and demonstrating, by example, how important this is.
    These rules are designed to build strong, supportive teams and team
    members. You may have to spend a few nights away from even basic facilities like
    power. You should have a nice reward and a bit of a reputation boost with the NCR.
    Mind that all children are different and thus they all have
    different needs to consider. The long-term courses have an increased recognition for their
    capability to help disobedient teens develop better behavior at homes and schools.
    Visiting a ghost town can be an unusual day trip, with little to no cost involved.

    Cost effectiveness is another huge benefit of being part of
    a boot camp. This film was centered around the preparation and serving of French food.

    The older you get, the more likely it is that you’ll start to experience
    thinning and hair loss. Zinc absorption and vitamin C intake could be synergistic.
    Because of this, you need to clean your hairs and make
    them tidy at all the times.
