Digital Chinese Take Out for the Expat's SoulPosts RSS Comments RSS



I started an Search Engine Optimization (SEO) series a few months back and then abandoned the effort: Feedback from regular readers, most of them blogless and not looking to adopt, read, “I’m bored senseless!” It seems that only members of the China shoe-money society really read things and then they pissed and moaned: “It’s too simple,” or “Explain how to put an image in my post that doesn’t blow out my sidebar” were some of the two emailed questions….And then there was the uproar created by comments on a blog that used my posts to generate traffic by calling Fili and I “Greedy Superficial Bloggers” for discussing Search Engine Optimization (SEO) methods on our sites. It even got people taking sides and nearly cyber-rioting before he kind-of admitted it was just a scam meant to coax more readers to his site. But, I digress…

One of the deservedly best-loved sites on the planet is Post Secret. The trouble with being public and popular is that you are open to spoof. (Dear Sinocidal, I am still waiting for next April 1st….

The picture above was blatantly ripped off a very funny parody of Post Secret. Now, a lot of it is out loud funny, but a bit of it will only be understood by Fili, Ryan and others like the ass-hat. You can take a peek at it by clicking on the picture above. The photo references Matt Cutts, a paid stooge for Google whom I parodied hereon the site,  a few weeks ago. Anyway head over to the comedy and have fun. REMEBER to click on the links below the pictures for more fun….

PS: Speaking of Fili: Head over to his blog as that greedy, superficial blogger living in China’s latest province is actually offering free SEO help (There must be a catch :-)…) to anyone who wants to bring in traffic via sound and in-offensive methods.

Another SEO stunt in the works can be found by the hit-grubbers at Hao Hao and Chinalyst :-). They are sponsoring the 3rd-failed annual China Blog Awards. If you have already have a fave site you can vote for them and, more importantly, you can visit some of other blogs that you may not have cruised through yet. There is a terabyte of great stuff out there!

    Only one thing really missing from Chinalyst – the OMB blog. 😉

    Yeah Lonnie, why isn’t your blog on there? I went to vote for it and couldn’t find it.

    Thanks Ryan and Fili…

    I have been avoiding the contests of late: I score an unfair advantage if my students find out about things…They racked me up 5,000 votes in the Weblog Awards!!!

    That is the only problem with popular vote contests…That and cheating….You have one site with NO page rank leading the charge in your SEO category….Hmmmm….

    I would rather throw my hat in for you guys….

    Chinalyst isn’t about the awards – those will be over in a week, it’s just a place for China blogs. Totally up to you.

    Cheating is always possible, especially with anonymous voting, but I’m not too worried about that. This isn’t only about who’s best or more popular, but more about finding new blogs and sharing link love within the blogosphere.
    The Technical blog category just isn’t very active with a low vote count. I think you’ll find it a bit harder to beat Sinocidial and China Law Blog.

    I should have never taken that speed reading course:-)

    I agree about the awards….I have pushed it as a way for folks to visit new blogs…I assign winners of awards programs as reading for my classes….It is a great way to learn abut culture…

    I listed a couple of time, but am not sure why I am not in there….help? anyway I can spport more visibiity for others count me in!!!

    I went over the to vote and my favorite China blog, Sinosplice, wasn’t even an option! I’m sure I’m not the only other one who would vote for John, either. Is there any way to vote for blogs not on the aggregator?
