“If you observe a really happy man you will find him building a boat, writing a symphony, educating his son, or looking for dinosaur eggs in the Gobi Desert.” - Australian psychiatrist W. Béran Wolfe

Greetings & Thanks for Visiting!

mike corso - seo - cool site I'm a web viking and digital marketing ninja (SEO, SEM, email, social media, landing page optimization, lead generation, etc. ) responsible for Cool Site of the Day, the Internet's oldest directory (launched in 1994).  I'm also Google Adwords Qualified and am one of only .5% with direct access to Google corporate. One of my goals with Cool Site of the Day is to shine a light on all the cool websites since the beginning of cyber time.

Cool Site of the Day has featured a unique site every day since August of 1994...nearly 9,000 sites!

As for my approach to Internet marketing and SEM, the following quote says it all:

“That which is measured improves. That which is measured and reported improves exponentially.” (Pearson's Law found on Mark Joyner's Simpleology)

More background

In 1993, I was the first person to promote music on the Internet for the major record labels (via bulletin boards and primitive websites!). After 5 years working for the music industry, I bought Cool Site of the Day (1998).
I have been quoted in several online and offline publications including The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal and am usually available for interviews and speaking engagements.

Sometimes I find time to offer consulting services...

If you do decide to contact me for a consultation, know that we will FOCUS on keyword research and competitor analysis INTENSELY (believe me, it will save you hours/days/months/years of heartbreak). THEN, you will know if your idea has a shot; if not, I will likely redirect you towards a more lucrative path.

How I spend my free time

Bloggers & Sex Go Dark

A recent Brazilian YouTube sex scandal threatened to close down every WordPress blog around the world.

Did you hear about it? It’s already called “YouTube Gate” — apparently a spicy sex scene was posted on YouTube and someone discussed it on a WordPress-hosted blog.

The problem is the Brazillian courts placed a ban on viewing the IP address of the entire WordPress website…

… And that means potentially thousands of bloggers can’t have their content shown in their country.

Even worse, this isn’t the first time a violation like this closed down an entire network of blogs.

But the bottom line is this should be a wakeup call for those who rely on hosted blogs (like WordPress) to tweak their strategy and avoid getting their own blogs banned.

The good news is the fix is simple… just host WordPress on your own server (rather than hosting it on the WordPress site).

Getting WordPress installed on your own site is now a snap… just take advantage of John Saya’s FREE WordPress autoinstaller.

P.S.
This blog is currently hosted on Google’s Blogger, however, I’ve tweaked it so that the URL shows MY domain (coolsite.com) rather than the common ‘blogspot.whatever.com’. Regardless, I’ll probably graduate to WordPress soon and will certainly lean on John and his autoinstaller for help.
