“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

Other than my business life, I'm also: Hoping our paths cross one way or another, Mike Corso e-mail: mike AT mikecorso.net facebook twitter | linkedin

Take This Survey – Win Free Coffee :)

(THIS SURVEY/GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED BUT DO WATCH THE VIDEO FOR SOME COOL TIPS)


Welcome to the ultimate marriage of obsession (coffee) and business. I put this viral campaign together to create a buzz (pun intended) over the soon-to-be-announced coffee blog I’m starting AND for you to learn a few marketing tricks for your website.  Feel free to steal these ideas for your own products and websites (links to the tools are below the video).

This short 2:00 video explains everything.

MOST IMPORTANT:  You must complete the very short survey below the video then hit the ‘tweet now’ button on the next page to be entered into the free coffee giveaway (and it wouldn’t hurt if you hit the Facebook ‘Like’ button above 😉 )

These are the 3 tools I mention in the video:

  1. Survey forms — Like the one below which I created with Formstack .  (I also use PollDaddy which has a nice WordPress plugin but Formstack has more options)
  2. Facebook ‘Like’ buttons – Click on it…it’s at the top of this Post.  Since Facebook introduced their Open Graph platform recently, websites can benefit from word-of-mouth publicity like never before.  I love it and recommend that you add these ‘Like’ buttons to your site.  If you’re not sure how to do this, post a comment below and I’ll reply to everyone.
  3. ViralTweets – When you answer the questions below and hit ‘submit’ you’ll be taken to a Page where you can send a tweet to all your followers about THIS Page.  When you do, you’re automatically entered to win one of three $25 gift cards to Starbucks.   If you have a good message (like…uh…free coffee for 3 lucky retweeters), your tweet will go viral like nobody’s business.  I’ll followup with results from this little test (you can try ViralTweets for free from this link)
