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.

Cool Site's Super Search Tuesday

I try not to post any messages on the weekend but I woke up at 4 AM this morning with my head buzzing about Tuesday. You know that feeling when you’re onto something really big and you can’t wait to tell the whole world?

Anyway, I had a conversation with the developer of the search traffic generator (let’s call it ‘nirvana’) that I’ll be revealing on Tuesday. If I didn’t know for myself, I’d think this guy is crazy (and, in fact, he is one of those ‘obsessed’ geniuses). The search traffic that his system is generating is mind boggling (I’m currently either testing or setting up 20 accounts for MYSELF in twenty different product categories). What’s even more insane is the pricing that he’s thinking of.

Worth $100,000 a year?

We won’t know until Tuesday what the pricing will be but I can tell you this: last year I spent $100,000 on pay per click advertising for ONE product and made almost $150,000. Well, from the sounds of what ‘nirvana man’ is telling me, I will be paying a small fraction of that to get even MORE traffic.

I can’t say anymore about pricing now because ‘nirvana man’ is struggling with the idea of making this system affordable for EVERYONE (he doesn’t want to leave the small business owner out). On the other hand, he’s starting to incur HUGE bandwidth costs (I’ll explain why on Tuesday) which his current pricing barely covers. Since ‘nirvana’ is still in beta, ‘nirvana man’ has only charged his early testers a pittance of what the system is worth. Lucky for me.

Once ‘nirvana’ is out of beta (when he reaches only 500 memberships) the price is going to skyrocket…and members, like me, will pay it gladly. Thing is, no one knows what that price is going to be; I’m hearing anywhere from $997 to $4,997 per year (a sick bargain).

Just one warning: ‘nirvana’ is not a simple setup; I didn’t jump aboard until a year after I was initially contacted by ‘nirvana man’ because the process seemed so daunting. When I finally realized that ‘nirvana’ had to be the #1 choice in my traffic tool kit, I spent 3 weeks learning it inside and out. I mention this because I may offer to setup ‘nirvana’ accounts at no cost for my Cool Site subscribers. I’ve got to think this through a little bit more before Tuesday.

OK, I’m off on a road trip until tomorrow night.

Have a great weekend wherever you are.

  1. Hi Mike, it’s late Tuesday and I’m anxiously awaiting the Nirvana search traffic generator info. Perhaps the unveiling was delayed until a later date ?
