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.

Get backlinks the easy way

It’s Saturday morning and I just got an e-mail from Colin Klinkert (a very savvy Internet Marketing whiz who I follow very closely). Colin has created SocialMonkee , an ingenious tool to quickly and almost automatically create free backlinks to your most important pages. In under 5-minutes I watched his video and immediately signed up. I highly recommend you do the same.

Why You Should Get Backlinks

Building backlinks to your pages is an essential part of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for two reasons: 1) it helps your pages get indexed faster, which is very important because you want the search engines to find them as soon as possible and crawl them regularly; and 2) it helps your pages get higher search engine rankings for the keywords of your choice. The more backlinks you have, the better. It’s that simple.

However, building backlinks can be a time-consuming process. You can outsource the process and pay a lot of money (unless you go the ReplaceMyself route) or you can do it yourself with SocialMonkee .  All links are on unique C-Class IP addresses and domains. Imagine being able to create 25-100 unique backlinks every day, with the click of a button, FREE. Well, that’s exactly what SocialMonkee does for you.

So, 25 unique backlinks every day… That’s a total of 175 backlinks every week, 750 every month. If you upgrade, you will be able to build 100 uniques backlinks, 3 times a day. That’s a total of 2,100 backlinks every week, 9,000 every month. The good news is… you can get a Premium Account, FREE. All you need to do is to refer 12 members, and your account will automatically be upgraded. If you’re not really into referral marketing, you may upgrade right now for a low one-time fee.

Submitting a page to SocialMonkee via the members area takes under two minutes, but there’s an even faster way–they created a Firefox plugin that allows you to submit your page to up to 100 sites in just a few clicks, using nothing other than Firefox. If you have a Premium Account you will also get access to link reports and RSS feeds, which are great to keep track of your backlinks and get them indexed fast. Submitting your RSS feeds to RSS submitters is actually a very important step in link building.

Building backlinks to your pages is an essential part of SEO (short for Search Engine Optimization) for two reasons. The first reason is that it helps your pages get indexed faster, which is very important because you want the search engines to find them as soon as possible and crawl them regularly. The second reason is that it helps your pages get higher search engine rankings for the keywords of your choice. The more backlinks you have, the better. Period.

However, building backlinks can be a time-consuming, boring process. You can outsource the process to an agency and pay a lot of money… Or you can do it yourself with SocialMonkee! SocialMonkee is an instant backlink builder allowing you to build 25 unique backlinks, every day, FREE. All links are on unique C-Class IP addresses and domains. Imagine being able to create 25 unique backlinks every day, with the click of a button, FREE! Well, you can stop imagining…

  3. Mike – it looks like there are still some ‘show stopper’ issues with the site, as I’m having the same issues as many other folks here:
    * no confirmation email on registration and
    * no email using the ‘forgot password’ mechanism.
    * Also, Colin has no contact info on the site.

    BTW, do you know what the 25 social bookmarking sites are?
    Cheers!

    1. I just forwarded to Colin. We’ll post back here with results (thousands have registered for SocialMonkee…including 500 from Cool Site of the Day….so it’s working for many but, clearly, not everyone).

  5. Konta Osobiste…

    Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any ass…

    1. Yes, a lot of spam comments. I have to install a plugin–can’t remember the name right now–supposed to be better than akismet.

  6. Hello just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m
    not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.
