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

Is having a customized video player on your website good for SEO and link building?

Stellie asked:

A video player is web tool. It could be designed to have an appearance that would remind of the certain brand and by having the options to be embedded and shared it could help generate links and thus contribute to the SEO efforts. I see it as a web content development, quality content or link bait. What do you think?

    If you put great content on your website it will increase your traffic due to relevance for what you have and what people may be searching for. A player with no videos is just a browser….so it really matters how you TAG your videos and how you embed this player in your page in a way that the crawlers can identify what the content of this page is so that they know how to categorize it into their search results.

    So having a customized video player is nice for site appearance, given the content is relevant to your site and people might link to it based on quality, then yes it can’t hurt and could help improve the site’s overall traffic. I wouldn’t spend tons getting someone to do this who is trying to sell you on something.

    Having customized video player does help in link building and also in generating traffic to the site.
    If the video is embedded properly and satisfies the search engine principles , then there is also chance of having good positions in the search engine results pages.
