“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

Website Traffic & Beer Money For YOU!

20110716-011244.jpgThis post is part 1 of a tutorial on how to create quick and easy giveaways to drive traffic to your website/blog and facebook page…and it also happens to be about beer…..REALLY GOOD beer (and I’m not saying this because PALM is a client…fact is, PALM IS a client AND they brew a kickass ale).

Anyway, three things are going on here:

  1. I’m running a cash giveaway (see below) to promote PALM (3 winners will be picked next Friday 7/22 based on total points earned)
  2. I’m using a neat plugin to run this giveaway called Punchtab
  3. If all goes well (meaning lots of you follow the simple steps from the ‘Join giveaway now’ button below), I’m going to record a short video explaining how the entire process works so YOU can run quick and easy giveaways like this one on YOUR website.

    1. Yeah that whole ‘this app wants to do everything’ language is so off putting but it’s really innocuous . I wish all apps and Facebook would come up with something less pushy sounding. Anyway, it’s a transparent world–embrace it, it wont hurt.

      1. Yes! In fact, I’m a Certified Professional Coach as of May 13! 🙂 This is a great idea! I’m thinking about how I might be able to use it to build up the fan base on my Facebook coaching page. Hope all is well with you too, and it appears that it is! 🙂

  1. i can’t read thre question again so i don’t know what it says and another thing is that the like button doesn’t work so I can’t like it. I drank some beer tonight, does that help? I’m not drunk though it’s not my fault this doesn’t work I’m still a genius.

  2. Ohhh. I don’t do facebook… old ex b’f found me and ongosh… I ran…  I can tweet you!!!  If I found the tweet button and if it counted.. humm no blue tweet bird…

    and I like Guinness beer a lot… and love to try out new stuff!

    OK well, hey I dig your email anyhow. You rock keep up the intensity great work you do,…. groovy dancer, lol!

  3. give a man a beer and he can drink for a day, give a man a still and he can drink for life !
     do i still get the visa card in the UK if i win ?
