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

  1. Great post, Some of these tools I have heard of before, some of them I use and a couple I am going to check out, like Timely. Thanks for providing such valuable and time saving tips, much appreciated.

  2. Cool tool and a great video too I loved the linking and PR parts and will be using sheer SEO in the near future.

    Thank you Mike I didn’t even know this tool existed.

  3. I already use something similar, but this tool has things I never thought about. I am going to take the trial and will compare both solutions. I do like the monthly fee idea instead of paying out a few hundred pounds.

    If successful I would like to add this as a resource to my website.



  4. Mike, Thanks for posting this helpful video. I am definatley one of the people that are struggling with SEO. I may take the free trial and see if I can get my rankings up.

  5. Great info! I’d love to see some videos about backward links and using links for search engine marketing. Forums and blogs how they are being used and how to use them on your site.
