“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

New blog, new content just for YOU

Those of you who have been following me for the past couple of years have noticed that I’ve been testing (read: struggling with) various blogging platforms.  First, I setup my blog using Google’s blogger platform then, realizing that WordPress is the shit, I ported everything over to WordPress.  The only problem with WordPress is that you’ve got to find the right WordPress Theme and I was going through Themes like toilet paper (hey, there’s a theme for ‘ya).

Anyway, I’m happy to report that I’ve found the ultimate Theme:  The Thesis Theme.  I can’t tell you how much easier it is to not only design and edit this blog but also enjoy enhanced SEO benefits with every post I write.

One other thing I want to say about WordPress (like Facebook and Twitter): there is a boatload of developers out there who have created insanely great add-ons (called plugins) just for WordPress (this is what makes WordPress and the Thesis Themes the only choice for blogging).  I’m utilizing too many plugins to list here BUT I have to say that one of my favorites is WP Affiliate Pro (an enormous time saver when writing about products for which I’m an Affiliate of).

Back to this blog, if you do nothing else here, always be sure to check the ‘Must Read’ tab at the top of the blog.  That page will show you articles or posts that I consider…uh….’must reads’ (for instance, if you’re into PPC advertising, you’ll want to see my post about PPC Tools.

That’s it for now except for this: post your comments below regarding what you think of the header for this blog (where my mugshot and logo appear).  If you’re a designer and think you can do better, by all means send me something…if I use it, you get paid.

Have a great day,

Mike
