“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

Other than my business life, I'm also: Hoping our paths cross one way or another, Mike Corso e-mail: mike AT facebook twitter | linkedin

What’s the single biggest challenge keeping you from creating the online success you deserve?

I was looking at the number of drafts of blog posts (as in, unfinished) that I’ve written and the number is out of control: 47.  That means, over the past few months I’ve started (and not finished) 47 blog posts.  Unconscionable.  Believe me, every one of them is filled with useful tips related to running an online business.

So here’s what I’ve decided….


That’s it, I’ve created this short poll for you to complete.  The number of responses for each topic will dictate which unfinished blog posts are going to get finished first (expect at least one or two a week).

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  1. Having to pay for the outrageous cost of advertising. everybody wants to sell you their advertising space and a help topic tied into it, I do not need anymore education on the internet or buy anymore help. we should not have to buy into anything that we really do not need, everything is in a bundle now, you cannot just pick what you need and not get just that, you have to pick this and that and all this extra stuff comes with. it is really aggravating. Do not get me started on the monthly service charges, taxes, and hidden fees they don't tell you about.

  2. Affiliate Programs – aaaggghh!! I get the idea, and I'm signed up with some high quality programs, with no results. I understand the basics but I can't help but think I'm totally missing the point. If I already had massive traffic and a huge email list, of course, the idea is I get commissions on sales when my visitors click banners on my site that match my site content… BUT, the affiliate programs say they can also help me GET traffic, even though most I've seen forbid any unauthorized use of their names, as in metatag keywords. If I can only use the banners themselves – how does this help me get additional traffic? Then I notice that ALL the viral, spam emails people forward around the internet with cute dogs, etc. seem to have totally unrelated affiliate links at the bottom. This seems to violate the affiliate terms of service I've read. but again, I admit I'm obviously not understanding this. So, Mike, I guess you can see why I voted for you to finish your Affiliate Programs blog first… PLEASE!! Dg
