Social news and video

City guides and reviews

Business related

Sports, leisure and other

Content aggregation

Environment and wealth

Top 10 internet marketing list

Even if I cannot say that I am a real fan of the listing concept (all these top 10 reasons or top 20 must seen…), I found several interesting lists in the past few months - all related to internet marketing – truly helpful and I decided to post some of them here:

  1. : A great way to be introduced to SMM & SMO, gives definitions, tips, comments and more. It also includes a 5 Must Know Guide on SMM & SMO, 8 articles On How You Can Leverage SMM & SMO to Work for You and few good articles related to Digg and StumbleUpon.
  2. : This list has incredible content. You will find a detailed definition of all the general bookmarking sites as well as public bookmarking sites and non English bookmarking services.
  3. : some critical advices that you cannot afford to avoid. A short excerpt :’’Stop using keywords in you URLs. Why? Because if you don’t know how to optimize a page without slamming keywords into the URLs, you don’t know how to optimize a Web page.’’
  4. : short post but less is more ! Every traditionnal marketer should read this one. It reminds me this awesome .
  5. : You just started a new WordPress blog, now what’s next ? Even if some of the tips could be considered as obvious (create a feedburner feed for you blog), I really don’t think that most of us still don’t have install important plugins (the All in One SEO Pack, Google Sitemaps plugin, create a Robots.txt file,…) to our blog.
  6. and
  7. : It could be done by a quiz, by a interactive video, via tools,… as long as people forward it. Nice recap of all the way that viral goes.
  8. : Besides those traditionnal questions, what else should we ask a PPC guy? SEOmoz answers it.
  9. : When a famous blogger asks it audience and when the audience responds.
  10. : well, this one doesn’t entirely match with internet marketing but since I spend most of my time in sales calls, it taught me a lot.

I was having this discussion with last week at Yulbiz and we were talking about the value of the term. While Gabriel , he doesn’t appear on the rankings on google.ca. But the main question was more: Is there any real value to rank on seo montreal ? As for my experience , we aren’t receiving quality traffic through this specific term, probably because of the fact that people are not yet aware of seo services, so they are not searching for it. Gab then added that within a year or few, the term should gain value, that does make sense.

I decided today to do a little check up on people who care about ranking on seo montreal. It’s fun to see that the person in the spot #5 has the same phone number as the #1 company. Note also that the montreal seo search gives you almost the same results that you have for seo montreal. There is also this Strategic Marketing Montreal company (based in BC ???) in the spot #6. Anyway, I will try to redo the exercice in few months to see if there is any chages.
