A4U Expo London – What can a Linkbaiter teach Affiliate Marketers

On Monday I’m off to London to attend an affiliate conference called, A4u Expo. I’m speaking on the Killer Link Building Strategies panel along with Patrick Altoft Jon Myers and Christoph Cemper.

I think there are still tickets available, but going fast. You can get a 10% discount if you use this code SPKD10.

If you can’t get to the conference, make sure you get to the networking parties, which can be just as rewarding. If you do go would love to meet and say hi, if you are reading my blog you must be a cool dude ;) Best way to connect is to @ me on twitter. My account is Lyndoman Or you can email me lyndon at cornwallseo.com

Really looking forward to this one. SMX and SES are great but at the end of the day they are American and I remember last years SES sitting in one of the panels listening to 5 Americans telling me how I should rank. Surely we have enough talent in this country not to have to rack up the extra carbon shipping the Yanks over?

In fact, come to think of it. Why don’t we have a major UK based seo conference each year? It’s not like we don’t have the talent. Maybe I will put one in Cornwall, have it on the beach and have a sand castle building contest.

How to ask for a Retweet

I get asked a lot to retweet. Most of the time I don’t do them as it’s off topic to the market I target on twitter. When it is on target and the content is great I have no problem with retweeting.

The problem is, people don’t ask the right way.

This is the wrong way.
Dude, can you retweet this, http://twitter.com/lyndoman/status/4521290066

This is the right way.
Dude, can you retweet this. “RT @lyndoman: The great thing about how a child thinks, is that it doesn’t know what can’t be done, so just does it.”

Do you see the difference.

The difference is TIME.

You are not wasting the persons time, as all they have to do is cut and paste.

But, you may think you are a hot-shot-seo-rockstar who thinks people should be grateful that you even would ask them to do something. I don’t know. What I do know is that if you ask people a favour you don’t have to go round the houses to give it to them.

And another thing whilst I’m here, pointing people to a bit of content and asking for a RT is a pain in the arse, and it’s not a Retweet, it’s a tweet. Pedantic? Yes.

In the future, anyone who asks you to RT and gets it wrong, send them to this page and let me have a word with them.
