In this episode, fake radio DJ Wink Dinkerson from KRUD radio kicks off the show and we talk about Web 2.0 Backlinks, a podcast I found called the SEO Podcast, a brief corn sheller update. I also discuss an example of the best kind of affiliate marketing that you can possibly do.
This is the 39th episode. Late again! Once again I did not quite make the expected date of Thursday October 11 – but this time I have a great excuse — I am in Asia!. I got close this time — the episode was actually recorded on Thursday. Next episode is expected Thursday October 18.
In This Show…
Greetings from Asia. Actually I recorded this show just before leaving on my latest Asia adventure. But I did the edits on the plane and in the hotel room, so that counts (sort of). Here is a shot of downtown Hsinchu from outside the front door of the hotel with my iPhone using the Panorama feature.
Best Kind Of Affiliate Marketing
In this episode, I call out Cliff again. This time I highlight how Cliff is doing affiliate marketing the right way. On his podcasts (several) of them, Cliff is talking about his Fitbit. This is a great way to do affiliate marketing by actually adding value. The page that I mention on Cliff's site can be found at http://gspn.tv/fitbit. Check it out and see what I mean.
Three Kinds Of Web 2.0 Backlinks
In this episode, I answer a question from listener Jeffery, who asks about Web 2.o backlinks. I argue that there are at least three kind of useful Web 2.0 backlinks
- Backlinks from content on pages like Squidoo and Blogger
- Backlinks from Social site profiles (like the “my site” link in your Twitter profile)
- Backlinks from social buzz when people are talking about your pages.

Episode 039 Transcript
Shout out to Wink Dinkerson from KRUD radio. That was one of my cheesy voices from when I was in high school. I was a speech drama and debate geek in high school. In fact, I lettered in debate, which is kind of geeky. Not football, not soccer, debate. I was offered a scholarship to college for debate – I don’t know if you even know that they have these things, but there are scholarships. I did that and it was fun, I really miss it sometimes, I like to argue with people.
Heading Out to Singapore
Thanks for tuning in. I’m actually on my way out the door. I have a flight to L.A. and then to Hong Kong, then on to Taiwan and Singapore. I’m trying to get this in the can before I get on the airplane and I’ll probably edit it on the way out to L.A. and try to upload it from the L.A. airport from the Admiral’s Club there.
I’m flying American Airlines, hoping very much that my seat doesn’t come loose and all this crazy stuff that’s been going on with American. I love American Airlines, they’re a Dallas based company, they’ve always taken very good care of me. I know they’re having all kinds of crazy labor things going on and finance things going on, but I love them. I’ve flown hundreds of thousands of miles with American Airlines and I hope this all goes okay.
I love going to Asia, I love Singapore particularly. I think it’s one of the coolest places to go in the world. It’s shopping on steroids. It’s an amazing little island country that is just crammed full of interesting people, all very nice. I’m looking forward to doing that.
Today I wanted to talk to you about some things that have been going on.
