A short note

Last Update: July 30, 2012
I remember back in February or March of this year when I was first checking out what Internet Marketing entailed - I listened to a training on pay-per-click marketing and throughout the whole video I thought the presenter was saying "paper clip marketing". Don't laugh - or maybe DO laugh as I am - I actually Googled "Paper Clip Marketing". Just to remind myself I have come a long way from that point in these past months and I am sure others can remember similar humorous experiences! So I just blogged that to remind myself to lighten up!

hahahahaha....can you imagine?

Talk about silly things...when watching a training video, have you ever tried to control things like the mouse and the scroll bar that the presenter is using on their screen? It's kinda like a reflex I guess..we were talking about it in Chat during the last Wabiner. Forget who was trying to scroll Jay's screen but it is funny.

Maybe you found a new niche...lol

We have all done those sorts of things. I don't have an excuse... I knew what PPC is and was listening to a webinar the other evening... It sounded like the speaker said"paper clip" to me as well. I thought perhaps it was perhaps a more precise marker (pinpointing a phrase within an online document or article) within a bookmark or something like that... I googled too... to my surprise, they exist but not for online pin pointing. I still giggle about that.

Oh Sorry...But I remember when I thought long-tail keywords were called that because they were so long.

Long-tail keywords refers to the fact that if you graph out the search results these keywords will fall in the long tail of the graph because they have fewer searches than the other keywords.
