Those who know me know that we have been absolutely killing it this past year.
It has undeniably been our best year ever.
I am passing up literally dozens of other opportunities next week to go to leadscon.
Why, because I Can’t Afford NOT to Attend!
There are going to be big decision makers from big companies that do lead gen online,
as well as lots of guys who are doing big things developing and selling leads.
The list of companies coming is over 1000.
I have gotten to be buddies with Jay, the organizer of leadscon,
and he gave me the bro hookup so if you want to grab one of the
last few seats, you even save some money.
I am going big on this one, and will be doing one of my back room NDA events.
I have only committed to three events this year, and this is one of them.
Where a lot of the other events have gotten full of wanna be successful guys,
this event is full of us who are there.
Come join me in making some great contacts and creating the future of the internet.
I am super, super excited.
Last night during our EMD event, I kept deferring to Jim for his opinion, and noticed something was different.
He obviously had something on his mind.
This morning the news is out!
Internet Marketing Ninja’s now is the owner of Webmaster World.
Webmaster world is the oldest and most respected forum for SEO types to geek out.
I know because for years I was one of the more prominent members. I am going back in now!
In many ways, Pubcon is a community of those of us who all met on Webmaster World.
Matt Cutts used to hang out there as Google Guy.
When I first wanted to learn about SEO, I tried to get in there, but they would not allow me to register with a hotmail address,
so it took me a year, (not kidding), to figure out how to get a “real” email address.
Jim is one of the first people I met in this industry, I believe 8 years ago, and I am just thrilled that he now owns one of my favorite sites
Jim is an extremely social guy, who deeply cares about the world around him. He has always been a supporter financially of virtually every event I do, and when there has been a charity component, he kicks in without even asking what or why.
He has an amazing community at Internet Marketing Ninjas, and is constantly doing some of the most creative and innovative things in the industry.
I just can’t be happier for him, and happier for the Webmaster World Community.
Time for me to upgrade back to my paid membership there.
Congratulations Jim! Full speed ahead.
-Sign up to show interest. If 100 people sign up, I will present this.-
Google came out with their EMD update last week, and it gave huge insight into what they are penalizing, and what they are rewarding. It was an isolated update, and tremendous insights were gained through statistical analsyis of tens of thousands of links over about a hundred sites.
Christoph Cemper of Link Research tools did an amazing analysis of this.
Christoph and I have been discussing it, and have some insights into what Google actually wants now in terms of links, and what it does not. This is not pie in the sky theory, but hard numbers and analysis showing what is going on right now.
I have a slide presentation and insider info on the study.
If there is enough interest I will rent out a room at one of the hotels, and put on a presentation about what Christoph found, our discussions, my insight, and what to do.
Christoph is in Austria, so we decided it would be best for me to present this during Pubcon.
I will also lead an open discussion to hear others opinions on the data.
This is a super advanced SEO get together.
This is not an offical Pubcon event.
Jeff at Pubcon told me they are just slammed for space and time, and that I would have to do this on my own.
Share this with other SEO experts so we can get 100 people who want this, then I will put it on.

If you have links for these parties send them to me.
If you have any other parties, send those as well.
Also, is there ANYTHING going on, on Wednesday?
This song is for Mrs. Soapbubbles.
I’ve been on mac for years now, through at least 5 computers. There is a spreadsheet I need to open, which only works with windows and excel for windows. So I installed Parallels which allows you to run windows on a mac. Then it came time to download the windows software.
All of a sudden everything came to a complete stop and it said something like it would take 24 hours to load. WTF? ROFL!
Jasmin sitting next to me who uses a windows computer says, “Welcome to the world of PC.”

Warren Buffet and Credit Report.com created a contest for kids to flex their entrepreneurial muscles.
If they go to the Secret Millionaires Club website, they can post their business idea.
The site will ask them questions about their idea, how they are going to raise money for it and how they are going to market it.
The deadline is tomorrow afternoon.
The winning kid gets $5,000.
Thanks creditreport.com and Warren Buffet.
First off, the CreditReport.com party is way booked over capacity. If you are an affiliate grossing over $100k per month in offers, hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org and I maybe, might still be able to get you in.
Those coming, 4:30 to 6:30 Sushi Roku at the end of Ceasars Shops by Mirage on the top floor, take the round escalators up and up!
Link Research Tools and Purpose Inc Poker Tournament

CreditReport.com Mini ThinkTank at Affiliate Summit
CreditReport.com and I are throwing a mini thinktank on Monday at 4:30 during Affiliate Summit.
Most of the parties at Affiliate Summit are too loud to to talk, full of Newbies, crowded, and honestly most people are so drunk that real business and real conversation can’t get done.
CreditReport.com and I are putting on a VIP invite only event.
We are issuing a public invitation to apply, but you need to be reviewed by me, approved and invited by me to get in.
Send an email to email@example.com to apply, and let me know who you are and what you have done in the online world.
We have a very limited amount of space, this is going to be a private event, at an amazing place, with a killer view of the strip.
You need to be in some way a player or a player on their way up in the internet marketing world.
The party is from 4:30 to 6:30 at Sushi Roku in the Caesars Shops on the top floor of the round tower at the end of the shops.
It will be an open bar and light snacks.
Sushi Roku is a super high end place, with amazing Sushi. They have one of the absolute best views of the strip of any restaurant in Vegas.
Email me here, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you want to come. Let me know who you are.
Link Research Tools and Purpose Inc Poker Tourney
After the party at 7:00 is the poker tourney. It will be over in time for those going to the Affiliate Ball or Jason from Ads4Dough’s little tea party.
Chris Cemper, the founder of Link Research Tools, and a bad ass dude that I have followed for almost a decade, has kicked in big time to allow the poker tourney to take place this year. Every player gets an In N Out Burger.
Chris has an amazing deal for you guys if you are interested. I have been using his tools for the past month and they absolutely kick ass over any other SEO tool I have ever seen. Dead serious on this. Check out Chris’s SEO Deal here.
Buy in for the poker tournament is $100. It will be at the Mirage Hotel, right next to Caesars, and right next to Sushi Roku where the cocktail mastermind event will be. It is going to be done in about 2 1/2 hours so we have time to hit the other parties. Every player will get an In N Out Burger to eat while playing, so this can count as dinner! There will be rebuys and add ons, and is always a fun game! Register for the Poker Tournament Here.
As a lot of you may know, I have been doing some link building for my sites and some others lately.
I only do it totally white hat.
I figured there must be a lot of great companies that could help.
One that I always recomend for helping with this type of work, who do excellent work and do it white hat is IMN, the company of Jim Boykin we all know as We Build Pages.
I want the links to be as diverse as possible, so at Pubcon this year I was talking to other companies as well.
Overall I was extremely disappointed, and realized what Jim does and what I do is some of the best work around, and is totally white hat.
One company sounded really interesting.
I asked them to send me some url’s of sites they get links from.
They are nice guys, and I still might use their company, so I am not going to out them, but what happened next was totally hilarious.
They said, “well we don’t usually give out the url’s of the sites the links come from, but in this case we will give you an example”. They then gave me a link to this site.
I entered the url, and this is what I found. Not a very good promotion for quality links. ROFL.
