Jim Boykin and Internet Marketing Ninjas sieze Webmaster World

Written by / Posted in pubcon / 1 Comment

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.

much love

Advanced SEO EMD Update Underground Insider talk during Pubcon

Written by / Posted in pubcon / 7 Comments

-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.

You – Gourmet Burgers – FightClub – a Fancy Bar – and Kate :)

Written by / Posted in pubcon / 7 Comments

Well my fellow Pubconers, Tuesday evening is lining up, and guess what? You are invited!

First a picture of my buddy Kate! (There is a pic of her in a bikini at the bottom of this post, but it won’t show up unless you read the whole post!)

There are a whole mess of fun events I am guiding people to at Pubcon, a Fight Club with the number one UFC fight trainer in the world, Hanging out in the High Limit Lounge at the Mirage, Gourmet Burgers, Italian Food, Drinks at the Wynn and a poker tournament. Here is the whole weekends schedule! that you can read about here. But you wouldn’t know about that, because the only reason you are reading this post is because of Kate’s pictures! (Thanks Kate!)

I want to talk about Tuesday. First off at 2:15 is the fight club. In case you have been living under a rock, the world heavyweight champion of the world in mixed martial arts (UFC), meaning he is the most bad ass dude in the world is Randy Couture. Randy’s trainer, the greatest fight trainer in the world, and my friend is Coach Shawn Tompkins. Randy (the heavyweight champ) is defending his title this coming Saturday night in Vegas, right after Pubcon. In the middle of this enormous week of his life, he is allowing us to take over his gym for an hour just before the pros start training. Coach Tompkins is going to teach us real, can use imediately, skills to defend yourself! This is bad ass stuff! You need to sign up and pay $150 to cover the costs. There will be some extremely successfull internet geeks getting down and dirty! If you are reading this blog, you are invited!

My buddy Kate, who is a model and actress will be getting her workout for the day with us, taking our class! Guaranteed for some great photos I promise you! You probably don’t recognize her as her parts so far have been small and numerous. Give this girl a few more minutes and I expect to see her in bigger and bigger roles!

Then at 7:00 we will be heading over to BLT gourmet burgers at the Mirage. You did read this schedule didn’t you? Along with dozens? Hundreds? of your soon to be friends, we will be eating amazing gourmet burgers to die for! They don’t take reservations, so get there at 7:00, and we will either cruise on in, and break up into tables, or we will wait in line until we can. It is a casual place and should be way fun to eat and make new freinds. I recomend sitting with people you don’t know, so you can make some great new connections. You guys can fight over who gets to sit with me and Kate! It will make me feel special, even though it will be Kate you are trying to sit by.

At 9:00, or when we are done with dinner, we will roll over, (literally rolling after eating too much), to the Wynn. The Up-Parasol bar, is a round bar on the main floor, near the check in desk, that has lots of big cushy lounge chairs and drinks! This is the location where last year, I sat with The Mad Hat while he gave away his secrets until the wee hours of the morning. The funniest part was one of his fiercest competitors sat at the same table listening to the same lessons I was learning, but was so frustrated because he drank too much, and knew he would never remember it in the morning. I remembered though 🙂

Kate will be hanging out with us at the bar too. When you hear her accent you will probably burst into tears. Yep, I love setting the bar so high, that it will ruin the rest of your life!

If you run into Irelands best SEM, Dave Davis, ask him to buy you an Arnold Palmer and to keep them coming!

Well that’s Tuesday! Thanks for reading.

Oh? Did you want to see the bikini pic of Kate? Just scroll down, and leave a comment while you are there. Kate will be reading this to see if anyone liked her pictures.

Before you look, can I throw my events sponsors in front of you as a little quick product placement?

O.K. Here is my dear Kate. Be nice when you look at it!

Now go look at the schedule, since Kate will be with us all day on Tuesday!

Then go sign up for the FightClub on Tuesday at 2:15, before it sells out!

Then Leave a comment below so Kate will know what you thought of the pics!
