Internet Marketing Research

February 7th, 2008 · No Comments

The last couple of weeks I’ve been doing some research into the field of Internet Marketing. Specifically, I’m interesting in blogs, SEO, Google AdSense (and other ad networks), webstores (amazon, eBay, yahoo, etc.), and keyword selection. While I’m finding a lot of content that is both good and bad, I’m learning that there is more art than science to increasing page rank and driving traffic. I think that is in part due to the secretive nature of Google’s page rank algorithm and those finding success using SEO techniques. Don’t get me wrong, there are definite steps and methods to follow.

So I’ve reached a crossroads of sorts in my research. I’ve learned a fair amount through passive research. And now I’ve come to the conclusion that to learn more I really need to become active in the field and run my own experiments.

I think that means working on this blog. Setting up a couple more highly focused blogs. And generally rolling up my sleeves and getting dirty. I hope to record my success and failures here as well.

So to set the baseline. This blog is currently at a Google toolbar page rank of 3. And sense I haven’t been writing much in the last few months, the traffic is next to nothing. I’m currently sitting at 4 feed subscribers.  I have upgraded to the latest WordPress, updated the theme, and installed a number of plugins. (More on the upgrades in another post.)

So on with the fun. Check back often to see my progress.
