One Click Lead Capturing (without cluttering a site with Gimmicks):
Recently I was tipped off about this plugin that allows users to opt-into newsletter lists by clicking a button (very painless process). It looks good, it’s cheap, and it does what it says.
leverages the Facebook API
and the Google API
to collect the user’s email address, and then forward it to Aweber or whatever list management service you use… they support up to 27 different email services. The setup takes 10 minutes and I made a video showing you what it looks like and explaining how to install it:

This plugin is currently in dime sale mode, which means it increases 10 cents every sale, and the special is being hosted at Warrior Forums. I managed to lift the product yesterday for about 26.00, it’s getting heavy promotional traffic and it tops out at 96.00 for a multi-site license. That being said, do what you will.
Matt Cuts does a video on Micro-Niche sites and how he feels about them. Summary says… they do not bother him (as long as they are done well). Still a good short video to watch.
The Following Information is related to our BlogSense WordPress Automation platform:
Blogsense has recently included SpinnerChief
as one of it’s spin API options…
This one is pretty cool. It has the most variable settings of all the available content-rewriting services. It offers a free trial account with 20 calls a day so you can test it easily,
and it supports 27 different language thesaurus databases.
I’ve not yet seen a 3rd party spin service offer multiple language database solutions so this enables SpinnerChief
to stand out a little bit.
And in related news, the SpinRewriter
API is now live too. It’s always been available but they had had some issues with their API stripping HTML and this caused funky output
with Blogsense. I gave it a test yesterday and it’s looking good.
An article that does some PR work for Google highlighting it’s most recent search engine updates and changes. It also recommends ways of strategy re-alignment in response to these changes.
Political Economy Article:
Long but educational article comparing the economic conditions of China and America and how they have progressed, as well as highlights macro-corruption phenomenon in both countries political-economic systems. If you are into global economic affiars studies then this article will help build a potent paradigm for consideration in your studies.
Note: I had to use a text-to-speech program to move through this article in one sitting, and there’s probably no way I would have ever finished it without one (unless someone printed it out and gave it to me for light reading). Here’s the text-to-speech reader I use that ties into my Google Chrome browser as an extension:
If you have trouble reading or enjoying to read, then a text-to-speech app is a great way to train yourself for longevity. A reader is a leader.
An article that highlights an experiment on “negative seo” which is use of link spam tactics directed at a competitor’s site in order to cause harm. The founder/ceo of SEOmoz has created a competition to see if visitors can employ the tactic to harm their site’s rankings in order to bring further light to the issue.
Take care guys and I hope you enjoyed this weeks summary!
