I hope that title was at least a little funny.
Anyway, we’re at 204 Sphinns over at the Greatest Hits page, which is great. But with the clamp down on paid links and the difficulties people have getting the “A” list to acknowledge them with links, I feel like we have an opportunity to push onwards. I know my dream of rolling the counter over 999 to 4 digits is rather “lofty”, but I see no reason why we can’t gather a bunch more of the Sphinn folks together on another “thank you” page right here. With desphinning coming soon, our current opportunity to bust the counter may never exist again. Also, I received word that someone is quietly raising Sphinns for himself to try and take the top spot away, which may include some organized desphinning down the road. That just seems so scammy, doesn’t it?
So if you haven’t already, go give that post a Sphinn, drop a comment here (which by the way, is a link) or send me an email and I’ll add you to the list of supporters as I thank the new ones on this page. Understand? I knew you would. Typical rules of good behavior apply.. no spammy achor text, please, and no abuse of Sphinn (via fake accounts, etc). If you are a genuine marketers, remember than linking to this post and linking to the Sphinn post help draw attention and increase the Sphinn count too. Doing so in the context of a conversation about How Marketers Can Help Other Marketers, or How Circulation Helps Marketing, or How Grass Roots Works Despite The Big Boys, or Sphinning for Links works, would be especially useful.
I tried to link out to everyone on the original post, although not everyone provided URLs or asked for links. if I missed anyone let me know now, in this post, and I’ll make it right.
Note about this blog and Paid Links: No, sorry, I won’t accept any offers for paid links from this blog. Please don’t ask. I value this blog and want to protect the integrity of this blog as a trusted web site in the Google universe. I follow the Google Guidelines as best as I can understand them, and I do not accept “paid reviews” unless they are very well funded, and even those will get nofollow links (in most cases). I like to play backgammon online, but that in no way suggests I have been paid for a link to a backgammon site like play65.com. I link to sites I trust and friends I trust. I link not because I am trying to influence search engines, but because I am trying to influence my friends. Duh.
