Nine Lessons from A4U Expo


I’ve said it before: A4U Expo might just be my favourite webmaster conference. But since I know a few serious affiliates who didn’t go – and I’m not afraid to name names, Mr Powell – I thought I’d sum up what I learned:

  1. Mel Carson’s Cost Per Monk story
  2. Joost’s WordPress SEO talk
  3. Rob Kerry and Marcus talking SEO dirty tricks
  4. Advance notice Google would drop the ‘no gambling ads’ rule
  5. Shakil Khan’s tales of a £600,000 offer on a domain…
  6. … and of being the first Brit to sell viagra online
  7. Ben and Karl from Conversion Rate Experts on site feedback tools.
  8. Demoing Sunshine.co.uk’s WordPress plugin for affiliates
  9. Roy’s summary of internal link building strategies

Alas, I missed Al Carlton’s session on blogging, which was the talk of the town.

Next stop: SMX London. I’m speaking at the ‘Buying sites for SEO’ session with Dave Naylor, Doug Scott and Kristjan Mar Hauksson.
