100,000 inlinks

One other interesting note; at Ad:Tech, Bruce Clay asked the audience (among other questions): How many of you have more than 100,000 inlinks to your website? Looking around, I saw only one other hand raised. Checking over the weekend, the Discovery Channel Store has about 110,000. Amusingly, this blog is over 30,000 -- however, I believe about 20k are from one blogroll that I was added to, that clearly publishes non-stop :)

Search Engine Strategies San Jose is coming up next week. I've gone to several in New York, but never on the West Coast, and at four days, seems a bit long. There's a good behind the scenes look at running an SES conference. There should be some good resources online to follow along with, including the TopRank blog. Anyone attending?

Cottonelle has a branded campaign featuring a very cute puppy running around your desktop. I clicked on this first because I had a friend who used to work at OTO Labs, the agency that created it, but it's a nice application, and a good way to build a community around toilet paper, something that's on the challenging side of the spectrum.

LinkedIn now has a feature called "Who viewed my profile?"... It shows titles or companies of people who have viewed your profile. This seems to be part of a trend towards "overt surfing", where the tracks of where you go online are revealed for all to see. With a bit of work, I can identify about 30% of the people who've visited my profile, which then leads to interesting speculation.

A few days ago I noticed this site had stopped being indexed in Google. It turns out that when I had upgraded to the new version of Blogger, it inserted new code that essentially told Google not to index this page. This is only supposed to happen in Blogger if a blog is set to private, which was not the case with mine. Marketing Pilgrim had an excellent post about how it sometimes sets meta tags to "NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW". I've removed the bad code, and hopefully Google will be reindexing shortly.
