Just got into a friendly argument with a co-worker who thinks SEO and Article Marketing are a complete waste of time. He actually said that someone interested in those things must have no money. Really coworker? I complete disagree with your statement. Seems to me that both article marketing and seo are alot about building brand awareness and creditbility for the product. If you’re going to promote a product via Adwords then why would you NOT create brand awareness by building articles and press releases for that product?

What am I missing here? Is it really fair to say that someone who wants to make money via affiliate marketing does not promote via Articles and SEO? I think that is absured!

What do we get? Ahhh, here’s something from Stanford University titled, “The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine“. I bet we can learn a TON from this Abstract… Who started SEO anyway??? So exciting!!
