Mahalo, The Ultimate Seo Mashup Setup?

Friday, February 5th, 2010

One site I’ve been paying more attention to lately is Mahalo which seems to be the ultimate SEO machine. Mahalo does well as a mashup that I had to wonder if having a mashup would be the best layout for a blog? Does pulling up related Google searches, Google images, videos, etc help give your blog better rankings? Mahalo seems to think so, taking their posts to the extreme, having automatic content automatically posted from across the web.

In fact if you look at Mahalo’s feed, they are having topics to get indexed by google that have no original content. They just mashup the information using scripts that automatically grab related content. Did they find a loophole that lets them get indexed very well with stealing content in a legitimate way? They only take the amount of description that Google has and in fact the only have thumbnails of the images. No legal issues have been raised yet that I know of. So maybe Mahalo really does have one of the best seo tools?

Review of Vibrant Media, Total ECPM

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Vibrant Media is one new ad agency I’ve started using so I thought a review was necessary. Vibrant media offers in text advertising for websites that get 500k users. Does the ECPM live up to the hype? Currently their ecpm is good, and it does pay pretty good per ad click. However, most of their ads only show up in the USA and Canada so you’ll need to use another ad agency for foreign traffic.

Currently I’ve been using a combination of Vibrant Media and Infolinks to get the most out of my text links. So far the combination has paid off, giving me a higher total earnings than using either ad company alone.

If your website does qualify for their stringent requirements, leave me a comment below and I can personally recommend you too their ad agency.
