I came from a pre-google era on the Internet and so that means not only did we do things differently but I look at things differently. In the "Old days" you built traffic by links and by search. The biggest search engine of that day and era is long gone. Of course to me trading links back then was like a mortgage so I figured out about type ins and that was traffic without the mortgage.
Of course back then I never had a content so there was nothing to trade either. So nobody would link to me. Why would they?
But now I draw back on those days. I go back to basics and what I learned back then from people who did have content. They needed a great cross-section of eyes and that was THE way.
So as I build up HallofShame.com I am simply going back to basics. And when you have a common cause, the basics trump everything else. And we do have a common cause. Friend or foe, our cause is the same and we have to fight on the same team. Period!
So it is really wonderful to see the help I have gotten and folks pitching in where they can and even if it is just hitting the like or the tweet button, you have done something proactive. Something to help the cause. Part of what I am doing I have done before. The other part is what I learned in the movie "The Social Network". One of THE most educational things I have ever seen to help understand the Internet.
We will demonstrate in front of the world what we can do when you have passion and what many can do together when they are passionate about something. My talents are limited. Very limited. I can just provide the spark and the time. But together we have talent beyond most fortune 500 companies. We have a bullhorn and a soapbox the likes of which the world may not be able to fathom. This is just something long overdue and now we have a vehicle that is actually moving the needle. The FIRST 18 wheeler is approaching the crest of a very big hill.
Besides everything else, today I wrote the Press Release. I am on the second look over right now and hope to arrange distribution by tonight or tomorrow so it can immediately and keep this momentum going. As they say....FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION!
This is our moment folks. You can see the domain market heating up each and every day. I have been talking about it for weeks and it is here now. The golden era of domaining is HERE!
