Yesterday was a particularly slow day for the blogosphere and made me a bit sad that most of the blogs I read about SEO & internet marketing are US blogs. A lot of UK blogs are still posting but traffic and readers are well down on BlogStorm.

TechCrunch posted a great step by step guide to creating viral YouTube videos without Arrington knowing. He is “disgusted” apparently. Personally I liked the post, especially the bit about paying bloggers to embed videos to bump up the view count. Very dirty.

Digg also apparently became a dating site which is funny. Does anybody put their real photo on there?

Stay tuned next week for an amazing new blogging & linkbaiting tool and a couple of in depth guides to getting traffic from Google.
