I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! We ended up doing a lot of driving but that’s what happens when there are two families to visit! I haven’t written in awhile because so many things have been going on, but here’s a quick recap of some things I thought were interesting.
Helium Report Dominates Online Luxury News Industry
Helium Report is an independent guide for wealthy consumers interested in items like destination clubs, fractional real estate, private jets, yachts, and more. I’ve been associated with the great team at Helium Report for many months now, and their online presence is just killer, especially when I’m working with two other kingpins in the industry Dan Rubin and Dan Benjamin. In only the short time that Helium Report has been around (less than a year) they’ve already surpassed luxury heavyweight Robb Report over at Alexa which is no surprise to me since Robb Report’s website is awful. Helium Report even has a user-written reviews area (that one is about Exclusive Resorts, one of the biggest inthe industry) where normal people can review companies and have their opinions show up front and center. We’re not resting on our heels either, a revamped homepage and site design offering even more user interactivity is set to launch soon, so I can’t wait to see how that’s going to impact traffic.
9rules Reaches 10,000 Notes and 2,000 Notes Accounts
We unleashed 9rules Notes back in July with the goal of bringing more constant traffic to our 30+ communities (thus increasing outgoing traffic to our members) and in the 5 months that Notes has been live it’s really taken off. We have a lot of additions and improvements schedule for the beginning of the new year, so make sure hop over and get yourself a Notes account if you don’t already have one.
Danny Sullivan’s Search Engine Land Launches
Search engine master guru Danny Sullivan’s new site Search Engine Land just launched, and already the content is fantastic. Danny is one of the pioneers in the SEO industry after starting Search Engine Watch in 1996. He was nice enough to give me a shoutout in his welcome entry, thanks!!
