Updated: Jim Boykin: Deja Vu plus Swag and $720 in free ads.

Today I updated my "Jim’s Favorite Posts" section that I put in the footers of all my blog pages. I hadn’t updated it since Dec 13th 2006 so I added:

I know most people might just read these posts when they first come out…but some of these have since also had some nice "gems" added the comments (thank you all for your input and ideas!). Feel free to join any of these conversations.

Long ago I set it up this blog so that if a post was over 30 days, it would stop the ability for someone to make a comment….I’ve opened comments up on all of my favorite posts on the bottom…..Spammers shouldn’t stop nice conversations (I’ll control), and time can change things. (conversations shouldn’t "end".)

Want to win some We Build Pages swag and a few nice ads?
We Build Pages wall clock, We Build Pages desk clock, We Build Pages coffee mug, a 1 gig MP3 Player, a handful of Ninja Stars (rubber), and ~$720 worth of ads (over a 12 month period) (you name a site, our link team will research and find ~2 relevant pages and get you an ad on within the body area of the page) (at a value of ~$30/month each ($60 X 12 = $720)). If we give you ads in this deal we’ll expect that all details will only be between us, and not public.

To Enter:
Link to this exact post url in one of your blog posts (or on any website), and say something (hopefully something nice).
(if you’re not sure if I know that you’re entering this contest, email me and let me know (j i m at webuildpages.com).
How the winner will be chosen: Don’t know….but the one I like the best will get the goodies and a few nice relevant ads.
Time: This week only. I will be choosing 1 person On Saturday June 2nd.

Anyone who links to this post (before this friday at 5pm EST) will get a free We Build Pages wall clock..and one lucky winner will get all the swag promised above.

So get your free We Build Pages wall clock…it’s not a “payment”, it’s just one way I can say “thanks” to my readers.

I’m looking forward to Seattle next week!

I just joined and am happy to report that I am a Top 19 SEOSEMcoRanker at http://seosem.corank.com/! Well,maybe it can use a catchier name and url but what the heck, it’s worth a shot. And as Donna tells us, there are NO nofollows in them thar links! I submitted my first story warning everybody about the Link Ninja’s new ammunition. Time will tell if the diggers will migrate and bury the SEOs on this new playing field.    […]

    […] So why would anyone link to this post? Is the, sight unseen, wall clock really enough of an enticement to link to a post on linking to him? Well, maybe, if it’s a nice wall clock, free is a nice price to pay.  But freebies aside, the post itself does have links to the newest additions to “The Best Of Jim’s Posts”, and those are some good posts on Links, SEO, and the Supplemental Index in this post that are really worth a read, or even a re-read, although for some reason his political posts didn’t quite make the list (sorry Jim).    […]

    I was at my friend house last night and he has one of the clocks in his office and it is well worth it.
