Everything Is About Attention and Google-Juice

August 27, 2006

When you realize that A-Listers are the world, then you’ll get lots of web traffic. 

Want to quietly help out a small startup? if you are known throughout the blogosphere, you cant just quietly help out anybody – it’s clearly against the rules in my book “I’m Naked But Having A Conversation”.  No attention means that you are on the verge of returning to a life of being just another Z-List gunkie-face.

Not attending Camps? You must have a plan on hob-nobbing with the blogging world’s elite and chosen next elite to be successful.  Even if this means foregoing any sort work on your startup to do so.  There’s just something about sleeping on the floor with a ton of other geeks hoping to get a link from ME! even if the others are living at home with Mom, are independently wealthy, or have recurring adsense income from their splogs.  Screw the startup…go to Camp.

No links to A-Listers? You won’t be successful because the A-List won’t let you be successful. The A-List is the new pink, baby.  Your every waking moment and every action should be geared to trying to be like ME! with your name prominently displayed on top of everyone else in a Google search….because that’s clearly the rightful measure of a person.

Don’t want to be in the Search Indexes because you want to remain private?  You clearly do not have a blog. 

Want to post on your blog when you can?  Nope…against the rules.  You don’t have a blog.  You must commit to at least 5 posts per day at all hours of the day or night.  Your long tail public of 3 readers awaits.

Better get your priorities straight and quick! You can only publically disagree with me when you’ve talked to 4000 industry leaders (I’m keeping a count) or I know who you are.


Sitting Down With Another Industry Leader

August 27, 2006

I sat down with another industry last week and threw out my usual softball questions.  Two things are absolute truisms in my book:   if a blog or corporate PR says it…it has to be true…and guaranteed I’ll swallow it whole hook, line, and sinker. So when corporate PR says that affiliates make upwards of $xxx,xxx per year, that means everyone will.

At Sicromoft, the ability to demonstrate critical thinking wasn’t necessary because since the issues with teams were already well-known, I could simply avoid the hard ones.  Now that I’m my own brand, I’ll feed the masses their pulp and play to my minions.  Conjecture presented as facts play as well as corner cases presented as the norm….why should I critically think when my hundreds of minions will always support me?

If they happen to disagree (how could they?  I’m ME!)  I’ll either 1) throw a tantrum, 2) insult the poster, 3) whine about how hurt my feelings are (that seems to work well) or 4) insist that they are working for a competitor.

if somehow publically proven to be wrong, I’ll just write a quick unfelt admission to be buried under 15 other postings…this should never be regarded as an apology.  Needless to say, I wont ever comment again on the topic.


Did I tell you….

August 25, 2006

….that since I’ve talked to 4000 industry leaders, I basically know everything?  Really…I do…just ask ME!  Worship my knowledgability while you wallow in the hollow Z-list long tail! I make and break websites with nary a breath and just thoughts of a link.

 I won’t link to others in the A-List, of course, because everyone should be paying attention to ME!  (unless of course they blindly agree with me or drive more traffic to my site because that’s different)

More About Me

August 25, 2006

I know that you are thinking “who is Scobert Roble?” (mainly because that’s all that the unwashed internet masses have to do all day). 

So before I was my own Internet brand, I used to work for Sicromoft (where I know everyone and they all drop everything at the drop of a hat only to be on shaky video).  One day, Gill Bates, sends ME! an email about a recent thinkweek paper that I wrote…little old modest ME!….and says that he wants to use parts of it in a speech.  Well, everyone knows that making it into a Gill Bates speech means that it is as good as defined, right?

Oops, my feedcount is still higher on the old blog about ME! so please subscribe to my feed.

Where was I? Oh yeah, talking about ME! and how many people I know.  Continue to hang onto every word and send me congratulatory comments while I prepare 8 more posts on this subject for today.
