The Podcast for this post is at http://www.jackspirko.com/episode-122

Well folks we have a lot of cool stuff to cover today with the new 1 hour show format.  There is a lot of shift and change going on in the social media and search engine space so we will focus a lot on that today along with some other topics like what a doomed economy means to someone wanting to start a business.

Join Me Today as we Discuss...

    The real lesson of the google shopping "weapons ban"
    Why you may not want some links "counted" by search engines and how bing can help (sort of)
    Article writing - I say quality over quantity and seek mid sized blogs
    adSense and adWords the basics and are they for you
    Is your business scalable and how do you want it to "scale"
    Is there really any difference between "site keywords" and "page keywords"
    A random non online business concept and how I would take it online
    If I think the long term economy is doomed, why do I suggest starting a business

It was awesome to hear how you can scale an offline business like the gps-travel-guide for bikes. It is so obvious now when you said it.

Another great episode.  As with the last, I will have to listen 2 or 3 times in order to suck in all that info.   My head is exploding with ideas...

Loved the episode Jack. I am tempted to send you beer for ideas, but I know the second I do I'll be kicking myself for not thinking of it!

Great episode Jack.

Regarding Adsense not earning much on blogs, if people are interested in your blog they'll subscribe via RSS therefore they won't see the adverts from your site.

I guess the way around this is to have a mix of blog posts and static pages which contain killer content which you refer back to from your blog posts.

Matt, there may be something to that but I have to say just based on strait click through rates (measuring actual exposures) blogs really under perform static sites with contextual ads.
