This article on SEO for bloggers is just amazing. I highly recommend anyone with a blog who doesn’t already consider them past the intermediate stage on SEO read it. I recommend absolutely everyone read the followup on how the original article was designed and marketed as a stunningly effective piece of linkbait. (Some might say that this makes the original article cynical. I disagree — it was and is very useful to many people, and there is no reason you shouldn’t promote things which are useful to your audience for your mutual benefit. Rails is another project which has proven that just because you’re professionally marketed and designed to go viral doesn’t mean you have to suck.)
If you’re interested in SEO for bloggers, the author of that piece and I will both be contributing chapters to Steph’s book on blogging. You might find them of interest. If Steph lets me I’ll post an early excerpt from my chapter as an early Christmas present to you all.
P.S. Speaking of Christmas, I know you want to play Christmas bingo with your family, right?
