8 Hot Posts from around the Web

Hot PostsEvery once and a while, I come across some amazing blog posts and articles around the web, and when I do, I bookmark them to make sure I have a chance to share them with you in posts like this.

Here are 8 awesome posts that I couldn’t wait to share with you today.

How Authors Really Make Money: The Rebirth of Seth Godin and the Death of Traditional PublishingTim Ferris, author of The 4-Hour Work Week, always has some great content on his blog, but this post was amazing because it shed some light on the publishing process which I am very very interested in. Maybe I shouldn’t write that print book that I always wanted to. Oh, and what a sweet headline.

Blogger Gems – Part 2 Released! – This isn’t really a hot post, but more like a hot announcement along with a hot free gift. Srinivas Rao and Sid Savara over at BlogcastFM have interviewed a ton of successful bloggers and have complied the gems from each interview into an eBook. If you’re wondering about how to potentially monetize audio, doing what they did is a fantastic idea – but these guys are actually giving it away for free. Sweet.

23 Entrepreneurs Reveal How They Have Built Their Communities – Rob from Robswebtips.com has compiled a compendium (yes, a compendium!) of killer responses from 23 of the top online entrepreneurs, all answering the question: “What initial step did you take to form your own, unique community of supporters and followers?”

Dominating Viral Marketing with Viperchill.com Founder, Glen AllsopA lot of you have told me that my Podcast session with Glen from Viperchill.com (session #3), was one of the best sessions ever. Since I know a lot of you can’t get enough of Glen (like myself), here is another fantastic podcast interview with Glen by Chris Ducker from VirtualBusinessLifestyle.com.

5 Extraordinary Blog Post Types that Will Grow Your Audience Faster – The title says it all. Corbett Barr from ThinkTraffic.net, who is seriously one of my favorite people right now, never ceases to amaze me with his excellent content. I really hope to get him in an interview for the podcast soon, because I know we’re all looking for ways to increase traffic on a small budget.

[EXPOSED] 6 Figure Blogger Screws Up, Tells All – David Risely from DavidRisely.com has been on my radar lately, and this post will show you why. He’s honest, knows his stuff and is willing to share his mistakes so that you and I can avoid them. Good stuff.

Unbelievable Stories of Niche Market Success – With all of the niche site talk going on here on SPI, I thought this post by Murray from Murlu.com would be appropriate to share. There are truly millions of niches to choose from, so don’t think there’s no room for you anywhere.

Search Engine Optimization FAQ (Warrior Forum)This is required reading. I’ve linked to the Warrior Forum before and I just had to do it again because this probably the most comprehensive, free guide (no opt-in necessary) about SEO available on the web. I mean, just check out the table of contents on the first post of the thread. Thanks for the link Toby!

Have a great weekend everyone! My September Monthly Income Report will be posted on Monday, so look out for that.

    Awesome posts Pat,

    I’ve read around 5 of them and I will be reading the other ones a try. Corbett’s post on how to write blog posts that grow your blog is really awesome!

    Thanks a lot for the great post,

  • KimP

    Great post, Pat!

    I read Rob’s article when it first posted, I liked your contribution by the way.

    It’ll take me awhile to read the others, but I have some good reading material for the next few days!

    Thanks again!

  • Murlu

    Wow Pat, my biggest thanks for the link love.

    That warrior post is epic; makes me almost want to never write about SEO again because I could just easily point to that thread haha.

    Plus Tim Ferris talks about Seth Godin? That’s awesome colliding with each other.

    Much love and have a great weekend :)

    I’ve (surprisingly) never run across that SEO FAQ in WF before. Thanks!

  • http://www.devinelder.com/ Devin Elder

    Great list Pat, I love getting ‘best of’ info from people who are on top of their game in this business.

    As much as I’ve used WF, I’ve never seen that SEO FAQ – I wish that was the first thing I’d ever read on IM!

    Have a great weekend.

    Wonderfull Post, Pat!

    I really liked the post about “Unbelievable Stories of Niche Market Success” even thou many of us build niche sites online, it is cana eye opening on how people can make an incoming doing the same niche marketing offline.

  • http://www.megabizflakes.com Samuel

    Awesome links man! Thanks for sharing and keep the good work up.

    Thanks for the share Pat! Anything from the Warrior Forum is a gem. That’s where I learned a TON about info-marketing and IM in general. Definitely a place that everyone needs to be a part of.

  • http://experimentsinpassiveincome.com Moon Hussain

    Pat, I will def. be listening to Glen’s interview and reading the Warrior Forum SEO Post. Well done with the round-up.

    • http://www.virtualbusinesslifestyle.com Chris C. Ducker

      Will be nice to have you on the blog again, Moon.

      It’s been a while since I saw you in the comments section!


  • http://www.hectorjcuevas.com/ Hector Cuevas

    I really liked Corbett’s post. It was weird because it was published the day after I started contacting bloggers for the post I’m working on..

    Thanks for sharing these links. I’ll check them out..
    Have a great weekend

  • http://www.my4hrworkweek.com Eric | My 4-Hour Workweek

    Nice set of links here, Pat. This should make for some good reading material while I have my Saturday morning coffee tomorrow…

    I’m most excited about the Warrior Forum link – I’ve seen you and others reference it a number of times and for some reason, I haven’t bothered to read it yet.

  • http://www.mikeziarko.com Michael Ziarko

    That SEO FAQ is a gem of a find Pat. I don’t spend too much time on Warrior because I find myself getting overwhelmed with the sheer amount of info, so it makes it easier when you point me directly to the good stuff =)

  • http://www.artofwoodshopdesign.com Bobby

    I just bookmarked all of these. I like to use Instapaper. It adds a “read later” button, and it saves it for you as you look at other things online. Then, when you’re waiting in line or are otherwise bored, you can log onto Instapaper and read all your saved stuff easily.

  • http://www.pauldurotimi.com Ireti Paul

    Corbett’s post is WOW. I’m a fan of Glen too. Thanks for compiling such a wonderful list.


  • http://www.htmlcrazy.com Mandeep

    Great article pat. I liked robb Sutton when he said that you have to be unique and dedicated. I want to get to that point also. Very Helpful. Thanks.
