Widget bait is another envelope-pushing technique. In it, somebody who wants to promote a Web site creates a component that can be added to somebody's Web site, such as a blog. In Inman's case, it was quizzes to tell bloggers if they were being too verbose and other subjects. The code included a link back to the dating site. Inman's trouble came when he also added links to his parent company's efforts to get search results for "payday loans" and "cash advance," he said in a blog posting, ultimately gathering more than half a million inbound links.

Link-baiting also is alive and well as a way to generate inbound links. With it, a site publishes provocative or entertaining content and tries to encourage word of mouth publicity. With all the bloggers in the world, a sufficiently witty, inflammatory, or inane post can generate a lot of inbound links.

Use marketing automation:  When it comes to engagement marketing, market automation programs are essential tools that not only take care of a lot of repetitive tasks but also help a business remain attached to its customers. These programs automate email newsletter services that maintain ongoing connections with customers across every one of their digital interactions with the company. They also offer a lot of valuable functions in addition to email. For instance, they can identify and engage buyers online, filtering leads based on their levels of interest, and pass them onto sales. They also will send follow-ups to customers who leave after viewing your site's checkout cart without making a purchase. Prices vary, depending on how fancy you want to get. Some worthwhile entrants include MailChimp, Hubspot, Marketo and GetResponse.

It's well known that Google wields tremendous economic power for those trying to use the Internet as a business tool: high search results can send customers to an out-of-the-way bed-and-breakfast. The SEO industry has sprung up to help customers find ways to get their Web sites high in search results, and its practitioners are always testing new methods.

At the same time, customers often take an indirect route as part of that digital buying journey. No matter the platform, that puts the onus on small businesses to find and connect with customers, not the other way around.

With almost $31 billion in retail sales last year alone, China's yearly 24-hour 11/11 Global Shopping Festival is now bigger than Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the weekend in between combined. Adobe Analytics predicts this year's five-day Thanksgiving weekend will drive about $29 billion in online sales. So, why have so few Americans even heard of Singles Day?

AOL's desire for more page views and revenue through a greater number of pieces of content is nothing new. The company currently operates, a "content mill" that finds writers to cheaply produce content that will rank highly in search results. It competes with similar services from Demand Media and Associated Content, and delivers the higher margins the leaked document seems to indicate AOL is after.

The problem with link bait is moving beyond the one-hit wonder phase, said Gabriel Goldenberg of SEO ROI, an SEO firm. For it to be effective, a marketer needs a means to seed the next round of interest, such as subscribers keeping up to date with RSS feeds or an e-mail list.

Because today's shoppers can access information literally at their fingertips, engaging with them on a variety of digital touchpoints becomes vital to a company's marketing success. That means companies need to bone up on the ins and outs of website design, social media, online advertising, email advertising and SEO.

Dubbed "The AOL Way," the 58-page document is reportedly designed to be a guide for editors, writers, and other content creators on what is expected of them in the coming months.

Looking to get started with a blog? More importantly, do you hope to monetize that blog? There are a lot of articles and books on blogging these days, many with limited or inaccurate information, but How To Make Money With Your Blog is one of the most complete and thorough publications on the subject that I've encountered. Authors Duane Forrester (a search engine marketer) and Gavin Powell (a technical writer) have covered all the important bases from identifying the best blogging platforms to covering the ins and outs of blogosphere culture. Oh yeah, and in between, they explain quite clearly the options for monetizing a blog.

Thus far, efforts to internationalize the big shopping day haven't caught on -- the date is Veterans Day in the US, Armistice Day in Europe. But in the end, it may come down to semantics and SEO: Whether you call it a Veterans Day sale, an early Black Friday sale or a Singles Day sale -- a deal's a deal, right?
