“Free Advertising?” Not on my blog…

Ahem….

I will NOT be patronizing the following companies, since “they” routinely post links to their sales via my blog (no matter how kewl, bitchin’ or classy your products may be):

  • Michael Kors
  • The NorthFace
  • Beats by Dr. Dre
  • Luis Vuitton
  • Uggs
  • Timberland
  • Coach
  • Burberry
  • Nike (OK…I may break my rule here)

I’m not sure how you are remunerating these erstwhile posters, but you need a new system. And, yes, I realize these are probably bots but someone is controlling them…and you dear, expensive branders, have more legal power than I to do something about them.

BTW…SeoOptimizationGuide.com/ You ignorant f***s! You and your kind are exactly the reason I advise my clients not to employ an SEO firm unless they are doing major ad word or pay-for-click work. Yes…your little post about coding got deleted….  Clients: Don’t forget to use your metatags and write for the web – not for yourself.

And shame on WordPress for not automatically blocking these users from posting to anyone’s blog/site. What kind of web hacks are you? All matter of other social media sites can block IP addresses…why can’t you?

Yes…I cross post this to the rest of my social media.

Marnell Corrao Website

Marnell Corrao Archivehttp://www.marnellcorrao.com    (archived: note many of the graphics were not captured however, navigation and content are correct.)

Marnell Corrao, a global architectural firm, specializing in entertainment properties, required a sophisticated look and feel to reflect their position in the industry. Utilizing Flash (a relatively new technology in 2000), GS Design captured the firm’s unique and highly successful approach to construction. Leveraging my commercial building expertise gained while with Johnson Controls, I proposed adding a Portfolio section giving users Marnell Corrao project snapshots. Additionally, GS Design developed a CMS for News, Career and Portfolio sections.

Today, the Marnell Corrao site is still visually stunning and easily navigable. And, the Portfolio section….still there. Sometimes, good content never goes out of style.

This e-commerce site was built with a CMS, allowing the website owners to update merchandise information on the fly. Not a new concept today. However, this site was developed in 2000-2001. There were no off-the-shelf or cloud-based CMS programs. The original site was programmed in perl and hosted on Linux/Apache servers. But when the client asked to have the website integrate with their accounting systems, the entire site was migrated to an asp-driven backend.
