The Kelsey Group’s Interactive Local Media/SES Local event in Los Angeles in November will feature a keynote conversation with Jason Calacanis, whose critical views of SEO have earned him few friends in the industry.
On Monday I blogged about the Jason Calacanis challenge and how he received a 21% increase in traffic with only 10% of the changes being made so far. Many people have been wondering what the 10% of the changes were and some have even blogged that it could have been a fluke.
Just to give everyone a better understanding of how I calculated the 21% increase, I first took the 6 days before SEO was done and compared it to 6 other days roughly 20 days after SEO was implemented. The data before SEO was done was a bit biased because on one of the days his traffic doubled because he wrote on the Oscars and the following day his traffic returned to normal. On that Monday, if he had normal traffic and did not blog on the Oscars his search traffic due to SEO would have increased by over 40%.

The monetization of Wikipedia has been the subject of much debate, and even a little venom spitting, for the past several months. With reports surfacing that funding for the user-edited encyclopedia may be running out, will Wikians finally embrace an ad-supported business model?
According to Alexa, Wikipedia is the twelfth most popular site on the entire Internet. Within six months, however, the entire site could be non-existent.
Reports this week of a deal between Apple Computer and Cingular, coupled with Apple’s new speech-recognition patent, have rekindled rumors of the company developing the much talked about iPhone. Would the advent of such a device herald a subsequent launch of wireless podcasting?
CalacanisCast, a weekly media, tech, finance podcast will launch in November as part of the PodTech network. The show’s sponsorships, thus far totaling $100,000, will be donated to Bay Ridge Preparatory School to provide private schooling for underprivileged children.
