Google has introduced a new link tag, and it's ultimately designed to tell the search engines to ignore the link when it comes to calculating their algorithm. The intent to keep the link spammers from building their page ranks by posting links to their junk. But, will it work?

Rok Hrastnik has finally released his mammoth Ebook entitled Unleash the Marketing & Publishing Power of RSS
. Our own Quikonnex system is very well addressed in this book, but this Ebook is not just about Quikonnex. It's the most comprehensive book on the power of RSS published to date.
A recent trend has been for some "gurus", who've recently discovered RSS, to jump on the bandwagon and promote their own RSS How-To Ebooks. I've seen these go from $97.00 to $397.00. Not only have I seen erroneous information released, but they barely scratch the surface of the power this technology possesses. For $39.95, Rok provides you with 550 pages covering all aspects of this technology.
You don't want to miss the write up on Quikonnex under the topic of "Advanced RSS Marketing Capabilities in Conjuction with RSS Aggregators", page 247-251.
You won't regret this investment: Unleash the Marketing & Publishing Power of RSS

One of our new publisher's asked me some questions regarding how to use QuikView. In response to some of the questions, I put together this little orientation video on QuikView. It's not all inclusive of everything you can do with your QuikView sidebar, but it may view you a few ideas, that you've not discovered yet. Please excuse the Duhs & Uhs, I've never claimed to be a public speaker. QuikView Orientation Video
This is Part Two and the final installment of Luisa Saleco's interview with me on Quikonnex. If you read Part One, you'll see that Luisa asked me a lot of probing questions about Quikonnex. I'm personally thanking her in this public venue for helping me out by asking these questions. While I knew the answers, I realized through this process, that other Quikonnex users may have the same questions. I hope this help to clear up any questions Quikonnex members or visitors may have.
This is a little out of the ordinary for me, but I think you'll like it. Luisa Salcedo
, one of our Quikonnex members, interviewed me recently and asked a lot of questions about Quikonnex. Luisa works with BizToolReview.com
and they're running Part 1 of this interview in their current Ezine. You can read their current edition here at http://biztoolreview.com/ezine
or click on the read more link below to read it on Q.
I hoping my answers to her questions might answer some of yours.

For the publisher's that want to offer their readers a downloadable program, there's a new reader that just came to my attention. It's called Tristana. It's a small download, less than 900kb and so far seems to be pretty good. I even uploaded an OPML file to make it easier for new users of this program to access some of the Quikonnex channels (if you didn't get you channel listed in the new search directory I can't promise that you got included). Get Tristana here: Tristana
Make sure you check out the SHARE link on the site to find the OPML file. Additionally, this program is brandable for $95.00US. It's a Windows only program.
We're proving that moving from email delivery to RSS delivery for newsletters can actually increase traffic to a publisher's website. John Botscharow, the publisher of the 3R-Marketing newsletter, told us that since converting to Quikonnex's system of publishing that he's almost quadrupled the number of visitors to his website over the last month. A. Scott Piraino, the writer of ThePopulist column, started publishing on a Xanga.com blogging site in July 2003. He started publishing his articles on Quikonnex.com about a week ago and has significantly increased his readership. The main reasons for this is that Quikonnex.com provides an automatically generated RSS feed and when articles are posted to Quikonnex.com the publisher has the option of automatically pinging Weblogs.com, something the Xanga.com site did not provide him.
