A Blog I Read Every Day – JohnChow.com

I’ve read JohnChow.com every day since October, so now it’s time to give back with a special shoutout post for anyone who isn’t up-to-speed on everything JohnChow.com.

John Chow is the “Dot Com Mogul” behind TheTechZone.com. In his personal blog, John covers everything from sports cars to fine dining, while candidly explaining exactly how he monetizes his blog, and built The Tech Zone into a success.

For anyone interested in learning SEO, SMO, Adsense, and the general business of the internet, here are my favorite John Chow posts to help you get started on digging through the nuggets on his site.

Top John Chow SEO Links

1. So You Want to be a Google Whore – The famous post
2. The Art of Link Baiting Links are currency
3. The Art of Link Development Links, links, links
4. How Much is a Link Worth? Ditto
5. How to Start a Tech Site Some great tips

To further help you get wise to JohnChow.com, you can check out his top posts or his investing category. For blogging his site, I may get a linkback. I hope this doesn’t undermine my credibility, because regardless of this bribe, JohnChow is a site I read religiously, just ask Zach.

Update: John Chow mentions ValueWiki as an example in his recent post, Better Anchor Text, Better Search Results. I blogged about ValueWiki’s High SERP here. Very interesting how much traffic we get to our two JohnChow.com posts, when I swear our blog has lots of other good content too!
