Before we get going with the link list, I want to announce the replay of our paid search webinar with Ryan Gibson of the Rimm-Kaufman Group is now available. You can also catch up with all of our webinars (we've got a full year's worth!) in our ecommerce webinar archive.

We'll kick off this week's roundup with "I'm Gonna Git You Spamma!" Via eROI Interactive.

Shut yo' mouth!

  • Curious on what the payoff of "Digg-baiting" is? SocialAlerter shares the results of its own little study on how many links Digg can get you. By tracking Yahoo backlinks for over 1000 stories that "went hot" on Digg for 30 days, the average number of links was 1167! Granted, many of these links will come from low-quality scrapers and splogs but that's still an impressive number.
  • The Top 25 Facebook Pages include the usual supsects - Barack, Hillary, Justin Timberlake... but there are some brands mixed with the bands. Kudos to Victoria's Secret Pink, Apple Students and Nutella for attracting a Facebook following.
