If you’re new here, welcome! And thanks for subscribing to Get Elastic. Friday is Blogger Digest day where we highlight posts from other blogs that are of value and interest to online retailers and Internet marketers.

Just a heads up, Jason and I will be away next week at Search Engine Strategies San Jose. But never fear, we'll still be cranking out content for you every day. To run with the search engine theme, we'll have a 4 part series next week on holiday SEO for online retailers. So stay tuned.

  • Rand Fishkin shares a link building a-ha moment: buy misspellings of your domain and redirect them to your site. If anyone links to you with the wrong spelling, you still get the link credit. Rand has examples including 600+ links pointing to wikpedia.org.

  • Chris Marriott reminds us that it's high time to plan for the holiday season's e-communications. Indeed. Time to kick off the flip flops and get cracking on Christmas marketing. Again, come back next week for 4 full days of holiday SEO tips for online retailers.
