Link Karma 2: Link Harder

  1. Great point on the “keep” vs. “retain” headline. My first thought was “convert” but that didn’t seem straight forward enough.

    BTW, movie sequel is Die Hard 2: Die Harder

  2. Great job Jason! People, you’ve got to really be quick on your feet (or feed) to win the Link Karma “guess that movie reference” game.

    I think I’m going to have to make these a bit tougher though. 🙂

  3. I must admit I got lucky, since I got an email notification that you pingbacked to my blog post.

    In any case, keep on keeping on.

  4. Not fair! But I admit a great way to pull in visitors!

    IMHO, too many links in that post there. I would bookmark the post and read it at leisure (read: on a weekend)

    But then, that’s just an opinion. 🙂

    Erm, you’ll see the words ‘Great post’ sometime later in the week from me, I guess. Or should I give them in advance here?


  5. Yep, not fair. New rule — if you score a link in Link Karma, you’re not allowed to play the “guess that movie reference” game.

  6. Thanks for the link, Brian, you’re a star! We try to keep the risque to a bare minimum at Knickers as the focus is on lingerie information and shopping — my mom reads the site, so I can’t post anything too racy!

  7. One interesting note:

    A friend and I created in May. We put it on the web, but we haven’t quite finished the design, so we haven’t fully publicized it yet. Our idea was simple: a one million person club, anyone can sign up for $1, we show the most recent people on the front page, we issue certificates of Coolness, and a few other features.

    About a month later, has appeared with…some uncanny similarities to our site. (They did come up with the word “Awesome” on their own.)

    I guess this is how competition works.

    To the fellas over at – On the incomprehensible chance that your idea is actually as original as you claim it to be, congratulations. Either way, I wish you the best of luck.

  8. Hey Jeremy. Well, the web is a big place… I honestly had never heard of your site.

    And I likely might never have heard of the Awesome site either if Jim hadn’t let me know about it.

    There is something to be said for old-fashioned networking, I guess.

    Good luck with Coolest Million. 🙂

  9. Haha, wow, almost a year has passed since my whiny, immature comment a few up on this thread.

    I can’t believe how differently I feel about it now. I think I was just frustrated at my own shortcomings in executing the coolestmillion site. Thank you for your response, Brian – you are so totally right. The internet is a huuuuge place, and I’ve developed an appreciation for that. I DO acknowledge the possibility that both sites are totally original, because it definitely is possible. I feel really bad for that last comment, but I guess it’s nice to see that I’ve grown a bit since then. I’ll get back to America in a couple months, and then maybe I’ll reawaken Coolest Million. Either way, the web is a big enough place for both sites to fill up and succeed.
