  1. I know that the third movie you find out that they named the protagonist after their dog, Indiana.

    Great post Brian. I just recently started my blog,, and I’ve been having a rise and fall of visitors. So far, no stickiness; however, I’m going to try some of the tips in the links above.

    Actually, to be honest with you, I read your Magnetic Headlines tips, and my traffic has gone up, as well as my Feedburner subscribers.

    Keep up the great work!

  2. Thanks Chubbs, but as far as the movie reference goes… sorry, no points for smart subtlety in this contest. 🙂

    You win Mike. And the congratulatory prize words are:

    Damn fine work.

  3. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was going to be my guess too… but in case that’s wrong, I’ll go with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. 😉 (same structure, but fire doesn’t rhyme with Gloom).

  4. What’s not to LOVE about Brian Clark? Thanks my friend, for the cross-pollination of your readers with ours.

  5. They are definitely linked and lots of the same principles apply to both. Perhaps the way to define them is simply to focus on optimization versus promotion. Optimization, to me, refers to many of the changes relating to the content of a site or blog to help it rank higher. Promotion would be more about marketing through networking, linking and other activities. Either way, I’m sure in time the right terminology will emerge.

  6. I’ll accept the DFW ( Damn Fine Work ) Award on the premise that I get to actually name the real recipient and that, my friend, is you – Brian Clark, Blogger of Great Copy, Esq.

  7. BTW – Can you get that wild man, Pearson to add you in a “Subscribe To Comments” plugin ?

    I don’t want to subscribe to an RSS feed for a single post, but the freakin’ comments here are better than a lot of blogs !

  8. Love your resources — though I’m already participating in Darren’s list contest.

    Brian, you should try submitting something. It’d be interesting to see what kind of headlines you come up with..
