Guy Kawasaki, one of my marketing heroes, emailed me yesterday to tell me that that this blog kicks ass. Seriously? Surprisingly, and ultimately, yes. He selected AttentionMax as one of the top marketing sites for his Alltop content aggregator. What exactly is Alltop?
We help you explore your passions by collecting stories from â€œall the topâ€ sites on the web. Weâ€™ve grouped these collections â€” â€aggregationsâ€ â€” into individual Alltop sites based on topics such as environment, photography, science, celebrity gossip, fashion, gaming, sports, politics, automobiles, and Macintosh. At each Alltop site, we display the latest five stories from thirty or more sites on a single page â€” we call this â€œsingle-page aggregation.â€
You can think of an Alltop site as a â€œdashboard,â€ â€œtable of contents,â€ or even a â€œdigital magazine rackâ€ of the Internet. To be clear, Alltop sites are starting points â€” they are not destinations per se. The bottom line is that we are trying to enhance your online reading by both displaying stories from the sites that youâ€™re already visiting and helping you discover sites that you didnâ€™t know existed. In this way, our goal is the â€œcessation of Internet stagnation.â€
I told Guy that I don’t have huge audience reach, although I do have high quality readers from interactive marketing, media, search and analytics industries. (You’re reading this — aren’t you?) He said: “We’re the same way. So far, anyway. :-)”
Thanks, Guy! Check out the entire Alltop marketing list.
Importantly, I don’t take myself that seriously.
