There is a great new competition over at Wcx where bloggers can win a hundred dollars and a month of free advertising. All they have to do is to post there best blog on www.workconnexions.com to enter. Work connexions focuses on business development and has become a resource community center of information to grow your business. With high page rank and quality information just posting on the website will increase your Internet presence. Success!
As part of an experiment and also to demonstrate a page only exist on the internet if it is linked. I have uploaded a html file on to a server that is not linked by any other page. This page contains the following text “Congratulations You have found the competition page of Leo Cussons’s blog” It also contains a code. The person that finds this page will win free advertising on Work Connexions worth £122.50 GBP. I suspect that as this page is not linked that no one will find it. I will confirm if that is the case next month. Success.
Work connexions is doing a month long competition where we will increase traffic to your website. In connexion with a special advertising campaign on the internet we are going to increase your page rank. All you have to do is write a blog post or put a link on your website about Work Connexions and then register on the site and post a free classified.

Seth Godin, has posted an interesting blog post on his site: http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2008/01/encyclopedia-sa.html
And CNET hates Google
And newspapers hate Craigslist
And music labels hate Napster
And used bookstores hate Amazon
And so do independent bookstores.
Dating services hate Plenty of Fish
And the local shoe store hates Zappos
And courier services hate fax machines
And monks hate Gutenberg
Apparently, technology doesn’t care who you hate.
I have noticed this too, and would also add recruitment companies for Linkedin and possible Facebook too. Still change is coming.
Another interesting follow up to this post can be found here:
“Would Linux be so popular if Microsoft didn’t hate it?
Would Eminem be so popular with kids if their parents didn’t hate it?
Would the Sex Pistols have been so popular if they weren’t hated by the establishment?
Would the Vigin Atlantic have done so well if British Airways didn’t hate them?
Would the cheap airlines have done so well if the flagship carriers didn’t hate them?”
My comment… I thought the blog was going to go the other way and he was going to say. “Do not start a business if everyone hates you” but he did not.
