…is going to get a ton of clicks to his site over the next 24 hours and probably a ton of hilarious emails too.  Getting a presidential candidate to use you in his talking points is a great SEO strategy.  Tip of the gray hat to you Joe The Plumber.

    You would think Joetheplumber.com would be on page one of Google for “plumber” by now. Joetheplumberseattle.com is #10 from what I see. The city name domain is not a bad idea if you can get a link from the main jtp domain.

    Hey Joe – you’ve got a great link-selling business on your hands! :)

    And David, I expect that you will soon be over the $250K threshold with your new domain strategy.

    Thanks Andrew – Actually I’m quite happy being small potatoes and working from home with no hassle.

    I admire some of the name SEO guys (including you) but can do without the pressure 😉

    Good for you David. Then again, Confucius say the only pressure is that which you place upon yourself.

    I have to mention this just cause every single time i see one of those ads with “I am Joe the pluber..” I want to shoot my self.
    But, does McCain think we are all idiots? about 1% of the people out there make over $250,000 a year – so no increase in taxes for 99% of us. If you get an increase cause of Obama then good for you!!
    As Chapel would say ” your RICH B@#!@”

    Jeremy – It gets on my nerves too.

    I make about $40,000 a year doing SEO – since 1997. I’m happy enough. My Missus makes double that I do + bens but she is happy that I make a “bit” going commando

    My family are all Obama (I am not a citizen – good ol’ British boy)

    I’m just riding a wave and people that call me are laughing so I have practically won them over right away – so thanks to Joe The Plumber 😉
