What James Altucher Taught Us About Silver and TravelZoo

The community of Stocktwits Bloggers ended up throwing around a pretty entertaining comment thread on the topic of linkback/search engine optimization.   James Altucher’s headline naming technique was mocked/honored at length, as we sarcastically discussed the best article topics to tap into page view manias.

Josh Brown got the discussion started by joking

“Also, be sure to write a post about Travelzoo or Silver each day for optimal linkback performology,”

Which was hilarious, because I had JUST hit “publish” on my post talking about not just Silver and $TZOO, but also $OPEN, $LULU and $SINA – the high flyers – the momo marauders – the Friggin Picassos.

Altucher, master of this domain, replied that he’d made an effort to write

“4 billionaires buying SIRI stock” but that he couldn’t find 4 such billionaires doing so.

The Reformed Broker came back with 3 more titles, partly inspired by Altucher-ian influences:

“Will Travelzoo be added to the Dow?”

“The Day I Almost Recommended Travelzoo to Tupac’s Mom”

“The Ten Things You Need To Know About Travelzoo”

and James added:

“33 Unusual Things Travelzoo Taught me About Steve Jobs”
