Think a bit deeper and build your landing pages for multiple purposes.
Minimalist Internet Marketing: My Personal Guide Minimalism seems to be a hot topic these days and rightly so. People like clutter-free living and getting things done. After listening to a recent podcast between minimalist Leo Babauta and problogger, Darren Rowse, I started thinking about how I could apply minimalism to my internet marketing operations.

Google+ Will Succeed Where FriendFeed, Buzz and Wave Failed. But Will It Go Mainstream? [10+ Links] You can find the Google+ thread I found this image of Tyler Durden on here. My 10 Links posts are in a way a homage to the original Google search results, which were always 10 links. That isn’t really the case anymore but the remnants are still there. With all the *Buzz* about Google+ it seemed like a forgone conclusion that I would do a 10 Links post.
