Diary of a Webhead

August 12, 1996

I'm getting hooked on this Internet marketing stuff! I stayed up all night surfing, looking for ways to publicize the business. I found quite a few aquarium-related sites and checked to see if they would be willing to "trade links" with me-to place my URL on their links page in exchange for my returning the favor. I also found a site called "WebStep 100" that lists the top 100 places to promote my site for free, including search engines Yahoo!, AltaVista and WebCrawler. I worked my way through the top 20. Tomorrow I'll run searches to see if any have listed us yet, though Yahoo! did warn it sometimes takes several weeks.
