  • Hey Timo,
    I didn’t have time to read all of these resources but i clicked on
    “The “Barack Obama” Formula: How the President gets traffic to his website ” link.
    and it was a Big “Aha” moment for me too! awesome stuff and i love the quality of the content.
    Maybe you should consider including less links in roundup posts, it’s confusing, there’s allot of links and no time for them all, and i hate to chose randomly.
    Many thanks.
