Now I know KLM Club China, we have quite some friends there, but what is F&B and Fashion business? Globe Forum Business Network was new to me as well, I signed up and I must say it looks quite nice! Will do an update on what that does to our on-going Chinese Networking endeavor soon.

That’s it for now, oh and BTW, China Law Blog added us to their Blogroll, do check their site out on http://www.chinalawblog.com/2007/12/china_sucess_stories_new_blogr.html , it is excellent!


PS If XING and LinkedIn is your thing, look me up: find a direct link in the menu on the right.

China SEO look at social media marketing

Still absolutely excited by the way traffic to http://www.chinasuccessstories.com/ is increasing, I just read a 100% non-Chinese post by SEOmoz that perfectly describes the way I feel about the importance of social communities. For your website ranking, appreciation / valuation and ultimately: traffic.

It complies with what I pointed out in ‘Long live social bookmark exchange’, fully agrees with the added value of sites like Facebook, and underlines the importance of sites like LinkedIn and del.ico.us as described in 'Del.icio.us the China sequel’.

So without wanting to risk dropping too many links here, go ahead and read this: a truly magnificent article on the Basics of Social Media Marketing. -> http://www.seomoz.org/blog/a-visual-tour-through-the-basics-of-social-media-marketing
