Recently I attended Affiliate Summit ’08 to learn more about the powerful tools and great companies that we can work with to help grow the Zazzle Affiliate program and the Zazzle Associate Program. One of the talks that I found interesting was the “Future Proof SEO Efforts” presented by Wil Reynolds. SEO, which stands for Search Engine Optimization, is the idea that your website or blog needs to include certain things to increase the amount of organic or natural traffic (non-paid placements) in major search engines like Google.
Wil talks about how to make sure you are building a site that is easily “crawlable” by search engines, and with good content, so that you can get the most out of natural search engine traffic. This means that you should keep some of his principles in your head when posting to your blog or building a new web page that links to your gallery, because the more traffic you get to your gallery, the more possible sales. Check out this video from Wil about SEO best practices. Also check out the Wil Reynolds; del.icio.us page for more great SEO tips.
Also check out the Zazzle Associate Program to learn more as to how to make money from referrals from your websites.

Black History Month is coming to a close, and I feel like it’s time to reflect on some of the great designs on Zazzle that honor the people, movements, and ideas that helped end slavery, oppression and promoted civil rights around the world.
Check out this famous print of Jackie Robinson at bat.
Zazzle’s Hulton archive collection of prints has more prints, like the I have a dream print, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. portrait print, or Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. marching for civil rights print. Also check out some of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. t-shirts that have been made in his honor.
In this time, one can’t help but think that the presidential race between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is proof of the progress this country continues to make toward equality and justice for all.

Recently, The Humane Society of the United States broke shocking news about the state of cattle treatment in a meat processing plant in Southern California, and is prompting an investigation by the federal government into the ethical treatment of animals used for human consumption. Read more about the horrifying abuse of animals used for school lunch programs with HSUS’s undercover operation and video (very graphic) story.
Thankfully HSUS was there to make sure these atrocities were documented so that they will never happen again.
Happy Valentine’s Day from everyone at Zazzle! We hope you have a great day and here is a big ‘ol Kiss from us (in the form of SWAK postage from Amy Smart).

Obama is tearing it up in the primaries and everyone is pitching in to give him the support. This video (below) from Youtube, features Will.i.am, and a bunch of other celebrities singing to Obama’s landmark “Yes We Can” Speech, and has been viewed over 3 million times.
The Zazzle community has also responded to the demand for Obama’s “Yes We Can,” and has made some amazing Yes We Can t-shirts. Check out a few of the shirts below, or go to the Election Center at Zazzle to see all the Obama t-shirts, as well as t-shirts for the other candidates.
