  • Moms did not respond to the ad by racing out for Motrin. They were offended by the suggestion that they carry their babies to be “fashionable”. They were outraged at the idea that they look “crazy”. They vehemently disagreed with the phrasing that “in theory” carrying your baby around is a good idea. By Saturday evening they were the most tweeted subject on Twitter. By Sunday there was a nine minute video on YouTube, to the tune of Danny Boy, showing screen shots of the outraged twitter posts interspersed with photos of Moms carrying babies in slings. Bloggers began calling for boycotts. Bloggers asked their readers to alert the mainstream press. A few voices chimed in to say they didn’t find the ad to be that big a deal. There are a few more examples here and here.) By Sunday afternoon a few bloggers and tweeters had gotten the ad agency that created the ad on the phone, to find they didn’t know a lot about Twitter and didn’t seem to have a clue that there was so much anger piling up online.

    We are in the process of removing this ad from all media. It will, unfortunately, take a bit of time to remove it from our magazine advertising, as it is on newsstands and in distribution.
    Thank you for your feedback. It’s very important to us.”

    Getting “juiced”
    The amount of Google Juice you earn for a link is determined by a closely guarded secret… that we’ve pried from a cold clammy hand to deliver to you here:
    Popularity: Old school page ranking. The higher rated a referring site, the more juice you will earn. Translation – target popular sites.
    Relevance: Google will also compare the content between your and referring site. The more similar the content, the more juice.
    Link Text: Often overlooked, but very powerful. The actual content of the anchor text itself will impact SEO. Make sure to use your tag words in the link itself.
