Christmas Decorations

Happy Friday and End-of-November, folks! Putting this post together, I started to write about Christmas creep and ask if people are being bombarded with elves and ornaments yet, but then I had the eerie sensation that I had already written that – last year, when I wrapped up our best of November. But I was wrong. I actually wrote about that two years ago. On November 30, 2010:

Do you hear sleigh bells ring-a-ling, ding-ding-ding-a-ling too? Thanksgiving has come and gone, which means it's officially open season Christmas season in the eyes of the American advertising industry. Prepare yourself for the Xmas onslaught! (I once had "Here We Go A-Wassailing" stuck in my head for like three years. No joke.)

Good to know I’m still original. So what was our #1 post of November that year? It was “Real Life Link Building: Three Real Relationships You Can Turn Into Virtual Votes” by Tom Demers. And in 2011, November’s most popular post was “How Does the AdWords Auction Work?” (a handy visual guide to the AdWords system). I’m happy to see that both of these posts are still valuable. Evergreen content FTW!

Fast-forward to this year. Here are our top blog posts from the past 30 days:

See you next week!
