Doing a search for the most popular submissions on Digg and YouTube that made it to the homepages the past year.

Obviously, his campaign is using those controversial social media promoters. But this show how well it can work.

He still is running last in the primaries – but it still gets publicity and it shows how Social Media can be influenced by those with big bucks.

Hiring members to vote for or view their client's submissions has done to social media what expensive SEO has done to search engines results.

I've noticed too. The Ron Paul SMO/SEO campaign is not bad because it's SMO/SEO but it's bad because it's bad SMO/SEO. It's spammy and wacky. Thus people turn away after noticing.

Apple does the same on Digg and gets away with it but Ron Paul is too ugly for it. He is a blatant reactionary.
