Do you ever find yourself doing anything completely ass backwards? I just had a guy tell me he's looking for advertisers on his website...that does NOT exist yet. It reminded me when I started IM. I read all this stuff about how SEO can take a while to get your site ranked, so I figured, "I better get it started now!". I hadn't even added any content to my site. All it was was a domain. Now I have backlinks ranking higher than that site, as I completely forgot about it. I'd like to hear other stories of people who have made their noob mistakes and aren't afraid to admit it.
