not to miss links [1]Wenda Harris Millard “Flat is the new up [2].” quoted at the recent EconWomen conference. She touches on some of the consumer trends this 2008 holiday season [3].

25 Web Form Optimization Tips [4] – Covers most of the basics, a good reminder.

Usability of Toilet Paper [5] – who could resist this analysis, especially as my friend David Dalka [6] reminded me – P&G said at a search conference, no one would ever blog about toilet paper. Should it be bottom up or top down?

If you are so inclined you can read the review on the new book “The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur [7].”

Does your blogging move people [8]? My buddy Mitch Joel explores the BuzzLogic/JupiterResearch study finds blogs influence purchase behavior. I had the pleasure of meeting Sandra Ponce de León [9], Senior Director of Marketing of BuzzLogic, right before she presented this at the recent eMetrics Summit [10].

Google Notes [11] – a new plugin to add business data to Google Analytics data. I did add it to The Ultimate Google Analytics Plugins, Hacks & Tricks Collection [12].

Happy Halloween! Feel free to share some very interesting posts below in the comments (but please be considerate of our readers).
