I was perusing Portent’s new “tool,” the Content Idea Generator, and wondering for what awesome purpose I could use it. For what topic do I wish I could spin out endless content ideas?
And then it struck me. There is only one thing worth writing about endlessly, ad infinitum. Actually, one person.
If you don’t know Russ Jones, you should. Russ is a really big deal. (I wanted to cite references for that in footnotes, but all the citations for Russ’s greatness are from his own sources, so I figured you could find them easily enough.)
Russ is Virante‘s CTO. I’m not entirely certain what that stands for, but I’m guessing “Chief Terrificness Officer.” He’s really, really smart. I know because when I walk by his office, he’s always typing really fast, and all smart people are fast typers.
Russ is a genius at creating cool tools like RemoveEm (to help people get restored after a Google penalty) and nTopic (which helps content writers make their writing more topically relevant for search). In fact, he’s so good at making tools, I’ve heard people around the office refer to him as “The Tool.”
Russ Jones Content Titles
So I thought I should stop wasting so much time writing about social media and digital marketing and stuff, and just write about Russ. And that’s where the Portent Content Idea Generator becomes my best friend. I simply plugged “Russ Jones” into the tool, and it spun out great, gripping titles like these (a few altered slightly for grammar):

I can’t wait to get started! Those titles are so original, so unique, so “reach out and grab you through the screen,” that I just KNOW that even people who don’t know about Russ Jones will want to click and read the articles.
Heck, the titles are so great, people will probably just go ahead and retweet them without even reading. Just use the handy tweet links after each one to get ahead of the rush. And as a content producer, more tweets is all I ever wanted anyway.
I like your sense of humor. A spammy title-generator. To think how much time people waste reading crap that was only created to get an Adsense click, or a tweet. Just another reason to welcome the Google Authorship model.
