    Really though, whey protein is supposed to be used as an accessory not a crutch.

    Don't get me wrong- I drink whey protein (or egg white+ gelatin) with fruit shakes a lot when I have zero time to cook or when I have zero appetite for real food due to stress. I just don't see whey as a good permanent solution, day in day out.
    He doesn't need very much on-page SEO. He has a forum full of yuppies to buy his stuff and very healthy markups heh.

      The blog tags, key words etc. were carefully selected to target an audience that would be searching on the internet for supplements.

      Basically this post is useless because Mark was directed by the multivitamin people to mention certain words for the purpose of making more hits.

      Also the purposeful mentioning of his protein smoothie hyperlinked to his product increases the SEO ranking for his product when the words "protein smoothie" is searched on google. That hyperlink selection isn't just for lols.

      So in conclusion, it was a mashup of Mark marketing his product and the advertiser's product. It was all a big advertisement.

      I would put more weight on his non-sponsored stuff in terms of "what Mark eats."
      I am confused Turquoise, what post are you referring to?

          Oh OK, my bad, was looking at a couple other links in later posts and didn't see sponsoring.....however, I still think that post has mostly good information in it, unless Mark is lying, it gives a pretty good synopsis on his daily eating habits......and me personally I just let those hyperlinks and ads bounce off of me, I am so used to seeing them on everything everywhere all the time! To dismiss it out of hand as one big advertisement and therefore don't pay any attention to any of the content? Respectfully, I just can't embrace that......

            Lol. Oh so innocent. I used to write sponsored posts (for fashion not nutrition) and so maybe I am skeptical but...

              He did a food diary for a week and it looked pretty primal.

                    Me either, very now and then I'll pop open the blog and just scan through for the link love posts, but 9/10 I either have already seen the info elsewhere or don't care.
