Gifts From The Mad Cow


I have to admit it, that cow is one sneaky animal. He knew that if he were to sent me a gift, I wouldn’t blog about it. So what does he do? He gets in via the back door by sending my daughter some birthday presents. He didn’t sent any normal gifts either. No, that grass eating mooer sent two I Love John Cow baby shirts and a bib!

My wife thought they were awesome and made sure Sally wore it for today’s Dot Com Pho. Everyone at Pho gave the cow props for coming up with the evil marketing idea.

The cow’s Million Euro Wiki is doing pretty good too. It has sold 53 pages so far and will be rewarding another iPod Touch to a page owner (I won the first one).

I noticed that my wiki page is the second most popular page after the main page. So far the page has produced one sign up for Text Link Ads and made $25. Three more sign ups and I’ll break even. Well, I don’t even need three more since I used my own JohnChow coupon code to buy the page for $90. I am pretty sure I will be giving my iPod touch to someone who purchased a page using the JohnChow coupon code.

Anyway, thanks for the birthday gift cow! Here’s a picture of Sally wearing the bib.

    When you sent me this link, I was hoping he sent over a bundle of delicious steaks and some A1 to match, but hey, this is just as cool hah

    1. Seopher says:

      That’s actually very clever; and sally looks very cute in her John Cow gear. Good work cow!

      1. you sneaky bastard… John Cow.. haha.

          1. Kanute says:

            Its all about the marketing….

        1. Yes, so now we know how to get into John Chow’s head…through the love of his daughter! 😈

    2. awflasher says:

      I am sure john will receive tons of gifts after this post …..

  2. Ricardo says:

    Nice gifts, John.

    PS: Your PR just dropped!

    1. Steven says:

      Dropped is an understatement. My toolbar won’t even show any PR rating for him saying it’s unavailable.

      1. GPT Sites says:

        Your toolbar must be out of date … it’s a PR 5.

      2. Is that because you’re looking at the PR for this last post only?

    2. Eric says:

      Yeah – I am seeing the blog at PR5

      1. Israel says:

        thats what i see too.

        1. Looks like a PR update might finally be on the way – people have been reporting updates from some Google IPs but now they’ve all been switched off/firewalled…

  3. Ritu says:

    Nice gift Cow, you know how to sell yourself

  4. She’s looking very cute John 🙂

  5. Gdog says:

    That bib is cute on Sally…pretty cool gifts! I’ll try to meet up with you guys for pho in a couple of weeks. 😉

  6. Thats a one damn sneaky cow, you are right on it John. And Sally sure does look adorable on that baby moo shirt 😉

  7. Shaun Carter says:

    The cow never ceases to amaze me…. pure marketing genius!

  8. Evil marketing… nice doughter in nice dress. 😛

  9. Wow, the designs and thought was very cool, great job!

  10. CatherineL says:

    Well Sally looks really cute in those. I bet those evil cows could make quite a bit of milk money if they started selling those bibs.

  11. Bob says:

    Sally makes that bib look good!

    1. But how did you know when her birthday was/is? Is there some evil cow stalking going on?

      1. Nice question Paul, I don’t remember either John blogging about her Bday (maybe on the really old posts..? haven’t went that back tho).

  12. KingJacob says:

    They look really good, what printer’d you use Senor Cow?

  13. goldfries says:

    Get a few more kids to dorn those cute outfits! 🙂 It’ll be very sweet!

  14. Dan says:

    The cow got in via John’s backdoor?
    Too much information

    1. Word Hugger says:

      haha, you dirty minded person.

  15. David Beroff says:

    Cute kid, John! Though I’m very surprised you didn’t link to … (there, I just did so for you); never too young to start building PageRank! 🙂

    Or someone could even set up 😈

  16. jeanzei says:

    ➡ i sooo thought you said Mancow! dang. looking for news here! hi johnchow!

  17. KCLau says:

    Anymore book offer?

  18. Webworm says:

    This Cow is not a bad “cow”… 😉

    Six sense feeling…some relation between Chow & Cow :mrgreen:

  19. Neil says:

    Vey cute, i`m guessing Cows selling these from his site …. better get over there for a look.

  20. I think cow is up to something. The euro and dollar wikis show the same reach in Alexa

  21. browie says:

    I have a family photo on my girls blog of my shirts and we just marker’d a white one for her.

  22. mariam says:

    Heh, that’s cute. I like how John Cow does it with humor. However, before I jump on the bandwagon with MEW, I want to know how he’s going to help the page owners. From my experience with the MDW, just because you get the JC effect, doesn’t mean visitors will necessarily visit other pages. What plans does the Cow have for deep interlinking and SEO development?

    1. Although John Cow is sort of a copy-cat but he does it so well. If some cases, I have to say that he is better than the real John. Sorry John Chow (not John Cow),

      1. mariam says:

        I really don’t mind that he’s a copy cat. I have seen other copy cat sites but he does it with style so I know he knows how to market. But that only lines his pocket with money. Does he have something ingenious for the page owners after he’s taken their money?

  23. Holy crap – that is sneaky!

  24. Israel says:

    your baby looks adorable. would you put some shirts on of my site if i sent them? seriously. shoot me a mail with your address.

    the cow isnt sneaky at all. its all part of john and his partnership.

  25. Secret Place says:

    Your daughter so cute! 🙂

  26. Ginene says:

    She is sooo cute! That was a clever idea. He knew you couldn’t resist if he did something nice for your babygirl. 🙂

  27. lyricsreg says:

    now that’s advertising. In a few years, many kindergarten’ers will visit the site 🙂

  28. Wayne Liew says:

    The scenario where making friends with your competitor. Lesson learnt! 😈

  29. Your daughter looks very lovely! Happy Birthday!

  30. Wahlau.NET says:

    it is just much cheaper compare to a $400 review me…haha

    1. Googlelady says:

      But is nice technique…Chow I am sure you will get more clothes LOL

  31. 3cpxbro says:

    has anyone set up a johncow clone site?

  32. Cute, I mean both your daughter and the Cow’s marketing prowess!

  33. Etienne Teo says:

    That was some sneaky marketing from the cow.. :mrgreen:

  34. You’ve got to admit that the clothing were pretty good looking. It was very well designed.

  35. Try and take this in:
    John Chow is not John Cow
    A Cow is not a Mr. Chow
    And a cow is cow
    who is John Cow
    but no John Chow

    1. Googlelady says:

      Michael, nice COWem

  36. Googlelady says:

    Nice marketing the cow hitted again! 🙄

  37. Kemal Inanc says:

    Nice gifts, i have get one for my baby :mrgreen:

  38. Zeila Rich says:

    I think it’s just a waste of money to send john chow the branded apparel. all readers of JohnChow knows about JohnCow already.

    JohnCow should try other big bloggers like ShoeMoney.

    He has the T-Shirt friday I think

    My 2 Cents Worth

  39. Klaudio says:

    Haha 😀 nice gifts

  40. Jeff Quipp says:

    Way to think outside the box cow! This is marketing at its finest!

  41. Kanute says:

    What a nice “griffe”. Cow could put it on the market. Wicked.

  42. esofthub says:

    I had to chuckle about that maneuver. The Cow took a page out of JC’s innovative marketing toolkit.

  43. Cash Quests says:

    I hope Sally is ready for the amount of clothes people are about to send her! Every item with a nice little “.com” label.

    1. Zeila Rich says:

      what happened to your website, kumiko?

  44. John Cow says:

    If you want your own cool cow goodies, we’ve opened up a shop:

  45. Hats off to the champion of internet parody comedy! Long live John Cow!

    1. McBilly says:

      Haha. Yeah. Great marketing Cow! 😈 You never cease to amaze me. Also, great choice for a model!
