Feb. 28 the WRAL videos were picked up by Yahoo online as "featured videos" on Yahoo Entertainment video page. AOL too, but AOL isn't a searchable term at CH, so I don't have the specifics.

The Billboard article was picked up by a bunch of mainstream outlets, as well as blogs and websites big and small.

Here ya go couchie!

April 7: Call 919.883.5111 on your cellphone, and receive a message from Clay! At that point, if you hit 1 when asked, you will join Clay’s “team” and you’ll get two text messages from Clay on your cellphone. The first text message thanks you for joining the Clay Aiken mobile group; the second one gives a link to a web page where you can download a ringtone for your mobile phone of Clay saying:

"Hey, I know ya'll recognize this voice. Yep, that's right, it's Clay Aiken, and I'm telling you, you MUST pick up your phone right now. It's really important, you don't want to miss this call."

There will be other text messages as the album release gets closer to May 6.

I put some new stuff in bold, couchie.

All the Clear Channel radio station sites have OMWH "on demand," but it isn't advertised on the main pages yet and ads on the home pages of some stations' websites. They also have the "Spamalot" and "Producers" webisodes in Clay's video section.

Today a video of Clay recording OMWH showed up on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/mpd/permalink/m1P6JENNKMYU0Y. <-- That's the the permalink. The video is on the page with his album: On My Way Here.

The guptamedia.com google sponsored link is showing up with all kinds of Clay Aiken search results now. A larger color ad from Gupta Media is on MJ's blog, dial idol, and other sites. There's a banner ad on MySpace and LALATE, and other sites (with available spelled wrong). iTunes has a rotating banner ad in its Pop section, and iTunes sent out e-mails to many customers announcing the preorder.

RockonTV shows Clay on Kimmel as guest and performer on Friday Feb. 16, and this, "Tune in to see Clay Aiken on The Tonight Show (5/2), The View (5/8), Jimmy Kimmel (5/23)," is on this RCA page: Sony Music Box - Artist News.

SONY store e-mail includes a link to pre-order OMWH for $9.99. Cap of e-mail here: http://theclayboard.yuku.com/topic/23000/t...ludes-Clay.html.

There's an ad for the QVC appearance in TV Guide this week.

The rotating ads are Google-driven, so whatever they used as tags for them dictates where they show up. IOW, they are being pushed/pulled by sites based on the tags. I'm sure they're tagged with any variation of AI, Clay, Simon, OMWH, etc. They show up on my old WMS board, for example, because I stopped paying for ad-free ezBoard, so if you go over there, you'll see the banner, or the sidebar tag at random.
