Discover, Bookmark And Share Real-World Locations And Events With Grafetee

Giuseppe Mauriello: Grafetee is finnish startup focused on people using location based bookmarking about their geo-location, need, and interest.

 

From official website:

"1)Discover events, places, services and photos around you;
 2)Bookmark real-world events and places - nearby locations with the mobile app or any place or event on any website with the browser bookmarklet - for later reference.
 3) Share your discoveries with your friends - either via in-app functionality or use the app to mirror your Grafetee content to your Facebook timeline.

 

Free, no ads, no registration required!

 

 

From review article on PandoDaily:

"Grafetee has officially launched. The company’s apps, available for free on the App Store and Play Store, make it easier for users to find, bookmark, and share places of interest with their friends, family, and the Finnish police force.

 

Essentially, Grafetee is to places as the bookmarks folder is to Web pages. Users can scout out a few locations that they’d like to visit – for, say, vacationing or house-hunting – and, with the click of a button, save that location to their devices. Though this sounds (and is) fairly simple, it’s much more convenient than finding a location on the computer and hoping to remember it long enough to search for it again later.

 

Alternately, users can take a picture of a location and share it with their friends without having to go through the “search, grab a link, and text it” rigamarole. The system can be used for everyday tasks, like sharing a new restaurant with a significant other, but where it really shines is as a white-label solution that Grafetee can tweak to suit other groups’ needs..."

The Real Story behind Social Media and Search

The Real Story behind Social Media and Search | 287mwm | Scoop.it

"Search and social media are joined at the hip – or are they? As search engine rankings get more complex, and the dust has settled on search engine updates from the last 18 month, marketers are left wondering what’s next.

 

Although social media and search engine optimization used to be in two different camps of online marketing, they seem to be increasingly linked together.

 

In 2010, Google implemented a more social friendly search algorithm that took author reputation, bookmarking, commenting and other social “signals” (likes, retweets, shares and more) into account when presenting their search engine results. In addition, they began to implement the “Search Plus Your World” option for searchers who were logged into their Google accounts while searching. Other search engines quickly followed suit, and SEOs everywhere began to emphasize social media for optimization.

 

But what kind of social media and how many social media signals are a factor in search engine results?

A Crystal Clear Explanation of How Social Media Influences SEO

A Crystal Clear Explanation of How Social Media Influences SEO | 287mwm | Scoop.it

How social context is playing a role in SEO and how marketers can adjust their strategies to match the changing character of search.

"More and more, search engines have begun to incorporate social context into their search results. And it's high time we dive into what role social context is playing in SEO, and how marketers can adjust their strategies to match the changing character of search. So without further ado, let's get into the nitty gritty of what's being called "social search" and learn how it affects marketers.

"Social search" is an evolving term for the way in which search engines factor a user's social network -- also referred to as social graph -- into how results are displayed after a search query. In social search, content that has a social connection to you in some way is prioritized. A social connection could mean someone you are linked to via Facebook, Twitter, or any other major social network. Alternately, some forms of social search prioritize content that has been shared by social media influencers, even if those experts aren't directly tied to you".

Seems the most logical approach for inline QR code identification is to turn it into a link as other inline referrals. Example - how effective is a QR code as a link in a tweet?

Facebook SEO: 12 Potential Ranking Factors for the Upcoming Facebook Search Engine

Facebook SEO: 12 Potential Ranking Factors for the Upcoming Facebook Search Engine | 287mwm | Scoop.it

New Search Engine, New Ranking Factors.

 

Facebook Search ranking factors could indeed be much different than traditional SEO factors. And that can have a huge impact on how digital marketers work, especially how it relates to SEO, social media marketing, and paid search.

 

Until Facebook launches a serious search engine, SEOs will continue executing, analyzing, and refining their efforts based on a number of SEO ranking factors related to websites, webpages, links, on-page optimization, domain authority, etc.

 

Sure, Google and Bing continually update their algorithms, but we know that on-page optimization is important, building high-quality links is important, pumping out high-quality and unique content is important, etc.

 

So, what happens if a big player jumps in the game with a completely different set of ranking factors?

 

What if Facebook launches a killer search engine? What will it look like and how will it work? And more importantly for digital marketers, what will the ranking factors be?
