Don’t Believe The FUD: Windows 8 Is Much Better Than You Think | TechCrunch

Don’t Believe The FUD: Windows 8 Is Much Better Than You Think | TechCrunch | Ask Marty Tech Stuff | Scoop.it
The official Windows 8 launch is less than two weeks away and judging by much of the commentary ahead of the consumer launch, you'd think that Windows 8 on the desktop is a total, unmitigated disaster.

Sure, Windows 8 introduces new concepts, including the Metro-style Start menu. But for the most part, you can happily use Windows 8 just like you do Windows 7 and just think of it like a service pack.

eBay Goes The Pinterest Way and Allows You To Discover and Curate Your Favorite Products

eBay Goes The Pinterest Way and Allows You To Discover and Curate Your Favorite Products | Ask Marty Tech Stuff | Scoop.it


Robin Good: eBay has gone the Pinterest way by redesigning its web interface and allowing you to curate your preferred product categories as well as more specific parameters like the price range you are interested in, whether you want new or used items or prefer auctions to "buy-now" offerings. 


"Everything now centers on a Pinterest-like feed of featured, personalized, and self-curated products."


WebProNews reports: eBay says that the feed will show users “a collection of items selected for you, based on your shopping history or your own personal interests.” When a logged-in user first accesses the feed, they are given the opportunity to “follow” certain types of product lines as well as connect their feed to their Facebook interests.


eBay officially announced: “Today we begin to introduce a series of significant new features and enhancements for our customers. We’re delivering a cleaner, contemporary look and feel; a more intuitive, convenient way to browse, decide and buy – both globally and locally; and a new personal way to curate your own shopping experience and discover items perfect for you...” 


To test the new eBay curated feed, interface redesign and new logo, head to eBay.com (US version) and you will be immediately offered to select five product categories you are interested in.


The new eBay also allows users to integrate their Facebook account as well as their PayPal one to make it easier and faster to sell and buy on the popular online marketplace.

LinkedIn Is The Best Social Network For Improving SEO

LinkedIn Is The Best Social Network For Improving SEO | Ask Marty Tech Stuff | Scoop.it
Fewer links are shared on LinkedIn than on Twitter and Facebook, but there’s a much higher positive correlation of shares to inbound links.

 Dan ZarrellaHubSpot social media scientist, recently conducted a study of link sharing and SERP (search engine results page) correlation on the top three social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn — to determine which platform improves search engine results the most. Surprise, it’s LinkedIn!

 Zarrella compiled a database of 25,000+ URLs that had been shared at least once on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. The URLs were all at least one month old and had a minimum of one incoming link. 

 

The Study found that, while Facebook and Twitter users share the most links to content, the number of links directed at that content is higher per share via LinkedIn.

 

This is important because receiving more shares creates a snowball effect. Each time your content is seen and shared, you receive an inbound link. The more links your article has, the higher the authority rank it is given by search engines. This results in higher search engine placement and, along with it, more site traffic.

For best results,  develop a strategy for LinkedIn that includes posting links to your relevant content. 

In this slideshow, HubSpot Founder Dharmesh Shah and SEOmoz CEO Rand Fishkin show a graph of these results, as well as some key findings from HubSpot’s Report:

The State Of SEO And Internet Marketing In 2012:

#How to utilize content in your SEO and inbound marketing

#How to stay competitive in the rapidly evolving Internet marketing landscape

#What the best SEO practices in today’s marketing industry are

#Data that will help you make smarter marketing decisions
