Bart van Maanen's curator insight, August 3, 2013 8:48 AM

Zoekmachines - en Google - voorop gaan de context van zoektermen steeds beter begrijpen, zodat gebruikers betere en op hun situatie (plek, voorkeuren) toegespitste resultaten krijgen. Omdat het daarbij om de zogeheten 'big data' draait, is onder meer het gebruik van Google+ belangrijk voor Google. 

 

Kort gezegd gaat het betekenen dat zoekwoord 'pizza' niet leidt naar allerhande recepten websites, maar naar de Italiaan om de hoek.

5 Steps For Optimizing Your LinkedIn Company Page

5 Steps For Optimizing Your LinkedIn Company Page | Business Futures | Scoop.it

Search And Social Meets Content And Influence

 

On April 3, the New York Times reported that LinkedIn is one of many competitors vying for a piece of Google’s search traffic.With over 5.7 billion professionally oriented searches performed on the site last year, LinkedIn has made continued efforts to improve the search experience, adding new features like auto-complete, suggested searches, automated alerts and a smarter query intent algorithm.

 

Content marketing on LinkedIn puts you and your business in front of the people you want to see it. Just like with Google, there is a renewed focus on content at LinkedIn as the company strives to compete with other social networks.A great example of this is LinkedIn’s recent acquisition and integration of SlideShare, a service used for uploading and sharing presentations.

 

Add to this the launch of new products like LinkedIn Today, LinkedIn Influencers (where a hand-picked crew of 200 celebrity professionals present exclusive content), and Sponsored Updates (allowing brands to promote whitepapers and branded content), and marketers have a powerful platform that combines search and social and connects content with influencers.

Microsoft Stock Drops 5% After Nokia Deal

Microsoft Stock Drops 5% After Nokia Deal | Business Futures | Scoop.it
Microsoft's surprise deal to acquire Nokia's phone business for more than $7 billion in cash appears to have left investors cold.

Microsoft stock dropped by more than 5% in early trading following the acquisition announcement late Monday night. The stock opened on Tuesday below $32 a share, effectively erasing the remainder of the stock's gains from after Steve Ballmer announced he would step down as CEO in the next year.

Adam Atodl's insight:

This is a really useful visualization of the impact of Google's updates on your websites. It allows you to see at a glance which updates had most impact and why.

The basic (free) plan allows for the checking of two websites - if you want more than that you have to upgrade to the Pro version. 

Warning - the analysis of my main site had more red on it than the one shown above - and too many big red blobs really depresses me :-(

The Google Penalty Checker is a free web-based tool which allows you to instantly verify whether your web site has been penalized by one of the Google Panda or Google Penguin algorithm updates in the last two years.


The key characterizing feature of this service is that it provides a statistically significant result that highlights exactly which update impacted your website and if it was a positive or negative impact.


Invaluable.


Free to use.


If you want to monitor more than two websites, there's a PRO version. Pricing it's here: http://fruition.net/gpc-pricing/
