1 in 4 SMB Websites Won’t Turn Up in Online Searches

1 in 4 SMB Websites Won’t Turn Up in Online Searches | Innovative Marketing and Crowdfunding | Scoop.it
26.4% of SMBs cannot be found in online searches because their websites earn a Google Page Rank of zero or have no Google Page Rank, finds vSplash in an audit of 3.9 million
Marty Koenig's insight:

Wow! These are amazing stats. 

  • 94.5% of SMB websites not being mobile optimized;
  • 94.6% lacking a Twitter widget on their home page, and 91.2% without a Facebook widget;


Unbelievable but it doesn't surprise me. 


I help small business owners every day get more visible online. One client is  achieving 200% growth per month, and many weeks are 400% increase and higher. Ask me how.

Making Salt Water Drinkable Just Got 99 Percent Easier

Making Salt Water Drinkable Just Got 99 Percent Easier | Innovative Marketing and Crowdfunding | Scoop.it
Access to steady supplies of clean water is getting more and more difficult in the developing world, especially as demand skyrockets.

 

Lockheed Martin's Perforene, on the other hand, is made from single atom-thick sheets of graphene. Because the sheets are so thin, water flows through them far more easily than through a conventional TFC.

 

Filters made through the Perforene process would incorporate filtering holes just 100 nm in diameter—large enough to let water molecules through but small enough to capture dissolved salts. It looks a bit like chicken wire when viewed under a microscope

Sepp Hasslberger's comment, March 19, 2013 10:42 AM
Yes, it would seem that those kinds of filters could satisfy our demand for water with great efficiency. Let's hope this works out.
Rosamaria's comment, April 22, 2013 9:37 AM
Only 3% of the water in the planet is freshwater meaning non salty water. With this technology we will fully take advantage of the Earth's water. We could even rename our planet and call it "Water"
timallard's comment, June 24, 2013 3:08 PM
My work is a miniaturized system for home-farm-ranch that copies larger sewage treatment plants yet uses algae to clean the water not floccing chemicals. Bioreactors are used for this and most made for large batch processing so my design is a cube 1/2m on a side full of glass plates that light the entire volume well, easy to aerate and will include harvesting to a slurry that's processed for biodiesel, a high-volume supply. Then the de-watered cakes are quality fertilizer so you get pure water, biodiesel and fertilizer from this system intended to be sold in home-farm supply stores with parts and service people.

With this a small dairy operation can produce their fuel from the washdown, getting the water back as well and fertilzer so it's clear the benefits possible from bringing this to the market.

Marty Koenig's insight:

This is a brilliant email campaign. 

1. It draws you in, and compels you to pick your area of focus for the season. 

2. It's clean, simple, and not cluttered with a huge colored rectangle around it with blocks of "color for the sake of color" like I see so many from the liks fo Constant Contact and Mail Chimp. 

3. It begs you to read it - people LOVE to put themselves in categories. What category are you?
