Great article Marty. Wasn't long ago I'm talking to fellow website designer who said SEO is dead because of social media. I told him, funny how Google hasn't stopped telling website owners to do many of the items you cover in your article.  

Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, January 11, 2013 8:14 AM
Spiders still need context Brian so you note to the designer was correct. Correct alt text has been a particular challenge for me with many designers. I prefer to have file names with keywords too, but good luck selling that idea to a designer (lol). M

Social Media After Death of Vine - Curagami | Curation Revolution |

Social Media - Embrace The Suck
Turns out marketing and war have a lot in common as this Curagami post shares. Twitter is reeling in pain and social media marketing is entering the BIG SHAKEOUT period. 

Don't question, judge or cry too much. Grab you Vines, put them on YouTube and (or the best of 'em anyway) and move on. Remember nobody knows nothing and watch your ego and hubris enough to keep betting without the false belief you've found any lasting truth or repeatable pattern. 

Life after Vine's death and the Big Shakeout is going to, as the Marines say, embrace the suck. Find out why on Curagami:
