Well said that scooper!

Pallab Kakoti's curator insight, April 6, 2014 2:26 AM

A webpage that shows a lot of social shares appears much more authoritative as compared to a webpage with few social shares. This has been corroborated by research data that shows content activity from social media channels weighs into rankings on search engines. The importance of links as a ranking parameter is less likely to cease as they evolve into a new role that indicates the importance of social media activity as a ranking factor.

Here are 20 social signals that Google tracks to determine ranking based on various social media activities on Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit, Digg, StumbleUpon & Foursquare.

Marketing the Art of Shoes - Curagami

The Power of SHOES
Isabel Flowers wrote a fascinating post in Artforum about "sneakerheads" and the 1.2 billion dollar aftermarket for sneakers. Flowers' post got us thinking about flocking behavior, how weather-like the Internet is and what sneakers, baseball cards and art can teach us about marketing.

Blondie's New York - Curagami

Blondie's New York - Curagami | Curation Revolution |

Blondie's New York
Blondie's New York on the Smithsonian channel stinks but in a good way. If you can't smell, feel and remember NYC in the seventies while watching Blondie's band members stitch their 20-million selling Parallel Lines album together you weren't there. I was and I remember. 

I remember the crime, grime and sense of hopelessness that seemed to have a choke hold on NYC. But the ART was amazing. In a tiny rat-hole of a bar named CBGB the Talking Heads, Ramones and Blondie was born, nurtured, taught and honed. The Smithsonian's documentary tells several stories simultaneously. 

One story is the city's rotting corpse infecting the air and spirits with the thick fetid smell of death and dying. Yet despite or maybe because of the retching, queasy  feel great art was made. Art that defined the city, the bands and us.
