There Is A New SEO Sheriff In Town - Facebook Becomes #1 Web Destination

There Is A New SEO Sheriff In Town - Facebook Becomes #1 Web Destination | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it
We were more fascinated by our SEO game's rules than why we were playing then a giant snapped his fingers and Daniel Pink's new mind prediction was true.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Facebook vs. Google & The New SEO
Facebook becoming the #1 web destination is as much a VOTE for something (content and content curation) as against something (Google).


There will be a day when Google is as powerful in social networking as Facebook. People laugh at G+. I don't. I LOVE under valued tools because then I get to BUY LOW and SELL HIGH. 

Wrote this piece as Facebook's traffic line crossed Google's. You can see that infogrpahic here:

If it feels like that event is bigger than it seems I agree. Facebook becoming the web's top destination is a statement about how TRUE Daniel Pink's book A Whole New Mind is and will be. Couldn't resist sharing thoughts on such a momentous event.

Quick Web Writing Lesson - Curagami

Quick Web Writing Lesson - Curagami | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Web Copy
Writing web copy that wins hearts and minds is easier and harder than you think. Easier because tiny changes make huge differences in customer engagement and your website's ability to convert. Harder because learning to slow down and think about things like empathy, using OPW (Other People's Words) and the right way to use acronyms takes practice, discipline and courage. 

Here are the tips we share on Curagami:

  • Use OPW (Other People’s Words) – Trusted sources or industry gurus make excellent sources
  • Use Customer Words – Customers know you listen when they see features of User Generated Content (UGC)
  • Touch the Universal – R&D is hard, takes time and money is a “universal truth.”
  • Cliches – Cliches are another “truth” you can turn in your favor
  • Empathy Words – Use words that create a sense of empathy between YOU and whoever is reading your copy words such as “collaborate,” “teamed with” and “love.”
  • Acronyms – Acronyms can convey industry knowledge, but be sure to explain fully the first time you use an acronym
