SEO Tools:


1)  BuzzSumo - This tool is on everyone's list to find out what content is hot in your industry.  


2)  SEMrush - Use this tool to research your competitors and see what keywords and links they are ranking for.


3)  SerpBook - Great took for tracking your keywords on a daily basis


Social Media Tools:


1)  Pin Alerts - Simple tracking tool to see how many Pins you have received on your website (Free)


2)  Hootsuite - This is a common social media posting tool, but it also is good for analytics on your accounts.


3)  Tailwind -  This is a great tool for scheduling your Pinterest posts.  If you aren't using Pinterest you need to be for SEO and traffic.


There were many other tools that are great in the article.  Pick a couple to try out and see which ones you will ACTUALLY use.

A Beginner's Guide to Understanding the Internet of Things

A Beginner's Guide to Understanding the Internet of Things | Digital Technology and Life | Scoop.it

Smart locks, smart thermostats, smart cars — you’ve probably heard some of these terms lately, and you’re going to hear them even more as the year goes on. But what are these things exactly — and what makes them so smart?

These devices are all part of an emerging category called the Internet of Things, or IoT for short. At its very basic level, IoT refers to the connection of everyday objects to the Internet and to one another, with the goal being to provide users with smarter, more efficient experiences. Some recent examples of IoT products include the Nest Protectsmoke detector and August door locks.

But as with any new technology, IoT can be confusing and intimidating for the average consumer, especially as debates swirl around standardization, security and privacy, and company after company piles on to this fast-growing trend. I’ve compiled an FAQ on IoT to better explain how it works, how these products are being used in the real world, and some of the issues and challenges facing the category.

I spoke with a number of companies and groups working on IoT products and standards, including Apple, SmartThings, the Internet of Things Consortium, AllSeen Alliance, theOpen Interconnect Consortium and the Thread Group.

Government chief scientific adviser: 'Don’t trivialise the internet of things'

Government chief scientific adviser: 'Don’t trivialise the internet of things' | Digital Technology and Life | Scoop.it

In the introduction to his report, Walport said there was a “danger of trivialising the importance of the internet of things through examples that are used to stereotype it – for example, the fridge that orders fresh milk”.

Walport said IoT could have a much greater impact on society than the first digital revolution, with the potential to support “an extraordinary range of applications and economic opportunities”.

However, he warned there will also be potential for significant challenges around security and privacy breaches, and it will be critical that scientists, programmers and entrepreneurs behave and act responsibly.
