Risking the wrath of politicians and the Federal Reserve's own hard-won reputation for keeping prices stable, three top Fed officials are touting plans for boosting employment that explicitly allow for inflation to run above the Fed's 2-percent goal.
The global debt crisis has reached a dangerous new phase. Unfortunately, most Americans are not taking notice of it yet because most of the action is taking place overseas, and because U.S. financial markets are riding high. But just because the global economic crisis is unfolding at the pace of a "slow-motion train wreck" right now does not mean that it isn't incredibly dangerous.
This is the first I've learned of these "ripples", and of the briefly mentioned "Whiteboard+".
While this article is focused on finding real estate buyers and private money lenders, it could certainly apply to any business interested in reaching a larger pool of targeted prospects, whatever your business needs may be.
If there's one thing that's universally true for all businesses, it's that you need traffic, leads and conversions in order to sustain and grow your business.
Personally, I've already been exploring Google+ as an avenue of lead generation by connecting with people who I feel might be a good fit, and to whom I could add value. However, up until reading this article, I had been doing so in a more organic way.
I'm very interested to see what I can discover using Google+ Ripples, and I suggest you do so as well. It could be a powerful way to extend your marketing efforts in an impactful way.
You can find the Ripple of any public post using the dropdown to the right of the post. When you press down on the arrow, a menu appears, and if the pots has been shared multiple times, you can see the option “view ripple".
RockMelt for iPad lets you connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts, pull in feeds from sites you Like, follow friends, and get hooked up with recommended publishers. It combines these all into an omni-feed and vertical specific streams you can peruse without ever pulling up the keyboard.
But above all this deficit results from increased media malpractice and censorship. When a study shows that regular viewers of Fox News are less informed—and likely more misinformed—than those who don't follow the news ...
I recently attended an event with a large number of advertising executives. All of them are coming to grips with the change from the era of push media to the era of social media, which might more properly be called "pull media."
At its core, the social revolution allows people to consume what they want, when they want, and largely on the recommendation of friends and other non-professional influencers. Attempt to graft old models onto it and you are doomed to struggle; find models that are native to the medium and you will thrive.
"Likewise, we’re still in the early stages of Penguin where the engineers are incorporating new signals and iterating to improve the algorithm. Because of that, expect that the next few Penguin updates will take longer, incorporate additional signals, and as a result will have more noticeable impact. It’s not the case that people should just expect data refreshes for Penguin quite yet. Emphasis added."
Matt Cutts said, “I think if you look further out in the future and look at something that we call social signals or authorship or whatever you want to call it, in ten years, I think knowing that a really reputable guy – if Dan has written an article, whether it’s a comment on a forum or on a blog – I would still want to see that. So that’s the long-term trend.”
"Right now all currencies on the planet are backed by debt. If you need a refresher course in why fiat money can become toast, here are some words published this week on the website of Texas Congressman Ron Paul about fiat money and gold standard:
"Fiat money is not good money because it can be issued without limit and therefore cannot act as a stable store of value. A fiat monetary system gives complete discretion to those who run the printing press, allowing governments to spend money without having to suffer the political consequences of raising taxes. Fiat money benefits those who create it and receive it first, enriching government and its cronies. And the negative effects of fiat money are disguised so that people do not realize that money the Fed creates today is the reason for the busts, rising prices and unemployment, and diminished standard of living tomorrow.
"This is why it is so important to allow people the freedom to choose stable money. Earlier this Congress I introduced the Free Competition in Currency Act (H.R. 1098) to permit people to use gold as moneyagain. By eliminating taxes on gold and other precious metals and repealing legal tender laws, people are given the option between using good money or fiat money. If the government persists in debasing the dollar - as money monopolists have always done - then the people would be able to protect themselves by using alternatives such as gold that are both sound and stable. ..."
YouTube just announced that it is changing its search ranking algorithm to highlight videos that keep viewers engaged. The idea here, says YouTube, is to “reward engaging videos that keep viewers watching.” Because of this change, YouTube expects that the time viewers spent watching videos from search will increase in the near future.
The video ranking thumb trick is all about ranking your own domain for a "Video Thumb" instead of your Youtube Channel.
There are several plugins that claim to help you do this, but most of them are lying- or not telling you the complete truth. Many of them pass off the "Google Video" search results as the video thumb trick indexing, but obviously we are not talking about that!
Matt's answer seems intentionally vague, and I assume for good reason, considering how scrutinized everything he says will be taken. Still, I find merit in the direction that Google is taking here to hone-in on quality content.
Of particular insterest is the fact that he seems to be focused on communicating the importance of originality. I think this is an important component, and one that is too often overlooked simply because it's generally so dificult for people to come up with unique thoughts on a daily basis (or whatever timeframe it is they usually post on their blogs).
This certainly is of great consequence to those who have, until recently, used article marketing (or I should write, "article directory marketing") to artificially inflate their rankings for uninspiring, dull content, simpy because they're trying to outrank their competition.
So, this begs the question, if you are going to write quality content, how do you come up with a steady stream of ideas? And how do you craft your content in a way that engages and satisfies your readers?
China has been running all over the planet making agreements with other nations to start conducting an increasing amount of trade in currencies other than the U.S. dollar. And of course the Chinese are heavily promoting their own currency - the renminbi.
So why is this happening? Well, for one thing, the truth is that the United States is not the only superpower in the world anymore. The Chinese economy is actually projected to become larger than the U.S. economy by 2016, and by some measurements the Chinese economy is already larger.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to be on the rise in the United States, and in the search for explanations researchers have begun to scrutinize fetal exposure to a wide range of toxins, including lead, tobacco, pesticides,...
In network marketing – You are your Product, You are your Business, You are your Brand."
In other words, people join you, not your company or the compensation plan. Unfortunately, too many excited business owners seem to think that it's the company, the compensation plan or the products etc. that people join. No wonder so many souls enthusiastic in the beginning, fade away from the business thinking it's not for them when they don’t get results they desire.
If you have been building a network marketing business for a while, you already know that people go back to Google and research on you and your company after you show them your business presentation.
Cutts has made comments in the past indicating that this update could be “jarring”. Are you seeing the effects?
Search Engine Land reports that Google released a Panda algorithm update (not a data refresh, but an actual update) on Thursday, and that it impacts 2.4% of English search queries (and is still rolling out). That’s significantly larger than the 0.6% of English-US queries Cutts said the EMD update affected. So, it seems that the majority of those claiming to be hit by the EMD update were likely hit by Panda (which would explain those claiming to be hit, that didn’t have exact match domains).
