Google Panda Victim: How I Killed My Content Farm - Forbes

Google Panda Victim: How I Killed My Content Farm - Forbes | FailCon | Scoop.it

Re-birth of Wikio: from Content Farm - a model clearly targeted by Google in their latest search algorithm change - to B2B business.

 

Interesting to watch the transition.

 

Will it work? No one knows for sure but Pierre Chappaz shows great adaptation skills in this move, raising a very big round for European Web standards and pivoting the whole group at the same time. 

 

That's bold and that's entrepreneurial.

 

An article of Benoit Raphael, founder of LePost.

This is how Silicon Valley handles failure (Video) | FailCon | Scoop.it

"Everyone knows the Color story. Funded with $41 million. First launch lands with a dud."

 

But they didn't stop at that at just a few months after that, here they are with a new product that, this time, could be a killer.

 

Robert Scoble has the scoop. Article from Mashable's Ben Parr in the works as well.

FailCon 2011 Warm Up at myninjaplease | FailCon | Scoop.it

If you wondered how people win, they failed to get there. FailCon is bringing together 20 speakers and a series of workshops to study the failure process. Happening October 24th, 9:00a - 6:00p at Hotel Kabuki, SF, it is bringing to light the often tabooed use of the term failure.
As an entrepreneur, you will inevitably encounter failure; it is overcoming it that is the biggest challenge. At FailCon, we help you do just that. Join founders and partners from MySpace, Uber, Cuil, Airbnb, Khosla Ventures, MindJolt, KISSmetrics, PBworks, Second Life, Mohr Davidow Ventures, and more as share advice on how to reach success.
Past ninja speaker from 2010 and teacher legend, Steve Blank, offers some insight about start-up customer development and the role of the pivot (from 30 years of experience mind you):
