Have you become desensitized and disillusioned with Twitter?
Do you feel like you are suffering from Twitter Tiredness?
Do you feel like you are “tweeting in the dark”, spending more and more time on Twitter but getting less and less out of it?
I know the story. A few months (or years) ago, you signed up for a Twitter account. You dutifully wrote a clever bio, uploaded your picture and started tweeting. Maybe you followed some accounts and learned a bit about the culture and etiquette of the network before sending your first tweet.

The penetration of Pinterest in social media proves two things:
there is space for unique social media initiatives; there is a world beyond Twitter and Facebook – the current social media favorites.
If you thought handling Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Digg and LinkedIn were enough, add Pinterest to your list now.

Panda is an ongoing filter that weeds out web pages with poor, superficial content that were previously ranked highly for popular keywords.
2. Fresh Content Ranks Higher
In other words, a blog post you wrote yesterday will have a greater chance of ranking higher than a two-year old web page on the same topic.
3. Link Spam Penalties

7. Rel = Author Support in Search Results
This means that for every piece of content that you create, you can take credit for it and have your picture show up next to the content in Google search results.
For retailers, shopping is the art of persuasion. Though there are many factors that influence how and what consumers buy.

Interesting " It’s difficult to assign value to social channels and campaigns, as evidenced by the sheer amount of tools trying to solve the social ROI challenge.
