Pinterest Replacing Organic Search?

Pinterest Replacing Organic Search? | Infographics and Social Media | Scoop.it

Brands have been witnessing a shift in how their customers locate their businesses. Where organic search was king, visual product discovery is now highly popular with Pinterest leading the way.  

 

Wouldn’t it be perfect if your brand could develop high levels of advocacy and positive sentiment with little or no investment in a marketing strategy? It appears this is precisely what is happening on Pinterest. The latest research would suggest that users posting brand collateral on their scrapbooks drive a massive 70% of brand engagement.

10 people who learned social media can get you fired | Infographics and Social Media | Scoop.it

At this point in the digital age there's probably enough evidence to make people think twice about what they say or do online, lest it become social media fodder, right?

Wrong.

An image that was shared on social media of a Taco Bell employee licking a stack of taco shells once again demonstrated the unintended -- but probably not unforeseeable -- side effects of social media.

 

More CNN/BuzzFeed: Awkward celebrity interviews

 

Taco Bell said the picture itself was acceptable as part of a contest. The fact that it was shared on someone's personal social media account violated the franchisee's policies. But each week seems to bring a new story of someone posting something they definitely shouldn't have.

5 Enterprise SEO Platforms to Consider

5 Enterprise SEO Platforms to Consider | Infographics and Social Media | Scoop.it

SEO is tricky for everyone, but it's especially tricky for large enterprise organizations with a bunch of moving parts that can be hard for any one person (or even one department, at times) to monitor.

That is why many big companies have turned, or are considering turning, to an enterprise SEO platform that will help them achieve constant, ongoing success across various industries and sectors in the natural search rankings on major search engines. Of course, this will inevitably lead to increased traffic, greater brand exposure and more conversions, which is what they really want.

Companies can use these platforms in a variety of ways that will ultimately improve their search engine optimization efforts, including helping them identify important industry segments and tailoring content and distribution to gain credibility with them – but how do they know which option is going to be right for them? Well, they could start by reading Website Magazine’s list of five enterprise SEO platforms to consider.

The Dreamer’s Dilemma: Prevent Your Dreams from Turning into Nightmares

The Dreamer’s Dilemma: Prevent Your Dreams from Turning into Nightmares | Infographics and Social Media | Scoop.it

Silicon Valley is full of dreamers. Crazy dreamers. Lazy dreamers. Brilliant dreamers.

 

Silicon Valley is also full of even bigger piles of money to hyperloop those dreams into tomorrow’s reality.

 

This past week, the Valley’s leading dreamers and their backers, and others from around the country who want to be just like them, trekked down to a small resort outside Los Angeles to dream big at D: All Things Digital.

 

The format is simple.

 

During the day, the ringmasters, Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, pepper CEOs with questions as their targets do their best to stick to talking points and avoid sweating out.

 

At night, dinners and drinks move to poker and pizza upstairs, where billionaires, founders, journalists – and even a few bankers – talk about the future of the internet, technology and the world.

 

This year’s interviews featured Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook), Dick Costolo (Twitter), Ben Silbermann (Pinterest), Barry Diller (IAC), Jeff Zucker (CNN), Tim Cook (Apple), John Chambers (Cisco), Jeffrey Immelt (GE) and Kazuo Hirai (Sony).

Build an Online Community by Stepping into the Unknown

Build an Online Community by Stepping into the Unknown | Infographics and Social Media | Scoop.it

Stepping outside the proverbial box and into the unknown helped me to build an online community around running and living your dream. Following my passion has inspired others and pushed the limits of what is considered normal. Well, I’ve never been known to be normal. I tend to reach past that and push the envelope a bit.


As I was running across the Golden Gate Bridge for the first time this past February, a little thought took flight in my head: Wouldn’t it be awesome to travel all over the country seeing our national treasures by running on them or past them? As my feet pounded the asphalt and my eyes took in the white capped ocean waves, my mind was racing with the possibilities. The running community might embrace this idea and I could build a social community to support me while I took on this monumental task. The idea grew and blossomed. Not only could I run over great big bridges or up the trails at Mt. Rushmore, I could run in half marathons across the United States.

Content Marketers Should Run *to* the Flame War, Not Away from it

Content Marketers Should Run *to* the Flame War, Not Away from it | Infographics and Social Media | Scoop.it

I admit, as someone who loves popular news stories and content, I get a little jealous when I see a controversial post on a blog. These posts, with their heavy amount of comments and social shares, are a content marketer’s dream. They mean more people clicking around your site, noticing what you do and perhaps even helping your bottom line, whether it be through selling a product or loading ads.


Occurring in many a viral post is the “flame war.” Urban Dictionary defines it as “a heated argument between two individuals, that results in those involved posting personal attacks on each other during or instead of debating the topic at hand.” After having been in a few of these myself over the years, it has colored my perspective on commenting in general.

What The Google Century Means For Your Brand In 2013

What The Google Century Means For Your Brand In 2013 | Infographics and Social Media | Scoop.it

Building a branding strategy in the digital age can be a bit like trying to construct a house of cards while sitting on the rear seat of a motorcycle.  An ordinary person can’t do it without quickly gaining a sense of futility (and of course, personal peril).

 

Many experts have been writing advance obituaries for Internet search for several years now; in most cases these have also been advance obituaries for search-giantGoogle GOOG +1.24%.  Such experts often argue that the art of search-engine optimization (SEO) is dead or on life support, leaving online marketers to flail wildly in search of a new strategy that would allow them to reach the right consumers.

 

Yet just as Google is in far better shape than many skeptics would have imagined (with the Financial Times’ John Gapper terming it the General Electric GE -0.34% of the 21st century), SEO is far from dead.  In fact, a new wave of SEO-focused services is gaining attention for the ability to bring a more understandable and more intelligent approach to maximizing an organization’s “findability.”

Enterprise SEO Platform GinzaMetrics Launches Major Update, Names LaunchRock Co-Founder Sean McCullough As CTO | Infographics and Social Media | Scoop.it

GinzaMetrics, the Y Combinator graduate and 500 Startups-funded SEO management and content marketing platform, today announced a major update and redesign of its service. With this update, the company is introducing this new design to highlight features like its competitor comparisons, recommendations and a white label solution for its dashboard.

 

The company, which launched in 2010, also announced that it has named Sean McCullough as its new CTO. McCullough was the technical co-founder and CTO ofLaunchRock, the popular service for setting up “launching soon” sites and a co-founder of Ping.fm, which Seesmic acquired in 2010. Previous to joining GinzaMetrics, McCullough was also the CTO of Sodisco. As GinzaMetric’s COO Eric O’Brien told me, the team believes McCullough is the right fit for the team (“He is a hard-core engineer and entrepreneur with a penchant for death metal and good drinks,” she said). GinzaMetric’s staff has doubled in size over the last few months and now includes team members in six countries.

New Pinterest Research Shows Which Images Get the Most Engagement | Infographics and Social Media | Scoop.it

New research emerging from Curalate describes what types of images get the most pins, repins, and likes on Pinterest.

 

Analysis of more than 500,000 images looking at 30 different visual characteristics like textures, colors and more, uncovered a pattern in the popular pictures on Pinterest.

 

Let's have a look at some of the data, which suggests users have preferences for:

Vibrant images: The most repinned images have multiple colors, and those with multiple dominant colors have 3.25 times more repins per image than those with just a single dominant color.Certain colors: Red images get more repins than blue images. What's more, images that are red, orange and brown receive about twice as many repins than images that are blue.
