Breaking news that Pinterest is changing user submitted pins to make money. Are they now one of the biggest affiliates on the Internet?... That's the question [note MG]

 

I swore I wasn’t going to write about Pinterest again for a while after finishing a six part series of blog posts, but major developments keeping coming and no major news organizations seems to be covering them.

 

If you post a pin to Pinterest, and it links to an ecommerce site that happens to have an affiliate program, Pinterest modifies the link to add their own affiliate tracking code. If someone clicks through the picture from Pinterest and makes a purchase, Pinterest gets paid. They don’t have any disclosure of this link modification on their site, and so far, while it has been written about, no major news outlet has picked up on the practice or its implications.

Your Social Media and SEO Game Plan for 2012

Your Social Media and SEO Game Plan for 2012 | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

Every company should have a plan on how to establish themselves professionally on social media, taking into account various parameters such as volume of publication, SEO and organization. This article will give you support to make it more easily. [note Martin Gysler]

 

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will have heard about the Google Panda update and what it did to many low-quality websites last year. It was more like a Google sniper attack on all the spam and rubbish sites. Honestly, this does not seem to be the end of the Panda: there is more to come, and we need to watch out.


The whole reason Google made these changes was to give Google users a good experience when they use Google search, and why not? When I look for something on Google the last thing I would want to see is rubbish information.

 

That is why, as SEO marketers, we need to take a different approach to ranking on Google and driving free organic traffic to our sites. If you have done any kind of SEO, you know what the key principles of ranking on Google are.

choosing the right keywords building a well optimized site with good content building quality backlinks.

7 Essential Tips for WordPress Beginners

7 Essential Tips for WordPress Beginners | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

Whether you're new to WordPress or a seasoned pro, you need to make sure you're implementing these 7 techniques to get the results you want from your site. [note]

You meet someone and they say all the right things. They’re full of compliments and accolades.

 

Except, something bugs you about them. Their words don’t quite match their actions. They can be forgetful, and even mean. Eventually, the glow wears off, and you see them for who they really are.

And that’s how it is with your WordPress website, especially if you’re just getting started.

 

That’s because you can’t just talk about how great WordPress is and expect it to work for you. You can’t just read about it, either.
