If we're going to be able to know more about ourselves from sensors, I think we should have the rights to control who gets to access that data. Without that control, anyone can use that data against us. How do we keep our privacy rights in a world full of sensors?

Emerging Channels Challenge SEO for Mobile Marketing Dollars

Emerging Channels Challenge SEO for Mobile Marketing Dollars | MobileWeb | Scoop.it

As more consumers switch to smart phones, emerging channels are gaining importance in a marketing space that SEO has dominated. For years, brands have used SEO strategy to market their products, but it has become harder to find as an increasing number of search results are returning unrelated content. Also, according to one entrepreneur, in 2013 organic search results made up only 13 percent of screen space. The rest of the screen was dominated by “ads and junk.”


Problems with SEO-lead strategy are only magnified as more consumers view content on mobile devices. For instance, vertical and native search on mobile is continually threatening traditional search. Google’s traditional search traffic had declined 3 percent by the end of 2012.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, January 19, 7:31 AM

Startups Think Mobile First
I got this lesson at Triangle Startup Factories Fall Showcase when more than half of the "graduating" startups were MOBILE focused almost to the exclusion of content on Google. 

These startups could have cared less about organic SEO. I'm not sure I would live all the way there YET but SOT (Sign of the Times) and yet another big wake up call to Google. 

It is possible via app stores and direct connection into what is rapidly becoming many people's #1 digital device - their SmartPhone - to build a substantial business and have NO top ranked keywords in Google. 

All things being equal I still want content in the Big G since a traffic source as valuable as that is stupid to ignore, but the brash thinking of next gen entrepreneurs DOESN'T INCLUDE GOOGLE. 

Google, for these brash mobile first entrepreneurs, doesn't enter in their field of vision. They aren't worried about winning organic SEO as much as they fear bad ratings on the app store (lol). 

After spending years tweaking, cajoling and pleading organic SEO I'm ready for something new and different. SEO feels played out, not worth half the time we used to put in it and OVER.

Hackers And Spambots Are Going After Your Fridges and Smart TVs Now | MobileWeb | Scoop.it

There are plenty of good reasons you might want an Internet-enabled smart refrigerator. Your friends will constantly tell you that you’re from the future! You could check how much milk is left from the store! You can… uh… tweet from it when every other more-suitable gadget in your house is dead?

But there’s also a good reason to not want one, at least until we figure this whole “Internet Of Things” (read: LETS PUT THE INTERNET IN EVERYTHING) is going to work: security is hard.
