Google social search: The tech giant’s disastrous decision to muck up its search results.

Google social search: The tech giant’s disastrous decision to muck up its search results. | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

I haven't shared anything about this yet.  I was curious if people were over-reacting when Google implimented this in January.  Three months later, I am sad to say that I agree

 

Google just broke its search engine. It did so under the guise of an improvement, an effort to mesh traditional search results with stuff from your social network.

Althought it is four years old, I think this is helpful for students to know that Google wants:

Is Google+ a Ghost Town? 5 Reasons That Will Change Your Mind

Is Google+ a Ghost Town? 5 Reasons That Will Change Your Mind | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Google+ is getting flack for low average time on site numbers, but what do these truly symbolize? And do they really matter?

 

So with Google+’s new redesign and several articles that have appeared highlighting how Google+ is “dying,” maybe we should reflect on what Google+ is doing right, with perhaps the pundits looking at it through the wrong lens?

 

What if Google+ never needed to be Facebook, but rather exist as something more?

 

So you’re on Google+, and you think it’s a ghost town because your friends aren’t on it?

 

Well, what if I told you none of that mattered?

 

What if I told you, you could see what you really wanted to see; interact with what/who you really wanted to interact with; and group those interests and engagements into categories and subjects?

 

Well here’s five reasons how Google+ can make you forget that your friends aren’t here, while still being amazingly useful, interesting and engaging. It’s more than a social network.

As a technology, the screen is sort of a kludge. It only works if you're looking at it. For an advertiser, that's just not good enough. If you're out walking around, the screen on your desk or your console isn't doing anything.

Google Algorithm Changes For April: Big List Released

Google Algorithm Changes For April: Big List Released | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

This one is important.  A great list somewhat directly from Matt Cutts.

 

Some that interest me:

-more location based...via countries
(I actually don't like this one many times) 

-no reward for freshness on bad sites

(codename: no rot)

-New Korean Error message...clearly a connection to the Tech War and sliding in on nationalism against the hated Apple here in Korea.  Google is doing many things to get friendly with government, Posco Steel, and education here....and of course Android and Samsung relationships

-More focus on quality (informative) titles.  I was curious when this would come.  Kind of kills creativity...but probably a good choice.-

-More support for multiple mispellings

-Better Safe search walls

-MLB scores.  Insert"Favorite team score) for updates!...same with spanish footbal, Formula 1 racting, etc.

-Movie showtimes in Korea...see above

-and thankfully, punishment for keyword stuffers!!!!!!!!

 

So many things for us to consider! I like most of what I see.

Social vs Search #Infographic

Social vs Search #Infographic | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
While there are many differences between search marketing and social media, and each has its strengths, both are essential in marketing today. Interestingly, they take on exponentially more power when marketers use them together.

 

To identify what works best for particular goals, MDG Advertising - http://bit.ly/GDbvlC - created this enlightening Infographic that distinguishes the digital supremacy between social media and search marketing, as well as the collective strength of this dynamic duo.

 

Take a look at how these two online methods measure up on their own and in sync.

 

When comparing search marketing vs. social media, search is more effective for some online objectives while social is the hands-down choice for others. For example, lead generation is better achieved through the high-visibility, low-cost methods of search marketing.

This appears to be the consensus among both B2C and B2B marketers.

 

Building brand awareness involves a completely different marketing approach that makes increasing exposure the primary mission. Most marketers agree that social media is superior to search marketing for these scenarios.

 

When it comes to maximizing the visibility of local businesses, twice as many consumers rely on search engines. This statistic holds true for all kinds of local businesses, from professional service companies to establishments such as restaurants and bars.

 

Finally, most marketers prefer social media over search marketing when the goal is interactivity. Social media nurtures an ongoing online dialogue and creates a genuine sense of connection that simply cannot be achieved by search alone.

 

Today, marketers are realizing that combining these digital dynamos can lead to the greatest results of all. Our increasingly digital world is blurring the lines between social and search, with social networks adding search features, and search engines launching social components.

 

The Web has gotten wise to their mutual power and now marketers are following suit for success.
