Tech, Social Networks Making Access to Super Bowl Easier | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
"The Super Bowl has always been a social event. What's different now is that social media and the Internet have turned geography and proximity into nonfactors -- the trash talk and game banter can now span the globe, as people who can't get together physically interact with one another virtually."

24 SEO Experts Discuss Links vs. Tweets

24 SEO Experts Discuss Links vs. Tweets | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Last week Twitter and Google had a fight.

 

Here is an interesting and relaventdiscussion comparing value of social share platforms.  Specifically comparing Twitter quotes vs links.

 

I really like Tom Critchlow's comment:

"We’re moving into an age where the number of different data points are large and our ability to process them is high so we’ll be looking at an algorithm that fundamentally more fragmented, personalized and complex. I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a major update in 2012 that started to separate out different types of queries by intent/type and use different algorithms for them based on almost entirely different factors.”

 

 

Special thanks to John Cooper at PointBlankSEO for sharing this with me.  You can find his opions on this topic in the article.  You can also follow him on Twitter @PointBlankSEO

25 Reasons Why Google Hates Your Blog

25 Reasons Why Google Hates Your Blog | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Sometimes it's to ask what it takes to that Google ranks us on the first page... :-) Here is an article that will give us more information on this subject. [note Martin Gysler]

 

Your blog is a good read. Everyone says so.

 

Although “everyone” is really just people you already know. Like your Mum.

 

So why isn’t your blog being found by other people? The millions and millions of people hungrily consuming blog content out there in the global online space we call the Internet?

 

The cold, hard truth is that Google hates your blog. And it’s nothing personal. You just don’t have anything that Google wants.

 

Creating high-quality, relevant content is a must if you want your blog to be noticed by search engines but it’s only part of the picture. If you’re not sure if Google really hates your blog, or whether it’s just ambivalent, then step through these warning signs.

 

1. You don’t know which keywords your readers are using

 

The very heart of search engine optimization is understanding what people are searching for online and aligning your own content to those searches.

Cerf on science: The father of the Internet talks string theory, the physics of Angry Birds & more | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

When Vint Cerf talks about Google's upcoming global Science Fair, you can hear the infectious enthusiasm in his voice.

Again, Cerf sees some aspects of that fictional world becoming reality, especially with regard to the Internet of Things. “The Android OS is turning out to be of interest… in other devices, things that consume electricity, appliances around the house,” he said.

 

And of course, there’s Google’s revolutionary self-driving cars.

 

“We’re very proud of those cars,” said Cerf. “This is turning out to be an incredible period of time when we’re able to harness the power of computing in small devices and also harnessing huge computing power in the form of clouds.”
