SEO And Social Media Get Married

SEO And Social Media Get Married | Now we're going the right direction | Scoop.it

There is a lot of talk around the web these days about the convergence of Social Media and SEO, but I feel like what has happened with social and search is more like a marriage, and they skipped the engagement period altogether.

 

It is merely a convergence of technology and methodology.

Ashok Padhye's curator insight, December 26, 2012 1:53 AM

I disagree with this opinion. While it is true that social signals continue to gain importance in search, Social Media goes far beyond search.Social Media is about conversations and group interactions on the personals side and brand building and reputation management on the business side. As platforms like Facebook, Google+ and Pinterest continue to evolve, they would continue giving even more 'social' functionality. Search signals are only a side benefit of increased social engagement. Those who are looking at social engagement purely for benefits in search need to understand the basis of social media better.

 

Well, that's just my opinion. But would like to hear if you agree / disagree.

A microalgae lamp that absorbs CO2

Shamengo pioneer Pierre Calleja has invented something truly remarkable--a light powered by algae that absorbs CO2 in the air--at the rate of 1 ton PER YEAR, or what a tree absorbs over its entire lifetime! The microalgae streetlamp has the potential to provide significantly cleaner air in urban areas and revolutionize the cityscape.

How Content Length Affects Rankings and Conversions

How Content Length Affects Rankings and Conversions | Now we're going the right direction | Scoop.it

Around a month ago Neil Patel ran a Crazy Egg test, which showed that most people weren’t scrolling and reading the copy on NeilPatel.com.

Because of the data he decided to run an a/b test on the homepage.

 

The current homepage has 1292 words, plus the form fields are way below the fold so He felt it maybe decreasing my conversion rate.

 

He created a new version of the homepage, as seen below, that only contained 488 words and form fields higher on the page.

Quality over quantity is key when it comes to content creation and SEO, and conversion rates.

Very interesting test here. I'll bet you guessed the shorter version would win out. I know I did because the opt-in form was higher up on the page. We're both wrong...

Math and physics behind Felix Baumgartner’s jump from space, falling faster than the speed of sound

Math and physics behind Felix Baumgartner’s jump from space, falling faster than the speed of sound | Now we're going the right direction | Scoop.it

Earlier this month, on a nice day, Felix Baumgartner jumped from 39,045 meters, or 24.26 miles, above the Earth from a capsule lifted by a 334-foot-tall helium filled balloon (twice the height of Nelson’s column and 2.5 times the diameter of the Hindenberg). Wolfram|Alpha tells us the jump was equivalent to a fall from 4.4 Mount Everests stacked on top of each other, or falling 93% of the length of a marathon. At 24.26 miles above the Earth, the atmosphere is very thin and cold, only about -14 degrees Fahrenheit on average. The temperature, unlike air pressure, does not change linearly with altitude at such heights. As Wolfram|Alpha shows us, it rises and falls depending on factors such as the decreased density of air with rising altitude, but also the absorption of UV light by the ozone layer.
