5 Ways Google Is Changing SEO

5 Ways Google Is Changing SEO | Small Business | Scoop.it
Google has facilitated and accelerated this shift by changing the game in ways that help users find information faster and in a manner that emphasizes the giant's own products.

Bonnie Burns's curator insight, October 9, 2014 12:32 PM

Just a few years ago, search-engine optimization was widely considered a specialized knowledge of how to manipulate Google’s search rankings with clever, secret tactics. While that was an accurate assessment then, the SEO industry has matured. It is now a dynamic, multifaceted online-marketing discipline that transcends clever trickery, and has become an essential requirement of expertise for every online marketer.

Overdoing It: How to Optimize Exercise without Getting Hurt

Overdoing It: How to Optimize Exercise without Getting Hurt | Small Business | Scoop.it

When you start exercising after leading a physically inactive lifestyle, when you are overweight or have some other medical condition, your body is not accustomed to exercises. It lacks stamina and strength, and it will often fail to sustain or support even mildly demanding exercise. Your body has to be conditioned steadily, and only then can it regain its fitness. To avoid exercise injuries by overdoing it, you should be looking out for signs. The body gives numerous signals indicating wear and tear. If you can spot these signs and stop doing the same thing that is causing the body to react that way, then you can avoid exercise injuries by overdoing it.

The Best Startup Categories for Entrepreneurs and Investors – 2014 Edition | Small Business | Scoop.it

Yesterday TechStars NYC announced its 2013 class, selected from 1700 applicants from 420 cities.  That’s an impressive pipeline from which to recruit top-notch teams.  There are no ideas in that group of eleven that I personally have not already seen multiple times in the past couple of years, at least from what I can tell with the limited information available.  One is an app for pet lovers, and there were at least 50 of those that applied in 2011 to present at the SXSW Accelerator in 2012 and appeared in the subset I judged that year.  I’m not meaning to be critical here.  Every accelerator has its own model, and there has to a careful matching of that model with the goals of the applying teams.  The TechStars brand is top shelf, and I certainly presume all these companies have something worthy to justify their inclusion.

One way in which business owners can increase the engagement of their employees, is to look closely at how successful franchise groups help their franchisees to remain engaged with the franchisor's offering, and ensure that their staff are also engaged with the relevant brand.


This excellent article written by the leader of a franchise group, stresses that in any change process it is important to remember and value your employees in all of the changes you make, and it outlines 14 ways his group is approaching the employee engagement challenge in the coming 12 months.
