I agree with one of the commentors on this post, that said, Google is doing this in response to the competition with FB et al. FB is making huge inroads in Googles once great monopoly.  You can still find keywords that will rank with reverse attack marketing and can learn about it here: http://www.reverse-attack-marketing.info

David Bennett's curator insight, October 11, 2013 6:34 AM

Quote from Danny Sullivan of Search Engine Land: "

Publishers allow search engines to index their content, which is used by the search engines as the core content they can put lucrative ads around.


In return, search engines have provided traffic to publishers and data on how those publishers are found. That latter part of the ‘deal’ was unilaterally pulled by Google.”""

The Discipline of Writing - Owner Magazine | Techie News From Around The World | Scoop.it

Many professionals recognize that blogging is a great way to develop their ideas and enhance their personal brand. But when you’re busy, writing even once a week can seem overwhelming. How can you find time to sit down and actually compose something worthwhile? I have a slightly unfair advantage: I started my career as a journalist and had to report and write 3500 words a week, or I’d get fired. (That’ll teach you to write pretty fast.) But I also have a few tips —writing habits, if you will— that I shared with Noah and they might work for you, too.

Pressing need for Indian institutions is not cloud storage, but tools to enable online learning

Microsoft Office 365 is nothing like any previous Microsoft product. Office 365 is a leap into the cloud by the company that has been better known for its products that brought office work processes to personal computers. Starting June, students in engineering colleges across the country will find themselves logging on to this product — a free offering from Microsoft — courtesy an order from the All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) that has drawn flak from advocates of software freedom.

'Wintel' on the wane: Intel goes Google

'Wintel' on the wane: Intel goes Google | Techie News From Around The World | Scoop.it
Intel has been synonymous with Windows PCs seemingly forever. But it's trying to change that in a hurry. Enter Google. Read this article by Brooke Crothers on CNET News.
Philip Verghese 'Ariel's insight:

The fact that Microsoft and Intel no longer rule the personal computing world isn't news. But what happens next is.

I'll start with a flashback from the early '90s. I remember attending the launch of Windows 3.1 when I lived in Japan. Kazuhiko Nishi, former friend and business partner of Bill Gates, made a statement that foretold the fate of the Japanese PC industry as well as the global PC market.
