Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, January 18, 11:36 PM

Rather than prosecute and possibly imprison this clever young man, why not offer him a reprieve in exchange for his cooperation in destroying the websites of terrorist organizations?  That method was used by authorities years ago in the case of "Captain Crunch", a phone hacker who eventually ended up supervising in a high level security position in several telephone companies. "Crunch" had perfect pitch, so he could mimic the dialing tones of a phone and make free long-distance calls without leaving a "paper trail."  He was caught after a while, but was able to regain his freedom by helping to protect phone exchanges from his fellow hackers.  Perhaps, a similar scenario could be played out with this young fellow. It's worth a try. Aloha, Russ.

Wrote a long note about my frustration with how videographers sell their services that got sucked into the great vortex. These are great tips and I need 20 to 50 videos BUT I need each video to cost HUNDREDS not THOUSANDS.

Feels like someone should be able to appify video creation like Piktochart just did for infographics (review here http://sco.lt/5Lv4dt ). Wish a video vendor would solve the PAIN since learning to create my own feels like a bridge too far even though the need is a simple and templated one.

Top 8 SEO Trends and Techniques for 2015

Top 8 SEO Trends and Techniques for 2015 | technology | Scoop.it

Organic SEO is still a leading strategy for digital marketing in 2015. Many of the SEO techniques we’ve been using for years are still worthy of our marketing dollars — blogging, social media, and inbound marketing — for example.

 

Yet, the way we look at these old methods may be a little different.

- Effective blogging requires more than just paraphrasing the news of the day, throwing in a few keywords, and linking to another site; you’ll need to become a proven “thought leader” and answer people’s most pressing questions.

- Social media will not just be a dumping grounds for blog posts, but a place where you look for prospects who are talking about your products or services and connect with them in real-time.

- Linking will focus on seeking quality, branded citations, rather than just throwing your URL down in the comments section of a blog.Today, we discuss 8 SEO trends to look out for as you build your marketing plan for 2015....

YEAH! Local's curator insight, January 21, 6:45 PM

Mandy McEwen goes a little deeper hear then most about SEO for 2015.


1) Mobile is still the big topic.  Make sure your site is mobile responsive and can be seen on any phone or tablet with ease.


2) One High quality backlink is bettter than hundreds on non-relevant sites.  Want to see what your competitors are doing?  Use SEMrush.com to search the keywords and links your competitors are using to rank.


3) I am not sure I agree with Google not being the end all be all in SEO.  Until we get more traffic from the other search engines I think Google still is the one to worry about.


4) I believe exact match keyword ranking won't be as important as the ROI of having your site that ranks for that keyword making you money.  People are getting more detailed in there search and you.


5) Aim for more social engagement.  Put out great content that is optimized for your social media platform of choice.


6) We have been preaching using video for a while now and our company uses it for all our clients on a monthly bases.  Once the video is made make sure to optimize it to rank for the chosen topic.


7) Simplify your website to convert and give visitors a better experience.


8) Lastly don't overlook quality in your work.  It takes time to build and produce great content. Don't push out content just for the sake of it.

If you've ever used the internet in Japan or Taiwan, you know the pain of coming back to the US and having to endure our much slower "high-speed" internet.


Actually, the average internet speed of a society seems like a much better proxy for quality of life than more abstract things like per capita GDP, since GDP figures are fake, and internet speeds are real.
