Is Google Code In Trouble? No More Open Source Downloads For You

Is Google Code In Trouble? No More Open Source Downloads For You | YUTech News | Scoop.it

Google Code got started back in 2006 as an alternative open source code hosting repository and 
collaborative development site. At the time of its creation, I had thought that it would competitive with Sourceforge (which it was), but as it turns out Sourceforge will now get the last laugh.

Time for a New Definition of SEO

Time for a New Definition of SEO | YUTech News | Scoop.it

SEO in the digital marketing mix is here to stay. Standardizing a definition of SEO will help buyers better understand the importance of it, the reason for committing to it, and the short- and long-term impact an SEO strategy has on a web presence.

 

Is Web Presence Optimization the Evolution of SEO?

So what is an accurate description of SEO given the changes to the industry?

 

Web presence optimization is an all-encompassing approach to optimizing an entire web presence for organic search including the website, social channels, blogs, articles and press releases. Where strategies, techniques, and tactics are still used, but content marketing and social media are strongly incorporated.

I'm not sure I agree with this 100%. I have always focused on quality content before SEO tactics. Now Google thinks this is valid, hooray. It's an interesting pyramid diagram, but I believe places too much emphasis on technical SEO. Quality content wins and Google's SEO modifications now reflect this.

In fact, there was recently one very good blog, TeachPaperless, dedicated to this very idea.

SoundCloud Sounds Like MAGIC
I'm in my honeymoon period with my new iPad. You know that first week when you load 100 apps most of which you will never open or use. One new app I encourage people and e-commerce merchants to explore is SoundCloud.

SoundCloud is a sound sample of the world. The app's UI is easy to use and its catalog of User Generated Content (contributed sounds) is big and sure to get bigger.

WHY?

https://soundcloud.com/pwhitty/listening-to-the-wind-through

I just tweeted the sound of wind blowing in tall grass. A few birds squawk and sing, time passes. It sounds like grassy dunes next to a beach, but the beach and the waves are far enough wind and birds dominate.

Impossible to listen to pwhitty's magical 10 minute recording and feel anything other than more relaxed than when you started. Sounds are such a powerful artistic medium unused in contemporary e-commerce.

SoundCloud will fix that since its possible to curate sound in the same way we curate images or video. Sample, edit, tag and mix to tell a more complete story, set a mood or help illustrate our words and images.

What is the power of a few sample of pwwhitty's magical ten minutes of wind and birds moving tall grass? Think a 3x or 4x increase in conversion not to mention a whole new dimension to User Generated Content (UGC) for contests and games.

Ask your visitors what SEO sounds like or provide a prize for the best summer vacation sounds and let UGC do it's #SEO and content marketing magic.

Kudos SoundCloud for hearing what only you heard and for creating such an elegant and seductive tool.

Felix Jacomino's curator insight, June 10, 2013 8:38 AM

I was looking for an easy way to have students and teachers put files in my dropbox account. Of course, there's http://DropItTo.me which allows senders to upload files through a web interface but on an iPad, that's limited to images and videos in your camera roll.

 

If only there was a way to email files to my dropbox directly. Well, there's https://sendtodropbox.com and that's exactly what it's for. The problem... the less than desirable email address you're given, like felix_9048rq@sendtodropbox.com. So I got to thinking.

 

Did you know that if you have a google mail address (gmail or your own domain), there's a neat trick that allows you to have more email address aliases without setting anything up? All you need to do is add a + and anything after it. For example: anything sent to felix+hello@jacomino.com will arrive at felix@jacomino.com. 

 

What I did next is, in my gmail settings, I added a forwarding email address and used the sendtodropbox address felix_9048rq@sendtodropbox.com. But wait, I need to verify that I own that account! Will that be a problem? Not without one little setting change. In SendToDropbox.com options, be sure to check BOTH "Include HTML email body (if available)" AND "Include plain text email body (if available)."

 

After doing so, send the verification email from your gmail > settings > forwarding and check your dropbox for the email body which will contain the verification code. 

 

Once verified, create a gmail filter. Mine was simple. Any email sent to felix+db@jacomino.com, forward to felix_9048rq@sendtodropbox.com. I also selected to skip the inbox and add a label, but that was my personal preference. Feel free to customize as you see fit.

 

I tested by sending a small file from another email address to felix+db@jacomino.com and voilà, it worked! The file is uploaded to Dropbox > Apps >Attachments folder.

 

I hope this helps and happy dropping!

Sue Osborne's curator insight, June 10, 2013 3:38 PM

Games mock realities that, at their best, can make players feel an emotion more powerfully than any other medium. You are the on-screen actor, and you control the game's plot through your actions. Having control means you're responsible, within obvious bounds, for what happens in the game, so achievements, failures, consequences and the emotions those come with, belong to you.

Content Is The New Search Marketing Currency

Content Is The New Currency For Smarter Search And Smarter Marketing - 06/27/2013

Via Martin (Marty) Smith
more...
Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, July 1, 2013 11:34 AM

Interesting to think of content as a currency. Content does act like a currency in a lot of ways including:


* Earns Interest (older content continue to contribute). 

* Costs lower over time (as engine gets more efficient and archive is built). 

* Returns multiply exponentially once authority is established. 

* Investment is required to have a chance to create authority. 

Content is like having a savings account when you were a kid. Your parents made you open it with your grannie's birthday money. The sum may have been so small you missed the BIG LESSON. 

The BIG LESSON is money only has one purpose - self replication via compound interest. Money's natural state is one of decay. Eaten away by inflation and other natural enemies money can wilt, dry up and blow away. 

The only way to overcome money's natural decay is to create a "money tree" that replaces the fruit you pick. Content marketing acts like money too. Its natural state is decay. You must tend your "content crops" with social support and links to "evergreen" or "tent poll" posts. 

Think of linking in like watering. When you water your content marketing crops they become strong and are able to fight off content marketing’s decay. The more sophisticated your engine is about watering the better off your content crop is. 

Features such as:

* People who've read X, also like Y.

* Similar posts "upsale" lists.

* Related posts "cross-sale lists.
* Most popular lists.

* Most commented on list.

 

By treating content as the "products" and "currency" it is your website and Internet marketing team is more likely to have content do the most magical thing - clone itself via social likes and shares. 

"Clone" isn't exactly right, but each social signal tells Google your content is valuable (no matter when it was created) AND prevents decay. Soon, when author rank is fully incorporated in SEO, your content will have generations of benefit it can gain or share. 

Content is the new "currency' of search marketing.
