16 Insights into Google's Rating Guidelines

16 Insights into Google's Rating Guidelines | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

Last week, when the SEO world was distracted by revelations that Google was blocking keyword referral data and nostalgic mania over MC Hammer’s search engine, Search Engine Land released a leaked Google document outlining Google's official guidelines for quality raters. I read the 125-page document out of curiosity, and I decided to share some valuable insights it contains into the mind of Google.

 

Sorry, No Secrets Here

If you’re looking for SEO “secrets,” you’ll be disappointed by this post. Although this is an internal document, and Google may not be happy about it being leaked, you won’t find a smoking gun here. What you will find is a training manual on Google’s philosophy of quality...

I Believe In Google Plus - Fast Growing Social Network in History

I Believe In Google Plus - Fast Growing Social Network in History | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

This is an insightful piece by Jon Evans for Techcrunch

 

Intro: He asks.....

 

"Is this a contrarian view? I can't even tell any more. On one hand, Google Plus now has 40 million users, it's the fastest-growing social-networking site in history, and its users have uploaded 3.4 billion photos."

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Can Facebook seamlessly do both, and be all things to all people?

 

Maybe, but that’s not the direction they’re going.

 

****Ironically, they’re doing things “the Google way,” betting on sweeping algorithmic solutions with their Smart Lists and Top Stories,

 

****while Google seems to be building G+ “the Facebook way,”

 

****around personal curation and social selection.

 

****The key difference is that, as moot aka Christopher Poole said the other day,

 

****our identities — and our relationships — are prisms rather than mirrors, multi-faceted rather than black & white.

 

Google Plus acknowledges this in a way Facebook doesn’t, and that’s a big part of why I believe it will ultimately succeed.

YouTube prepares to launch scheduled TV channels

YouTube prepares to launch scheduled TV channels | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

The Wall Street Journal reports that Google is getting ready to launch as many as a dozen TV-like channels with scheduled content to lure viewers away from their TV screens. It is said to have been shopping the ideas around US media firms for several months.  It is said to have cut a range of content deals and is paying “from a few hundred thousand dollars to several million to content creators to create and curate videos for a channel”.
There is no word on what these channels might be, but not hard to guess. YouTube already has a range of categories for some of the TV shows it features including entertainment, comedy, drama food, news and travel where visitors can watch clips or whole episodes.  Some of this content such as Five Neighbours is brand new programming while other stuff like Big Brother series 1 is archive material. Until now this has not been scheduled, which is the big change that YouTube is looking to make.

A very simple but vital G+ circling strategy

A very simple but vital G+ circling strategy | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

This wonderful piece was written by Michael Todd. Michael is so generous with strategy, please visit his website, you'll learn so much and maybe even make a great new friend! Thank you Michael....

 

BIO

@mqtodd on twitter

Empire Avenue, TokyoSpeaker, author, love promoter. CEO #NPO Index EAv http://ht.ly/4Jm1q Recovering Kiwi lawyer into raw food, juggling & daily #lifegasm xeeme.com/michaelqtoddhttp://michaelqtodd.com

 

He gives us great strategy on how to get our G+ house in order and build our presence there. Not to mention the fact that it is possibly the best place to get your content shared online.

 

Here's an excerpt:

 

We need to be very aware that the Google + API is about to open any day and that business pages and communities are also due for imminent release.

 

I have no doubt at all that G+ will go from strength to strength and become a very vital part of everyday life online for everyone. The reach and tools that Google has are overwhelming and we are about to see them all lined up. Blogger, Picassa, Gmail, Google Docs, Places, Images, You Tube, Search and more and more.

 

So up till today around 3500 people had circled me but my circles were all over the place. I had made too many I think and I had simply followed back everyone who had circled me. That would be my preferred policy but unfortunately there is a pesky 5,000 circling limit which we will all hit before too long.

 

**Now is the time to get it sorted out.

Google+ Suddenly Looks Pretty Busy for a Ghost Town

Google+ Suddenly Looks Pretty Busy for a Ghost Town | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

Don't count Google+ out just yet......

 

Google+ is opening up. The service that the enthusiastic and curious once begged to join is now open to anyone with a Google account, except those unfortunate Apps users (what’s up with that?). Users new and old also get to play with plenty of new desktop and mobiletoys to remind them what was exciting about G+ in the first place.

 

New APIs even let developers in on the fun.So what’s new? For starters, Google’s finally adding the biggest and most-requested no-brainer of all: search.

 

As you can see from the photo, in the search box that once found only other profiles, users can search over “everything” (i.e., the web), “people,” “Google+ posts,” or “Sparks” (the lightweight Google News front end embedded in G+).

 

Results can then be filtered by “most recent” or “Best of.” The algorithm determining “best” search results in G+ is unclear, but it’s likely some combination of best keyword matches, posts by users in your circles, plus +1 upvotes and/or reshares.

Would you like to make a bit of revenue from your blog? Here’s how you can make your content work for you by adding Google AdSense to your Tumblr blog.

 

Blogging can be serious work, and with your easy-to-use Tumblr blog, you might be posting more than ever. You may be writing about your beautiful vacation, sharing the newest wallpaper you designed in Photoshop, or explaining how to get your dog to quit barking at frogs.

 

Either way, your blog takes real time, and it might be nice to make a little money from it. Google AdSense has enabled bloggers around the world to get ad revenue from their content. The Tumblr Terms of Service require that your blog be used primarily for blogging, but they do allow you to use AdSense or other ad systems as long as that’s not the primary focus of your site...

Panda All Over Again? Google Freshness Update Impact

Panda All Over Again? Google Freshness Update Impact | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

Alex Petrovic reports:

 

"Under the new Google Freshness update, content that is updated much more frequently will be rewarded under the algorithm.

 

However, some opponents of the system have raised some doubts about what this will actually mean for search results.

 

For instance, the Google Panda update stopped many black hat techniques in their tracks such as keyword stuffing and directory listing with spam directories.

 

There was also some backlash with Panda, with many users saying that this particular update unfairly punished how to and wiki sites. However, the positive effect of Panda on search results and search engine optimisation both far outweighed the negatives – this was pretty much universally agreed upon by consumers and producers of online content alike.


Opponents of Google Freshness see a much higher probability for backlash with no positive effect. For instance, opponents say, simply making a small change to a page can give it a “freshness” update that will unfairly boost it to the top of search engine rankings without taking into account its relevance or true popularity. This would actually lead to huge decreases in relevancy and the ability of spammers and content with less gravitas to have greater presence in search results.


Google counters these critiques by saying that it has already incorporated search ranking factors that are tried and true in with the Freshness algorithm to reward content that is both fresh and good. They say that simply changing a small aspect of the page does not make it automatically become “fresh,” as opponents of the update say that it will."

It's official: Google+ will be connected to everything | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it

Are we surprised by this? What are the benefits and the downside for us as participants?

 

Good piece by Matthew Ingram Sr. Writer for Gigaom..........

 

Intro:

 

By now it’s become fairly obvious that Google’s new social network, Google+, is here to stay (unlike some of the company’s past efforts at being social): depending on which estimates you believe,

 

**Google+ may have as many as 50 million registered users, which is not bad for a three-month old product.

 

And the company has made it clear that it wants to use Google+ as a kind of identity platform for other things — hence the importance of its controversial “real name” policy.

 

**But it wasn’t obvious just how much was riding on the new network until recently, thanks in part to some comments made by vice-president of product Brad Horowitz, who said that in the future, Google+ and Google will effectively become inseparable.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

"Tying all that to my real name and my Google+ posts is another step down the road towards a potential personal privacy debacle.

 

**That’s the problem with the kind of ubiquity that Google wants for its Google+ network, and the downside of trying to copy (and improve on) a giant social network like Facebook: along with all of the benefits comes the risks and the inevitable backlash as well

 

**— and for a company that is already under investigation by the FTC for how far its reach extends, that may be a bit more than even Google can handle.

 

What do you think?

Google+ Growth Explodes

Google+ Growth Explodes | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it
Google+ users have in the last few days increased by almost 30% with 2 major events providing the catalyst to its growth. Facebook making significant changes that has angered users and Google+ opening its platform to the public.

 

Excerpt:

 

According to a survey being run on Mashable, 78% of users hate the new changes.

Users to Facebook who don’t like the changes are venting their anger by using the hashtag #newfacebook on Twitter when making their feelings felt in 140 character bursts. If you want to watch the comments fly by in the Twitter stream, then check it out… it makes interesting reading.

 

The timing is apparently working well for Google+ with Paul Allen estimating that the Google social networking has grown by 30% in just two days. Paul’s estimates of Google+ growth are based upon solid sampling methodologies that have proven to be very accurate in the past.

 

Facebook announced some major changes last week including significant modifications to its profile pages at the annual F8 Developers Conference.

 

Just a few days before that announcement Google+ decided to open its doors to the general public. I don’t think that is a coincidence!

 

The conference and some of the changes were already publicly known and Google was well aware of the conference timing.
