Patience in Life as in SEO

by | September 8th, 2009 | Posted in Search Engine Marketing, WebRanking News | Comments Off on Patience in Life as in SEO

My first born is now officially 3 days overdue. Am I patiently waiting? Heck no, not in the least. I’ve seem to have turned into a hyperactive child in need of his Ritalin at the end of a three day candy binge waiting for his habitually late sleeping parents to finally get out of bed on Christmas morning. Except I’m not even sure what day my Christmas is going to fall on. Yeah, I really am that bad off.

Facebook in the News – Adds Live Search and Acquires FriendFeed

by | August 11th, 2009 | Posted in Real Time Search, Social Media | Comments (1)

Facebook was making a little news on Monday, as they launched a new search interface that allows members to view all posted results from the entire network of registered Facebook users, or just results from current Facebook friends. This new “Everyone” filter is very similar to Twitter’s search feature, as it allows you to monitor the entire Facebook network for information and updates on real time news and events. This feature was tremendously popular during the recent Iranian elections, as it allowed users to stay up to date when information from other, more traditional media outlets was scarce.

This new agreement is expected to go into effect sometime in 2010.

7 Preferred Link Building Alternatives to “Link exchanges: The poor man’s SEO” by CNET

by | July 15th, 2009 | Posted in Link Building, Top 10 Lists | Comments (3)

Yesterday morning I received an email with a link in it to a new cnet article titled “Link exchanges: The poor man’s SEO”. Since link popularity building is an integral part of any search engine optimization campaign, I had to see what this longstanding publication had to say on the subject. I was more than a little shocked when I read the second sentence:

“Everyone else has to rely on the poor man’s search-engine optimization: the link exchange.”

I could hardly believe that cnet would seemingly recommend to website owners to participate in trading links to increase search engine rankings. There are many other free and low-cost link building alternatives that are actually endorsed by SEO professionals.

Bing and Twitter Sitting in a Tree

In an effort to get a leg up on Google when it comes to real time search, Bing has started integrating real time Twitter messages into their search results. According to their official blog, Bing will now provide results from a handful of the more “prominent and prolific Twitterers” coming from a wide range of spheres.

Twitter is the Freedom Engine?

by | June 16th, 2009 | Posted in Social Media | Comments Off on Twitter is the Freedom Engine?

twitter.comWhile Bing might be promoting itself as the decision engine, Twitter could make a play for being known as the “Freedom Engine”. According to an article previously posted in the Washington Times, the State Department last weekend asked Twitter to delay it scheduled maintenance this week, which would have cut daytime service to Iran on Tuesday, just as protests against the recent elections continue to gain momentum.
