SEO Training Dojo6,103This week our special guest will be +Bill Slawski who will be talking about 'Entity Audits'. Not sure what that is? Here's a teaser from Bill;"Before Google announced their Knowledge Base with their words about indexing things instead of strings, I was already working to make web pages "about" Something.We are seeing knowledge panels and rich snippets and sitelinks in search results. Special OneBoxes are also appearing more quickly.In response to those, we've been doing Entity audits for sites, where we look at entities that already appear on sites, and ones that maybe should appear but don't.We've been looking at what shows up when the name of a site, and the domain name for a site are searched for in terms of knowledge panels, related entities, sitelinks,  at the search engines. We're looking at what appears for these at places such as Wikipedia and Freebase an other knowledge bases.I have a couple of examples that I would like to share of how doing an entity audit can make a site richer, and potentially show up for more searches, including some changes on a site from 2005 that set me off on this path. :)"Friday SEO Chat - Entity Audits2014-08-15 19:00:0037

Mark's expertise in Authorship and understanding of search, coupled with his innate ability to educate and reduce complexities to simple "start here" ideas will make this particular episode a great learning experience for my students. Did I mention Mark also has experience with improv? You know he has a thing or two to teach my students about how to master the art of delivery!There are many components to public speaking, and it's usually the parts of delivery we tend to need to work on. Things like volume, appropriate movement and gestures, use of space, tone, and many others are the things many of us forget in our excitement anxiety to speak in front of a crowd. So how do we master these cues that seem like things you either have or you don't? Well, that's for Mark to answer ;)As always I'd also like to thank +John Ellis for running my cameras for me.Live Event URL:Glass in the Class: The Art of Delivery2014-06-25 22:30:0022

Ray Hiltz24,177How is Google Authorship relevant to your business?Google Authorship has been around since 2011 and while more and more people and brands have implemented “rel=author”, there is still a lot of confusion as to what exactly it accomplishes.Some think that it improves search results, others install it for the reported improvement in Click Through Rates (CTRs) by having your face appear on SERPs. Some because they hear it will improve their SERP ranking.To tell us the benefits of authorship and dispel some of the myths, the #GPlusLunchBunch  is very excited to have the authority on Authorship and all round nice guy +Mark Traphagen join us at our virtual lunch table.Mark is the Senior Director of Online Marketing at +Stone Temple Consulting.He is a prolific content creator and my chief source of information relating to online authority.He’s generous with his knowledge and time as is demonstrated by his many appearances on HOAs.If you have questions about authorship and want to know more, join us around the table. However, you’ll have to bring your own lunch (east coast), breakfast (west coast), dinner (UK).Recommended viewing: Mark’s SlideShare: Author Authority for Advanced Search Marketershttp://goo.gl/whr30CThis is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.

ISOOSI Research Engine3,458In the latest installment of the weekly ISOOSI Tuesday Chat we are joined by +Debra Mastaler - a true veteran of Internet Marketing.  Together, we shall discuss and explore ways to attract those all-important links and citations to a site or venture that is not yet famed or renowned.How Do You Attract Links Before  You Have Reputation?Years ago, +Mike Grehan (another true veteran marketer) wrote a superb article entitled "The Filthy Linking Rich", where he explained how the same sort of power law that applies to other resources, such as wealth, apply just as much to links.  Just as the rich get richer, so do those with lots of links get more exposure, and thus attract more links.We'll discuss that power law briefly, but mainly we'll focus on how to overcome it.  How do we attract links to a site that is newer, or has so far been seen as less authoritative (its cited less often)?This topic naturally follows from last week where we discussed Starting New Online Ventures, and has a strong relationship to getting that new venture up and running.  As always, expect some wonderful food for thought, and many practical insights.Join +Debra Mastaler   and the  #isoosichat regulars +Ammon Johns, +Bill Slawski, and +ISOOSI Research Engine How Do You Attract Links *Before* You Have Reputation?2014-05-20 21:00:0067

ISOOSI Research Engine3,458Special Guest:  Danny SullivanOne of the things that either makes people love or hate SEO the most is how things constantly change.  To those who have been in the industry more than 15 years, even all the pace of change today doesn't seem as extreme in many ways as the days when each month there might be yet another upcoming search engine, or the closure of a search engine you'd used to optimise for and got good traffic from.  In this epic Roundtable discussion, industry leader +Danny Sullivan  joins the regular ISOOSI panel (+Ammon Johns, +Bill Slawski and +Carlos Fernandes)   to talk about how change should be dealt with, anticipated, and adapted to.We'll look at the truth in the old saying "The more things change, the more they stay the same", looking at some of the constant factors of SEO, not least that people themselves have not (yet) changed nearly so much.We'll talk about wether Google's dominance is now too great to challenge, or if a serious potential rival is already out there, be it Apple, or some less-expected challenger.We will look ahead at some of the changes we expect, and discuss ways to deal with such changes.  We'll talk about the things we don't expect to change much over the next few years, which may therefore be the most 'future-proof' areas to invest in for value.We'll also talk about changes to the industry of web marketing itself, drawing upon Danny's insights running SMX as a sign of what people are most (and least) interested in learning today.Change: The Constant of SEO2014-03-25 20:00:00103

Jason T. Wiser16,322Storytelling for Business Building with Chris BroganThere’s a lot of talk lately about storytelling in business and for good reason. Stories help people to understand and relate to your business journey. Where did you get the idea? What was the first thing you did when you realized that you had a good idea? what worked? what was your biggest mistake? This program is produced by http://ontracktips.com/storytelling-business-building-chris-brogan/It’s the answers to these questions that interviewers love to ask because viewers want to experience the journey of the successful business owner. They want to imagine themselves walking this path and living this dream. But aside from telling your rise to the top story, what other stories can we tell as business owners? what other stories do people want to hear?That’s why I have invited +Chris Brogan  to “Get on Track, Stay on Track” because Chris is passionate about small business and he understands the value of telling story for branding, for marketing, for business.Chris is the Author of "Trust Agents", "Google+ for Business" "The Impact Equation" "Social Media 101" and the soon to be released "The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth" http://jtw.bz/ChrisBr (affiliate link)Some of the questions I’m going to be asking Chris are:⇒ Other than your rise to the top story, what day to day stories can we tell in marketing?⇒ What are some of the best examples of companies that are using storytelling in business today?⇒ How much of your personal life do you share in your business story?If this interests you, start asking questions now AND Invite 2 friends!---------------------------------------------------------------------------------  Did you click "Yes" on the event invite?Catch past interviews  http://ontracktips.com and look for the big RED button.Upcoming Guests:⇒ Andrea Vahl "How to Find clients"⇒ Phyllis Khare "Time Management for Small Business Owners"Subscribe to "Get on Track, Stay on Track" on YouTube -http://jtw.bz/YouTubeOTT Listen to our Podcast in iTunes http://jtw.bz/iTunesOTT Join us on Twitter using the hashtag    #OnTrackTips   ========Storytelling for Business Building with Chris Brogan2014-03-06 19:00:00244

Jess + Scott + You279Last week we unleashed the power of the story.Next week we'll find out about a story in the correct place and time.This week, be it painful or blissful, stories are only effective when received.Believe it or not, your business tells a story, and we don’t mean to your customers. We mean to you. Are you listening? Do you even know what to listen for? To do what? MORE, right? Well, what does that actually mean?This week +Jessica Dewell and +Scott Scowcroft will explore what your business can tell you, and if you don’t like the storyline? Well, that’s part of this week’s show too.Who better to help us explore and dig into this topic than +Jason Frasca? He loves solving technical, operational and business inefficiencies using my unique ability to deconstruct complex problems, and leveraging technology to optimize business performance.Whether looking for new opportunities, ways to grow, building processes, acquiring expertise…first, check in with the business. It gladly gives us information, clues, and areas to explore. Yet, we overlook this attention our business shines on us.Receiving, or active listening, to the business will help identify low hanging fruit (easy to implement ideas), cost savings and time savings.Let’s give our business a bit of love back through active listening - and see how we can tune in and magnify the things that could hold us back or propel us forward by learning how to listen and receive important information.Spoiler Alert: Jason’s in depth knowledge of the how and why of Evernote  allows him to share how operational competency and narrative can touch at the deepest level to create great stories.This is one episode of the JSY! show you’ll not want to miss.YOU (the Y in JSY) matter - come and explore this topic with us. Start the conversation now.(We are a LATE show. Responding Yes or Maybe will set a reminder so you can catch the replay if it isn't a time you can join us live.)*Hashtag: #JSY *Like the topic?

martin shervington660,753Who wants to join me as I interview Jay Baer about his New York Times best selling business book?We will be talking about the attitude/culture/approach of 'helping', including how Jay finds the culture on Google+; where he thinks we should be putting our attention right now, and where it is going in the future.Whether you are a business or an individual looking at your own approach, this should be a lot of fun and give you new insights too!What is 'Youtility' all about?Jay says..."The difference between helping and selling is just two letters. But those two letters are critically important to your company’s success.You’re not competing for attention only against other, similar products. You’re competing for attention against everything. To win in this hyper-competitive environment, you must ask “How can we help?”If you sell something, you make a customer today, but if you genuinely help someone, you create a customer for life. This is Youtility."Sound good? See you then!An interview with Jay Baer about his book 'YouTility"!2014-02-25 20:00:0077

ISOOSI Research Engine3,458+Mark Traphagen joins the ISOOSI chat today at 3pm EST and we're super excited to have him on the show. Mark has been one of the people for me personally (and I know for many others too) that has really been instrumental in highlighting the benefits of Google+. But, not only the easy pickings that are clear to see. Mark evangelizes the use of Google+ as not only a business network but a social network. A social network that is on a different level to anything else we have on the interwebs. He'll be the first to say that it has given him opportunities that would never have existed before it.

He's pretty sure Stone Temple CEO Eric Enge added "senior" to Mark's title as a veiled reference to his age. He lives in Durham NC, which he regards as Portland OR without a web parody (yet).Mark has been active on Google+ since its third day and has developed a reputation as an expert on using Google+ for business and personal branding, as well as on Google Authorship.When he's not singlehandedly trying to eliminate Google+'s "ghost town" image by posting there at least once every 10 minutes, you'll find Mark playing mandolin in a New Orleans-style second line band called The Bulltowns Strutters, and competing in storyslam events.This week's show is sponsored by:+CT Social  is an interactive digital agency based in Central Florida. We provide web design and optimization, social media management and consulting, mobile apps (Apple / Android / Windows 8), and graphic design for web promotions.

Dr. John Cassone12,100Dr. John's Selectgood content and engagementThese are people I follow, engage with, and suggest for my new followers who want quality people in their stream. This circle changes each time I share it based on how people are engaging and sharing content.This is not a megacircle.People are only added based on good content or my experience engaging with them.Best way to sort and manage your stream:1. add new circle2. follow it in your stream separately 3. engage with those that interest you (good content/interaction)4. cherry pick those you like and make your own circles5. let go of the rest (or put them in a circle that's dialed down on your stream)If you add too many people too often then you will not build meaningful connections which is the point here.Circle Management Basics:1. Circles control who you follow:►   I might feel like reading the news so I have a news channel circle. I don't build relationships with these pages but follow them and share content when interesting. This way I can completely control my stream based on my mood.2. Circles control who your share to: ►   Share to your interests: I like martial arts but most of my followers do not. By collecting a circle of others that like martial arts I can share specifically to those interested in this topic and not bore anyone.►  I have also collected an "inner circle" of g-peeps that I have gotten to know and share more person pics and info with.3. Control your stream flow:►   When you click on a specific circle in your stream you can adjust how much the posts from that circle appear in your "everything" stream. ►   Organize people based on flow: I have three main circles called 1, 2, and 3. I have the amount of flow dialed in priority (circle 1 is high, 2 is medium, and 3 is low). I move people between circles based on the progression of our relationship. ►   Notify circle: I have another circle with people that I don't want to miss a single post from. This circle is set to notify me whenever someone from it posts. This is a great way to focus on building a relationship with specific people.Happy Plussing :)2014-09-07 19:22:331921015

Dr. John Cassone11,938Dr. John's August Selectgood content and engagementThese are people I follow, engage with, and suggest for my new followers who want quality people in their stream. I've also included some of my new engagers.This is not a megacircle. People are only added based on good content or my experience engaging with them.Best way to sort and manage your stream:1. add new circle2. follow it in your stream separately 3. engage with those that interest you (good content/interaction)4. cherry pick those you like and make your own circles5. let go of the rest (or put them in a circle that's dialed down on your stream)If you add too many people too often then you will not build meaningful connections which is the point here.Circle Management Basics:1. Circles control who you follow:> I might feel like reading the news so I have a news channel circle. I don't build relationships with these pages but follow them and share content when interesting. This way I can completely control my stream based on my mood.2. Circles control who your share to: > Share to your interests: I like martial arts but most of my followers do not. By collecting a circle of others that like martial arts I can share specifically to those interested in this topic and not bore anyone.> I have also collected an "inner circle" of g-peeps that I have gotten to know and share more person pics and info with.3. Control your stream flow:> When you click on a specific circle in your stream you can adjust how much the posts from that circle appear in your "everything" stream. > Organize people based on flow: I have three main circles called 1, 2, and 3. I have the amount of flow dialed in priority (circle 1 is high, 2 is medium, and 3 is low). I move people between circles based on the progression of our relationship. > Notify circle: I have another circle with people that I don't want to miss a single post from. This circle is set to notify me whenever someone from it posts. This is a great way to focus on building a relationship with specific people.Happy Plussing :)2014-08-07 14:37:331779413

A Fascinating Social Experiment...with a Surprise Ending

YouTuber +JaclynGlenn and friends created a little experiment on a busy city street. 

One day they went out to raise money for a children's hospital. Their sign said "Southern United Methodists donate to..." with the SUM cross and flame logo. Many people gave cheerfully. They encountered no overt negativity.

The next day the same two women went to the same spot to raise money for the same charity. The only difference: the word "Methodist" was changed to "Atheists" and the logo was changed to an atom symbol with an "A" in it.

On the second day they were suddenly scorned, vilified, given bad looks, and rejected by most passersby. They had far, far fewer donors that day.

But wait, that's not the end of the story. View to the end for somethingt... more »

Are (Were) You Ready for Google Me?

Thanks to the Timehop app I was reminded that four years ago today I wrote a blog post "Are You Ready for Google Me?" covering the first leaked rumors about what 10 months later we would know as Google+. Google Me was the first rumored name for the platform.

How Google's Authorship Project Was Like SETI

A brilliant piece by +Eli Fennell that helps us understand the immense difficulties Google faces in trying to understand author identity and authority. Eli compares it to the SETI (Search for Extra Terestrial Intelligence) program, which searches for what would be almost infinitesimally small signals amongst the vast cosmic background noise.

A long one, but worth the read if you want to understand these issues and where Google may be going in the future.

Survey: Facebook Users Getting Less Enchanted?

+Eric Enge of +Stone Temple Consulting has just released an updated version of a survey of Facebook users he ran a year ago. Read the new data at http://stonet.co/FBUsageSurvey

Eric says, "Compared to our sampling last year, less people want to publicly interact and more people are getting frustrated with Facebook’s privacy policies and commercialization. In general we saw a small decline in overall satisfaction with the experience that is Facebook. There seems to be very little branded recognition of some of the major features that Facebook has implemented over the years, namely their video option for chat and Graph Search."

What do you think? Do you think users are becoming gradually disenchanted with Facebook? Does it surprise you that a large number of these users were unaware of some of Facebook's most trumpeted innovations?

Get Social-Based Scottish Independence Vote Predictions on Bing

We pay a lot of attention these days to Google's Knowledge Graph and Knowledge Vault projects, but Bing has been developing some interesting "instant answers in search" feature of its own.

Among those is its prediction experiment based on data from searches and social media. Since such data has been shown to have high predictive value for things like epidemic disease outbreaks (http://goo.gl/BxNVQA), it's worth some attention.

In this example, Bing is using such data to make real-time updated predictions about the outcome of Thursday's vote by Scottish citizens on whether or not Scotland should become an independent nation. As most other polls are showing, the vote is currently too close to call.

Website Security, SSL & Google Search LIVE

A truly top-notch panel assembled by +Mark Vang for this show later today.

Recently Google announced that HTTPS may be used as a ranking signal for Google Search.

Over the past few months we’ve been running tests taking into account whether sites use secure, encrypted connections as a signal in our search ranking algorithms. We've seen positive results, so we're starting to use HTTPS as a ranking signal. For now it's only a very lightweight signal — affecting fewer than 1% of global queries, and carrying less weight than other signals such as high-quality content — while we give webmasters time to switch to HTTPS. But over time, we may decide to strengthen it, because we’d like to encourage all website owners to switch from HTTP to HTTPS to keep everyone safe on the web. Read the full post here: http://goo.gl/AiXFbk

Is Google+ All Marketing & Sales Content?

The post below generated a lot of discussion last night. If you have some thoughts, please share them on the OP.

#plusonly  

Is Google+ Just All Marketers Now?

That's an allegation I've been hearing lately, that "there's nothing but marketers on Google+" these days.

Is that true?

I decided to do a little non-scientific survey, but I invite you to try it for yourself. Of course, every person's home stream is going to be influenced by who they have circled, but if anyone's stream should be skewed toward marketers, it should be mine. After all, that's the main reason I'm on Google+, and I do follow a lot of marketers. 

So is my stream "all marketing all the time?"

I just went through my stream and counted posts as they came. I ended up with 88. As I went through, I categorized them. I was intentionally generous with the Marketing category, counting anything that had vaguely to do with that topic, including things like social media posting tips.

Here are my results, in descending order of frequency:

Marketing 17
Personal 16
Science 12
Tech 10
Entertainment 9
Food 7
Pop Culture 5
News/Politics 3
General photography 3
Health 2

Yes, marketing was #1, as you'd expect for me. But it was just 19% of this sample of posts from my stream.

In other words, I have no trouble viewing a nice variety of content in my Google+ stream.___Is Google+ All Marketing & Sales Content?

CircleCount May Have the Smoking Gun on Google+ View Count Jump

We've been getting anecdotal evidence from users all day that seemed to confirm the theory of +Gideon Rosenblatt that this past weekend's big jump in view counts for many (but not all) G+ users was because Google finally added in views from before October 2012.

Now +CircleCount may have given us the smoking gun proving that theory. Here's the data they've provided:

100 "old" profiles [1]:
Avg Views on 11th Sep. 2014: 106,343,933
Views Growth from 11th to 15th Sep. 2014: 56.2%

100 "new" profiles [2]:
Avg Views on 11th Sep. 2014: 33,232,499
Views Growth from 11th to 15th Sep. 2014: 2.6%

Huge Jump in Google+ View Counts

Over the weekend a number of Google+ users noticed a huge jump in their view counts. In my case it lept up by about 1.3 million views.

At first I speculated that Google+ had just found a bug in their view count database and had done a mid-course correction. But today +Gideon Rosenblatt came up with an intriguing theory which I think may in fact be the explanation.

Gideon noted that his count jumped by 7 million, more than doubling his viewership. He then added two more facts:

1. He had been a lot more active on Google+ in its early days.
2. When view counts were introduced, we were told that they only went back to October 2012 (see http://stonet.co/gplusviews)

Given those facts, it seems possible that what happened here was Google finally extending views back to an earlier point in time.

Any comment +Yonatan Zunger?

As you can see, profiles that would have been accumulating views from before October 2012 [3] experienced a significantly high jump in views this weekend, whereas profiles established since then had growth that could be considered normal.

[3] When view counts were introduced a Google+ staffer told us that the counts only went back to October 2012.

It's no surprise to me that his career has taken him from content strategy at Nature Conservancy to REI and now at Facebook.

In this entertaining and enlightening slidedeck, Jonathon gives us a rousing call to be better and smarter with our content. He shows us Facebook's methods to build content that succeeds by design, not accident.

Highly recommended!

Free Is Fine; Forced Rarely Is - Hey Apple!

As I commented on +Jeff Sayre's post, I don't think the problem here was so much "free" as it was "forced." What I saw most people who complained objecting to was the fact that Apple placed the music in their purchased folder without their consent. 

If the content had just been offered for a free download, I doubt there would have been all this uproar.

The lesson here I think is: people still like free, but they never like forced. Earn your way to people wanting to opt in to your free content or offers.

Sometimes Free Is Not Good

Even global marketing behemoths like Apple still can learn lessons when it comes to their customers' likes and dislikes. Apparently the friendly, and seemingly very nice, gesture of giving away for free to each and every iTunes user U2's newest album Songs of Innocence has caused a stir.

Based on the "hordes of iTunes customers loudly voicing their displeasure", Apple has created a special Songs of Innocence removal page. Well, perhaps free is not always good.

Why You NoFollow Me?

Years ago Google began allowing the marking of links with a "no-follow" attribute that indicates Google should pass no PageRank authority via that link. The attribute had a limited set of intended uses, but lately some sites seem to have gone "mad" with it, plastering it on virtually all outbound links, especially for those on guest posts.

This is likely in response to misplaced fears about possible Google penalties.

In his LinkedIn article linked below, +Eric Enge makes a case that this was never the intended usage of no-follow, and that the abuse of the attribute harms relationships, cuts off good content sources, and ultimately hurts the web.

#seo   #linkbuilding   #plusonly  

Stop the NoFollow Madness!

There are many good and valid reasons to have the NoFollow attribute for links.  It's great for:

1. Any user generated content, including social postings, blog comments and forum comments.
2. Advertising.
3. Any other links you don't want to pass PageRank too.

However, sites all over the place are now NoFollowing all of their links. To me this violates a basic social principle of the web, that of an exchange of trust.  If I show my trust by giving you an article to publish, then what I ask in return is that you send trust signals my way too.

A Fascinating Social Experiment...with a Surprise Ending

YouTuber +JaclynGlenn and friends created a little experiment on a busy city street. 

One day they went out to raise money for a children's hospital. Their sign said "Southern United Methodists donate to..." with the SUM cross and flame logo. Many people gave cheerfully. They encountered no overt negativity.

The next day the same two women went to the same spot to raise money for the same charity. The only difference: the word "Methodist" was changed to "Atheists" and the logo was changed to an atom symbol with an "A" in it.

On the second day they were suddenly scorned, vilified, given bad looks, and rejected by most passersby. They had far, far fewer donors that day.

But wait, that's not the end of the story. View to the end for somethingt... more »

Why Your Community Posts are Flagged as Spam

What +John Skeats shares here matches up with what I've seen moderating multiple communities.

#plusonly

Why Your Community Posts Might Be Flagged As Spam

Many people ask why their posts to Google+ communities are flagged as spam by the Google+ spam filters. Google doesn't share details about how the spam filters work work (because that would make it easy for spammer to stay just on the legal side of what the filters would block and annoy us all), but we know -- or at least believe we know -- a few things based on observation:

* Identical or substantially similar posts shared or reshared with multiple communities are more likely to be flagged as spam, especially if they are shared/reshared  within a relatively short period of time. To avoid this, I recommend never sharing similar material to more than three communities within about a two-hour period.

* Posts which contain only links or links with only a minimal amount additional information (also known as "link litter") appear to have a higher probability of being flagged as spam. Such posts violate the rules in many communities. As an aside, there are also strong indications that posts like that also have an extremely low click-through rate.

* Posts which are identical or similar to posts that have been removed from multiple communities for violating the communities' rules appear to have a higher probability of being flagged as spam. It is extremely important to become familiar with a community's rules before posting in the community because the rules vary significantly between communities, and a pattern of violating the rules in some communities might affect your posts to other communities.

* Posts containing the same link or similar links (e.g., links to other posts in the same blog) as posts which were previously flagged as spam appear to have a higher probability of being flagged as spam.

* Posts which are reshares of non-community public or private posts which were reported as spam appear to have a higher probability of being flagged as spam. Note that selecting the option for email notification when sharing non-community posts can lead people to report the posts as spam because many recipients do not appreciate the unwanted emails. You should virtually never use that option unless people have asked to be notified by email.

* Posts by individuals who have previously been identified as spammers by the spam filters have a higher probability of being flagged as spam. If you get indications that your posts are being flagged as spam, it is best to review and change your posting habits promptly. The longer you persist in the same behavior, the longer the spam filters appear to treat you as a spammer. In serious cases, it can even lead to your account being suspended or revoked. 

What happens if your community posts are flagged as spam
When the Google+ spam filters flag a post as spam, it is held in a moderation queue which is only visible to the community's moderators. The moderators then have three options: Approve, which makes the post visible to all community members; Remove, which removes the post from the community; or to Remove, Report, and Ban, which removes the post from the community, reports it to Google, and removes the user from the community. Banned members cannot join the community again unless and until a moderator removes the ban.___Why Your Community Posts are Flagged as Spam

Here are our recent highlights:

Authorship Adoption Fail: The Detailed Stats 
In their co-authored article about the rise and fall of Google Authorship (http://stonet.co/AuthorshipDead) +Mark Traphagen and +Eric Enge stated that one likely reason Google finally abandoned rel=author-based markup as a means of tracking authors was low adoption by authors and publishers. Now in a detailed study +Eric Enge presents the stats to back that up.

So....they are challenging us to step in and they've turned it into a contest to find "The World's Greatest Guest Blogger!" If you have a knack for writing and know something about the online marketing world, check out the details at http://stonet.co/ZkDohA

This one video will help you discount a great deal of what gets shared on your Facebook or Google+ feed each day. 

The tl;dr - coincidences, even very improbable ones, happen all the time. A coincidence is not in and of itself the proof of anything extraordinary, supernatural, or spooky. The video gives many examples. 

Understanding the ways our brains fool us into seeing patterns, confirming already-held beliefs, and excluding that which doesn't fit our beliefs can not only help us clean up our social media streams, it can help us learn to challenge the basis of many of our own cherished beliefs. #plusonly

Ann can't make you an expert, but if you genuinely are one (or are in that process), her guide shows you how to put yourself in a position where it is more likely bloggers will call on you to be part of their expert interviews and "best tips" compilations.

Similar to conference speaking or writing opportunities, you've got to be willing to start small and humble, and earn your way up the ladder.

Setting Priorities to Improve Search Rankings

The +Stone Temple Consulting  #throwbackthursdays  post this week is an interview from early last spring of Bing's Duane Forrester. 

If you've ever had the chance to talk with Duane at a conference, you know that he is refreshingly candid and as forthright as he can be. He has a former webmaster's zeal for truly helping webmasters.

5 Keys to Improving Search Rankings with Bing's Duane Forrester

Our #throwbackthursdays  post this week is from March of this year, when +Eric Enge asked Bing's Duane Forrester to share how he tells webmasters they should prioritize their efforts in order to rank better with search engines.

His order of priorities may surprise you. From most important to least:

1. Produce valuable content on a regular basis.
2. Build a strong audience on social media.
3. Improve the user experience on your site.
4. Encourage opportunities for good, natural links to your site.
5. Fine tune your on-page and site-wide SEO.

Many webmasters would probably but #'s 4 and 5 at the top. Read Duane's complete interview for his argument on why he reverses that.
