On Track Tips | Wiser Sites1,695So earlier this week I’m cruising through my stream and come across this post by +Ryan Hanley  titled “Google Killed the Generalist.” I opened it up and started reading and I was like, “serious, Hanley! Are you kidding me?!”He started talking smack about the generalists - a sweeping attack. So you can imagine I got my feathers ruffled a little. It was haughty. It was condescending. It was an apology to generalists where he asked, “Are you a generalist? That’s too bad. Actually, I should say, I’m sorry. Google Killed the Generalist.” I had to write a rebuttal. I couldn't let this slide. You see, my company, Wiser Sites, is a bona fide generalist, general contractor, one-stop shop marketing agency. We hire specialists for our clients. We are generalists, and we are proud of it! I put up a rebuttal post that sparked a discussion with over 75 thoughtful and inspired comments. Then two more blog articles made reference to this “debate” and several posts and shares picked up on the discussion. ( see the post that sparked this here - http://jtw.bz/1nD6ZbU ) The conversation spilled over to Twitter where Hanley wrote “Wiser bout to get Hangout slapped. # GanuntletThrownLet’s do this! In case you don’t know, Ryan and I are good friends and we have a mutual respect. I called him up and said let’s do this on an HOA. Let’s talk about sensationalism - headlines written to reel the readers in, content that is written to incite an emotion, and how far is too far.This week we'll be talking about “Killer Tactical Marketing with Ryan Hanley of Content Warfare.”  He will help us understand how to “win the battle for attention online,” one headline at a time. See you there.========================================­==============Start asking questions now AND invite 2 friends!Did you click "Yes" on the event invite?Push The BIG red button - http://OnTrackTips.com Subscribe on YouTube - http://jtw.bz/OTTlistTweet This - http://jtw.bz/1urpzZgJoin us on Twitter using the hashtag -   #OnTrackTips  Future Guests:Dennis YuCynthia SanchezYifat Cohen and Marc GafniJay Baer Ian ClearyMark Traphagen========================================­­==============Connect with +Killer Tactical Marketing with Ryan Hanley of Content Warfare2014-09-08 19:00:00131

ISOOSI Research Engine3,476This week's #ISOOSIChat  will focus on Keyword Research as +Dan Shure joins the regulars on the ISOOSI roundtable panel - +Ammon Johns +Bill Slawski +Carlos Fernandes and +Erik Stafford. At ISOOSI, Keyword Research has always been an integral part of the overall marketing strategy for any project. We use keyword data to help generate ideas for content, to spot trends and to generally become more acquainted with the audience in question.   If you're selling cupcakes online would it helpful to know about all the types of searches for cupcakes. Maybe there's a type you don't sell that wouldn't be too difficult to make. If you're a retailer selling office furniture online and you found that there was a huge market for a particular type of office cubicle - but it was one you didn't stock...  wouldn't that alter your product range?   As with anything in marketing, having good data doesn't hurt.... even if you decide for other reasons that additional product choices are not viable, you have been able to make informed decisions based on data.whether we call it keyword research or not - it is critical part of market research i our opinion and one we put a lot of emphasis on within our own team. Because of this we have invested significant resources in developing our own in house software to do a lot of the data-mining. We use this to help our clients... however there are MANY tools out there for small businesses that are either FREE or cost very little that can get you on your way digging for new content ideas and opportunities... tools that help you learn more about search trends so that you can make the right choices when it comes to changes / improvements to products and / or services.+Dan Shure is the owner / founder of Evolving SEO - an SEOKeyword Research : Digging for Ideas & Opportunities2014-09-02 21:00:00129 
ISOOSI Research Engine3,476The Lifestyle Business with +Stephanie Calahan on #isoosichat  One of the fascinating trends of recent years is that of people leaving the 'Rat Race' of climbing the corporate ladder, and equally turning away from the traditional entrepreneurial alternative of pouring one's every waking moment into building a personal business empire.  Instead, we see more and more individual choosing a "lifestyle business".Don't make the mistake of thinking that if you have a traditional business, this topic has no relevance to you.  The real fact today is that the 'Lifestyle Business' is your biggest rival for attracting and retaining good employees.  No matter who you are in business, and no matter your own models, you need to understand the Lifestyle Business and how it affects your market, and your workforce.In this week's ISOOSI Tuesday Chat, we'll explain what a lifestyle business is, how it works, why it is such a growing trend, and how this impacts other business models at all levels.We'll have plenty of tips for those who want to develop their own lifestyle business to free up more personal time for friends, family and activities outside of work.  We'll talk about distractions, marketing, and all sorts of issues.As always, we love to have your comments too, so please join us and participate in the discussion with +Stephanie Calahan +Ammon Johns  +Bill Slawski and +ISOOSI Research Engine  #lifestylebusiness   #marketing   #entrepreneur  Links:G+ Hangout Event: Youtube version: Main Comment Discussion: ISOOSIchat: The Lifestyle Business2014-08-26 21:00:0047

She works with Fortune 50 organizations such as Chick-fil-a, Lowe’s, Sony, Playstation, Holiday Inn, and the list goes on. And as Pam says, “The goal for businesses and the people within them is not to “do social” but to be social. Even “being social” is often not enough. We must be socially relevant.”I love this quote. And I tell you what, you stop by the event and you are sure to get a ton more of these golden nuggets from Pam.And just like we say week after week right here at On Track Tips, it’s an absolute must for small businesses to define clear goals for their social media strategy and Pam says we have to leave those “random acts of marketing (RAMS)” behind!I am thrilled to have Pam - a social media and Twitter expert - in the house.

ISOOSI Research Engine3,476The #isoosichat  weekly Marketing Discussion hangout with special guest +Jim Hedger joining the regular panel of +Ammon Johns +Bill Slawski and +ISOOSI Research Engine Wishing SEO deadThe articles and stories proclaiming that "SEO is dead" have been a regular occurrence for so long that they are an in-joke in the industry.  While such articles can be easy to laugh off, many feel that they are just one sign of several that the reputation problems for SEO are at critical levels.+Jim Hedger describes himself as: " involved in the SEO field since the days of the dinosaurs" which puts him right alongside +Ammon Johns as one of those rare 'Living Relics' of the industry who manage to stay completely relevant despite all the changes. +Bill Slawski has been around almost as long too, but people like Bill too much to keep pointing out his age.We asked all three of these luminaries about their marketing plans for the rest of 2014 and none of them had "to be dead" on the list.  Obviously, this makes them a perfect panel for discussing the long running death wishes against SEO, the many attempts to create standards, and other reputation issues of Search Marketing.Join us as we examine just why SEO is perceived to have such a terrible reputation.  Why are 'standards' and 'regulation' so often asked for, yet also derided, suspect, and unacceptable?Links:HOA Event Page: http://isoo.si/Cg7w2 Watch on YouTube: http:ISOOSI Tuesday Marketing Chat.

Stephan Hovnanian35,428Social Proof - The Ultimate Showdown!Most of us have heard the phrase "social proof" and seen/read discussions on the value of "engagement" in getting additional audience attention and actions.But how relevant is social proof? Is social proof really a factor, and if so, a good factor?This battle is between two professionals, one standing on the side of Social Proof, and the other believing that much of it is malarkey:In the Red Corner: +Dustin W. Stout:Dustin is a proponent of social proof, saying that "if you saw two restaurants on the street, one with a line out the door, and one without, which would you want to go to for dinner?"Get Dustin's full thoughts on social proof in his popular blog post, This Changes Everything (http://goo.gl/P5t8GW)In the Blue Corner, +David Kutcher: In David's eyes, how your audience is earned will make a huge difference in the value that you derive from the audience you create, and whether it returns value to your goals (ROI) or is simply an exercise in Ego. In other words, seeing/experiencing value is more important than social proof, both for businesses and customers.Get David's thoughts on earned audiences here (http://goo.gl/uw5sDY)Your Moderator, +Stephan Hovnanian: Stephan is going to play Switzerland here, and hopefully keep these two passionate businessmen from jumping through their respective screens and getting physical. In the immortal words of the ref from Rocky IV, "watch the low blows, and the rabbit punches. In case of a knockdown, go to the corner I tell you to and wait until I tell you to come out."You!We want to hear from you, which is more important, social proof, or tangible value, or something in between?

ISOOSI Research Engine3,476Resistance to SEO - when professions collide with +Susan Finch  and +Michelle Lowery  In this show, we look at how and why some professionals, including bloggers, Usability types, web devs, and sales copywriters, have a negative and dismissive view of SEO.  Despite the success stories, and the huge demand for SEO generally across the board, the negative reputation in many places is still very apparent, with SEO professionals often still treated as though peddling snake-oil to the gullible.+Susan Finch  has said "Coming from a PR/Marketing background since way back, I've always felt true content was king. Never been a fan of working SEO. I'm in the dismissive corner due to watching the negative affect "SEO professionals" have caused clients and others. I've worked hard in the past with clients to undo the damage by the snake oil types. Has left a bad taste in my mouth."She's not alone.It is all too easy for SEO professionals inside 'the echo chamber' to hear primarily only from people who understand SEO and believe in it.  In the wider world, a great many people who have strong input on websites are quite dismissive of SEO, having primarily seen only the kind that appears in a million spam emails.+Michelle Lowery suggested the topic for this week, as she has close ties to the SEO world, but also gets to see the views that some other copywriters have about SEO.There are still a great many bloggers, for just one example, who think SEO is an unnecessary measure - you just create good articles and content and Google will figure it all out.  Others have read a few too many of the "SEO in 10 easy steps" articles who think that those ten steps are all there is.  No matter that around 80% of the websites hit by the Panda update were blogs and bloggers... It isn't just one-sided either.  There are many SEOs of varying skill levels who are dismissive of all the other facets of successful web ventures.  SEOs who mistakenly put an importance on rankings ahead of usability, or conversions - leading to a site that gets lots of people to see how much it sucks.  Heck, even very experienced SEOs sometimes make very dismissive or even disparaging rResistance to SEO - When Professions Collide2014-06-10 21:00:0096

Jim Munro17,170Why I think TechCrunch nailed it.I think Techcrunch is the pits, gutter journalism, but I also think Alexia Totsis was accidentally right when she diagnosed G+ as terminal. With only her deep throat's information to go on she would not have had enough to make such a huge call. She should have waited to make a careful analysis but that's not how techCrunch operates.I think what's happened since has borne out her wild guess though. She could not have known that Larry Page and Dave Besbris were about to go radio silent apart from a few feelgood and pr posts.The guy who said only two or three years ago "Google is Google+" or vice-versa, has now said in his farewell to Vic Gundotra, "In the meantime we’ll continue working hard to build great new experiences for the ever increasing number of Google+ fans." Sorry Larry but I come to G+ to hear from and learn from my friends as well as find a sounding board for my own opinions. I am not a "fan" and a "great new experience" for me would be a page that loads completely in a reasonable time. Vic Gundotra might as well have said that he'd grown tired of swimming up the waterfall. The new guard does not see G+ as a means of communication. It's clear that they see us as "fans" to be distracted by sparkly things. If they'd wanted to communicate and talk sense to their users, they would have done so by now. Google just failed the test of social media.I won't be leaving G+ until it's most valuable core features are withdrawn. Other ancillary features will live on because there's a compelling business case for them but I don't think it will take many years before some management drone sunsets the core functionality of G+. Much current growth has come from android, once Nokia starts taking big chunks of that market, I think it might be time to start looking for the green exit signs.It's no big deal, all that's required at present is to devise the exit strategy that I did not ever think would be needed. We'll be talking about this and other stuff in the Social Media Fridays HOA, starting in a few minutes.Social Media Fridays 2.2014-05-02 08:01:245 
ISOOSI Research Engine3,476Ep 23: The agency/client relationship is a complex and sometimes tricky thing. But most of us are on at least one side of such a relationship, and many of us may be on both sides at different times.  Getting these relationships right, making them successful, is something many of us not only struggle with initially, but constantly have to revisit and re-evaluate.Join us for a discussion of the weighty and important issues of how we select partners, or how we offer ourselves as partners to others.  We'll talk about how a company can select a good agency, and the slightly less discussed issue of how an agency needs to select and be choosy with clients.This is another fully interactive show, so please use the comments to raise questions, for our panel and for each other, and to talk about this tricky but fundamental part of business.Join +Tony Dimmock +Barrie Moran  and the +ISOOSI Research Engine    #isoosichat regulars +Ammon Johns, +Bill Slawski, +Carlos Fernandes and +Erik StaffordIs your online agency/client relationship successful?2014-04-29 21:00:0056

Bearman Cartoons73,859People Who Paid Attention to My July 1 Morning PostThis morning I posted a benign comment with no image wondering if people are engaged in G+ without images.  I said I would share a circle of anyone that commented and surprisingly many did.  OP: https://plus.google.com/103857459148999991693/posts/ThcDtFipGTDSO WHY SHOULD I CARE?You may ask.  I don't recommend ever blindly adding an entire group of people shared in a circle.  However, so many complain about the Ghost town of G+ where engagement is rare.  These are obviously people who are engaged in the platform.  So pick 5-10 and take a look at their profile.  If you like what you see, circle them and tell them I sent you.  If you don't, move on.What I learned- Circle shares aren't dead.  While many have been lost in communities there is still a place for specific, targeted Circle Shares on G+- Some of my commenters still think they are snarkier than me :)2014-07-01 23:04:169952455

Ian Archibald7,974Best Engagers on Google✚This is my 3rd oldest circle, created during the Google+ Beta days. There have been a lot of changes in this circle over the last 2+ years. This circle contains many faces that many of you won't know. Others who are very well known. Each have been selected because of their level of engagement either with me or with others. Those who know me know that I am about engagement and collaboration.For those who are in this circle and have not circled back. Please do so. It would be great to collaborate on related activities.  I will be reviewing membership in this circle going forward. I would very much like to keep you in this circle.For everyone else, I would ask that you please consider adding this circle to your own and to share it with people you've circled.  Of course, I would love to hear from you, so please comment and +1 below.If you find that you are not part of this circle, and would like to be, please consider engaging with me.  You can see I have a bit of room in this circle...so let's engage!It's an honour to connect with such amazing people that I would never have connected with on any other social platform.   #CircleShare   #CircleSharing   #sharedcircles   #therustyball   #circleoftheday  2013-12-03 19:24:413209615

Kai Saffron14,989Saffron's Starter Circle (Top 110)According to G+, this circle is the top 109 people I most regularly interact with, plus yours truly.  I think it's a good-sized circle for newbies to add if you want to liven up your stream, but don't want to be overwhelmed (as can happen with adding circles maxed at 500 active people.).    Remember, you can always uncircle someone later if it turns out they're not your cup of tea.  Think of it as auditioning people.  Like the old saying goes, "nothing ventured, nothing gained".  If you wait for your Faceborg friends to start using their long-abandoned G+ profiles (assuming they even have one), I can tell you right now you may be waiting a very long time, if not forever.  You get what you put into G+.  This platform isn't a collection of walled cities of unchanging social cliques, a.k.a. FB.  It's a social network for the purpose of networking, in the true sense of the word.  So jump in.  Be a leader, not a lemming.  Most of these people don't bite (unless you ask them to nicely).  This concludes our G+ Public Service Announcement. #SharedCircles   #GooglePlus   #GhostTown     #SaffronStarterCircle  2013-08-08 14:51:1311015511

I think this is a step too far.

2-step Verification is convenient to use and every user should take advantage of the higher level of account protection.

Maybe I am misunderstanding this article, I am happy to be wrong, but it seems to me that this is a proprietary solution that Google has "gone it alone" on. That's not useful, Google.

I'm still certain that 2 step authentication  is the first thing every user should implement but I'm equally certain that implementing anything that works only on Google is a bad thing.

Do you trust Google? I used to but I don't any more. What we see today is not the organisation that we all fell in love with.

UPDATE: Apparently my concerns are groundless. There was this update from Dave Sparks in the comment thread:

Remember when ello was a thing? :)

Well maybe it might be yet. I've been watching via google's site: query and today it's saying 547K (profiles?) indexed. Agreed that number is not meant to be accurate, but comparing itself to itself, the initial numbers were more or less static for a while but for the last 3 weeks it's picked up about 100K per week.

Who knows, maybe it's just because they'd reached a critical point and googlebot decided to index all they have. Who knows? :)

Is this planned to be the replacement for G+?

Google Inbox

Today, we’re introducing something new. It’s called Inbox. Years in the making, Inbox is by the same people who brought you Gmail, but it’s not Gmail: it’s a completely different type of inbox, designed to focus on what really matters.

Google Now + Gmail mashup from the looks of it. I want an invite!

UPDATE: Apparently my concerns are groundless. There was this update from Dave Sparks in the comment thread:

"+Jim Munro No, that's not how it works. Google has no control over the credentials for any sites other than google.com. Here's how it actually works:

You sign into a website that supports U2F using your current credentials (presumably account name and password). You request two-factor authentication from the site in your account settings (the actual implementation will vary based on the site). When prompted, you insert the U2F device into your USB port. The device generates a public/private key pair inside its tamper-resistant hardware. The private key is never exposed to the computer itself, so even if your machine is compromised, the private key is still safely locked away. The public key is sent to the site to be used for future authentication.

From this point on, when you log in from a new computer, in addition to entering your account name and password, you also have to insert the U2F device into the computer. The website issues a challenge using the public key that can only be answered by the device that has the matching private key. Additionally, for more security, you can set it up so that you have to insert the key every time you log into the website.

The great thing about this kind of security is that you need physical access to the key. Even if you leave the key in the computer, it is not possible to log in remotely because you have to touch the key (either just a touch or with a paired NFC device) to activate it.

None of these interactions go through Google's servers unless you are logging into a Google service. Google never sees public key (and even if it did, it wouldn't compromise the security), and nothing outside the key device itself ever sees the private key, which is why the security works."

Seems legit. :)

What we know about Penguin 3.0 according to Google's sources so far:

It started rolling out on Friday.
It finished.
It didn't finish.
It will continue to roll out for the next few weeks.
It's an algorithm rewrite.
It's just an algorithm refresh, not a rewrite.
It only affected 1% of US search queries.
It's a worldwide update.___Seems legit. :)

SEO: Penguin 3 Promotes Parked Domain.

You may not be able to see this but I see a useless parked domain at position 3 on google.com.au  from my location in Australia. I have added a pic below in case you do not get the same result.

While going through my Australian Top 100 Penguin change data I spotted a nice recovery. Hit by 2.1 and recovered in 3.0. So I naturally checked it out. It's now a parked domain!

The original owners still had the website running in May 2014 (Wayback machine) but have since let it drop. Whois shows last modification on Sept 29th which I would guess was the shutdown date. I guess they gave up on a Penguin refresh and moved on.

They had been creating backlinks using the anchor text graphic design brisbane and variants, which had worked until Penguin 2.1 got them.

But Penguin 3.0 has brought them back from the dead and they are back in the top 10 for that term. Why? If those backlinks were toxic why are they now helping?

Rumour is that Penguin 3.0 is using data from back in September. Maybe they shut down the website after the data grab and therefore did not show as parked.

Would you buy this domain, they are taking offers?___SEO: Penguin 3 Promotes Parked Domain.

You may not be able to see this but I see a useless parked domain at position 3 on google.com.au  from my location in Australia. I have added a pic below in case you do not get the same result.

Germany's intelligence service believes Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down by pro-Russian rebels using a missile taken from a Ukraine military base.

So maybe it wasn't the Russians after all. Doesn't that make Tony Abbott look like a fool?

The kind of world you will live in depends on situations like this one.

If the circumstances surrounding this article concern you, now is the time to think about what can be done about it or whether it might not be too late already.

Now this is the new world order. Protecting journalistic sources is now impossible. Furthermore the police are being used as tools of politicians to seize and cover up any evidence of their wrongdoing.

In case you thought all these new security laws in Australia et al were designed to deal with threat of ISIS terrorism, you would be mistaken. The true enemy of the Five Eye governments are the likes of Edward Snowden, investigative journalists and you, the general public.

New Zealand Cops Raided Home of Reporter Working on Snowden Documents

by Glenn Greenwald 

Agents from New Zealand’s national police force ransacked the home of a prominent independent journalist earlier this month who was collaborating with The Intercept on stories from the NSA archive furnished by Edward Snowden. The stated purpose of the 10-hour police raid was to identify the source for allegations that the reporter, Nicky Hager, recently published in a book that caused a major political firestorm and led to the resignation of a top government minister.

But in seizing all the paper files and electronic devices in Hager’s home, the authorities may have also taken source material concerning other unrelated stories that Hager was pursuing. Recognizing the severity of the threat posed to press freedoms from this raid, the Freedom of the Press Foundation today announced a global campaign to raise funds for Hager’s legal defense.

In August, one month before New Zealand’s national election, Hager published Dirty Politics, which showed that key figures in Prime Minister John Key’s National Party were feeding derogatory information about their opponents to a virulent right-wing blogger named Cameron Slater. Hager published evidence in the form of incriminating emails, provided by a hacker, demonstrating coordination between National Party officials and Slater. The ensuing scandal forced the resignation of a top Key ally, Justice Minister Judith Collins, and implicated numerous other National Party officials and supporters. Despite the scandal, the National Party won a resounding victoryin the election, sending Key to a third term as prime minister.

On October 2—less than two weeks after the election—detectives from a regional “major crime team” came to Hager’s Wellington home armed with a search warrant authorizing them to seize anything that might lead them to the identity of his source for Dirty Politics. The warrant shows that prior to the raid, a police “intelligence analyst” had studied Hager’s media appearances in an effort to discover information about his sources for the book, taking particular note of references Hager made to knowing the source’s identity.

While there is no evidence that Hager’s work on NSA documents was a factor in the raid, it is possible that authorities knew or suspected that he had been given access to some of those documents. Over the past several months, Hager has exchanged multiple encrypted emails with reporters at The Intercept which, if obtained by New Zealand authorities under a warrant, could have tipped them off to the existence of a relationship. When The Intercept reported last month on the activities of the nation’s surveillance agency GCSB, we made clear that we were working with local journalists on further stories, and it was widely speculated that Hager was the likeliest local candidate for such a partnership. At the time, Key expressed concern that future stories from the Snowden archive could jeopardize the country’s bid for a seat on the U.N. Security Council.

Whether or not Hager’s work with The Intercept may have partially motivated the raid, the situation underscores the dangers of using invasive law enforcement tactics against reporters—they impede the reporting process, render source relationships very difficult to protect, and offer the very authorities that reporters are attempting to hold accountable a window into their ongoing reporting. (The Intercept‘s collaboration with Hager will proceed.)

The raid at Hager’s home took place while he was out of town, visiting the University of Auckland to give a series of lectures. Six officers arrived at his home at 7:45 a.m., waking his 22-year-old daughter, who was presented with a search warrant as she answered the door.

Once they entered the property, detectives spent ten hours sifting through Hager and his family’s personal effects, making copies of any USB storage devices they found and seizing Hager’s computer, personal documents, a camera, a dictaphone, CDs, and dozens of other items—not to mention his daughter’s laptop, cellphones, and iPod.

“This was an unusually heavy action for New Zealand police to take against someone in the media,” Hager told The Intercept. “Occasionally police use a warrant to go after a particular piece of evidence held by a media person or organization. But hours of sifting through someone’s files and seizing piles of their materials does not normally occur. It has a strong smell of politics about it.”

Hager, New Zealand’s most well known independent reporter, emphasized the potential damage the raid could have on work that is wholly unrelated to Dirty Politics: “It is disruptive to anyone’s work to suddenly not have their computers and especially an investigative journalist’s work. There is now also the legal battle to get my equipment and files back untouched. There is no choice about fighting it. I have to protect this and other sources for life or why should anyone ever trust me again?”

The New Zealand Police did not immediately respond to email request seeking comment. Hager is challenging the legality of the warrant in court, and the property that was seized remains sealed and unavailable to the police for the time being.

Although he is being represented by pro bono counsel, Hager has already incurred legal expenses reaching into the thousands of dollars, and New Zealand’s “loser pays” provision could subject him to a very large monetary judgment if he loses. The Freedom of the Press Foundation campaign to raise money for Hager is intended to help him fight for the return of his property, challenge the legality of the raid, and defend himself against any potential future threats stemming from his work as a journalist. (The Intercept‘s Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras are co-founders of the foundation and, along with Edward Snowden and Intercepttechnology analyst Micah Lee, are also board members; in May, The Intercept‘s parent company First Look Mediadonated $350,000 to the foundation.)

Press freedoms are under increasing assault in the English-speaking world—there have been similar controversies in the other Five Eyes alliance nations of the U.S., the U.K., Australia, and Canada—and the ability of New Zealand police officers to cavalierly raid the home of a reporter who has criticized the government in power threatens to establish a dangerous precedent everywhere reporters operate. A successful campaign on Hager’s behalf would signal that people around the world are willing to defend basic press freedoms and stand against such assaults. Those wishing to do so cancontribute to Hager’s defense fund here.

How to Build Powerful Alliances on Google+ (NEW!)
My latest guest blog is about the nature of relationships we form on Google+...

It was +Chris Brogan who opened my eyes to this type of 'mapping', with allies being very different to tribe members and also 'team' too.
The PYB Academy, for instance, has a collection of allies as 'community leaders': +David Amerland +Ronnie Bincer +Lee Smallwood +Mark Traphagen and +Denis Labelle, and alliances have been formed further afield too. 
And I thanks, as always, +Social Media Examiner and +Cindy King 
for getting me to think about Google+ differently, as they help communicate the benefits of being here.

Greens Beach, Tasmania
Situated 60km north-west of Launceston and at the mouth of the Tamar River, Greens Beach is a relatively undeveloped beachside hamlet. The town has a population of roughly 500, which swells to around 2000 in peak holiday periods.

History
The area was first settled in 1828, however the first white visitor is believed to date back to 1798. He was Samuel Jervis, reportedly marooned by a jealous uncle. Jervis was the son of Lord Jervis whom Jervis Bay NSW is named after as a dedication for service with Lord Nelson in a series of naval battles with the Spanish and the French in the late 1700’s, early 1800’s.

Dear Mr Putin, meet our Wanker.

There's no proof that Russia had anything to do with MH17.

Dumb SEO Questions 106.

Some people say listening to Dumb SEO Questions episodes is more boring than watching paint dry and more painful than scratching fingernails down a blackboard. Somebody else said he uses our clips to put himself to sleep, playing us beside his pillow. :)

In case you want to find out for yourself, here's an audio-only clip of last Thursday's episode 106., also available as a 745MB download.

Exactly.

From the article: "A well-respected former Family Court judge fears there will be more cases of public racism unless politicians are more careful about their comments.
Alastair Nicholson, the former Chief Justice of the Family Court of Australia, says racial differences have been "exaggerated" as a result of recent troubles in the Middle East.
"I think sometimes the weaker people in the community - or more stupid people - react in a very unfortunate way when that happens," he told Fairfax Radio 4BC on Monday."

========================================

I think the Liberal Party whipped up this race hatred to draw attention from their hopelessly failed budget and it worked.

We were taken in but we should have been smarter.

Let's get back to acting like we deserve it...___

How far will they take this?

It's on the agenda for the G20 but will they take action against these multinationals in the same way that they have taken action against the little guys with Project Wickenby.

Google sucks in excess of a $Billion out of Australia annually but pays trivial tax by circumventing our tax laws. It's "legal" but if you or I did that, it would be fraud, right?

I think it would take just one executive being tried and convicted to fix this cancer. They wouldn't have to go to jail. The public shaming would be enough.

From the article: Europe's antitrust regulator will soon provide fuller details on why it suspects Ireland and some other low-tax countries have made special deals with multinationals like Apple and Google that helped the companies avoid billions in taxes from Countries like Australia.___How far will they take this?

How long before we can be proud to call ourselves Australians again?

Must we wait until these heartless bastards are voted out of office?

SEO Warning: There's nothing to see here if you're not interested in the quality of your search results. :)

Maybe it's because it's Friday night but I don't know why the SEO community is not already all over this post like a rash. This is a both a call and a roadmap for Google to fix itself. 

Dan wants Google to "abandon link-based penalties and gain enough confidence in its algorithms to simply ignore links they think are manipulative". 

Maybe they are moving towards that, maybe Penguin has been recognised as a fundamental error of judgement. Maybe not, but today the manipulators are winning and there is no semblance of a level playing field.

The search quality team might be some of the smartest and oldest people in search but they condone collateral damage to innocent websites. For that reason alone I think they should allb... more »

The search quality team might be some of the smartest and oldest people in search but they condone collateral damage to innocent websites. For that reason alone I think they should all be searching for another job. Abandoning link penalties would rectify that wrong  at least.

Last night saw the 2nd lunar eclipse for 2014 over Australia. Mount Gambier in South Australia was one of the few place on the south east part of Australia that enjoyed unobscured skies during the eclipse. It is currently mid-spring and the country side is dotted with golden fields of Canola. (Rapeseed) I took up position in one of the fields and captured the full eclipse as it developed over the next three and a half hours. I first did a 30 second exposure with a wide 14mm lens to capture the foreground, followed by 20 minute interval captures of the moon with a 200mm lens at various exposures and apertures as the moon varied in brightness. Someone then put a composite photo together for me to show the motion flow of the eclipse as it unfolded. The next eclipse visible from Australia will occur on 4 April 2014.___via +Melissa North

Imgur introduces a new filetype: .JIF

It will be pronounced as "Gifv"
____________
It is actually .gifv and only works from the Imgur site as a sort of frontend to MP4 files. We don't get to see enough animated Gifs; there should be more cats.

Life Sucks.

I think the worst part about growing old is being left behind after your friends die. Good men, better than me, it's not right or rational.

I've always admired AJ Kohn. He just posted "I’m a believer in ‘particles’ and magical thinking. (In my spare time I chant ‘I’m going to be okay’ over and over again.) So think of me getting better. And if the time comes when I need the support from a larger group I’ll absolutely reach out."

So now I’m a committed and  permanent believer in ‘particles’ and magical thinking and will hope for the best outcome, every day.

I Have Lymphoma

It’s not 2014 yet but I already know what I learned in 2014. I have Follicular Lymphoma. Here’s my story.
