Before you share this circle please read everything detailed below:This is the newest release of my #topengagers  circle.  This week I wanted to give this circle a SERIOUS overhaul. So I deleted it. Then, I started with the adding back the core G+'ers of this circle (if you don't know who they are start engaging more!!) and I then added in those who shared the circle previously and whose posts were high quality.  I am sure some have slipped through the cracks, so if that is you please do not be offended, but be certain to get in touch with me. This circle is the result of the overhaul.  Add this circle only if you are interested in great content, great engagers and helping make G+ a better, more social place.  To Be Included Next Time1.

Frank Gainsford19,949A shared circle of people involved in online marketing with a focus on SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and related issues of being found in search engines.   Most in this circle are knowledgeable and are willing to help new entrants to the online marketing industry.Many have their own blogs and some run both pages and communities that support online marketing and share expertise on how to interact with your customer base through social media and related marketing efforts.These folks are the ones I rely one to help me out when I have any issues that I can not immediately resolve my self, and many of those within this circle are very active within the HOA (Hangout On Air) sector where they have regular talk shows and interact directly with the public discussing online marketing and related issues that impact on your online visibility and online reputation.This is not an opt in circle and  the only way to get in is to engage with me directly on a post of mine or if I have engaged directly with you and discussed online marketing, SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) or +fufismSome of the folk in this circle discuss the psychological aspects of marketing and related personal interaction and engagement factors, including social networking both online and IRL (IN REAL LIFE) and are not directly involved in SEO  or marketing, but that does not make them any less important within the online marketing industry as these aspects are often over looked and not well managed by most online  marketing professionals.So at the end of the day you will find an awful lot of use for the information flow that comes out of the collective stream of this elite group of active Googlers.2014-02-09 07:10:11122337

Very interesting... Google hopes to one day replace Gmail with Inbox

Three Inbox by Gmail engineers answered questions as part of a Reddit AMA session this week. http://tgcafe.it/1A1zJBF

In response to the question “Do you think Inbox will replace Gmail on the long road?,” lead designer Jason Cornwell gave the following answer:

In the short term, no. In the very long term, we hope so. Inbox is something new — that’s why we’re launching it as a separate product.

We care deeply about Gmail and Gmail users, but in the long run as we add more features to Inbox and respond to user feedback we hope that everyone will want to use Inbox instead of Gmail.

Ultimately, our users will decide.

In another answer, Cornwell explains why Google couldn’t simply add Inbox features into Gmail:

 +Chris Messina fucks up again

+Chris Messina penned a takedown of Google+ on Hacker News, and the piece was re-posted on Medium ("Thoughts on Google+: I fucked up. So has Google.")

His post got people talking, because Chris used to work on Google+. (He also invented the hashtag.) 

In a nutshell, Chris's complaints about Google+ are tenfold. I thought I'd summarize his ten points, and offer my opinions and observations about each in a kind of open letter to Chris. 

Dear Chris:  

1.  Can't figure out what Google+ is for

Chris: What is the Internet for? What is paper for? What are TV, radio and books for? More to the point, why do you want someone to tell you what to do? Google+ is a brilliant blank canvas of communication for you to do anything you want with, from private one-on-onecommunic... more »

Optimizing your Google My Business page!
#googleplus   #business   #googlemybusiness   #googleplustips  

Optimizing your Google My Business page!

Having a fully filled out business presence on Google, is a fundamental that every business should take care of. The sections are:

1. Business Name
2. Address
3. Contact info
4. Category
5. Hours
6. Maps & Search photos
7. Introduction

Each of these sections is important to complete, because this is how Google knows about your business and can then show it to potential customers for you.

People want local, contextualized search results!

Taking a look at pay per click advertising:

“4 in 5 consumers want ads customized to their city, zip code or immediate surroundings.”

Having a fully filled out Google My Business page, means you are contextualized for customers in exactly the way they want.

The power of Social Media Optimization (SMO)

Taking this to the next level, it's important to understand that your posts will display in Google search results for those who follow your business on G+. This is powerful, and gives your company massive opportunity to reach new people.

Growing your Google+ following!

With the power of SMO, the importance of growing a targeted following on Google+ couldn't be more real. If you'd like to learn more about growing your targeted audience here on Google+, let us know. 

✔ Our NOD3x tool (free for members of Google+) is designed specifically to help you find and connect with a targeted and relevant audience here on Google+. Just ask us how, we're always glad to help :)

Here's the link to our G+ community (http://bit.ly/NOD3xCommunity) if you'd like to learn more.

SEO & Content Marketing Tips: Adaptive Content!
#contentmarketing   #seo   #sem  

Adaptive Content: A Trend to Pay Attention to in 2015

What is adaptive content, and who is recommending we pay attention to it?

Let's start with the who, and that would be +Brian Clark of +Copyblogger so we know it's a trend worth knowing about.

Now the what?

Adaptive content is basically the, "idea of creating once, then publishing everywhere" This has several happy effects:

1. More people see your content

2. People tend to see your content in a way that's more personalized for them

3. It saves you time

Anatomy of a Content Marketer! [Infographic]
#contentmarketing   #infographic   #contentstrategy   #digitalmarketing  

The Anatomy of a Content Marketer

On the surface, content marketing is simple:

1. Create amazing content, that's so powerful people would normally pay for it, and give that content away for free.

2. In doing so, you'll build up an engaged audience of people who are interested in similar topics. 

3. From that engaged audience, customers will emerge naturally as you present them with services aligned with their needs.

In reality

The reality of pulling those 3 steps off is somewhat more complex, and takes a specific skill set. Many of these skills can be learned, and it's helpful to know what they are so you can better yourself in those key areas for content marketing success.

Here are some of the skills

▶ Strategic thinker

▶ Creative thinker

▶ Influential & energetic promoter

▶ Innovative

▶ Analytical thinker

▶ Collaborator

▶ Witty and humorous

▶ Street smarts

▶ Skillful writer

Check out the infographic for more details!

The Evolution of SEO [1994 - 2014]! (Infographic)

The Evolution of SEO [1994 - 2014] - #infographic

The search industry, and SEO as a whole, has come a long way from the days of link bait tactics and keyword stuffing, developing at an unparalleled rate. While old school SEO focused solely on keywords and targeted search engines, not users, modern search engine optimization has become much more sophisticated and integrated.

New school SEO recognizes the importance of quality over quantity, especially in term of links. It works in conjunction with other channels, focuses on long tail keywords and conversation phrases, and focuses on the user experience. Content is targeted towards a specific audience, with the goal of user engagement.

Take a look at +MediaVision’s “Evolution of SEO” infographic, charting the significant industry developments over the past decade. From Google's algorithm updates to increasingly sophisticated search engine capabilities, the industry continues to evolve  - providing users with the most accurate search results possible while also ensuring information visibility in the ever-growing clutter of online content.

Template: How to Optimize Your LinkedIn Profile for Social Selling #infographic  by +HubSpot 

Want to master the art of #socialselling on LinkedIn?

"To be successful in social selling, your LinkedIn profile should not be about you and your achievements. It should be about your buyer’s achievements and how you enabled them.

Take a peek at this infographic and learn how to optimize your LinkedIn page/profile for prospects, not recruiters."

2 key takeaways:

Don’t just write your title, answer at least two questions: Like, who do you help and how do you help them? Craft your headline to be a mini value proposition, packed with verbs and other active language.

Build your network with an eye to quantity and quality: Send customized invitations to anyone you've interacted with, either in person or online. It's okay to request someone you've never met, but make sure to personalize the invitation with a reason you'd like to connect that's relevant to them.

Trove of great SEO and Google Search related info in Google Webmaster Central Office-hours HOA's!
#seo   #googlesearch   #hoa   #webmasters  

Caught scratching my head in Google Webmaster Office-hours

Someone had a good sense of humor here. LOL. Learned lots of great things as usual in Friday's meeting. If you really want to know what's going on with Google Search these days, I promise there's a trove of information in these weekly Google Webmaster Central Office-hours HOA's. That's why I've made it my highest priority meeting to attend & seldom miss one.

Here's the time stamps from this week's meeting:


0:27 rel=canonical questions, time to update & when its ignored.

5:30 Why did Google shorten my title on mobile, so they're different then desktop search.

6:40 Why does https:// , http:// & www show different results in WMT & how should this be setup right?

10:05 Why will a site not even rank for its own domain name? Google probably doesn't trust the site, or maybe it has a very generic domain name.

11:35 Does changing URL structure from category to flat matter for SEO? Common problems with URL rewriting.

15:42 Is there an issue if the rel=canonical is not actually accessible through a website link on the site itself, but is just in the tag? How Google handles those mixed signals.

19:50 Is the breadcrumb structured data a signal that helps Google understand the site better?

20:20 What's the algorithmic aspect of Penguin & how easy is it for a spam bot to negative SEO?

24:25 Why doesn't Google include algorithm penalty information in WMT?

27:50 Which ranking factors are most important for Google SEO?

31:14 I ask John for an exact keyword density number. LOL.

31:40 I ask John some questions regarding the affect of using different eCommerce platforms on Google ranking, especially in relation to platforms that provide little diversity & uniqueness? Google is not specifically looking at the platform & theme differences. However, the affects we're seeing on SEO may well be secondary, in that users may have associated certain platforms, styles, or themes, with common spammy, or low quality sites.

39:05 Are user comments considered good content? How to avoid bad ranking signals from pages with little content & lots of comments.

44:35 What's the best strategy for a startup site in an industry where there are already lots of high quality, high ranking sites?

45:34 Are links link automatically generated by our company's app considered spammy? 

49:05 Why is Penguin still rolling out?

49:30 Should a new site focus on creating many pages, or a small number of quality pages?

50:10 How will the use of tabs affect site & WMT, I'm using tabs because of mobile useability?

51:44 How long does it take to recover from an algorithmic penalty?

54:00 How does Google use social signals for ranking?

56:40 Authorship questions: Does Google still assign value to an authors identity? I then ask whether we're any closer to seeing if Google Schema data could be used for an authorship.

59:20 Is there a WMT option to refer an m. domain to a normal domain?

1:01:00 We're a big hosting company with sub-domains not related to our site, how can we tell Google to ignore those sub-domains?

1:03:00 Should header links be nofollow? I wouldn't worry about that, they definitely don't pass PageRank.

1:03:28 Why is Google displaying different information in for different countries?

1:05:20 What is a safe quantity of comments to have on our sites, to avoid quality penalties?

Google Inbox Insights - Imminent Gmail Replacement? - "...We hope that everyone will want to use Inbox instead of Gmail."
#inbox   #google   #gmail  

Very interesting... Google hopes to one day replace Gmail with Inbox

Three Inbox by Gmail engineers answered questions as part of a Reddit AMA session this week. http://tgcafe.it/1A1zJBF

In response to the question “Do you think Inbox will replace Gmail on the long road?,” lead designer Jason Cornwell gave the following answer:

In the short term, no. In the very long term, we hope so. Inbox is something new — that’s why we’re launching it as a separate product.

We care deeply about Gmail and Gmail users, but in the long run as we add more features to Inbox and respond to user feedback we hope that everyone will want to use Inbox instead of Gmail.

Ultimately, our users will decide.

In another answer, Cornwell explains why Google couldn’t simply add Inbox features into Gmail:

The way people use email has changed a huge amount since we launched Gmail. 

With Inbox, we took a step back and did a lot of research into how most people are using email today.

What we found was that email works as a todo list for many people, that phone usage is starting to eclipse desktop usage, and that many people have negative feelings towards email because it feels like so much work.

We built Inbox as a separate product because we didn’t feel like we could solve those problems by just adding more features on to Gmail.

We needed to start from scratch to build a tool that really helps you stay on top of your life.

Considered future features:

♨  cross-browser support
♨  the option to change the mobile app’s notification sound 
♨  being able to download all attachments might also be coming

Features being worked on right now:

♨  the Undo Send feature
♨  the ability to customize Snooze times
♨  a unified inbox option to handle multiple email addresses
♨  adding signatures
♨  building out Calendar integration further
♨  adding Drive integration
♨  Inbox by Gmail is also coming to Google Apps users

Social Media and Business Customer Service! [Infographic]
#socialmedia   #infographic   #business   #customerservice  

The Importance of Being Social - #infographic

Social media is still a young platform when it comes to customer service. Both customers and companies are in the “figuring out” stage, where both parties are trying to understand how best to communicate with each other.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise that social media platforms have their own “rules of conduct” and “language”. Learning social media etiquette is an extremely important aspect of customer service on platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Equally as important is learning how to best manage your communications over various social media platforms.

With the right mixture of tools and a willingness to keep a tab on all conversations with customers, you can ensure that maneuvering your way around various social media channels and communicating with customers is as effective and efficient as possible.

Should you be having trouble with customer service through social media, then read on and take a look at this infographic by +Virtual VIP. In it, you'll find all sorts of information, from the increasing relevance of social media platforms with regards to customer service to the sorts of tools you can use to manage your social media channels. Plus, a few case studies on how to (and how not to) use social media to your advantage.

YouTube and Facebook Neck and Neck!

Social Media Rankings

The latest rankings are here: http://wojdylosocialmedia.com/social-media-rankings-2/

It looks as if YouTube and Facebook are now neck and neck when it comes to Twitter mentions with their respective dot coms. Interestingly, ask.fm and tumblr seem to be growing the most. It may be a one week anomaly but I am impressed with the amount of tweets mentioning these smaller social networks.

About +NOD3x ~ Where the tool is now and where it's heading!
h/t +John Dietrich 
#NOD3x #socialtools #socialmedia  

What is NOD3x and Why was it developed?

Four  years ago [Aug 2010] nod3x.com  was in it's infancy and it wasn't publicly available to use then. I basically developed it to help me answer our client's increasing volume of questions relating to online social media discussions.

Then, during the London riots of 2011, I wanted to see if it was possible to predict which direction the rioters were heading based on people Tweeting about what was happening in their location.

We stored and processed the tweets, plotting the locations of those people posting a map in real-time and were able to determine the different directions that the rioters were heading.

Over the period of 8 days we processed just under 3 million Tweets.

We now process 2 million tweets daily...

After this, my mind went a bit crazy pondering on all the what ifs...:

• Do people ask different questions around a topic across different social platforms?

• Do men and women have different topical points of view, across different platforms?

• Does the same person write posts relating to specific topics differently from one social platform to another?

• Is it possible to track trends based upon what people discuss online as opposed to just keyword search behaviour?

• Is there a correlation between online search and social behaviour?

• Can we monitor the impact that media has on everyday people across social media, and vice versa?

• Is it possible to track sentiment relating to public opinions when government’s change or introduce new legislation?

The short answer to the above is - YES!

The task was and continues to be a challenging one - and we’re not finished yet...

Over the course of the last three years we've gone through three revisions visibly and 100's algorithmically. We now have proprietary algorithms in place that not only collects data and processes it but analyses it in real-time 20 times faster producing the following insights (amongst others):

• Influencer analysis
• Opinion analysis
• Location analysis
• Language detection
• Gender detection
• Which network has the most volume of related posts
• Best time of day to post
• Best day of the week to post
• Popular hashtags

These results are presented as a real-time infographic. Why did I call it a real-time infographic? Well, for me (as pretty as they are to look at), once you've collated the data to be designed as an infographic - it's all ready out of date! (Let alone when the infographic is ready to be published!)

Homophiliy Tech ~ "birds of a feather do flock together"  and they also attract others to the flock...

The NOD3x Dashboard displays all of the information that you'd want/expect to find within an infographic, what I've coined as  _swish_ of SNA and Viral: Who, What, Where, When, Why and How (+David Amerland call's them 4Vs of Semantic Search in his book http://davidamerland.com/google-semantic-search.html - must read book if you haven't already...)

The future of NOD3x
Over the course of the next month, we're unveiling some new tech, processes and functionality that we hope you'll approve of.

This new 'stuff' implements what we've codenamed swish and looks at the behavioural correlations between social and search... 

Right now, our focus is on developing a unified suite of #SNA  tools that come together as a complete Social Media Research, Analysis and Marketing application.

Thanks to everyone for their continued support of our little app - without your feedback and critiques NOD3x wouldn't be where it is now...

Haters gonna hate on Google+, but this bold retort by +Mike Elgan is a great summary of why G+ is the best social network ~ Bazinga!
#googleplus   #socialmedia   #socialnetworks  

 +Chris Messina fucks up again

+Chris Messina penned a takedown of Google+ on Hacker News, and the piece was re-posted on Medium ("Thoughts on Google+: I fucked up. So has Google.")

His post got people talking, because Chris used to work on Google+. (He also invented the hashtag.) 

In a nutshell, Chris's complaints about Google+ are tenfold. I thought I'd summarize his ten points, and offer my opinions and observations about each in a kind of open letter to Chris. 

Dear Chris:  

1.  Can't figure out what Google+ is for

Chris: What is the Internet for? What is paper for? What are TV, radio and books for? More to the point, why do you want someone to tell you what to do? Google+ is a brilliant blank canvas of communication for you to do anything you want with, from private one-on-one communication to blogging to novel writing to photo gallery publishing. And icing on the cake: The Google+ community is the best ever assembled online anywhere. 

2. Can't tell if Google is "worried" about Facebook, Snapchat, or Pinterest

Yes, but you can tell that Twitter is "worried" about Facebook. That's why they're ruining it. In an existential panic, Twitter is slowly turning itself into Facebook, with the intrusive ads, algorithmic filtering, insertion of content nobody asked for and all the rest. You can tell Facebook is "worried" about Snapchat. That's why they now shamelessly force you to install and use a separate Messaging app on mobile. Google doesn't have ads, and isn't "worried" about other social networks (being subsidised, essentially, by the rest of Google). That lack of "worry" is one of the reasons why Google isn't actively wrecking Google+. 

3. Google+ doesn't aggressively "control" your digital identity 

The skimmers who got a "gist" of your post and moved on, didn't seem to register that your perspective is mostly an industry-interested one, not a user-interested one. Long story short: Who cares if Google is "controlling" my identity? 

4. Google+ is "Facebook lite," something the world doesn't need

This is your biggest error in understanding. Google+ isn't "Facebook Lite." It's the opposite of Facebook. It's the cure for the Facebook disease. Yes: Facebook has a monopoly on everybody. But the site and service itself is shit. They ruin your pictures posted on your profile pic. They ruin your videos. Facebook is confusing to use. They lie to you in multiple ways. The interface is fugly, cluttered and confusing. They aggressively censor about 90 percent of the content from your newsfeed (by Zuckerberg's own admission). YOU CAN'T EVEN SEARCH THE CONTENT OF POSTS!! I could go on and on with everything rotten about Facebook, problems completely absent on Google+. 

5. Google+ should have improved social networking by 10x, but didn't

Yes, they did. : ) 

6. It doesn't sufficiently "motivate people to store more information with Google"

Again, this is an industry wish-list item. As a user, I don't care if I'm being motivated to store more information. Having said that, I literally store 100% of my information on Google (email, Drive, docs, Contacts, photos on G+). 

7. "Google+ is confused and adrift at sea"

The user experience is the opposite. It's un-confused, clear, reliable, fast, fun and free. 

8. Google+ isn't evolving, changing and getting new features fast enough 

That's like saying Mozart's opera has "too many notes." Who wants new features for the sake of new features? We all have things we'd like G+ to add. But mostly Google is doing far better than other social sites at avoiding bad new features, which is far more important. Facebook rapidly adds features, which almost always annoy users or flop completely. All social sites gain features at different rates. Twitter is just now adding comprehensive search, for example, which Facebook isn't even talking about.

9. Doesn't know what Google+ is better for than Facebook

It couldn't be more obvious, but Google+ is better than Facebook at literally everything. There's not a single thing featurewise that I can think of that's better on Facebook than it is on Google+. (Facebook has everybody, but that's not a feature. It's a catastrophic accident of history.) 

10. Unlike Pinterest, which "helps you express your aspirational self," Google "pigeonholes you into what you already are"

This makes zero sense. Google doesn't pigeonhole you in any conceivable way. There are no limits on content, media or addressing. The real names policy is gone. You can literally be and do anything you want on Google+. 

Google+ is by far the best site online to communicate privately. It doesn't get hacked. It almost never goes down. 

And Google+ is by far the best site to communicate publicly. Even without cultivating a community, a public Google+ post is a page on the Internet, but with the possibility of radical viral sharing. 

Guess what: I'll get more eyeballs and comments on this post than you did with your post on Hacker News and Medium combined -- neither of those sites, by the way, did you single out for irrelevance. And I didn't even invent the hashtag. All I did was do my post on Google+. 

In fact, Chris, your own post on Google+ linking to your story got far more comments than both your Hacker News and Medium posts combined: 

https://plus.google.com/+ChrisMessina/posts/Q4CoWABqLCH

Say what you want about Google+, Chris Messina. But G+ is just better -- far better -- than anything else out there, and still by far the best place in the world to share one's interests and ideas and spark conversations with smart, passionate people.

I thank you for helping to make Google+ possible. But you're wrong about Google+.
