SEO Training Dojo5,996This 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 19:00:0037G+

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 22:30:0022G+

Ray Hiltz23,924How 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 Engine3,413In 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 21:00:0067G+

ISOOSI Research Engine3,413Special 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 20:00:00105G+

Jason T. Wiser15,852Storytelling 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 19:00:00245G+

Jess + Scott + You264Last 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 shervington597,222Who 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.

ISOOSI Research Engine3,413+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. And I for one share that experience and couldn't agree more.All businesses can learn from this hangout... and we'll start really with the basics too. We know we have many small businesses that use ISOOSI and list their businesses in our search directory that currently have zero presence on Google+  So, some of what we talk about may be already known to those that are immersed in it on a daily basis.... but through this hangout we hope to join Mark in expressing our belief in the platform and communicate the benefits it can bring to you - from a personal AND business perspective.+Carlos Fernandes President, ISOOSIGhost Town or Land of Opportunity - Google+2014-02-11 21:00:0096G+

Mark TraphagenJoin +Christine & Mia and our January guest host +Craig Fifield as we welcome our special guest, +Mark Traphagen - if you've ever been curious about his backstory.. then this is the show for you!Wednesday, January 29nd11:30am PST/12:30pm MST/1:30pm CST/2:30pm ESTMore about our guest +Mark Traphagen: Mark is Senior Director of Online Marketing for Stone Temple Consulting, a digital marketing agency located in the Boston area. 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. CT Social emphasizes a personalized approach, tailored to the needs of each individual or business we serve, and continuously aims for high standards of innovation and social integration in all projects. http://www.ct-social.com+Holiday Inn Washington DC-Central/Wh#15MinutesOnAir with Christine & Mia featuring Mark Traphagen & Guest Host Craig Fifield2014-01-29 20:30:00189G+

Ronnie Bincer84,461Google Plus profiles, pages and communities all have PageRank! What's that mean to you and why you should care are the main topics for discussion here. Authorship, PageRank, Algorithms; all SEO stuff you should know more about.Join +Mark Traphagen +Joshua Berg & +Ronnie Bincer as they break this stuff down into manageable concepts and tactics.This HOA Discussion will attempt to de-mystify some of this if you are new to it, and help you know the facts if you are familiar with these terms.

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 14:37:331779413CC G+

Important Things to Know About Private Messages on Google+

Private Messages are CC: NOT BCC:!
If you share a private message to more than one person on Google+ you should be aware that the list of everyone included in the message can be seen by anyone else included, even if you don't +mention everyone in the message body.

To see the entire list of accounts with which the message was shared, a recipient just has to click on the "Shared Privately" link at the top of the post to see icons of all the post recipients. Hover over each one to see the profile name.

That means you should think of all Google+ private messages as CC: not BCC:!

Mentioning Someone Breaks the Privacy
If you +mention someone in a private message who was not in the original recipient list, they will get a notification and the message becomes visible to them, as with... more »

Rich Snippets in Search: A History and Where They Are Going Next

+AJ Kohn has published a masterful, comprehensive overview of rich snippets in Google search. Read it at >> http://stonet.co/1rYXS7M

Rich Snippets are visual add-ons to the regular organic search results that in some way enhance those results. Authorship photos, review stars, and video thumbnails are all examples of the great variety of rich snippets Google has tried out in its results.

The Faded Glory of Rich Snippets
But has that grand experiment, one AJ notes Google entered kicking and screaming, now run its course? It is beginning to appear that the results are in, and Google has decided that rich snippets have perhaps been overserved, and like a barroom drunk were drawing too much attention to themselves.

Rich Snippets in Search: A History and Where They Are Going Next

+AJ Kohn has published a masterful, comprehensive overview of rich snippets in Google search. Read it at >> http://stonet.co/1rYXS7M

Rich Snippets are visual add-ons to the regular organic search results that in some way enhance those results. Authorship photos, review stars, and video thumbnails are all examples of the great variety of rich snippets Google has tried out in its results.

The Faded Glory of Rich Snippets
But has that grand experiment, one AJ notes Google entered kicking and screaming, now run its course? It is beginning to appear that the results are in, and Google has decided that rich snippets have perhaps been overserved, and like a barroom drunk were drawing too much attention to themselves. 

In his article, AJ discusses the maturing of Google's rich snippet algorithm, and why he thinks it has increasingly incorporated site quality filters, perhaps gained at least in part from Google's Panda updates. This (along with UX concerns, very likely) has led to an overall reduction in the amount of rich snippets now being shown.

Authorship As an Example
As I pointed out in my January article http://stonet.co/AuthorshipPurge, Authorship results were a prime example of this. Starting in December of 2013 Google not only began reducing the amount of Authorship rich snippets shown overall, but also instituted what I called two "classes" of Authorship. First class authors still got an author photo for most of their authorship-qualified results, while second class got only a byline.

Of course now, since the end of June, author photos have been removed altogether from non-personalized search. 

Finally, AJ posits that the Knowledge Graph may be replacing much of what rich snippets once did.

Please read his article for a fascinating deep dive into the mind of Google and how search results evolve over time.

Knowledge Graph: Not Quite Ready for Prime Time?

Taking the Ice Bucket Challenge: You'll Just Do It, Right?

I'm still not sure whether or not I agree with everything in +martin shervington's essay yet...but that doesn't matter. 

Whether or not you agree, Martin has done us a tremendous service: getting us to think about why we do something.. Viral memes spread via social media are one of the most powerful cultural phenomena ever. 

It might be good to at least reflect on why you participate in such memes, and what your participation really says.

#plusonly   #alsicebucketchallenge   #alschallenge  

Why I won’t be taking the Ice Bucket challenge.
Has anyone asked you to throw ice over your head yet or pay a fine of $100?

One very friendly, kind, caring member of the Plus Your Business community member challenged me and, well, I refused. And I really like and respect the person who challenged me.

Before I get started, I know these will be the responses...

“Well, you are no fun.”

"Spoilsport."

“But it is for a good cause. Don’t you believe in giving to charities?”

“You do silly things on Google+ they involve lots of people doing campaigns…”

Sure, I take on-board all of that but something in me would not allow me to do it.

Actually, I was pulling up outside the garage when I felt a deep feeling that doing this seemingly simple act was going to be a ‘bad’ move. All I heard was someone screaming ‘noooooo’. You know, like that scene in ‘The Man with Two Brain’s’ when Steve Martin character (Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr) asks permission from his departed wife to marry again. Not seen it? Shame on you. It is awesome. 1983 at its best.

The Man With Two Brains -- just give me a sign

Needless to say, he ignored ‘the sign’.

And I even was thinking of challenging one of the Geek Beat team (which one was undecided), but alas, no.

The easiest thing for me to have done was to say yes, to pass the parcel to the next person. To allow them to be the one who has to make a choice.

“But Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Bill Gate, Mark Zuckerberg have done it…”

I don’t care who has done it. Increasing the social proof around something that I feel deeply is a bad move to do is not going to make me do it.

I’ve sensed in my life, time and time again, the tension between social expectations and my personal freedom of choice, and as a kid you didn’t want to be seen as a ‘spoil sport’, so you just did it.

And, here is what I think it going on…

The challenge is genius, but faulty:

This challenge is spreading like wild fire. Why? Because we have:

a) a very worthwhile cause (my father died of Motor Neuron Disease, so I’ve seen first hand the suffering such diseases like ALS bring)

b) a simple, replication methodology for getting involved, i.e. entry price of the ticket is simply the ice bucket

c) a mode of communication, i.e. social (inc. video), which enables ease of information transfer

d) influential people getting involved, and through this endorsement others feel they should follow suit

This really is a monster meme. Clever, but nonetheless faulty in my view.

The Outer Game:

The mechanism of a highly socialized campaign, with ‘all the big names’ doing it, is very appealing. But it is build on a few key principles:

The game forces people to buy into the conditions of the game or be shown to be non-compliant to a larger audience. In other words, it is a bind, a social trap. And as I say, a very clever one.

So let’s look at the three main responses available in this situation:

1. They accept the challenge to tip the ice bucket

2. They refuse the challenge but still ‘play the game’ and pay the fine

3. They refuse to play the game, and therefore fail to be a 'team player' or are a spoil sport in a game to which they never chose to party.

The last one may well be met with a response that they will, however, give to charity (as did Obama). This is a concessionary move to exit the relational loop in a way then allows both parties not to have lost.
No real surprise Obama refused to be put in a bind. 

I am sure this could be far more eloquently explored: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_theory

There is also an inner game for each player…

The Inner Game of 'Stick or Twist'

I’m sure you know the card game BlackJack (or a version called Pontoon as we used to say as kids).

Imagine you have 16, that is 5 short of getting 21. Do you twist? Do you take the gamble? Possibly.

What about when you have 19 or 20?

You stick right?

Why? Because you know the odds in that game.

In a much broader and more complex social game you cannot know the odds - relationships are far more complex. So when someone challenges someone to do something in a public space, they are throwing down the gauntlet there are several ways it can go.

Let’s look at the ice bucket challenge specifically:

The person challenges someone in perceived authority or a subordinate (both of which I am sure is happening in corporates around the world right now) and in essence that person takes a gamble.

At this point their dopamine levels will kick in and they get a high. “Will they DO IT?”

Then they wait for the response. And that person either buys into the game, or not.

But either way, you wait to see if you influenced them to take the challenge.

The gamble people take is a very similar internal experience as e.g. “will they email me back?” or if I plus mention them in this Google+ post, will then arrive on my thread, or as in my ‘Why Dave? Why didn’t you click the button?” video, will they +1 my hilarious/insightful/entertaining comment.

Why? Why didn't you click the button Dave?

i.e. it is a gamble against yourself, all the time. You decide on the wave you take, and the ones you leave.

But here is the thing if you reject the games, the approaches, the requests: you are not responsible for someone else’s dopamine. They take a gamble, and you just have to do your best in your response.

It is similar as to when people may ask you to share their content, putting you (on occasions) in an awkward position. If you stand up and say 'no', they may feel bruised by this, but it is they who took the gamble. You cannot be responsible for the response people may have to your actions, e.g. the refusal to accept the bet that someone made against you without your agreement to be party to it. You can still love them, but you don’t have to play their game.

There is a social risk that needs to be insured against though, so people's response could well be to try to make the person who refuses to play 'look bad', to name and shame. Or simply, this is inherent with the rejection of the game itself - you are excluded from that tribe, but is a tribe you never choice to join.

The meme will morph. They usually do.

There is another response which is this: they change the rules of the game, and in fact because the foundations of this game were faulty i.e. ice or money, it has morphed towards ‘ice+$10’ or $100.

Already we seen the meme move from the original ‘Ice bucket or fine’ to ‘Icebucket and $10, to fine’ to Charlie Sheen’s “forget the ice, I just challenge you to donate $10,000’, which is great.

Charlie Sheen -- Ice Bucket Challenge with a BIG Twist

Well done Mr Sheen.

In a wider scheme, I do wonder about the effect of adults, with great awareness, endorsing the ice bucket action.

Money may well be raised for a cause, but I bet you this meme has hit many a school playground and is now used as a form of bullying.

Why do I think this? I’ve run many campaigns and there is always the risk of it ‘going wrong’ i.e. simply not being in your control, and this can include it being taken in a negative or abusive direction.

What is all fun and games on minute can become abusive the next, especially when it doesn’t have a very tight time constraint when the game organizing can call an end.

As such, yes, I decided not to play.

Hold on a minute, I know I’ve heard all this somewhere before. It was 1983…

That scene from War Games

Sometimes the winning move it not to play.

Seth Godin, tribes and asking permission:

For those looking more at a Google+ angle on all this, then this bit is for you...

I have enormous respect for Seth Godin and his influence upon me is daily. Between him Jay Baer, Chris Brogan and Mike Stelzner I am beating my own path in the world, and seeing who want to join the movement.

One time I saw Mike refuse to do something on stage in front of 1800 people at a conference (I think it was a dance upon the request of a speaker). At the time, I 'noted it'. And now I know why. He chose not to be forced into someone elses game.

But let me be 100% transparent once more about what I do...

Myself and the team Google+ to build the communities; along the way I build my personal brand, and to connect with likeminded people with whom I can collaborate.

As you may have noticed, I give you free content, a lot of it. In return I do expect something though. I expect you to ‘tell your friends’, or in G+ speak, +1/comment/share, and this is what naturally happens when you like something. This will signal to Google’s algorithm that this content is ‘WOW’ and should surface in Google Search. This is then found by people interested in those topics, and who visit the websites, and maybe even sign up and buy something from myself and the community members involved.

To help this process I create content that many people would sell, and then give it away for free to people. Very often I will create a circle of people who are interested in previewing the content, which brings them together and gives them a bonus in return for me being allowed to notify them when the big post goes live. I kind of a bribe, yes.

The method I often us is to ask people “Who would like to join a circle for content around e.g. Google+ Marketing” i.e. they opt in.

In other words, I ask your permission would you like to join in. Or, alternatively, you follow me on Google+ by adding me into circles and you choose whether or not to engage on my content.

The ice bucket challenge approach is contrary to the one I tend to take.

I believe the permission marketing approach is so much more healthy than a meme which could easily turn into a mechanism for dominance, creating a social trap for those who are unable to transcend the emotional discomfort and reject the game outright.

And sure, they have raised $15 million+, but it has been raised this approach may not benefit the charity long term. As the L.A.Times says, “The concern of philanthropy experts is that high-profile fundraising campaigns like this end up cannibalizing other donations” and continues “You want to contribute to the fight against ALS, great. But if you're doing it just because you saw or heard about Bill Gates, Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake or Ethel Kennedy dumping ice water on their head, maybe you should give a bit more thought to where you donate your money.”

Conclusion:

The memes we create, join, and perpetuate are the ones which will determine the cultural norms of the future i.e. what is ‘ok’ and what is not ‘ok’, which is why I’ve chose not to put people over a barrel, well, under an icy cold bucket.

I also owe a huge thank you to the person who challenged me, you know who you are; you have enabled me to say express something that would not have otherwise been said. It is much appreciated, truly.

My final words are this: Donate to charity. A charity to which you relate.

I’ve just donated here: http://www.mndassociation.org/

Then invent your own games. Find those who want to play of their own free will.
And let everyone leave when they want, hopefully with a smile on their face.

Private Messaging on Google+: Some Things You May Not Know

I shared these tips yesterday in the official Google+ Help community.

Important Things to Know About Private Messages on Google+

Private Messages are CC: NOT BCC:!
If you share a private message to more than one person on Google+ you should be aware that the list of everyone included in the message can be seen by anyone else included, even if you don't +mention everyone in the message body.

To see the entire list of accounts with which the message was shared, a recipient just has to click on the "Shared Privately" link at the top of the post to see icons of all the post recipients. Hover over each one to see the profile name.

That means you should think of all Google+ private messages as CC: not BCC:!

Mentioning Someone Breaks the Privacy
If you +mention someone in a private message who was not in the original recipient list, they will get a notification and the message becomes visible to them, as with any other Google+ post.

So use +mentioning with caution in a G+ PM, and make sure you have the consent of everyone else in the message before you bring someone else in! (HT to +Rupert Wood who reminded me about this in the comments.)

UPDATE: Great further tip shared by +John R. Ellis: If you want to prevent anyone from +mentioning someone else into your private message, select "Disable reshares" from the dropdown menu at upper right after publishing the post.

How to Create a Private Message
Just in case you didn't know you could send PMs here, here's how:

1. Open a new share box.
2. Delete any circles currently shown in the share box.
3. Either plus mention (type a + and then immediately the name) anyone you want to include OR enter their name in the "Add more people" box.
4. If you use the "add more people" box, remember what I said above: those people can still be seen by other recipients!

Amit Singhal: 10 Biggest Google Search Innovations in Past 10 Years

The chief architect of Google's search engine shares the ten innovations he thinks are most significant as Google Search approaches the tenth anniversary of Google's IPO.

HT +Joshua Berg 

It feels like just yesterday my wife, two kids and I packed all our belongings, sold our house in New Jersey, and made the long trip to California. It was almost 14 years ago, and I was on my way to join Google’s Search team. 

One of the more memorable moments during the years that followed was the company’s IPO, where Larry and Sergey introduced their vision to the world. I can’t believe that was 10 years ago tomorrow. Their founders’ letter [http://goo.gl/t7Ylc7] highlighted Google’s long-term focus:  

“Our business environment changes rapidly and needs long term investment. We will not hesitate to place major bets on promising new opportunities.”

Since 2004, Google has of course made a range of big bets: YouTube, Android, Chrome, Google Maps….and recently, many of the amazing long-term projects Google[x] is pursuing.

But the heart of Google is still search. And in the decade since our IPO, Google has made big bets on a range of hugely important areas in search that make today’s Google so much better than the 2004 version (see our homepage from back then below). Larry has described the perfect search engine as understanding exactly what you mean and giving you back exactly what you want. We’ve made a lot of progress on delivering you the right answers, faster. But we know that we have a long way to go -- it’s just the beginning.

I thought it might be fun to share the 10 biggest Google search milestones since 2004 that really stand out in my mind:

1. Autocomplete: We built a way for Google to predict the most likely useful words and phrases as you type, and even load search results instantly—so you can quickly get to that perfect recipe for “silky gingered zucchini soup” (even if you can’t remember the dish’s whole name). Typing out a whole phrase feels archaic.

2. Translations: Google Translate was barely a beta product ten years ago. Today people use it in 80 languages to do over a billion translations a day. Just tell Google to “translate 10 years into German” and see this magic in action.

3. Directions and traffic: Search used to be just about webpages, but our amazing Maps team made it possible to search the real world too. Now you can ask, “How far is it to Santa Cruz?” and with one tap you can open walking, biking, public transit, or driving directions—with the fastest route so you avoid traffic.

4. Universal search: Sometimes the best answer isn’t just text—if you’re asking about JFK’s “Moon Speech,” you probably want to watch John F. Kennedy deliver his famous speech. We’ve made that possible, blending different types of results so you get the most relevant info, no matter the format.

5. Mobile and new screens: No matter what device or platform you may be on, whether it’s a tablet or a smartphone (or even a watch!), you need information and answers. So we’ve adapted Search to all these new devices. This includes redesigning our mobile products to help those who weren’t born with the fastest typing thumbs! 

6. Voice search: Gone are the days of typing queries as clunky keywords—you can now ask questions by voice in the Google Search app. Instead of typing [weather chicago], just say “Ok Google, will I need an umbrella tomorrow?” We’ve invested years of research into speech recognition and natural language understanding, and voice search works in 38 languages today.

7. Actions: With the Google Search app you can quickly text, email or call someone without digging and typing. Just say: “Ok Google, send an email to Jason: do you guys want to go to the beach with us for a picnic this Saturday?” You can even set sophisticated reminders like “Remind me to pick up coffee filters next time I’m at Target,” and Google will buzz your phone when you get to any Target.

8. The Knowledge Graph: The world is made of real things, not just text strings. So we built the Knowledge Graph to show how things are connected—ask “How tall do you have to be to ride the Cyclone?” or “Who’s in the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy?”, and then click to explore across the web. 

9. Info just for you: If you’ve got a flight reservation saved in your Gmail, you can ask the Google Search app, “What gate does my flight leave from?” and get the answer directly. You can also ask about shipments ("Where's my package?") or for appointments (“When do I have yoga?”). All this is private of course, visible just to you. 

10. Answers before you have to ask: If you have the Google Search app on your phone, you'll get automatic help with everyday tasks. Google can automatically show you your plane, bus, and train reservations right when you need them; warnings when traffic is bad to your next appointment; reminders of bills coming due; a best guess at the last spot you parked; and much more.

And all that is just a sample of the work we’ve done since 2004. We made more than 890 improvements to Google Search last year alone, and we’re cranking away at new features and the next generation of big bets all the time. We've come a long way in 10 years -- on Google and so many other general and specialized search apps, it's now so much better than just the 10 blue links of years past. In 2024, the Google of 2014 will seem ancient, and the Google of 2004 prehistoric. ___Amit Singhal: 10 Biggest Google Search Innovations in Past 10 Years

Think bagpipes are boring. Think again. My wife just shared a video from this band that appeared at the closing part for the International Marine Mammal Conservation conference she's attending in Glasgow, Scotland.
The video she reshared is in smartphone vertical mode, which I abhor. So here's a better example of what the Red Hot Chili Pipers do.

Writing Good Headlines

Very important points from +Dustin W. Stout. When you're writing something to be published, it's valuable to spend some time thinking hard about the title. 

Tip: For search engine purposes, you can use the post's title tag to set a different title than the one that appears at the top of your post. This can be useful if you want to make the title readers see more creative, but want search engines to see a title that is better for ranking. Most WordPress SEO plugins allow you to specify a title tag (or "SEO title").

What Makes a Good Headline? [Infographic]

Well there's a lot of things that make a good headline. What it really comes down to is a good headline get's people's attention and provokes them to take action. So this #infographic  from +Sprout Social (courtesy of +HubSpot) will show you the best ways to optimize your headlines for best results:

See the full infographic here: http://dustn.ws/1tgajOv

As with all things though, take these tips and use them wisely. For instance, don't just make everything a list post-- that gets old really fast. And if everything you write is super emotionally charge, your audience will get burnt out and numbed to your hyper-emotional style (unless you're targeting emotionally charged teenagers).

Private Messages on Google+ are CC: NOT BCC:

I shared the tip below with the official Google+ Help community because earlier today I encountered a user who was shocked when I knew who else was on his recipient list even though he thought he had hidden them!

Please reshare if you found this helpful. Thanks!

Important Thing to Know About Private Messages on Google+

If you share a private message to more than one person on Google+ you should be aware that the list of everyone included in the message can be seen by anyone else included, even if you don't +mention everyone in the message body.

To see the entire list of accounts with which the message was shared, a recipient just has to click on the "Shared Privately" link at the top of the post to see icons of all the post recipients. Hover over each one to see the profile name.

That means you should think of all Google+ private messages as CC: not BCC:!

How to Create a Private Message
Just in case you didn't know you could send PMs here, here's how:

1. Open a new share box.
2. Delete any circles currently shown in the share box.
3. Either plus mention (type a + and then immediately the name) anyone you want to include OR enter their name in the "Add more people" box.
4. If you use the "add more people" box, remember what I said above: those people can still be seen by other recipients!

So use +mentioning with caution in a G+ PM, and make sure you have the consent of everyone else in the message before you bring someone else in! (HT to +Rupert Wood who reminded me about this in the comments.)

UPDATE: Great further tip shared by +John R. Ellis: If you want to prevent anyone from +mentioning someone else into your private message, select "Disable reshares" from the dropdown menu at upper right after publishing the post.

Twitter Experiments with Pushing "Friends of Friends" Content

Some users have observed a limited test by Twitter where they sometimes see a tweet from someone they don't follow. 

These tweets are ones that have been favorited by someone whom they do follow. That makes this similar to what Google+ does with +1'ed G+ posts for the past year: they can appear in the streams of people in their extended circles as recommended posts).

Social networks do this for two reasons:

1) It exposes users to other users they don't know but might follow, thus increasing the connections in the network.

2) It exposes users to more (potentially) interesting content, which could cause them to use the network more and stay longer when they do.

Actually, that happens at least once a day...

#plusonly  

Why I Have No Opinion of Unicorns

I never thought I'd write such a title, but some days you just have to expect the unexpected.

I have no opinion on whether Unicorns do or don't exist.  Honestly.  I actually had never even formed an opinion about my opinion on the topic until someone asked.

They apparently didn't like my answer: "I have no opinion on that."

They just couldn't believe I would have no opinion on the existence or non-existence of Unicorns.  They believed I surely must be being a bit dishonest to say that.   But... I really don't.

Why would I?  No one has ever tried to convert me to Unicornism or suggested my lack of a firm belief either way would condemn me to some torturous afterlife.  No one is lobbying for Unicorn Prayer in School.  I doubt even the Supreme Court of the United States would side with employers discriminating about healthcare coverage on the basis of what the Unicorns think is morally appropriate.  I can safely say, I have not spent a second of my life contemplating the reality or non-reality of Unicorns.  I'm not per se agnostic about it... it just isn't something I feel worth having an opinion on.

Perhaps what they wanted to hear was for me to acknowledge that Unicorns are certainly not a known entity in our world.  You can't go see one at a zoo, for example.  Then again, you can't go see a Great White Shark at a zoo.  Could there be some unknown one-horned horse running around out there undiscovered?  Unlikely but not impossible.  Could there have ever been a one-horned horse or horse-like creature, possibly extinct now or known under a different name (e.g. Rhinoceros) which was the basis of the myth?  Possibly.  I can't rule that out, at any rate.  If a real creature formed the basis of the myth, then regardless if it was some other creature being misidentified, unicorns "existed".

And honestly, aren't I putting way more thought into this right now than anyone should?  Why even ask me for an opinion on the existence or non-existence of a creature that seems to have no meaning to my life or the life of anyone I will ever know?

So, no, I don't have an opinion on whether Unicorns exist.  And I don't plan to have one any time soon, unless the adherants of Unicornism get better at political lobbying or start challenging the role of science in explaining the origin and history of life, the universe, and horses.

I'm content, for now at least, to let Unicorns remain plot devices in fantasy films starring Tom Cruise.___Every once in a while +Eli Fennell writes something I wish I'd written.

Bing Search Is Now Conversational

Bing announced they now have conversational search, similar to how to how Google introduced it over a year ago. http://tgcafe.it/1kGR8ww

Not only will it give you the answer directly in the search results, but you can also continue the conversation.  

For instance, you can ask “who is the president of the united states”, we will show you the answer.  

From there you might ask, “who is his wife” or “how tall is he.”  

Bing maintains the context and keeps the conversation moving forward.

Do Links Live on As Ghosts After They Are Removed? Whiteboard Friday

+Rand Fishkin with a fascinating look at some recent testing of a phenomenon long suspected by many SEO professionals: "link echoes" or "link ghosts."

The idea behind link ghosts is that even if a link is removed, under some circumstances Google might continue its "link juice" ranking power for the linked-to site. In the video, Rand presents some new circumstantial evidence that this might exist. 

Of course, we always need to be cautious about such tests. There are always variables we either can't control or don't even know about. As Rand said in a comment on the post:

Part of me wonders whether after the links departed, new links came in (owing to the higher rankings/discoverability), or maybe some of those pages with links were scraped and re-published creating new links that still exist, or if clicks and user/usage data started helping, or if the SERPs were low enough in competition that even the echo of the links was enough to keep them ranking.

It's also wholly possible that there's entire groups of signals we know nothing about that are part of Google's ranking algorithms that are keeping them propped up. Whatever the case - it's a fascinatingly consistent part of how things appear to work in search results, and definitely important for marketers to be aware of.

Can Google Plus Cause Duplicate Content Problems?

Everyone knows public Google+ posts are indexed by Google and may show up in search. So if you post the same content here that is on your site, have you created a potential duplicate content issue?

Duplicate content on the web can be an issue because Google has to decide which copy of the same content should be highest ranked, and that may not be the site to which you wanted to drive traffic.

Find out whether Google+ can cause duplicate content problems at >> http://stonet.co/GPlusDuplicateContent

Watch and see if you don't agree!

This is the pilot episode for a brand new series of HOAs: "Ammonize"

Featuring +Donald Brant and a guest appearance by +Stephanie Sims all joining me, +Ammon Johns for this pilot show.

Ammonize is a new series in which I'll be sharing my unique approach to marketing.  Each week I'll be sharing my insights, processes, approaches and perspectives, from almost 20 years of experience as a leading Internet Marketing Consultant.  The aim is helping you to 'Ammonize' your own projects and business ventures by understanding exactly how I approach various marketing objectives and situations.

What is really  special about the shows is that every other week, the show will be an hour of actual consulting, live on air.

Real-world cases, real solutions, in real time!

Please join me for this pilot show where my willing sacrifice wonderfully generous guest is +Donald Brant allowing me to share with you an hour of consultation on his business and marketing.  Join the show to lend him your own support, views, and insights, as I examine his business and marketing plans, evaluate his market position and align what he wants to achieve with the resources he has available.  The end result ... tune in to see!___A Must Watch New HOA for Online Businesses

Can Google Plus Cause Duplicate Content Problems?

Everyone knows public Google+ posts are indexed by Google and may show up in search. So if you post the same content here that is on your site, have you created a potential duplicate content issue?

Duplicate content on the web can be an issue because Google has to decide which copy of the same content should be highest ranked, and that may not be the site to which you wanted to drive traffic.

How About Community Search?

Hey +CircleCount. At present your Communities page just lists the top communities overall by membership count. It would be useful to be able to search for communities by keyword and have them ranked by member numbers. Even more useful: be able to filter by engagement levels!
