Kristin Drysdale7,049Anyone ready to dish some mad smackdown yet on all this I/O bull-shiznicky? I want to hear it.@107022061436866576067 has been following this, and I know @105475484427213195749 has a few good snarky words to say... If anyone wants to jump on and give their mad verbal review, just let me know in the comments below. Also, indicate a time that's good for you. This is completely impromptu and needs no polish. I'd just like to dish with *YOU*.   We may even have the event-reporter himself joining us... yep, I'm talking about @102572320061138442096.=) I/O Break2015-05-29 02:00:0017  
Ray Hiltz27,141*The Medium is Not the Message* Many of you are familiar with the phrase: _"The medium is the message"_ coined by Canadian media guru *Marshall McLuhan* in the early ‘60’s.  It was a revolutionary idea. At that time, the “media” he was referring to was television - a relatively new guest in our living rooms. He believed that the medium was embedded in the message and therefore we should be the focus of study.  _“A medium affects the society in which it plays a role not only by the content delivered over the medium, but also by the characteristics of the medium itself.”_ _*Are we too attached to our favourite platforms?*_ _*Is Facebook having a similar impact on how we act and communicate?*_ _*Are we paying too much attention and investing too many resources on various social platforms?*_ With the advent of social media, we have been so busy mastering the tools and platforms that we talk more about and seem to CARE more about what’s on our tool belt than we do about what we're trying to fix or create. In the ongoing _"Forbes: 5 Reasons Google+ Died"_ discussion, (http://goo.gl/xX9CCl) @107022061436866576067 sums up his post: with these  wise words: _*“We can like something, even be a fan of it, we can find great personal value in something, but we need to keep our rational, objective evaluation abilities intact. That's especially important if other people look to us for marketing advice.”*_ Those of us who bear the slings and arrows of ridicule over our choice of Google+ as our favourite social platform have developed a siege mentality and all too quickly circle the wagons when attacked. We’re the Glee club dodging “Slushies” in the school hallways.  I admit I’m one of those who has championed Google+ and while I continue to do so, I am much less personally invested in it. I use it for it’s strengths, not just because it’s Google+. Marketers have to be platform agnostic and a client believer. What do you think? Do our personal medium preferences influence our client’s marketing messages? Join the #RayBunch  on Tuesday, April 28th at 12:15pm On Mobile?

I am sure most of us could be more open to new ideas and ways of thinking. One of my (@104641199698156385999 ) favorite experiences had to do with this weeks guest @107022061436866576067. He had been spammed by someone new to Google+ and instead of just ignoring the situation he decided to take a few minutes to help this new Plusser learn what is expected here on #ThePlus . I have since seen Mark do this very thing and have learned from his example. This week as we explore the past present and future of Open-Mindedness we will be enlightened by one of the most peaceful men on the Plus. *Friday, March 20th 2015* *11:42 am MST* (1:42 pm EST, 12:42 pm CST, and 10:42 am PST) This Weeks Guests: This Week's #PlusOneSuperHero      @107022061436866576067  This Week's #PlusOneSideKick      @110619855408549015935  This Week's #CoHostOne  is      @101280116286631896187  This Week's #CoHostTwo  is      @104683923092143784953    Mobile Link: http://goo.gl/m2nUDG Watch on Google+: http://goo.gl/VwSZcZ Watch on YouTube: http://goo.gl/m2nUDG Learn More on http://.GPlus.Training's blog: http://goo.gl/aaNbYG Network Round Table is back for the Season of Values!   Core values are as vital as goals to our success.

Social Media Today144,867*Does Social Business Make Sense?* _Not just for people but for the organizations as well?_ *Social Business is the focus of every business owner and CEO.* As we transition to a world of people, connections and relationships where advertising and traditional marketing do not work like they used to, the trend is to reposition a business to work harder for its employees, better with its customers and for its community. When the traditional model of a business gives us some very strong, clearly defined guidelines, driven by the irrefutable logic of the balance sheet, *does it make much sense to really talk about social business?* Is it a distraction? *And if not, can there be a workable path that can transition a legacy business to a modern, social one?* Discussing some of the key questions will be TEDx speaker and author @105103058358743760661. *A former Microsoft executive and a thought leader in the field of technology, people and organizations,* Gideon will be sharing some of his insights with us. Hosting the discussion will be @115620878851836664537  with @102000982871890720967  and at the controller's helm, making sure that everything runs smoothly will be @100470926227322431614 with @115000108263064481690. *Don't forget to join the conversation!* We want your questions, highlights, and feedback prior to, during, and after the event so make sure to tweet @socialmedia2day using the hashtag #SMTPowerTalk  or leave us comments on the Google+ or YouTube event pages!

RightStart Websites631*Another Small Business Conundrum* Mention Social Media around a group of micro/small businesses and you will often get a lot of groans and rolling eyes.  “One more thing to do”... “I tried that, worthless”... “I just don’t get it…” just to name a few responses.  There will often be that one person who thinks social media is the best thing since sliced bread,  (envy alert) and talks about how great it has been for their business.  Often the reason for that is fairly obvious.  Their business type and personality come into play really quickly.

Mia Voss34,918It's a New Year! Let's jumpstart it with a Weekend Edition of @109324423871490315778 Power Chat.  Check out this amazing lineup of panel guests who will fill us in on what they think is the latest & greatest for 2015: @115620878851836664537 - Author, Speaker, Analyst. _I travel a lot. I surf the web even more. Over the last four years I've spent time in fifteen countries and three continents making airports and hotel rooms more of a constant, for me, than home. I also spend more hours, each day, online than most people would consider to be healthy. The one stability in all this is Google+ where I can be found, time allowing, on most days. It has become my anchor._ _In my posts, interviews and podcasts I add pieces to the puzzle. I explain how each one fits in a bigger picture. How that bigger picture then makes sense. Sensemaking changes everything._ _Before I got here, I used to be a corporate rat who used to be a journalist, before I jumped ship into full-time writing, speaking and blogging._ @115137076899523837053 - One of my favorite teenagers & aspiring DIY host. I rely on Kiragan to help me keep up with the cool kids!   Kiragan is an eighth grader and an aspiring You Tuber.  You can find her watching a season a day of Netflix when she is not playing basketball four days a week.  In the future she hopes to own her own business because she loves people and being her own boss. Her Instagram is the bomb.com and you should follow her!  http://instagram.com/kiragan_07 https://twitter.com/kiragan_07 YouTube: Kiragan Mercer @103158283130494425954: Rachel is pursuing concurrent Master's degrees in urban planning and information science at the University of Michigan, with the aspiration to design human-computer interactions at the urban scale. Specifically, Rachel is interested in designing how people will interact with emerging technologies -- such as drones, autonomous cars, and pervasive computing -- within the city, with an eye towards making sure these technologies promote positive human interactions and greater community engagement. She has previously worked at the Brookings Institution and the World Resources Institute, and holds BAs in English and environmental humanities from Stony Brook University.  @106628164966864339997 - @112784356967153325101 Zack Jones is a college dropout entrepreneur that is shooting to change the way we define housing. When he decided to quit his academic career and his day job to pursue a new path as a business owner, he had no idea where his tiny idea was going to take him. Fast forward three years to now and Zack has brought his idea off the napkin and into the most demanding phase of a new business, the startup. Aside from being obsessed with tiny houses, Zack is passionate about creating learning pathways that are uniquely tailored to each individual persons needs and excited to chat about how starting tiny is a promising first step to something so much larger!

Yifat Cohen77,690*What if....* Google+ is not a social network at all - never intended to be a Facebook killer, nor a Twitter wanna-be and definitely not in a rush to keep up with everything else out there...? *What if....* Google+ is Google's way of analyzing our personal relationships across all their products (because relationships can't be faked) and use that knowledge to fuel services like Google Now, Nest, Home automation and Driveless cars...? *"So what the fuck is Google+ for anyway?"* @102034052532213921839 is an ex-Google employee who helped design the UX of Google+ before he left Google a year ago, and whose name came up again on the Plus stream when he shared his *Thoughts on Google+* asking [quote] "So what the fuck is Google+ for anyway?" and got the community talking. *SO LET'S -TALK- HANGOUT ABOUT IT.* Chris is very disappointed with Google+ because he expects better from Google. But maybe he's expecting the wrong things? @113117251731252114390 rebutted Chris' post and defended Google+ in a Google+ post that was shared 524 time and sparked conversations across the Plus (https://www.gplusgotogal.com/MikeElganRebuttal1)  Chris responded - https://www.gplusgotogal.com/ChrisMessinaRebutal And Mike claimed that Chris lost the argument because he didn't answer the main questions: "What site has 1) a better community; 2) better troll control; 3) better photo tools; 4) better integration with a leading wearables platform; 5) better conversations; 6) better monetization; 7) better search?" (https://www.gplusgotogal.com/MikeElganRebuttal2) Basically, comparing Google+ to Facebook again. (_sigh_) *IS CHRIS USING GOOGLE+ WRONG?* Chris, who was an integral part in the development of Google+ for 3.5 years was told by @107742059751171695340 that he was using Google+ wrong. He should have been talking and listening to Top Contributors (which Jaana is one) who have their ears to the ground: _"Which is the direction it's taking? That depends. Also on us, the users.  Google listens."_ (You should definitely read the comments on Jaana's post, where she and Chris get into an agreement - https://www.gplusgotogal.com/JaanaNyströmGooglePlus) *IS IT ABOUT THE SHARED INTEREST GRAPH?* Perhaps the best insight is that of @105103058358743760661 who read between Chris' lines and brought up the point of Big Data and information networks: [Google+] "should have been 1000% focused on helping people build a rich information network around the things we care most about - our interest graph - and then to use that interest graph to connect us with *new* people who share those interests with us - our "shared interest graph." And if it's about the interest graph, then who's better than @115620878851836664537 to remind us that that takes time: _ It requires building a bunch of things, integrating them and then waiting to see how people will use them and what the data will show you. This means that we have to wait to see some results (many of which will impact search) andGoogle Rebuttal - Chris Messina's Perspective.2014-12-11 19:00:00173

Fearlessly Questioning214*Are you looking far enough ahead?* I don't know about you, but I have a terrible habit of looking into the future and trying to live there.  Once I see where I want my life or the things around it are going I forget everything else and take up permanent residence there.

On Track Tips | Wiser Sites2,241*Ten things Cynthia Sanchez and I will NOT talk about during this week’s interview about Pinterest* http://jtw.bz/PinBlog1 As I was preparing for this week’s program, I was reading article after article about Pinterest for marketing and small business, and it was almost embarrassing how they were saying the same exact thing.  Right up front, here are 10 things we won’t be talking about: 1.) You need to "engage" 2.) Be "authentic" 3.) Build a community around your brand 4.) Visit others’ boards and pin their things; this will get their attention and they’ll pin yours  5.) Use hashtags 6.) Fill out your Pinterest profile 7.) Pin two to three times a day 8.) Use bigger images 9.) Add links to your pins into your G+ posts (G+ and Pinterest play very nicely together) and other profiles 10.) Have fun! Tips are good, no doubt, but this week Cynthia Sanchez and I will not be wasting this half hour just to meme out on “Pin all the things.”  +Cynthia Sanchez started to use Pinterest in 2011 and in 2012 left her job as a full-time radiation oncology nurse to focus on building her “Oh So Pinteresting” business.  Today Cynthia is a leading authority on Pinterest and is commonly found presenting at larger social media conferences and summits.  I will be asking Cynthia to share some of her best small businesses success stories. We’ll get into bootstrapping business owners who are juggling social media and other marketing channels - trying to figure out this whole online space - and seeing real success in their small business. If this sounds Pinteresting to you, we’ll see you there! ====================================================== Start asking questions now AND invite 2 friends!

Joshua Berg36,200On Aug 28th Google announced termination of the Authorship program, via an announcement from *John Mueller.* goo.gl/QgyUSH *[This HOA Special is TODAY, see event for local time.]* To say this came as a shock to many loyal Google authorship fans & Google+ users would be an understatement. Needless to say there are lots of questions being asked about what all this means... Why did this happen? What does it mean for authors, for SEO & ranking? What about Author Rank, or Agent Rank, are they still coming? What's going to replace authorship & what about schema.org & other markup? So on very short notice, I decided to see if we could get the experts together on this, share our thoughts & answer your questions. Amazingly within a few hours & at the end of the week, we'd reworked our schedules & planned this event. Although I'm pretty sure this panel of well known industry thought leaders don't need an introduction, I'd like to say very special thanks to them all for coming. So a warm welcome to @107022061436866576067, @113690073826160821557, @115620878851836664537, @115106448444522478339 & @102572320061138442096. All are welcome to come & bring your questions.

SEO Training Dojo6,571This week our special guest will be @106515636986325493284 who will be talking about 'Entity Audits'. Not sure what that is? Here's a teaser from Bill; "Before Google announced their Knowledge Base with their words about indexing things instead of strings, I was already working to make web pages "about" Something. We are seeing knowledge panels and rich snippets and sitelinks in search results. Special OneBoxes are also appearing more quickly. In response to those, we've been doing Entity audits for sites, where we look at entities that already appear on sites, and ones that maybe should appear but don't. We've been looking at what shows up when the name of a site, and the domain name for a site are searched for in terms of knowledge panels, related entities, sitelinks,  at the search engines. We're looking at what appears for these at places such as Wikipedia and Freebase an other knowledge bases. I have a couple of examples that I would like to share of how doing an entity audit can make a site richer, and potentially show up for more searches, including some changes on a site from 2005 that set me off on this path. :)"Friday SEO Chat - Entity Audits2014-08-15 19:00:0037

ISOOSI Research Engine3,497*Video Marketing - the unfair advantage* The ISOOSI Tuesday Marketing Chat ( #isoosichat  )hangout with special guests @110256277832745362774 and @109237790792840071389  joining the regular discussion panel of @113426828273677356184 @106515636986325493284 and @116843668885160648294  This week our show focuses on video marketing, and at the ways in which video excels as a medium for marketing to the extent that it almost seems like an unfair advantage. Our Guests this week are incredibly knowledgeable and talented in this space. @109237790792840071389 is famed for giving "The Scott Treatment" - Reviving, Re-packaging and Re-purposing great content with an emphasis on video and HOAs.  Among other clients, he works on doing his thing for Stonetemple's excellent video/HOA strategy. @110256277832745362774 of @105271135735494528442 is very knowledgable in this space.  Not only does he produce a range of video marketing production services for clients, he also experiments extensively with what can be done on a given platform. This week's panel will be discussing the power of video for marketing in all its aspects.  Obviously we are fans, as the weekly shows prove.  But there's a lot more to video marketing than just hangouts and live streaming. For one thing, YouTube has a massive user-base, and a search traffic all of its own, which you are not able to tap at all without some kind of video offering.  Unlike other search engines, people searching on YouTube often continue to browse through results for a long time, and not only choose one answer to their search. Google also tries to offer diverse media in every search result, meaning that some video or other is almost always in the first page of search results, but often selected from a much, much smaller pool of related content. Then there's the fact that video is one of the best forms of cross-platform content for social network platforms.  There is absolutely no better way to get a complex message onto twitter, for instance, given the character limits.  But remember also that while you have to vary the length of snippets for each platform, almost all allow a youtube video to be embedded right into the stream.  Its the one post that can work exactly the same on Facebook, Twitter, and G+ too. Even in the small details, video offers some great advantages.  With watermarking, lower-third graphical overlays, and similar in-picture branding, it is a lot harder for someone to simply copy and paste your work as their own. In the course of the show, we'll discuss what sort of investment is needed for professional looking video, how to determine the right kind of video content for your needs, and many insights into how to maximize the results of video marketing.ISOOSIchat: Video Marketing2014-07-29 21:00:00217

Glass in the Class32  *Glass in the Class Episode Season 2 Episode 1: The Art of Delivery in Public Speaking* Youtube Live Event URL:  Here's the rundown:  My classroom for 30 minutes with my students. 3 perspectives: Google Glass, The computer camera, and the camera on my guest. Discussing how communication and changing technology has affected the life/work of my guest. So who's my guest speaking about delivery you ask?! @107022061436866576067, forever an educator but at one point a teacher will be talking to my students about how the art of delivery in public speaking continues to be important, but how it might be changing with technology today. 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 @100470926227322431614 for running my cameras for me. Live Event URL:Glass in the Class: The Art of Delivery2014-06-25 22:30:0022

Ray Hiltz27,141*How 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 @107022061436866576067 join us at our virtual lunch table. Mark is the Senior Director of Online Marketing at @115515796589038584989. 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 Marketers* http://goo.gl/whr30C _This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.

ISOOSI Research Engine3,497In the latest installment of the weekly ISOOSI Tuesday Chat we are joined by @103682117587904833322 - 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, @116884753591158922581 (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 @103682117587904833322   and the  #isoosichat regulars @113426828273677356184, @106515636986325493284, and @116843668885160648294 How Do You Attract Links *Before* You Have Reputation?2014-05-20 21:00:0083

Ray Hiltz27,141There’s been a lot of squawking in the henhouse about @107117483540235115863's departure from Google and where that leaves Google Plus? The crap hit the fan when TechCrunch published its article: "Google+ is Walking Dead", and it’s been flying since. We’ve had the weekend to compose ourselves so today, the #GPlusLunchBunch  will chat about the departure of the G+ leader and what that means to the “platform”. *How do you think Google+ will be changing in the months ahead?* @107022061436866576067 wrote a personal analysis of what this change may mean. _Quo Vadis Google+? What's Next for Google's Social Network?_ http://goo.gl/KPZGk5 I particularly liked his analogy addressing the comparison of Google+ to the fate of Google Reader: _“...to say for now that turning off Google Reader was like removing a sock. Dismantling Google+ would be more like ripping out a person's nervous system.”_ Today's lunch Bunch show will be a chance for you and our panel to sit and discuss how we feel things will change...or not, with Google+ now that Vic has left and “Bez”, @113882113745075873153 is taking over. For further research, there was a great HOA from the guys at @109836237376101025302  _It's the End of Google+ As We Know It.... Or Is It?_  http://goo.gl/W3uvPV How did you feel when you heard the news? Do you think it means big changes? _This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation:_ http://goo.gl/uJh80a _If you'd like to keep on top of what's happening on Google+, subscribe to my weekly Google+ Tips of the Week Newsletter here:_ www.newraycom.com Is Google Plus Now a Minus?2014-04-29 18:15:0055

ISOOSI Research Engine3,497Special Guest:  Danny Sullivan One 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 @113217924531763968801  joins the regular ISOOSI panel (@113426828273677356184, @106515636986325493284 and @112430199625001815612)   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 20:00:00105

Glass in the Class32*Glass in the Class Episode 3: The Power of Verbal Communication today! First note: I can't schedule for a specific time but it actually starts at 9:20a.m. EST. Youtube Live Event URL: http://goo.gl/LNFqNd Here's the rundown:  My classroom for 15-20 minutes with my students. 3 perspectives: Google Glass, The computer camera, and the camera on my guest. Discussing how communication and changing technology has affected the life/work of my guest. So who's my guest of verbal communication you ask?! @107022061436866576067, forever an educator but at one point a teacher will be talking to my students about how he sees the power of verbal communication with new technology today. 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. A lot of us forget the distinction between verbal and nonverbal communication, considering it all just communication, but when functioning virtual it's a distinction we definitely have to consider and its affects on trust and authenticity.  As always I'd also like to thank @100470926227322431614 for running my cameras for me (it's really early in the morning for him) and @115091224082668507135 for the mad imaging skills on the banner!

Jason T. Wiser21,531*Storytelling for Business Building with Chris Brogan* There’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 @118320665823821681206  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?

Authorship, SEO, & Relationship Building Demystified - Featuring Guests @107022061436866576067 and @100415249515556372798*   *Mobile Users Watch Here:* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJFHaS4s338 Join us *Monday, March. 3rd. 4 pm EST/3 pm CST/2pm MST/1pm PST* for Legally Speaking. Are you on Google Plus to market, build meaning business relationships or for SEO? Do you feel like you're wasting your time or you just can't get a handle on what all the hoopla is about Google Plus, authorship, and relationship building? If so, then whether your a lawyer or anyone else who is trying to build their brand or business presence on G Plus, then this is the show for you!  *What’s Your Google Plus “Strategy?”* Everyone has their "strategy" for building their presence and relationships on Google Plus. But is it all that really worth it? What works and what doesn't? Is Google Plus worth the investment of time and energy to engage? Well, we've got two folks who have great answers to these questions and more! *Guest Speaker @107022061436866576067 on Authorship & SEO Friendly Authority Building* If anyone is adept at reading Google's "tea leaves" concerning Google Plus, authorship, and the impact all of this has on SEO, it's Mark Traphagen of @115515796589038584989. Mark is an expert on social media, content marketing, internet marketing, Google Plus Business Pages, authorship, and much more. According to Mark, his mission is to "help you get seen and heard, to get your message out and bring in people who want and need what you have to offer. My special know-how is in the intersection of social and search.” Together with @113690073826160821557, Mark co-hosts the *Digital Marketing Answers Show*.   Mark will share his insights on what works and what doesn't on Google Plus and best practices for building SEO-friendly authority and authorship. *Guest Speaker @100415249515556372798 on Good Old-Fashion Relationship Building* If anyone knows good old-fashioned relationship building, it's David Oldenberg who hosts the *Online Money Show*. Among his many accomplishments, David has spent 18 years creating and hosting business and financial talk radio shows and frequently helps others create and develop their businesses.  David will share his insights on how to leverage Google Plus to make real-world, offline business connections.   *Come Join Us on Legally Speaking* @110859590166083797997 and I, together with Mark and David, will tackle some important questions, as they relate to both SEO, search, and relationship building. Here are just a few of the topics we’ll cover: Does follower count matter? Should you care about the engagement per shared post of those who share your posts? Should we care who interacts with you on Google Plus? Do plus mentions help?  Is it wise to do round-robin sharing and link-dumping? So, join us on Legally Speaking to learn why we're here. No, we're not going to give you the meaning of life. But weLegally Speaking Hangout On Air2014-03-03 22:00:00134  
Nicholas Cardot10,440I am excited to announce the third episode of Psychological Warfare. This week we'll be continuing our discussion of weapons of influence. Recall that during our last episode we discussed the principle of social proof, the principle of authority, the principle of scarcity, and we began discussing the principle of liking. We'll be picking up with parts of the principle of liking that we weren't able to cover and then we'll be introducing the last two psychological triggers.  We're also pleased to announce a new member to our panel: Please welcome the great @115124864391789940258 as the newest psywarrior! She is a digital storyteller with degrees in political science and history. She provides roadmaps to business owners who have difficulty finding their way through the digital marketing landscape. She is going to be a powerful addition to this team! @107665939201638457855 is the world renowned creative lunatic. I call him that because his mastery of design is of epic and crazy proportions. He'll be discussing principles of social proof and principles of building authority. @116472363297290737047 is a successful serial entrepreneur and he'll be providing practical ways to implement our principles into business. He’ll also be discussing the psychological principle of liking.

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 @110746124112827812577 and @109237790792840071389 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 @103878515854423822283? 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 shervington1,115,221*Who wants to join me as I interview Jay Baer about his New York Times best selling business book?* We will be talking about the attitude/culture/approach of 'helping', including how Jay finds the culture on Google+; where he thinks we should be putting our attention right now, and where it is going in the future. Whether you are a business or an individual looking at your own approach, this should be a lot of fun and give you new insights too! *What is 'Youtility' all about?* Jay says..."The difference between helping and selling is just two letters. But those two letters are critically important to your company’s success. You’re not competing for attention only against other, similar products. You’re competing for attention against everything. To win in this hyper-competitive environment, you must ask “How can we help?” If you sell something, you make a customer today, but if you genuinely help someone, you create a customer for life. This is Youtility." Sound good? See you then!An interview with Jay Baer about his book 'YouTility"!2014-02-25 20:00:0076

ISOOSI Research Engine3,497@107022061436866576067 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. @112430199625001815612  President, ISOOSIGhost Town or Land of Opportunity - Google+2014-02-11 21:00:0095

Jason T. Wiser21,531*What you NEED to know about SEO?* Join us on Mobile http://jtw.bz/MTseoHOA In this series, we've looked at Business Strategy, Marketing, and Monetization. Now it's time for Optimization.  SEO, or search engine optimization, is one of those terms that is often misunderstood and misrepresented. There are hundreds of SEO "gurus" out there teaching the latest tips and tricks. In fact there is so much misinformation being regurgitated and thrown around its almost impossible for a small business owner know where to begin.  And that's exactly why I've invited SEO expert +Mark Traphagen  to the program.  Mark has a proven track record as one of today's most respected authorities on SEO.  This week Mark will answer questions like:  ⇒ What is optimization and why do I need it?  ⇒ Where should I begin? ⇒ Can I do it myself? ⇒ 7 things you must do for your website SEO ⇒ What is the difference between onsite and offsite SEO? We will be answering your questions on this event, start asking now!  Catch past interviews at http://ontracktips.com Subscribe to "Get on Track" on YouTube http://bit.ly/u2beWS    Join us on Twitter using the hashtag #OnTrackTips   Visit our Facebook App http://jtw.bz/FBonTrack If you like this series, *please share this with 2 friends*What you NEED to know about SEO2013-11-11 19:00:00160

Ronnie Bincer109,992*Google 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.

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. More and more attention should be given to what happens with our activity on Google Plus and this HOA will help you know where to focus your attention if Google Search Results mean anything to you and your work on Google Plus. *Some points to ponder are:* 1. PageRank is actually about quality, not quantity. 2. Why engaging with your own experts is better than many others. 3. For Numbers, look at followers, *But for results, look at PageRank.* 4. Why Google's updates are trying to perfect PR, not replace it. 5. Why PR in verified profiles is Google's purest authorship ranking system to date. Much of this discussion has come about from +Joshua Berg's interesting mini-series on *Google Plus PageRank* here are some links if you have not read them: Pt 1: Is Google+ Page Rank the culprit behind the current... http://goo.gl/R4TZM Pt 2: How PageRank in Google+ is Earned.

martin shervington1,115,221In this interview with the brightest chap on the subject, I ad going to be asking every question I've wanted to ask Mark for months! We should all get the most understanding on this whole subject area in a rapid fire, energetic and dense 30-40 minute session. Content will include... What is ‘authorship’? How do you set authorship up? (G+ account, website, publishers) What is the benefit of setting it up? Can a business Page have authorship? What is ‘rel publisher’ all about? What is PageRank? (simple version!) Is this all about ‘relevance’? How do the people you to whom you are connected matter now? What advice would you give to: a) an individual, and  b) a business to get it all set up! See you all there :DJust about everything you need to know about 'authorship', 'author rank' and 'social SEO', with Mark Traphagen2013-03-30 18:00:0094

Gervais found a statistically significant relationship between the extent to which individuals exhibited a more analytic style and their endorsement of evolution. Importantly, the relationship remained significant even when controlling for other variables that predict evolutionary beliefs, including belief in God, religious upbringing and political conservatism.

In a live Town Hall on Facebook today, Mark Zuckerberg was asked, "What is your definition of happiness. His answer sits pretty well with me. Here it is:

To me, happiness is doing something meaningful that helps people and that I believe in with people I love.

I think lots of people confuse happiness with fun. I don't believe it is possible to have fun every day. But I do believe it is possible to do something meaningful that helps people people every day.

As I've grown up, I've gained more appreciation for my close relationships -- my wife, my partners at work, my close friends. Nobody builds something by themselves. Long term relationships are very important.

What that means is, designing a website is cool. Getting some SEO is terrific. Designing a brand is wonderful.

None of it makes a bit of difference when trying to navigate the content requirements for people along a "buying journey" who may or may not have ever considered what you sell as a solution, if you haven't considered every stage of their buying decision.

Think of it this way. ERP is a cross functional sale. To get a deal, you need to appeal to decision makers and their teams across HR, Finance, Sales, Marketing, HR, Operations, Service, Assembly...etc etc.

Complex Buying Cycles

Here's the thing, I don't come from a background of selling widgets or small dollar value products and services. I come from a background of selling expensive things that require lots of consideration on the part of the buyer.

What that means is, designing a website is cool. Getting some SEO is terrific. Designing a brand is wonderful.

None of it makes a bit of difference when trying to navigate the content requirements for people along a "buying journey" who may or may not have ever considered what you sell as a solution, if you haven't considered every stage of their buying decision.

Think of it this way. ERP is a cross functional sale. To get a deal, you need to appeal to decision makers and their teams across HR, Finance, Sales, Marketing, HR, Operations, Service, Assembly...etc etc.

Each of these functional pillars has leaders who have agendas. In most cases, those agendas are in silos. What that means is that internally, no one agrees, and in fact, in many cases, they don't like each other.

Now, not only do they have different agendas, they have different immediate needs. Some want to buy now. Some want to postpone. Some don't care at all.

Before a sales pro ever gets to ANY of these people, in what one might construe as a sales cycle, MARKETING needs to be Johnny on the spot with the content that does all the things necessary to get each and every one of these functional teams moving on the same direction.

THEN, by the time a sales cycle starts, the sales pro needs to be adept at blending and building rapport with each and every person that will influence the buying decision.

If you think building a website is complicated, try navigating even a moderately large enterprise at both the executive, middle management and minion level, ACROSS functions.

I get why marketers think they are the bomb. But trust me on this, it doesn't get much more complex than big company selling.

Content marketing is not one dimensional and gets even more multidimensional the more complicated the buying decision is.

Know how to sell. It's what matters.

In a live Town Hall on Facebook today, Mark Zuckerberg was asked, "What is your definition of happiness. His answer sits pretty well with me. Here it is:

To me, happiness is doing something meaningful that helps people and that I believe in with people I love.

I think lots of people confuse happiness with fun. I don't believe it is possible to have fun every day. But I do believe it is possible to do something meaningful that helps people people every day.

As I've grown up, I've gained more appreciation for my close relationships -- my wife, my partners at work, my close friends. Nobody builds something by themselves. Long term relationships are very important.

Important insights from +Bill Slawski (with HT to +AJ Kohn )

How Google May Classify Sites as Low Quality Sites

It describes how a site might lose traffic if ranking scores for links pointed to it are below a certain threshold.

Very happy to see +Bill Slawski talking about this more. I believe Google relies far more on link quality (in various forms) as a way to identify low quality sites. There have been rumblings offline about this all the way back to Panda 1.0 and supported through mentions here and there, sometimes in a tangential way.

Gervais found a statistically significant relationship between the extent to which individuals exhibited a more analytic style and their endorsement of evolution. Importantly, the relationship remained significant even when controlling for other variables that predict evolutionary beliefs, including belief in God, religious upbringing and political conservatism.

Why You’re Pretty Much Unconscious All the Time
by Jeffrey Kluger - Time
#neuroscience

In a new paper published in the journal Behavioral and Brain Sciences, a group of researchers led by associate professor of psychology Ezequiel Morsella of San Francisco State University, took on the somewhat narrower question of exactly what consciousness is—and came up with a decidedly bleaker view: It’s pretty much nothing at all. Never mind the five characters controlling your thoughts, you barely control them. It’s the unconscious that’s really in charge.

A great post from +David Amerland that explains the value many of us have found on Google+, that works in spite of (and maybe because of?) the fact that our "friends and family aren't here."

Why I am on G+ so much

I had to explain to a corporate colleague, yesterday, why I spend so much time and energy on G+ engaging and interacting, putting up original content (when my website should be really benefiting from it) and sharing a lot of original information and insights (which should logically be kept for my books which bring me money.) 

It was a fair question which became the initiation point for a long discussion into which were also drawn his line manager and the company's Corporate Communications expert. 

I had to delve deep into my own motivations in order to actually make sense to people who don't use G+ and see social networks only as a marketing tool. As the discussion evolved I used their Whiteboard to sketch a few connections and relationships. I began to explain that there is a high level or reciprocity within G+ that is not evidenced in Twitter or even Facebook despite the fact that the latter is mostly close friends and family.

Once I started to look at it through the prism of Trust (which is the subject of an upcoming book which has me buried in research as well as writing) things began to fall into place.

What's more, the usual 'soft' platitudes of making friends with people you have never met and actually trusting them, suddenly began to make more sense.

Everything here is a contract of sorts, running on Transactional Trust and governed by the Reciprocity Response (https://goo.gl/mPAJWc). Transactional Trust, in turn, is made up of three other different types of trust, each of which has its own key points.

Not only does this help all of us interact in ways which provide mutual gains but it allows us to interact with different people, differently, calculate 'trust' differently for everyone and differently for each situation while still understanding that it is trust we use. 

Trust is the key ingredient in establishing and strengthening connections between individuals which then begin to figure into such other concepts as identity, self-worth and the establishment of one's presence. In semantic search trust is the key value ascribed in the interaction and engagement between Entities. 

When I got home my Whiteboard doodle became the diagram you see below. Have one awesome Saturday. :) ___A great post from +David Amerland that explains the value many of us have found on Google+, that works in spite of (and maybe because of?) the fact that our "friends and family aren't here."

+Eli Fennell with a great US Gay Marriage FAQ

U.S. Gay Marriage FAQ

With gay marriage now legal in all 50-states of the United States, some people may have questions. Here are some answers:

1) Do I Have to Get Gay Married Now?

No. You do not. Ever. Unless you want to.

2) Won't This Lead to Polygamy?

Not likely. SCOTUS ruled that same-sex couples deserve the same Due Process and Equal Protection rights as opposite-sex couples, interracial couples, etc... Their ruling requires only that the right of two consenting adults to marry not be limited by race, gender, sexuality, creed, etc... Subsequently, were a state to legalize Polygamy, they could not discriminate between one straight man marrying two straight women, one bi man marrying one straight woman and one gay man, one lesbian marrying two others, etc... However, as long as no one can enjoy the benefits of Polygamy (i.e. as long as it is equally illegal for everyone), Polygamy needn't be legalized.

3) Won't This Lead to People Marrying Animals?

sigh

No. No it won't. Because animals aren't people, cannot consent, and do not have Constitutional protections like the right to marry. Does that answer your question, Mister Santorum?

4) How Will This Affect My Straight Marriage and Family?

It won't. Unless maybe you're in denial about being in the closet, and this gives you the courage to come out.

5) Won't It Violate My Religious Rights to Have to Treat Gays as Equals?

No, it really, really won't. But don't worry, I'm sure you'll find some way to still treat them as lesser beings if you try hard enough.___+Eli Fennell with a great US Gay Marriage FAQ

A great introduction by +Omi Sido to what I consider one of the most important Whiteboard Friday's +Rand Fishkin has done this year.

#mustseetv  

How Google May Use Searcher, Usage, & Clickstream Behavior to Impact Rankings - Whiteboard Friday by +Rand Fishkin  (https://goo.gl/qofpBR )
(Go and read this article first by +Bill Slawski goo.gl/UzACXI)

You may not realize it at first but +Rand Fishkin is actually talking about #Google implementing more and more semantic search into its core algorithms. 

“At its most basic level semantic search applies meaning to the connections between the different data nodes of the Web in ways that allow a clearer understanding of them than we have ever had to date.” - +David Amerland  (goo.gl/AtQjOp)

On the other side +Rand Fishkin (+Moz) is talking about “Why Branding Is Indispensable for SEO” (+Mark Traphagen  - https://goo.gl/Ox6fhG).

Suddenly those two terms '#Branding' and '#SEO' are coming on top of my digital marketing agenda.
Well it was about time to replace the old cliché “Content Is King” with something more personal like: 'Branding is King'. 

Why? Everybody is talking about content.

Well  “presumably, because everyone else around you would also be doing the same thing” (+David Amerland  - http://goo.gl/WmtALN). There are many content writers around and your company/brand is the only unique thing you have got at your disposal.

Concentrate on what YOU can give to your customers.

“Therefore, by focusing on the process by which one serves customers instead of one specific solution, the brand has now made room for a lifetime of service and opened the door to endless opportunities.” - +Kristin Drysdale http://goo.gl/A0d2p0

“Be yourself. You're much better that way. Everyone else is already taken.”
