Gregg Lantz2,962Tomorrow is a taxing day here in the United States. You get to decide if you want to buy Glass (sorry IRS). If you're not sure and would like to know what others are saying, add this circle.  You'll be able to look at public posts from people that use Glass and people that purchased Glass and put it on the shelf while software was being developed. You'll get both sides of the story. Hopefully this circle will help make the decision process a little easier. Don't forget to post your questions with #askanexplorer  so  people can chime in and help answer your questions. #glassexplorers   #throughglass   #sharedcircles   #circleshare   #wearables   #wearabletech   #glasswaiters  2014-04-14 21:08:59425004CC G+

Ian Archibald19,730People I Learn FromWe all have people we like to learn from, who we might look up to to act as a mentor and people we connect with.  This share is people who meet these criteria for me.I haven't crafted any circle shares of late, and those who remember the shares that I created during Christmas took a lot of effort - sorting through 100's of posts, locating the top people/posts/engagement, etc.  The last significant one I did took me over 7 hours to produce.  I really enjoy creating them, but alas I don't have that much time.Who's in this circle?A lot of people you likely know and may already have circled. There are educators, scientists, speakers, developers, SEO Experts and just plain awesome people.I know many people like to add rules to their circle shares. Personally, I don't. There are many reasons for this, but let's just say, I don't like spam and the countless BS Community requests that surely follow. In short, don't blindly add people just for the sake of doing so.How Can I Get Into This Circle?I don't add people blindly.  Each person in this list has been vetted. If there needs to be some rules to end up here...• Be active - No activity = no circle.• Create Quality Content - I want to hear what you have to say• Be Original - Be Awesome• Engage with people. If you're not being seen, who will find you?Hope you all have a great week!2014-03-31 01:02:36186182223CC G+
Richi Jennings57,419Sunday Circle Share of Awesome... ~ A big HELLO to all the new Plussers I met over the past few weeks -- and a few I reconnected with. In the main, these folks are engagers, not passive consumers, so do add them if you're looking for interesting conversations here on G+. Also, feel free to share this publicly. Spread the love! Missed the previous share? Go here: plus.google.com/+richijennings/posts/9YV2AsGVPcv If you're using the G+ mobile app, this may not work correctly, because circle sharing doesn't seem to be implemented right :-(#sharedcircles  #publicsharedcircle  #circleshare #sharedpubliccircle   #circlesharing   #circle  #hashtag  2014-03-30 13:33:315611623CC G+

Jean-Marc Luna35,467Learning with friendsCircle of thanksIt is time for me to apply for my small business all what I've learned here in recent months.By sharing this circle, I want to thank those with whom I have gained a better knowledge of best practices of the Internet and information, particularly about G+ which represents now (and tomorrow) an enormous part of the Web dynamics.I named this circle "Learning with friends" because it sums up for me a big part of that is Google+.1- Learning, because these people have given me valuable assistance by sharing their knowledge and their information and they have convinced me by their active presence of the importance of spending time on G+, of learn more and always consider the long term.2- Friends, because they do it with generosity, not against party, in a spirit of exchange and mutual enrichment, as friends do.The common vector is that I always read their posts carefully.I communicate regularly with some, I just "plus" with others (often because my bad english keeps me better participate) to mark my interest and I discovered regularly (often in comments) new people who all publish / share high quality stuff.Thank you +martin shervington, +Denis Labelle, +Dustin W.

Stephan Hovnanian27,240Conversation Hosts on Google+Circle number 2 that I talked about in my latest ebook on managing your Google+ circles (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IU1JXUY) is a way for newer users to include activity in their stream that consistently has value and discussion. In other words, these people continually debunk the ghost-town myth, and are very welcoming to newcomers on the platform. I'm sending my audience your way. Take good care of them.Pick up a copy of Google+ Pro Tips: Managing your Google+ Circles now: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IU1JXUY (you do not need a Kindle device to read kindle ebooks, just a free reader app available on iOS, Android, and desktop).  #googleplus   #stephanhovprotip   #stephanhovnanian  2014-03-06 22:55:17347418CC G+
Stephan Hovnanian27,240Google+ Starter CircleIn my second ebook in the Google+ Pro Tips series (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IU1JXUY) I reference two circles that will help newcomers to Google+ get their feet wet in a big way. This one includes people and pages who regularly post about Google+, and whose primary business revolves around Google+. There are obviously dozens more amazing users here that would fit this description, but I know these users well enough to recommend them within my ebook.Pick up a copy of Google+ Pro Tips: Managing Your Google+ Circles on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IU1JXUY  _(you do not need a Kindle device to read these, just a free reader app on iOS, Android, or PC)._  #googleplus   #stephanhovprotip     #stephanhovnanian  2014-03-06 22:52:14275322CC G+

Why Does Google+ Have View Counts Now?

In this 5 minute video from the +Stone Temple Consulting Here's Why series, +Eric Enge asks me to explain the new Google+ view counts that show on most profiles and pages. 

For more about Google+ view counts, see http://www.stonetemple.com/new-google-plus-views-count-important-metric-or-vanity-of-vanities/

TRANSCRIPT

ERIC: So Mark, recently Google+ added view counts to your profile pages and hovercards, right? Why did they do that?

MARK: We now see view counts on Google+ pages and profile. If you go to someone's profile of page, and you look in the upper left-hand corner on the cover photo, you'll see two metrics, if the user chooses to display them. One is a follower count (which we've seen before; it formerly said "people who have you in circles"), and then views.

How Do Webmasters Actually Respond to Google Penalties?

My friend +Russ Jones has published an intriguing study on +Moz looking at the actual, post-penalty behavior trends by webmasters of penalized sites. He looked at:

1. Whether they actually worked to remove bad links.
2. Did they increase AdWords spend (to compensate for lost traffic)?
3. Do they actually recover from the penalties?

Some of the results may surprise you, as Russ does some mythbusting.

What Kind of Content Gets Most Shared?

Results of a huge study carried out by +BuzzSumo and reported by +noah kagan analyzing the 100 million+ content pieces for which they've tracked social shares over the past eight months.

The results are quite revealing, and cover a wide range of attributes, such as the post's length, sentiment, image presence, influencer involvement, and many others.

As +Rand Fishkin cautioned in his share of this, not all these may be directly causal, so read with discernment. And we should also keep in mind that any such large scale study is giving us averaged results across a wide range of verticals and audience-types, so your mileage may vary.

Nonetheless, this study seems to both confirm some conventional wisdom about content sharability while upsetting a few cherished apple carts as well.

Today Majestic has launched a new version of Site Explorer, which has categorized the whole web into about 800 categories.  That’s about 700 billion pages right now, with our full historic index to follow when we can.

Rather than totally repeat the announcement over at http://www.stateofdigital.com/majestic-trust-flow/ (thanks +Bas van den Beld ) I thought I’d talk a little bit on G+ about how we have done it… without giving away the whole secret sauce of course.
 
Any object on the web can be categorized… not just traditional web pages. Here’s +John Mueller 's Google+ profile shows that he is primarily all about Computers / Internet / Web Design and Development and secondarily about Computers / Internet / Searching for example. Hope that’s a fair assessment of you John? Check out a few friends while you are here! J

New: Assess Topical Trust Flow of a Site's Back Links

When assessing the link health of a site, it's not only important to look at the number and authority of inbound links, but their relevancy to the site. It's been difficult to get a quick picture of that, until now.

+Majestic SEO has just introduced Topical Trust Flow, a score that takes into account both the likely trust level (i.e., how likely search engines are to trust the link) and the relevancy of the linking page/site to the target page/site.

Does Content Marketing Work?
Video #2 in my Content Marketing 101 series.

For some companies content marketing is old hat news, but most are just starting to believe in creating their own media to attract targeted, profitable leads.

It's natural to be skeptical about a process you're unsure of and in this case, ask the question, "Does Content Marketing Work?"

Here's a video to answer that question.

Introducing Bing Predictions: Using Search Data for Real World Predictions

Bing today announced a new Predictions search feature that uses data from user searches combined with social signals from Facebook and Twitter to make predictions about real world events. In their testing they found that they were able to produce a high degree of accuracy for things like elections and viewer-choice awards shows or reality TV competitions.

In their blog post you can see that the level of data massaging, including adjustment for variables such as regional prejudices, is quite sophisticated. While it will show up for very limited search queries right now, Bing promises to expand the feature in the future.

We've come a long way since the days when the Ford Rouge Complex was the cutting edge of organizational design. But in some ways, we're still stuck in the old model. Though we might not say it explicitly, we still tend to think of the corporation as a kind of machine; a mechanical, deterministic thing that we wind up and point in the direction of making money.

That is the old model, where connections are deliberate, planned and controlled, and it is not the true nature of the firm. The true nature of the firm is nature, and it is now time to look to biology for guidance on how it creates value in the new,... more »

The 3 Golden Rules of Title Tags for SEO

Our CEO +Eric Enge's latest article for +Search Engine Watch teaches you the three most important things you can know about the lowly title tag. Read and share it NOW at --> stonet.co/1niHVKI

Actually, as you'll see in his article, the title tag can be quite important to your site's SEO. Eric recommends that you examine your title tags for these three "golden rules:"

1. Each title tag should focus on a unique aspect of its page.

2. Don't overdo keyword granularity in your title tags.

3. Don't reuse title tags on more than one page.

Even though the big dollars for brand building are still flowing to TV, in this article for +Moz +Will Critchlow states why he believes the future for branding is digital, and why this could be great news for the "little guys" out there.

...the biggest brands of tomorrow will be built online. This will be partly because the tools we have available to build brands online are going to get better and better, and partly because money is going to flow to digital from TV.

Google Authorship Working for Slideshare Again

Last year I announced that it was possible to verify a connection between your Slideshare profile and your Google+ profile in order to qualify your slide decks on +SlideShare for Google Authorship. 

But shortly after that Google stopped showing authorship snippets for Slideshare results. Now they are back as you can see from my screen capture below.

It is very important that people know that just setting up authorship successfully for any site does NOT guarantee that an author photo will show in search. Google decides algorithmically when it is best to show such results for a particular searcher for a particular query. We should not lead people to believe that it is automatic simply by following all the right steps.

Also, I believe Slideshare still has some minimum number of followers for your Slidesharep... more »

The 3 Golden Rules for Title Tags

Does the title tag of a web page still influence SEO?  You bet it does. The 3 golden rules in this article should give you the basics on how to map out how you use these tags.  Here is the short version:

1. Have a page for every major product/service/need.  Give these pages a title tag the describes the unique aspects of the page.

2. Don't implement a page (and hence a title tag) for each search term variant you find during keyword research.

3. Never reuse a title tag.  If you can't think of a different title tag for a given page, then why does that page exist?

NASA's Hangar 1: Among the world's largest freestanding structures 
Hangar One is one of the world's largest freestanding structures, covering 8 acres (32,000 m2). The hangar was constructed in 1931. It is a Naval Historical Monument and a State of California Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. In May 2008, The National Trust for Historic Preservation listed Hangar One on their list of America's "Most Endangered Places". NASA's Ames Research Center is currently evaluating bids to lease the hangar and Moffett Federal Airfield.

How to Make Sure You Never Miss the Best Stuff on Google+

This shot tutorial shows you how to add someone to what's commonly known as a Subscription circle. 

Basically, Google+ allows you to turn on notifications for your circles so that every time someone in that circle posts something, you get a notification either via email (dependent on your email settings) and under the bell icon as a notification. 

This allows you to keep special tabs on the people who provide the most value or are the most interesting on Google+. People you don't want to miss anything from. 

As you can see in the attached image, it's pretty easy:

1. Hover your pointer over the person's name. Their hovercard will pop up.
2. Hover over the circle button on their hovercard and add them to the circle that you want to be your Subscription circle. 3... more »

Critters at the Museum

Earlier this week I took a morning off to take my grandkids who were on spring break to Durham's +Museum of Life and Science. Here's a flipbook video of some of the critters we saw. #plusonly

What I love most about this post by +Martin W. Smith is that it was born out of the real struggles, the actual blood-sweat-tears of an infant startup clawing for its first breaths of real air.

Recently when the weather has been nice I've been working outside at Durham's stunning American Tobacco Campus (truly has to be one of the best repurposed urban spaces in any small city in America). And that's allowed me to occasionally drop in on my friends +Martin W. Smith, +Phil Buckley, and +Frank Pollock who are crafting their startup +CrowdFunde in the Startup Factory at the ATC.

So yesterday I stopped by and +Phil Buckley excitedly took me back to a conference room whiteboard. What I saw there is what you hear about in this post. But moreexc... more »

Why Memes May Be Serious Business for Your Brand Messages

Inspired by a thought-provoking post* by +David Amerland this morning (see stonet.co/1hWpdp6) my latest +LinkedIn Publishing post (linked below the image) explores why brands ought to take memes seriously, and put them to intentional use to reinforce their messages.

(Does one really need to put "thought-provoking post" before "by David Amerland?")

Over 9 years ago, I took a series of photos while on a California road trip, thinking they would make a great panorama if I ever got around to stitching them together. A few weeks later I started my job at Google and found that we were working on Picasa Web. I had the idea that we should be able to detect when a series of photos is a panorama (based on timestamps and overlapping scene content) and then offer to stitch the photos together into a panorama for you. Today I ported a bunch of my old Flickr photos over to G+, and lo and behold, G+ Photos did exactly that to the sequence of photos that inspired that idea – and did an even better job of it, simply doing the work instead of asking me question.

It's nice to see things come full circle and then some. A big thank you to my colleagues on G+ Photos for making this a reality.

Google+ Tip: Grab a Link to Your Google+ Post

Did you know you can link directly to any of your public posts on Google+, and anyone can see the linked post, even if they aren't signed in to Google?

It's very easy to do, and there are two ways to do it:

1. Right click the time stamp just after the poster's name and copy the link.
2. Click the arrow in a circle to the right of the poster's name and select "link to this post."

You can then use that link anywhere else on the web (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) to link back to that post!

Another Blog Network Hit by Google

This is one that claimed that it had "Zero Footprint" - but it looks like they got stomped.  They no longer rank for their brand name.

Expect this to keep happening.  Google is going to take them down one by one.

Buttons

A special service of CircleCount.com is the following button.

The button shows the number of followers you have directly in a small button. You can add this button to your website, like the +1-Button of Google or the Like-Button of Facebook.






You can add this button directly in your website. For more information about the CircleCount Buttons and the description how to add them to another page click here.
