ISOOSI Research Engine3,444Beyond Keywords: Moving From Words to Concepts with +Peter Hatherley and +Doc Sheldon We all know that keywords are generally not quite as 'key' as they used to be.  Google's Hummingbird update has lead to us all noticing a lot more semantic matching to the concepts we search for, rather than the precise wording.  This week, #isoosichat  will discuss this shift in more detail, and explore how we deal with these changes.+Peter Hatherley is fascinated by the semantic connections in words and language.  He'll be helping us look at the broader and sometimes less obvious connections between words and concepts.+Doc Sheldon returns again, always a welcome guest, Doc has said before that he's long moved away from the old method of using keywords into far more diverse and natural language writing around the concept.With the help of these guests, and +Bill Slawski's incredible knowledge of the papers and patents of the search engines, we'll look at where the 'best practices' of today should be, and talk about ways to better appeal to semantic search algorithms.We'll also discuss places where keywords (in the old sense of them) still matter, and why. Places where exact matching of terms is important.Links:G+ Hangout Event: http://isoo.si/Mw84CYoutube version: http://isoo.si/r4D3HMain Comment Discussion: http://isoo.si/Mw84CRecommended Reading: http://isoo.si/Do59T and http://isoo.si/Si5j3Beyond Keywords: Moving From Words to Concepts2014-07-15 21:00:0059G+

ISOOSI Research Engine3,444Resistance to SEO - when professions collide with +Susan Finch  and +Michelle Lowery  In this show, we look at how and why some professionals, including bloggers, Usability types, web devs, and sales copywriters, have a negative and dismissive view of SEO.  Despite the success stories, and the huge demand for SEO generally across the board, the negative reputation in many places is still very apparent, with SEO professionals often still treated as though peddling snake-oil to the gullible.+Susan Finch  has said "Coming from a PR/Marketing background since way back, I've always felt true content was king. Never been a fan of working SEO. I'm in the dismissive corner due to watching the negative affect "SEO professionals" have caused clients and others. I've worked hard in the past with clients to undo the damage by the snake oil types. Has left a bad taste in my mouth."She's not alone.It is all too easy for SEO professionals inside 'the echo chamber' to hear primarily only from people who understand SEO and believe in it.  In the wider world, a great many people who have strong input on websites are quite dismissive of SEO, having primarily seen only the kind that appears in a million spam emails.+Michelle Lowery suggested the topic for this week, as she has close ties to the SEO world, but also gets to see the views that some other copywriters have about SEO.There are still a great many bloggers, for just one example, who think SEO is an unnecessary measure - you just create good articles and content and Google will figure it all out.  Others have read a few too many of the "SEO in 10 easy steps" articles who think that those ten steps are all there is.  No matter that around 80% of the websites hit by the Panda update were blogs and bloggers... It isn't just one-sided either.  There are many SEOs of varying skill levels who are dismissive of all the other facets of successful web ventures.  SEOs who mistakenly put an importance on rankings ahead of usability, or conversions - leading to a site that gets lots of people to see how much it sucks.  Heck, even very experienced SEOs sometimes make very dismissive or even disparaging rResistance to SEO - When Professions Collide2014-06-10 21:00:0059G+

ISOOSI Research Engine3,444In 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+

Jim Munro17,058Why I think TechCrunch nailed it.I think Techcrunch is the pits, gutter journalism, but I also think Alexia Totsis was accidentally right when she diagnosed G+ as terminal. With only her deep throat's information to go on she would not have had enough to make such a huge call. She should have waited to make a careful analysis but that's not how techCrunch operates.I think what's happened since has borne out her wild guess though. She could not have known that Larry Page and Dave Besbris were about to go radio silent apart from a few feelgood and pr posts.The guy who said only two or three years ago "Google is Google+" or vice-versa, has now said in his farewell to Vic Gundotra, "In the meantime we’ll continue working hard to build great new experiences for the ever increasing number of Google+ fans." Sorry Larry but I come to G+ to hear from and learn from my friends as well as find a sounding board for my own opinions. I am not a "fan" and a "great new experience" for me would be a page that loads completely in a reasonable time. Vic Gundotra might as well have said that he'd grown tired of swimming up the waterfall. The new guard does not see G+ as a means of communication. It's clear that they see us as "fans" to be distracted by sparkly things. If they'd wanted to communicate and talk sense to their users, they would have done so by now. Google just failed the test of social media.I won't be leaving G+ until it's most valuable core features are withdrawn. Other ancillary features will live on because there's a compelling business case for them but I don't think it will take many years before some management drone sunsets the core functionality of G+. Much current growth has come from android, once Nokia starts taking big chunks of that market, I think it might be time to start looking for the green exit signs.It's no big deal, all that's required at present is to devise the exit strategy that I did not ever think would be needed. We'll be talking about this and other stuff in the Social Media Fridays HOA, starting in a few minutes.Social Media Fridays 2.2014-05-02 08:01:245G+

ISOOSI Research Engine3,444Ep 21: We are excited to have +Michael King join our regular Tuesday   #isoosichat  on April 15th with roundtable regulars +Ammon Johns, +Bill Slawski, +Carlos Fernandes and +Erik StaffordUnderstanding the target audience has always been a key element to successful marketing, however many businesses often forget the importance of it in their online activities.Irrespective of the channel - search, social, video, email - and the content by which you aim to attract them to your offerings, understanding  your target market mix is crucial for success.In this hangout we'll discuss with Mike the subject of online personas and methodologies he has used over the years to help him use these to great effect.We'll discuss the use of user demographic tools and analysis to help build up more accurate data driven representations of market segments... and the ideal customer avatar for your business.Why is this so important? If you know your audience, you then can tailor the content and user experience to suit and subsequently improve the rate of conversion. Using data to build clear images of segments and personas can transform  your online presence considerably. Not only in terms of reaching the audience more effectively...  but also how you communicate to them when they're "in front" of you.Personalizing the experience, building the trust and improving the chance to persuade and convert!Market Segmentation: Understanding Your Audience with Michael King2014-04-15 21:00:0051G+

ISOOSI Research Engine3,444Tuesday March 11th we have a great  #ISOOSIChat  lined up for our audience with our special guests +Alan Bleiweiss and +David Harry. Alan and David will join our panel regulars +Ammon Johns +Bill Slawski and +Carlos Fernandes to discuss the subject of search engine penalties.We'll get to know Panda (again) and our old friend Penguin. We'll discuss the differences between algorithmic penalties and manual penalties... and other types of penalties you may have encountered along the way too. How do you know if your website is under the dark cloud of a penalty?If you are under a penalty what are things you need to do to start the recovery process. Should you use Google's link "Disavow Tool" ?  If so, when...  and are there some best practices that can be highlighted to improve the chances of a manual reconsideration review after submitting a disavow link file.What kind of timeline should you expect for a recovery to occur if those processes are implemented....   and is recovery even a possibility?It can be a very complicated subject for business owners to grasp if they are not immersed in search engine marketing on a daily basis. What also makes it worse is that sometime business owners have found themselves in this situation because of techniques implemented by agencies they had hired to help them. We'll try to break it down in a simple way to give the viewers who find themselves in this situation the answers and resources they need so they can turn the page.... and start the road to recovery.Pandas, Penguins & Penalties - ISOOSI Tuesday Chat2014-03-11 20:00:0093G+
ISOOSI Research Engine3,444This week's #isoosichat is looking at a common problem we see for many companies - Thin Content Pages.  The typical scenario is where a company knows it needs to create content for certain search terms, most especially locational searches, but then really struggles to find unique, relevant, meaningful content on those pages.The number of times where I see a company using a dull boilerplate template for their service in [$location], where only the location string is changing from one location page to another, across hundreds or even thousands of pages.In this show the +ISOOSI Research Engine regulars and I will be joined by +Bill Slawski +David Harry and +Terry Van Horne to talk about thin content, how to honestly look at your own pages for depth and relevance, and how to target those niche searches with meaty, relevant, and above all, meaningful content.Making Your Thin Content Phat!2014-02-18 21:00:0015G+
ISOOSI Research Engine3,444+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+

Kathi Browne9,603What part do relevance and influence play in getting your healthcare hospital or practice found on the web? Semantic search is a term that has recently taken on new popularity. It refers to a complicated process of giving contextual meaning and more accurate interpretation to words or phrases people search on. Google has moved toward semantic indexing, so if you want your doctors to get found, yesterday’s SEO tricks won't work. There's a whole new prescription for getting found.My guest, +David Amerland   has spent months researching, testing, and documenting what Google looks for to determine what should appear in its search results. Tune into the conversation LIVE and get some fantastic semantic search tips from the expert.Want to Ask a Question?If you would like to be an audience participant and ask your question live from inside the hangout, let me know in advance.

Jason Darrell20,419A Circle of Bloggers -|- FYIOver time, this circle has fluctuated in populace and purpose. It's simply called "Blogger" - at one point or another, I've read a blog, liked what I've seen and added the author thus.There will be some noticeable absences. I have Pro Copywriters, G+ on Steroids and Google Awesome circles, too. If you're not in here, blog and I engage regularly, you're in one of those.However, being in this circle doesn't preclude you from being in those others. I know several people here I have in multiple circles.This isn't a 'shared circle' as in: add your name, plus 1 it and share it.These peops have been hand-picked by me over (almost) 3 years.

Dan Rippon424Around 12 months ago, I came across a shared circle of an "SEO Brains Trust" but I can't recall the name of the person who shared it (sorry if that was you!). Since then I've been adding to, and refining the circle to my own "brains trust", and it's time to share it on... There'll be some you've heard of, some you may not, and obviously some I've missed; but if you're looking to jump start a 123 People in SEO / SEM I Should Follow circle this Sunday, this is as good as any place to kick off...It's pretty broad: bloggers, content marketers, G+'ers, local and technical SEO specialists, conversioneers, inbounders and general marketing types - a hot mix for sure, but I'm sure you'd get value from all of them.I've roughly curated the circle to those that are active here on G+ (and hopefully with more than just dumping links), but I may have skipped a couple if they are particularly well known - perhaps in preparation for when they do see the light? ;)Please feel free to re-share if you find it useful!2013-07-07 09:56:12123916CC G+

We just updated our Transparency Report, showing how many requests Google gets for information about its users. But we're not allowed to give the full story because the U.S. government says that requests under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) must be kept secret. We can tell you this: Requests have more than doubled around the world since 2009, and more than tripled in the U.S.: http://g.co/u5sp

Share this if you believe you have a right to know what our governments are up to.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Miranda for a few years now, so I know for a fact that she held some of those positions. And because I know her character I have no doubt she also held those with which I wasn't involved. This kind of bat-shit crazy stalking is pitiful, pathetic and need I say, illegal.

Skype Translator Means Never Having To Learn Another Language Again
Language barriers are about to be broken way down.

Skype Translator will allows users speak to into the video chatting service in their language of choice. The words are then translated into the recipient's preferred language. The system will hear users' words and do its best to translate them in real time. The display will show a text translation of what was just spoken in case the automated voice isn't able to handle a pronunciation or moves too fast.

Preparing for the Dojo's Hangout in about an hour, discussing what SEO is and isn't...

Analogy: When you want to optimize your car's performance, you look at several different "channels"... the right fuel, carburetion, engine timing, tires, load, driving habits... they all contribute. It's the same with a web business's performance... some of those tasks are reasonably addressed by your mechanic, but others fall outside his traditional scope. What would you call someone that tries to advise you on all of them?

There was a time that a decent mechanic could offer you good advice on all of them. A car was a relatively simple conglomeration of subsystems that all worked together, and he might have a solid understanding of how each of those aspects would affect performance.

He'd ask you whether you were looking for speed and power or... more »

Will backlinks lose their importance in ranking? +Matt Cutts answered this question in his new video.

Sometimes the backlinks matters but over the time maybe it will be less important to match the search query by the users.

Came across something that got my curiosity up this morning and I was wondering if anyone else has seen something similar. I came up with a question.

My business is branded as Doc Sheldon and whenever I publish something, that's the byline I use, although my legal name is Sheldon Campbell. On several of my profiles, even when the account is under my brand name, I also refer to my legal name. On my G+ profile, I link out to numerous other profiles that use one or the other, or both.

I was doing a vanity search this morning, to see how well Google was correlating the two identities, by searching for one identity or the other, both signed in and incognito. When I searched (logged in) on Chrome for my legal name, one of the first page results was a private G+ post I had sent to just one individual (who also happens to be in my circles) back in mid-2011. That private message did include... more »

There are so many exciting things happening on G+ and across the web right now and there are so many challenges demanding our time and attention that wasting time on rubbish should not feature on our horizon. It's a simple equation: Provide value and people will engage. Those who don't but still expect engagement by being extreme or provocative, or extremely provocative, well ... we know what you're doing. :)

And Then

Last month, my wife's uncle died in a tragic accident in LA when the bicycle he was using to get lunch was hit by a truck. At the memorial service his daughter relayed a very touching story. 

She said her dad (who was her best friend) called every day to talk. But instead of opening the call with the customary "How are you" or "What's going on", her dad always opened the conversation with "And then?" Her father viewed each conversation as a continuation of the last, and what pained her the most was that there were to be no more "and thens". I cried. 

Since then I've thought a lot about how similar this is to our life's endeavors. We pour our heart and soul into our work and it becomes something we love and cherish. But even the challenges we work on today will one day become "and thens" as wem... more »

Wow, Dan! You really outdid yourself on this one! More of a book than a post. We're going to have to go back through this to digest it all.

As either site owner or marketer, we don't have just one relationship with Google - some of them are mutually beneficial, while others are one-sided. Every time something changes, we need to re-evaluate each of those relationships from a cost vs. value standpoint.

Running another test. If you'd like to help out, that's great, but you can also feel free to ignore this :-)

http://moz.com/rand/enchiridion-hoypoloi/ - I'm trying to test indexing speed and whether a Google+ share can get something indexed all by itself (and how long that takes). Yesterday I tested on Twitter and the URL took a little over 12 hours to get indexed (and I can't be sure it came directly through Twitter). Will be interesting to see what happens with G+.

Please DON'T share this URL anywhere but on G+ - no URL shorteners, no other social media, no links, etc. Thank you!

"LSI keywords" doesn't translate to "long-tail keywords". LSI is "latent semantic indexing". There is also some doubt that LSI is even in use by Google. That said, any content that more clearly defines the context of the page and the meaning of information presented will help both the users and the search algorithms better understand what is being said.

Latest post Are These Anti-Google Refrains True? - Recent penalties have had folks up in arms (again) over Google's methods to control what it labels as "spammy". Having fueled a bit of the ranting myself, I thought I'd try offering some observations that might help keep things in perspective. To be fair, there are a lot of spammy practices in play, and most Read more The post Are These Anti-Google Refrains True? appeared first on The Meld. http://ow.ly/2FgXFk

One of the Scariest Google Penalties I've Seen

http://inbound.org/discussion/view/this-is-insane-period-matt-cutts-on-why-doc-sheldon-s-penalty-was-valid has all the details. What worries me is when Google's spending time trying to determine if a single post had manipulative intent or wasn't worthy of getting specific anchor text. It feels non-scalable and punitive - intended to scare rather than to improve search quality.

That said, the whole thread is worth a read as the commenters on Inbound bring up a number of good points around the issue.

This penalty didn't hurt me, because all my business comes from referrals and word of mouth. But it did affect a lot of others that were penalized unfairly, and that's who this issue should really be about.
This nonsense has to stop!

Fantastic synopsis, Josh - thanks for this!
I was hoping you'd better identify that MC video you referred to as a must-watch (with only 60 views)... I couldn't find one anywhere dealing with those issues. Could you drop a link here?
