SEO Training Dojo6,118This week our special guest will be +Bill Slawski who will be talking about 'Entity Audits'. Not sure what that is? Here's a teaser from Bill;"Before Google announced their Knowledge Base with their words about indexing things instead of strings, I was already working to make web pages "about" Something.We are seeing knowledge panels and rich snippets and sitelinks in search results. Special OneBoxes are also appearing more quickly.In response to those, we've been doing Entity audits for sites, where we look at entities that already appear on sites, and ones that maybe should appear but don't.We've been looking at what shows up when the name of a site, and the domain name for a site are searched for in terms of knowledge panels, related entities, sitelinks,  at the search engines. We're looking at what appears for these at places such as Wikipedia and Freebase an other knowledge bases.I have a couple of examples that I would like to share of how doing an entity audit can make a site richer, and potentially show up for more searches, including some changes on a site from 2005 that set me off on this path. :)"Friday SEO Chat - Entity Audits2014-08-15 19:00:0037

Mark's expertise in Authorship and understanding of search, coupled with his innate ability to educate and reduce complexities to simple "start here" ideas will make this particular episode a great learning experience for my students. Did I mention Mark also has experience with improv? You know he has a thing or two to teach my students about how to master the art of delivery!There are many components to public speaking, and it's usually the parts of delivery we tend to need to work on. Things like volume, appropriate movement and gestures, use of space, tone, and many others are the things many of us forget in our excitement anxiety to speak in front of a crowd. So how do we master these cues that seem like things you either have or you don't? Well, that's for Mark to answer ;)As always I'd also like to thank +John Ellis for running my cameras for me.Live Event URL:Glass in the Class: The Art of Delivery2014-06-25 22:30:0022

Ray Hiltz24,206How is Google Authorship relevant to your business?Google Authorship has been around since 2011 and while more and more people and brands have implemented “rel=author”, there is still a lot of confusion as to what exactly it accomplishes.Some think that it improves search results, others install it for the reported improvement in Click Through Rates (CTRs) by having your face appear on SERPs. Some because they hear it will improve their SERP ranking.To tell us the benefits of authorship and dispel some of the myths, the #GPlusLunchBunch  is very excited to have the authority on Authorship and all round nice guy +Mark Traphagen join us at our virtual lunch table.Mark is the Senior Director of Online Marketing at +Stone Temple Consulting.He is a prolific content creator and my chief source of information relating to online authority.He’s generous with his knowledge and time as is demonstrated by his many appearances on HOAs.If you have questions about authorship and want to know more, join us around the table. However, you’ll have to bring your own lunch (east coast), breakfast (west coast), dinner (UK).Recommended viewing: Mark’s SlideShare: Author Authority for Advanced Search Marketershttp://goo.gl/whr30CThis is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.

ISOOSI Research Engine3,466In 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 21:00:0067

ISOOSI Research Engine3,466Special Guest:  Danny SullivanOne of the things that either makes people love or hate SEO the most is how things constantly change.  To those who have been in the industry more than 15 years, even all the pace of change today doesn't seem as extreme in many ways as the days when each month there might be yet another upcoming search engine, or the closure of a search engine you'd used to optimise for and got good traffic from.  In this epic Roundtable discussion, industry leader +Danny Sullivan  joins the regular ISOOSI panel (+Ammon Johns, +Bill Slawski and +Carlos Fernandes)   to talk about how change should be dealt with, anticipated, and adapted to.We'll look at the truth in the old saying "The more things change, the more they stay the same", looking at some of the constant factors of SEO, not least that people themselves have not (yet) changed nearly so much.We'll talk about wether Google's dominance is now too great to challenge, or if a serious potential rival is already out there, be it Apple, or some less-expected challenger.We will look ahead at some of the changes we expect, and discuss ways to deal with such changes.  We'll talk about the things we don't expect to change much over the next few years, which may therefore be the most 'future-proof' areas to invest in for value.We'll also talk about changes to the industry of web marketing itself, drawing upon Danny's insights running SMX as a sign of what people are most (and least) interested in learning today.Change: The Constant of SEO2014-03-25 20:00:00103

Jason T. Wiser16,500Storytelling for Business Building with Chris BroganThere’s a lot of talk lately about storytelling in business and for good reason. Stories help people to understand and relate to your business journey. Where did you get the idea? What was the first thing you did when you realized that you had a good idea? what worked? what was your biggest mistake? This program is produced by http://ontracktips.com/storytelling-business-building-chris-brogan/It’s the answers to these questions that interviewers love to ask because viewers want to experience the journey of the successful business owner. They want to imagine themselves walking this path and living this dream. But aside from telling your rise to the top story, what other stories can we tell as business owners? what other stories do people want to hear?That’s why I have invited +Chris Brogan  to “Get on Track, Stay on Track” because Chris is passionate about small business and he understands the value of telling story for branding, for marketing, for business.Chris is the Author of "Trust Agents", "Google+ for Business" "The Impact Equation" "Social Media 101" and the soon to be released "The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth" http://jtw.bz/ChrisBr (affiliate link)Some of the questions I’m going to be asking Chris are:⇒ Other than your rise to the top story, what day to day stories can we tell in marketing?⇒ What are some of the best examples of companies that are using storytelling in business today?⇒ How much of your personal life do you share in your business story?If this interests you, start asking questions now AND Invite 2 friends!---------------------------------------------------------------------------------  Did you click "Yes" on the event invite?Catch past interviews  http://ontracktips.com and look for the big RED button.Upcoming Guests:⇒ Andrea Vahl "How to Find clients"⇒ Phyllis Khare "Time Management for Small Business Owners"Subscribe to "Get on Track, Stay on Track" on YouTube -http://jtw.bz/YouTubeOTT Listen to our Podcast in iTunes http://jtw.bz/iTunesOTT Join us on Twitter using the hashtag    #OnTrackTips   ========Storytelling for Business Building with Chris Brogan2014-03-06 19:00:00243

Jess + Scott + You278Last week we unleashed the power of the story.Next week we'll find out about a story in the correct place and time.This week, be it painful or blissful, stories are only effective when received.Believe it or not, your business tells a story, and we don’t mean to your customers. We mean to you. Are you listening? Do you even know what to listen for? To do what? MORE, right? Well, what does that actually mean?This week +Jessica Dewell and +Scott Scowcroft will explore what your business can tell you, and if you don’t like the storyline? Well, that’s part of this week’s show too.Who better to help us explore and dig into this topic than +Jason Frasca? He loves solving technical, operational and business inefficiencies using my unique ability to deconstruct complex problems, and leveraging technology to optimize business performance.Whether looking for new opportunities, ways to grow, building processes, acquiring expertise…first, check in with the business. It gladly gives us information, clues, and areas to explore. Yet, we overlook this attention our business shines on us.Receiving, or active listening, to the business will help identify low hanging fruit (easy to implement ideas), cost savings and time savings.Let’s give our business a bit of love back through active listening - and see how we can tune in and magnify the things that could hold us back or propel us forward by learning how to listen and receive important information.Spoiler Alert: Jason’s in depth knowledge of the how and why of Evernote  allows him to share how operational competency and narrative can touch at the deepest level to create great stories.This is one episode of the JSY! show you’ll not want to miss.YOU (the Y in JSY) matter - come and explore this topic with us. Start the conversation now.(We are a LATE show. Responding Yes or Maybe will set a reminder so you can catch the replay if it isn't a time you can join us live.)*Hashtag: #JSY *Like the topic?

martin shervington670,845Who 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 20:00:0077

ISOOSI Research Engine3,466+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.

He's pretty sure Stone Temple CEO Eric Enge added "senior" to Mark's title as a veiled reference to his age. He lives in Durham NC, which he regards as Portland OR without a web parody (yet).Mark has been active on Google+ since its third day and has developed a reputation as an expert on using Google+ for business and personal branding, as well as on Google Authorship.When he's not singlehandedly trying to eliminate Google+'s "ghost town" image by posting there at least once every 10 minutes, you'll find Mark playing mandolin in a New Orleans-style second line band called The Bulltowns Strutters, and competing in storyslam events.This week's show is sponsored by:+CT Social  is an interactive digital agency based in Central Florida. We provide web design and optimization, social media management and consulting, mobile apps (Apple / Android / Windows 8), and graphic design for web promotions.

Dr. John Cassone12,100Dr. John's Selectgood content and engagementThese are people I follow, engage with, and suggest for my new followers who want quality people in their stream. This circle changes each time I share it based on how people are engaging and sharing content.This is not a megacircle.People are only added based on good content or my experience engaging with them.Best way to sort and manage your stream:1. add new circle2. follow it in your stream separately 3. engage with those that interest you (good content/interaction)4. cherry pick those you like and make your own circles5. let go of the rest (or put them in a circle that's dialed down on your stream)If you add too many people too often then you will not build meaningful connections which is the point here.Circle Management Basics:1. Circles control who you follow:►   I might feel like reading the news so I have a news channel circle. I don't build relationships with these pages but follow them and share content when interesting. This way I can completely control my stream based on my mood.2. Circles control who your share to: ►   Share to your interests: I like martial arts but most of my followers do not. By collecting a circle of others that like martial arts I can share specifically to those interested in this topic and not bore anyone.►  I have also collected an "inner circle" of g-peeps that I have gotten to know and share more person pics and info with.3. Control your stream flow:►   When you click on a specific circle in your stream you can adjust how much the posts from that circle appear in your "everything" stream. ►   Organize people based on flow: I have three main circles called 1, 2, and 3. I have the amount of flow dialed in priority (circle 1 is high, 2 is medium, and 3 is low). I move people between circles based on the progression of our relationship. ►   Notify circle: I have another circle with people that I don't want to miss a single post from. This circle is set to notify me whenever someone from it posts. This is a great way to focus on building a relationship with specific people.Happy Plussing :)2014-09-07 19:22:331921015

Dr. John Cassone11,938Dr. John's August Selectgood content and engagementThese are people I follow, engage with, and suggest for my new followers who want quality people in their stream. I've also included some of my new engagers.This is not a megacircle. People are only added based on good content or my experience engaging with them.Best way to sort and manage your stream:1. add new circle2. follow it in your stream separately 3. engage with those that interest you (good content/interaction)4. cherry pick those you like and make your own circles5. let go of the rest (or put them in a circle that's dialed down on your stream)If you add too many people too often then you will not build meaningful connections which is the point here.Circle Management Basics:1. Circles control who you follow:> I might feel like reading the news so I have a news channel circle. I don't build relationships with these pages but follow them and share content when interesting. This way I can completely control my stream based on my mood.2. Circles control who your share to: > Share to your interests: I like martial arts but most of my followers do not. By collecting a circle of others that like martial arts I can share specifically to those interested in this topic and not bore anyone.> I have also collected an "inner circle" of g-peeps that I have gotten to know and share more person pics and info with.3. Control your stream flow:> When you click on a specific circle in your stream you can adjust how much the posts from that circle appear in your "everything" stream. > Organize people based on flow: I have three main circles called 1, 2, and 3. I have the amount of flow dialed in priority (circle 1 is high, 2 is medium, and 3 is low). I move people between circles based on the progression of our relationship. > Notify circle: I have another circle with people that I don't want to miss a single post from. This circle is set to notify me whenever someone from it posts. This is a great way to focus on building a relationship with specific people.Happy Plussing :)2014-08-07 14:37:331779413

Education Is What People Do to You. Learning is What You Do To Yourself

Quote from the +TED Talk by +Joichi Ito on "Becoming a Nowist" at http://stonet.co/1Dp2QSI

This quotation really struck me, as I believe that self-education (what Ito simply calls "learning") is a key hallmark of a thought leader. In his talk, Ito shares how with the advent of the Internet there is no longer any excuse for waiting for "education" in order to be an innovator.

Do Influencers Really Cause Viral Spread?

+AJ Kohn shares an interesting study that claims to demonstrate that major influencers aren't really as powerful in getting something spread widely on the web as most people assume.

Far more important, according to the study, is the number of people resharing the content. As AJ comments, this reinforces that you may be better off building a large and diverse audience for you or your brand than investing the same time in courting a few big influencers.

Download a PDF of the study at http://bit.ly/XNsj7q

I don't think this means that influencers have no value. It's likely that they can open doors in exposing you to new audiences, and help make valuable connections. But they may not be the magic bullet that makes content go viral.

Do Influencers Really Matter?

http://bit.ly/XNsj7q

Specifically, the in-depth comparison between diffusions represented by different peaks suggests that more attention from the crowd at early stage of the propagation produces large-scale coverage, while the dominant participation of opinion leaders at the early stage just leads to popularity of small scope. 

Our results quantificationally challenge the conventional hypothesis of influentials. And the implications of these novel findings for marketing practice and influence maximization in social networks are also discussed.

This is an interesting piece of research that instinctually makes some sense to me. Larger trends aren't birthed by promotion by a handful of influencers but by having a larger set of individuals embrace it in a short amount of time. 

The value of paid social and saturation marketing can't be dismissed when it comes to spawning online trends.

New Kind of Search Rich Snippet: Structured Snippets

Thanks to +Joshua Berg for alerting us to this. I've seen examples of this in search going back at least a month, but today Google's +Pierre Far confirmed that Google is indeed sometimes showing a rich snippet result triggered by site content without the need for schema markup.

The example I've been seeing and that is shown below is Google displaying a few rows of a table that is displayed on the linked page. While not immediately useful (they never show the whole table) the snippet does alert the searcher that there is potentially useful structured data on the linked page.

Structured Snippets Now Showing in Google Search

Just announced, this is a new kind of snippet appearing in Google search which is not powered by structured data, but rather it is tabular data extracted by Google algorithms. A good example of semantic search & the knowledge base working to understand queries & provide the most relevant data.


As Google's +Pierre Far announced today... 

A new kind of snippet a few of you noticed recently, called structured snippets. As the post says, Structured Snippets is a new feature that incorporates facts into individual result snippets in Web Search.

It's not structured data (schema.org) driven! Instead, it's powered by algos that try to find interesting tables within webpages to extract the key facts related to the topic of the page. This deeper understanding of the contents, plus some quality checks, gives us a new kind of snippet.  


Introducing Structured Snippets, now a part of Google Web Search  goo.gl/toCvEP



#GoogleUpdate   #GoogleSearchUpdate   #SEO  ___New Kind of Search Rich Snippet: Structured Snippets

Thanks to +Joshua Berg for alerting us to this. I've seen examples of this in search going back at least a month, but today Google's +Pierre Far confirmed that Google is indeed sometimes showing a rich snippet result triggered by site content without the need for schema markup.

The example I've been seeing and that is shown below is Google displaying a few rows of a table that is displayed on the linked page. While not immediately useful (they never show the whole table) the snippet does alert the searcher that there is potentially useful structured data on the linked page.

Marketing in the New Trust Economy

In this +Haiku Deck slide deck I outline how we are shifting from a "finite games" (James P Carse http://goo.gl/sHdxzb) win-lose economy to an "infinite games" Trust Economy. View the deck at ➤➤ http://stonet.co/1mCauEk

What I mean here is that there is a growing exchange of ideas, goods, and services that flows to the benefit of many (rather than a few) and employs Trust and Reputation as coins of the realm.

If Your SEO Firm Acts Like SEO Works in a Vacuum Might Be Time to Find a New One!

The next in our series of Warning Signs of a Bad SEO Firm by +Eric Enge 

By the way...have you circled +Stone Temple Consulting yet? Be sure you have to keep up with the best, most reliable info on digital marketing.

Warning Signs of a Bad SEO Firm #4: They Treat SEO Like It Works In a Vacuum

+Eric Enge says:

SEO has a strong marketing component to it. As a result, it interacts with other disciplines, such as PR, web site design, and usability. These days you should really think about design and usability as SEO factors. Google’s Panda algorithm started to bring these types of factors into play in February of 2011, but there is increasing evidence that Google is analyzing content quality in other ways.

PR, traditional marketing, and your social media efforts should also play big roles in helping generate links to the site, so it’s important to consider those efforts as part of the overall SEO picture, too. Any content marketing efforts proposed by an SEO firm should be tightly integrated with all of these other teams. And, of course, on-site changes require implementation, which means that the SEO efforts should coordinate with the dev team.

Google Plus View Counts Drop Again After Big Jump Up

Last week I reported that many Google+ users saw a huge leap upward in their view counts. After some analysis with the help of +CircleCount it appeared that the big jump occurred mostly for user who had been active on Google+ prior to October 2012, which was the earliest date to which view counts (previously) had measured. 

It was our conclusion at the time that it was likely that Google+ had finally added in some amount of the views that happened before October 2012.

However I got an alert from +martin shervington this morning that his view count had dropped back down this past weekend. I checked mine, and sure enough, saw a similar drop. (See graphic below)

The Death of the Keyword

That may be a slight overstatement, but not by much, according to this in-depth analysis of the latest +Searchmetrics search ranking factors study by +Marcus Tober for +Moz.

So, don't build landing pages for single keywords. And don't build landing pages for search engines, either. Focus on topics related to your website/content/niche/product and try to write the best content for these topics and subtopics. Create landing pages dealing with several, interdependent aspects of main topics and write comprehensive texts using semantically closely related terms. This is how you can optimize the user experience as well as your rankings – for more than even the focus keyword – at the same time!

☞ I experienced how the shape of the glass shapes the experience of the wine.
☞ I took in how to bring the senses of smell and sight as well as taste into the experience.

After all those months, the graphic below sums up everything I've retained.

I originally projected I would reach 100,000 followers by US Thanksgiving, but at current pace it looks like it might happen sometime in October.

+Denis Labelle was one of the first people I connected with back in the Buzz days, and that carried over into Google+. This post explains a little more the dedication he put into making social media work for him, and why he's one of the most loved and recognizable names on Google+ today.

And he does all this in a second language folks!

#plusonly  

Everything I've learned online, I've learned it with Google(+) 
"I’m a big fan of Google. However, its not about Google, it’s about what people have done with Google. It’s about all the people using Google to become leaders in their own lives and their own communities. They have achieved all these things because of their own ingenuity and talent. But now they are part of our story - and we are part of theirs. And that’s what makes it worth it." +Patrick Pichette, CFO, Google 

I am a firm believer that it's not about who you circle, neither who circles you but who finds you and how you treat them . It is not about "working the Google+", it's about working for the Google+ (as a community).  

To make a long story short, everything started with Google Buzz. At that time, I was using Google and Chrome and had no interest in anything else as a user... of a computer. Then one day, my twin brother +Serge Labelle (who has been using social networks for almost 10 years...!), convinced me: "It's not about technology, it's about people sharing common interests." Ok... 

When I started on GBuzz, e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g was a challenge for me: dealing in a second language, typing, writing, posting, etc. name it. But mostly, I knew no one... However, that last challenge was the one I was ready to face, "people" being my no.1 passion in life. 

I invested tons of hours reading, learning from others, trying to do my best (did lots of mistakes), etc. but I am here today using and enjoying tremendously "Google" and the community here on Google+, personally and professionally. 

And that's what makes it worth it. Thanks +Google & +Google+

If I had to name just one thing that's better about long form conversations on Google+ over Facebook, it would be this:

After a brief time, Facebook fails to notify me of new comments in a thread. Time and again I've stumbled upon an old conversation where someone made a reply to me, then probably thought I was rude because I never replied back. Often the conversation has gone on in great depth, and I never knew because Facebook stopped notifying me.

On Google+, I always get a notification of a new comment, so I never miss the ongoing conversation. Heck, I quite regularly get notifications of comments on conversations I was in two or three years ago, because people find them in search!

WARNING: Google's New Sitelink Search Box Could Steal Your Branded Traffic

Good spot from +AJ Kohn. Google is now auto-implementing for many brand sites a feature that puts a search box right in the results for the brand. Sounds great, right?

Being Proactive in Welcoming Women in Your Field

A thought-provoking (and to some, judging by the comments, controversial) article by +Erica McGillivray of +Moz. 

Why am I posting this here? Because I believe that if you gain the privilege of being seen as a "thought leader" in any space, and especially if you're a male, you have a responsibility to be thinking about what you do to foster equality of opportunity in your field.

(BTW, I have immense respect for Erica personally. She was an incredible mentor and guide for me as I launched as a first-time MozCon speaker this past July, the most thrilling and scary event of my professional career!)

Signs of a Bad SEO Firm #3: Promises Just Too Good to Be True

From +Eric Enge's "12 Warning Signs of a Bad SEO Firm" article at +Forbes:

This is one of the hardest pitches to resist, but if an SEO firm is promising you a No. 1 ranking on a competitive term, you should know that they are probably lying. SEO is part art, and part science, but no one can know what is required to rank No. 1 for a specific term. Google’s algorithms are too obscure for anyone to make that specific a guarantee.

Most SEO firms are reputable and trying their best to do a great job for their clients. But sadly there are unscrupulous or incompetent SEOs and agencies that can drain your budget with poor (or even dangerous) results.

Thought Leadership & Personal Branding Community Post of the Day

Each day we'll be highlighting a post from our new community from the day before that set off a particularly interesting discussion.

Our first is from +Ammon Johns who led us in a thought exercise to challenge our assumptions about what "thought leadership" is. Can we find a better way of thinking about the topic than the mainstream impressions it brings up?

Great contributions from Peter Hatherley (sorry, Peter, G+ won't link you) +Yasine Aguig +Eric Enge +Iblis Bane +Pepper Oldziey and +David Kutcher 

Some leading thoughts on Thought Leadership

There's no doubt in my mind that "Thought Leader" is a loaded term, ill-defined, contentious, and (possibly for those very reasons) fascinating.  Let's face it there are multiple meanings and connotations for the terms 'leading' and 'leader'.

We could mean Leader as in first or foremost.  The person at the front, as in 'the leading edge'.  But we could also, just as correctly mean leader as in one who asks leading questions, who leads us to think.  That second meaning is certainly the one I favour, and the one meant more in my opening line of 'leading thoughts'.

One also needs context to the role of a leader.  Not every leader has to be leading an exploratory expedition into unknown territory.  The supply convoy may have a leader of the team too.  Nor is every leader some dictatorial director, calling the shots.  Some leaders are more like facilitators and coordinators, simply collating everyone else's data and effectively being the 'chair' of a meeting of peers/equals.

We know from the community description that +Mark Traphagen favours that second approach - the leader of a team who serves as its leader.

I've been called a great many things over the years of my career.  Some of them can be repeated in polite company.  Being called a ''Thought Leader' was one that gave me pause for thought.  What does it mean?  Do I deserve such a title, or do I treat it like "Expert" and view it as something I don't call myself, and view as a subjective title (something that needs the added "compared to....")?  Should I be flattered, or worry about what responsibilities that title may carry?

However, I know for certain that a great many people across a great many years have told me that I caused them to change their thinking, to think differently about things.  I lead them to fresh thinking.  If that isn't a thought leader, then what is?

Personally, I'm still more comfortable being termed a 'mentor'.  Perhaps because it is simply a more clearly defined word and concept.  Others have freely and generously cited me as a mentor.  I'm okay with that.

I think I'm okay with my concept of a 'Thought Leader' too.  I've heard the term used in context enough to understand how they meant it, and accept it.  So, is it the context that is the problem for us all?

Many people inspire us to think, (and many do so without even being aware of it).  Does that make them all thought leaders?  Or is a 'thought leader' someone who does it consistently and mindfully?

I leave those questions entirely open to discussion.  Treat them as thoughts without an answer that may lead you to your own thinking, your own conclusions.

But I end this particular post with a leading thought of a different style:  Do we really need a singular definition?  Isn't a 'thought leader' supposed to be somewhat subjective?  Is not the point that someone who makes you think, on a consistent basis, is a thought leader to you whether or not others agree with you?

Does a thought leader need to be universally acclaimed, or merely personally?

Over to you.___Thought Leadership & Personal Branding Community Post of the Day

A moving, personal, and instructive personal tale from +Rand Fishkin

Rand Fishkin on His Year of Depression & the Road Out

Whenever I want to point someone to an example of someone who takes "transparency" and "authenticity" out of the buzzword category and into reality, I invariably point them to former +Moz CEO +Rand Fishkin.

Most people who have heard of Rand think of him as one of the most successful and beloved people in digital marketing. They would probably be shocked to learn that he's struggled with serious, health-debilitating depression caused by beating himself up over a series of business failures at Moz.

Depression is why, in the last 18 months, I blogged the least I have since starting my career. It’s almost certainly part of why my engagement in all sorts of things has suffered. It’s why I could hardly bear to be away from Geraldine for more than a day or two at at time. And, it’s a big part of why I stepped down as Moz’s CEO.

That depression, I believe, stems from shame. I was and remain, ashamed of myself due to a series of wholly avoidable missteps I made at Moz. Brad likes to say that every company he and the Foundry team have ever invested in go through tough times and most have near-death experiences before they emerge into their mature form. Even with my darkest lenses on, I can’t say that Moz was ever “near-death” in the past couple years. But I can say that we – that I – made dumb move after dumb move, and when those moves revealed themselves to be dumb, I pushed us to double-down on them, compounding our problems. By sharing that story I hope to, as I’ve done in posts like this before, offload my pain through transparency and, hopefully, help save a few of you reading this post from making the same mistakes.

Rand's post is a poignant and instructive reminder that you can never be a real leader unless you are willing to face, call out, and deal realistically with your own demons.

This is a long read but well worth every minute you'll spend on it.___A moving, personal, and instructive personal tale from +Rand Fishkin

It's all fun and games until the sea lion shows up...

Isn't this exactly like so many online conversations? It's easy to complain or pontificate about something outside our own spheres of experience...until someone from that sphere shows up in the conversation.

At that moment we have a choice: try to make them go away (happens too often), or listen and learn.

UPDATE: Google Did NOT Remove Google+ from Search Brand Boxes

Turns out +Search Engine Land was able to confirm from Google that this was a bug and will be fixed.

#plusonly  

UPDATE: Turns out it was just a bug, and the Google+ elements will return to Knowledge Panel brand boxes. Story at  http://stonet.co/1qhXJto

BREAKING: Google Removes Google+ Brand Box from Logged Out Search

Thanks to +Matt Ridout for alerting me to this. It appears that Google is no longer showing the Google+ Knowledge Panel brand box in the right panel for branded searches of companies that have a verified and active Google+ page.

They still show in personalized (logged in) search (whether or not you have the brand circled - but only if the brand has been recently active on Google+).

What Does This Mean?
As sure as the sun will rise in the morning, this news will feed the usual "Google is shutting down Google+" rumor mill. I don't think that's at all what it indicates, any more than all the other "signs" from the past.

What I do think we are seeing is something I predicted back when +Vic Gundotra left in the spring (see http://stonet.co/gplusnotdead), that Google+ wasn't going away, but that we would see Google repositioning it in the coming year.

For its first three years Google+ was very much "in your face" for anyone approaching Google from almost any angle. You had to get a Google+ account to do anything useful in Google. Author profile photos in your search results. YouTube comments becoming Google+ posts. Google+ brand boxes in search. etc. etc.

Now as Google+ has matured and has accomplished what I think it was supposed to do for Google (establishing one Google login/identity across all Google services, for one thing), I think we are beginning to see a repositioning of Google+ where it will move more into the background. It will still be developed, still have new features, and the social network will continue on. It will still be the identity and login service for Google products. But it is going to be less and less in your face.

It's Personal Now
But not everywhere. The one place where we are seeing Google+ actually being stepped up and made more visible is in personalized (logged in) search. Even as Authorship was pulled out of regular search, we saw a stepping up of Authorship-style rich snippets and elevated results for both people and brands in personalized search (see http://stonet.co/1rWf3vm). 

This further change to move Google+ brand box results to personalized search only seems to be another move in that direction. Google is realizing that social results have the most value when they are truly social: when they are for people and brands you have intentionally circled on Google's social network.___UPDATE: Google Did NOT Remove Google+ from Search Brand Boxes

The Power of the Personal in Online Marketing

The post linked below is my personal manifesto, my declaration of war (so to speak) for the next segment of my career.

After 2+ years of being known as "the Google Authorship" guy, that product came suddenly to an end. I got dozens of messages, some sympathetic and some snarky, wondering if my career was at an end because the thing I was most known for was no more.

I did a lot of hard thinking and reflection, and had some serious talks with good friends and mentors like +Eric Enge. 

Out of that has come a fresh direction that I am honestly more excited about than I ever was about Google Authorship. This is what we should have been excited about most when we were examining and talking about GA.

Rand Fishkin on His Year of Depression & the Road Out

Whenever I want to point someone to an example of someone who takes "transparency" and "authenticity" out of the buzzword category and into reality, I invariably point them to former +Moz CEO +Rand Fishkin.

Most people who have heard of Rand think of him as one of the most successful and beloved people in digital marketing. They would probably be shocked to learn that he's struggled with serious, health-debilitating depression caused by beating himself up over a series of business failures at Moz.

Depression is why, in the last 18 months, I blogged the least I have since starting my career. It’s almost certainly part of why my engagement in all sorts of things has suffered. It’s why I could hardly bear to be away from Geraldine for more than a day or two at at time. And, it’s a big part of why I stepped down as Moz’s CEO.

That depression, I believe, stems from shame. I was and remain, ashamed of myself due to a series of wholly avoidable missteps I made at Moz. Brad likes to say that every company he and the Foundry team have ever invested in go through tough times and most have near-death experiences before they emerge into their mature form. Even with my darkest lenses on, I can’t say that Moz was ever “near-death” in the past couple years. But I can say that we – that I – made dumb move after dumb move, and when those moves revealed themselves to be dumb, I pushed us to double-down on them, compounding our problems. By sharing that story I hope to, as I’ve done in posts like this before, offload my pain through transparency and, hopefully, help save a few of you reading this post from making the same mistakes.

Rand's post is a poignant and instructive reminder that you can never be a real leader unless you are willing to face, call out, and deal realistically with your own demons.

This is a long read but well worth every minute you'll spend on it.___

San Francisco Restaurant Turns the Tables on Yelp

The owner of a San Francisco restaurant is fed up with what he alleges are mafia-style extortion tactics by Yelp. He's decided to fight back by incentivizing patrons to leave as many one-star reviews as possible, with the aspiration of becoming the worst-reviewed restaurant in SF. 

Sounds like the move may be paying off for him in free publicity, although Yelp is threatening to take action.

You must click through and read the hilarious reviews, which read like many of the best parody Amazon book reviews.

The Power of the Personal

Inspired by the amazing response to this community yesterday and today, I've published my first blog post in what I hope to be a series on why understanding the power of the personal is crucial to communicating your message effectively online.

I broke this news early this morning (thanks to a tip from +Matt Ridout) that Google is no longer showing knowledge panel brand boxes generated solely by Google+ brand page info in logged-out search. They still show in personalized search.

Hangouts On Air Now Open to Non-Google+ Users

+Ronnie Bincer the Hangout Helper with the news and details.

Hangouts on Air participants can be Non-Google+ users
Since Google's Hangouts on Air (HOA) first started, the filmstrip has been limited to only Google+ Account holders... things have shifted. Now even non-G+ Account holders can be participants inside the video area of a HOA (aka filmstrip).

Why do we care? Because now we can more easily get people into our HOA Broadcasts even if they don't want to make a Google+ account for themselves... yet.

You'll still need to have a Google Account at a minimum to play...
"Google Account" stuff: https://accounts.google.com/

But... A Google+ account is no longer required to join or create multi person video calls or to join into a HOA started by someone with a Google+ account.

Here is the Google Help doc that covers this new development:
https://support.google.com/hangouts/answer/3110347

There is lots of info to weed through there so I've done some research and verification for you and have come up with the following:

Starting a HOA still requires a Google+ Account, but Joining into a HOA should work with just a Google Account.

Minimal Hangout Apps for non-G+ account holders.
The only hangout apps that will work for non-G+ users are screenshare and group chat - all other apps are disabled.

Special considerations for invites into the filmstrip.
The non-G+ account holder must be invited into a Hangout Video Call (HVC) or HOA via the invite dialog first before they can join with a link to the HVC or HOA.

We'll be discussing much more about this new development in the paid membership community called Hangout Mastery - join us there to keep up with the constant changes via www.bit.ly/HangoutMastery

I think Google tested this out a bit with the Google Apps folks recently, but from what I understand this is the first time non-G+ Account holders have been allowed inside a HOA Broadcast. Good news. Hopefully once they taste and see that it is good... they'll want to create a Google+ account so they can use all the functions offered.

Google Removes Google+ from Non-Personalized Knowledge Graph Results

Read my post below for the details and what I think this means.

BREAKING: Google Removes Google+ Brand Box from Logged Out Search

Thanks to +Matt Ridout for alerting me to this. It appears that Google is no longer showing the Google+ Knowledge Panel brand box in the right panel for branded searches of companies that have a verified and active Google+ page.

They still show in personalized (logged in) search (whether or not you have the brand circled - but only if the brand has been recently active on Google+).

Update: +Bernd Rubel noticed that for brands that have a verified Google+ page and get a Knowledge Panel brand box in search, the logo in the box is from their G+ page and links to it if clicked on. To see this, try a search for Audi not logged in to your Google+ account.

What Does This Mean?
As sure as the sun will rise in the morning, this news will feed the usual "Google is shutting down Google+" rumor mill. I don't think that's at all what it indicates, any more than all the other "signs" from the past.

What I do think we are seeing is something I predicted back when +Vic Gundotra left in the spring (see http://stonet.co/gplusnotdead), that Google+ wasn't going away, but that we would see Google repositioning it in the coming year.

For its first three years Google+ was very much "in your face" for anyone approaching Google from almost any angle. You had to get a Google+ account to do anything useful in Google. Author profile photos in your search results. YouTube comments becoming Google+ posts. Google+ brand boxes in search. etc. etc.

Now as Google+ has matured and has accomplished what I think it was supposed to do for Google (establishing one Google login/identity across all Google services, for one thing), I think we are beginning to see a repositioning of Google+ where it will move more into the background. It will still be developed, still have new features, and the social network will continue on. It will still be the identity and login service for Google products. But it is going to be less and less in your face.

It's Personal Now
But not everywhere. The one place where we are seeing Google+ actually being stepped up and made more visible is in personalized (logged in) search. Even as Authorship was pulled out of regular search, we saw a stepping up of Authorship-style rich snippets and elevated results for both people and brands in personalized search (see http://stonet.co/1rWf3vm). 

This further change to move Google+ brand box results to personalized search only seems to be another move in that direction. Google is realizing that social results have the most value when they are truly social: when they are for people and brands you have intentionally circled on Google's social network.___UPDATE: Turns out it was just a bug, and the Google+ elements will return to Knowledge Panel brand boxes.
