It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321234795

What are the Most Effective Ways to Grow One's Influence/Followers on Google+?

I'm genuinely curious, both because it's a topic of deep interest for me personally, and because it's something I'm regularly asked about but don't have great suggestions other than the obvious "engage, share, comment, and drive traffic from other networks."

If you have great ideas, suggestions, posts, or examples, I'd love to see them (and I suspect lots of others folks here would, too).

p.s. As an example, I organically grow my Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and even Instagram audiences at clips of ~5-10% monthly without much work beyond regular sharing/engagement, but on G+, my following grew <10% in the last 12 months.

Google+ May Drive Fewer Visits, But They're Higher Quality

This report from Shareaholic came out in March (https://blog.shareaholic.com/social-media-traffic-engagement-03-2014/) but it's worth repeating. Here's their findings:

"Although Google+ and LinkedIn drive the fewest social referrals, they bring in some of the best visitors. Google+ users, on average, find themselves spending north of 3 minutes diving into things shared by connections in their circles. They also visit 2.45 pages during each visit, and bounce only 50.63% of the time. LinkedIn users generally spend 2 minutes and 13 seconds on each link they click, viewing 2.23 pages with each visit and bouncing 51.28% of the time. Although many sites see minimal traffic from both Google+ and LinkedIn, now may be the time to invest in building communities within those networks if engagement really matters to... more »

Many thanks to Eric for digging into the data and answering my question about image user by social authority:

How Does Image Use on Twitter Vary by Social Authority?

Yesterday in the HOA I did with +Rand Fishkin and +Neal Schaffer Rand asked me to share some data on how the use of images varies by Social Authority.  The chart below shows what percentage of tweets include images mapped vs. Social Authority.  For example, 10% of the tweets from users in the 40-49 authority range include an image.

Fascinating Stuff - this shows a strong correlation between image use and your authority level. Of course, the Followerwonk algo for calculating Social Authority does look at Retweets of your tweets, and from our Twitter study, we know that tweets with images in them are far more likely to get Retweeted.

Over time, will this lead to more Social Authority for you?  If you create compelling and thoughtful images and include them in your tweets, it certainly could.

However, bear in mind that this is not about jamming crap, irrelevant images into your tweets.  You need to learn how to create compelling, emotion-evoking stuff, and not every tweet should have an image.  However, those you are looking for high engagement on? Yes, these should have images in them.

Here is a link to the HOA that +Rand Fishkin, +Neal Schaffer, and I did together:

And, here is a link to the full study:

I've been promoting this tool in several slide decks on marketing for months now, foolishly not realizing that I was a beta user and that it wasn't live for everyone. Thankfully, today, it's launched! https://www.fullcontact.com/gmail/

Give it a spin - very, very cool and useful for anyone doing outreach and connecting with external folks over email.

The Mobius Arch in California

Near Death Valley National Park in the Alabama Hills of California, lies this remarkable natural arch. The photo below is (obviously) a long, nighttime exposure, and, when compared to what the human eye naturally sees (this: http://i.imgur.com/oHlIz8Y.jpg), it's pretty amazing what time and an open lens can do. Hopefully, I'll make it there someday.

Entrepreneurship & Depression

I recorded a podcast w/ +Jerry Colonna a few weeks back that's just been published. In it we talk openly about how anxiety, depression, and emotional challenges are often a big part of professional life (and one that very few people explore). Hopefully this can help others who face similar struggles.

10 SEO Blog Posts I'm Most Proud Of

Every since reading Rand Fishkin, Aaron Wall, Michael Gray and Rae Hoffman when I first entered SEO, I've considered myself blessed to publish even a single post on the subject that anyone might find useful.

It's not easy to talk about yourself (and I've certainly written more than a few turkeys) but looking back on my work the past few years there's a few posts which still stand the test of time and I believe are useful to new SEOs even now.

If I had to list my 10 favorite posts to recommend to SEOs today, the list would include:

One of the best analyses of Twitter I've seen. I particularly like that they broke out the impact of various factors based on relative authority levels.

LIVE: Twitter Engagement Unmasked - Study of 4 Million Tweets

See it NOW at http://stonet.co/TwitterStudySTC

Just Published: Our major study, months in the making, of over 4 million tweets.

We analyzed these tweets to see what drove retweets and favorites. Unlike previous Twitter studies, not only was our sample much larger, but we segmented the tweets in new ways, including by Followerwonk Social Authority rating (thanks +Moz!).

Here are just some of our findings (be sure to read the complete study to get the full picture!)

1. We all know that including media (images or video) in your posts is critical to engagement. This is true on every platform. How much? On Twitter, it increases your rate of Retweets of Favorites between 4 to 12 times!
 
2. Our data breaks the myth that Time of Day is an important factor on Twitter. There is no evidence at all to support that.
 
3. Hashtags and inclusion of links can be a small positive for most people, but not so much that you should go far out of your way to add them.
 
4. Because we used such a large sample size, one of the things we were able to do was break out each metric by social authority.  Whether or not some factors are positive for engagement varies with social authority.  For example, including hashtags appears to be a negative for high authority profiles!
 
We also evaluated many other factors in our study, so please check out the full post to see the rest!

The post includes a summary video and shareable/embeddable infographic!

Has SEO Changed Forever with an Algorithm that Replaces and Improves upon PageRank?

A mix of Kleinberg's Hubs and Authorities, a dash of Topic Sensitive PageRank, Elements that impact Sites in some instances rather that just pages, link analysis that looks at number of inward and external links, and representative queries for pages.  This seems like it was written by a search quality engineer and a member of Google's web ranking team. A peek at LinkedIn confirms that. Hmmm.

Excellent analysis of traffic sources to news sites from +Adam Sherk 

How much traffic are publishers getting from Google News these days?

I used +SimilarWeb to pull news search traffic data for 80 major news sites. I've ranked the sites by total news search visits YTD and the percentage of total search visits that the news search traffic represents.

+USA TODAY has the most news search traffic by far, with +Reuters +The New York Times and +Daily Mail also doing very well.

+The Huffington Post came in 13th. +Mashable was #51. ___Excellent analysis of traffic sources to news sites from +Adam Sherk

NGOs need to be free to invest in the kinds of systems and processes we’re always telling developing countries to put in place. And rich countries need to spend less time debating how to divide up the tiny sliver of our GDP we spend on development and more time figuring out how to leverage our vast economic and political power to let it happen on its own."

In marketing, I see the same problems - SEOs believing that because a particular tactic worked for one blog post or one section of one website they worked on, it can be scaled across an entire site - or CRO experts using pattern recognition to apply "fixes" that worked in another campaign on the current one without testing them, first (or prioritizing a test because it worked well in the past rather than understanding the underlying conversion challenges specific to this business/site/landing page).___

What are the Most Effective Ways to Grow One's Influence/Followers on Google+?

I'm genuinely curious, both because it's a topic of deep interest for me personally, and because it's something I'm regularly asked about but don't have great suggestions other than the obvious "engage, share, comment, and drive traffic from other networks."

If you have great ideas, suggestions, posts, or examples, I'd love to see them (and I suspect lots of others folks here would, too).

p.s. As an example, I organically grow my Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and even Instagram audiences at clips of ~5-10% monthly without much work beyond regular sharing/engagement, but on G+, my following grew <10% in the last 12 months.

Google+ May Drive Fewer Visits, But They're Higher Quality

This report from Shareaholic came out in March (https://blog.shareaholic.com/social-media-traffic-engagement-03-2014/) but it's worth repeating. Here's their findings:

"Although Google+ and LinkedIn drive the fewest social referrals, they bring in some of the best visitors. Google+ users, on average, find themselves spending north of 3 minutes diving into things shared by connections in their circles. They also visit 2.45 pages during each visit, and bounce only 50.63% of the time. LinkedIn users generally spend 2 minutes and 13 seconds on each link they click, viewing 2.23 pages with each visit and bouncing 51.28% of the time. Although many sites see minimal traffic from both Google+ and LinkedIn, now may be the time to invest in building communities within those networks if engagement really matters to... more »

The concepts of advanced on-page SEO can be dizzying: LDA, co-occurrence, and entity salience, to name a few. The question is "How do we incorporate these techniques into our content?" The truth is, you don't need to understand complex algorithms in order to create optimized content that ranks well.

• Keywords and relationships
• Location, Frequency and Distance of Keyword Phrases
• Links and Supplemental Content
• Entities and Schema

Absolutely Excellent Post on Advanced On-Page SEO

+Cyrus Shepard has written something every SEO should read.

More than Keywords: 7 Concepts of Advanced On-Page SEO
http://moz.com/blog/7-advanced-seo-concepts

A simple, illustrated look at concepts collected from research papers, patent filings, interviews and experiments as to the signals search engines may examine to determine what your webpage is about.

The challenge with SEO today is we focus on optimizing only what we can measure. This worked okay in 2005 when the focus centered on keywords and anchor text. Today, we simply lack the sophisticated computing power to match what search engines compute. However, basic principals guide text analysis. Understanding these principals can help us build better webpages and potentially help search engines to better understand our content.

Important Read to Understand G+'s Strategic Importance to Google

Thanks to +Mark Traphagen for the analysis here: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/article/20141018222225-13325642-google-has-over-2-billion-accounts-and-yes-they-all-count?trk=prof-post.

+Google+ now has more than 2 BILLION accounts !! In a little over 3 years, 1207 days to be precise, the number of personal profiles and pages has increased at a meteoric growth rate of approximately 1,658,625 new users/pages per day!

I've been calculating the growth rate of G+ for some time now at a website that I myself host http://plus.miernicki.com and if you would like to plug this data into another application, you can access the raw data (as JSON feeds) from http://plus.miernicki.com/plus and http://plus.miernicki.com/minus

To just say +Google+ is just about numbers would definitely be doing it a disservice. In the 3+ years I've been here, I've made tons of friends, shared countless stories, and photographs with a wide and varied group of people... and to that I say, "Here's to the next 2 Billion users!"

Anchor text links are still incredibly powerful for moving rankings up, but many of the techniques associated with getting them are high risk. In this week's WB Friday, I try to capture some tactics that enable descriptive, keyword-rich anchor text without the spam: http://bit.ly/anchortextrich

Most startups last ~20 months. Somehow, Moz has made it 10 years (my first posts on the old seomoz.org blog were in October of 2004). Thanks for the wonderful decade of support and growth!

We want to shout out a very big thank you to our community because we celebrate 10 years today! We have a video and two letters, from +Rand Fishkin and +Sarah Bird, you don't want to miss. ___Most startups last ~20 months.

Shirt Engine Optimization Needs Your Votes

I designed an SEO shirt for  and I need your help to make it a reality. Pitch in by creating a Betabrand account (it's, like, 4 form fields) and clicking the green vote button: http://bit.ly/seo-shirt

p.s. Tell me what you think of the shirt (and yes, I realize it's totally ridiculous - that was the idea) :-) Also - proceeds go to +GirlsWhoCode - hilarious shirt AND a good cause!

Brilliant work from +Mark Traphagen as usual, and a great example of the power of good timing combined with good content.

Nothing Like Owning Page One of Google...I Mean Almost ALL of Page 1

Logged out search results right now for "ello user guide." This is what can happen when you create a super-useful piece of content for something that people want to know more about right now.

Eight of the top ten results are either direct links to my Ello User Guide (http://stonet.co/ElloUserGuide) or people's posts linking to my guide.

Notice that #2 and #3 are indexed Twitter tweets. Pays to optimize your Open Graph tags for social sharing so that the default message that gets shared contains your target keyword!___Brilliant work from +Mark Traphagen as usual, and a great example of the power of good timing combined with good content.

An Adorable Robot that Teaches STEM Principles to Kids

Check out the video for Nubi: http://www.meetnubi.com/. Pretty amazing how they've created a programmable toy for young children. I hope stuff like this keeps coming out, and today's parents can help raise a generation of tech-literate kids.

The post itself is excellent (but remember English is Gianluca's 3rd language, behind Italian and Spanish!), plus the discussion has really heated up and become fascinating. Worth a read.

Stop the Myth of Google's "200 Ranking Factors"

Yes! A very much needed post from my friend +Gianluca Fiorelli on +Moz 

We so need to break the SEO drug habit of chasing after individual "factors."
