How Social Media Is Impacting Search With Rand Fishkin [@InboundNow #22]

How Social Media Is Impacting Search With Rand Fishkin [@InboundNow #22]: "Google +1 Button vs. Facebook 'Likes'

'You can do either/or, or both. But I think the thing about liking a page on Facebook is it does nothing for me.'

While clicking 'like' shows you're sharing good stuff with your friends, there's really no takeaway. With the Google +1 Button the takeaway is better, more useful search results.

Where to Start With Link Building

'I think some of the easiest ways right now are social ways.'

When just starting out, begin with the low-hanging fruit.

Connect with people on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Keep tabs on your keywords on those sites, and reply with a helpful comment.

Answer relevant questions on Q&A sites like Yahoo! Answers, Quora, Facebook Answers, LinkedIn Answers, Formspring, and ChaCha.

Another place to start? Leverage existing relationships. Offer to contribute testimonials for partners with a link back to your website. Give your customers easy ways to link back to you (e.g. website badges, social media buttons, etc)."

How Social Media Is Impacting Search With Rand Fishkin [@InboundNow #22]

How Social Media Is Impacting Search With Rand Fishkin [@InboundNow #22]: "'If lots of people start seeing those, lots of people are opting into that, we're going to see just a ton more search rankings influenced by what our friends are sharing and saying.'

Social media is impacting search in two ways: direct impact and latent social influence.

Facebook and Twitter both sell data to Google and Bing, and that data is then included in search algorithms. They use the number of times something has been shared on Facebook, who tweeted something, how many times something was tweeted, etc. to calculate content authority (How important is this article that was tweeted a ton of times?) and author authority (How important is this person who tweeted it?). This is the direct impact."

How to Significantly Improve Your Blog Alexa Rank

How to Significantly Improve Your Blog Alexa Rank: "Another reason why it is very important to get quality traffic to your blog is because Alexa doesn’t just count visits to your blog but also page views and how much time each visitors spend on your site; and the only way to make sure your visitors stay to spend more time is by providing quality content and getting quality traffic. That is why you will see a lot of people saying they get a lot of traffic but a low alexa rank; if you’re experiencing this try to observe where most of your visitors come from and how much time they spend on your blog, you will notice this also has a huge impact."

From zero visitors to 25000 in 15 months

From zero visitors to 25000 in 15 months: "Sarah is one of those amazing people who when they have an original great idea actually do the research , the hard graft and cajoling which make things happen.

Sarah created Birds on the Blog and invited several friends to join her in the enterprise. In the beginning friends pitched in with regular blogs on set days , blogging on topics from their own viewpoint.

As Birds became known for original and quality content , the sites reputation grew and more of Sarah’s friends joined in to contribute blogs .

The number of blogs published grew , slowly at first and then as the sites reputation grew , the number of contributors expanded rapidly"

Obama to Push Economic Development to Aid Democracy Movements - Businessweek: "$1 billion in loan guarantees through the Overseas Private Investment Corporation and cancellation of $1 billion in debt, about a third of what Egypt owes the U.S. An additional several billion dollars’ worth of financing for Egypt and Tunisia would come from multilateral development banks, the officials said, without providing details.

The new proposal is on top of the $2 billion that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in March pledged through OPIC for the region."

iTunes Pan-EU Label Relations Manager Position Vacancy on Spotify’s Territory | hunto.com - Funniest Videos

iTunes Pan-EU Label Relations Manager Position Vacancy on Spotify’s Territory | hunto.com - Funniest Videos: "Spotify and its world of music is currently ramping up in terms of user registrations. Being in the same paradigm, then these two streaming media sources will surely go head-to-head and in the end, it is all about the consumer benefits. That is what’s good when there is competition around.

iTunes being with the same party with iPhone can take it as their advantage but it sometimes hard to outrun who got their feet set on first."

How Spotify Works

How Spotify Works: "Spotify takes a new approach to music streaming on the desktop and mobile. Users can stream from a library of millions of songs, purchase tracks, and store playlists on Android or iPhone.

And with it's latest update allowing you to sync to iPods, Spotify could be a replacement for iTunes altogether."

IMF chief imagined a false rape allegation in April interview - CNN.com: "International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn discussed the possibility of a woman falsely claiming he attacked her.
In an interview April 28 with the French daily newspaper Liberation, Strauss-Kahn imagined 'a woman who would be raped in a parking lot and who would then be promised 500,000 or a million euros to invent such a story,' the paper reported in an article published Monday, two days after a hotel housekeeping employee said he sexually assaulted her."

4 Ways to Jazz Up Your LinkedIn Account | Social Media a la Carte

4 Ways to Jazz Up Your LinkedIn Account | Social Media a la Carte: "where you feel that you’re not being received well through social media networking sites, it’s probably a much easier fix that you’d think. Most of the time, if you feel you’re being ignored, it is most likely by accident, as in the person doesn’t know they are ignoring you.
I mean, put yourself in their position, do you keep up with every little request, update or message?

Typically, we’re too busy to keep up with it all so when you get a friend or connection request, you approve it, and go on with your day.

However, not engaging with others makes social media pointless. Your whole purpose of making accounts is to interact and gain valuable clients, potential clients and/or connections. You need to go past the general “hello” to make this work."

Facebook Vs. Groupon | Social Media & Internet Marketing: "Last week, Facebook announced that they’re getting into the discount business.It’s a face-off: Facebook vs. Groupon. Who’s going to come out on top?

In 2010, Forbes hailed Groupon as the fastest growing company ever after passing the billion dollar mark within their first two years. Their valuation pegged them as being worth $1.35 billion dollars when the company was just seventeen months old.

Google attempted to buy Groupon last December for a cool $6 billion dollars—and their offer was rebuffed. "

And to think we were "all making fun of Groupon!"

Rounder Corners, and Bicycle Tours

Courtesy of the innovator of Rounded Corner CSS, as I get back to the task of developing some websites that have been maturing in their latent seed form under the permafrost.

Riding a bike in the winter? Don't forget your Bar Mitts!


Authors Note two days ago I installed a new tube and a new tire on the bicycle that I rode on my 400 mile bicycle tour from NY to Montreal with American Youth Hostels.

Cycling is a great sport!

Interesting when we undertake the obligation to support our "code" even in a rapidly changing environment. With the 8th coming of our precious explorer here is what our very important developer of the Rounded Corner code has to say:

When I came back to it, much had changed. Too much...benefit ratio was too ridiculous for me to continue work on this...

Foolishly, I never wrote anything to this effect because I'd hoped to give it a new college try at some point.
Turns out I like riding my bicycle during my free time more than maintaining this project.

Drew Diller Our Leader in the rounded corner code

However Drew has drawn a new line in the sand of ethical round corner care when stating plainly:

This was a neat experiment, but note that I never took the version numbers out of "alpha" mode. If you feel that my having abandoned this project is in poor taste, let me know, as I have all the records of people who kindly made donations here, and I will refund your money.

Therefore the next time you get so caught up in the game as to wonder if you truly believe in the code, and yes I refer to open source code, just remember how we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us when we support the cause of one of early pioneers. Will there be even just one who will step forward and assume the challenge and take up the chalice to lead all us all in this bloodless revolution of the rounded corners?

"   The CSS3 border-radius property allows web developers to easily utilise rounder corners in their design elements, without the need for corner images or the use of multiple div tags, and is perhaps one of the most talked about aspects of CSS3.
Since first being announced in 2005 the boder-radius property has come to enjoy widespread browser support (although with some discrepancies) and, with relative ease of use, web developers have been quick to make the most of this emerging technology.                    

The code for this example is, in theory, quite simple:
#example1 {
border-radius: 15px;
The Syntax:
border-*-*-radius: <length> | <%> ] [ <length> | <%> ]?
border-top-left-radius: 10px 5px;
border-bottom-right-radius: 10% 5%;
border-top-right-radius: 10px;
Where two values are supplied these are used to define, in order, the horizontal and vertical radii of a quarter ellipse, which in turn determines the curvature of the corner of the outer border edge.
Where only one value is supplied, this is used to define both the horizontal and vertical radii equally.
The following diagram gives a few examples of how corners might appear given differing radii:

What you see? Is it what you asked for? When browsers change our vision, what do the Web Developers do?
