    New Study: How Does Google Judge Content Quality?

    Brands Rank Higher Without Fulfilling Many Criteria Required Of Other Websites According To Searchmetrics US Google Ranking Factors 2014 Study

    To achieve a high ranking position on Google, websites need to include high quality content that provides a great user experience according to new research announced today by Searchmetrics. The company found that high quality content covers a topic more comprehensively and is written in a way that is easier for the average person to read. As expected, these types of pages have better user signals, such as higher click-through rates and more time spent on site. They also have shorter page load times and well-organized internal links. However, well known brand websites still rank in top positions without having to fulfil many of the criteria Google seems to require from other websites.

  • The How Many Active Users on Social Networks Infographic

    Earlier this week, I questioned whether social media could replace my need to blog. In my article, I mentioned that Google+ and LinkedIn as social network platforms are able to provide near blog-like functions. Since that article posted, I've already heard comments from my Facebook and Twitter friends that no one uses Google+. I respectfully disagree with my friends. While people like to call Google+ a ghost town the numbers would indicate otherwise.

    Worldwide, Google+ has the third most active social media users with Facebook in first followed by YouTube. Surprising to Twitter fans (I'm one of them), Twitter has only half the active users (271 Million) as Google+ (540 Million). Where did I get these numbers? Over the past couple years I've googled them, but recently I came across Mike Allton's article, Social Media Active Users by Network, via The Social Media Hat.

  • How to Identify New Markets with Big Data

    Companies from the cosmetics industry to pet food are finding better ways to interact with customers, improve services and identify new markets through the capabilities they gain from using big data technology, like Google Compute Engine. Google Compute Engine allows companies to run extremely large workloads in the cloud, making big data more affordable and efficient to use than ever before. With this type of technology, companies are able to gather and store more data and, more importantly, they can take that data and perform dynamic queries and analyses that yield real-time results.

  • Off Topic: Google Nexus 5 APN Settings for Consumer Cellular (Update)

    What do we ask for? Consistency. What do we get from Consumer Cellular? More than a dozen ways to configure our Google Nexus 5 to their network. Unfortunately, many of those recommended settings don't work. Luckily, time is on our side. In the past 6 months Consumer Cellular and Nexus 5 owners have settled on APN settings that actually work properly on the Consumer Cellular network.

    After spending a decade with Verizon Wireless and the last four years as a Motorla Droid user, I decided to try something different. For the past six months, I've been an owner of the new Google Nexus 5 running on the no contract AT&T MVNO, Consumer Cellular. While there are plenty of reviews available about the Nexus 5 and Consumer Cellular, there isn't a whole lot of verified information how to setup your Nexus 5 on Consumer Cellular.

  • Online Brands Not Doing Enough to Guard Against a Google Penalty

    Online Brands Not Doing Enough to Guard Against a Google Penalty

    It’s easy to fall foul of Google’s rules says founder of digital marketing software and service company

    New York - January 30, 2014 - With Google cranking up its war on web spam in recent years, Searchmetrics, which operates an enterprise SEO platform, is warning that website owners – including many top online brands – may not be doing enough to guard against the risk of a Google penalty which could drastically reduce their organic search rankings, traffic and company value.

    The company’s software and analysis recently indicated that travel website Expedia.com may have been impacted by a Google penalty which saw its organic search visibility[1] drop by around 25%. Not only is this likely to have caused a drop in traffic and revenue, but it also affected the company stock price and value.

  • Quoting IT: Mike Elgan on Google Plus

    Quoting IT: Mike Elgan on Google Plus

    "As a result, it’s been bizarre to see the constant stream of falsehoods and confusion about Google+, which I know to be untrue. One writer after another used to say Google+ was a “ghost town,” and in 100% of those cases the author was not circling people or engaging. They confused their own lack of activity with a general lack of activity on the network."

  • Opinion: Technology is no longer a disruptive force

    Opinion: Technology is no longer a disruptive force

    When Google announced in 2012 that they were bringing Google Fiber to Kansas City, my father called me and said he was interested. As an information technologist, I was excited. I told the “old man” that Google Fiber was going to change everything. Last month, Google Fiber finally came to my parents' neighborhood, and I made the six-hour drive to visit the house I grew up in.

    After watching my parents interact with Google Fiber, I confirmed not only that Google Fiber was a game changer, but I also discovered something I hadn't expected: in a world where technology companies prefer to deliver shock and awe, Google made every effort to deliver no surprises to homeowners. On the surface, my parents weren't doing anything different than they had before Google brought their tech to town. This ultimate game changing disruptive technology could not be more non-disruptive to the families who are about to consume it.

  • Study: Top Brands automatically rank higher on Bing as well as Google

    Just a quarter of search results on the first page of Bing and Google are the same according to a comprehensive analysis of US search results in 2013

    New York - On Bing, as on Google, pages from top brand web sites seem to have an automatic advantage which means they rank in the top search results positions. And content quality, social media signals and backlinks are all associated with pages that rank higher in searches. While only about a quarter (24.7%) of web pages (URLs) that appear on the first page of Bing’s search engine results are also included on the first page of Google.

    The findings come from the SEO Ranking Factors – Rank Correlation 2013 for Bing USA study by digital marketing software and services company, Searchmetrics, which aims to identify the key factors that help web pages rank well in searches on Bing US and compares them with results from a similar earlier Searchmetrics study of Google US results. The new study is based on an analysis of search results from Bing.com for 10,000 popular keywords and 300,000 websites appearing in the top 30 search results and picks out the issues that correlate with a high ranking on Bing.
