Thoughts on Social Media 2015

“Social media” is a bit of a misnomer, as the term is used to describe many different and diverse communities online.  An essential concept that gets lost is the fact that all these different online communities (social media platforms) have very different cultures.  The best way to grok each individual culture is to immerse oneself in a given community for a significant length of time.

The challenge in utilizing social media is understanding how to adapt the message and become part of the native conversation.  Being tone deaf to the unique social media culture in question can have sharply negative results.  Interactions on Facebook are very different from sending out a hashtag laden tweet.  Posting an Instagram photo with relevant hashtags takes a wholly different attitude than uploading a set of images into a Pinterest account. … Read the rest

Yom HaShoah Latvian Holocaust Susan B Magee

“What happened at Rumbula was unimaginable…beyond words.  Aron lost his mother there, but he survived, and over six decades of painting, Aron worked out the evil he experienced on canvas and turned it into truth and beauty.  More intimately, his paintings in the book reveal his remarkable journey of personal alchemy as he overcame evil and reclaimed his light. His life is a testament to the power of the human spirit to heal.  On this Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah), let us remember those who were lost, celebrate those who survived and commit to living in peace with ourselves and each other.  Blessings to all.”

Ways to Speed up WordPress JavaScript without Coding

Hey Everyone!

As WordPress gets more sophisticated and WordPress Themes become more interesting, powerful and complex, the code itself begins to bog down.  One of the better ways to troubleshoot this issues is by using Google Developers PageSpeed Insights.

I just had to do some research on a photographer’s WordPress site to attempt to fix some of these problems. Here are some links to plugins that will help in this process.

Asynchronous Javascript

Brands Ignoring Local Search Are ‘Kicking Away’ the Opportunity Google Is Giving Them

Let’s talk latest change to Google’s algorithm. What types of business succeeded (with it); what types of data did it favor; what do these changes mean for the search industry?
It actually wasn’t as substantial an update as everybody reported, merely a continuation and amplification of the direction Google has been going in for the last three or four years. Pigeon largely benefited well-branded, well-structured websites. If you have a very strong brand, good brand recognition, and lots of brand name searches — you benefited.

In general, the update favored brands and hurt small businesses. That seems to be the initial data. We haven’t seen any substantial changes, although I do think there have been multiple algorithm updates since then that have flown under the radar where the quality of results have gotten better.… Read the rest

Conversation: Where’s Paid Search Going In 2014? #smx #33A
http://www.bruceclay.com/blog/paid-search-trends-2014/

Gagan: It’s the basics. Have good creative. Write better creative, and leverage technology resources to do so if you can’t on your own. Differentiate your brand.

Frank: Data and data quality. Look outside your budget, your existing PPC capabilities and make sure you’re optimizing the quality of your data you’re creating on your site.
