Find Potential Link Partners Using SimilarWeb's Referral Reports

Links from relevant 3rd party sites are always nice, but it's difficult/impossible to evaluate how each may or may not be leading to additional visibility in organic search. 

Relevance + Qualified Traffic = Win

The best link partners in my opinion are those that are relevant and send qualified traffic directly your site. One report I thoroughly enjoy in +SimilarWeb Pro is Referrals which shows which 3rd party websites and blogs are actually sending traffic to your top business and SEO competitors. 

Click-through below for specifics on how to utilize this actionable report to find new link opps that you can show the direct value from.

The Case of the Lost Structured Snippet

In this in-depth post, author +Glenn Gabe deconstructs a real life case study of a client losing a valuable answer box to a competitor. 

Key Takeaway

Based on Gabe's analysis, how the content was structured seemed to have more of an impact that domain or page authority metrics, technical factors, structured data or social shares.

Thanks to +Mark Traphagen for originally sharing on LinkedIn.

When a client loses its featured snippet, columnist Glenn Gabe does some competitive analysis to try to determine why. His findings may shed light on what it takes to get a featured snippet in Google search results.

One in 7 people on the entire planet logged onto Facebook Monday

Facebook hit a new milestone on Monday with 1 billion users logging in on a single day.  While active users may be declining in the U.S., the social network is seeing explosive growth internationally. 

Twenty percent of the world's population is on Facebook, the company said in January. But this was the first time that so many of them used the service in a 24-hour period.

Google Expands Social Search

Late last week it was announced on Google's official blog that real time content from Twitter is now available to searchers on both mobile and desktop devices.

While tweets have been getting crawled and indexed for years, the recent partnership allowing Google access to Twitter's Firehouse (the API that allows access to tweets as they happen) will allow Google to find and deliver timely, relevant content from Twitter in it's results. 

This development is another way for businesses, brands and users alike to reach new audiences via Google Search.

Read the original announcement here: http://goo.gl/E2Owq7

Set Reminders From Google Desktop Search

Here's a reminder box I was delivered for a logged in desktop search. The box wasn't a good result for the query, but it's cool to see another layer of personalization in search.

New Rechargeable Battery Lasts a Lifetime

I'm always excited about new technology that will reduce waste. 

Their solid electrolyte is called a “superionic lithium-ion conductor,” composed of lithium, germanium, phosphorus, and sulfur. It makes their battery design better than standard batteries in all the ways that matter: Its lifespan can last for hundreds of thousands of charges, it stores more energy in the same amount of space, and it also addresses some safety concerns present with other batteries.
It's all about solid electrolytes, not the ubiquitous liquid electrolytes in current rechargeable batteries.
