Famous Internet Firsts: Then And Now #Infographic

This infographic from +WebpageFX illustrates a series of famous Internet firsts you may not have known about, including the first spam email, the first item purchased online, and some of the first social media updates. The graphic also shows where these famous firsts are today, and how they’ve grown over the years. Some of the statistics may surprise you!

Some key stats:

• The first spam email was sent by Gary Thuerk in 1978, to 400 people within ARPANET, inviting them to his company's new product demo. Today 54 Billion spam emails are sent daily.

• The first YouTube video was uploaded by Jawed Karim in 2005, which has been viewed more than 16 million times. And now, we watch 6 Billion hours of video each month.

• The first user to join Facebook in 2004 was Arie Hasit, today there are more than 1.3 Billion monthly active users, 1.1 billion of them on mobile.

Need Infographics and Images for Social Media and Websites?  Try +Canva 

As much as I love +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and +Adobe Photoshop , there are times I just want something quick and easy, and over the last 6 months, I've found +Canva to be the perfect tool. 

There are certainly other options, such as PicMonkey, but having a fair amount of experience with Canva, that's just my personal recommendation.  :-)

Don't Use PBNs for either Content or Link Spam

Too many dentists never bother asking their website company exactly WHAT they're doing to improve their Google rankings.  Far too often, less reputable companies will use link farms, Private Blog Networks, etc as black hat SEO techniques.  While these techniques can create short-term gains, when Google decides to crack down on them, your website could not only drop in rankings, it could be de-indexed completely. That means it wouldn't appear in Google at all!

For dentists who want to learn how you SHOULD interview website and/or SEO companies, I highly recommend Dr. David Wank's manual: http://www.dentaldigitalphotography.com/marketing/web-design-workbook-for-dentists-dr-david-wank/

Don't Cheat.  Just Don't.  Ignore Anyone Who Says Otherwise

In a FB marketing group for dentists today, a question was posted by someone in attendance at a social media marketing seminar.  The speaker in this seminar was actually promoting the idea of buying FB Likes, Google+ plus ones, etc. through Fiverr, and the attendee was a little suspicious of the idea of buying Likes.  And rightly so!

This evening, I'm beginning my occasional series of videos that will cover topics like these, having to do with Social Media Marketing, SEO, Website design and content, etc.  I welcome your questions and comments, and of course, please Share if you found this information useful.  :-)

This video is in response to a question that was asked in a private Facebook dental marketing group: "Should I use fiverr to buy likes for my Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. Pages for my dental practice?"

The answer should be clear, but the person asking was actually at a social media seminar, where this was being promoted as the way to get more subscribers.  Let me tell you why that's wrong.
