As either site owner or marketer, we don't have just one relationship with Google - some of them are mutually beneficial, while others are one-sided. Every time something changes, we need to re-evaluate each of those relationships from a cost vs. value standpoint.

My old buddy Ahmad recently tapped me for an interview, so I got a chance to spew all my theories and opinions, uninterrupted!

Hmmm... uninterrupted.... almost like being a single man! LOL

This is an experiment to see the reach on a new page.
Once this image is shared/+1d we can look at the view count/reach relationship for a new page.

Always up for testing, +Rand Fishkin 
 
Running another test. If you'd like to help out, that's great, but you can also feel free to ignore this :-)

http://moz.com/rand/enchiridion-hoypoloi/ - I'm trying to test indexing speed and whether a Google+ share can get something indexed all by itself (and how long that takes). Yesterday I tested on Twitter and the URL took a little over 12 hours to get indexed (and I can't be sure it came directly through Twitter). Will be interesting to see what happens with G+.

Please DON'T share this URL anywhere but on G+ - no URL shorteners, no other social media, no links, etc. Thank you!

10:30 am PST today. Tune in and listen to what we foresee, going forward, regarding acceptable linking practices (are there any?) and communication between Google and publishers.

"LSI keywords" doesn't translate to "long-tail keywords". LSI is "latent semantic indexing". There is also some doubt that LSI is even in use by Google. That said, any content that more clearly defines the context of the page and the meaning of information presented will help both the users and the search algorithms better understand what is being said.

Never boring in THIS business!
Google has opened the door to another abusive spam technique - that will soon be overdone. Stick a fork in interviews!
