Neat! Thanks for sharing. How was Pesach in Singapore? Was it easy to find Kosher for Pesach products there?

Loved the article! I'm glad someone is out there using Splunk for SEO. It's one of my favorite "SEO Tools".

Sadly (not provided) happened ... I used to use Splunk to monitor keyword traffic by n-grams at real time to see if there was an algo shift that effected our long tail vs head terms.

Should you use a ccTLD? Do people even know what they are? This study offers some surprising answers for SEOs and business owners who aim to connect with an international audience.

Neat article, though I think it is missing some key technical considerations such as the implications on cookies (and, as a corollary, persisting logins across TLDs), the hackability of country domain name servers, as well as the provisioning and deployment of SSL certificates across many TLDs. From that perspective, at least, my own conclusion is that it is far more effort than it is worth and can make local versions of the site vulnerable to DNS hijacking.

As smartphone technology becomes ever more advanced our dependence on our devices can give us separation anxiety when they are not within arms reach of their phones. To understand just how attached we have become to our phones, I decided to run a survey to learn more about American mobile phone habits.To collect this data, I launched the survey on SurveyMonkey’s Audience tool with the goal of gathering the statistically significant 400 responses...

International SEO is really not that hard if you just pick the right keywords for a global audience. Google's Hummingbird algorithm is not nearly as effective in languages other than English, so proper keyword research is absolutely essential. Follow these 16 steps to discover the right keywords and use these keywords in your international content marketing.

The Reddit Front Page is Not a Meritocracy

Much to my surprise, I found out that reddit's front pages are not a pure "meritocracy" based on votes, but that rankings depend heavily on subreddits. The subreddits themselves seem to follow a quota system that allocates certain subreddits to specific slots on pages one and two, and also prevents the front page from devolving entirely into animal gifs. As a final kicker, in case it wasn't completely obvious, I learned that links on the front pages of reddit receive a lot of traffic!

Really interesting bit of analysis here that uncovers how Reddit's front page might be engineered.

I was pleasantly surprised when somebody shared my traveling salesman animation to reddit and the post made it all the way to reddit’s default front page (i.e. the top 25). The gif racked up …
