This is why we live through our struggles in life.  Art is the greatest weapon against violence.

When was the last time you saw a #FailWhale on Twitter?  Amazing what a multi billion dollar IPO can do.

Is starting to show Tweets in SERP?  The announcement was made in Feb of this year about them accessing the Twitter API fire hose again, but people aren’t talking about seeing a change.  In this case it doesn’t have to do with access to the fire hose, and it may just be an extreme outlier I stumbled on.   My analysis last year showed almost no actual tweets ranking on G.  This one even has structured markup data showing items like "retweet"

It's from the PGA-- who I don't follow.  It's not a popular tweet, but it's dead on with the keywords.  One wonders if a Tweet with 20x more re-tweets would out-rank this if it were the same.  

I doubt it.  Look at all the Twitter pages Google ranks currently-- account pages like twitter.com/President and you see it's all about authority for ranking.  See my post for more about accounts and words ranking tops for Twitter pages ranking: http://tweetphiladelphia.com/top-10000-popular-keywords-semrush-secret-sauce/

I do data, very big data, for analysis of Web search
Introduction



I help organizations leverage the SEMrush industry leading database of 95,000,000+ keywords and 48,000,000+ domains for competitive analysis. I work with the best known Internet companies, Fortune 500s, and other organizations looking to maximize their SEO and SEM budgets.

Does data sound desirable? Our API intriguing? Integration anyone? Please reach out to me at SEMrush about integrations or custom reports.

I publish a large resouces about the intersection of SEO and Social Media, Tweet Philadelphia.  

ClickStream Marketing, Inc. was an Interactive agency I owned and ran for three years.  It employed 15 people.  

I worked for two dotcom companies before the speculators killed the Web, temporarily, in 2000: Delphi.com and Smartage.com.  

I've been a serious photographer since 1993.  My website, Border Crossing, was on the Web in one incarnation or another since 1995 (on its current domain since 1996).  I've sold my prints on a limited basis.

I was at the one down by the Graduate Hospital, and it's full of grad students and others working. If that's your thing, it's perfect. I hear the one at this location tends to have more "teachers."

Hand's down the best place to buy quality clothes at a steep discount. Don't expect to find everything. Go in and look in all major sections. I haven't seen a comparable store in Boston, NYC, Chicago. I have no idea about the women's section.

Only a few dollars more than a simple sushi spot and you get far better quality food and decor

This is what it's all about. This is the "cheers" of coffee houses in Philly-- but geared towards people that want to be out-and about while doing work. Great employees, great energy with all the smart people all around. So many like me call this their second home. You can find me here working on a laptop for a couple hours, four days a week.

fantastic contribution to the community color and non-McEverwhere that pervades so many places in the USA.
