Yet another excellent article by +David Amerland on Google semantic search and how you can use it properly to help your company be successful well into the future.
 
Where Google's Search meets our understanding of customer intent

Optimizing a website today requires a clear understanding of a customer's journey. 
The focal point of Google's new search strategy has transitioned from tracking 1s and 0s, ticking off boxes and emphasizing the due diligence of a technically adept webmaster to focusing on people, patterns and contextual behavior. Google, as the tech giant itself states, has moved from “strings ...

"the internet is people." ~ David Amerland. Yes. It is.
 
"The Wood for the Trees"

There is a thing about the web which we often forget. Developers, journalists, marketers and designers (and pretty much anyone associated with anything which has to do with the online world) have, at some time, all forgotten the basic rule which drives the online world and makes everything else possible: the internet is people.
 
The reason we forget is simple. The moment we have within our grasp the capability to implement some new functionality, programming, design or type of marketing, the logistics required to make it happen are usually so complicated that it is easy to lose sight of the wood for the trees.

Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to grow up with polar bears in your backyard? Of course you have!
 
Karli and Allison Reimer, daughters of Churchill Wild founders Mike and Jeanne Reimer, talk about growing up with polar bears at Churchill Wild's remote polar bear lodges lodges on the coast of Hudson Bay near Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. Video and interview by Richard Bangs.

Guess who's coming to... breakfast?
 
Polar bear wanting to come in for breakfast at Seal River Lodge ( http://www.churchillwild.com/about-us/our-lodges/seal-river-heritage-lodge/ ). This photo, by Terry Allen, appeared in the +Daily Mail yesterday in the story Knock knock, who's bear? Thanks to Jill Bankey, one of our guests at Seal River Lodge way back in 2008 on the Great Ice Bear Adventure, for finding and sharing this on Twitter along with her comments:  reminds me of my great trip! Would love to be back there.

Adding value to the conversation and more #SEO goodies :) Thanks to +David Amerland for the share.
 
Creating Value in your Content in a Semantic Web

The +SEMrush blog page of the TwitChat I took part in last week is a lesson in iteself in repurposing content from one channel to another and taking the time to format it so that it becomes shareworthy in its own right. The page is a work of art and an abject lesson to what we mean by creating value in a semantic search world. Notice this is a blogpost that has taken a bunch of Tweets and through clever editing and great design managed to create something that truly adds value to the conversation. 
Are you ready to take the 2015 challenge? What do you have to start doing now to be on top next year? What about trends? Find the answers in our wrap-up!

The Importance of Trust

The buzz, during most of the week past was based around a recently released research paper by Google on how Trustworthiness can be calculated on the web without the use of links: http://goo.gl/ULpFUw

I have, of course, been talking about the ability Google to do this for some time now, detailing the steps you need to take for your business to capitalize on it. The acceleration of practices in this area is powered by the need to have trust in the results returned by search. Upon that 'simple' requirement is balanced the entire Google brand.

The last of the great thoroughbred horse trainers, H. Allen Jerkens, is in the hospital. I worked for him in the '80s. He had no match.
