Well I'd like to give you some uplifting speech about how I sit here behind my desk every day, doling out nuggets of wisdom to you mentally malnourished idiots, but that would be a lie.
Instead, what we've got here is almost four thousand people who equate to little more than trained monkeys who sit here all day long doling out nuggets of wisdom to mentally malnourished idiots like you.
So, there, newbie. That is Explain Like Doctor Cox, explained like Doctor Cox. Now go ahead and commit that to your little unicorn diary before I get so mad I decide to hurt myself.

How does engagement affect the ranking authority of individual Google+ posts?
1. Mystery of the social media post's ranking roller coaster.
2. Google+ content changes authority with the flow of the stream.
3. In search of the elusive Google+ post authority source.
4. G+ rocket boost gets pages seen, but then pages must carry it.

I'm having an interesting conversation on Twitter right now; moving it in here to get your input (and to take advantage of the G+ long-form formatting I love).
says (paraphrased): Why don't we do something like #SEOChat (a Twitter chat) in G+ with Google+ hashtags?
Initially my thoughts are: Yeah... why don't we do that?? And I immediately think it's for lack of action and suggest that, were we interested in doing this, we'd need a motivated leader and someone to regularly market the chat (like #SEOChat has).
I say: "if you build it they will come."
Then says (in 140 characters or less): "Because unnecessary. Can chat in a post or community. Much easier!"
And I think, well, that makes a lot of sense. Duh.
So I say to - Traphagen made a great point about G+ UX allowing for in-line commenting; which means we don't need the hashtag-based Twitter Chat format. Maybe instead of trying to rile up a new G+-style #SEOChat , we can just make a plan to start attending the regular HOAs, since those are kind of like Twitter Chats with in-line commenting anyway.
Then, after some more pushing from (pushing appreciated; #NotLettingItDie ), I have the revelation that in most G+ #HOA s you have an audience and a group of presenters, and the audience shows up to hear a presentation and to ask questions. Where as, in a Twitter Chat, everyone that shows up is a part of the presentation. The attendees are the meat and potatoes. It's kind of like a real-time round table war room where all these random SEOs can show up and learn from the responses each give to a guided list of questions.
HOA = presenter + listeners + audience asking presenters questions with the goal being for attendees to learn from presenters
Twitter Chat = group of community members all answering the same questions at the same time -- and asking their own questions -- in an open forum with the goal being for attendees to learn from each other.
Hmmmm..... This perspective shift really got my wheels spinning.
I know we have G+ Communities to bounce ideas off of each other, and sometimes HOAs are more open with attendee conversation (and jump-in style) permitted -- but has anyone experienced a Google+ HOA that acts more like a Twitter Chat? (re: truly open community conversation based on one leader's questions to the whole group).
Looping , , , into this to see if they have any input, or can point me (and ) toward a G+ community experience that has a vibe similar to #SEOChat /Twitter Chats in general.

Throughout my webtastic voyage through the seas of SEO knowledge I come upon a jewel of information, or have a moment of clarity. It is in this moment that I open my blog and post. I find that the majority of my posts center on content writing advice, and how people can harness the power of their website content to be successful as website owners. On a personal note, I enjoy good desk toys and hope someday to be fluent in japanese, german, spanish, russian, korean, thai, vietnamese and french. A lofty goal to be sure, but I enjoy the challenge. I'm off to sail the seas of search!
