Beyond Keywords : A look at semantic features that impact  search engine performance from desktop and mobile devices. via +Bill Slawski 
#SEO   #mobiledesign  
 
Excellent look at many semantic features that can influence how your pages are perceived by search engines

Cyrus did a great job of pointing out many things that have been around for a few years that really haven't been getting talked about enough in SEO circles, but should have been. Very well done.
As marketers, helping search engines understand what our content means is one of our most important tasks. Search engines can’t read pages like humans can, so we incorporate structure and clues as to what our content means. This post explores a series of on-page techniques that not only build upon one another, but can be combined in sophisticated ways.

Love this! You can make more friend in 2 months being interested in others than getting others interested in you in 2 years. Dale Carnegie #business   #quote  
 
You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in people than you can in two years by trying to get people interested in you.
This matters as much offline as it does online.

Take a genuine interest in people and they'll take a genuine interest in YOU!

What you really need to know about Twitter:

10 Surprising Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest Facts [infographic] by +All Twitter

"Did you know that your biggest advocates on Twitter are almost always those people with the lowest number of followers?

Yep – fewer than one in 10 of your mentions are likely to come from Twitter’s so-called “power users”. Meanwhile, 91 percent of mentions will be from those with less than 500 followers.

As you might expect, photos drive the most engagement on social media, particularly Facebook Pages. But as 75 percent of Page updates are now photos, increasingly there’s every chance that your text-only missive might stand out from the crowd."

This infographic from +Mainstreethost looks at surprising social media marketing statistics that'll likely to have the greatest impact on your company’s social strategy.
