This Will be a Blast!

Collections, content and people. It's a potent mix. How we work with it so as to form a human connection is what yours truly will talk about. Sure, you will learn about "Voice and Tone", "Context and Framing" but really it's people, being real and making a connection and that is not always easy if you're not sure how to go about it.

I hope you can be there. :)

#Collections101 Panelist: +David Amerland
Save the date: June 27th, 2017

We are excited to announce our second #Collections101 panelist, +David Amerland!

David is an international speaker and the author of 15 books on business, the web, social media, search and cognitive analytics. He works with Fortune 500 companies and multi-nationals to help them better understand search, social media and communication in the age of the web. He spends more time online than most people would consider healthy but thinks with sufficient coffee in his veins he might just be able to stop entropy, at least for a while.

What is #Collections101?
Want to learn how to create high quality Collections and increase your exposure on Google+? Collections 101 will not only bring you the basics on Collections, but also give you insider tips on how to create Collections that stand out. The event is June 27th 2017, at 8PM Pacific Daylight Time (UTC -7). Stay tuned for our next panelist and more information about the live-stream!

Grab Some Coffee and Bring Some Questions

Ok, if you're based in Europe this one a wee bit of a challenge because of the livestream time. On the plus side you get to see the sun rise plus you will have the chance to grill +Noble plus also yours truly will be there feeling the sun rise and talking Collections (how to use them better and make them work for you). :)

It is summer. We are digital natives and timezones and sleep are details that belong to the 20th century. :D Be there! It will be awesome!

Morning Joe

We have Josephus Daniels (https://goo.gl/KTjIDD) to thank for this. It would appear we do nothing that's good for us unless somebody else makes us. Have an awesome Tuesday and ... be good!

What Robe Shall We Wear Today?

I know, I know, I need to explain that header. Bennie's been groomed today. He smells the kind of good no dog has a right to smell and he is fluffier than a fluffy toy and incredibly white.

He's going to go on his nightly walk now after which the most charitable way to describe him is "Gandalf the Grey". (sigh). Yours truly then shall labor trying to restore the salon look. :)

Have Good Coffee? You Can Then Watch & Maybe Ask Questions

Unless you're in the US the time might be a little bit if a challenge (hence the coffee) but these days I am time-zone agnostic :) so join me. Ask questions. Have a blast! This is G+ after all. It's our playground :)

Be welcome on the 27th June at 8 PDT. Meet the panelists in a Google+Create and Google+Collections initiative: David Amerland and Noble Ackerson.

A #SkyKing is Born

Well, every day really. It's the only way to ensure a fresh supply of clouds and, apparently, no two are the same. :)

+Matthias Kunze proves that sunrises can be as dramatic as sunsets. He now rules the Sky for a day (lots of partying at the Royal Palace as there's not much time to do anything else).

See what the sky is doing your neck of the woods and try to wrangle a cloud (or two).

Sending Signals Google Can See

The metadata of your digital presence sends telltale signals that can make or break the perceived quality of what you're trying to build online. +Mark Traphagen and +Eric Enge explain this brilliantly well. Listen in. :) 
Metadata Matters for SEO: Here's Why!

Metadata is a set of HTML standard tags that allow you to add defining information to your web pages, such as a search engine title, description, and main keywords.

Do these matter for your SEO? Find out why some of them do, and how to use them properly, in our video!

Sleeping in is for the Weak

The third #Collections101 HOA will feature a suitably caffeinated yours truly appearing a probably much more alert at that hour +Noble to talk Collections, what makes them work, how to do it better and how to improve what you already have. We shall have a Q & A section which will be just awesome :) - I know it'll be amazingly early if you're in Europe or the UK but hey, it's summer, we're alive and this will be fun to tackle live. :)

YouTube Adds Machine Learning to the Mix

YouTube is revamping creator studio, adds sponsored comments to Super Chats (https://goo.gl/AYnuab) and it is adding its machine learning technology to comment stream moderation to combat spam.

YouTube is undergoing some impressive transformation as Google looks to help it get past its very recent issues and become even more of a pre-eminent destination for videos on the web.
