Don’t be a Twit on Twitter

Ways to Use Twitter Constructively

If you're a person who wonders why on earth people use Twitter, you're definitely not alone. Some would say that the service has no value, except to let others in on what's happening in their daily lives. And let's face it:  knowing what your Twitter contact just had for dinner or what they're watching on television at that very second doesn't exactly get your neurons firing. But before you delete your Twitter account for good, you should know that the service can benefit you in several ways when you use it constructively. Goal Setting               If you're working on getting in better shape by working out or choosing not to consume your regular morning donut, tweeting about it can help you get the encouragement you need. Not only does putting your intentions out there let people know what you plan to do, but it can also result in valuable advice and encouragement about meeting your goal. Meeting New People By participating in a discussion, you can run into others who have the same interests as you do.

Can Allowing Social Media Into the Workplace Be Beneficial to Business?

There is no question that social media has infiltrated the world of business. Social media networks are used for advertising, branding, and gauging target markets. However, there is an issue up for debate that hits a little closer to home (or, business office, that is): Can allowing social media in the workplace be beneficial to businesses? Many businesses in the past have opted out of that allowance, citing viruses, employee distraction, and a threat to productivity as the main reasons. But are these businesses missing out on something big? Is it possible that social media in the workroom could actually better the work environment? Here is an examination of this very relevant question: Why social media? It seems the first article of inquiry has to do with what, exactly, employees might use social media for while on the job. Of course, it is obvious that employees can communicate quickly and effectively using social media. But they can also do that with chat and email, right? Where social media trumps those other outlets is in its ability to provide real-time photos and videos to a broad audience, and to allow that audience to interact with each other in response, and in a...

Is It Still Possible to Find a Good Domain Name?

Whether you're starting a new project, blog or launching an entirely new business, a good domain name is vital. Just like the location of a retail shop can make or break its success, you want a domain name that's going to create a memorable "home" on the Internet. Because there are plenty of people who not only buy domain names for their active undertakings, but also dozens or hundreds of extras in hopes of flipping them to other buyers, it's easy to feel like there are no good domain names left.  Fortunately, although it may take some digging on your part, it's still possible to find solid domain names. Here are some tips to help you get started:  Stick to What's Proven: Over the last few years, there have been lots of trendy Web 2.0 domain names. These names are completely made up words or domains that use alternate extensions to spell out words. While it's always tempting to jump on the bandwagon, most startups that have gone down this route haven't succeeded. With a few notable exceptions like Digg and Flickr, most of these domain names have simply created more problems for themselves than traction. Despite the constant stream of...

How Do Trending Topics Affect Traditional SEO?

Brutal Search Dynamics Marketing value off a search result is critical since its lifespan could be as short as until the next related search result. By the next search iteration, things may have changed dramatically, with the outcome ranked considerably lower in the visible listings and not considered adequately relevant.Since the ultimate goal of search engine optimization is to improve awareness of a website and its offerings to any query routine, decreasing ranking of search results is not desired. Content management systems are constantly in flux as relevance issues drive source code and site content.As site content changes, so do the hyperlinks that point viewers to relevant pages within the site's domain. In earlier years, intense link manipulation occurred to influence search outcomes by unscrupulous webmasters. In order to prevent link manipulation, many factors incorporated in today’s ranking algorithms are not disclosed. Trending As a Ranking Distracter There is a plain truth that all collies are dogs, but not all dogs are collies. This truth somewhat applies to trending topics.

Latest Developments in Bing vs. Google Battle

In the race to be the most popular Internet search engine on the planet, the field is aptly described as a group of tortoises conspiring to catch a hare.Google dominates search competition so thoroughly (82.89% of the global search market share, at last count) that it’s often hard for tech commentators not to just shrug their shoulders and write about something else. Even so, love of underdogs and the prospect of the overthrow of empire attracts buzz.  Now, it appears Microsoft may be taking another jab at the champion in a tag-team effort between its Bing search platform and Mozilla’s Firefox Web browser. Bing has been an albatross around Microsoft’s neck since 2009, losing the company $5.5 billion in intervening years, but the new deal may breathe new life into the war of the search engines.  Microsoft hopes the deal, inked in the shadow of an expiring partnership between Mozilla and Google, will help elevate the search engine’s paltry market share of 4% to something that can justify not terminating the venture before it hemorrhages even more funds.  The news sheds new light on rumors in other camps that have been speculating on Microsoft’s possible acquisition of Yahoo, and would suggest...

Put Rocket Fuel Into Your Social Media Accounts with Social Safe

For many people online social networking is virtually synonymous with communication, and has in fact become the ideal or even preferred way to reconnect with old friends, stay connected to a circle of special people, and forge new relationships. Far from feeling impersonal, many online groups mimic the close connections often present in relatively small communities and established neighborhood subdivisions that are often missing from daily experiences. Accordingly, this safe feeling often belies the need for precautionary measures to protect carefully constructed online social networks, but Social Safe may be a wonderful tool for safeguarding your accounts against being inadvertently deleted, purposely hacked, or merely lost. SocialSafe is essentially a digital journal and backup apparatus for social network accounts that allows you to manipulate your included items in a variety of ways. The various versions let you download, export, search, or view your social network catalogue, including friends, followers, photos, or blogs. Losing this information would likely be extremely inconvenient at best and traumatic at worst, and this is what SocialSafe protects against. Beyond protecting your information, using SocialSafe also gives you a confidential way to save and revisit your past online commentary from a week, a month, or even a...
