The Great Mobile Technology Movement

Think Mobile with Google

The Unprecedented Mobile Technology Movement

Some very interesting points are made about mobile technology, where it is today, and where it’s going tomorrow.  Who will be in the game, who will succeed, and who will fail?  One thing for sure is that the mobile technology movement has already made more impact on small and large businesses across the globe.

More than any other product and in any time period ever!


There are currently over 5 Billion mobile phones owned by consumers and each device is capable of providing at least 10 daily tools and uses minimum for its owner.

Telephone calls, GPS mapping, Google searches, Internet browsing, text messaging, photos, videos, social media access, email, games, calendar, contacts, music, apps, voice memos and much more.  So what is the “Call To Action” for the independent contractor, the small business owner, you and I who are out in the trenches using mobile technology everyday?

You need to act now!

Google Juice Resides in Commenting

Is There Google Juice in Commenting on Blogs?

This Google alert just came in and the Google spiders decided to use Mike Yeo’s comment as part of the indexing process.  My next thought was to Google the title of this post to see what the first section of the search results showed?

Here’s a screen shot of the Google “Title” search:

So what happen to Mike Yeo’s comment and why didn’t he show up in the search results?  Google alerts selects an entirely different range of content when it sends you the alert, it is not the same content that is selected to appear in the search engine results.

Don’t be fooled by the Google Alert thinking that all the juice (SEO) is in the comment, especially if the site you are commenting on uses “no-follow” links which many do.

The Google juice I’m referring to here in the comments are the one way links back to your site or profile which can be very powerful in page rank and your sites popularity.  So what are you waiting for, leave a comment below and lets see if this is correct and true?

BTW – when you do leave a comment on an ActiveRain blog post, there is a one way “follow” link back to your ActiveRain profile.  Getting 25 points for a comment is neat, but getting those one-way links back to your page for SEO is awesome!

#1 Complaint About Twitter Is…

The whale looks far too happy for a site that is down and broken.

Besides, don’t whales need to be kept “In The Water” to Live?  Not sure what message Twitter is trying to make here, not sure anyone even put any thought into this message, but considering that Twitter is one of the Top 5 LARGEST Social Media platforms on the web, this has to be the #1 complaint we hear about Twitter all the time, something we know everyone would love to have them fix!
