Google and blogs: “Shit.” – Marco.org
Landscaped changed dramatically ~2009/10 forward for blogs/content creators. >> blogs have to be now niche, focused, regular content w engagement (due to algos/ranking), ... // "If you want traffic, Google’s arc makes clear to publishers, you’re going to have to pay for it." Include Facebook. Include Twitter (Promoted Tweets). Include Snapchat (Discover, Linkedin (Pulse). >> All gained sized, thus noise, people gaming the system, ... thus owner changes rules and system for his/her advantage and gain (profit maximization). // // even content curators (by hand) can be 1/2 noise. And the summaries are just shorter bouts of noise to scan through (medium.com, Mahalo) - its like joining the dark force. // Things come and go in waves/trends; thus the next wave/trend could be self-published long-form niche content partially free (The Information, ebooks, Pando) which are remarkable (Seth Godin) // snacking is SO western lifestyle, even for information/news - is lowering productivity/focus

Does URL Structure Even Matter? A Data Driven Answer
com/red-widget – Google sees that this URL is about “red widget.” com/red_widget – Whenever you use an underscore, Google combines the word. So, in this case, Google reads your intended keyword as “redwidget” with no space.

Demystifying SEO with experiments | Hacker News
http://engineering.pinterest.com/post/109318939139/demystifying-seo-with-experiments - This is the incredibly frustrating part of White Hat SEO w/Google because: (a) At nearly every SEO conference, by Google's own actions in releasing Page Speed Insights, and by Matt Cutts engaging and talking about page speed being an important indicator it seems like speed is pretty !@$!@% important to Google and worth pouring resources into. (1) (2) [...] [...] while everything actually meaningful for SEO is absolutely black box. [...] [...] Everyone - repeat after me: SEO DOES NOT HAPPEN IN ISOLATION!

Want to understand the secret of Vice’s success? Wait and watch | PandoDaily
Most content startups have two things in common with my three year old: - They have an incredibly hard time apologizing when they’ve done something bad. (Ok, that’s all startups.) - They totally underestimate the value of patience. Crazy patience. Watching grass grow kind of patience. Mr. Miyagi killing flies with chopsticks kind of patience. To a three year old– or most startups– patience is like purgatory. Waiting five seconds for Animal Mechanicals to load on Netflix is the worst punishment Eli can imagine. Ditto, a content company forced to actually organically growing an audience through years of day-after-day production of differentiated work. Why do that when you can raise millions of dollars and employ every link-bait, social, listicle, SEO trick in the book to grow now?

How Jonah Peretti and BuzzFeed Got to $850 Million | Re/code
BuzzFeed +500 people. Even if you want to slight the company as nothing more than a Reddit repackager, someone has to do that repackaging. But if you’re only looking at BuzzFeed as a media company, then that $850 million might seem optimistic. Last year, people around the company pegged BuzzFeed’s 2013 revenue at $60 million, and now they’re supposedly on track for $120 million. Which means Dixon and his co-workers at Andreessen Horowitz are likely valuing Jonah Perreti’s company at something like 10x trailing 12-month sales. Investors value the New York Times at 1.2x sales. Time Inc. is at 0.77x. Time Warner, which mints money, is at 2x. + Are There Internet Dialects? http://youtu.be/SDPasRas5u0 Transporting Internet language, dialects, memes etc and ideas how to present stuff in an enlightening manner to mainstream. Still, thank god, there is a gap and lets hope there will always be a gap. ++ !! "most revenues come from creating ads for other brands" !! ++ http://bit.ly/1r64hlX

On Google's new Search Algo Push/Update - Called Panda.
Lesson Learned. Don't build your business on other peoples platform. Even if it is search. Meaning if your business is primarily impressions/unique visitors coming in via search, or even Social Media (FB - newsfeed algo, Twitter - noise + search algo, Pinterest - search algo, Amazon - product search) ... then you have one more thing to worry about every day - because you can't fix it if they break it for you. +++ http://recode.net/2014/05/23/yes-google-punished-ebay-for-bad-seo-practices-but-it-wasnt-part-of-panda-update/
