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

Pomplamoose 2014 Tour Profits (or Lack Thereof) | PandoDaily
[A] new paradigm for professional artistry. We’re entering a new era in history: the space between “starving artist” and “rich and famous” is beginning to collapse. YouTube has signed up over a million partners (people who agree to run ads over their videos to make money from their content). The “creative class” is no longer emerging: it’s here, now. We, the creative class, are finding ways to make a living making music, drawing webcomics, writing articles, coding games, recording podcasts. Most people don’t know our names or faces. We are not on magazine covers at the grocery store. We are not rich, and we are not famous. We are the mom and pop corner store version of “the dream.” If Lady Gaga is McDonald’s, we’re Betty’s Diner. And we’re open 24/7. We have not “made it.” We’re making it. [...] Relevant Passion Content vs Interesting Content (Gossip, Celeb, 24/7 News Cycle (C&P Re-Posts & Repackaged ala HuffPo) ... in an age of FB Newsfeed & Co. for discovery. &! bit.ly/1Aqw2ZJ

How a fake Star Wars trailer reveals everything wrong with “content journalism” | PandoDaily
But one outlet, eager to compete in what the Awl’s John Herrman calls “The Content Wars,” ( http://www.theawl.com/slug/the-content-wars ie http://www.theawl.com/2014/11/the-john-oliver-video-sweepstakes-finale ) made a huge error in its play for Star Wars trailer traffic: It posted a fake trailer. [...] How many hours a year do bloggers, interns, and homepage editors of news sites spend writing the same article and embedding the same video as their competitors? Couldn’t this time be better devoted to finding new stories or new avenues for analysis? [...] It’s hard to blame publishers. They need clicks to placate advertisers who, after all, are the ones paying most of our salaries. But if this Rolling Stone mess-up teaches us anything it’s that, while competitive click-chasing can be a dangerous game, it’s always easy to cover up your mistakes.

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

Native advertising remains an awkward — but very necessary — mess | PandoDaily
http://bit.ly/1rRdtax "“We can buy page views… but we can’t buy time spent,” Segrist said, euphorically. The New York Times jumped “full force” into native 12 months ago, according to Tomich. “It’s been incredibly successful,” he said. “Success is limitless with this type of advertising.”" | http://bit.ly/1nZKdcB + http://bit.ly/1rzyfxM + http://bit.ly/1umjzEp + http://bit.ly/1zbHXYd + http://bit.ly/1rzJEMB "Facebook is no longer a social network. It’s the world’s most powerful news reader [...] I no longer go to the New York Times front page to start my day. I get there through the ‘side door.’ Facebook. [...] Facebook drives massively more referral traffic than Twitter, and publishers I’ve surveyed confide that the ratio can be as high as ten or twenty to one.
