Posted by: | Connect with me on Google+

Too Many Tattoos ... or Not Enough?The guy behind the counter looked up as I walked in and set the buzzer off.  I made eye contact, smiled and gave him the ‘howitgoin’ nod before moving to the back of the shop, on the hunt for my purchases.  After scouring the head-high shelves and filtering out the advertising noise I was able to make my selection and head back to the counter.

Sell the Story – Not the Steak

Posted by: | Connect with me on Google+

Sell the Story   Not the SteakI’ve been reading a lot online lately, and I mean a lot. Seems I’m not the only one noticing a distinct shift in the air on the internet.

Posted by: | Connect with me on Google+

Google Analytics has added a Social Media tracking component into it’s already power-house analytics offering. This confirms and builds on Google’s increasing interest in how social media collates and curates internet content – which is essentially human-moderation at it’s best.

Last year Google let slip that it was tracking the number of Tweets and Likes on pages and including them in the algorythm for search engine optimisation (SEO) – so effectively those pages which were retweeted or Liked more often…
