"Alex Wheeler, Starbuck’s vice president of global digital marketing, told The New York Times, “When we think about posting on Google+, we think about how does it relate to our search efforts.” According to the The New York Times report, Starbucks has only three million Google+ followers compared to its Facebook page’s 36 million Likes. The New York Times says Starbucks, “Updates its Google+ page for the sake of good search placement, and takes advice from Google representatives on how to optimize Google+ content for the search engine.” While The Economist’s senior director of audience Chandra Magee did say journalists at The Economist take advantage of Google+ features like Hangouts, she also commented on how Google+ improves the brand’s SEO efforts. “There is potential there [on Google+] to help us get in front of new audiences,” Magee told the New York Times, “But it also helps with our SEO strategy because our posts on Google+ actually show up in our search engine results.” The New York Times reports Google offers brands incentives to sign up on its social media network, giving companies with Google+ profiles, “Prime placement on the right-hand side of the search results, with photos and promotional posts.”" #butthurt #BS #Google #monopolies #status_quo #goliath #pub
"I was recently featured in a CNBC article about Penguin and the lack of updates (article here ). After the author interviewed me, he went back to Google for comments on my claims. They responded by giving him some of my past Reddit posts: 1) where I asked about possibly buying an email list and 2) asking for feedback on getting my site to convert. Think about that for a second. Neither of those things have ANYTHING to do with my sites SERP rankings. It was only Google trying to imply that I must be a bad person and therefore I deserve to be indefinitely penalized by Penguin." #Google #not_evil #you_are_bad_pattern #manipulation #monopolies #pub
