"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[1] ). 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
