New Undetectable Type of Negative SEO Attack Uncovered

As if SEO wasn’t hard enough already, negative SEO has been increasing. Which isn’t surprising, because if the main problem is lack of real estate on the 1st page, the best solution is how do you take out your competitor’s? Well, traditionally, negative SEO has revolved around sending bad links to the target website. But now it’s started to evolve into using canonical tags, which are really, really hard to detect. What the heck does that mean? It means if you’re doing negative SEO, you build a bad website and use a canonical tag to point to a competitor’s website, showing association, and with association and with the negative website being bad, it sinks the competitor’s site. It’ll be interesting to see what Google does to stop this.

Here Comes The Fake Videos, Too

Great article by The New York Times on the coming problems with fake video technology. And just as its become easier and easier to create your own website, within a few years, it’ll pretty easy for anyone to create a fake video. Not just using a person’s face, but their clothes, the rest of their body. My big fear is that kid’s will go nuts over this to bully other kids. The lines between reality and virtual reality are going to become even more blurry and I’m not sure what us parents are going to do to protect our kids from it.

Automatically opt in search advertisers to native banner ads?

Automatically opt in search advertisers to native banner ads? Not cool Bing. Not even Google is that sneaky. Got to love the fortitude of Bing though. They explain why: “This feature enables advertisers to get additional high-quality traffic from non-search placements.” Yeah, non-search placements. IE banner ads. IE no intent ads, which is what makes search so valuable. Banner ads should be renamed “accidental click ads”. CPM is only way they work.

US: Youth Exodus From Facebook Accelerates

Facebook is bound to someday be the next MySpace because young people aren’t as likely to use it. Seems like each generation wants to have its own social media network. Don’t think Facebook is in danger of going out of business, since they can just buy all the social media networks that spring up like Instagram. If only the kids knew who owned Instagram.

Big Companies Don’t Get Internet Marketing

This is why experts like myself do well. Because even big companies like AT&T don’t get internet marketing. Their subject in their email was: “Is it easy to find your business online?” It’s bad for two big reasons. 1) Unless you’re a big business with a known brand, you don’t want to be easily found. Why? Because easily found equals overpaying per click. And when you overpay per click, it equals less calls and customers. And 2) It’s not good to get the business owner focused on how often they pop up on search. Because it has nothing to do with whether they make money or not. Being found easily does not mean website clicks turn into calls. And does not mean calls turn into customers.

80 days around the world, we’ll find a pot of gold just sitting where the rainbow’s ending.

But when I end up in the hay it’s only hay, hey hey. I might jump an open drawbridge, or Tarzan from a vine. ‘Cause I’m the unknown stuntman that makes Eastwood look so fine.
