How to Generate More Web Content from Google Hangouts on Air

The latest post from “Search Engine People Blog”, “How to Generate More Web Content from Google Hangouts on Air”

“Google Hangouts on Air have been the best thing Google Plus has given to us. The ability to set up video conferences with multiple participants, the easiness of set-up and the “live streaming” option: There’s simply no alternative for this product.

Google HOA is also a great way to generate some pretty sweet web content for their blog, service or site. But before I go into that, let me refer you to my older SEP blog post on how you can make the most of Google HOA content on re-packaging it into in multiple content formats including podcasts, courses, etc.

If you need more re-packaging ideas, First Site Guide has the whole section dedicated to all types of content you can create for your blog. The idea is, if you decide to give a Google HOA a try, don’t stop at hosting video discussions: Instead, make the most of your effort by re-purposing that video content again and again to reach more channels…”

Tweaking Landing Pages to Increase Quality Score

Most recent article from Pay Per Click Marketing Blog, “Tweaking Landing Pages to Increase Quality Score”

“If you happen to run an adwords campaign, you are already aware of the fact that the success and failure of the campaign hangs by a thread and often times, the very thread is controlled by a mysterious element code named as Quality Score.

Google Penguin 3.0 damage report

Stephen Kenwright posted, “Google Penguin 3.0 damage report”

“Google has yet to issue official confirmationbut we’re confident that the Penguin algorithm is currently rolling out.

Branded3 rank checks more than 125,000 keywords each day and stores them so we can see some of the biggest fluctuations already. We can drill this down to specific keywords/topics (SERPs) so we can be much more accurate when diagnosing ranking changes. Several sites we’re sure have been affected by the algorithm in the past have seen huge increases in rankings today. John Mueller has previously confirmed that Penguin would have to be run in order for this to happen so we can be pretty sure that it has.

Penguin 3.0 is an update of the algorithm not a refresh of the data set which means that the quality metrics feeding into Penguin have changed, along with the thresholds required to avoid it.
