Seo - The Definition Keeps Expanding
By Chris Angus
Search engine optimization (SEO) has grown to embrace a number of different practices including everything from enhancing the functionality of a shopping cart to optimizing copy with keywords to adding metatags to your out of context copy. The term used to simply refer to adding metatags but search engine optimization now embraces any technique that makes your web site and web copy more friendly – period.
Technically the entire business of is divided into two main types – natural or organic and alogorithmic SEO. The organic type results from have a natural niche to your topic that makes it easy for consumers to find you in the search engine pages. It also refers to pages that are seeded with keywords by your customers such as pinged blogs and forums. The algorithmic type of refers to copy that has been optimized in some manner using keywords and metatags in order to increase search engine relevance.
So what’s the difference between organic and algorithmic nowadays? Organic tends to be easier for people to read and algorithmic is friendlier to the search engine spiders. However the idea
of organic is more of a buzzword. The most successful appeals first to machine algorithms to increase search engine relevance and secondly to the comprehension of human visitors.
Search engine optimization is something you can do yourself with the aid of a few online gadgets or you can use a service. Often these search engine optimizers practice black hat SEO, which uses slightly unethical ways to increase your page’s rankings in the search engines. It is a good idea to ask your experts if they use white hat or black hat as you are the one who is penalized for less than ethical practices. Sometimes all you need to accomplish your needs is one talented writer who can write copy for you.

Google Ads Do Not 'Pop Up'
Those who know me all to well are aware of my irritating resistance to the word "pop up" in connection with Google AdWords ads.That was one of my many suggested corrections to a recent story on Google ads over at The Register, for example.My take is that slipping the term "pop up" in journalistic pieces about Google (as in, "and for only a dollar or so, Mr. Neufeldt's ad would pop up on Google when searchers typed the words 'truck tires'...") is part of an ongoing, insidious campaign by sellers

YouTube Copyright "Fair Deal" Methodology
Stale news, but interesting:Jeremy Toeman received a notice from UMG regarding his posting of a video on YouTube that included copyrighted content (U2's Beautiful Day) in the background. The offer from the copyright owner, facilitated through YouTube, basically said, go ahead and leave the video up if you wish, but we'll be showing advertising on it.To some this might sound heavy-handed; to others, a nice compromise. I tend to think the latter. As Toeman writes, "I'm basically being encouraged b

Revenge of the Straw Man Argument: Jarvis Unhinged
Jeff Jarvis, apparently writing a book called What Would Google Do?, must have Michel Foucault spinning delightedly in his grave, as he has just discovered post-modernity! Jarvis asserts that "the Internet" is what "... opens up creativity past one-size-fits-all mass measurements and priestly definitions."I understand that as a journalism professor whose job apparently hinges on the lucrative current trade in old-media-bashing, Jarvis sort of has to say this stuff. "Curmudgeons" don't get invite

Google Street View: showing us what we may or may not want to see
I?m typing this post from my basement. Yep, I?m holed up here with bottles of water, canned tuna and powdered milk ? everything I?ll need to survive the Apocalypse. I can only assume Judgment Day is upon us, given the new low human contact recently hit when Google employee Michael Weiss-Malik proposed to his girlfriend using Google Street View. We?re all probably familiar with Google?s kitschy new gadget now ? you know, the one that essentially combines Google Maps wit

Example SearchMonkey Deployment
So basically, what SearchMonkey does is allow publishers to push their customized content look and feel right into the Yahoo Search results. Well, not push, actually, but make available, based on open formats. So for users who opt into the widget for any given company's rich content, if the listing for that content comes up in search results, custom look-and-feel info included. So if it's a Yelp review, you get a bit of the Yelp "richness, look, and feel" right on Yahoo.When I search for "g h jo
