This is a blog that looks mostly at online marketing, you might think that this is a blog post about a Google Panda update? Well, no,a bunch of online marketing types have seen The Panda Made Me Do It campaign, being run by the WWF, and thanks perhaps in part to the links with some of the algorithm updates so far this year, its something that the search community has decided to get involved with.
I’m afraid that this blog isn’t really going to answer this question, but I was intrigued whilst at BrightonSEO yesterday when I was asked “how do you get people to like you on Twitter?”
I don’t consider myself to be a social media expert, although I do like being social – I like to talk to people, find out interesting or fun titbits of information about peoples lives, share useful knowledge between people for the betterment of all of them
I also don’t think that I am exactly one of the most famous tweeters in the world, or all that widely known/liked just yet – whilst it is a terrible measure, I have only just gone past 700 twitter followers, and growth in that respect has been dwindling a little bit of late.
I recently emailed my MP Mike Hancock,of the Liberal Democrats as like many Internet aware users, I have been very concerned about the rushing through of the Digital Economy Bill.
The bill is wide ranging, although I’m not going to go into great detail here as there is a good start to information about this on the BBC.
I raised some specific concerns as well as using the Digital Economy Bill letter template from 37 Signals – particularly in relation to the methods that would be used to determine who file sharers are – for instance, as I write this blog, there are a number of unsecured networks that I could use to go online with, and download copyrighted material. Then there are issues with business and schools being responsible for any downloaded copyrighted material.
Today, I have done 3 things on the Internet, that have either helped people, or put up a fight for a cause that was worthy of fighting for.
