    [Blog] Dear Mr. President Barack Obama, see what had happen was… Explanation of my Black In America 4 rant about money in my pocket
    With that being said I believe the question and/or comment I was asked was about how do I feel right now, and/or what do I say to people why the NewME Accelerator is needed etc. I can’t remember if I was asked directly about President Barack Obama but I do know some of the blog comments and conversations I read or was told was about how some people were saying race doesn’t matter in Silicon Valley, and in 2011 we have a black President and we should fine, etc. Tomorrow is the big day. Let me explain the “CONTEXT” of the situation. Play the game to be successful.

    Do people struggle to know what to blog about? Social marketing are like brand ripples, lapping up to the potential consumers shore. The shore may be their laptop, their mobile, their inbox. However I have been reading Choosing Yourself by James Altucher and in a personal development context he says. And it reminded me that your social media, your content marketing strategy will only be as powerful as the business or brand itself. Many brands use social media as an plaster to cover up the scars of not truly being customer-centric. You need someone to buy them. Related articles.

That’s when you add ‘#’ in front of a word or acronym to create a clickable link. The hashtag groups tweets together on a particular subject into one place. When you click on the link you will see all the latest tweets containing that hashtag filtering out all of the other tweets.

    [Blog] The Best Five Social Media Websites For Meaningful Comments
    Images are being shared and people are starting to comment, and the comments accumulate like a Facebook or blog set of comments. When it comes to meaningful comments, and deep discussions, forget Facebook and Twitter. If anything, they can flood you with banal comments that take a lot of time yet deliver little in results. If you do go the Facebook and Twitter route, you need to maintain a lot of control over what you do and don’t become involved in. There are other sites where comments reach a more meaningful level, and often lead to much deeper conversations.

    [Blog] Do Your Page Titles Make Your Content Redundant?
    Consider the following: A user types a question into a search engine, let’s say they want to know “are keywords still important to SEO”   If your blog post is near the top in the search results, and the title is “Keywords Are Still The Backbone Of SEO” – their question has been answered, no need to dig further. One popular type of content is that which answers questions. Is that good or bad? In my opinion, it’s not the best way to craft a title, and it could effectively make your content redundant before a word is read. How so you ask?

It may seem like a good idea, yet that very concept could be harming your business. Peter Lawlor has an article on Copyblogger that discusses this issue, and much of what he says makes sense.

    Are eCommerce websites any different to a standard website or blog when it comes to SEO? You would think that a website was a website and that SEO is similar across the board. In essence, SEO is similar, however, different types of websites do need to concentrate on different areas of SEO. Ecommerce websites often include content that isn’t permanent, for example, product descriptions – these are often removed once the site discontinues that product. You need to protect that list, and to constantly monitor those keywords in search results.

    And do you know why I include pictures in my blogs? I’m reading Seducing the Subconscious by Robert Heath. It’s an interesting book, which looks at the argument that attention is what makes advertising successful and suggests that low levels of attention are actually better for advertising as opposed to focused attention. From what I’ve read so far, as well as my own experiences, I’m inclined to agree with the author. I’ve never had much faith in advertising, mainly because so much of it is so inane and kooky that I wonder how anyone can take it seriously.

    [Blog] Conversations? Now They’re Just Sound Bites
    It’s the purist in us that longs for those not so long ago days when we used to talk face to face, use Twitter the “right way&# , comment on blogs, and read newspapers…:). When you get a chance go read Jay Baer’s post titled, Is social  conversation a myth ? It’s a quick read, well worth it, and got me thinking. You know what’s cool in a weird, sorta, karma like way? Sometimes in the social media bubble, there’s  a confluence of thoughts on the same topic at the same time. This is one of those moments. Or the lack thereof. Joe Jaffe is right.

    [Blog] Only Communicate Things That Are Interesting To Members
    You might want to communicate that the site has changed, or the navigation is simpler, or members can now create their own blog posts, or an array of tweaks and changes you have made to the platform. The problem is this; members don't care about the platform.    They care if it's broken. They care if it's difficult to use. They care if they can't instantly find what they're looking for. They care if their private details are being mishandled.    But they really don't care about the platform. The platform should be transparent.
