    We’ve discussed many of these issues in detail on the blog, so today I’m interested in going a bit deeper with the discussion and looking at social media at a more fundamental level. This is definitely a case of reactionary blogging—simply doing something because we don’t want to be left behind the mainstream. The idea of a social network being a mass communication medium through which we update our followers on everything we blog may change as the shape of social networking changes from mass networks to niche networks. targeting.

    [Blog] Link Removal Request Email Related to Google Disavow Tool
    won’t go into all the details about whether or not you need to use the Google Disavow Tool or not, that’s really too much information to go into right now–and should be detailed in another blog post. Google has released their Google Disavow Tool , an online tool part of Google Webmaster Tools that allows web site owners disavow links to their web site. You really only need to use this tool if you’ve been unsuccessful in getting bad links or over-optimized anchor text links to your site removed. This email is lengthy–and I applaud them for their efforts.

    In a unrelated discovery yesterday I found the latest updates to WordPress on my iPhone allow creating and uploading videos to blogs and I did that with an event I attended last night at the Lisa Salon in Dumbo. The only glitch is WordPress is hosting those videos, not YouTube – so it would be nice to have a way to take a video while in WordPress, upload it to YouTube then automatically embed it onto the blog post.  In other words – how to you get sentiment out of a situation where people don’t have strong feelings one way or the other?   Just a thought.

To cover this, I’m going to do a blog series, newsletter series, a free webinar, and then package the “making of&# this project, and finally release an ebook with even more information on the process. I’ll put links to the individual blog posts on this page. I’m starting a series called Building is Sexy. Subscribers to my free newsletter will get the other 2/3 of the story as it unfolds. The Package. Watch This Space. The more I add to the project, the more valuable this page will be.
