    [Blog] My thoughts on Facebook’s commenting system
    You may want to keep Facebook personal, and use Twitter/LinkedIn/your blog or site as your professional reference. Blog comments have long been one way of creating community between bloggers, whether or not those comments are seo-friendly ‘do follow’ links or ‘no follow’ If someone posts a great comment on my site, I’d like them to get the small reward of a direct link to their site, if anyone wants to find out more. There are viable alternatives already out there – for instance Disqus, as used on this blog.
    [Blog] How Many Dead Ends Are On Your Site?

    [Blog] 2011 Social Media Site of the Year: Reddit
    This is a crappy little blog and the “award” means nothing, but I can say this much – we really do explore social media every day and do whatever we can to find what’s good and bad about it. Every year (for a whopping 3 years running!) we highlight who we believe is the top social media site of the year. It’s not a popularity contest. It’s not based on (much) empirical data. There’s no voting. The team sits down and argues for an hour on Skype and I write up the piece. We’re not gurus. Long story short, our opinion means nothing. Reddit

    Neither blog post even mentioned the word social. Sometimes, it seems the phenomenal success and user growth seen by Facebook and Twitter in the last few years has boxed in what we accept as a bonafide social network - as we early adopters and tech press absorb potential challengers like chum and digest them quickly, mocking their attempts as feeble, and their traction as futile. The world is going social, whether it's little bit by little bit or in an all-in gamble to change the world. Just take a look at Apple's Ping, within iTunes. What about Spotify Social ?

    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.

    [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?

If you do cover a wide area in your niche, it can be hard to adequately cover them all properly on webpage. Your front page is the dress window of your business. What is needed is a careful balance that gives you a professional edge.

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.
