Now, instead of doing a search and getting back results that have either been gamed by the companies that figured out how to best search engine optimize their website to get ranked higher, Google is now pulling information from users' Google accounts (like Google+, Picasa and potentially others in the future) giving users the ability to toggle between search results that are much more personal (and personalized) and searching the Web as Google has always done. picasa.

Small Business Mavericks

Using Google’s photo sharing service, Picasa, you can share your photos and have unlimited space to store them, increasing your ability to share through Google+. In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve written a few times about Google+, but what I haven’t done is told you why your local business should be using Google+ for social networking, marketing, and branding.

Everyone has heard about Google+ already. When the search giant revealed its attempt at social networking, the news spread through the internet like wildfire.

Google has developed a WordPress plugin for publishers that does two things: Allows you to add AdSense ads easily to your WordPress blogs and websites. and Allows you to verify your website at Webmaster Tools with one click.

Content Marketing Is More Than Just Writing

Firebelly

People share photos on Instagram, Pinterest, Gentlemint, and even Flickr and Picasa. As an enthusiastic photographer, I’m always reminding people that when it comes to content marketing, it’s more than just writing. Don’t get me wrong, writing is very important. People read to gather information, learn important news, be entertained, and even get an education.
