Google Annouces: “Search Plus Your World”

Google shows it’s hand and announces that it plans on using Google+ in search results. Not a big surprise but it’s causing a bit of uproar. Twitter is not happy.

Arnie Kuenn with Vertical Measures shares a few thoughts about this here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/110566958667439985502/posts/34u49ADmDKN

My Comment:

I think its a mixed bag… I do appreciate the endorsements given by people in my circle’s on certain searches, but on others it is annoying and not relevant. I like knowing what Arnie says about SEO, but I may not want to know what Arnie thinks about watches… no offense Arnie. I consistently open Chrome’s incognito window to filter our the personalization of my search.

Video Marketing Challenge – 2012

Anthony Kirlew, with AKA Old School SEO

Anthony is getting the vibe that videos are heating up… http://www.oldschoolseo.com/2012/01/06/take-the-video-marketing-challenge/

YouTube, Vimeo, and the likes are already big. YouTube actually qualifies for the 2nd largest search engine. Yes, it out ranks Bing. And while YouTube is a vertical search engine dealing only with videos, it’s still a force to be reckoned with. My predictions are videos and views will grow exponentially in 2012.

I think video marketing is going to be huge in 2012. I mean it’s already big… but it will be even bigger.
