We keep thinking Thanksgiving is this week, boy won’t we be disappointed on Thursday! Well, for now, here are some articles we’re thankful to share. And our Do Good Spotlight is on the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen because they need the cash support especially as the cold weather is here.
- Rand Fishkin spoke at SMX East this past week and Search Engine Land has a recap of his keynote on “optimizing for and against Google.” Good food for thought.
- Here’s an interview from Digiday sub-titled “Confessions of a Travel Influencer” that provides behind-the-scenes background and insight into on how some social influencers operate.
Do Good Spotlight: Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK)
The Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) feeds those who are hungry in the Trenton area and offers programs to encourage self-sufficiency and improve the quality of life of its patrons. And 4 out of 4 stars on Charity Navigator means you know your dollars are going to the people who need your help. We donated this week and you can too.
- This is a great piece from MediaPost about badging, a term used to connote onscreen cues and clues, and how Google is planning to use badging in Chrome to identify sites that load slowly and those that load quickly. If you’ve been reticent about embracing how important page load speed is to how your site competitively ranks, you’ll want to digest this article. And let us know if you have questions or want to talk about its relevance to your business.
- If you haven’t heard enough about Google’s Project Nightingale and its plans for private health data, then enjoy this explorative from MediaPost about possible plans for Google’s recent FitBit acquisition. Putting the pieces together…is this a good thing, a bad thing, or an inevitable thing to deal with down the road?
Would love to hear how you’re doing, please let me know, and in the meantime, enjoy the rest of the week!
