What Would You Do If You Did Not Have to Work, Ever?

The question becomes even more interesting when you consider why we have to work. This is one of my thought experiments, the result of other, analytical projects I have been involved in. It makes some assumptions and then challenges ... everything.

The Wave Man Workout

During the twilight of the feudal system in Japan masterless samurai or Ronin  proliferated (Miyamoto Musashi, the author of Go Rin No Sho) was one. This is a cool workout for those who have a broomstick to swing around a little (and not may lampshades in the way ;) ).

Tracking Online Commentary with nod3x.com

There's so much focus on #ContentMarketing  that it's easy to overlook where the golden nuggets can actually be found - in the comments on the originators posts. This is why today we've added Comments to your NOD3x Projects.

Comments, which can be found on your Dashboards in the latest Posts window, will track all comments made on posts contained in your NOD3x Projects an will help you identify individuals that don't necessarily post content themselves but prove themselves as thought leaders purely by the added value they bring to a post.

Comments can also be used with NOD3x Projects that are purely collecting posts relating to your brand, product or service either to:

▶ Bring all of the ensuing engagements into one place e.g. you don't have to monitor multiple social platforms

▶ Customer service discussions

▶ Additional key engager identification 

In addition to the above, you may simply want to find posts where on-going discussions/threads are taking place and by reviewing the Comments window will now mean that you can quickly find people with an opinion on a post that appeals to you.

As always, we welcome any feedback

How to Use Clean Google+ URLs & G+ Canonicals

My article today for +Plus Your Business! covers Google+ Clean URLs & a chat I had with Google's +John Mueller on the purpose of the extra G+ URL parameters (extra characters appearing in your browser address bar). Then I explain the Google+ canonical URLs, what they are & how they're best for sharing.

Attentive G+ users will notice there are quite a variety of URL types which appear in the browser address bar that don't always follow expected patterns, and so many users end up sharing & linking back to G+ content with unnecessarily long G+ URLs.

Regarding these extra URL parameters +John Mueller tells me in a +Google Webmasters Office-hours Hangout...


So if you share a URL, stripping that out is a great practice, because that way it automatically uses whatever the user who's looking at it has as their default profile.

...it's not something that we use for indexing, we try to strip that out as well, and I think if you share a URL it's best to strip that out, so it doesn't focus on any specific profile of the person who's clicking on it.



When managing Google+ Pages there's also a number of other interesting URL parts which I discuss. So here's the topics...

1. The main Google+ Canonical URLs.
2. Some of the many types of Google+ Profile URLs.
3. The different types of Google+ Page URL parameters.
4. Sharing a G+ Post link with the 'Link to post' URLs.
5. My discussion with John Mueller on cleaner Google+ URLs.
6. How I usually keep cleaner G+ URLs in the address bar.

10 Blog Tips from One of the Best in the Business

You can't expect to be a boss blogger like +Mike Allton is until you've put in the time and effort and honed your skill-set to his level. That doesn't mean you won't get there, it'll take time. 

This is a good start point for new bloggers and seasoned bloggers alike. I need to retrain myself on Top #9

1) Write your blog post for one person at a time.

2) Write blog posts based on questions people have asked.

3) Have a persona, with specific attributes (age, name, income, needs, issues, area) that can connect with your target audience.

4) Putting Google AdSense on a new site could actually hurt your organic traffic.

5) It has been statistically shown that your site needs about 50 pieces of content in your archive for organic traffic.

6) Two to 3 blog posts per week is ideal for small to medium business. For bloggers, write and blog every day.

7) Syndication for new bloggers isn’t great as if the site who syndicates your post is bigger than your site you may get less than search engine traffic.

8) Use excellent social share buttons on your blog and put the counters there for social proof (be the first to share)

9) Don’t try create epic content all the time

10) Use Evernote so that no ideas get lost

6 Extraordinary Space-Efficient Ideas for Home Design

The first thing you should know about when it comes to decorating a small home is that nothing is impossible. With just a little imagination and some practice, you’ll be able to turn your place into a cozy little home that’ll be completely functional. The golden rule that’ll make everything work is based on putting everything in its place after you've used it, to avoid spending hours on cleaning the mess – everything else is easy when you have the right idea.

3 Book Series You Have to Read

Reading is always fun and more rewarding than simply watching TV. Sure, there are plenty of high-quality TV shows available, but nothing will ever replace the experience of holding a book (not those e-readers, even though they are pretty green and cool) and listing through the pages, holding your breath, expecting what will happen next. Now, if you like reading, and you would like to add some fantasy (epic fantasy maybe?) to your life, look no further. We got just the thing for you.

Small Businesses and Data Management: What Are Your Options?

Well, big data is here and there is nothing you can do to stop it. While good data management has proven useful time and time again, there have also been tons of situations in which businesses are jammed up by poorly handled data management. This problem is serious and doesn't only strike small businesses but also medium sized and corporations as well, but the reason why I have decided to focus on small businesses and their issues with data management is because they tend to suffer from it the most and this barrier can block them from further development for longer periods of time.
