GoMo Initiative, Instant America, SEO, Social Web, Speedlink 11:2012

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great week. This week, aside from the “normal” news surrounding Google, FaceBook, Pinterest, and all that tech stuff, there were some in particular that called my attention. These include, Google’s apparent makeover of its search results, Matt Cutt’s announcing on SXSW that they will attempt to “level the playing field” between webmasters that build quality content versus webmasters who are just really aggressive SEOs and, lastly, the all important need for speed and making your website mobile friendly.

Need for speed and website mobile friendliness continues to be an issue that you, an online business owner, should really pay attention to. A recent study by OnlineGraduatePrograms, reveals staggering and mind boggling information about how Americans have gone impatient when it comes to “waiting” for answers online. This infographic of Instant America will show you some fast figures like, what impact can 4/10ths of a second can mean in today’s fast speed browsing. Go ahead, just take a look at it and come back 🙂 While it is a study about American browsing habits, I think that the world pretty much shares the same sentiment.

And, speaking about habits, mobile browsing is and continues to play an important role for your online business. Under Google’s initiative, GoMo will test you site and answer questions about whether or not your online business has a mobile-friendly site, as well as providing you with some tips on how to make it so.

Anyway, and as usual, in no particular order:

SEO/Marketing

Blogging/Online Business (tips and tools)

Social Web/Other Stuff

Google Engage – Making Mobile Friendly Websites

That’s it! Enjoy and have a great week ahead.

Man, you have been busy haven’t you? 😉

I know speed is an issue but the only way I can really speed things up is by removing a lot of the plugins and unfortunately I’ve deleted as many as I am comfortable with.

As to the mobile content, that is one of the plugins I’ve installed. Honestly though after testing it I like the way it displays without it, but then you have to give Google what it wants right 😉

Hi Sire. good to see you here. Yep, you are so right, busy is now part of my everyday agenda 🙂 Business has been good and my portfolio of websites and clients have fortunately been increasing..

As for mobile content, well you really don’t have to give Google anything, unless you want to be in their good graces and rank you well, lol thanks for stopping by mate

I actually didn’t do it for Google. I thought there may be people out there with mobiles who would appreciate it. Apparently the plugin lets them choose how they want to view the content.
