Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great week. While it seems a bit early, some search engines have started to reveal their list of top searches for 2012. Bing released their 2012 report recently, and this week Yahoo revealed their Year-In-Review. Google, which usually releases its Google Zeitgeist insights, has not yet updated the information, but stay tuned because I’m sure it will be out soon. Zeitgeist is my favorite due to the way its organized. Anyway, one reason I like looking at these reports is because it provides some useful data that you can use to generate blog posts ideas, launch niche sites, among other things. Quite useful, specially if you are an affiliate marketer. In any event, it can satisfy your curiosity of what the world is searching for.

On the social side of things, Google+ recently made some improvements by launching the Google+ Communities, a feature that helps you find people who are into the same things you are. You can share news, ideas and passions with just the right people, or meet some new ones by joining public communities. Communities can be set public or private, depending on what you have in mind. Here’s a nice write-up about it. Have you created or joined some communities yet? Do you find any value with this new app?

Lastly, Pinterest, due to its increasing popularity, have started to “remove” the crap on their network this week. This post from MarketingLand.com gives some good info about the clean-up. Interesting is this part of the post that mentions a blurb from Mashable.com, saying:

According to Mashable, several large brands and other popular Pinterest accounts are losing hundreds of thousands of followers in the aftermath of Pinterest’s anti-spam measure this week.

What do you make of that?

As usual, in no particular order:

SEO/Inbound Marketing

Content Marketing/Small Business Bites

Social Web/Other Roundups and Cool Stuff

Why do paid links violate Google’s guidelines while other ads don’t?

That’s it! Enjoy and have a great weekend.

awesome site, thanks for posting, although experience counts a lot in transposing what you see, having sites like these as inspiration is always a plus, keep em coming.

This site was a nice surprise, and I hadn’t even heard of this “google zeitgiest” thing until reading your article. I will definitely have to check that out. Thanks a bunch for writing this.
