Hi everyone! Hope you had a great and productive week. As we are getting close to yet another year, it’s time for the popular Google Zeitgeist to step in. Google #Zeitgeist2013 has just been released and although there are some surprising results, some were pretty much predictable, like the iPhone 5S and the Samsung S4. Harlem shake racked the most searched video and Nelson Mandela (may he RIP) topped the list. If you are interested in what the world searched for this year, you can view the full and detailed Google Zeitgeist of 2013 here.

Google Announces +Post Ads (beta)

Recently, Google+ announced that they are testing a new featured called +Post Ads.

+Postads is a new way for marketers to amplify their content and create conversations across the web, says Google. +Post ads let you turn your Google+ posts into engagement ads on the Google Display Network. People can join a Hangout On Air, add a comment, follow your brand, or give a +1, right from the ad. Visit +PostAds to learn more.

What do you think? Could +PostAds be a game changer in marketing/advertising? Guess we’ll have to see how it goes.

In a tweet done by Matt Cutts this week, he mentions that “they are taking action” against hundreds of buyers, dozens of sites, & dozens of spammy writers. Something to think about for 2014.

The +PostAd changes I think it could work pretty well and I’d say depending on how they work in relation to Adwords, they could be critical to 2014 Google marketing
