All In One SEO Service to Get to The Top – Video

The idea that social media influences organic search success is still very much up in the air considering the debate between correlation and causation.

While some camps stand firmly behind Googles head of Web Spam Matt Cuttss strong assertion that the worlds leading search engine will never use social signals to dictate visibility and rankings, there are others who prefer to pay attention to the reputable studies and tests that are demonstrating a direct association between volume of social shares and premier search listings.

Regardless of what side of the aisle you standon, there is reason to believe that Social Media and Organic Search do compliment each other when integrated successfully.

From a theoretical standpoint, it is logical that search engines would consider social engagement as a specific variable that validates quality and meaningfulness of a particular online experience.

The World Wide Web is by nature a social environment that allows people from all over the world to interact with each other through the distribution of thoughts, concepts, services, and transactions. With this in mind, insisting that Google and other search engines shun social activity when it fosters and promotes dialogue, action, and reaction on behalf of online users seems counterproductive to the original intent of the Internet.

From a practical approach, there are numerous studies that demonstrate a clear cause and effect between the volume of social shares/comments a particular landing page receives and its ability to rank high on search listings, even if its only for a limited time.

I recently had the opportunity to serve as a keynote speaker at the 2014 SouthWIRED digital marketing conference in Atlanta, where I presented the concept of Social SEO and fostered a discussion on how strategists can complement their ongoing organic campaigns with social media.

Here are some of the more relevant points discussed in my presentation:

It is very important to understand why Social SEO stands to have a significant impact on Organic Search.

It is far too easy to take Google for granted as a phenomenal provider of information, services, and products and the decision maker in all arguments including, what was that actor in and where should we eat tonight?

How to Master The Art of Social SEO by @JCorriganSEO

The New Hampshire ACLU has filed a lawsuit that challenges the states ban on sharing photos of completed ballots aka ballot selfies charging that the law violates the first amendment.

There is no more potent way to communicate ones support for a candidate than to voluntarily display a photograph of ones marked ballot depicting ones vote for that candidate, the lawsuit reads.

New Hampshire has long had a law on its books banning voters from taking photos of their ballot, theoretically as a way to stop people from selling their vote. In June, the law was updated to explicitly outlaw taking a digital image or photograph of his or her marked ballot and distributing or sharing the image via social media. Violators can be punished up to $1000.

(Massachusetts has a similar anti-ballot selfie law on its books, although it rarely if ever has been enforced.)

The law went into place Sept. 1 before the New Hampshires primary elections, and at least three people have already been investigated by the states attorney general for sharing photos of their ballot on Twitter and Facebook. One of those photo-takers, former police officer Andrew Langlois, shared a picture of his ballot in which he wrote-in the name of his deceased dog Akira as his Republican choice for the US Senate.

Another violator, state Representative Leon Rideout of Lancaster, took a ballot selfie and shared it to Twitter to make a statement, he told the Nashua Telegraph.

Langlois, Rideout, and another politician are named as plaintiffs in the ACLU lawsuit, which argues that their ballot selfies were political speech and therefore protected by the first amendment.

What this law ignores is that displaying a photograph of a marked ballot on the Internet is a powerful form of political speech that conveys various constitutionally-protected messages that have no relationship to vote buying or voter coercion, the lawsuit reads.

$100 of free bitcoin offered to MIT students through Bitcoin Project comes as cryptocurrency markets slide(IBTimes UK)

Following a brief upturn on Monday 27 October, bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies have taken a significant slide over the last 24 hours.

Bitcoin, dogecoin, peercoin, namecoin and darkcoin all fell by between 4% and 5% since yesterday, with only litecoin faring marginally better with a 2% price fall.

Despite the market-wide downturn, several digital currencies did see some positive movement. The biggest mover was titcoin, which saw its value surge by more than 360%.

One of a handful of cryptocurrenies designed for the porn and adult entertainment industry, titcoin now has a market capitalisation of around $90,000 (56,000).

Students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have become eligible to receive their share of a bitcoin fund worth around half a million dollars.

The MIT Bitcoin Project is offering undergraduates $100 worth of bitcoin in return for completing a surveybefore 2 November.

Students Dan Elitzer and Jeremy Rubin raised the money for the project, and they received donations from university alumni and members of the bitcoin community.

Rubin said: “Giving students access to cryptocurrencies is analogous to providing them with internet access at the dawn of the internet era.”

Former chairman of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Arthur Levitt is to join bitcoin payment processing firm BitPay and bitcoin exchange Vaurum.

Cryptocurrency Round-Up: MIT Students Claim Free Bitcoin Amid Market-Wide Dive

Cryptocurrency is the name given to a system that uses cryptography to allow the secure transfer and exchange of digital tokens in a distributed and decentralised manner. These tokens can be traded at market rates for fiat currencies. The first cryptocurrency was Bitcoin, which began trading in January 2009. Since then, many other cryptocurrencies have been created employing the same innovations that Bitcoin introduced, but changing some of the specific parameters of their governing algorithms. The two major innovations that Bitcoin introduced, and which made cryptocurrencies possible, were solutions to two long-standing problems in computer science: the double-spending problem and the Byzantine Generals Problem.

Until the invention of Bitcoin, it was impossible for two parties to transact electronically without employing a trusted third party intermediary. The reason was a conundrum known to computer scientists as the double spending problem, which has plagued attempts to create electronic cash since the dawn of the Internet.

To understand the problem, first consider how physical cash transactions work. The bearer of a physical currency note can hand it over to another person, who can then verify that he is the sole possessor of that note by simply looking at his hands. For example, if Alice hands Bob a $100 bill, Bob now has it and Alice does not. Bob can easily verify his possession of the $100 bill and, implicitly, that Alice no longer has it. Physical cash transfers are also final, in the sense that to reverse a transaction the new bearer must give back the currency note. In our example, Bob would have to hand the $100 bill back to Alice. Given all of these properties, cash makes it possible for different parties, including strangers, to transact without trusting each other.

Now, consider how electronic cash might work. Obviously, paper notes would be out of the picture. There would have to be some kind of digital representation of currency. Essentially, instead of a $100 bill, we might imagine a $100 computer file. When Alice wants to send $100 to Bob, she attaches a $100 file to a message and sends it to him. The problem, as anyone who has sent an email attachment knows, is that sending a file does not delete it from ones computer. Alice will retain a perfect digital copy of the $100 she sends Bob, and this would allow her to spend the same $100 a second time, or indeed a third and fourth. Alice could promise to Bob that she will delete the file once he has a copy, but Bob has no way to verify this without trusting Alice.

Until recently, the only way to overcome the double spending problem was to employ a trusted third party intermediary. In our example, both Alice and Bob would have an account with a third party that they each trust, such as PayPal. Trusted intermediaries like PayPal keep a ledger of all account balances and transactions. When Alice wants to send $100 to Bob, she tells PayPal, which in turn deducts the amount from her account and adds it to Bobs. The transaction reconciles to zero. Alice cannot spend the same $100, and Bob relies on PayPal, which he trusts, to verify this. At the end of the day, all transfers among all accounts reconcile to zero. Note, however, that unlike cash, transactions that involve a third party intermediary are not final, as we have defined it, because transactions can be reversed by the third party.

Like PayPal, the Bitcoin system employs a ledger, which is called the block chain. All transactions in the Bitcoin economy are recorded and reconciled in the block chain. However, unlike PayPals ledger, the block chain is not maintained by a central authority. Instead, the block chain is a public document that is distributed in a peer-to-peer fashion across thousands of nodes in the Bitcoin network. New transactions are checked against the block chain to ensure that the same bitcoins have not been previously spent, but the work of verifying new transactions is not done by any one trusted third party. Instead, the work is distributed among thousands of users who contribute their computing capacity to reconcile and maintain the block chain ledger. In essence, the whole peer-to-peer network takes the place of the one trusted third party.

Bitcoins solution to the double spending problem distributing the ledger among the thousands of nodes in a peer-to-peer network presents another problem. If every node on the network has a complete copy of the ledger that they share with the peers to which they connect, how does a new node connecting to the network know that she is not being given a falsified copy of the ledger? How does an existing node know that she is not getting falsified updates to the ledger? The difficult task of reaching consensus among distributed parties who do not trust each other is another longstanding problem in the computer science literature known as the Byzantine Generals Problem, which Bitcoin also elegantly solved.

The Byzantine Generals Problem posits that a number of generals each have their armies camped outside a city that they have surrounded. The generals know that their numbers are large enough that if half their combined force attacks at the same time they will take the city, but if they do not attack at the same time they will be spread too thinly and will be defeated. They can only communicate via messenger, and they have no way of verifying the authenticity of the messages being relayed. They also suspect that some of the generals in their ranks are traitors who will send fake messages along to their peers. How can this large group come to a consensus on the time of attack without employing trust and without a central authority, especially when there will likely be attempts to confuse them with fake messages?

In essence, this is the same problem faced by Bitcoins miners, the specialised nodes that verify new transactions and add them to the distributed ledger. Bitcoins solution is to require additions to the ledger to be accompanied by the solution to a mathematical problem that is very difficult to solve but simple to verify. (This is much like calculating prime factors; costly to do, but easy to check.) New transactions are broadcast in a peer-to-peer fashion across the network by parties to those transactions. Miners look at those transactions and confirm by checking their copy of the ledger (the block chain) that they are not double-spends. If they are legitimate transactions, miners add them to a queue of new transactions that they would like to add as a new page in the ledger (a new block in the block chain). While they are doing this, they are simultaneously trying to solve a mathematical problem in which all previous blocks in the block chain are an input. The miner that successfully solves the problem broadcasts his solution to the problem along with the new block to be added to the block chain. The other miners can easily verify whether the solution to the problem is correct, and if it is they add that new block to their copy of the block chain. The process begins anew with the new block chain as an input of the problem to be solved for the next block.

The mathematical problem in question takes an average of 10 minutes to solve. This is key because the important thing is not the solution itself, but that the solution proves that the miner has expended 10 minutes of work. On average, a new block is added to the block chain every 10 minutes because the problem that miners must solve takes on average 10 minutes to solve. However, if more miners join the network, or if computing power improves, the average time between blocks will decrease. To maintain the rate at which blocks are added to six per hour, the difficulty of the problem is adjusted every 2016 blocks (every two weeks). Again, the key here is to ensure that each block takes about 10 minutes to discover.

cryptocurrency : The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics

Ever since Web addresses started appearing in print, its been tempting to lop the “www” off to make the URL easier to remember and to use.

Does it matter if you do that? Is a www address better for SEO? If a viewer uses www, will the page show up differently than if they dont?

Though the “does www matter” question can spark holy wars, in general nothing bad will happen whether visitors type in www or leave it off. But there are things you should handle with care, lest your SEO campaign suffer.

When you register a domain name, you register example.com, not http://www.example.com. Thats because the www part of the URL is actually considered a subdomain, much like blog.example.com, login.example.com, etc. The www largely is a carryover from the days of the Internet when you had to specify that you were using a World Wide Web site and not something like gopher or ftp.

While most of the time typing http://www.example.com and example.com will take users to the same place, they are technically different URLs that could be set up to display different content.

Now for the bad news. When it comes to domains, Google practices whats called canonicalization, the process of selecting a “preferred domain” URL that best represents the site. If the site owner doesnt choose one, Google will decide which URL to index.

If Google picks http://example.com but all your links point to http://www.example.com, then the fruits of your efforts are being diluted, causing a disadvantage to your SEO campaign.

Thankfully, you can choose a preferred domain rather than leaving it to chance. Log in to Google Webmaster Toolsand follow these steps:

If you built your site without selecting a preferred domain, any links to your non-preferred domain wont benefit your preferred one from an SEO perspective, unless your non-preferred one redirects to the corresponding preferred version using a 301 redirect.

A 301 redirect is the HTTP status code for when a page has been moved permanently to a new location or URL.

NSA Spying On Computers Not Connected To Internet 1-17-14

NSA Spying On Computers Not Connected To Internet 1-17-14 – Video

Just a few weeks ago, oil painters in eastern Beijings Songzhuang art district had welcomed foreign reporters into their studios to show off their works tackling such touchy subjects as Chinas prisons and Communist Party politics.

Over lunch, they candidly lamented the state of free speech in China while chewing on chicken and downing glasses of beer.

In a tightly controlled society where dissent is quickly quashed, the artists of Songzhuang appeared to be enjoying a rarely seen degree of creative and political freedom. But then, on Oct. 1, that illusion was shattered.

Police first detained poet Wang Zang after he posted a picture and message on Twitter supporting democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong. The next day, police rounded up another seven people who were heading to a poetry reading advertised on social media as supporting Hong Kong protesters. A total of 13 people living or working in the art colony were ultimately detained on charges of creating trouble, according to Wang Zangs wife, Wang Li.

This past weekend, the police buildup was everywhere, with uniformed officers patrolling the aisles of Songzhuangs art shops and riding in golf carts through its sleepy winding streets. Artists who weeks earlier had opened their studio doors wide were apologetically warning away visitors, fearful that speaking too freely could get them into trouble.

Since Songzhuang was founded two decades ago, its artists have largely avoided official harassment by following a few tacit rules: If they produced provocative work, they showed it only to each other, and if they sold it, they did so privately. Most importantly, they kept a low profile.

Painter Tang Jianying, known as one of Songzhuangs most outspoken artists, said his neighbors had crossed that line by taking their dissent to the Internet.

Among friends, we can speak freely, Tang said by phone hours after police had called to check in on him. But if youre in public, you have to watch what you do. If youre on the web and you speak too freely, theyll get you.

Although Chinas Constitution promises free speech rights, in reality, figuring out what you can say or write has always been a guessing game.

Authorities have in recent months tolerated grass-roots protests on environmental issues but at the same time, violently cracked down on Muslim Uighurs in the countrys far west Xinjiang region who have denounced the central governments policies on minorities.

Staying anonymous online could get a lot simpler with Anonabox, a pocket-sized networking device due to launch early next year.

The $51 device plugs into any standard Internet router and pipes all traffic through the Tor network. The traffic then moves through multiple computers on Tors network, erasing its tracks along the way, before finally hitting the open Internet. The result is an anonymous and encrypted connection straight out of the box.

While Tor already offers a Web browser for this purpose, extending Tors capabilities to other programs requires a complicated setup process. Even opening an attachment from Tor can create risk, as the outside program could connect to the Internet without keeping the user anonymous. By plugging directly into the router, Anonabox promises to anonymize all Internet activity regardless of what program youre using.

Why this matters: Between overreaching government data collection in the United States, censorship in other countries and the rise of the darknet, theres a huge demand for products that hide their users online activities. Anonabox is hitting all the right notes at just the right time, with a low-cost product thats supposedly easy to use and to conceal. That may explain why the Kickstarter campaign is nearing $300,000 as of this writingfar beyond Anonaboxs $7,500 goal.

As Wired points out, Anonabox is not the first device of its kind. Devices like Torouter and Portal require technical know-how to replace a routers stock software, while OnionPi arrives as a kit that must be assembled by the user. Anonaboxs closest competitor is SafePlug, a $49 device that plugs into any router, but its larger and potentially less secure. By comparison, Anonabox is small enough to conceal in a pants pocket, and the creators promise to test and configure each unit by hand to make sure theyre working properly.

For now, the Tor community isnt giving a full endorsement, though Tors executive director Andrew Lewman told Wired that the device looks promising. Micah Lee, lead technologist for The Intercept, suggested that users still fire up the Tor browser in conjunction with the box, as it avoids fingerprinting techniques that other browsers use to track individuals around the Web.

Given that this is a Kickstarter project, potential buyers need to reserve some skepticism as well. However, the creators note that the product is already fully functional and ready for large-scale production, with backup vendors in place. At a glance, it seems like a well-organized campaign, and a potentially valuable tool for protestors, privacy paranoids and Internet miscreants alike.

Anonabox promises a portable, streamlined way to use Tor to hide your online tracks
