Well this was getting the rounds heavy in the dojo the other daty and well this sums up just how pervasive Personal Search is. Goes beyond Cookies is at least IP aware, specially if you have any Google account… and other than my brother I don’t know anyone who doesn’t.
Google Social Strategy:
Fails miserably because it’s now creating “the follower economy” to replace “the link economy” it created with the same reckless abandon it did with PageRank! Talk about head in the sand!
Universal Search:Real Time Search
So this was the best part for me! I get to use a song by Matthew Good, because we all know his is the epitome of rediculous Twitter following. Follows 2 and has 800,000 + followers. As I’ve said earlier Google’s decision to use followers shows just how misguided they are telling eveyone their algo is dumb as a fencepost and based on wonky Social premises dismissed years ago.
And the beauty part is the vid uses Matthew’s Last Parade as the music for a tribute to the great Mats Sundin, in my books second only to Davie Keon as the greatest to where the glorious Blue and White! So I have now scored a hat trick combining my favorite Hockey palyer, my current favorite song and as always my first love SEO or as we now call it Website positioning because SEO is Dead!
