Google’s New Privacy Policy under One Roof

Google has updated its privacy policy in a way that breaks down product silos, but allows the search giant to mine data across all of its services. In a blog post, Google outlined the changes. These changes are good in many respects. Companies everywhere want to break down product walls to get a 360 degree view of customers. The difference with Google is reach and it is actually succeeding. In short, Google is:

1) Making its privacy policies easier to read.


2) Aggregating data across products for Google and user experience.


3) Arguing that it’s easier to take your data and go somewhere else.


Coming 1st March, Google is collapsing its more than 60 different product-specific privacy policies and terms of service into one overhauled, streamlined document that more accurately reflects the search giant’s priorities. The shift in policy came up as Google worked to revamp a confusing maze of privacy policies for each service. The search giant did away with all those policies, replacing them with a single set of rules to govern all the data it collects. From Google’s point of view, this will serve to make the Web more relevant, its chief objective.


But still for many web users, this caused a bit of shock between work and personal uses. Here’s how this boils down:


The good: Anything that simplifies privacy policies makes sense—even if you may not agree with them. Google has more than 60 privacy documents today. That will be boiled down to one privacy policy.


The bad: Unified user experience aside, it was kind of nice to have my YouTube personas different from say, Gmail and Google+. Philosophically it makes sense. Emotionally I’m not so sure I’m on board the one for all approach.


The scary: Google will know more about you than your wife does. Everything across your screens will be integrated and tracked. Google noted that it collects information you provide, data from your usage, device information and location. Unique applications are also noted. Google is watching you as long as you are logged in. It’s also unclear whether this privacy policy move will be considered bundling in some way by regulators.


I’ll be curious to watch the discourse on Google’s new privacy policy and terms of service between now and the March 1st implementation. What about you? Leave your comment and feedback.

Facebook Comments Box Plugin Goes Mobile

Facebook has launched a mobile version of its comments box social plugin, which websites and blogs can use to let people comment using their Facebook profiles.

One of the cool things about the comments box plugin itself is that it threads the conversation through your blog as well as the user’s Facebook wall.


“The Comments Box for mobile is the latest update to the plugin to make commenting more social and authentic, improve the quality of conversations online, and drive traffic and engagement to media sites,” Facebook said in a blog post. “For example, in December we added a Subscribe link in the plugin next to the names of people who’ve turned on Subscribe to help them grow their Subscriber base. You can learn more about adding the Comments Box to your site, and best practices for implementation here.”


“We’re continuing to see media sites of all sizes add the Comments Box, including the York Daily Record (York, PA), The USA Today Science Fair blog, and Gannett sites such as The Statesman Journal (Salem, OR), Burlington Free Press (Burlington, VT), and Detroit Free Press,” the company said.


They’re making things pretty easy for those publications looking to implement it on their mobile sites. If you use the plugin on the desktop version of your site, it will automatically appear on the mobile version of your site as well. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

New Google Algorithm Changes

We understand that people wants to know how search works. Google has been making a big deal about wanting to be more transparent about its search algorithm. With a control over revealing all the secrets of course, Google has been doing a great job with plenty of algorithm announcements. Recently, the company announced many of the subtler algorithmic and visible feature changes.

Here is the recent list of changes:

Related query results refinements
Sometimes we fetch results for queries that are similar to the actual search you type. This change makes it less likely that these results will rank highly if the original query had a rare word that was dropped in the alternate query. For example, if you are searching for [rare red widgets], you might not be as interested in a page that only mentions “red widgets.”

More comprehensive indexing
This change makes more long-tail documents available in our index, so they are more likely to rank for relevant queries.

New “parked domain” classifier
This is a new algorithm for automatically detecting parked domains. Parked domains are placeholder sites that are seldom useful and often filled with ads. They typically don’t have valuable content for our users, so in most cases we prefer not to show them.

More autocomplete predictions
With autocomplete, we try to strike a balance between coming up with flexible predictions and remaining true to your intentions. This change makes our prediction algorithm a little more flexible for certain queries, without losing your original intention.

Fresher and more complete blog search results
We made a change to our blog search index to get coverage that is both fresher and more comprehensive.
Original content
We added new signals to help us make better predictions about which of two similar web pages is the original one.

Live results for Major League Soccer and the Canadian Football League
This change displays the latest scores & schedules from these leagues along with quick access to game recaps and box scores

SEO for Your Facebook Page

It might be something new to you that your Facebook page is getting indexed by search engines. It helps your customers find your page when they use Google or any other search engines which is very important for your business reputation.

But more than that, search engine optimization for your Facebook page is not something new for you to learn. If you have been doing SEO for your website, the same rules apply to your Facebook page. It is important to start with your keywords, or the search terms that you want to target. Then create content for these keywords.


The only difference is that there are some places within a Facebook page that are more SEO-friendly than others. Today’s post is based on what to do effectively to push your Facebook page up search engine rankings:


Use business name in Custom URL and Custom Tabs
Search engine spiders put a premium on your custom URL, page title and tab title, so be sure to use your business names in all these places. Your customers are going to try and find you using your business name, so promote it like crazy.


Use your Info and About us Tabs
It is within your Info and About Us tabs that you talk about your business and tell people where to find your website, your physical store and just about anything about you and your business. Make sure that you include keywords and search terms in your copy for these two tabs. Refrain from using images as these images are not going to be indexed by search engines!


Mind your Custom Tabs
The truth is that even your wall posts are getting indexed on search engines, but it is temporary. Yet, you should still write your wall posts with SEO in mind. Better yet, take time to create SEO friendly custom tabs. Use your keywords in your headings, bold them in the body of your copy, and include your keywords in titles.


Link Building
With the Panda update, a lot of “experts” are saying that link building is no longer important when it comes to getting higher rankings on search engine. That is simply not true. Even for your Facebook page, getting quality links from different sources is very important to help it ranks well on search engines. Search engine spiders use incoming links to your tabs and Facebook page to gauge just how important and authoritative your page is.


SEO for your Videos and Photos!
Video titles are very important because search engines give it a whole lot of importance. Insert your keywords to a relevant video; put your business name as the file name of your company logo, use filenames that reflect what is in the image or video that you are posting.

Multi-Admin for Google+ Pages ‘Coming Soon’

Google+ will allow multiple admins to manage a brand page “before 2012,” Kristoffer Sorensen, a Google marketing strategist, said on in a live Q&A on Wednesday.

Currently, brand pages are tied to one admin account that has total control over the page and profile. This has been a point of frustration for social media managers who have multiple team members updating their company social profiles.


Until two weeks ago, when Google gave select third-party apps early access to the Google+ API, the only solution was for a team to share one login or for one person to maintain the Google+ page alone. These situations are less than ideal because they can cause security and workflow issues. When the social media management tools in the pilot program integrated Google+ posting, companies not using these tools were still at a loss. Even some social managers using one of the six select services with Google+ are struggling as they wait for the early Google+ API to iron out some kinks.


Sorensen and his team addressed other popular feature requests in the live Q&A. While scheduled posting and events integration seem to be up in the air, the Google reps said analytics, widely-available Hangouts on Air and mobile page management are in the works.

Effects of Fresh Content for Small Business SEO

Most people Google to find products they are looking for, and Google’s pushes fresh content, only those businesses with new content make the cut to get on the first page. This becomes a real challenge for some really high quality but small businesses out there. Big companies know all about managing search engine optimization; they have the staff to deal with and get the company noticed. However, small business search engine optimization has become an even greater challenge with the latest updates to Google’s search algorithms.

In 2010, Google released an update dubbed “Caffeine” which sought to deliver faster and more accurate results from the increasingly complex and demanding search environment. While technically providing faster, more comprehensive, and more accurate results, the indexing system had little effect on small business search optimization.


The latest update, however, may prove to be a bit more of a challenge. The goal of this ranking update is to provide fresher content on time-sensitive topics. The search algorithm is supposed to be designed to differentiate between content that needs to be as fresh as possible, and content that is less time-sensitive. Google says this “fresh” content algorithm will affect approximately 35% of searches. Under the new update, a person searching “Olympics” will be given results for the Olympics that are right around the corner, not those from 50 years ago. Content may be only minutes old, and will be listed in order of occurrence.


While all businesses need to be aware of the effect of “fresh” results on small business search engine optimization, it would appear that businesses dealing with rapidly changing technology would be the most affected by the change. Big businesses have more financial leverage and staff to be able to get content out in the front pages of search results. Small businesses need to be aware of the trend and find efficient means of getting fresh content so that they can be front-page news as well.
