3 Reasons Why Google Needs to Buy Twitter in Order to Survive

November 9, 2009 - Written by Gyutae Park  

google-buy-twitter

As you know, Google is the search engine and controls an obscene amount of traffic on the web. In fact, it’s not uncommon for many users to spend at least 25% of their time online on Google properties like Gmail, Google maps, and news. With a cash cow business model (a monopoly in search advertising) and a killer brand (“google” it), Google is living large and seemingly invincible. But is this really the case? Is the Google search engine as stable as it seems?

6 Crucial Steps to Prepare Yourself for the Twitter Facebook Real-Time Search Integration

October 29, 2009 - Written by Gyutae Park  

clocksReal-time search is all the rage these days and it looks like it will only get bigger. Just last week, Microsoft Bing announced that it will be integrating both Facebook and Twitter status updates into its search results. Minutes later, Google followed suit and announced that it too will be adding Twitter updates (but not Facebook) into its SERPs. Even Yahoo is trying to get in the real-time search game.

The exact details on implementation aren’t yet clear, but it’s likely that real-time Twitter and/or Facebook updates will be added to the regular search results – particularly for breaking news and queries where articles and blog posts have not yet been written (hence “real time” search).

My Experience At ThinkThank 2009, the Hottest Internet Marketing Event of the Year

October 3, 2009 - Written by Gyutae Park  

thinktank-speeddating09Earlier this month, I had the amazing opportunity to go to ThinkTank, DK’s Internet marketing networking event on the beaches of San Diego (not to be confused with the ShareASale ThinkTank version). The invitation-only “conference” normally costs $3,000 to attend, but thanks to a contest organized by Andy Liu over at Inspired Startup, I pretty much had an all-expense paid trip there. Thanks again Andy!

To participate in Andy’s Startup Challenge contest, all you had to do was write a blog post describing your biggest challenge as a start up. I wrote about finding passion, both in yourself (as an entrepreneur) and in others (your partners), and apparently the post resonated with a lot of people. Check it out: How to Solve the Biggest Challenge For Your Online Startup Business

How to Develop an SEO Link Building Strategy That Delivers the Goods (Link Value)

September 24, 2009 - Written by Gyutae Park  

shall-not-passLinks are king when it comes to SEO. Search engines view links as votes for a site and the higher the quantity and quality of links your site has, the better your chances of ranking for related keywords in the search results (Google, Yahoo, Bing). If you know anything about SEO, you’re probably sitting there saying, “no duh”.

The problem is that not all links count for SEO purposes, and if they do, it’s always in varying degrees. Just because you see blue underlined text in your browser doesn’t mean that Google will pass over the SEO link value to the site being linked to. In fact, some links may be completely invisible to the search engines. In other cases, Google may choose to discount the value of links for whatever reason.

This is a guest post by Raza Imam, a Chicago-based marketing consultant who also owns an offshore software development company.

old-school-marketerDoctors, consultants, lawyers, and web designers all live and die by their reputations. Marketing any kind of professional service is based on relationships that are traditionally built by word of mouth and networking. In fact, every professional service provider I know spends a lot of time “pressing the flesh” and asking for referrals to build their business. Since most of these professionals have expert status in their respective industries, they work hard to promote themselves as “thought leaders” with by-lined articles, tip sheets, and corporate logos. So why not modify each of these strategies to cash in on search engine traffic online?
