Friday Recap: Guest Bloggers Rule! Edition
What a fantastic week we had here on the blog. Huge thanks to all who participated in our “guest blogger” week here at Bruce Clay, Inc.: @AniLopez, @JoshuaTitsworth, @ShannonDowney and @HeatherLloyd. Each one of them brought a fresh voice and new perspective to the blog that we really enjoyed. Let’s start our Friday Recap with a quick roundup of guest posts, in case you happened to miss it.
- We started off the week with Ani Lopez, SEO manager and Web analytics consultant at Cardinal Path, who helped us understand a good strategy for handling multilingual sites.
- Tuesday, we welcomed SEO project manager at Click2Rank, Josh Titsworth, who talked about five must-have tactics in any SEO strategy.
- Wednesday, Shannon Downey, owner of Pivotal Production, joined us to talk about the power of Twitter as the go-to branding and relationship tool.
- Heather Lloyd-Martin, CEO of SuccessWorks SEO Copywriting, blogged for us on Thursday to offer tips on choosing in-house versus outsourced SEO copywriting.
And guess what? June’s SEO Newsletter has arrived! This month, we talk Google’s Panda 2.2; recap SMX Advanced in Seattle; explain Schema.org; and of course, all the usual Internet marketing news and updates from the past month. Read and share!
We’re not the only people talking Panda 2.2; over at Search Engine Roundtable, reports of Panda 2.2 rolling out were suspected and even some reporting signs of recoveries. Google has not officially confirmed.
Yesterday, TechCrunch announced Rebecca Black’s “Friday” video was taken off YouTube for a copyright claim by Rebecca Black. Welp, there goes my afternoon down time. [It will live forever in my heart. Everyone now, it’s Friday, Friday… –Susan]
What could be more fun than eating a hot dog? What if I told you that you could eat your hot dog in the shape of a man? But not just any man, a Happy Hot Dog Man. [The YouTube video appears to have been nuked but you can visit the official Happy Hot Dog Man website for your hot dog man fix. — Susan] If you do only one thing today, watch the video. This can’t be for real.
Oreos are far more than just late-night binge snacks; their roots go all the way back to 1912. And apparently, there are entire histories about the origin of the Oreo design. Fascinating. [The picture to the left is mostly just to make you really want an Oreo right now. Please feel free to have Oreo v Hydrox battles in the comments. Newman O’s proponents will be shown the door. –Susan]
Susan stumbled upon this: Google Places San Diego — a collection of places to visit in San Diego, and according to the links on the right-hand side of the page, one of only four cities that have this service from Google Places as of now. [Actually, I have to hat-tip Twitter for that one. –Susan]
This is a trip. Artist Chris Abbas put music to video footage of the NASA Cassini Mission in space. Whoa.
