WebP: Google’s new attempt at speeding up the web

By Garett Rogers | October 3, 2010, 9:26am PDT

In their latest attempt to make the web even faster, Google has devised their own image format  to rival JPEG. Since forever, JPEG has been doing a great job of compressing photographic images — it doesn’t support transparency, like other formats, but it does what it was meant to do very well.

Google’s CEO: ‘The Laws Are Written by Lobbyists’

Oct 1 2010, 11:58 AM ET 30

“The average American doesn’t realize how much of the laws are written by lobbyists” to protect incumbent interests, Google CEO Eric Schmidt told Atlantic editor James Bennet at the Washington Ideas Forum. “It’s shocking how the system actually works.”

In a wide-ranging interview that spanned human nature, the future of machines, and how Google could have helped the stimulus, Schmidt said technology could “completely change the way government works.”

“Washington is an incumbent protection machine,” Schmidt said. “Technology is fundamentally disruptive.” Mobile phones and personal technology, for example, could be used to record the bills that members of Congress actually read and then determine what stimulus funds were successfully spent.

Marketing Updates

Internet marketing has taken on a whole new angle with the introduction of smart phones such as the Apple iPhone and Google’s Android.

The power of internet marketing through mobile phones is the fact that you get your message through to people in the moment they are thinking casually about something. If they are thinking, lets eat, where is a restaurant, they see your ad on their phone, click, and you make money. If they are thinking about losing weight while they walk along the beach, they see your ad on their phone, click and you make money.

Apple just sold over 2 million more iPhones, and Google says their customers are activating 160,000 Droid smart phones a day!

Social Media Secrets

Traffic is what a successful marketing campaign is all about.  If you have a website (or a blog, video, or web 2.0 page), the continuous creation of one way backlinks will grow the authority of your business overtime.  In this business consistency WINS the battle.

Out of all the traffic strategies attracting organic search engine traffic (i.e. FREE TRAFFIC) should obviously be of interest to you!  Since it is free and your potential customers tend to trust the authority a search engine assigns to your website – especially if it appears on Google Page 1.

One of the main strategies to get your site “discovered” (indexed) by the Search Engies is to utilize Social Media sites and Social Bookmarking. These strategies will maximize the exposure of your website and offers – to make More Money Online!

To maximize your results, you can not settle for just one Social Media or Social Bookmarking site, you need to use a strategy that includes a good sized selection and combination of Social Media and Social Bookmarking properties.

When you launch a new website, you need to do something to call the attention of the search engines to crawl and index it, and finally give it a place in the search results (rank it!). If you build a website and don’t drive attention to it, you are not going to have any organic traffic at all.  You need to make sure you have the best possible visibility for your website.

So, to keep calling Google’s attention to your website, we want to make sure we are adding backlinks to it on a regular basis month after month after month.  People often ask us “when do you stop promoting a website?”  Our answer is “We only stop promoting a website when we want to stop making money from it!” Remember the word of the day: Consistency!

This consistent effort will show Google that you truly care about what you are promoting. Not only will you maintain your rankings – they will grow over time as a result.  Website aging is one of the factors that affect Google ranks (Google LOVES crusty old domains!)

If you have a niche website and you are not receiving consistent traffic, pay attention to your marketing and promotion efforts. Usually, the main reason for limited success is lack of the right promotion and the lack of consistency.

Also understand that when we talk about promotion, we are talking at the page level. You must promote your websites page by page and keyword by keyword.  And, you must build a Web 2.0 campaign around every long tail keyword relevant to your niche…And that is just the beginning of what it really takes to make real and consistent money online!

Most people understand the importance of one way links to their websites and Web 2.0 properties to get them to RANK. But, what many of them miss, or find out the hard way, is that one way links are not enough. One of the most important strategies to use is to promote the promoters (the social media sites). This type of strategy must be spread out over time, and you will see these pages rank!

To bookmark a website is an ongoing project.  You only stop promoting when you don’t want any more traffic (and when you stop wanting to make money!).  The way we look at it is: if you don’t care enough to continue promoting your websites on a regular basis, why would you expect Google to keep paying attention to you?

This type of an internet marketing strategy requires a lot of work and time. These days to have a real business, you need to leverage your time. There is a limit to how much a business can grow with the effort of a “single man army”.

We take the pain and work out of a Social Media campaign by creating and implementing a search and response type campaign instead of just posting social comments which can consume your time and give little or no results plus automating your Social Bookmarking campaign to leverage your time so you can concentrate your efforts on your business.

So if you are ready for a successful internet marketing campaign contact Skunkworks Marketing Solutions now and position your business as a leader in the industry.

Article Marketing-Google Page 1 Ranking

If you have a web site, then let’s face it, search engine marketing and building web links are important to you! One important aspect of search engine marketing involves using high quality, interesting, informative content articles. Search engines love content & information articles and many people will read and link to articles that are interesting and informative for topics they are interested in. Content articles are an unbeatable way to generate links, boost your search engine rankings, find new sales prospects and open up a flood of targeted traffic direct to your web site.

Content articles are an essential part of search engine marketing and when done properly they can have a tremendously positive and long term effect to your web site business! Effective article marketing is an investment in your business!

It’s true… Writing an article takes more than a couple of minutes. It comes easily for some people but it can be downright painful for others. Cutting corners and using the same articles that others have submitted to the search engines and directories will not get you anywhere. Many other written articles are void of any real information or useful content. Still others are simply loaded up with keywords and keyword phrases… not to mention the fact that they are boring and uninteresting.

These types of articles are the fastest way to the trash can from a reader point of view and ultimately from a search engine point of view. The end result for these types of content articles is GIGO. That’s right GIGO! Garbage in – Garbage out! You can’t do an inferior job and then expect to get better or superior results. Additionally, you can’t expect to get people to want to read, link-to and circulate an article that is poorly written, full of mistakes, lacking content and largely neglecting to provide any new or useful information to the reader.
