Google Game Changer

I just received an email from Google that looks like this:

Gmail update: Reach more people you know

Ever wanted to email someone you know, but haven’t yet exchanged email addresses? Starting this week, when you’re composing a new email, Gmail will suggest your Google+ connections as recipients, even if you haven’t exchanged email addresses yet.

How it works with email addresses

Emailing Google+ connections works a bit differently to protect the privacy of email addresses. Your email address isn’t visible to your Google+ connections until you send them an email, and their email addresses are not visible to you until they respond.

Receiving email from people outside your circles

If you receive an email from someone outside your circles, it will be filtered into the Social category of the inbox (if enabled) and only after you respond or add them to your circles, can they start another conversation with you.

How to control who can contact you

You’re in control of whether people can reach you with a new setting in Gmail on the desktop. To learn more, check out the Help Center.

At first glance, you might think… “Oh, that’s nice… I can reach my friends better now….”

But considering the bigger picture… that is, the relevance of G+ as a social media platform… I’m thinking “GAME CHANGER”.

I’ve already got all kinds of ideas about how this will impact the Google’s position in the social market place. But, rather than me write about it… I’d like to hear from you. What do YOU think this will do for G+?

WordPress Categories

I recently came across a blog that wrote about using WordPress Categories. The author obviously felt that WordPress Categories were beneficial for SEO purposes. However, I am taking the opposite approach.

Before deciding who is right… is it possible that both authors have merit?

Consider a large blog with thousands of posts; imagine the clutter. Compare that to a blog of less than a thousand posts with a more focused topic.

This was the very dilemma that I recently dealt with on my company blog (aloe1). We actually chose to CHANGE OUR PERMALINKS and eliminate categories! You see, this brings the title of the article closer to the TLD and may increase the URL’s article title keyword significance (while takings a slight hit on the lack of category keywords). In our case, we felt our blog was “over-optimized” and had too many keyword occurences. Our blog reads naturally… but avoiding our keywords was difficult considering our topic!

I certainly don’t recommend many change their permalinks as we did. Doing so virtually eliminates your pages from the search engines and starts over. Also, many backlinks are lost and will require 301′s to the new URL’s. 301′s of course dilute the PR coming from those links.

Whatever you choose, it is best to make that decision BEFORE you start your blog!
