Internet Marketing Podcast
Chris: Hi! And welcome to the SEO Podcast Unknown Secrets of Internet Marketing.
Paul: What’s up everybody? Welcome back. Another fun-filled Friday of internet marketing information.
Chris: Do you know what podcast this is?
Chris: Close. 11X. It’s 110. This is podcast number 110. You’re listening to the most popular SEO podcast on iTunes. That is because of you, because you guys follow us, tweet us and I guess ultimately listen.
Chris: Well, that’s what makes us the most popular, right?
Paul: I hope so. I hope they’re listening.
Chris: You can follow us, E- — excuse me, Facebook.com/ewebstyle, Twitter.com/ewebstyle, YouTube.com/ewebstyle, and you can actually watch the video of this podcast like on Friday mornings broadcast somewhere between 9:15 and 9:45 start time on Friday morning Central Standard Time. All you need to do is go to E-Webstyle.com/seopodcast. By the way, my name is Chris Burres, owner of E-Webstyle.
Paul: Paul Hanson, what’s up y’all?
Chris: As usual, we have a tip from our previous podcast and our tip from our previous podcast is include links to valuable information in your social media interactions. We’re talking about social media in podcast 109 and one of the important things that came out there, there were some statistics I think that most tweets or Facebook —
Paul: Like 50% I think of our — at least 50% of all Facebook posts have links.
Paul: At least.
Chris: At least. And we didn’t have any statistics on which one actually get viewed or clicked. We’re just assuming they get clicked because we click them.
Chris: You were saying that’s the only thing —
Paul: I just scroll through like I look for pictures and links basically.
Paul: Videos, pictures, and links and you just post them like I don’t care.
Chris: I’ve got better — I can’t read. I don’t have time to read. A picture is worth a thousand words.
Paul: Make me laugh. Thank you.
Chris: Here from our Facebook page by Aric Boyles and that’s spelled with an A, A-R-I-C. “I love your show. I learn a lot and you guys crack me up every episode. Thanks for the free edutainment. I’ll post a review soon on iTunes.” That’s actually 19 hours ago.
Paul: That’s what’s up.
Chris: Look how on top of it we are. That’s pretty impressive. Thank you, Aric. A punch in the face to you. I’ve got a question from Dean Calhoun. It’s really complex and hopefully we won’t get to it.
Paul: Oh, look at that we’re out of time. Thanks for…
Chris: Amazing how that works. All right. We had Jeff Moskovitz actually posted a review on iTunes. Whoo-hoo! We’re always excited about that. The title is “If this is the only podcast you ever listen to…” Five stars. Five stars.
Chris: That’s what’s up. “You should consider downloading more podcasts. Seriously, these guys have found a way to produce consistently great content in the most entertaining way just by being themselves. Listening to this cast is like eating healthy food that actually has taste.”
Paul: That’s what’s up.
Chris: That’s kind of cool.
Paul: We’re sorry to disappoint — this is not actually how we really are.
Paul: We put on a front for the podcast.
Chris: Yeah. We’re like boring, like you can’t even imagine, like this one second —
Paul: It would be interesting if that — like if people were like people you see that you think are really interesting like actors and stuff are really just weirdos.
Chris: Well, you see people — I don’t know if you’ve ever been around — I don’t know — a show or something and the example I think of is like Patrick I’ve been when he’s around TV and, you know. He was just chatting. We were driving to a radio station and I forgot to bring the camera because he wanted some pictures in the studio, and he was freaking out about the camera. And in my head I’m like, “If I were just about to be on the radio in the fourth largest city in the country —
Paul: I’d be freaking out about being on the radio.
Chris: — I’d be thinking about the radio, not the fact that I don’t have my camera and I’m not going to have pictures.” And so people are just — there’s a switch for some people that when they get on stage or get in front, it’s all on. And also we — oh, I got to remind everyone out there, we are your friendly local neighborhood top position snatchers where our mantra is “Don’t be a douche.” Hey, anybody play around with that Google Doodle?
Paul: Yes. They got me for at least 15, 20 minutes. It was late — early — early Thursday morning.
Chris: If only we had a good memory and we could remind everyone how much time they estimated we spent on that Pacman —
Paul: Oh, man, it was like —
Paul: — a couple of weeks total like —
Chris: Across the planet.
Paul: Yeah, it was like a week or maybe two weeks of production that was just lost. Thanks, Google. That was awesome though.
Chris: Yeah. And —
Paul: Bring it back.
Chris: Bring back the — that was — was that Ms. Pacman or just Pacman? 0:05:14
Paul: It was Pacman. It was the 25th I think anniversary of Pacman I believe.
Chris: Wow! Who didn’t play Pac — well…
Paul: Thank you.
Chris: Maybe a lot of —
Paul: I still play Pacman, my favorite game of all time.
Chris: Do you have an arcade or you just play it?
Paul: I have the little stick that you plug into your –
Chris: Oh, it’s just the stick —
Paul: It’s just a stick. You plug it into your TV directly and you play.
Chris: That’s cool. Well, there is actually like 4,000 recordings of using the Google Doodle that went on YouTube, another Google product. And so Google has extended the Google Doodle until Friday, yeah.
Paul: I saw a post where a guy says, “Watch, someone is going to take a bunch of snippets of people’s recordings, put it on YouTube, and make a band.” Watch, that’s going to happen.
Chris: The famous Google Doodle band.
Chris: Here’s an interesting question. Apple just released an upgrade called the Lion, right? It’s like a new upgrade like from Windows 7 to —
Paul: From like the upgrade of leopard?
Paul: Snow Leopard?
Chris: Snow leopard, yeah. How much do you think it costs?
Paul: Fifty bucks. I don’t know how much the software is.
Chris: Well, like an upgrade is typically 100 and something dollars for Microsoft. Thirty bucks.
Paul: Wow! That’s what’s up.
Chris: Thirty bucks to upgrade. Yeah, they’re really —
Paul: It should be. I mean I paid $3,000 for the computer so…
Chris: Exactly, yeah
Paul: Better be.
Chris: I actually agree with that. So it’s actually another thing that Mac users can sell over Microsoft, right? Like, hey, you’re going to — or PCs. When you go out and you get — you’re running a Microsoft operating system and they come out with a new upgrade and you’re dropping 175 or 300 bucks and go, “Yeah, it’s only 30 bucks.” In fact, 30 bucks is five license upgrades.
Paul: Oh, that’s what’s up.
Chris: So it’s like the family plan.
Paul: That’s very cool. And I’m seeing stuff that Microsoft is talking about 8 already.
Chris: Yeah. 7 just came out.
Chris: I mean like — really?
Paul: 8 is already coming out.
Chris: So for 400 bucks you can have the latest and greatest until the next day.
Paul: You can have the latest and greatest garbage. I use 7 so that’s what’s up.
Chris: 7 is pretty good. I’m pretty impressed with it. Pandora — you listen to Pandora?
Paul: A little bit.
Chris: They had an IPO, $200 million. That’s enough about that one. There’s somebody who is incorporating tweets into the classroom. You were a teacher, right?
Paul: Yes, I was teaching for three years.
Chris: Can you imagine — I know you’re not the biggest Twitter proponent on the planet.
Paul: Not really.
Chris: Can you imagine bringing in tweets in — like how would you bring tweets in —
Paul: I can’t imagine anything of value unless you’re following people of somewhat importance like the president, politician, use that of importance loosely with politicians.
Chris: Well, yeah, you could be following Mr. Weiner and all of his tweets. That will get your classroom shut down.
Chris: Well, apparently —
Paul: Oh, class, there’s the dickpick. Sorry.
Chris: Teacher, what’s a dickpick? It’s like that — did you see the MTV Music Awards?
Chris: They have a new category called like the Best One-liner or something and the little girl says, “I want to get chocolatey wasted.”
Paul: Oh, yes, along that line.
Chris: So apparently, the Twitter that they’re trying to use in class, the tweets or whatever is to dry out the shy students. And I just don’t — I can’t picture — you know, I went to school. I can’t picture how I could incorporate like am I tweeting instead of raising my hand or —
Paul: Yeah, I don’t — I don’t get that but —
Chris: And one of the comments and I thought this was really apropos which was getting students’ attention is not teaching, right?
Chris: So you allow them to use Twitter maybe you think you have their attention. Maybe you do have their attention, but that’s not teaching.
Paul: I’m not sure if internet access to students in class is —
Chris: In general, yeah.
Paul: — a good idea — you know, individual access is a good idea. So kids are tweeting while they’re in class, I don’t know about that because you know what I’ll be doing? Playing Pacman while I was in class.
Chris: Or playing with the Google Doodle.
Paul: Yeah. Or just doing anything other than listening.
Chris: All right. Gareth Perkin on our Facebook page, Facebook.com/ewebstyle.
Paul: Let’s do that later.
Chris: Later? Okay.
Paul: Because I think that’s going to be a good discussion that —
Chris: Yeah, you’re right.
Paul: — we will all be able to get into.
Chris: That’s a good point.
