Water Cooler / ?? Choose Yourself Financial ??
« on: January 20, 2018, 02:04:44 PM »
Meet the man behind those ‘bitcoin genius’ ads all over the internet.

The “crypto genius” is James Altucher, who boasts an impressive resume of hedge fund employment, books, venture capitalist exits, and media appearances. The ads are for Choose Yourself Financial, a financial newsletter subscription service that offers advice to quickly profit on cryptocurrency.

In an email, Agora Financial marketing director Matt Lazas told Yahoo Finance it spends “lots of money” on online advertising and that the campaign has been the most successful the company has had in years. “[Spend] fluctuates month to month, but recently with the success of the offer we have dialed things way up on Yahoo and most other channels (FB, Google Display, Brightroll),” he wrote.

Traffic / Damaging Our Industry with Ranking Factors Studies
« on: January 17, 2018, 12:38:27 PM »
Recently SEMrush posted a study on Google’s top ranking factors. The study was not unlike many other studies published each year. It used a statistically significant data set to draw parallels between common metrics and high position (or ranking) in Google.

However, the conclusions they came to and reported to the industry were not entirely correct.

BUZZFEED RESPONDS PERFECTLY TO FACEBOOK'S CHANGES

"Interest in news is greater than ever before, and we want to assure our loyal readers—and ones we haven't yet reached—that these changes will not affect our ability to connect with and deliver for them," a BuzzFeed spokeswoman said in an e-mail statement. She declined to elaborate.

"Consumers are spending less time with the platform as they have become more aware of fake news on the platform, the toxicity of commentary that can exist," says Brian Wieser, senior research analyst at Pivotal.

Traffic / Why Facebook is headed for a terrible 2018
« on: December 19, 2017, 06:26:55 PM »
To outsiders and regulators, Facebook looks like a dangerous provider of instant gratification in a space suddenly vital to the health of society. It’s also making abuse and aggression too easy — something the UK Committee on Standards in Public Life pointed out in a new report. The panel urged the prime minister to back legislation to “shift the balance of liability for illegal content to the social media companies.”
