Highly Effective Social Bookmarks

Finally Facebook have announced that they will start to allow their members to use clickable Twitter style hashtags in their posts. This will enable users to quickly identify hot and trending topics currently being discussed across this social platform.

Clicking on a hashtagged keyword will activate a pop up box that will display other posts using the same keyword.

Facebook follows Twitter by adding clickable hashtags

“Facebook is adding support for hashtags to help its members keep track of popular topics being discussed on the social network,

Adding the “#” sign to a word will turn it into a clickable link which brings up a feed of what other people are saying about the same topic.

Using hashtags to identify a theme was popularised on the internet by Twitter.

Facebook said it offers a “larger view of what’s happening”. Experts said it might also aid ad sales.

Other services that support hashtags include Pinterest, Tumblr, Google+, Sina Weibo, LinkedIn and Instagram, which is owned by Facebook.

Real-time marketing

The news was announced on the California-based firm’s News Page.

It said clicking a hashtag would bring up a chronologically ordered list of comments using the same term, including posts from people and pages they were not friends with and had not liked.”

This will be a useful enhancement to the Facebook user experience and is likely to prove extremely popular given that users already have a good understanding about the benefits of using hashtags in their posts, as pioneered by Twitter.

Getonfast Google+ ProfileThe government is clearly on a mission to pursue multinational companies such as Google, Amazon, Starbucks and others, for operating what they believe are robust tax avoidance schemes, in order to reduce their corporation tax liability in the UK.

Whilst morally, it may seem unfair that these large global companies pay very little tax within UK, it would seem that legally, they are able to achieve this due to the loop holes in our tax laws.

Therefore is it fair that these companies have been branded as “evil”? Surely it is the politicians who make the law and any exploitation of tax avoidance loop holes are fair game.

The solution seems obvious to me!

The politicians should stop wasting time and money on expensive committees, stop wasting time on bully tactics and focus on closing these legal loop holes. Google and other companies will then be forced to pay the appropriate amount of corporation tax, if they wish to trade locally within the UK.

HMRC must fully investigate Google over tax, say MPs

HM Revenue and Customs should “fully investigate” Google after information from whistleblowers “undermined” the firm’s defence of its tax arrangements, a committee of MPs has said.

Google says that advertising sales take place in low-tax Ireland, not the UK.

But the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) said it had been told by ex-employees of the tech giant that UK-based staff are engaged in selling.

Google said it complies with all the tax rules in the UK.

The company generated $18bn (£11.5bn) in revenue from the UK between 2006 and 2011 and paid just $16m (£10m) in UK corporate taxes in the same period.

Companies pay corporation tax on their profits, not their sales. But the current debate revolves around the apparent ability of multinationals to move their profits from country to country with little obvious relationship to where the sales are generated.

The committee also said that confidence in HMRC had been weakened.

It said it was “extraordinary” that the tax authority did not challenge Google over “the complete mismatch between the company’s supposed structure and the substance of its activities”………..

How to choose the best website analysis report

Do you still wonder why some websites don’t get any traffic from Google while others rake in huge profits from the massive, free traffic they receive from Google and other search engines? Then, you can benefit from an effective website analysis report.

Webmasters around the world stay awake at night, wondering why Google sends such huge traffic to their competitor websites. They also worry about the actions they take because they have no clue if their actions will lead to yet another penalty.

The right kind of website analysis report can give you information on things you do right and things you do wrong with your website. In such a report, you will find:

Analysis of keyword density

Is Google likely to penalise your website for keyword stuffing? Find out before it happens and take remedial measures before it is too late. Most novice webmasters make the mistake of stuffing their pages with all different kinds of keywords. Google has mechanisms to identify keyword stuffing and may remove such sites from their listings.

Analysis of page elements and page load times

Is your page loaded with more widgets than it can handle? Do you have a very slow loading website? Learn how to improve your websites loading time. Fast loading web pages are the favourites of search engines. Too many widgets can not only affect visitor experience, but also hamper your chances of getting high rankings in the search listings.

Analysis of page titles, meta tags and keyword usage

Page titles are important for several reasons. Firstly, your Title Tag helps the search engines to identify what the web page is all about. Secondly, visitors can easily understand what your page is all about, by simply looking at the title of the page, shown on the search engine results page.

Analysis of site architecture and page navigation

Learn from experts if your site’s link structure is the best it can get. Can a visitor reach every page of your website in two or three clicks? If not, you are in serious trouble. Search engines will find it difficult to index all your pages. It is also difficult for real visitors to find what they want on your site.

Analysis of broken links

You may have linked to an active web page, which was later deleted or moved to a new location. Lots of broken links are a bad sign. Leaving so many broken links in your site tells Google that you are not serious about keeping your website up to date. This can affect your rankings big time.

Selecting an effective website analysis report is the first step to removing site elements that may be affecting your search engine ranking results and strengthening those elements that give your site a ranking boost.

A website analysis report may not solve all of your website’s problems. It will however show you the exact steps you can take to increase the efficiency of your site. You will find the tips, suggestions and guidance practical and very helpful.
