Social Networking, Pearltrees & Curation can increase Hubpages Traffic

Social Networking, Pearltrees & Curation can increase Hubpages Traffic
How do the Numbers Add up Statistically here, using Pearltrees I've increased my traffic levels here, using Pearltrees significantly, in the short 5 months I've been a writer for hubpages. This form of social sharing is definitely going to change how you view the web, entirely, and this sharing actually will make hubpages much more popular, once more people catch on to the sharing on Pearltrees as well. I shared my hubs 100+ times on Pearltrees the first week, & I track the stats on both Google Analytics for Hubpages traffic, as well as on Hubpages for pearl stats. Sharing Amongst the social community of Pearltrees Pearltrees is amazing when it comes to sharing hubs, web locations, or any other content that has a URL (web address). There's a Bookmarklet that helps users to pearl as they browse web locations, and its done super fast, since the plugin tool gets embedded into your web browser, shown in the image below.

Why Social Beats Search That's a controversial post headline and I don't mean that social will always beat search, but there's a rising chorus out there about "content farms" and search optimized content creation that is worth touching on. Arrington started it when he posted about "the end of hand crafted content". Richard MacManus penned a similar post the same day called "Content Farms: Why Media, Blogs, and Google should be worried". When a web service like Google controls a huge amount of web traffic (>50% for many sites), it's going to get spammed up. What's worse, and what Mike and Richard are talking about, is the act of search engine driven content creation. I left this comment at the end of a very long comment thread on Arrington's post: social tools will allow us to decide what is crap and what is not. our social graphs will help us. search engines won’t. it’s a lot harder to spam yourself into a social graph. The Internet is a massive content creation machine.

Pearltrees > Blog Pearltrees - Visually Organize and Share Collections of Files and Links Pearltrees is a visual bookmarking tool that I first tried nearly five years ago. Over the years it has changed in response to feedback from its users. One of those changes was a transition from free-form webs of related files and links to its current format of visual squares and folders. Pearltrees now allows you to organize collections of links, videos, images, and files. Pearltrees offers a handful of ways to share your collections of resources. Applications for EducationPearltrees recently published a good guide to using their service in schools. Last but not least, Pearltrees now offers a slideshow display option that you can use when viewing all of the resources in a collection.

Pearltrees On The Internet map The map of the Internet Like any other map, The Internet map is a scheme displaying objects’ relative position; but unlike real maps (e.g. the map of the Earth) or virtual maps (e.g. the map of Mordor), the objects shown on it are not aligned on a surface. Mathematically speaking, The Internet map is a bi-dimensional presentation of links between websites on the Internet. Every site is a circle on the map, and its size is determined by website traffic, the larger the amount of traffic, the bigger the circle. Users’ switching between websites forms links, and the stronger the link, the closer the websites tend to arrange themselves to each other. Charges and springs To draw an analogy from classical physics, one may say that websites are electrically charged bodies, while links between them are springs. Also, an analogy can be drawn from quantum physics. Anyway, the real algorithm of plotting The Internet map is quite far from the analogies given above. Semantic web The Internet Phenomenon

Change The Image On A (Large) Pearl: How To Sweden: File-Sharing Recognized As A Religion The Church of Kopimism, whose principal tenent is the right to file-share, has been formally recognized as a religious organization in Sweden. The Swedish government agency Kammarkollegiet registered the Church of Kopimism as a religious organization in late December, just before Christmas, the group said in a Wednesday statement. Members of the church applied three times in their more than year-long quest to have the religion formally recognized in Sweden. Sweden is now the first and only country to recognize Kopimism as a religion, the group said. "For the Church of Kopimism, information is holy and copying is a sacrament," it said in a statement. Philosophy student Isak Gerson, spiritual leader and founder of the Church of Kopimism, said being recognized by Sweden is a big step towards removing the stigma around copying. "Hopefully, this is one step towards the day when we can live out our faith without fear of persecution," Gerson said in a statement.

6 reasons to use Pearltrees Pearltrees is the first and largest social curation community on the Internet. It’s a place to organize, discover and share all the cool content you find online. However, beyond this basic definition, a question remains: why would I want to use Pearltrees? Well, what I want to share with you are six major use cases (or reasons) we’ve identified as being most popular across our entire community of web curators. In addition, I’ll also share with you a couple of interesting ways in which I have put Pearltrees to use for myself. Hopefully, you’ll not only get value in learning how the community uses Pearltrees, but also be inspired to find even more clever and creative ways to use our software yourself. 3. The problem is that aside from searching your personal twitter stream to get back to the cool stuff you tweeted there’s no great way to keep those links at hand. Note: For advanced users you can even hashtag the links you tweet with #PT and the name of a pearltree in your account (e.g.

Founding principles Patrice Lamothe, CEO of Pearltrees, November 2008 A short description of Pearltrees Pearltrees is a collaborative project enabling Internet users to become editors of the Web, i.e. to visualize, organize and share their navigations. Context The development of content creation, sharing and discussion sites has radically transformed the practice of Internet users. However, the democratization of creation has not led to the democratization of access to this content. This imbalance between democratic content creation and centralized access to content poses one of the main barriers to the development of the Web. As spectators, Web users cannot find their way through the mass of content that is of interest to themAs creators, Web users are obliged to engage in disseminating and referencing activities, far removed from their real interests, if they want to attract the audience their content deserves.
