Social Media Sites to Get Dofollow Links From in 2013 It is always a pleasant surprise after sharing a piece of content on social media to get a link to your site that is "dofollow" (not restricted from being followed by the search engines). This way, not only do you manage to expose your content to a lot of potential "direct" visitors, but also to improve its positions in the search engines for certain keywords. Not all social links are dofollow. And normally, the more reputable a social site is, the more likely it is to make its outgoing links (especially comments links) nofollow in order to prevent spam. However, there are certain ways to get dofollow links to your posts from some of the major social media sites.

La montée en puissance des offres pour les entreprises sur les réseaux sociaux Entre le lancement des Global Pages, des posts sponsorisés et des options de ciblage de message sur Facebook, des pages profils Web pour Instagram, des pages pour les marques sur Pinterest, ou d’outils d’administration sur TumblR, les réseaux sociaux phare ont choisi d’accélérer les services à destination des entreprises afin soit d’accélérer la monétisation de leur service soit de la préparer dans le cas de Instagram par exemple. Petit tour d’horizon des nouveautés Si nous remontons le temps de quelques années, sʼinitier sur les réseaux sociaux étaient totalement gratuit. Les offres entreprise nʼavaient pas encore vu le jour et les entreprises coulaient des jours heureux sur les réseaux sociaux. Facebook : dʼabord Facebook avec ses fameuses pages «entreprise» avait fait couler de lʼencre lorsque le réseau social avait monétisé ses offres alors que la publicité était déjà largement déployée.

Laws of Simplicity HTML 5 Showcase: The Wilderness Downtown  I remember seeing this as it launched last week and was itching to post it, I held back a few days, because I wanted to showcase it as a video so everyone could get the full visual experience (it only works in Chrome browser, so naturally, the demo was built by Google!). This is by far, the most powerful HTML 5 demonstration I’ve seen yet, and it’s pretty easy to see why when you look at the serious javascript at work here… The HTML 5 demo has multiple choreographed windows triggered by music points, interactive bird flocking to your mouse and in time with the music , custom rendered Google maps , perfect real-time compositing over the top of maps, some advanced procedural drawing that delivers velocity influenced tree branches from the mouse and even 3D canvas rendering! So, enough of the nerd stuff, this is bloody amazing, check it out, you’ll be glad you did. Note to everyone. Be Sociable, Share!

Piximedia - Home page The GNU Operating System Heineken: Guerrilla Marketing Event In Italy  This is a pretty brave guerrilla marketing event by Heineken on the eve of one of the biggest matches you can imagine, Real Madrid vs AC Milan. Now you’re probably thinking it’s something out on the street, taking advantage of all the crazed soccer fans passing by, but you’d be wrong… Heineken decided to stage a fake event at the same time the game was to be played, a mix of classical music meets poetry in an Italian theater. To make this happen, they recruited about 200 people to help get over 1000 people away from their TV’s and into this event, sacrificing the biggest game of the season! Heineken even had the event broadcast live on SkySport, with crosses for interviews of famous sporting celebs to aid in the Authenticity, or infact, leverage some of the people who’d been stung by the stunt!

RockMelt: The New Social Web Browser  A new web browser called RockMelt launched it’s invitation to beta through a Facebook authentication scheme last week, and to get everyone excited, they kicked off by releasing this demo video that has racked up 500,000 views. Rockmelt aims to become a “Social Browser” by integrating your social life directly into your web browser’s interface to create one seamless experience no matter what website you are viewing. On the left it connects your friends and the right, your social accounts, by loading Facebook and Twitter API apps to give you direct access and one click sharing as if you were inside Facebook or Twitter. My first reaction was thinking it was pretty cool, with decent potential once users work out the new interface features, but the better part of me says unless they can drive big uptake in high school and university students it might fade away just as fast as their video went viral… but there is some huge potential here nevertheless.

Snickers Found Amusing Fails All Over NYC and Put These Stickers Next to Them BBDO New York continues its run of great work for Snickers with this irresistible out-of-home campaign, in which the candy brand found goofy mistakes all around New York City—and put stickers next to them that read, "You make mistakes when you're hungry." The fails are curious and amusing in their own right, of course, which is what makes this idea work so well. Adding a little snarky sticker caps them off perfectly. It helps that Snickers has had affection for people's mistakes for a long, long time.
