The Most Expensive Keywords in Google AdWords (And How to Target Them in Your Search Campaigns) On the heels of Google’s blow-out Q2 2011 earnings announcement last week, we wanted to find out what keywords demand the highest costs per click and are most competitive in terms of high search volume. Since the vast majority of Google's profits come from AdWords advertising, these high CPC keyword categories are responsible for a large part of Google's profits. The results of our research are illustrated in an infographic of the most expensive keywords. The 20 keyword categories with the highest search volume and highest costs per click, thereby netting Google the most money, are: We found that that 97% of Google's revenue comes from advertising on Google sites. Google AdWords is a dynamic, auction-based marketplace where advertisers bid on keywords to compete for top ad placement. The keyword categories with the highest volumes and costs represent businesses with very high lifetime customer value – in other words, these industries can afford to pay a lot to acquire a new customer.

How To Lead A Creative Life [Infographic] | Fast Company [Close Window] By Jason Feifer Our complete guide to making your inner genius your greatest on-the-job asset. Back to article >> Infographic by Pop Chart Lab The age of information overload Victoria Belmont finds out who is really in charge - our technology or us? From reading emails to managing status updates on mobile devices 24/7 with an all-you-can-eat data plan - we are consuming information like never before. Forget about describing bytes as mega and giga, think exa and zetta because by 2016 there may be the data equivalent of every movie ever made hurtling across the internet every three minutes. While that may seem like way too much for a person to watch, an academic study by the University of California, San Diego, suggests that current data levels are the equivalent of each US citizen consuming 12 hours of information - or media - each day. An average US citizen on an average day, it says, consumes 100,500 words, whether that be email, messages on social networks, searching websites or anywhere else digitally. "In principle, you can have more than 24 hours of consumption in a day." Tasered with a text And that is a problem that is beginning to get noticed.

Death by Information Overload « Just Another ARTS2090 Blog Howard Rheingold devised the term ‘Infotention’ “to describe the psycho-social-techno skill/tools we all need to find our way online today, a mind-machine combination of brain-powered attention skills with computer-powered information filters.” In today’s fast-paced, technologically-driven world, we are constantly being bombarded with an influx of information. As a result, we need to be alert for information specifically and immediately useful to us. Infotention is not just about blocking out irrelevant information, it is also about recognising what to let in, how to locate it and how to organise it to come to you when it is updated, and how to filter it. There is no doubt that most of us struggle with information overload, particularly when it comes to effectively filtering and prioritising the content relevant to our personal and professional life. One of my favourite tools for combating information overload is online bookmarking site Diigo Waugh, R (2012), ‘Google boggling our brains?
Infographic: History of Web Standards From 1962 to present (no, that's not a typo), Vitamin T and An Event Apart have pulled together A Brief History of Web Standards. This infographic has a lot of interesting factoids and information about the evolution of the Web. Now, when you're thinking "Web standards," you're probably thinking about things like HTML and CSS standards. The graphic touches on those, but pays particular attention to "standards" like typefaces and Godwin's Law (created in 1990, by the way). You probably already knew that Arpanet was established in 1962, but did you know that "hypertext" was coined in 1965 by Ted Nelson? Some other interesting tidbits: The first Web site went online in December of 1990. The predictions are pretty conservative, especially the last: "People will continue to complain that the W3C moves too slowly and that browser vendors make stuff up too willy-nilly."
Want People to Return Your Emails? Avoid These Words [INFOGRAPHIC] Next time you write an email subject line, think twice about the words you're using. Loading your message with words such as "confirm," "join," "press," or "invite" is not a good idea if you want a response, says data from Baydin, the makers of email plugin Boomerang. Baydin recently extracted data from five million emails its users handled — either using the company's "email game" or scheduled for later via Boomerang. Its data also suggests the best time to send emails is before work. Already sending emails packed with "opportunity" at 6 a.m. and not getting a response? Baydin's average email game player deleted about half of the 147 messages he or she received each day. Images courtesy of iStockphoto, chezzzers
Visualize This: How to Tell Stories with Data by Maria Popova How to turn numbers into stories, or what pattern-recognition has to do with the evolution of journalism. Data visualization is a frequent fixation around here and, just recently, we looked at 7 essential books that explore the discipline’s capacity for creative storytelling. And in a culture of equally increasing infographics overload, where we are constantly bombarded with mediocre graphics that lack context and provide little actionable insight, Yau makes a special point of separating the signal from the noise and equipping you with the tools to not only create better data graphics but also be a more educated consumer and critic of the discipline. From asking the right questions to exploring data through the visual metaphors that make the most sense to seeing data in new ways and gleaning from it the stories that beg to be told, the book offers a brilliant blueprint to practical eloquence in this emerging visual language.

A Brain Boost for information overload It’s called a cortically coupled computer vision (C3Vision) system, and it uses a computer to amplify the power of the quickest and most accurate tool for object recognition ever created: the human brain. The human brain has the capacity to process very complicated scenes and pick out relevant material before we’re even consciously aware we’re doing so. These “aha” moments of recognition generate an electrical signal that can be picked up using electroencephalography (EEG), the recording of electrical activity along the scalp caused by the firing of neurons in the brain Then it scans the much larger database—it could contain upward of 50 million images—and pulls out those that rank high in visual characteristics most highly correlated with the “aha” moments detected by the EEG. It’s an idea that has already drawn significant interest from the U.S. government. “Their big problem is they have tons of images and not enough eyes to look at them,” Sajda says.
