It’s your ‘address’ on the World Wide Web, and along with your website, serves as your ‘online identity,’ reflecting your purpose and personality. Friends, family, customers – anyone in the world with Internet access – can type your domain name into their Web browser and visit your website. Order yours here from http://AnotherWoid.com
What’s a Domain Name?
I’m reading the post and there are ‘pearls’ to be had, one of them is titled, “What must we do to be Hummingbird-friendly?” it says this:
Let me ask you few questions, and try to answer them sincerely:
- When creating/optimizing a site, are you doing it with a clear audience in your mind?
- When performing on-page optimization for your site, are you following at least these SEO best practices?
- Using a clear and not overly complex information architecture;
- Avoiding canonicalization issues;
- Avoiding thin-content issues;
- Creating a semantic content model;
- Topically optimizing the content of the site on a page-by-page basis, using natural and semantically rich language and with a landing page-centric strategy in mind;
- Creating useful content using several formats, that you yourself would like to share with your friends and link to;
- Implementing Schema.org, Open Graph and semantic mark-ups.
- Are your link-building objectives:
- Better brand visibility?
- Gaining referral traffic?
- Enhancing the sense of thought leadership of your brand?
- Topically related sites and/or topically related sections of a more generalist site (i.e.: News site)?
- As an SEO, is social media offering these advantages?
- Wider brand visibility;
- Social echo;
- Increased mentions/links in the form of derivatives, co-occurrences, and co-citation in others’ web sites;
- Organic traffic and brand ambassadors’ growth.
If you answered yes to all these questions, you don’t have to do anything but keep up the good work, refine it, and be creative and engaging. You were likely already seeing your site ranking well and gaining traffic thanks to the more holistic vision of SEO you have.
If you answered no to few of them, then you have just to correct the things you’re doing wrong and follow the so-called SEO best practices (and the 2013 Moz Ranking Factors are a good list of best practices).
If you sincerely answered no to many of them, then you were having problems even before Hummingbird was unleashed, and things won’t get better with it if you don’t radically change your mindset.
Having this done for you then begs the question, how do you ‘audit’ that this has happened without taking classes? Well, it was started to increased conversions, so your bank deposit should give you a monetary measure of how well things are working.

When I first saw this article, that made me think “In layman’s terms, how would you describe/define sentiment analysis?” and scrolling down a bit I found that question and this answer:
Sentiment analysis is a set of methods, typically (but not always) implemented in computer software, that detect, measure, report, and exploit attitudes, opinions, and emotions in online, social, and enterprise information sources. (As an aside, what makes it “analysis” is that you’re doing it systematically, with some goal in mind.)
I’ll add is that sentiment analysis much more than simplistically subtracting the number of “negative” words from the number of “positive” in a document or message in order to produce a score.
OK, that’s a bookmark now, and in the process of learning more from this ‘oldie-but-a-goodie’ article and related things I got this PDF file link too.
