It’s clearly time for Beanstalk to officially list ourselves as a sitedefibrillation solution provider.
Why? Because apparently the secret to SERP dominance with an EMD is to coin your own phrase!
Do a search for ‘coinflation’ + ‘gold’ or really, almost any other keyword to see what Google considers an ‘improved’ result following the EMD update.
If you didn’t get something like the results above, please let us know!
Okay so that seems slightly silly, but how the heck did they pull that off? There’s clearly PPC/AdWords competition for the phrase, and EMD should either be a penalty or moot, shouldn’t it?
Well apparently not! In fact EMD can still clearly be an asset if the ‘quality’ scores are all above par!
This means that if you have an organic campaign, with ongoing back links/references from trusted sources, and you aren’t hitting other penalties, you really should be feeling no loss at all from the EMD update.
Indeed, if your competition was using non-organic approaches to EMDs they should have taken a trust hit, and you may see an improvement in position due to their failings!
So while I can show you some examples of the EMD apparently failing to work, we can assure you it’s working, and overall seems like a positive step for Google.
10″ Google Nexus from Samsung?
Last night CNET announced some ‘highly’ probable info that Samsung is manufacturing a new 10.1″ Nexus tablet for Google.
The article is more of a stub of hear-say but had some rather ‘exact’ details including the resolution of the display:
The 2,560×1,600 display will have a PPI (pixels per inch) of about 299, said Shim. That tops the 264 PPI on the 9.7-inch 2,048×1,536 Retina iPad.
Clearly this will be the ‘high end’ model for the Nexus line (currently manufactured by Asus), especially when you consider that Google will be releasing a 7″ Nexus subsidized down to a $99 price this December!
In fact since we’re pondering things to come more than talking facts, I’d have to assume this will be a dual or quad core device with GPU acceleration of some sort to assist with up-scaling video content and 3d games to that eye-popping resolution.
So if this high-end Nexus tablet is anything less than $399 I’d be really shocked and very worried for Apple.
Okay, perhaps more worried for Apple, would be more accurate given it’s current public affairs issues..
In case you’re wondering ‘who cares?'; Tim Pool goes to the streets and broadcasts unedited footage of protests/events.
I’d like to think Apple is patenting this to prevent companies from doing this, but in actual fact this is very creepy stuff from the overly litigious makers of the most expensive walled gardens on the planet.
It seems almost like Apple is testing how well their brand/product can weather bad public image at this point?
