Apple Turns Down Apps for Requiring Registration?

Apple Turns Down Apps for Requiring Registration?

By Chris Crum August 23, 2010

According to the Next Web, Apple may be rejecting apps that require user registration first. The publication looks at an email a developer reportedly received from Apple saying:

Godin on Digital Pricing
Two weeks ago marketing guru Seth Godin gave advice to the industry with his essay "Music Lessons" drawing praise for our readers. (read more and vote in our poll here).

Treat Readers Like High Schoolers to Gain Subscribers

At least when it comes to their reading comprehension.

It makes a lot of sense if you think about it. Less people will complete a doctorate as will complete a four year undergraduate degree. Less people will compete a four year degree as will graduate high school. Less education usually means less reading and less reading leads to a lower level of reading comprehension. If the words and sentences you use are too complex a number of people who might otherwise appreciate what you have to say may have trouble following how you’re saying it.

Anonymity Not the Enemy

In the context of the Gizmodo social hack, Seth writes:

"Anonymity is the enemy, whether it’s online or walking around a trade show with a clicker in your pocket."

I vehemently disagree with Seth’s statement.  Here’s why.

SES Toronto – Seth Godin!

We have a great keynote speaker now confirmed for SES Toronto, June 12-13 (the premier event for search engine marketing professionals) – Seth Godin.

The first 600 through the door will even get a complimentary copy of Seth’s new book, The Dip.

Don’t miss it! This will be the fourth and undoubtedly the best yet Search Engine Strategies conference in Canada.

Another SEO Challenge, This Time for Godin

If you don’t know who Seth Godin is, you probably don’t read a lot of marketing blogs or marketing books. He’s authored about a dozen, including my personal favorite entitled “All Marketers Are Liars.” He’s spoken at Google and his blog was recently listed as the number 1 marketing blog in the world.

Ok, enough with his bio; one of his recent posts greatly disappointed me, because he apparently doesn’t understand SEO. After looking deeply at his blog, I was horrified to discover some major downfalls. So I’m going to make some claims, show some evidence and put forth a logical case against his view point and I’m even going to slam his article on SEO as naïve, ill-contrived and most importantly, encouraging of a very expensive mistake for business owners. I’ve got nothing personally against him, but when someone that public publishes something so ignorant concerning a large part of my profession, it warrants a strong response.

Seth Godin on the Future of Blogs

I don’t necessarily agree with Seth’s premise that multiple posts per day “make it easy to lose loyal readers.”
