Twitter just announced Promoted Tweet syndication, which sees the company showing its ads outside of Twitter. This is starting with Flipboard and Yahoo Japan. There’s no question that Internet users experience Twitter in many places beyond Twitter itself, so it make sense that Twitter would try to apply that to Promoted Tweets. “What makes Twitter unique is that Tweets can …
Could you one day be able to stream every episode of the ‘show about nothing’ on Netflix? Probably not. Well, who knows? Maybe? Jerry Seinfeld says it’s at least a remote possibility. “Jerry, any word on Seinfeld coming to Netflix?” asked a redditor during a Thursday AMA session with Seinfeld. “You are a very smart and progressive person. These conversations …
If you run a business or a successful brand, chances are you use social media to get the word out about newest products and offers. There are multiple services out there that help brands get the most out of social media. Facebook just recently announced its rebranded Preferred Marketing Developer program, but some brands may want help in marketing across …
Would you welcome an “all The Simpsons, all the time” channel into your life? Whatever your reaction, it may be time to make room for such a venture, provided the guys at Fox can demonstrate how much extra revenue such a creation could generate. Because The Simpsons is the longest-running scripted sitcom, animated or otherwise, of all time, the possesses …
Some major news organizations that make up the Internet Content Syndication Council are reportedly working on some guidelines for content syndication for their own collective membership, while providing an example for others to go by.
The council includes the Associated Press, Reuters, CBS, The Tribune Company, and many others. Here’s the full list of companies represented:
The idea of easy money in someone’s bank account is enough to make almost anyone stop and listen. So now that I have your attention, how can you make easy money? The answer is very simple; syndicate your blog. Well that is if you already are blogging. And if you aren’t, then you might want to consider it.
By writing a blog, you get to air your thoughts and feelings, converse with intelligent people in the comments section, and do all other sorts of nice things. Yet what’s really nice is making money, and blog syndication can give you the best of both worlds.
With the growing adoption of RSS readers, Meme Trackers and content being syndicated on 3rd party sites, how your content is ultimately presented becomes increasingly important.
Reuters and Pluck have announced a strategic partnership aimed at syndicating third-party blog content as part of Reuters news and information service. In return for its $7 million investment in Pluck, Reuters will receive an undisclosed share of ownership of the company.
Not only are online news patrons just as desirable from a marketing perspective as their print counterparts, but in many instances, they are even more upscale.
Things have changed a lot for web publishers since I wrote the first edition of Power Linking in 2002. Back then there was only one option for publishing websites for the average, non-geek: static html pages.
Issues of copyright, collaboration, and fair use have become more of a concern, and the lawyers at the Syndicate Conference panel, “The Legalities of Blogging,” acknowledged they are the bad news on the flip side of syndication’s good news.
The panel for the Syndicate Conference session, “Everything you always wanted to know about PR and Syndication but were afraid to ask,” traded comments on the tools and techniques for making syndication work in the world of public relations.
At the Syndication Conference in San Francisco there are a lot of believers in RSS as a replacement for email marketing. I can’t disagree more and finally … I found two speakers yesterday who still believe in email. Now, I have a vested interest here … my company iEntry Inc. which publishes WebProNews derives about 70% of our revenue via email ads in our newsletters. We have RSS feeds too!
At the Syndicate Conference in San Francisco, iEntry Inc. CEO Rich Ord sat in on a session entitled “Compound Feeds, Micro-content and the Future of Syndication.” The premiere developers of next generation web technology were there to talk it up, but unless you’re really in the loop, you’re saying, “micro-what?” This is really some Web 2.0/Semantic Web conceptual tech heady stuffwe may need a translator.
For over a year now I have been wondering why Google hasn’t more openly embraced syndicated feeds – be they RSS or its splintered sister, Atom. When you look at how MSN and Yahoo are partying with RSS like it is 1999, Google is like the nerd sitting in the corner in the corner with no one to dance with.

New websites are being launched daily. In order to compete, webmasters need to find alternative ways of producing themed websites.
If you’re sick of being #987 for your best Google keyword phrase, here are simple-to-implement changes that can skyrocket your listing (and they don’t have anything to do with what is ON your page!)
With the rise of always-on Internet connections in homes and businesses, and the continued explosive growth of the World Wide Web and Internet-accessible applications, it is becoming more and more important for applications to be able to share data with each other. Sharing data among disparate platforms requires a platform-neutral data format that can be easily transmitted via standard Internet protocols-this is where XML fits in. Since XML files are essentially, simple text files with well-known encodings, and since there exist XML parsers for all commonly used programming languages, XML data can be easily consumed by any platform.
Consuming a Syndication Feed in an ASP.NET Web Page
In order to test the syndication engine we just created, let’s build an online news aggregator that allows for any number of syndication feeds. The aggregator user interface will be fairly straightforward, comprising of three frames, as shown in Figure 2. In the left frame, a list of the various syndication feeds will be listed. In the top right frame, the news items for the selected syndication feed will be displayed. Finally, in the bottom right frame, the title and description of the selected news item feed will be displayed, with a link to the news item. Note that this UI is pretty much the de facto standard UI for aggregators of all kinds, including news aggregators, email clients and newsgroup readers.
Google announced that it’s making it easier to find your search terms and negative keywords faster on the Keywords tab in AdWords. In a brief Google+ post late last week that largely flew under the radar until this week (via Search Engine Land), Google said: …
