Facebook Enters The Search Arena – What You Need To Know

What Is Graph Search? How You Can Optimise It, and Is Bing The Real Winner?

Facebook unveiled their new graph search feature yesterday. To date, Facebook’s search has been pretty average and caused some holes in their overall product. Why is this big? Because they are taking Google, Yelp, Foursquare and others head on. The goal behind the feature is to “make dumb phrases or questions smart”. Soon, with a simple search you’ll be able to see how many friends have visited London or how many actually like Nickelback. However, some are asking if the search graph is ripping off Path’s innovative search.

Search Engine Land explains how it’s different to Google’s search, Facebook gives some early tips and tricks to page administrators and could Bing’s partnership be the heft they need to increase their marketshare?

Uncover Instagram’s Opportunities, Forget About Link Building and the Annual Report gets a makeover

Despite Facebooks’s billion dollar acquisition, Instagram’s opportunities aren’t given as much airtime as, say, Pinterest.  In many ways Instagram can liven up a dreary Facebook page or Twitter feed, it can also provide  access to a market that might be tired of the typical social media marketing.  An abundance of opportunities, I say.

One web pro explains why he is no longer a link builder but a content publicist, this is a great snapshot of the state of the industry and what one person is doing to stay ahead.

Finally, annual reports get a pretty bad wrap for being boring. Mailchimp has changed all that with their report for last year.
