Web News and Views Roundup

I try to make this part of my daily routine (not always successfully): going over the latest headlines for webmasters. To do that, I subscribe to feeds I like and those I think are important (such as Tech Crunch and Mashable). Going over them today, I figured I’d share some of the gems here. May or may not become a regular feature – let me know if you like the concept.

Some thoughts on SEO – blogger Chris Dixon shares some thoughts about SEO. An interesting debate follows in the comment section about content vs. promotion with some good SEO tips thrown around for good measure.

A million stamps licked … and counting – Google Wave’s official blog reports the one million invites landmark. My biggest problem with Wave when I signed up was having no one to wave with. Things have changed and it’s quite noticeable when I log into wave. Still need a Google Wave invite by the way? I have a bunch of them available here.

Some more Google News – Matt Cutts provides a quick overview of some of Google’s latest updates including Google Goggles and the new real-time search feature.

Report: Bing Searchers Still More Click-Happy Than Google Searchers When It Comes To Ads – Tech Crunch reminds us that when it comes to Internet marketing traffic from Bing, Yahoo and AOL can be much more valuable than tech-savvy Google traffic.

Google Now Personalizes Everyone’s Search Results – Danny Sullivan covers the new personalized search results in Google in great detail, including screenshots. You should also take a look at what the webmasters community is saying about it in the SEORoundTable’s summary of forum responses.

Mashable’s Social Media Guide for Small Businesses – this welcome summary is an awesome link to have. Know someone who needs a hand with Social Media marketing? Just send them this link.

This is it for now. Hope you enjoy the links – leave me a note with your thoughts.
