    Bing Tags Expands, Makes Pages Linked To Your Profile Public

    Search engines continue to go old school, encouraging people to “tag” content in a way that makes it feel like it’s 1999 all over again. Today, Bing makes another push in that direction, making content you tag with “Bing Tags” more visibile.

    Honestly, I feel like this tagging crazy is simply Google and Bing falling down on the job. It used to be that we praised search engines for moving away from the tagging that was popular with them in the mid-to-late 1990s. That’s because they were...

    Journalists call them headlines; SEOs call them titles and headings. Whatever you call them, they’re the words that tell someone that your article is what they want to read. Look at Google News any day of the week for examples of headlines that give you absolutely no idea what the article might be about. Search engines don’t know what to rank them for; users don’t know whether to click.

    One trend I watch is that of searchers asking what time things start. For any event, you can be sure that...

    With the news today that Chrome is moving to secure search, marketers may be wondering about the larger picture of using search data in Web analytics.

    The searches people do that lead them to a site is valuable data to an organization. What other data source do we have that gives us direct access to our customers’ wants and needs?

    By now, everyone’s used to Siri’s wit. Tell her you love her, and Apple’s Siri digital assistant may respond that all you need is love — and an iPhone. Or that it will never work out. And she’s got jokes for a variety of other queries.

    But who’s the woman behind Siri? Or the man? Or the team? Because there are people, and Apple’s hiring someone.

    Spotted via Zach Seward, Apple’s apparently seeking a “Siri Writer.” From the post on LinkedIn: We’re looking for a uniquely creative individual...
