Alexander Graham Bell probably never envisioned today’s telephone technology that enables people to hold a conversation from opposite ends of the globe.
Telephone technology has come a long way and is becoming increasingly sophisticated and mobile. Now, you can use your personal computer - from anywhere in the world - to hold a voice conversation or video conference with anyone.
That’s not a good thing but it sure seperates the able SEO firms from those who use a client’s ignorance of the EMD factor to gain serps from those of us who know better…and gain honest rankings without this scam!
For more info on the whole EMD and ranking factors in general….remembering that knowledge is power….try these great links….
Sorry Jim but I’m calling BS on this. I think if it is available and makes sense (yes I should be looking) it is my responsibility to at least make the client aware of it and it’s availability.

But YouTube adoption has remained flat: it stood at 56% in 2011, 57% in 2012, and is once again at 56% this year.
Google Inc.’s (NASDAQ: GOOG) YouTube management bragged about reaching the one billion active user level. But it said little about its revenue contribution to the search company, because it makes almost none. In the offending blog post, leaders of the big video website make misleading comments about how well it has done with marketers: In the last eight […]
Offending blog post… to whom? That has been the internet way for years….dating back to AOL selling ads to sites it owned
We are honoured to be invited by the Machine to submit our opinions and preferences. We give in to the pressure to categorize data and join the swarms of ‘collective intelligence.’ Donate your wisdom to the crowds. We are invited to create reading lists, rank music and evaluate the products we consumed. User bees working for queen Google. It is so tempting to become part of the online ‘pollination’ world, as French economist Yann Moulier coined it, with billions of users acting like bees that fly from one website to the other, adding value for the owners.’
