AdsMitchell - Getting Love on Two Other Blogs

Being fairly new to the world of tweeting and blogging (±4 months), I was extremely grateful last week to receive mention on two other blogs. There is no compliment more than knowing someone heard you and acted on it. Both mentions last week were results of positive engagement. I approached both people, giving them love in the form of a blog comment and an idea I suggested. It really makes me smile when people take the time to return the favor and thus two way communication. If someone makes the effort to react to something you say, I believe you should acknowledge this in some way, return the favor or both.

AdsMitchell - Heat Maps and How We See Web Pages

Your movement online can be felt and measured down to a fine grain of sand, but is all this accurate? This is talked about as the so called, "visual analytics" measurement tool. Heat Maps are described by Wiki as graphic representation of data where the values taken by a variable in a 2D map are represented in colors. True to this, one can view how unique browsers read a page and view the content on a website. Heat maps look much like the Predators view of life ...

AdsMitchell - Who is Google and What do They Want?

Fun at first glance until the Darth Vader in Google is revealed. The video was released Monday this week and really strikes Google with a hard blow to the head. Google is something we all know, so much so that it has been declared a word. Spelt without a capital letter, "to google". A verb said to be used when searching the internet. So even on Yahoo or Bing, you can still google away. I am a big fan of infographics, using images to convey information. Much like this video does to show the enormous power Google has acquired and hopes to acquire, over the rest of our internet existence. Google has acquired 30 companies in the last 9 years ...
