Altering search results? This seems bad, like voter fraud bad. Gerrymandering comes to mind.
Google just recently went “black” alongside Wikipedia, Reddit and other popular companies to protest a government bill aimed at suppressing information, and now it seems they’re trying to do it themselves? Are we going to let them get away with this?
The short answer is: probably. The internet may seem like an ethical place when it takes on Washington, but DC is the outsider. Google is the internet’s Capitol and we can’t afford to fight a war on two fronts.
So what does this mean for you? If you want to continue to get results from SEO, you’d better brush off that Google+ account.
This is really frustrating because most of us have too many social networks. Fortunately, there are several ways to bundle all those social platforms into one seamless action. Here are a few resources:
- WordPress to Twitter to Facebook
- Update Facebook from the Google
- Facebook to Twitter
- Facebook to Tumblr
One clever way is by using Google+ to email your Facebook status, Facebook then sends that to Twitter, Twitter to Tumblr, Tumblr to WordPress. (Of course by that point, who knows what you’re actually publishing.) But check out If This Then That - it is incredibly easy.
