It’s been over a year since I blogged my screen-shot laden iPhone to YouTube upload tutorial… but those were iOS 6 instructions. Well, iOS 7 was released 5 months ago and today with the new operating system being installed on 80%+ of supported devices, I thought it was probably time for an updated walk-through.
Google Maps has been dancing around the idea of 3D maps for years, but in the past three dimensional imagery was elusive unless users had “built” 3D virtual models. Google is now poised to quickly render manual model building obsolete (for Google Maps anyway), with the roll-out of 3D satellite imagery. I can’t begin to tell you how they do it, but today I give you an overview of the stunning, explorable 360° photography now available in “New” Google Maps and Google Earth for desktop and mobile.
If it seems like it’s only been a year since we blogged about changes to the Google Analytics interface, it’s because it has. Last January we mentioned some tweaks made to the general layout of GA, which came on the heels of a complete overhaul and eventual removal of the familiar “old version” many had continued to rely on via a hidden footer link as Google phased in forced adoption of the new version. Now a design update is set to roll out to your account in the coming weeks and we’ve got your sneak peek here today.
In the summer of 2012 we wrote about our partnership with Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund to create the Vermont Food System Atlas, which we’re proud to announce launched earlier last year! As you may remember, VSJF envisions the VT Food Atlas as essentially being the information hub for their Farm to Plate Initiative.
VDW is OPEN today, Friday, February 14, 2014. We have a limited crew in the office with others working remotely. Please be patient with us as we return messages. Note, we will also be open on Monday, President’s Day, February 17th.
In the meantime, enjoy the white stuff and take a moment to clear your furnace vents and neighborhood fire hydrants.
We’re gearing up for another Code of BTV Hackathon. This one is especially close to our hearts as we’ll work with our friends involved with the Vermont Farm to Plate Network at NOFA Vermont’s Winter Conference this weekend.
Twitter is testing significant changes to their layout. Take a spin through the account of one of our staffers who has access to this early testing stage. Major changes were made to Twitter profile pages. Other pages feature larger images, easier to read text, and a more elegant design. Twitter seems to be testing the best features for Facebook, Google+, and Pinterest for their upgrade. After more testing, they will reveal their final changes.
Can you really search engine optimize a PDF document? If so, how is PDF SEO done? What if Google is indexing and ranking PDFs that you wanted to keep private? We answer all of these questions and more in today’s post about SEO for PDF documents.
One of our clients recently approached us to inquire about changing one of the primary keywords used to optimize their site. As it turns out, in just two short years industry nomenclature changed significantly and previously important keywords were now overshadowed by newly popularized phraseology. Today’s study is a case study in understanding how your target audience searches and optimizing your site for those terms.
Four weeks into the new year, what can I predict that hasn’t already been predicted by someone else? Probably not much, but lets take a look at what some other SEOs expect to see in 2014 while I try to sprinkle in some of my own wisdom and play Miss Cleo along the way.
