A manifesto on the dark side of Google and how to break their digital chains   Before this, here is a genuine question I hope you'll think about it for a moment before answering honestly. Are you tired of being forced into Google's imaginary box of so called "ethics" and "morals" on your work and business?   This irrational yet widely accepted idea that if you do not follow what Google says then you are digitally “spanked” by Google, literally, (interns who come to your house with their special self-driving cars) which then casts you out and treats you like a criminal by banning your account or site or anything else within their seemingly endlesss power. This even with the constantly changing guidelines (aka RULES) that Google itself violates in their own ventures, just see how much money they make off their SEO on their OWN search engine, more than some nations. And then, after trying hard by spending time and money to be one of Google’s law-abiding followers you STILL find yourself unrewarded and often punished seemingly without reason or explanation. What I’d kindly like you to do is to try and imagine breaking away from Google, taking the focus away from what Google wants...

Visit Jack's personal blog here. (via JackSmith.eu)   I moved to America four years ago, when I was 22. Since then, I’ve co-founded two startups that have raised ~$90 million in venture capital and have created hundreds of jobs in five different countries.

Is online video advertising and marketing the new big thing or all hype?     These charts show a glimpse into the ROI of the potentially lucrative world of Video Marketing through Ads, Affiliate Offers, etc   Your video ad metrics are likely failing you—at least when it comes to helping you understand ROI. A new study from the Nielsen Media Lab and HIRO Media suggests that there’s hardly any correlation between engagement-based metrics (like click-through rates and views) and ROI (intent to purchase). So while it might be nice to brag that your Facebook video got a million views, those views still don’t tell you how many people remembered the ad or decided they wanted to buy your product. It shouldn’t be surprising, then, that 43 percent of marketers say they have difficulty proving the ROI of their online video ads, according to an eMarketer report. Without knowing how to show business results, it’s difficult for marketers to optimize going forward. To help out, Nielsen looked at three non-engagement-based metrics and studied how they affected consumer behavior: 1. Player size: small (300 x 250) vs. big (640 x 360) 2. Content environment: content relevant to target audience vs. non-relevant 3. Site ranking: comScore top 1000 vs. comScore top 10 Here’s what Nielsen found.   1. You might be burning...
