SEO Company Says Get On-Board with Facebooks Social Search Engine

Dallas, TX (Vocus) July 9, 2010

Although Facebooks Open Graph is still in its infancy of developing a social search engine, companies need to take note of the like button that has challenged Googles dominance as a search engine.

In April, Facebooks like buttons took the internet by storm, appearing on web pages covering every industry imaginable. The idea is to use behavioral data to power a social search engine with results driven by what our peers and other Facebook users recommend instead of traditional link building SEO. This means that companies with the most Facebook users who like what they have to offer will appear higher in Facebook search rankings.

There are two ways a Facebook user can select that they like your company, product or service. The first is by adding a Facebook plug-in to your website so that from your homepage viewers can click on Facebooks like button. The second is by creating a page within Facebook for your company, separate from personal profile, where users will be given the option to like the business. It has been confirmed by Facebook that all web pages that use open graph plug-ins show up in the social networks search results the same as traditional Facebook pages appear.

What does this mean for businesses? It is not time to neglect the importance of traditional search engine optimization but it is time to make sure website is equipped with the Open Graph API and plug-ins. Being active on Facebook with a company page is also an important step toward increased visibility in social search results.

Dallas based website design & SEO Company, a leader in web design and SEO, can help businesses achieve the search placement it deserves. Get ahead of the competition by taking internet marketing to the next level.

We have the technology to make this world a better place, but as of yet we haven’t quite managed it – because we don’t seem to know each other very well, and we don’t collaborate efficiently enough. The Tribal Engine is a social search engine which can bring people with similar interests together to solve problems together.

A traditional search engine simply offers you a list of results from a search query. During a search, you would normally think alone, and solve problems alone. Using the Tribal Search Engine, you enter your likes, dislikes, fears and interests related to a physical space.

From those constraints the search runs a swarming algorithm to return a list of environments which could be ideal for you to visit.

For example, you could set the parameters to indicate that you like good food and dislike loud music venues in order to decide where to go on a Friday night. You can then view other people who have gathered near your results in real time – they are likely to be the people who share similar interests. From there you can meet in physical space or online to collectively decide where to go, or even solve problems related to your interests and fears. By talking to and sharing knowledge with people doing the same search together you can dramatically speed up your problem solving!

Pearltrees New “Super Embed” to Display & View Series of Web Pages in One Single Window


San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) May 3, 2010

Pearltrees, the leading-edge social Web curation tool and discovery platform, today announced a new feature called Super Embed, at the annual west coast Web 2.0 Expo. As one of only five companies selected to present at Web 2.0 Expos Launch Pad event, Pearltrees will unveil its new release (Beta 0.7) this week at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

With this latest release, bloggers, journalists and Internet users can organize a series of Web pages about a particular topic, create one tree that houses all that content and then embed that Pearltree in their blog or website so people can view everything they have discovered about that topic in one single window all without leaving the blog.

Additional major improvements featured in this release include a Pearltree add-on for Chrome, real-time notifications about comments a Pearltree has received, as well as when other Pearltrees users pick or subscribe to a particularly Pearltree, a simplified user interface and a new social search engine that gives users a visual representation of the relevance of search results based upon proximity. This helps users see at a glance which results are closest to their search.

Pearltrees latest version transforms the process of discovering, organizing and sharing the things people find on the Web while enabling bloggers, journalists and other content creators to add a new level of depth and context to the articles they post online.

Easy to integrate into all sites and blogs, Pearltrees new beta brings transforms Web navigation and discovery.

Why the Super Embed Will Matter to Bloggers & Journalists:

For writers, users can discover a series of Web pages and explore them in-depth without ever leaving their site. Users are exposed to a complete experience about a topic in one easy-to-navigate window.

With readers spending more time on your site, you have more time to engage with them and build a deeper relationship.

Easy-to-use, simply copy an HTML code from Pearltrees, not unlike users would grab HTML code from YouTube, and paste it into their site or blog. One click activates the window and simple arrows permit navigation from one page to the other. Suggested downloads are clearly signposted so users can start using it within minutes.

Why Pearltrees Super Embed Will Matter to the Rest of us:

There is simply too much content in too many places on the Web and while various engines help filter what users are looking for, user-generated content, aggregators and contributors such as Yelp, Digg and more, can only get you so far. While useful, they do not curate the Web for the user, nor do they allow them to participate in the curation process.

Smart curation online is necessary in the next generation of the Web users will demand smarter ways to find content and services that help them save time and find their passions and interests faster and easier. Pearltrees addresses Web curation by enabling anyone to individually organize their Web and extend it to other peoples organization of the Web. By doing so, users can discover new content from people with common interests.

Social System & Search

When users pearl the same pages or use a Pearltree (part of another user account), they construct their account of course and automatically constitute their interest graph. From this interest graph users can explore the pearltrees the most connected to one of yours. It also enables the user to search other topics with relevant results according to their interests.

Why Pearltrees is Unique:

With the onslaught of information were being hit with daily online, its impossible to keep up with content and even harder to discover or curate that content into something that is meaningful and relevant for us.

Combining the best in curation, organization and discovery, users can use Pearltrees to quickly save and access online content they find every day, discover new content from others who are interested in similar topics and ideas, and drive people to their world of interests.

Its simple:
