Yesterday while waiting in line I caught a t-shirt with the U.S. Marine Corps emblem and the following quote
Pain is weakness leaving the body
There’s a lot of wisdom in that quote and I wanted to relate it to business. I didn’t come up with a nice compact quote, but here’s the idea.
Last month Stoney DeGeyter wrote an excellent post about the differences between developing a site to be search engine friendly and one that has been optimized for search engines. Joe Dolson followed that post up with one equally deserving of comment and a little over a week ago Joost de Valk added another post in the chain. Now it’s my turn.
Can it really be Friday again? Woo hoo! Ready for another episode of This Week In SEO? I hope so since that’s what you’re getting. I’ve got the usual assortment of links across the usual assortment of categories so let’s get started with some of the stories of the week that held my attention a little more than the others.
There’s been quite a lot of news this week about Google and privacy so I thought I’d break out some of the links from tomorrow’s This Week In SEO post and devote tonight to a post about Google and privacy. I’ll toss in some of my own thoughts as a bonus.
I believe subliminal advertising works, but does it really work this well?
I think we all make seemingly conscious decisions that we can’t explain and often the explanations reside in our subconscious mind. I think we all can be affected by images we come in contact with, but never consciously perceive. I think it operates in much the same way that advertisers hope we’ll associate a specific brand with a catchy jingle or how by seeing an ad over and over again we’ll eventually buy a product even if we haven’t seen that ad in quite some time.
But really, does it work anywhere as well as it does in this video? I’m thinking no.
