The Web 2.0 Event of the Year – Web 2.0 Summit – Web Squared #w2s

There were so many great events in the past few days. The big events that caught my eye were: Web 2.0 Summit 2009 #w2s , Blog World – New Media Expo 2009 #bwe09, and TWTRCON DC 09 #twtrcon. The Summit was outstanding and easy to follow online.  John Battelle, Tim O’Reilly, and all the people supporting this event did an outstanding job!  There was an avalanche of news released about all levels of technology, including Twitter, Google, Bing, Facebook, and so much more.  This event was like an intellectual amusement park with thrill after thrill.  Thanks to @JohnBattelle, @timoreilly, and the crew at @web2summit for another thrilling event. Thanks to all the guests, attendees, and fans for sharing #w2s

WEB 2.0 A STRATEGY GUIDE By Amy Shuen

Web 2.0: A Strategy Guide
Web 2.0: A Strategy Guide

Amy Shuen has a firm grip on the long tail. Get your face in this book and don’t blink while she takes you on a fascinating journey to the tipping point fueled by the wisdom of crowds. My space on the shelf for this book is empty because her book is always in my hand. I bought several copies of her book as gifts for friends.

Amy Shuen is to the world of Web 2.0 as Ludwig van Beethoven’s influence is to the world of music. Her impact on web strategy is comparable to da Vinci’s impact on art. She is ahead of her time. Get her book before the ground swell from tribes of new influencers leaves you in a wikinomic downturn.

I have been in the web business since the early 90s. I am a professional technology consultant and thought leader. I have a huge collection of books, papers, & resources related to my industry and Amy’s book is my most prized possession. I recommend getting extra copies for you and your colleagues.

One snippet from this book clearly explains how a small strategy adjustment saved a tremendous amount of money for a well known company. Depending on your reach, this tiny snippet can help save you $1,000’s – $1,000,000’s. I would spend far more than the price of this whole book for this one snippet.

One last flckr of thought. What if your competition already has this book?

Get yours now.

Please feel free to check these youtube videos of Amy presenting some of the information in this amazing book.

Google API video overview

The Google Data APIs provide a simple standard protocol for reading and writing data on the web.

These REST-style APIs are based on the Atom Publishing Protocol (AtomPub), using the standard Atom syndication format to represent data and HTTP to handle communication. The Google Data API protocol also extends AtomPub for processing queries, authentication, batch requests, and providing alternate output formats (JSON, RSS).

Free SEO benefits from future proof URLs

Future Proof URLs gives you free Search Engine Optimization (SEO) benefits and hide the technology for future modifications of server technology. Most users don’t care about the technology and true social media shares it’s information across multiple platforms.

It’s not easy to understand what this page is about from just a URL that looks like this:

http://trickmandan.com/blog/?p=11

Transform ugly URLs into Search Engine, People friendly URLs with these simple steps in the WordPress Admin Interface.

1. Go to Settings/Permalinks

permalinks view on WordPress Admin
permalinks view on WordPress Admin

2. Select “Day and name”, then click “save changes”

That will change the URL

from this: http://trickmandan.com/blog/?p=11

to this: http://trickmandan.com/blog/2008/11/23/redirect-root-requests-to-your-blog/

This strategy will give Search Engines some clues on how to index this page. User friendly URLs will also give users an extra clue on what the page is about.

NOTE: You may need to update your htaccess file in your WordPress directory.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /blog/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /blog/index.php [L]
</IfModule>

This will redirect all requests that are not for actual files or directories to /blog/index.php

The [L] flag says this is the last rule.
