  • Blog Plagiarism @ Jupiter Media? - Scott Clark - SEO, SEM, ORM and Content Marketing
    Chinese knock offs that say Sone Playstaten this one even disabled the links Ug Lastly I m not used to this in the blogosphere I circulate in A blog is mean to be authentic transparent and to help us learn about the very essence of the organization or person writing it It builds trust that is returned through through comments links and attribution To copy posts from those who spend the time and energy to create great stuff is to break trust and people are getting called out about it This stuff wouldn t be tolerated in print so why would it be online It s not that they had a RSS feed forum posts or blog excerpts which can be done in a respectful way that in my non attorney opinion invokes fair use They copied the whole damn thing I ve been told the readership of creativebits is a small group but I ask what is a small group on the public Internet and does that matter The post shows up in Google in Technorati and other search engines So please find a better excuse So have I missed something about the blogosphere fair use and what has transpired Do you agree with my point of view As I had review creativebits org I find great content some very interesting posts and a lot to like But until they start giving authors their due they ll have to do without this Kentuckian s participation and link equity If this is happening to you there are some great resources on the issue you should check out But most importantly keep your cool and enjoy life blogging Sphinn 2 comments on Blog Plagiarism Jupiter Media Jesse Thompson says December 9 2007 at 5 36 pm Content stealing is certainly on the rise Social bookmarking sites drive traffic to places where people who don t do a lot of research think they have found cool stuff This opens the door to plagerism which I feel is sharply becoming epidemic I found the creativebits article via stumbleupon Yesterday probably 1 3 of the sites I stumbled were recognized as I may have also missed some stolen content It is a little too much to ask to expect stumblers or diggers to research content duplication So I think the best cure to this disease would be if the social bookmarking sites did some automated research to determine content duplication an automated google search for well chosen body content would be a nice start and if they also made it easy for concerned citizens to report content duplication where the reporter pastes the source link system could possibly check pages for some pre screening of the claim to reduce human intervention This will happen when one of the sites steps up or a new site has this feature or Google enters the arena with it s fabulous auto fraud detect AI But it will happen I ll just hunker down and wait Jesse Michael

  • 5 Methods to Track Offline Conversions - and Plug Huge Marketing Budget Leaks. - Scott Clark - SEO, SEM, ORM and Content Marketing
    of ad networks and the inaccurate recall of humans this method usually gives only about marginally acceptable accuracy and only at the highest granularity This can also include catalog IDs coupons or other special numbers on the website that appear as a result of a certain traffic source as has long been done with print catalogs Sometimes associating free offers or discounts with these codes can significantly increase their utilization but at added expense Poor man s IVR means that you have a different phone number displayed for paid search Simple as that On the PPC destination URL you provide enough information that you can parse and process a parameter which causes your phone number to change and to write a cookie which keeps it set to the same number for a period of time e g 15 days Writing it to the cookie helps to manage the fact that many many sites only sell after 3 4 visits I define an IVR solution as either the use of many different phone numbers or the use of extensions to watch the behavior of the user The different phone number method is by far the most sophisticated but it has many difficulties such as recycling of numbers and added cost Clickpath is an example of a fully fleshed out service businesses can use for tracking The extensions based system suffers from caller laziness A 2 digit extension usually works great but many people will hit 0 before the phone even starts ringing for a good article on evaluating IVRs check out crimsonnet s post on the issue The part number modification method means that you append your regular real world part numbers or product descriptions with a tracking code that the customer perceives as important The modification is then written to a x day cookie on the customer s machine One phone orders the system is low friction and accurate even when the customer is just getting pricing The visitor will provide a part number that may include G12 which could represent Google Adgroup 5 Keyword 12 This could be tied in with the IVR extensions method as well where a correlation in part number modification and extension helps to keep things as simple as possible in reporting Part 5315 no SE association Part 5315 G12 SE Google Ad setup 12 cookie G12 Part 5315 G0205 SE Google Adgroup 2 Ad 5 cookie G12 you get the jist of it Clearly there is overhead to any of these tracking methods but in every case it requires the paid search marketer to maintain a tight methodology If the codes are out there and being used for experimentation it s important not to change them willy nilly Everyone must be on board with the intent and the deployment which encourages the involvement of everyone in the company in the conversion rate ultimately the bottom line but in a way that causes very little extra work And we all love that analytics conversion tracking
