WordPress is 10 years old today: Here’s how it’s changed the Web – thnxz @TheNextWeb


WordPress, the blogging and content management system, is 10-years old today.

The platform has evolved in the past decade from being a basic blogging service to something that has helped people and brands become more social and changed how we communicate on the Web.

157762876 520x370 WordPress is 10 years old today: Heres how its changed the Web
By 

Started by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little, WordPress is an open source service where anyone can make modifications to the code to improve their blog and make it something that works for them.

Bloggers who use WordPress are able to apply design themes to their sites while also integrating third-party plugins easily. Since it’s open source software, there isn’t a need for an approval process before someone can implement a new feature.

As of this writing, the latest version of WordPress has been downloaded more than 21 million times.

Has it already been a decade?

For Mullenweg, hitting the decade mark was a bit startling for him. In a blog post, he waxed nostalgia about the platform he helped create:

Has it really been 10 years? It seems just yesterday we were playing around on my blog, and the blogs of a few high school friends. Two of those friends are married, one isn’t anymore, two are still figuring things out, and one has passed away.

You were cute before you became beautiful. Wearing black and white, afraid of color, trying to be so unassuming. I know you got jealous when I wore those Blogger t-shirts. They were the cool kids at SxSW and I thought maybe you could grow up to be like them.

You wouldn’t have shirts of your own for a few more years. We didn’t know what we were doing when we made them and the logo printed ginormous. People called them the Superman shirt and made fun of them. But, oh, that logo — the curves fit you so well.

WordPress emerged onto the scene when users had the option of posting their thoughts on services like XangaLiveJournalMySpace, and Blogger. One difference between all of these other systems and WordPress was the option for users to simply download the platform and install it right onto their own servers. With this self-hosted model, Mullenweg managed to help make it more accessible and flexible for not only users, but for businesses who wanted more control.

“El Día de las redes”, un día a favor de una ONG – @IAB_Spain


por iabspain 

 

  • El Día de las Redes es una iniciativa que parte de la Comisión de Redes Publicitarias de IAB Spain.

Madrid, 11 de marzo de 2013IAB Spain, asociación que representa al sector de la publicidad, el marketing y la comunicación digital en España, ha puesto en marcha junto a su Comisión de Redes Publicitarias, el proyecto “El Día de las redes”, una iniciativa  en la que empresas asociadas cedieron su inventario durante un día a favor de una  ONG.

Con este proyecto se persiguió demostrar el alcance que se puede conseguir mediante este tipo de publicidad en una campaña real. Para ello, el pasado 20 de febrero, diversas redes publicitarias que participan en el proyecto, cedieron parte de su inventario publicitario a la Asociación Española de Síndrome de Lowe, que protagonizó la campaña.

El Día de las Redes tenía como objetivo alcanzar el mayor número de usuarios únicos posible en un solo día. Se utilizaron formatos estándar integrados (superbanner, robapáginas y rascacielos), que se lanzaron en los sites que representan las redes participantes en el proyecto.

Como resultado, se lanzaron durante el día 20 de febrero, un total de 16,3 millones de impactos publicitarios, a una audiencia de 7.425.014 usuarios únicos. Dicha cifra representa el 42% de la cobertura del universo total de internet en un día, según datos Comscore Enero 2013.

Estos resultados ponen de manifiesto mediante éste caso práctico, las elevadas coberturas a las que se puede llegar mediante una campaña publicitaria digital realizada por redes publicitarias.

Según de la Asociación Española Síndrome de Lowe“Queremos agradecer enormemente a las redes publicitarias y a IAB Spain esta iniciativa, que nos ha permitido comunicar nuestro mensaje de una forma muy eficiente a más de 7 millones de personas en un día, representa un 16% del total de la población española. Esto nos ha servido para comprobar el  gran potencial del medio y conseguir alcanzar grandes coberturas con nuestras campañas.”

The Data Providers: One Quadrant Chart To Rule Them All // thnxz adexchanger.com – @adexchanger @nycmcg


 

“Data Driven Thinking” is written by members of the media community and contains fresh ideas on the digital revolution in media.

ramsey-ddt

Today’s column is by Ramsey McGrory, President & CEO of AddThis.

Follow Ramsey McGrory (@nycmcg)

In the world of magic quadrant charts, I like this as a starting point for a discussion about data:

 

Starting with the Conclusion 

Access to data is not a commodity, and it won’t be in 10 or 20 years. After all the regulatory and privacy questions are settled, advertising, publishing and e-commerce will be powered by a combination of offline, online, anonymous and personal data. The companies that emerge as long-term leaders will be the ones that provide infrastructure, distribution and services that power the smartest consumer engagement tools with the variety, velocity and volume of data available.

mcgrory-1

If you spend time considering the moves of consumer technology and diversified IT companies, you will realize how data is the thread that binds it together. To deliver on the vision of holistic consumer engagement, there are three critical layers: infrastructure, data, and services. While infrastructure commoditizes over time, the ability to leverage and understand data does not. So, staying in one quadrant is dangerous given the competitive landscape.

Setting the Table

The infrastructure for consumer engagement started consolidating in 2007 when Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, WPP, AOL and others acquired ad servers. That consolidation continues today among DSPs, DCOs, SSPs, DMPs, website analytics and most recently social CRM players. The strategy of many large companies in the digital B2B and B2C spaces is to consolidate the ‘paid, earned, owned’ infrastructure where a brand’s consumer engagement is managed centrally based on any and all touch points.

As the largest companies move from strategy to execution, data grows in importance. In its many forms, data is being infused into advertising, publishing and e-commerce, and fueling material improvements at each point in the value chains of advertising (research, planning, targeting, measuring) and publishing / e-commerce (attract audience, engage, monetize, measure).

The Evolving Data Landscape

As the variety, velocity and volume of data increase, it’s worth looking at the different players. My intention is to create a framework and provide examples rather than be Terry Kawaja here.

mcgrory-2

On the X-axis, imagine two ends of a ‘visibility’ spectrum – Aggregated / Anonymous and Personal. On the Y-axis, imagine two ends of a ‘source’ spectrum – Offline and Online.

In the A quadrant, there are a number of examples of offline anonymous data such as censuscrime statistics or government spending. In the B quadrant, examples of this data are voter file, criminal records, retail data co-ops, transactional data sets and measurement panels. Many companies aggregate, maintain, analyze and activate these data sets for outbound marketing, direct mail, CRM, POS and political campaigns. There are scale players such as Experian, Acxiom, Equifax and Nielsen and vertical players such as IXI (finance), Catalina (retail) and Polk (auto). These businesses have operated for decades.

Why Women Make Better Business Leaders | via One Minute MBA


There’s no question that women are making large strides in U.S. business and technology fields. Today’s generation of women professionals are more likely than any other to found, lead or advise a major U.S. firm. But while women continue to secure increasingly high-level leadership positions, there are still some glaring imbalances. For one, only twelve Fortune 500 companies are now headed by women. And numbers on the proportion of female tech startup founders are not any more encouraging; many high-profile incubators report that women founders receive less than 5% of their annual grant awards.

onlinemba.com

But recent research from the Harvard Business Review and others suggests something that most of us already know–firms without women in high-level leadership positions are missing out on some meaningful growth opportunities. According to the research, women that excel in business often prove to have more highly developed communication skills than their male colleagues. Women are also often more likely to take initiative and make changes to the status quo. In fact, the study showed that firms with women on their boards saw 42% higher sales returns, a 66% higher return on invested capital and a 53% higher return on equity over firms that did not.

The following infographic sheds light on the early days of Aol, Yahoo!, Altavista, Myspace, Digg, and Facebook.

Amazing SEO Pointers That Are Guaranteed To Work


See on Scoop.itGabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives

Amazing SEO Pointers That Are Guaranteed To Work (Amazing SEO Pointers That Are Guaranteed To Work http://t.co/cbQd0ibQ...)…

If you do not perform the proper SEO tactics, nobody is going to find your site. The tips in this article can help you make your website more visible.

Increasing your ranking on search engines will allow your regular customers to access your site. Unfortunately, some online businesses still underestimate the importance of their search engine rankings.

Duplicating content on your site will penalize you, by reducing the rank of your page. Instead, think of something new to write about to attract a different audience.

Anchor Text
The correct anchor text is very important when linking internally on your website. Do not just put “click here” because this will not do anything for SEO. A better option is to employ descriptive keywords for your anchor text. This makes your page seem more relevant to the search engine spiders, helping to boost your overall rankings as a result.

Talk with an education or non-profit website to see if they will provide a link on their site to content on your site. Search engines look at results from these sites differently and rank them higher because they are considered reputable sources of information. Provide high-quality information that will entice reliable websites to want to feature your site. Write useful articles that these types of organizations don’t have on their own sites.

Make sure that you have a good description tag, so that search engines will direct your target customers to your website. Such a tag should not exceed the length of thirty words. Never go over 100 KB for this particular page.

TIP! Remember that search engines won’t be able to index anything that’s in a video. If you site is flush with videos, you have a little extra work to do.
You will want to put a lot of knowledge on your website but stick with your niche. For example, if the topic of your blog is baseball, you can write about baseball cards, baseball players, or even equipment for playing baseball. By providing a wide array of articles centered around specific subjects, you increase the likelihood that your site will appear near the top of search results. Sigue leyendo

Yahoo considering rebranding?


webdesignerdepot.com

This is the logo you may be soon looking at whenever you point your browser to yahoo.com

The Internet giant have not yet made an official announcement about any change on their identity, but a TechCrunch reader was asked to give a feedback on a new Yahoo! logo while answering an online survey.

Besides the change of color from purple to a deep blue, which actually still has a lot of purple in it, the most noticeable feature change is the choice for a sans-serif type giving a much more “vertical” look to the new brand. I can’t say that I don’t like it, because the new brand does appeal to me, but letting the Yahoo! serifs go is quite a shame; and they have such a well established identity that I think the great majority of users will miss the old version.

Take a look at the question and compare both versions:

One thing is certain, the question in itself is not a guarantee that any change will happen. According to TechCrunch, here’s what a Yahoo! spokesperson said about the online survey: Sigue leyendo

Spotbros: sobre David, Goliath y las estrategias (moderadamente) provocativas

Como comenté en esta entrada anterior, estoy trabajando con mis amigos de Spotbros en el lanzamiento de su mensajería instantánea segura y social, intentando convertirla en la alternativa a una WhatsApp que es líder de mercado hasta el punto de haberse convertido en genérico conversacional (“te mando un guasap” o incluso “teguasapeo“).

La realidad es la que es: WhatsApp tiene una masa crítica de muchos millones de usuarios, pero es un verdadero desastre en lo que a seguridad serefiere. Pero enfrentarse a un líder de mercado en función de un criterio que, paradójicamente, parece poco apreciado por una base de usuarios, resulta como mínimo complejo. El usuario medio de WhatsApp llega a él por la enorme simplicidad de su proceso de registro y construcción de red, y aparentemente, no tiene ningún tipo de problema en seguir utilizando una herramienta en la que cualquiera puede hacerse pasar por él,  cambiar su status, enviarle mensajes no deseados o interceptar sus conversaciones.

A LIST Apart: For People Who Make Websites

Responsive Comping: Obtaining Signoff without Mockups

If you’re making websites, chances are you’ve given some thought to what constitutes a responsive-friendly design process—and you’ve probably found that adding a mockup for every breakpoint isn’t a sustainable approach. Designing in code sounds like the answer, but you may be mystified at where to begin—or feel unmoored and disoriented at the prospect of giving up the approach you’ve long relied on. Enter responsive comping. This new, mockup-less web design process makes it easy to get that Photoshop monkey off your back, and have a fresh new beginning with your old friend the web browser.

Tablets and smartphones drive e-Commerce in Asia: Visa

SINGAPORE – The growth of smartphones and tablets, along with an improved perception of security is leading the internet to play a significantly bigger role in consumption across Asia, according to a recent study published by Visa.

Tablets and smartphones drive e-Commerce in Asia: Visa

Improved security perception is leading consumers to purchase online, according to Visa

In economies where smartphone and tablet penetration are high, consumers are already showing a tendency of picking up products through their phones or tablets. Of the 8,000 consumers surveyed, four in ten said they browsed products on their phones or tablet device last year. In fact, browsing on mobile phones exceeded 40 per cent in Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore. Hong Kong saw 13 per cent of its online purchases on mobile phones and 11 per cent on tablets.

“The prevalence of smartphones and tablets translates to easier online access for consumers to retailers anytime, anywhere, and we expect to see more people browsing and shopping on-the-go as a result,” said Paul Jung, Visa’s head of e-Commerce solutions for Asia, Central Europe, Middle East and Africa.

How to Choose the Best WordPress Hosting

 by  

Two of the most important things for a web developer to consider is the web hosting company they will use and the type of hosting package they will choose. There are a lot of options and unfortunately, not all of them are right for hosting a WordPress website.

WordPress Specifics

There are a few things that are required in order to effectively run WordPress on a web hosting account. However, there are a few specifics that must be adhered to in order to run the latest versions of WordPress.

  • PHP – Version 5.2.4 or greater.
  • MySQL – Version 5.0 or greater.

Most web hosting companies not only support WordPress and its requirements, but there are many that will install the latest version for you on your server as a part of your set-up service at no extra charge.

Love at first click | ioninteractive.com


First impressions matter.

For a large number of prospects in the digital world, their first impression of you is what happens when they click on one of your ads. Maybe it was a display ad that caught their eye. Maybe it was a search ad that appeared on a Google results page for a topic they were researching. Maybe it was a sponsored link in Twitter that aligned with their social interests.

For a brief, magical moment in a ridiculously noisy and crowded marketplace, you’ve caught their interest.

That’s a heroic accomplishment, and one that you no doubt paid handsomely to achieve. A recent IDC report on high-tech marketing budgets shows marketers allocating 23.6% of their digital spend on display ads and 15.9% on search ads. That’s a lot of money being spent to win that moment of attention.

But if someone clicks on your ad — another brief but crucial victory! — how do you capitalize on that moment that you’ve invested so much to win?

The baseline is giving them what you promised in that ad. It’s a complete fail if you don’t.

(Surprisingly, there are still a large number of companies advertising on the web that don’t cross that very low bar. Don’t take my word for it. Do a Google search on something of commercial intent, read the ads, and click through to their destinations. How many fulfill their promise? How many fail? For most categories, it’s a sorry ratio of broken promises.)

Members Speak Out: The Growing Importance of Visual Content Creation in the Paid, Owned and Earned Media Mix


paidOwnedEarned01c.jpeg

Recently there has been significant attention given to the growing importance of “visual content” as part of the paid, owned and earned media marketing mix. The headlines tell the story:

forbes1.png

Beyond the obvious of visually enhancing your online content and helping to give your brand an identity, it is clear that images, whether they are photography, video or infographics, are playing an increasingly important strategic role on many fronts. From content sharing and user generated content, to driving referral traffic and impact on SEO ranking, the discussion about visual content creation is intensifying daily.

A recent and widely circulated infographic from M Booth well illustrates the growing importance of visual content in social media. We asked new IAB member Shareaholic, whose Traffic Sources data is featured in this infographic, to provide some perspective on their findings, and to share their thoughts on how visual content is impacting the paid, owned and earned media mix including what may be in store for the future.

headshot.png“The data shown in the M Booth infographic is based on traffic trends to our publisher network websites, which show that Pinterest is now the fourth largest source of referral traffic, exceeding Twitter and Google referral traffic and, for the first time, exceeding Yahoo! Organic. It is interesting to note is that Pinterest isn’t even in our top 10 most popular social networks for social sharing – meaning that click-throughs on pins are driven by a smaller percentage of organic pins.”
