Zazzle Media’s second annual “State of SEO survey” has assessed the value and ROI of SEO, looking at its impact in securing funds or resources. The data suggested that 60% of marketers find that resources and a shortage of budget are the main reasons they don’t spend more on organic search activity. However, almost a third of surveyed marketers still don’t know how to measure the impact of SEO on their results.
The Game (Amazon, iTunes, and Vudu). This film was recommended to me by the maverick Adam Robinson. The Game is intense, idea-catalyzing, and… did I mention intense? If you think you, perhaps, just sometimes, take yourself too seriously (and who doesn’t?), this is good medicine. Here’s the description: “Nicholas Van Orton [played by Michael Douglas] is a very wealthy San Francisco banker, but he is an absolute loner, even spending his birthday alone. In the year of his 48th birthday (the age his father committed suicide) his brother Conrad, who has gone long ago and surrendered to addictions of all kinds, suddenly returns and gives Nicholas a card giving him entry to unusual entertainment provided by something called Consumer Recreation Services (CRS).” For those who know this film, does anything close to CRS exist in real life somewhere? If so, please do let me know on Twitter at @tferriss.
