Fabulous Friday: SEO Infographics R Us!
Well, Thursday night really, but hey this is the only chance I’ll have in getting my normal Friday blog piece done and posted…because of my total commitment to our StartUpWeekend Hamilton:2 that begins tomorrow up at our Mohawk College and runs for three days straight!
<grin> My commercial over and if you read here regularily you know that I often intersperse my Canadian SEO practice with a recap the week’s best Infographics and this week is no different, eh!
And so I begin with an old friend, Yahoo. I go back so far with this search engine that I remember when it was called something else…and in the 18+ years since I first went to their directory to find data, all I can say is “gee, fellas…what the heck happened?” Like our own A&W drive-in restaurants up here in Canada that had a lock on the early market for fast food and who obviously fell asleep and let folks like McDonalds surpass them in spades, Yahoo has been so totally poorly run, poorly managed and poorly performing that it’s just a shame for the founders!
Sure I know that there is a new CEO and I think he has just about the toughest job on the web in trying to rebuild Yahoo back into the power that it once was. Will Thompson be able to do that – I dont know…but it’s IMHO the job of the year…and here’s an Infographic on the actual state of Yahoo right now, reported here by eConsultancy but the original I think is from High Table.
Moving away from those who aren’t doing so well, I would like to point out that one of the developers that I very much like – Joost de Valk who has created some amazing WordPress plugins – has had the following Infographic made for him by Design by Soap, and it can be found here along with many other great examples of this type of mining data visually.
These are pretty interesting numbers and from what I can gather they’re based on Joost’s own 3 million downloads of his own Google Analytics WordPress plugin and from there he got more data from Experian to help flesh out this lengthy infographic. Do give it a look/see…the statistics are fairly new to me and surprising too!
And to finish off this post, I thought it necessary to add one more great infographic, from Adam Sherk, a blogger who’s on my daily list and I drop by to see what he has to say on a regular basis. Up at the Enterprise level, Adam is fairly well known in the SEO world and this infographic – by him mind you – is a great one. If you look at anything from this blog post of mine….click here to see what I mean and remember….information in an infographic is the real item that one needs to pass along….and if you click on Adam’s link….you’ll see what I mean, eh!
Have a great weekend….and I’m ready for a full weekend of startups!Google
