Google Voice SMS Email Notification

I’ve just put up the beta version of Google Voice SMS Email Notification.  When you get a SMS to your google voice number, it will be forwarded to your registered email address.

It’s very simple. Just login with your google email adress and password.  New SMSs will be forwarded to your email account.

@Stocktwits and @Shakeshack maps

Here are two well-known (at least based on my friends both on twitter and my off-line friends) brands.

Both @StockTwits and @Shakeshack auto-follow, so it’s a good example of the mapping of their respective followers.

stocktwits map
@stocktwits – strong US following, especially along the East Coast and a good showing in Europe.

shakeshack
@shakeshack – very similar to @stocktwits in the US and Europe, non in South America but 3 in Australia.

I will revisit these maps in 1 months time to see the differences.

Check out the map of my tweeps.

Map My Tweeps for Lmai US

I’m very concentrated in the US as you can see.
The next photo shows more detail of my follwers and the people I follow.

Map My Tweeps for Lmai US

There’s obvious concentration on the East and West coasts, but there’s an interesting bunching in the Atlanta, Georgia area.

Beta Launch of MapMyTweeps

I was interested in seeing the geographical diversity of my Twitter friends and followers.

I finally found this Yahoo Pipe by Andy M called Twitter Friends, but it wasn’t everything I was looking for.

I wanted to combine both on a single map with different colors and also show mutual following relationships.  Google maps provided that flexibility.

Check it out and let me know your thoughts.

SEO Checklist

Short list of things to do for SEO

Content

  1. Provide content, not just links, not just images.
  2. Use meta-data to describe your site and content.
  3. Check for broken links and correct HTML.
  4. Fill in “alt” in your image tags.

Backend

https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/dashboard – submit/verify your website, create a sitemap

Completing these steps will make sure you get listed on search engines and prepare you for the next steps – marketing and building links.

See Vaughns Google search engine SERP Ranking Factors SEO Checklist for a much more detailed and comprehensive list than what I have here.
Vaughn also lists things to avoid.  Which is just as, if not more, important than things to do.
