    The Internet has freed up the way in which we communicate. Companies can engage with their customers without the usual boundaries (although many still fail), consumers can find what they need in minutes without leaving their home or office and information can be shared globally in real-time.

    But the many benefits of the Internet are often overshadowed by an equally prevalent dark underbelly of crime and social apprehension. The freedom with which we are able to provide details and thoughts, has spread fear, mistrust and abuses right throughout the world.

    Firefox

    First Google siphoned off keyword data from Analytics, with (not provided) becoming the top referring term for many site owners overnight. Now Mozilla are getting involved, with their Firefox browser encrypting search queries behind a HTTPS connection. So what does this mean for Analytics users?

    Laughing at CompSo, another year has passed and some classic April Fools gags have been made (I think Google have won this year with their litany of gags, from the Google 8-Bit Maps for NES to the YouTube collection on DVD).

    Opinion: Many UK Retailers Not Converting The Black Friday Sales Hype

    Black Friday On ‘Black Friday’ I saw a mass of hype on the Black Friday Sales and Cyber Monday deals across the web. It wasn’t just from the US blogs and news websites, but from the leading UK ones too. So what’s wrong with that? Well if you try to actually find the deals it becomes apparent that the majority of them are not that visible and do not live up to the hype.

    A Guide to Yahoo's Potential Buyers

    The murmurings surrounding the sale of Yahoo are growing. It seems each week we’re talking about another Internet company as a potential buyer of the former search giant, but just who, if anyone, is going to buy the struggling Internet Corporation?

    Despite Jerry Yang saying the company was not up for sale at the start of the month, it has been mooted that they are now looking at potential buyers. Some bidders sit as outstanding candidates, others are more speculative, so here is a guide to the names and players who are being touted as potential suitors.

    Is Online Censorship a Good Thing?

    Censorship is a subject that always divides opinions. Some see it as a protective barrier between the general public and indecency, others as a form of unnecessary outside intervention.

    When Google deliberately flouted censorship rules in China, they were promptly booted out of the country. Australia has been slowly moving towards ratifying a policy to prevent its citizens from viewing particular content, most notably adult material – although this hasn’t proved popular with all, including the US. Now it appears that the UK might be next to follow suit, albeit with the option to opt-in.

    My First Public Speaking Appearance

    On the 22nd September 2011, I made my first appearance on a stage at OMN London alongside Mike Essex where we presented our tactics for dominating page one of the search results for a brand. If you had asked me six months ago whether I would have done something like this, the answer would have been a definite NO! However, I overcame my fears and stood up in front of approximately 300 people with an interest in digital marketing and presented to them.

    From speaking to people in the industry over the past three years, public speaking is a fear of many people and I wanted to put together this post to share some of my thoughts and tell you how I went about combating that fear in 15 steps.

    Why New Domain Extensions Create New Problems for Businesses

    Domain NamesAny business wants to do everything it can to protect its brand identity, online and off. You don’t want others besmirching your good name or succeeding off the back of it.

    This is why domain squatting became such huge business in the last decade. You could buy up any number of .com’s, .co.uk’s or anything else with a company’s name attached and wait for them to come and ask you for the rights. If they didn’t cough up, you could (theoretically at least) put whatever you wanted on that domain.
