Our 'best of' of September content, including the latest developments in social media and some helpful SEO articles.
First up, the news that Google was rolling out its Knowledge Graph feature globally (but only in English).
Next up an interesting series of articles published by the BBC on optimising the news for search engines. It's great to get an inside look at the techniques used by global news resources to ensure their news is optimised for search...
However, here's another headline that caught our eye which may nullify most of the techniques outlined by the BBC, namely the reintroduction of the keywords meta tag for new sources.
We also enjoyed this excellent, in-depth Econsultancy article on page-centric SEO strategies.
In social media the news that Google+ is introducing tools for business prompted several cries of 'finally!' and some slightly cynical smirks.
We were also heartened to hear that Facebook has suspended its automatic photo-tagging and facial recognition tool in Europe.
In other news, re-targeting and paid search are apparently coming to Facebook, LinkedIn announced a 'new look' for its somewhat beleaguered (and widely under-used) company pages and the ever-vigilant 'The Next Web' claimed that a new gifts system is set to completely change Facebook.
That's it for this month. If we missed any big developments, let us know in the comments.
