The Dread Pirate Roberts

Jonathan Edward Goodman

by Jonathan Goodman on November 4, 2013

This is Jonathan Goodman. Welcome to another episode of The World of Internet Marketing. This is going to be an interesting podcast because I actually did the podcast on Goggle + Hangouts. As many of you know, I’ve been trying to get more involved with Goggle+. There is “supposedly” an added advantage to optimization for Google now that they’ve rolled out Hummingbird. This is all very interesting. I’m not really seeing it. The conversation does seem to be one-sided. When I say to people in the industry – and it is only SEO optimization people in the industry who are talking in Google+ – they assure me that there are many and even millions of other people having other conversations. I don’t see it. My friends aren’t on there. Nonetheless, what I decided to do for this podcast was to actually first publish it using Google+ Hangouts. I wanted to get familiar with it. I wanted to understand whether I want to do speakers and have a dialogue between multiple people and how that can be handled.

I will say that it was a little bit technically challenging. The advantage is that it immediately gets published on YouTube in your channel. So obviously, the more Goggle+ Hangouts that you do, the more you have a channel and product in that channel that people can see. One of the disadvantages is that it’s not like when I’m working in an audio studio. It’s basically an image of me talking with a video camera. I’m not able to keep track of the time. I was hoping for a 30-minute conversation about today’s topic, the Dread Pirate Roberts which I think is fascinating, but what happened is that it wound up being about 19 minutes. That’s why I’m talking to you before today’s topic. This isn’t filler, but if you want to fast forward for 10 minutes, that’s fine. I do want to talk about a couple of things.

I’m going to be at PubCon in Las Vegas. I’m flying out there on Monday. There is both a speaker networking event at 3:00 and then a 5:00 event for all attendees. After that, it rolls into so many different things. There’s the third annual PubCon gorgefest at the Bellagio. I’m not sure if I’m going to attend that. I’m trying to watch my waist, but I do love the Bellagio. My friend is coming in over the weekend and has strictly forbid me from going to the Bellagio prior to his arrival. I don’t know if I’m going to be able to hold myself to that, especially if there’s a whole bunch of people going to this gorgefest, which sounds fun and a great way to kick off the conference. I’m speaking about schema in the Sematic Markup and Search session at 9:30 on Tuesday. Read the full article →

Dirty Little Secrets

by Jonathan Goodman on June 13, 2013

125x125 - I am Speaking at Affiliate Summit

This is Jonathan Goodman, Welcome to another episode of The World of Internet Marketing. It’s great to have you with us. Today’s topic is “Dirty Little Secrets: The Complacency of the American Individual.” This is going to veer a little bit off-track from what I normally talk about. We’re still going to have our great segments, but I am extremely frustrated with both the news of what’s going on with Verizon and Google and the FBI’s requests for data, mixed in with the news media’s inability to fully educate us on the circumstances, as well as the American individual’s inability to rally the cry against what is becoming a tyrannically led society.

Let me state from the start that I am not a politically active or motivated individual. I partake in voting and that is pretty much the extent of my politics. I don’t feel that things are getting done in Congress. I don’t like what is happening with this data being provided to the NSA and to the FBI. I’m extremely concerned about the slippery path we are on all in the name of protection against terrorism. Although I am deeply concerned, but I am to blame just as everyone is in that I am not marching the streets. I did not partake in any of the Occupy Wall Street movement. I didn’t go down there. I don’t march. I’m extremely passive. But for me, I feel we’ve crossed a critical line in our society, and I’ll get into that more. I’m riled up about this issue, so it’s definitely on the forefront of my thinking, but of course I want to go through all the segments we have on this podcast and then do justice to this topic.
