Twitter Reaches Deal With Google To Boost Online Presence

Posted by Brad Duchaine | Marketing,Online Presence | Friday 13 February 2015 12:00 am

Twitter has reached a deal with Google to make its short messages become more visible on the Internet and boost its online presence.

Under the deal, tweets will show up with Google engine searches as soon as they are posted in the first half of the year to give Google access to the flow of Twitter’s 284 million users.

From now on, Google will go to search information on the Twitter web site and the process will become automatic.

Twitter is trying to expand its audience and generate more ad resources and is keen to make a strong statement with its online marketing efforts despite not making any profit in this year. Twitter said it will allow its advertisers to run ads on web sites outside its network. Twitter, which also provides data to Microsoft Corp.’s Bing search service and Yahoo! Inc., is trying to draw more people to its site as user growth slows. A few days back, Twitter announced deals to show advertising in Flipboard Inc.’s mobile application and with Yahoo Japan Corp.

The renewed relationship would benefit both companies “given Google’s desire for greater relevance on mobile and in real- time, and Twitter’s desire to extend reach and monetization,” Colin Sebastian, an analyst with Robert W Baird & Co., wrote in a note. The “new partnership would suggest Google is less likely to acquire Twitter,” he wrote.

Twitter rose 3.3% to $42.05 at 9:31 a.m. New York time. Through yesterday’s close, the stock had advanced 14% this year. Google added 0.3% to $527.50.

Small Traders Urged To Enhance Online Presence

Posted by Sara | Online Presence | Thursday 20 December 2012 4:52 am

During a recent briefing by top officials of Internet giant Google, it is time to start changing directions if the growth strategy of your company does not involve building a strong online presence. The reason provided was because your company faces the very real possibility of eating the dust left behind by more aggressive competitors that are embracing the power of the World Wide Web.

Small Traders Urged To Enhance Online Presence

Google predicted that between 2012 and 2015, 500 million new users from emerging markets—including the Philippines- will go online and this represents a potential for all companies online.

The World Wide Web was transforming small businesses as they now realize that their market can be quickly and affordably expanded beyond their home country by just being present online, thus they are diversifying their operations to include the Internet, said Ghislain Le Chatelier, regional head for small and medium businesses in Southeast Asia.

“Digital marketing helps small businesses look big. It allows them to scale, expand their reach and have access to new countries, new clients and markets. It also allows firms to be very efficient in terms of targeting customers,” says Le Chatelier.

Le Chatelier says Google is thus on hand to show that going online is not as difficult as small and medium firms may think. “Once they are online, they can join a four-week success plan to build and grow their business. SMBs can reach out to business partner teams in their home country that will help them expand, optimize and grow their online presence,” says Le Chatelier.

Shares slip in thin trade

Posted by Sara | Online Presence | Thursday 29 December 2011 5:24 am

Shares slip in thin tradeOn Wednesday, Asian markets eased in low volume with many market players away for year-end holidays. On the other hand, oil kept gains from the previous day on worries about possible supply disruptions after Iran threatened to stop the flow of oil from the Gulf.

“More people want to bring their positions to neutral ahead of the new year’s holidays than look for bargain hunting, and that’s keeping prices depressed in low volumes,” said Tetsuro Ii, the president of Commons Asset Management in Tokyo.

“The only way Iran would actually close Hormuz is when it is attacked and war breaks, but such a possibility appears low as no country would want to take the risk when growth worldwide was likely to slow down,” said Naohiro Niimura, a partner at research and consulting firm Market Risk Advisory Co.

Success at Workplace-Inspiring Quotations

Posted by Sara | Online Presence | Friday 3 September 2010 2:58 am

Success at Workplace -Inspiring QuotationsIf motivation has been one thing eluding you for one reason or the other, there is good news for you. This blog, which is a compilation of inspiring quotations by eminent personalities of the world, will surely help you see the brighter side of life.

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible. – T. E. Lawrence

Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living. – Anais Nin

I have always been amazed at the way an ordinary observer lends so much more credence and attaches so much more importance to waking events than to those occurring in dreams… Man… is above all the plaything of his memory. – Andre Breton

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours. – Henry David Thoreau

No one should negotiate their dreams. Dreams must be free to fly high. No government, no legislature, has a right to limit your dreams. You should never agree to surrender your dreams. – Jesse Jackson

So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable. – Christopher Reeve

We all dream; we do not understand our dreams, yet we act as if nothing strange goes on in our sleep minds, strange at least by comparison with the logical, purposeful doings of our minds when we are awake. – Erich Fromm

Leading Companies of the World

Posted by Sara | Online Presence | Wednesday 14 July 2010 5:46 am

Leading Companies of the WorldFinding a place in the list of the Forbes Global 2000 is considered as a great achievement, to say the least.

The latest list of Forbes’ ranking of the world’s biggest companies is out and this year’s list highlights the dynamism of global business.

Apple, Google, McDonald’s, and Nike were the top performers in the United States as per the list.

From in.news.yahoo.com:

Forbes’ ranking of the world’s biggest companies departs from lopsided lists based on a single metric, like sales. Instead we use an equal weighting of sales, profits, assets and market value to rank companies according to size. This year’s list reveals the dynamism of global business. The rankings span 62 countries, with the U.S. (515 members) and Japan (210 members) still dominating the list, but with a combined 33 fewer entries.

This year, the following countries gained the most ground: mainland China (113 members), India (56 members) and Canada (62 members). Even Oman and Lebanon are now Global 2000 members. Also gaining a significant presence on our list this year are corporations from Ireland, South Africa and Sweden.

In total the Global 2000 companies now account for $30 trillion in revenues, $1.4 trillion in profits, $124 trillion in assets and $31 trillion in market value. All metrics are down from last year, except for market value, which rose 61%.

An analysis of the Global 2000 shows that despite the turmoil in the financial sector, banks still dominate, with 308 companies in the 2000 lineup, thanks in large measure to their asset totals. The oil and gas industry, with 115 companies, scores high in sales, profits and stock-market value, yet these sectors were not the leaders in growth over the past year. Insurance companies (up 27%) led all sectors in sales growth, while the leaders in profit growth were drugs and biotech firms (up 20%).

The list included eminent companies such as Belgium’s Anheuser-Busch Inbev, H&M (Sweden), and Honda Motor (Japan).
