Hello Readers,

Ok, so today’s blog post is about LinkedIn change for short URL. I am sure, by now, you all are aware about the new LinkedIn policy updates related to LinkedIn groups & new changes to your linkedIn profile. But, I am prety sure that you might have missed this very important change of LinkedIn.

LinkedIn update on Short URL

Recently, I have observed that, Updated LinkedIn profile do not support few URL shorteners like bit.ly. Many of the links where URL shorten were used (specifically with bit.ly free version) are getting broken & landing to error pages. However if you are still using an old profile, you might not have noticed this but with the new profile its giving error.

Possible Issues :

  • Your earlier links shared with bit.ly might get broken (please cross check- its advisable)
  • tinyurl seems working so far but it may hit just like bit.ly
  • If you are using LinkedIn mainly for marketing then this is alarming as you might need new strategy to share your long URLs.
Possible reasons :
  • One quick possible reason which I figured out is, there are few spamming techniques identified by LinkedIn where these URL shortner method used.
  • Even Google identified some suspicious activity with bit.ly (check this link)

Possible Solutions :

  • Prefer Long URL – if possible
  • Create custom URL shortner (In case if URLs are too long)
  • Temporary solution – tinyurl is still working perfect, so you can use this (till its get hit)

Well, that’s all from my end. Its now your turn to do hit & trial. Awaiting for your responses & any alternative solution if you can suggest here for this issue.

Keep clicking, Keep sharing :)

Twitter Update : Other side of business

I have recently observed that, Twitter has implemented two big changes in its layout as well as functioning areas. One is, as I said, Promoted Tweets. Now, When you login to your twitter screen on the web, on the right hand side column, under trending topics, you will notice the “PROMOTED” tag for any particular topic. Please refer the below image for more explanation.

Twitter Promoted Topics

When you click on that particular trending topic, it will take you to the promoted tweets for the same. It seems like, TWITTER is now moving towards on Google Way to earn the revenue from Advertising Module. It takes a dramatic turn while most of us were predicting that, Twitter might be a tough competitor for Google but, instead Twitter silently & slowly taking few turning step to create its own brand & start a seprate advertisng module.

Link Shortening Services : Risk or not to risk ?

Being in the search industry for 5+ years, I have witnessed many changes and updates of the search industry and I have learned that, it’s very important to analyze any new services before using it. One of the such most popular service is “URL shortening services

Before going further, lets discuss WHY people felt need of such service. With the increase in usage of micro blogging sties like TWITTER where there is limitation of 140 characters; people felt a need to some solution to shorten the URL, so that they can utilize the 140 characters at most. Not only Twitter, LinkedIn & other such Social networking sites have put this limitation on the users. Few of the market watchers caught this opportunity & introduced the URL shortening service to help the people and that too free 🙂

The Other side of the business

Now, every new invention has 2 sides, following this universal rule, many spammers have start taking a benefit of the other side of this new service. Read the rest of this entry »

Twitter updated with the option to get trendy topics country specific.

Twitter goes local : Country specific Trends

If you are a regular twitter user, you might be aware about trends followed by # sign & the more it is used, it become the trendy topics of the day. Its a kind of attraction, but now it becomes more specific. You can now get country specific twitter trends.

Twitter Update 2010

So, as you can see in the image, you can select your country from twitter page. But still, not all the countries are listed on twitter. May be, twitter is trying the beta version of this. But still, INDIA is not into the list of countries specified, and no option to add as well, I guess, twitter has listed the country which has more number of twitter users or who tweets from regular basis.

Hello Friends,

To-day, I have observed a new lookout of LinkedIn & few good marketing tools offered by LinkedIn. The new user interface is more gives a feeling like Facebook / twitter, thought not exactly similar but at least gives a look/feel effect of the same. Since last couple of days , it seems that every social media is trying hard to be competitive & roll out new changes which attracts more users & provide extra widget to its users to sustain & improve the client base.

LinkedIn New User Interface

Well, as I say, its gave me look & feel of facebook though it has maintained its own structure. Please have a look at the below image,

As you can see in the image, the new user interface is more clean & simple as compared to last one. Though linkedIn has not yet implemented this user interface in all accounts but, it seems that, slowly it is getting implemented in all the accounts, so it may possible that you might see these changes in next week for your LinkedIn account. Secondly, there is another important facility given by Linked In which really help in branding concept.
