LinkedIN Answers and Semantic SEO is the future of search.

2010/08/04

LinkedIN inspired this comment on the future of search and the my Twitter posts here:

Why and How to tweet, blog, link and backlink. See Future of Search is Linked #IN Answers & Semantic SEO maps http://tinyurl.com/INsemanticSEO and http://tinyurl.com/newRulesBlogsLinks

“What types of books do you read?”  is a simple question on LinkedIN Answers that illustrates why LinkedIN and Semantic SEO is the future of search and even better “What types of books do you read?”  had attracted ‘human’ searchers which led to another question–can we use this simple question to attract search engines spiders? 

As I looked at the simple question in the LinkedIN Answer forum I realized that the people who had responded to the question had varying interests and experience, abd tge fact that so many interesting people with diverse interests had been attracted to respond to this simple question intrigued me so much that it inspired me to build the semantic blog post below which is specifically designed to attract a search engine spider’s need to find a semantic algorithm.

Semantic Blogging by Numbers

If you want or need your blog to be seen by search engines and ranked highly then keyword stuffing and building hundreds or thousands of backlinks may have worked before but semantic SEO is the future.  For blog visibility you must now include text and other content that fits the semantic meanding of searchers rather than text searchers enter into search engines. 

Searchers, Semantics and Spiders

As you search the internet today you, like most of the people in the world since early 2009, will probably start in a Social Media platform like WordPress, LinkedIN, Twitter, Youtube or Facebook.  A search engine is probably your second choice and for Google, BING and Yahoo this is a problem and a threat to their business models, so they must improve their service and find a way to give you what you need better, faster and cooler.  Enter the search engine spider and the semantic search.

The search engine giants are quickly improving their search algorithms and providing their spiders the ability to understand the semantic meaning of a blog post or other web site content.  Once the spiders understand the semantic meaning of your blog post then they check their huge databases to find content with similar semantic meaning and associate your blog post with the keywords used by human searchers who have ‘voted’ the content as the Answer to their Question which started as keywords typed into a search windows. 

Search engine spiders now determine the search words used to find your blog post or web site, not your words or tags or backlinks or even what you think your words mean.

Answers, Blogs and Semantic SEO

This is my first answer to “What types of books do you read?”  and the semantic map is below this initial answer.

 
What kind of books do you read?
Lee, this is the second best question I’ve seen in LinkedIN, brilliant!
I don’t read books, I look for stories and taking this perspective has affected how I read and which books read me.

Stories are both converyors of content and markers to help you find what you look for in conversations or books and you won’t go wrong if two of the ways you define stories are containers and maps. One of the reasons I don’t read books is that the stories inside books provide richer persectives if you can find them and combine them to your benefit rather than how, when and where they were offered by the publisher.

Books on the other hand are Guttenberg’s version of the video game and while they do more, two of the ways I look at books are books as addictions and books as self-conditioning tools. Another reason that I don’t read books is that the stories in them transport other stories that benefit the publisher, editor, author or their patron. Reading the stories allows me to learn about conditioning and self-conditioning.

Great question and I thought that I would offer a semantic map of this post and the thread for your viewing pleasure!

In my experience most books read people as people purchase books that have an affinity with their current or future interests or the opportunities and challenges that they may face. The book, whether paper or ebook provides richer perspectives and helps them find questions and refine answers. Just like Google or LinkedIN answers.
