What does the world want? According to John Battelle, a company that answers that question can unlock the most intractable riddles of both business and culture. And for the past few years, that´s exactly what Google has been doing. Jumping into the game long after Yahoo, Alta Vista, Excite, Lycos, and other pioneers, Google offered a radical new approach to search, redefined the idea of viral marketing, survived the dotcom crash, and pulled off the largest and most talked about initial public offering in the history of Silicon Valley. But The Search offers much more than the inside story of Google´s triumph. It´s also a big-picture book about the past, present, and future of search technology, and the enormous impact it is starting to have on marketing, media, pop culture, dating, job hunting, international law, civil liberties, and just about every other sphere of human interest. More than any of its rivals, Google has become the gateway to instant knowledge. Hundreds of millions of people use it to satisfy their wants, needs, fears, and obsessions, creating an enormous artifact that Battelle calls ´´the Database of Intentions´´. Combined with the databases of thousands of other search-driven businesses, large and small, it all adds up to a goldmine of information that powerful organizations (including the government) will want to get their hands on. No one is better qualified to explain this entire phenomenon than Battelle, who co-founded Wired and founded The Industry Standard. Perhaps more than any other journalist, he has devoted his career to finding the holy grail of technology. And he has finally found it in search. For anyone who wants to understand how Google really succeeded, The Search is an eye-opening and indispensable read. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Battelle.

A bold and vital book that asks and answers the most urgent question of today: What Would Google Do? In a book that´s one part prophecy, one part thought experiment, one part manifesto, and one part survival manual, Internet impresario and blogging pioneer Jeff Jarvis reverse-engineers Google, the fastest-growing company in history, to discover 40 clear and straightforward rules to manage and live by. At the same time, he illuminates the new worldview of the internet generation: how it challenges and destroys, but also opens up vast new opportunities. His findings are counterintuitive, imaginative, practical, and above all, visionary, giving readers a glimpse of how everyone and everything, from corporations to governments, nations to individuals, must evolve in the Google era. Along the way, he looks under the hood of a car designed by its drivers, ponders a worldwide university where the students design their curriculum, envisions an airline fueled by a social network, imagines the open-source restaurant, and examines a series of industries and institutions that will soon benefit from this book´s central question. The result is an astonishing, mind-opening book that, in the end, is not about Google. It´s about you. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Jarvis.

The organic guide to Google SEO Learn the proven organic search engine optimization methods and techniques The SEO industry and the rules for ranking on Google have completely changed in the past couple of years. It´s changed due to a new set of rules that have emerged in the wake of Google´s World Wide Web war that it waged in the silent digital abyss of cyberspace. This war that Google waged was against spammers and other websites that were bending and breaking the SEO rules to bully their ways to the top of search engine results pages (SERPs). In waging this war, Google dropped some atomic bombs in the form of changes to its algorithms (search formulas) that have completely transformed many of the strategies and techniques for ranking a website today. Gone are the easy days of instituting link schemes, keyword stuffing, and content cloaking, just to name a few of the ill-used techniques that led to this war. Today, the name of the game is relevancy. If Google doesn´t think you´re relevant, then not matter what techniques you use for search engine optimization from whatever SEO book you find them in, they won´t work. Why should you care about all this? Now that the digital dust has settled, it´s important for you to understand the new set of rules for ranking websites that now dominate the Web. Without the very important information contained in this SEO book, ranking today for any competitive keywords will be incredibly difficult. If you are going to make lasting changes on Google´s SERPs, then you have to have the knowledge and know-how of what works today and what doesn´t. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Smokey Rivers.
