Searching the Globe for Innovations

3 Sep

At one time, the United States dominated innovativeness around the globe. But, that has not been true for many years. And we now know that important innovations can pop up almost anywhere in the world.

This past summer, CNET embarked on a global road trip to uncover innovations worldwide:

“Silicon Valley. Two words that conjure thoughts of the startups and venture capitalists working feverishly to define the next new thing. But that corner of California doesn’t have a lock on the tech that’s rocking our world. This summer, CNET News’ reporters embarked on a global hunt for innovation. Join us to see where they landed, the people they met, the innovations they uncovered — all from the comfort of your armchair. At CNET News, we make adventure easy.”

The Most Expensive Key Words on Google Search

2 Sep

Are you using or considering paid search on Google? Do you know what the 100 most expensive keywords are on Google?

As Chris Zook writes for WebpageFX:

“Google has billions of keywords at their disposal. But not all keywords are created equally, and costs per click can wildly vary from a handful of pennies to hundreds of dollars. So which ones are the most expensive? That’s what motivated us to get in touch with our friends at SEMrush and figure out the most expensive keywords on Google for 2015. Together, we compiled and analyzed countless keywords to find the ones that stuck out above the rest. Some of these prices actually make sense. Others surprised us. And a small fraction left us pretty confused. But to get the full scope of our research, you really have to see the data for yourself.”
