This is a fact. For the most part, the jobs that we do are actually quite mundane. Whether it is picking up the laundry, putting a shirt on, putting groceries in the house, driving a car, or just waiting in line at the grocery store, these are all very mundane jobs.
Well, maybe not the last one. I know there is a lot of focus on “What the hell is Google doing hiring these people?” but in the case of Google, these are the only jobs that we actually have any control over. We do not have to work these jobs, nor do we have to train them. I’m not saying that Google shouldn’t have some kind of hiring system (there is, after all, free software now available for doing just that).
Google is basically giving away the search results to people who use our software. It’s not a job, it’s a search function where Google makes the results available to anyone who can type in the query. This is very much like a car company giving people driving licenses. What’s more, it’s also a job for people who like to eat and drive like crazy.
If you want the search results, you need to train the algorithms. The fact is that Google has always tried to get as many computers to click on their links as they can. I think that this is the key to their success. Google loves to get results for its search queries. Now, they can only do this if you provide them with good links. It’s like when you give your friends a good recipe, they’ll be less likely to go look for it without you.
Good recipe? Yeah, I would have to say that I could probably do that too. There is a huge difference between a recipe and a good link. You have to be able to describe your site and what it offers in a few sentences. Your friends can’t see it so it needs a few sentences to really get their attention. If you don’t have a good description, its not going to be clickable.
Good links are an incredibly important part of building authority online. A good link will rank higher in a search engine if it’s linked to from someone who has authority on the topic, and this is how Google and other search engines see it. You can build a good link from a site like Pinterest, Pinterest will give you links on the sites that are popular. If you are just starting out and having a few hundred posts, that wouldn’t be worth it.
The other good things you can do to build links is: Make sure your links are relevant. Be sure you are linking to the sites that you would like to be featured on, and that you are linking to the sites that are popular, and most importantly, make sure that you are linking to the sites that your target audience is interested in.
Pinterest does a very good job at linking those people that are interested in what your target audience is interested in. They are constantly making great content for people that are interested in a certain lifestyle, product, or idea. While Pinterest is a great place to build links, the site is not the best place to build links in the first place. For a while, it was like the site was completely filled with links and that people were linking to the best of the best.
I do wish Pinterest would do a better job of using the top links as a funnel to get new traffic. I’ve seen some great sites that used a “lazy loading,” where the links were only used once and never re-directed.
I think Pinterest has the potential to be a great place to build links. They have some really cool features that are really useful for people who want to create visual content, but they also have some bugs that prevent this from working well. A good example is their “infinity” image. All of the images they show when you hover over “infinity” are the same image, but each is 100% wider than before. This is a huge oversight.
