Google began deleting user accounts from its Google+ social network this week.  Among the accounts that got deleted were those of Google's own executives.  In addition to providing important records about company history, the lost Google+ accounts were a rich trove of information about the people running Google; sometimes silly and whimsical, other times eerily foreboding. Business Insider took screenshots of some of the best posts by Google execs to ensure that they wouldn't be lost to time. ...

Topical SEO: 7 Concepts of Link Relevance & Google Rankings

Posted by Cyrus-ShepardLinks matter for SEO. A lot. Most marketers understand that links to websites count as “votes” on the web.

Elon Musk’s compensation at least 40,000 times more than median Tesla worker

Elon Musk has come under recent scrutiny from the SEC for some ill-advised tweets, from shareholders about closing stores, and even paparazzis for his relationship to indie musician Grimes. Those blows were probably softened by his $2.28 billion compensation last fiscal year from Tesla. That means his compensation is 40,668 times more than the median Tesla worker’s, which is about $56,200, according to Bloomberg. Tesla has about 48,800 employees, the news outlet reported. The majority of Musk’s ...

Tuesday marked the long-promised day when Google began the process of deleting Google+ accounts, ahead of the social network's total shutdown.  And not immune to the purge were the accounts of high-powered Google executives, which are vanishing from public view.

Elizabeth Warren pulled a ninja move to turn tech angst into a crackdown with real teeth, and tech is going to suffer even if she's not president (AMZN, FB, GOOGL)

Elizabeth Warren's call for breaking up Amazon, Facebook, and Alphabet represents a real threat to those companies, even if she doesn't become president. Her proposal threatens to put a spotlight on those companies and their business practices, one that could expose them to reputational harm. Moreover, it represents an attempt to gain support for a rethinking of antitrust policy, one in which regulators scrutinize the effects of concentrated corporate power on things other than just consumer p...
