Vanessa’s Variety for the Week of August 15th, 2008

Posted on August 15, 2008 by Vanessa

This week’s variety is fun because it is full of images, and as studies have shown as the text increases visit time decreases.

  • Google is updating its logo daily in honor of the Olympics.  These are the logos that have graced us so far:

  • Paying attention to social networks can pay off for the retailer and the social butterflies.
  • What if we could create linkbait before it happens?  Visa, in a sense, did it with their latest commercial.
  • What are you trying to offer that your competition isn’t?  Seth Godin helps us take a look at the intangibles.
  • SearchEngineLand.com reported on a new tool called Wordle this week.  What it does is create a customizable tag cloud of the most prominent words in a text or url.  So I took the liberty of seeing what our eCommerce and Entrepreneurship tag cloud would look like:
