This Week’s Link Roundup #9

Every week millions of interesting links pop up around the Web. Some detail updates and advances in technology, some provide great insight to marketing strategies and tactics, some broaden our knowledge of the world around us, and others are just plain out-there. Since most of the staff at Aristotle share these links with each other, we thought we’d share them with you too. Enjoy.

SOCIAL MEDIA

  • Pinterest lets you verify your site.
    Similar to Twitter and Facebook verification, if you’re a business and use Pinterest, you can now verify your site, giving your Pinterest account a little more authority. It may not be available for you yet, but it’s slowly rolling out to everyone.

MOBILE

  • Apple announces iPad Mini.
    The long-awaited iPad Mini debuted this week to mixed reviews. Is it the perfect iPad for those who don’t want the giant 9.7″ version, or it is a dud compared to the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7?

TECHNOLOGY

  • Google lets you “disavow” links.
    If you use Google’s Webmaster tool, you can see a handful of websites that link to your website. In most cases, these are links you generally approve; however, there are exceptions. If a malicious, spam-ridden site is linking to you and sending false visits, skewing your analytics, you can now tell Google to “disavow” these links.
  • Twenty-one years ago Microsoft introduced a tablet.
    Read Write reminds us that 21-years ago, Microsoft debuted its first tablet with handwriting recognition software, gestures and more. You can even watch a video from 1991 that features Bill Gates explaining the tablet.
  • Google ranks by authors too.
    Author of a blog or online media site? Google wants to rank your posts based on how relevant and popular you, the author, is in addition to all that other good SEO stuff.

OTHER INTERESTING FINDS

  • Amazing Back to the Future costume.
    Check out this Back to the Future costume made for the little Marty McFly. It’s half-costume, half-push car that looks like the iconic DeLorean.
