The 6 Key Steps to Improve Your Website’s Loading Speed by @LarryAlton3

Throughout 2014 (and the decade prior), Google hasn’t been shy about telling people what its algorithms are looking for. Initially, algorithms targeted spammy backlinks, keyword stuffing, and domain ownership, but those factors gradually transformed into the Google criteria we know and follow today. Now, many years after the company began to perfect its search algorithms, website loading speed has become one of the biggest determinants of your site’s value and ranking position, making it one of several necessities for optimization and an absolute must for website owners who want to rank well. How is your site doing in the wake of […]

Midterm Elections Pick Up Speed On Social Media

Midterm elections are historically less popular than their presidential counterparts, but they’re gaining speed on social media, reports the Pew Research Center.

Pew’s latest study indicates that more than twice as many registered voters have been active on social media regarding the 2014 midterm elections as compared to 2010 midterms.

For example, about 16% of voters now follow candidates, political parties or elected officials on social media, compared to just 6% four years ago. Granted, 16% is a pretty small slice of the pie, but it’s still a 10% hike.

According to a Pew Research tweet, voters are most likely to follow political figures on social media in order to learn about political news first (41%) and feel more connected to candidates and political parties (35%). However, votes don’t necessarily believe they’re getting the least biased news from political figures—40% find it to be “less reliable” than traditional news.

On Tuesday, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr all highlighted features to encourage social media users to vote. Clicking on Tumblr’s custom election logo prompts users to find their polling place. Facebook put up a midterm elections dashboard last month, and Tuesday provided a widget that easily lets users update their status to show contacts that they’ve voted. Twitter launched an election page last week where users could determine which election discussions are most buzzworthy on Twitter.

U.S. Broadband Speed Ranking: We’re No. 14! We’re No. 14!

Akamai’s “State of the Internet” report for the first quarter of 2014 revealed a sorry fact: Compared to other nations, the United States can’t cut the mustard when it comes to broadband speeds.

In that report, the U.S. didn’t even crack the top 10, instead taking 12th place. This time around, according to Akamai’s latest survey covering Q2, we’ve fallen even further—to number 14. 

America’s Still Barely Online

Akamai’s newest report isn’t all bad news. The U.S. made a slight improvement in average broadband speed to 11.4 Mbps, up from 10.5 Mbps in the first quarter. (First-place finisher Korea clocked in at 24.6 Mbps—more than twice as fast.)

But the U.S. isn’t gaining as quickly as other countries. Consider this: We just got lapped by Romania, Denmark and Norway, the new numbers 10, 11 and 13.

Romania?
