TunerU Begins Development on Automotive Community Site

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008 |

For Immediate Release:

Development begins today on TunerU, a community-driven automotive social network designed to bring together all of the great online resources car lovers use into one comprehensive site. At TunerU each member is an expert in the area of their own vehicle, whether that is a motorcycle, muscle car, euro racer, or even a big rig. Members can share their how-to videos, show off their rides, and connect on the forums. Members are encouraged to make their own videos and use TunerU’s many community features to share their enthusiasm about their own vehicles.

Future plans for TunerU include creating an online television network as well as building strategic partnerships with mechanic schools and automotive workshops. The team at TunerU will also work with preferred vendors to bring their members special pricing on parts, events, advertising, and even new automobiles!

TunerU is being developed by bUmp Interactive in partnership with WebOganic. This is the second partnership of this team, who originally got together to build organic lead generation sites for mechanic schools. Both teams have a background in automotive event promotion, and an avid interest in cars and felt that the world of online resources for car lovers was too scattered and confusing. Their vision is to create a one-stop community where members can learn, meet, and build their own network of like-minded car lovers. They want members to get the latest automotive news, show off their latest car mod, find discount auto parts, and schedule their next car show all in one place!

Online Country Music Community Turns Heads and Raises Awareness

Monday, December 15th, 2008 |

For Immediate Release:

DH Country Music has entered the next stage of its’ own evolution by creating a user-based country music community for both artists and fans. In contrast to many other country music sites, DH allows users to submit and vote for their favorite up and coming artists long before the artist joins a major record label or get featured on a major network or radio conglomerate. And unlike other social networking sites, DH focuses on just country music! No rap, hip-hop, dance or mariachi music to muddle through to get to your home-grown favorites! This means that independent artists can gain greater exposure, reviews and press to help promote themselves, and fans can build a direct connection to those artists!

The DH Country Music Family is, and always will be free to join. Members can upload their own music, videos, pictures, blogs and country music concert tour information. And to celebrate their new community the first 500 members to join will be entered into a raffle for special prizes including new cd’s, apparel, and many other exciting gifts! Once you’ve joined, be sure to invite your friends or visit the badges page to help spread the word! DH encourages all new members to explore the site and use these tools to help bring your favorite artists to light for the rest of the country music community!

DH Country Music began as a simple user forum called Drunken Hillbilly, a leading resource for underground country music. It has since grown into a network of country music sites offering the latest in country music news, country music concerts and country music community services.

Authority Labs Offers Simple SERP Tracking

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008 |

Simple search engine performance tracking has long been a dream for many SEO and web development professionals… but not anymore!

Authority Labs has has teamed with the great guys over at Gangplank to create a comprehensive but simple search engine monitoring and reporting tool that can save us all from our cumbersome spreadsheets, scattered whiteboards, and chaotic charts! While the goal of many SEO’s is to dominate the search engines for their targeted keywords, it’s often difficult to measure success without constantly tracking the slightest changes in search engine performance. This can be time consuming, frustrating, and riddled with human errors. That’s why Authority Lab’s web-based interface now does this for you!

Search Engine Monitoring Tool

Authority Labs allows you to monitor multiple websites (including the competition) for search engine placement results on thousands of possible targeted keyterms so you always know where your site stands. The easy-to-use interface gives you a great site summary that indicates general performance, and then expands on each site for a detailed day-by-day chart of SERP fluxuations for each of the major search engines. You can be aware of any rises and falls in placement within 24 hours as their system queries the search engines for you. This can be a life-saver for any professional SEO because it provides a concrete measurement of the ROI from search engine marketing efforts. They are currently offering basic monitoring service, but have expanded features such as email notifications, advanced keyword grouping, safe client access, and more so you definitely want to keep an eye on this great SEO resource!

Too many people try to be too many things these days. We just want to do one thing really, really, really well … monitor rankings. - Authority Labs

PodCamp AZ - Defining and Educating Relevant Media

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008 |

PodCampAZ Social Media Unconference

At the 2008 PodCamp AZ, traditional media participants get invited to join the relevant media conversation!

What is relevant media? That question is asked by or to nearly every person in mainstream media at some point in their career, and for each person asked, the answer is different. In a world where we are barraged with information from every angle, relevant media is simply which information each person finds useful and applies to their everyday life. For a disc jockey of a local radio station, relevant media may be the Billboard magazine they subscribe to or the commentary on a fan club website. For a construction worker in that same town, the DJ himself may be a source of relevant media providing traffic, weather and music to work to on his drive to the construction site each morning while he passes billboards that influence his buying decisions. On the other side of town someone may be at home watching a talk show or reading a paper filled with opinions, recommendations, advertisements and items that person is interested in. These are all examples of relevant media. So the question really should be “What media source is relevant to you?”.

Without a doubt, the internet has provided more sources than ever to pull information from. The internet has raised many questions about whether traditional media sources are indeed still relevant to the public, and how they work in tandem with the mass amount of resources that are available online. At the 2008 PodCamp AZ organizers are excited to provide an open learning environment that can help answer these questions. Speakers from all corners of the web will be sharing a conversation with attendees that cover everything from online television, radio, media buying, marketing, print media, education and more!

For more information I encourage you to register today to attend PodCamp AZ 2008 with me November 1st and 2nd.
