    Google YouTube URL Shortener Make Way for youtu.be Links
     

    Here’s the post on the

    Make Way for youtu.be Links

    It’s all the rage: link shorteners to ensure that those useful URLs you’re sharing don’t take up too much precious character count while also giving you an inkling of what you’re about to click on. Well, we’ve just launched youtu.be as a shortener for YouTube video links — and nothing but YouTube links — so you can rest assured that when you see a link with this URL, you are indeed about to click on a YouTube video. (Also, because the link contains the ID of the video you’re going to see, developers can do interesting things like show you thumbnails, embed the video directly, or track how a video is spreading in real-time.)

    To see this feature in action, use AutoShare to link up your YouTube account to social networks like Twitter and Google Reader. Then, whenever you favorite a video on YouTube, for example, that action will get syndicated out to your network, who will see this shortened edition of the video’s URL.

    To use youtu.be manually, simply take a URL like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdeioVndUhs and replace the”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=” with “https://youtu.be/” to get: https://youtu.be/FdeioVndUhs Plug that shorter URL into a browser, and you’ll see it redirects to that video.

    Announcing a Cyber Space Visionary – Keynote Speaker RE Connect NYC 2010
     

    What Does the Role of “Googling” Play in
    Your 2010 Marketing Plan?

    Vanessa Fox

    Have you ever wondered why some agent websites show up on page one of Google, while your site is somewhere on page 3?

    Do you have a “search strategy” so new customers and your existing clients can’t find you?

    We are excited to announce that Vanessa Fox, a Cyber Space Visionary will be one of Real Estate Connect NYC’s keynote speakers. Vanessa was recently named one of Seattle’s 2008 top 25 innovators and entrepreneurs.

    Vanessa says, “Search has changed everything. Search has become woven into our everyday lives, and permeates offline as well as online activities. Every business should have a search strategy… A business’s search strategy can have a dramatic impact on how consumers interact with that business.

    Vanessa joined Google in 2005 and became Google’s search engine strategy spokesperson and creator of Google Webmaster Central. Vanessa left Google in June 2007 to work for Zillow.com.

    Currently, you can find Vanessa at Jane and Robot, Nine By Blue, and Ignition Partners. She is a prominent technology blogger and a frequent industry speaker. Look for her book Marketing in the Age of Google in early 2010.

    Vanessa is just one of the speakers you will meet during the Internet Marketing Summit at Real Estate Connect NYC. Follow Vanessa on Twitter @vanessafox and meet her at Real Estate Connect!

    Don’t miss out. Make 2010 the year you take your online marketing to the next level.

    What Is Identity Theft?

    According to the FTC it is:
    When someone uses your personally identifying information, like you name, Social Security number, or credit card number, without
    your permission, to commit fraud or other crimes.

    The FTC estimates that as many as 9 million Americans have their identities stolen each year. In fact, you or someone you know may have
    experienced some form of identity theft. The crime takes many forms. Identity thieves may rent an apartment, obtain a credit card, or
    establish a telephone account in your name. You may not find out about the theft until you review your credit report or a credit card
    statement and notice charges you didn’t make or until you’re contacted by a debt collector. Identity theft is serious. While some identity
    theft victims can resolve their problems quickly, others spend hundreds of dollars and many days repairing damage to their good name
    and credit record. Some consumers victimized by identity theft may lose out on job opportunities, or be denied loans for education,
    housing or cars because of negative information on their credit reports. In rare cases, they may even be arrested for crimes they did not commit.

    For more information please visit: https://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/idtheft/consumers/about-identity-theft.html#content

    How Can I Be Protected?

    “Preventive” identity theft protection services are the best form of identity theft protection. Both place a fraud alert on all of your credit
    files. You have the option of choosing an extreme option of placing a “credit freeze” on your credit files which means anyone opening a
    credit account for you must make an extra effort to confirm your identity, which usually means calling you to confirm you opened the
    account. This type of service is for most people that are concerned about identity theft.

    For those who want to take a less extreme approach or who also want to have the benefit of keeping close tabs on their credit reports
    and scores, one of the “detection” type of services we recommend is a great approach. These are credit monitoring services that monitor
    your credit file (“credit monitoring”), as well as the internet black market, for any unusual activity occurring in your name. They also
    give you regular updates of your credit reports and credit scores. While detection of something means that your information has
    already fallen into the wrong hands, it almost always occurs before the situation has become a more serious problem and it is not as
    difficult to deal with.

    What Can Credit report with free identity protection Do For Me?

    We make it easy for you to purchase the most cost effective service on the market. We have partnered with numerous Identity Theft
    Service providers and we choose the most cost effective one for you.

    With today’s unstable economy people are becoming more desperate and Identity Theft is going to be on the rise. For pennies a
    day you can protect yourself.
