The web is a complex environment. Complexity originates from specialisation, differentiation and integration.
Adam Smith, in his The Wealth of Nations, maintains that the Industrial Revolution has brought with it a process of specialisation of labour, by progressively differentiating roles within work processes. This course is responsible for positive impacts in the overall levels of efficiencies of work. Smith takes the example of a pin, showing how it requires ten different persons to efficiently produce it.
The same process involves our digital society, whose accelerated evolution behind the growth of technology brings a ‘structural differentiation’. Society, on the web, acts as a human organism, dynamically selecting, creating and evolving to satisfy emerging social needs. This process brings high levels of specialization of the body ‘organs’.

Garry Titterton, CEO of IP wrote this foreword for the book:
Brand Trust and Its Value
Few things help an individual more than to place responsibility upon him, and to let him know that you trust him. ~Booker T. Washington
At the time of writing, the world is suffering from a severe lack of trust. The economic crisis has underpinned just how central trust is in our lives. It is at the very foundation of our existence, of how we operate in our daily lives. As social creatures, we humans, without trust in our relations with others, lack the all important feelings of security and optimism that drive our sense of wellbeing. It can be argued that when people have a sense of wellbeing, it leads to peace and prosperity and without it, suspicion and conflict sow the seeds of disharmony. (more…)
The key to unlocking a powerful strategy is to ask a simple question: what is our competitive advantage?
As Jack Wech once notably stated, “if you don’t have a competitive advantage, don’t compete.” If you know your competitive advantage then you are aware of how the company can compete and make money. Today, companies have the opportunity to generate a vast amount of data but much of it is stored away for later retrieval (that somehow doesn’t happen). When it does, there is a shocking lack of desire to work at revealing insights that will provide them with a strong competitive advantage.
In a recent survey by McKinsey, only 35% of 2,135 global executives believed that their strategies rested on unique and powerful insights. In addition, only 14% of executives surveyed placed novel insights among the top three strategic influencers of financial performance. McKinsey offered that one likely reason was that widespread availability of information and the adoption of similar sophisticated strategy frameworks create the impression that “everyone knows what we know and is probably analyzing the data in the same way that we are.” (more…)
It looks like it’s the end of Microsoft’s domination in worldwide web browser usage with Google Chrome usurping IE. According to StatCounter the most used web browser in the world is now Google Chrome overtaking Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and accruing 31.88% of the share of users compared to IE’s 31.47%.
Google Chrome’s recent rise has been verging on the rampant, gaining major ground on IE over the last 12 months. Google’s advance and IE’s decline has been extremely rapid within this area with Microsoft losing 25% of ground on Google in less than a year. This decline by Microsoft could in some way be linked to a similar decline in PC sales, the device to many that is synonymous with Windows and the IE family of web browsers.
Worldwide web browser share - Google overtakes IE
Google overtakes IE across the world according to StatCounter.
As individuals and organisations we are using more and more data. There is so much data being generated the rewards are huge for the companies that can analyse it all and better predict our buying habits and behaviour. Previously utilising this data would only be available to the biggest companies.
Intelligent Positioning is one of these such companies. We use vast amounts of data everyday to better understand website performance and what it takes to perform well in the search engines for 100,000s of keywords across scores of countries. We are part of this new big data revolution. (more…)

In order to make our searches ‘safer’ Google announced in October 2011 that it would start to encrypt searches for users who were logged in to their Google account through Google.com. This would include their subdomains such as Google Plus. This has since rolled out in the UK as of March 5th and I wanted to document the initial impact of the change for webmasters and brand managers.
