My Blog about Marketing and Web 2.0



In this blog I will try to gather all I discover about new web technologies, the social web and the influence on marketing.

Blogo ergo sum - I blog so I exist

2012-10-29T05:34:45-07:00

I started a new blog: Arne Bleijs - Connective Marketing.

This one, I started back in 2006-2007. It was too much technology oriented. It also didn´t last for long. Since then I´ve learned that the rapid technological changes of this moment can only exist as a result of changing needs of people and society. It is the job of Marketing to provide insight into the changing needs and to define answers thereby creating added value.

So today I started a new blog. Why? To share my ideas with the world. To use as input in social networks. In order to find like-minded, or people I can help with my knowledge and experience. You could see it as ‘personal branding’ or ‘personal content marketing’. You can also see it as ‘knowledge in the cloud’. Knowledge multiplied by sharing it. Collecting what others already thought about. Linking what others might not have seen.

Collecting information is not enough. Information is not knowledge unless you can apply it, can help people with it.

As an experienced Marketing Professional in the B2B market I’d like to help companies become successful by focusing on the right customers and by designing their commercial processes to focus on the fulfilment of the needs of those customers.

I do so by working towards a structure of lasting, committed relationships between organisations and customers in a way that adds value for both parties and also for all other stakeholders. That I call Connective Marketing.

My new blog isn't finished yet. We’re still working on a suitable design. But I did not want to wait until everything is perfect. Let’s start!

MyBlogLog

2008-09-29T01:32:01-07:00

Just found out about MyBlogLog. Found it on the site of Clicky. Somehow they can show a list of who else is visiting my blog. Mmmm. Let' s check it out. I'll let you know if I think it's fit for my blog.



Clicky

2007-02-14T11:37:15-08:00

Just found a new Web Statistics tool: Clicky. Clicky not just gathers usage statistics, but also collects information about which individuals visit your blog, or at least their IP-addresses. I've added their Javascript Tracking code to the Stats-box to the right, and it works just fine.



BlogPulse (2)

It costed some time, but it seems that step-by-step BlogPulse is recognizing my blogs. Just click the title of this posting.



What is this GeoURL about?

2007-09-09T10:14:00-07:00

To the left of this page, in the Varia box, one finds one more little icon or label:What is this about?GeoURL is a location service, which locates your website in Meatspace and associates sites near your site to it. Look eg at sites near my blog: http://geourl.org/near?p=http://ableijs.blogspot.com/.How does it do that? Well just by looking at your metadata.There are several ways to this. GeoURL uses 2 of them:1. ICBM (Why ICBM? Old Usenet historical precedent.)Add the following metatags to the -section of your XHTML-page:where XXX.XXXXX is the latitude (south is negative), YYY.YYYYY is the longitude (west of Greenwhich, UK is negative).Also notice the use of Dublin Core to denote the title of the blog. See: Expressing Qualified Dublin Core in HTML/XHTML meta and link elements. This should be preceded by using the profile attribute in the -tag:denoting the use of Dublin Core Metadata, and by the line:denoting the meaning of the prefix 'DC'.2. Using GeoTags.Add the following metatags to the -section of your XHTML-page:where again XXX.XXXXX is the latitude (south is negative), YYY.YYYYY is the longitude (west of Greenwhich, UK is negative).The ISO 3166 Country code for the Netherlands = "NL", while the ISO 3166-2 Country Subdivision code for the Utrecht province is NL-UT.Some other services, notably Syndic8, use geo.country instead:Once again you need to tell what this 'geo.'-thing means.This should be done by by using the profile attribute in the -tag:denoting the use of Dublin Core Metadata and alike profiles, and by the lines:denoting the meaning of the prefixes 'DC' and 'geo'.3. Syndic8 uses yet another method, not supported by GeoURL: The Getty Thesaurus of Names (TGN).Also here you should tell what this 'tgn.'-thing means.This should be done by by using the profile attribute in the -tag:denoting the use of Dublin Core Metadata and alike profiles, and by the lines:4. Making full use of Dublin Core: Expressing Qualified Dublin Core in HTML/XHTML meta and link elements.Start with the profile attribute of the -element:denoting the use of Dublin Core Metadata and alike profiles, and with the lines:denoting the meaning of the prefixes 'DC' and 'DCTERMS'.Then add the Dublin Core Metadata:



What about those RDF, RSS and Atom icons?

2007-02-05T12:26:32-08:00

To the left of this page, in the Varia box, one finds three little icons or labels:

What are these for?

In fact they are links to a XML version of this blog. With this version it is possible that not only other persons, but also other programs can read this blog. Just like the links to the first 5 hid lines of my Live Space you find to the right. There are standards how to do that, not one, but a number.

My favourite is RDF/RSS 1.0. This one is based on the Resource Description Framework, which is a W3C Recommendation (http://www.w3.org/RDF/). This RDF is part of the W3C Semantic Web Activity, which tries to turn the world wide web into a web of data, which has meaning not only to humans, but also to machines. RDF is a generic framework, within which vocabularies can be for different goals. RSS 1.0 is such a vocabulary for Site Summaries (RDF Site Summary). del.icio.us uses RDF, and so does the Open Directory Project.

RSS 2.0 is not a successor, but a derivation or a fork, which is popular mainly (but not only) at Microsoft. RSS 2.0 does not obey the rules of the semantic web. More information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS_(file_format).

Atom is an attempt to leave al this confusion behind. It is an Internet Proposed Standard (RFC 4287), but unfortunately no longer part of the semantic web efforts. Atom is the favourite of Google, which bases its GData-protocol on it.

Blogger 3.0 getting out of beta too soon

2006-12-17T13:25:36-08:00

On december 11nth the Blogger team announced that they expect the new Blogger to be out of beta soon. I quote "Known issues on the new Blogger are few and getting fewer". Unfortunately I don't agree with them. If I take a look at the Blogger Help group (http://groups.google.com/group/blogger-help) I notice that there are a lot of people having problems with templates. I also had them, or at least my wife, who designed the wonderful layout for my blog. It was very hard to force the new very advanced and powerful template engine of Blogger to do what you really want, especially when you want your layout to be useful in both IE and Firefox (what about standards, huh?). Big problem was the fact that we couldn't validate the CSS through the W3C CSS validator (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http://ableijs.blogspot.com), because it complains that the document is not valid XML. Note that the same holds for the Blogger blog (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http://buzz.blogspot.com/), and the Known Issues for Blogger in Beta (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http://knownissues.blogspot.com/). When I try to validate my blog through the W3C Markup validator (http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://ableijs.blogspot.com) I find a discouraging number of 874 errors. When I analyze them, I find the following structural errors, which come from the Blogger template engine: Use of invalid xml namespaces (using a DOCTYPE statement restricts the use of namespaces) The template engine should remove them during the transform to XHTML. I can't remove them in the template because Beta Blogger stubbornly keeps adding them.Unencoded & in uris, should be &Encloses blogposts in blocklevel elements without checking if the blogposts themselves contain blocklevel elements (like
