Hello, World

Hi. Welcome to my first official post on a Forrester blog. Haven't quite figured out how to integrate the Jupiter blog. For those who don't know me already, I've been following the intersection of media, technology, and consumer behavior for 12 years or so, and been an analyst for 20. I like pop culture and mass media. I think branded entertainment isn't evil. Some might call me an Old Media apologist, but they'd better be smiling when they say it.

I'll be at the Consumer Forum in Dallas, so I'll see you there.



re: Hello, World

I am looking forward to your posts. I have a question. Do you want to import your posts into this blog? I wondered, because I once heard that Google penalized people for having duplicate content. So I haven't tried it, but I admit, I don't know a lot about those algorithims and such. If this is not true, would love to know your thoughts.

I talked to some of my colleagues with SEO and blog tracking expertise, and they agree it's probably not a good idea, from a Google SEO perspective, to pipe your own content into multiple posting sites. They recommended linking.

Welcome David. Great to have you (and that I can leave a comment and say it too)
