Podcast: Splogging or Blog Pirating (Part 2)

Happy Hour with Mr. Business Golf – Splogging or Blog Pirating 2

As a follow up to our podcasts about the internet and the problems with social networks (Part 1, 2, 3, 4) Scot Duke and I recorded a segment about splogs, how they affect bloggers and how to deal with them.

This 14 minute show is the second of series of podcasts  (Part 1) to come out of that conversation.

As you remember, I am visiting with Paul O’Flaherty on Sploggers and the issues that surround what they are causing bloggers. In this second part Paul and I get down to the nuts and bolts of the issue on Splogging, what the problems they are causing and Paul offers some great insight into a few possible solutions bloggers should consider to battle Sploggers. I have a feeling you are going to enjoy this segment, so sit back and listen to what Paul and I have to say about Splogging.

Podcast: Splogging or Blog Pirating (Part 1)

Happy Hour with Mr. Business Golf – Splogging or Blog Pirating 1

As a follow up to our podcasts about the internet and the problems with social networks (Part 1, 2, 3, 4) Scot Duke and I recorded a segment about splogs, how they affect bloggers and how to deal with them.

This 15 minute show is the first of series of podcasts to come out of that conversation.

Now, in this short series of podcasts I came to Paul with a question on how to deal with the growing number of Pirate Bloggers, or Sploggers as they are commonly known. This is becoming a huge issue and is driving many golf bloggers offline since they are tired of dealing with the problem. Let’s hear what Paul has to offer as a solution to Pirate Bloggers or Sploggers.

Happy Hour with Mr. Business Golf – Part 4

About 2 months ago I had the pleasure of a long Skype conversation with Scot Duke of Innovative Business Golf, about Social networks, their problems and their future.

The conversation, which was in preparation for his new book, was very broad and covered a lot of ground over the 2 hours. Scot has taken the time to edit the conversation down to podcastable chunks and this 18 minute podcast is the final installment of 4 podcasts to come out of the conversation.

As you remember the theme of our conversation has been with addressing a number of the problems the internet has that is keeping millions of people from entering cyberspace.

As usual, Paul has a prospective that is different yet more accurate than most view points expressed here in the USA.

In this first segment, I ask Paul a pretty open question on what is being talked about as a solution to the problems with the current internet.

In the second segment we discuss how the Telco’s play a large part of any infrastructure improvements for the Internet.

In the third segment we get into talking about the groups like Skunk Works who we have heard are looking at rebuilding the internet.

Then we wrap it up in the final segment with discussing what everyone should consider doing if they are thinking of joining a online social network group.

In Part Three Paul and I start to identify some of the big problems online social networking groups are having and how the Mega Groups are not wanting to make changes since it would expose the true number of profiles they have for their site.

The conversation, which was in preparation for his new book, was very broad and covered a lot of ground over the 2 hours. Scot has taken the time to edit the conversation down to podcastable chunks and this 20 minute podcast is the second of 4 podcasts to come out of the conversation.

In Part Two we really start drilling down to some of the root causes of the problems with the Internet and how Social Networking Groups are really not helping with the effort to get more real people online.

Paul goes into how the traditional media is not helping with the negative promotions they provide and we discuss the reasons behind why these groups do to want to correct the problem.

We also offer some solutions to the problems and start the talks about where we see the Internet and Social Networking going.
