Summary transcript for 17 Jan 2013 #AWCchat: Google+ Hangouts

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 42nd #AWCChat on Twitter, about how to use Google Plus Hangouts (free video teleconferencing for up to 10 people from Google) for business and communications.

It was a free-form chat so there were no numbered questions.

We talked about what you need to set up and participate in a Hangout, pros and cons of meeting on video, equipment tips for webcams and audio head sets and resource links about Hangouts.

Summary transcript for 11 Oct 2012 #AWCchat: Better Search Engine Research Results

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 37th  #AWCChat on Twitter, about getting more accurate search engine results from Google and Bing.

Four items were posted for discussion:

1)   How many ways can you find search query results on Google besides the default, “Web?”

2)   What’s a “Boolean search” and when would you use it?

3)   It’s more of a statement than question – Don’t forget the paid search engines like Lycos avail free from your local library.

4)   What’s the Number Two search engine on the planet right now?

Thanks to everyone who participated in our twenty-first #AWCChat on Twitter, on the topic of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) basics for communicators.

Three items were up for discussion:

1)   Keywords. Let’s talk about the words by which you want to be found. Share yours if you’d like.
