How to Bend the Web to Your Will – Part 2

January 15th, 2012 5 comments

http://kylegraham.tv – In part 1 of this video, I told you that we’ll be building an automated, dedicated research staff that will report to you each day the top news in your industry, or the moment your competitors even breaths or says ANYTHING, or knowing the moment anyone anywhere says anything about you or your company. And I showed you a few sites that already archives this information.
See, back in the day it used to be just Google that led you to quality information on the web, but now-a-days, with the recent explosion of web 2.0 and social media, there are now thousands of websites serving as gateways to quality information.
As great as this sounds, this is exactly why Web 2.0 is killing a lot of people right now! What makes social media so powerful is that any and everyone is now able to contribute information to the internet, dramatically increasing the quantity of information available, thus leading to the perception that it’s “information overload,” and that “we can’t keep up.” Have you heard that or even better, have you felt that?
Well, I want to suggest that this is a mis-diagnosis of the problem. It’s not that it’s information overload, its that there are a limitation of the filters to help you sort through that information.
Now in the last video, I introduced you to a few good “filters” for this information (Google, Google Alerts, Twitter Search, Social Bookmarking sites), and in this video, using the magic of RSS, I’m gonna show you how to put all of this on auto-pilot! I’m gonna show you how you can take all this quality information sources and pipe only the good stuff to a manageable platform, so that whenever you’re ready for it, it’s there waiting for you.
