Sage packs this week's In the News video full of Google, Facebook, MySpace, Microsoft and more. You'll have to watch the video for the full scoop, but here's some highlights. According to Americans not only expect companies to have a social media presence but 60% of Americans already interact with companys on social media websites. Marketing Pilgrim reports that MySpace is still number one with its 67.5% market share to Facebook's 20.56%, even though Facebook showed a 50% growth. Look for great conversation and information about Google AdWords, Microsoft adCenter, dynamic vs. static URLs, audio indexing of videos and other Google innovations.

Hi Sage,
Thanks for Cone's social media report information, I can use that!!

I really like the format you use in the video. I was in a class you taught last year and really enjoyed the "teacher" approach you use.

Thanks Greg!

I really appreciate it. The last couple week's videos have been a little unusual for me because my main computer is in the shop. But I just got word that it's now repaired and ready to come home.

Hi Sage,

Enjoyed watching your video as always. I am going to check MySpace next to find out more about their new advertising program. I was waiting that you will put a word out there for us about Google PR that they updated in September, which was quite a bit earlier than everyone expected. Any thoughts on that one? Thanks.

Hi Irina,

Thanks for writing. And thank you SO much for watching!

It's so hard to pick and choose the stories to put into the video. I try to pick the stories that will help a small business marketer the most.

Updates on PageRank are not too much of a focus for me. I do look at it as a quick view of the strength of a site. But I don't go too crazy on it.

Consequently, I kind of downplay the importance of PR so as to not stir up any PR craziness.

Thanks again for writing (and watching)
