According to various sources (trust us they are real people) the report of the death of any interesting news in the Internet marketing space is real. Apparently there is nothing that is really happening in the industry, just a lot of yammering on about things that effect about 1,000 people in total, on average.
The resulting dearth in real news has led to an increase in stupid post titles that are designed to garner links and add no real value to anyone at any time. What these posts do accomplish though is they clutter up Twitter and provide the opportunity for other people in the industry to blindly retweet anything because “that’s what you are supposed to do”.
While there is some hope that real Internet marketing news may not actually be dead, but just ‘playing possum’, many industry observers are preparing an impromptu Twitter memorial service for this sudden demise of a once dear friend.
Critics claim that there are about 2 – 3 bits of actual news in the search and social media space that find their way out into the wild during any given week but they struggle for air amidst the ridiculous glad-handing and back-slapping that has taken the place of actually getting any work done.
We will keep an eye on any developments here at Marketing Pilgrim but there is great concern that maybe there is nothing left to say.
Goodbye dear friend.
Please be sure to retweet and share this with your ‘friends’!
