mulberry handbags outlet the future

The Trends for 2012 Of specific note, are the death of the clickthrough ad, the merging of desktop and mobile, and SuperCookies. This makes sense, as critics of clickthrough suggest that it's an inaccurate way to measure the ad's strength. Compounding this issue is the issue of targeting, which, according to Nielsen, is inaccurate. However, not everyone feels this way. One reader suggests that " Search advertising accounts for over half of the $30 billion or so spent in online advertising and is ALL about clickthroughs." Naturally, we at Seed Corn are a diverse firm, but search is a large part of our focus, so this is inspiring news. The challenge will remain, as Nielsen suggests, getting the targeting correctly. Most likely, Facebook is a testground for targeting and clickthrough rates, so as targeting improves, so should the rate of clickthrough. Currently, studies are showing a less than 1% rate, and that doesn't look well for mulberry handbags outlet the future. As we say a lot here, only time will tell.

The merging of desktop and mobile is something that we have seen coming for a while. Rumor has it that Apple is trying to merge iOS and OSX completely. From a Mac standpoint, I can see how that would make sense, especially with the emergence of tablet computing. However, when looking at a mobile smartphone and a PC for example, the hardware differences are simply too vast to allow a complete and total merging of desktop and mobile. Obviously, Microsoft has learned how not to go about this, as they have completely redesigned their mobile interface. Before, it was simply a scaled down version of their popular Windows software, and it was laggier than a fly stuck in molasses. We are going to see more and more similar features, but I'm not sure that we'll see a transparent, seamless merging of the two at least not in 2012.

Supercookies are an item that really interested me. According to the Wall Street Journal, websites like MSN and Hulu have been adopting new techniques to track users online usage.

"The new techniques, which are legal, reach beyond the traditional "cookie," a small file that websites routinely install on users' computers to help track their activities online. Hulu and MSN were installing files known as "supercookies," which are capable of recreating users' profiles after people deleted regular cookies, according to researchers at Stanford University and University of California at Berkeley."

The data collected by companies that use supercookies could be invaluable in advertising and marketing efforts, but is it ethical? I certainly don't want to have my online usage tracked by companies. What if that information got stolen? The brand distrust from the company mining my online usage would be catastrophic. (I wouldn't but still.)

All in all, it's going to be an interesting year for online advertising and marketing. The digital space is a constantly evolving animal and sometimes early adopters are necessarily in the best light. Remember the first iPhone? Trends are useful in predicting the near future, but as we've learned, sometimes time has a way of telling a different story. You would have thought our friends over at Apple were done for at one point, and now they're one of the most profitable companies of alltime. Email at one point was an advertisers dream, CPM email marketing was the cat's pajamas. Not anymore. We'll revisit this in 2013, as all the smoke has settled. Until then

have been trying

running while pregnanthave you been running while pregnant? i have been trying . but even though i was a big runner before, i haven't been able to get into the running groove consistently. I ran a 5K in late December and that was the last time I ran that distance. My doc said I am fine as long as there is no pressure or discomfort. I am at the point where I can only get through 2 miles before I start to feel tight. Some days are harder than others, it also seems to depend on the time of day. if it is later in the day and I have been on my feet at work it's harder. I say do what you can at whatever pace you can. I didn't run at all when I was pregnant with my 11 month old, and by the time I was 8 months along, I was soooooo jealous of all the runners I would see at the park. Anyway, I've kept with it with this pregnancy and it's been great. I wear one of those Medela belts to hold the belly in and usually take 2 or 3 walk breaks in a 3 mile run. I'm going WAY slower than normal, but I'm just happy to be there!mommy to James Patrick 2.6.08 and Avery Katherine EDD 5.30.09I was running up until my belly got so big it made it uncomfortable and I started feeling lots of pressure. That was around 22 weeks.I still do the elliptical and that is amazing. I could work out on that for hours because there is no pressure and it doesn't hurt my joints at all.I have a friend who has run through her previous two pregnancies up to about 3637 weeks with both! She doesn't have much of a belly while pregnant, though. So, my belly at 22 weeks was hers at 37 weeks yikes, I know!I was training for a marathon when I found out, and thought I could keep it up, but it actually made me sick, blackout and have spottingI think I was trying to train too hard. I tried to pick it back up when I was about 18 weeks or so, but could never get back into the groove. Not to mention as soon as I would start, I had to pee really bad. So, I resigned myself to walking, pilates and eliptical or bike when I'm at the gym. I do know people that ran almost the whole way through, they just had to majorly slow down. I think that might be the hardest part. I must admit I'm a little jealous you've been able to keep it up and congrats!
