At SES Chicago I was interviewed along with with Marshall Clark for Webmaster Radio discussing "Social Search and Distributive Reputation Systems" -- which is fancy for evaluation of content or, as Marshall calls it, "Page Rank for People." In this 7-minute clip, we discuss the various social media signals the search engines should be incorporating into their algorithms to improve relevancy. In a nutshell, the idea is that, when determining authority for a particular asset, the person who created the content should be weighted more heavily than the page on which the content resides. We also riff a bit on our Search and Social panel and just how much moderation Marshall needs. Enjoy!
