What users search for can tell search engines about the strength of a brand, because the strength of a brand directly influences those searches. So here’s my prediction: next year, the confluence of user signals influencing search engines’ perception of brand strength, and everyone being on the “social media helps us build links” band wagon, will make 2012 The Year of Social Link Building.

As advertisers will we really need to invest elsewhere when Google could potentially provide it all?

It seems when looking generally at the social media landscape there are a lot of things developing, but nothing that jumps out as the next big thing. Some clever things like relocation and augmented reality are still struggling to gain the full respect of the tech community let alone the general public. This has led me to much head scratching, deep thoughts of the Jack Handey persuasion, and hours trolling blogs for some much needed persuasion/inspiration.
