Writing for the web is, of course, different to any other form of writing and demands its own rules, but what defines success online is very much the same as any other writing sphere: you connect, you engage, your content is shared and you become credible.

For executives who are newly exploring social media, one of the greatest barriers to entry is simply digesting the colloquialisms that this form of media has so openly embraced. New users to a social media site are promptly presented with a myriad of unfamiliar phrases or baffled by a series of recognizable words that have been repurposed and redefined.

Everyone knows what PageRank is. However, most people only really have a superficial understanding of it, restricted to knowing that it’s about links and that the more quality links you have pointing to your site, the higher you will rank.

This is great but doesn’t define ‘quality’ as a relative measure, because that’s what it is. In an attempt to summarise the fundamental mathematics of PageRank we’ve produced a short, to-the-point whitepaper that you can access below.
