This is what happens when we get into August: The world gets much, much quieter. So, with little fanfare (and perhaps less of a theme tying them together), here are the links I found particularly interesting this week:
- Mashable looks at how to capitalize on web-generated sales leads.
- Forbes lists the top 25 websites for CEOs.
- Social Media Examiner offers up 22 top blogging tools loved by the pros. (I’d add my top blogging tools, 5 top tools for curating content and 5 WordPress plug-ins I can’t live without to that list, too).
- Pew releases new findings on consumers’ mobile phone frustrations.
- And TechCrunch reports on Google’s update to its PageSpeed Service, because, as we all know, speed matters.
And, just for fun, you’ve got to check out this very funny (if a little “inside baseball”) graphic Frank Fuchs of LocallyType.com posted today:
