This week’s #FridayFinds showcases 11 website redesigns that are sure to inspire you, a Matt Cutts’ video on linking, common mistakes made on Google+ and highlights of an interview with Dan Roth, executive editor of LinkedIn. I’ve also included a link to a free virtual presentation from PRWeek.com showcasing presentations from Pizza Hut, General Motors and the public relations firm Weber Shandwick.
11 Exceptional Website Redesigns
Thinking about a website redesign or you’re ready to create a new site? You can probably find inspiration from the sites included in Before & After: 11 Exceptional Website Redesigns on WebsiteMagazine.com. I think one of the most dramatic redesigns is the one for International Specialty Supply. Which is your favorite?
Matt Cutts on Linking to your Sources
I’m a fan of Matt Cutts’ videos where he answers questions. This week, he answered the question “If I write about another article, where should I link to the original source?”

What Not to Do on Google+
I know many readers here (myself included) are paying more attention to Google Plus. One of the best posts I’ve read to help you navigate this social network is How Not to use Google+ by Mike Allton (@mike_alton). Rather than tell you what to do, Mike highlights some of the most common mistakes that people are making. Not only does Mike share his insights with you but there’s also a lively discussion going on in the comment section.
Thinking of Using LinkedIn as Part of your Brand?
Check out Anne Pelczar’s post How To Brand Your Business Through LinkedIn (Part 1) to learn more about LinkedIn business pages, influencers and groups. Anne’s article focuses on information she gleaned from Dan Roth’s, (executive editor of LinkedIn), presentation at the PRWeek Strategic Showcase event, Champions of change: Solutions for an evolving industry.
In addition to Dan Roth, there were also presentations by: PR director Doug Terfehr and digital and social marketing head Caroline Masullo (from Pizza Hut), Dave Barthmuss manager (General Motors West Coast Communications group), and Chris Perry, global head of digital (Weber Shandwick). If you’re interested, you can listen to a virtual presentation of the PRWeek event until September 25th, 2013 for free.
