Best Data Visualization

with one comment

(definition) Data Visualizations are a visual way to interpret data.

It’s a great way to captivate your audience’s attention and get your message across quickly.

Below are some of the best data visualizations around. This concept is going to take off as more businesses use the internet and have more accurate data (thanks to Google Analytics!). The challenge will be managing such large amounts of data and really making it meaningful.

It’s official! I have content that shows up on the first page of a Google search. Go ahead and Google “water drop photography”. My photo shows up 4th on the very first page of Google and it makes all the difference in the world.

Google Search: water drop photography

Why, you ask? Because that just increased visibility by about 1000%. You no longer need to do an image search – it shows up under the standard Google search.

The trick is to always add titles and captions to your photos. Always. It can get tedious at times, but that’s how Google reads images. Another important factor is adding Tags to your posts and choosing relevant titles. This all helps to improve your Google status.
