NBC Will Push Super Bowl 2015 Commercials Straight To Tumblr

Football-Super-Bowl-TV-commercials-ss-1920


Fans of Super Bowl commercials — we know you’re out there — who want instant replay will be able to turn to Tumblr on Super Bowl Sunday.


NBC Sports Digital today announced the launch of a Tumblr page that will host Super Bowl ads immediately after they air during the broadcast of the game Feb. 1 in Glendale, Ariz.


The page, at http://ift.tt/1sZ8E3v, is currently populated with content created by NBC Sports’ marketing media team and re-blogs of NFL-related Tumblr posts. On game day, the page will turn into a hub for Super Bowl TV ads.


NBC Sports is live streaming Super Bowl XLIX to desktops and tablets, but some of the ads in the live stream will be different than those on the television broadcast. Only the TV broadcast ads will be posted on the Tumblr page, giving online viewers a look at what the larger audience will likely be talking about.


“We recognize that Super Bowl TV ads are must-see content for many viewers, and we’re thrilled to connect our digital audience to the spots in a seamless manner immediately after they air on television,” Rick Cordella, senior vp and general manager of digital media for NBC Sports, said in a release. “Tumblr is a visually-rich, social-friendly platform that is perfect to showcase the Super Bowl TV ads. We are optimistic this experience will be the first step in creating a more robust NBC Sports destination on Tumblr.”


Of course, viewers will have many other options for Super Bowl ad viewing. Most advertisers post full versions of their commercials in advance on YouTube. Facebook is also expected to be in the mix this year.


Marketing Land is tracking the Super Bowl advertising run-up to the big game. We’ll post teasers during the days before the game and post all the official ads on Super Bowl Sunday here.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Another SEO tool drops the word “SEO”

This guest post is by Majestic’s Marketing Director, Dixon Jones, who explains the reasons for their recent name change.
Majestic, the link intelligence database that many SEOs have come to use on a daily basis, has dropped the “SEO” from it’s brand and from its domain name, to become majestic.com. Since most people won’t have used Google’s site migration tool before, here’s what it looks like once you press the “go” button:

In actual fact – there’s a minor bug in the tool. The address change is to the https version of majestic.com (which GWT makes us register as a separate site) but that message incorrectly omits that. Fortunately, elsewhere in GWT its clear the omission is on Google’s side, not a typo from the SEO. It is most likely that the migration tool was developed before the need for Google to have separate verification codes for http and https versions of the site.
The hidden costs of a name change
There were a few “nay sayers” on Twitter upset that Majestic might be deserting it…
