The evolution of executive search in recent years has seen tremendous shifts in the recruitment landscape. The acquisition of executives has become highly strategic. Disruptions within the digital economy, brought on by AI and automation technologies, have impacted all aspects of search.

From recruiting top talent to employing more sophisticated assessment techniques, executive search requires much more agility. To best serve their executive clients, many top recruitment agencies are turning to data analytics to develop and expand their service offerings.

When data analytics are complemented by a suite of technology-based tools, recruitment, talent selection, assessments, executive coaching and succession planning are enhanced at the executive level.

Leading recruitment agencies can attest how leveraging data analytics is crucial to attracting top-level talent in a fast-paced, ever-shifting business climate. Here are the five unparalleled benefits of leveraging data analytics in executive search.

1. Better decision-making

Data analytics is playing a critical, strategic role in improving decision-making. Today’s complex business environment makes analytics an important competitive resource for finding and attracting highly qualified talent.

Inefficiencies and costs are two areas in recruitment where data analytics drives ROI.

When recruitment agencies employ analytics capabilities to inform recruitment decisions, efficiencies are improved and costs are cut. This affords recruiting companies to boost or optimize their ability to inform recruitment decisions, providing a highly competitive advantage.

2. Increased quality of hire

Analytics drives the ability to mine actionable insights.

Adopting an analytical approach towards executive search helps headhunting firms increase the quality of executive hires. Employing structured data analytics functions helps focus data on the most important metrics relevant to recruiting and retaining qualified executives.

Data analytics allows recruitment agencies to dig deep into metrics to highlight the following factors:

  • Top talent characteristics
  • New hire performance
  • Qualified applicants per requisition
  • Resignations or involuntary turnovers within three months of service.

Utilizing analytics to the executive search experience allows companies to recruit the right talent for mission-critical roles.

3. Improved candidate experience

A critical step in the success of talent acquisition is the candidate experience. Research done by IBM Analytics shows that a great candidate experience is a “fundamental requirement” for hiring sought-after executives. The candidate experience has a far-reaching impact, determining important outcome measures like greater advocacy, job acceptance, employment branding and potential sales.

Data analytics can be leveraged to improve the candidate experience. Incorporating analytics across every stage of the recruitment process informs recruiters with relevant information to enhance the candidate experience.

Analytics allows talent acquisition teams to better track a candidate’s progress across the recruitment pipeline.

Understanding the difficult steps that hinder the hiring process allows recruiting teams to take the correct steps to address potential hindrances, vastly improving the recruiting process and, more importantly, the candidate experience.

4. Improved speed of hire

With highly qualified executives in short supply across multiple sectors, businesses must optimize the speed and agility of the recruitment process. The use of analytics technologies addresses these talent shortages to sustain a competitive edge.

A data-driven approach to recruitment helps reveal bottlenecks in the hiring process. It also provides more accurate time estimates of each hiring stage. This enables talent acquisition teams to know with confidence how long the recruitment process will take to fill mission-critical roles.

Data analytics allows talent teams to work with agility, increasing speed and predictability to better manage the hiring process in a faster, more impactful way.

5. Creation of a diverse recruitment culture

A diversity- and inclusion-first culture unlocks numerous business benefits such as improving innovation and outperforming competition.

Implementing data analytics to the hiring process enables companies to set and achieve diversity targets. Unlike traditional recruitment methods, analytics eliminates the guesswork of determining demographic metrics. Acquisition teams can better monitor important demographic metrics like ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation and education to increase diversity.

Analytics can further enhance diversity metrics to map acquired knowledge such as military experience, cultural fluency, and language skills to drive innovation and business success. Strengthening the leadership team with diversity and inclusion can be a strategic approach to succeeding in an evolving marketplace.

Employing a data-driven approach to recruitment

The application of analytics is key to remaining competitive in today’s fast-paced, evolving business climate. Taking a data-driven approach to the executive search enables your company to be successful in its recruitment process.

Today’s marketplace requires the power of analytics to recruit sought-after executives to meet every talent need and to achieve real business results.

The kids of today are comfortable in the digital space. They use digital diaries and textbooks at school, communicate via instant messaging, and play games on mobile devices.

However, as much as the Internet is an incredible resource, access to it can be dangerous for children, and parents who want their child to spend time online safely and productively, need to understand the basic concepts of digital security and the associated threats and be able to explain them to their children.

With this in mind, Kaspersky Lab compiles an annual report, based on statistics received from its solutions and modules with child protection features, which examines the online activities of children around the world.

Video content

According to the report, globally, video content made up 17% of Internet searches. Although many videos watched as a result of these searches may be harmless, it is still possible for children to accidentally end up watching videos that contain harmful or inappropriate content.

The report presents search results on the ten most-popular languages for the last six months. The data shows that the 'video and audio' category, which covers requests related to any video content, streaming services, video bloggers, series, and movies, are the most regularly 'Googled', and make up 17% of the total requests.

Second and third places go to translation (14%) and communication (10%) Web sites respectively. Gaming Websites sit in fourth place, generating only 9% of the total search requests.

Harnessing smart wearables to spy on owners

Kaspersky Lab has also noted a clear language difference for search requests. "For example, video and music Web sites are typically searched for in English, which can be explained by the fact that the majority of movies, TV series and musical groups have English names. Spanish-speaking kids carry out more requests for translation sites, while communication services are mostly searched for in Russian."

Chinese-speaking children look for education services, while French kids are more interested in sport and games Web sites. German children dominate in the "shopping" category, Japanese kids search for Anime, and the highest number of search requests for pornography are in Arabic.

Anna Larkina, the Web-content analysis expert at Kaspersky Lab, says children around the world have varying interests and online behaviors, but what links them all is their need to be protected online from potentially harmful content.

"Children looking for animated content could accidentally open a porn video. Or they could start searching for innocent videos and unintentionally end up on Web sites containing violent content, both of which could have a long-term impact on their impressionable and vulnerable minds," she says.

A local view

In addition to analyzing searches, the report also delves into the types of Web sites children visit, or attempt to visit, which contain potentially harmful content that falls under one of the 14 pre-set categories, which cover Internet communication sites, adult content, narcotics, computer games, gambling and many others.

The data revealed that in South Africa, communication sites (such as social media, messengers, or e-mails) were the most popular (69%) of pages visited.

However, the percentage for this category is dropping each year, as mobile devices play an increasingly bigger role in children's online activities.

The second most popular category of Web sites visited in SA is 'software, audio, and video', accounting for 17%. Websites with this content have become significantly more popular since last year when it was only the fifth most popular category globally at 6%.

Others in the top four are electronic commerce (4.2%) and alcohol, tobacco, and Web sites about narcotics (3.9%), which is a new addition compared to this time last year.

Education

Irrespective of what children are doing online, it is important for parents not to leave their children's digital activities unattended, says Larkina.

"While it is important to trust your children and educate them about how to behave safely online, even your good advice cannot protect them from something unexpectedly showing up on the screen. That's why advanced security solutions are key to ensuring children have positive online experiences, rather than harmful ones," she concludes.

The new Google College search feature aggregates data on colleges like admission rates, student demographics, majors available at the college, notable alumni and more, and displays them as a search result.

After rolling out job search feature on Search, Google now aims to make it easier for students to find the college of their choice. The company is rolling out a new feature to Search, which will enable users to simply search for a college and get information like admissions, cost, student life and more, directly as a search result. To provide an idea of how much a college will cost, Search will also display information about the average cost after applying student aid, including breakdowns by household income. 

The feature is currently available only in the US and Google says that it displays the results based on data sourced from public information from the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard and Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), which is a comprehensive data set available for 4-year colleges. We have reached out to Google for comments on whether or not this feature be made available for Indian users looking to study in the US or for those looking at colleges within India. The story will be updated once we receive a response. 

Google has also worked with education researchers and non-profit organizations, high school counselors, and admissions professionals to “build an experience to meet your college search needs.” When one searches for a college or a university, alongside the above-mentioned cost breakdown, there are also some other tabs that provide additional information about enrollment rates, majors available at the college, student demographics, notable alumni and more. There is also an ‘Outcome’ tab where one will find the percentage of students graduating from colleges or universities, along with the typical annual income of a graduate. In case you are interested in exploring other options, there is also ‘Similar Colleges’ tab.

Google states in its blog, “Information is scattered across the internet, and it’s not always clear what factors to consider and which pieces of information will be most useful for your decision. In fact, 63 percent of recently-enrolled and prospective students say they have often felt lost when researching college or financial aid options.” The new feature is now rolling out on mobile and some of the features will also be available on desktops.

San Francisco, Google took action on nearly 90,000 user reports of spam in its Search in 2017 and has now asked more users to come forward and help the tech giant spot and squash spam.

According to Juan Felipe Rincon, Global Search Outreach Lead at Google, the automated Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based systems are constantly working to detect and block spam.

"Still, we always welcome hearing from you when something seems phishy. Reporting spam, malware, and other issues you find help us protect the site owner and other searchers from this abuse," Rincon said in a blog post.

"You can file a spam report, a phishing report or a malware report. You can also alert us to any issue with Google search by clicking on the 'Send feedback' link at the bottom of the search results page," he added.



Last year, Google sent over 45 million notifications to registered website owners, alerting them to possible problems with their websites which could affect their appearance in a search.

"Just as Gmail fights email spam and keeps it out of your inbox, our search spam fighting systems work to keep your search results clean," Rincon said.

In 2017, Google conducted over 250 webmaster meetups and office hours around the world reaching more than 220,000 website owners.

"Last year, we sent 6 million manual action messages to webmasters about practices we identified that were against our guidelines, along with information on how to resolve the issue," the Google executive said.

With AI-based systems, Google was able to detect and remove more than 80 percent of compromised sites from search results last year.

"We're also working closely with many providers of popular content management systems like WordPress and Joomla to help them fight spammers that abuse forums and comment sections," the blog post said.

Google has updated its guidelines for publishing job openings that have been marked up with job posting structured data. Failure to adhere to these guidelines could result in a manual action.

Here is an overview of the new guidelines site owners will need to comply with when using job posting structured data.

  • Site owners will be required to remove a job posting when it is no longer available. This could involve either removing the entire posting, adding a noindex tag, or removing the job posting structured data.
  • Job posting structured data must only be used on individual job postings. It cannot be used on pages that display lists of all available job openings.
  • All information included in the job posting structured data must also be visible to users on the job description page.

Google emphasizes that these guidelines are being put in place to ensure an optimal job seeking experience for Google Search users.

When you think of the Deep Web, what comes to mind? Illegal activity? Phishing and scams? Bitcoins?

Well, you’d be kind of right…and kind of wrong. These are examples of things found in the Dark Web, a collection of websites that have hidden IP addresses and may require a specific software to access. The Dark Web is only a small fraction (0.01%) of the Deep Web, which contains Internet content that is not searchable by your standard search engines. In other words, if Google can’t find what you’re looking for, it’s probably still out there in the World Wide Web; it’s just in the harder-to-access Deep Web. (If Google can find it, then it’s on the Surface Web, which makes up about 0.03% of the Internet.)

The Deep Web and the Dark Web have been conflated in public discourse. Most people don’t know that the Deep Web contains mostly benign sites, such as your password-protected email account, certain parts of paid subscription services like Netflix, and sites that can be accessed only through an online form. (Just imagine if someone could access your Gmail inbox by simply googling your name!) Also, the Deep Web is huge: back in 2001, it was estimated to be 400–550 times larger than the Surface Web, and it’s been growing exponentially since then.

By comparison, the Dark Web is pretty small: Dark Web sites number only in the thousands. The websites in the Dark Web are characterized by their use of encryption software that makes their users and their locations anonymous. That’s why an illegal activity is so common on the Dark Web: users can withhold their identity; the owners of illegal websites can hide their location; and data can be transferred anonymously. This means that the Dark Web is full of illegal drug and firearm transactions, pornography, and gambling. A notorious online black market called Silk Road was shut down by the FBI in 2013.

But the Dark Web’s not completely dark. It’s also used by political whistle-blowers, activists, and journalists who may be censored or could risk political retaliation if discovered by their government. Most notably, the website WikiLeaks has its home on the Dark Web.

Keywords are used in online marketing to set up pay-per-click (PPC) ads, create meta descriptions and improve search engine optimization (SEO). Determining the most popular keywords can increase the effectiveness of your online marketing. Discover how to find the most searched keywords by using several free Internet-based sites and programs.

Method-1 Google Auto-Complete

Image titled Find The Most Searched Keywords Step 1

Image titled Find The Most Searched Keywords Step 2
2-Go to Google.com. Type the subject into the search bar.
Image titled Find The Most Searched Keywords Step 3
3-Look for the drop down section underneath the search bar that shows search terms that are popular. Depending upon the subject, there can be a few or more than 10 keywords.
  • Look for "head" keywords. These are the terms that are the most popular. They are fairly general, and they are the most expensive terms to bid on for PPC ads.
  • Also look for long-tail keywords. These are the longer groups of 3 to 5 terms and phrases. They are the terms people use to search for a very specific item. They are less expensive in PPC ads, result in fewer searches, but generally, result in the best-targeted marketing.

4-Write down all the terms on the Google auto-complete that seem like they apply to your site or products.

5-Delete the original search term from the Google search bar and try again with a new subject.

6-Use these search terms, if you have online content that applies to them. By staying on top of trending search engine topics, you can give your website new relevance.
  • Keep in mind that it will be difficult to use these trending keywords with PPC advertising. The best way to use them is to provide quality content that refers to trending topics. Use these keywords in your title, sub-title, URL, image names and articles to produce backlinks that Google gathers and uses to rank your website.

Image titled Find The Most Searched Keywords Step 12

7-Return to the Google.com/trends website. This time, click on "Explore Trends."

Method 3-WordStream Suggestion Tool

Image titled Find The Most Searched Keywords Step 18
3-Enter a keyword phrase that you want to check for popularity. Click "Enter."
Image titled Find The Most Searched Keywords Step 19
4-Peruse the list of keywords that are similar to the 1 you just entered. This tool can help you find popular long-tail keywords and help you target your marketing more successfully.
Image titled Find The Most Searched Keywords Step 20
5-Do up to 30 keyword searches for free. Write down the new long-tail keywords to use with PPC ads and SEO.
  • This WordStream tool is especially valuable for PPC ads, because it allows you to bid on terms that will actually be used by people to find and buy products. Once you are able to determine popular, specific keyword phrases, you can improve the value of your PPC marketing.

Method 4-Website Analytics

Image titled Find The Most Searched Keywords Step 21

1-Talk to your web programmer to find out what analytics program your business website is using.
  • If you are using WordPress, there is an automated Analytics tool through the "Jetpack" program. Find out how to access it through your dashboard.
  • If you do not have a website analytics program to analyze your web traffic, start it now. You can sign up for a free account with Google Analytics, postcode onto your website and start tracking traffic within 24 hours.

Image titled Find The Most Searched Keywords Step 22

2-Find the section of your analytics program that discusses search terms. Most programs will list the most popular terms that were used to reach your website.
Image titled Find The Most Searched Keywords Step 23
3-Make a list of these popular keywords, so that you can continue to include them in your SEO and PPC marketing. As you improve your SEO through the use of popular keywords, you can also see how these terms change or searches decrease or increase in popularity.
  • Your research into popular terms may change the search term listed in this area week by week. As you use hot topic keywords, launch marketing campaigns and use long-tail keywords in your PPC ads, your popular search terms are likely to change.
  • If the search terms listed in this area are extremely general, you can deduce that you have more competition for clicks with that search term. Targeting other keywords or producing higher quality content can improve your search engine ranking.

Billions of searches are conducted each day on popular search engines and social networking websites by people all around the world. But what exactly do these people search for? A number of major search engines provide a way to glimpse into the web’s query stream to discover the most popular search trends, keywords, and topics.

Google has confirmed rumors that a search algorithm update took place on Monday. Some sites may have seen their rankings improve, while others may have seen negative or zero change.

Google has posted on Twitter that it released a “broad core algorithm update” this past Monday. Google said it “routinely” does updates “throughout the year” and referenced the communication from the previous core update.

Google explained that core search updates happen “several times per year” and that while “some sites may note drops or gains,” there is nothing specific a site can do to tweak its rankings around these updates. In general, Google says to continue to improve your overall site quality, and the next time Google runs these updates, hopefully, your website will be rewarded.

Google explained that “pages that were previously under-rewarded” would see a benefit from these core updates.

Here is the statement Google previously made about this type of update:

Each day, Google usually releases one or more changes designed to improve our results. Some are focused around specific improvements. Some are broad changes. Last week, we released a broad core algorithm update. We do these routinely several times per year.

As with any update, some sites may note drops or gains. There’s nothing wrong with pages that may now perform less well. Instead, it’s that changes to our systems are benefiting pages that were previously under-rewarded.

There’s no “fix” for pages that may perform less well, other than to remain focused on building great content. Over time, it may be that your content may rise relative to other pages.

Here is Google’s confirmation from today about the update on Monday:

More Solutions to Handle Your PDF Files

Getting PDF files online is often the primary step to work on them. More often than not, you would want to manage those files you have collected for future use, or make some modifications to certain PDF content, like inserting some sentences or leaving notes for certain parts to make them indicative to readers. Or you might want to read on e-Readers, like iPad, Sony Reader, Barnes & Nobles Nook, or Kindle after you get some interesting PDF eBooks.

PDFelement is the all-in-one PDF solution which is embedded in all those functions you can imagine for PDF. It is capable of converting PDF to dozens of documents format, including Word, Excel, PPT, EPUB, TIFF, RTF, image and more. A complete series of comment tools are available for making PDF illuminous to readers, such as inserting the note, highlight PDF content or drawing markups as you need.

Moreover, you are able to manage the PDF files as you need. For example, you can combine batch files into a single PDF or just split a single one into several pages, or crop certain parts of PDF pages to make them accessible for reuse. Another amazing feature is the OCR function which can turn scanned PDF into editable and searchable.

Step 1. Convert PDF to e-Readers Friendly Format

After you get some interesting PDF eBooks, you might want to read on e-Readers, like iPad, Sony Reader, Barnes & Nobles Nook, or Kindle, etc. To enhance your reading experience, you should convert PDF to EPUB, because PDF is too large to read on portable devices, while EPUB is suitable to read on any e-Readers.

All you need to do is to import the PDF files into PDFelement, move to the "Home" tab and hit the "To Others" button, select the "Convert to EPUB" from the drop-down menu. Seconds later, you will see the EPUB files ready for use.

Step 2. Combine PDF Files as You Want

If you are working on research papers, collecting PDF files from website won’t do much good to the writing process. You still should organize those documents and make them easy to retrieve and look up.

To combine multiple PDF files, go to the homepage and click the "Combine PDF" button, add all the files you need to merge. One click and you will have all those documents combined into one in seconds.

Step 3. Edit Scanned PDF (Optional)

You would need the OCR function if the PDF documents you found are image-based. You are unable to make changes to scanned PDFs if you don’t recognize them to editable PDF. Before you try to work on scanned PDF, you should perform OCR first.

Import the scanned PDF documents into PDFelement, and you will see a notice to inform you of performing OCR. Hit on the "Perform OCR" button and all you have to do is to wait for just several seconds, and the PDF can be modified as you want. Click on the "Edit" button on the upper left to start the editing process. You can edit text and images by clicking the "Edit" button.
