Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data And What The Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are


Tue 23 May 2017

This new book by former Google employee Seth Stephens-Davidowitz reveals the truth about the big questions we ask the collective knowledge.

Seth's new book titled "Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data And What The Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are" is typically America Centric but insights are as grand as it's title.

Inside just a few pages into the book you find new Insights about the racial divide across the USA. Traditionally it is thought that it is a divide of North and South but the numbers are in. It is clear from statistics of the "big data" in Google searches that racist terms are more likely from the East NOT the West. Seth then goes on to show the similar trends in the recent US elections that makes you go Hmmmmm....

This is just the beginning. He then sets off into big data insights into sexual behaviour, body image and why people have children... and whether they regret it.

These subjects are entertaining and sell books, but there is also the science and support reason to "look". For instance searches about back pain followed by yellowing skin reveal that the individual searching about the subject is likely to suffer pancreatic cancer.

As a digital marketer, insights into business data, search terms and nuances contained within are the source of better decisions, revelations and the occasional gold nugget. The business outcome from ONGOING refinement to SEO and search strategy generates more leads and more business every time and we have many examples to demonstrate it.

What business leaders have to say about eCentral

"... to a site that is user friendly, produces fantastic results"

We have been working with eCentral for over a year now ...and will continue to use his services indefinitely due the complete satisfaction we have in this arrangement. They have taken us from a web site that was hard to manage and invisible to a site that is user friendly, produces fantastic results in terms of direct business...they have placed us into top 5 positions ...and I can now see the steps they took to grow our understanding, knowledge and then take the steps to grow our online success. Can't recommend them highly enough.

You might ask, why do John's web designs work so well?

No matter how clever in an IT sense web developers may be, if they don’t understand the basic principle that web sites are a business’s window to the world and should convert information into revenue, they aren’t of much value. For these reasons, I have immense respect for John Nayler and his knowledge and skills and highly recommend him to anyone who may be thinking of engaging his services.

eCentral consistently delivered software systems that sustained our growth and the need for bespoke software to support the business model.

The simplicity of the systems and software enabled staff to proceed with minimal training while delivering reports integral to the management of the business. By the time the systems were built, eCentral had gone on to construct a Trust Accounting System which was fully integrated with the rest of the application set streamlining our workflow significantly and providing substantial cost saving due to efficient work processes. For an IT consultant, John has a unique capacity to interrogate the processes within the business and understand the business drivers. His solutions were always with our specific business outcomes in mind. I have, in over 40 years in business, found this to be a very rare combination. I highly recommend the software development capabilities of John Nayler and eCentral.
