Rising Voices, a citizen media outreach initiative of the Global Voices, has just released the first of a series of planned guides, An Introduction to Citizen Media. This brief guide offers context and case studies which show how ordinary citizens across the world are using blogs, podcasts, online video, and digital photography to engage in an unmediated conversation which transcends borders, cultures, and differing languages. This unmediated conversation is of course available to the world through search. As search marketers, we have witnessed the growth of alternative media and the need to consider it in our search campaigns. This gives a global perspective.
