    Have you ever been writing out a Status Update on Facebook and thought, “There is so much wit in this post, I should get paid for my thoughts!”? Or, “If only I could make some money off these awesome photos I am sharing with my audience.” Of course you have, because you’re a clever person but you still need to pay the bills. There have been attempts by the major social networks of the world to pay users for their originally-generated content, but most have fallen short or somehow intruded on users’ privacy policies and terms and conditions. But that…
  • How to Quickly Edit Photos For Your WordPress Site

    Do you ever need to make a quick tweak to a photo before you add it to your site? You need to change the size, crop, or adjust coloring quickly and are stumped to find an easy solution? One of my favorite down & dirty image editing sites is PicMonkey. Why you should edit photos before putting them on your website Often, people use photos from their cameras for their websites. Today’s cameras, be it professional SLR or camera-phone style, produce huge image files. The size of an average JPG from an average camera can be anywhere from 1-3 Megabytes. On a website, a file that large…

  • 22 Reasons Why Your Website Sucks

    Depth of Knowledge by Jeff Sauer

    17 Jul 2014 | 10:30 am
    Authors note: These observations have been assembled based on 18 years as a web developer, Internet marketer, web analyst and project manager. All examples are fictional and meant to be intentionally humorous. The reality is that it’s freaking hard to launch a meaningful website. It takes time, money and patience to get things done the right way. While this article points out particular faults that are made during the process, my hope is that you can use it as a checklist for “what not to do” on your next website launch. This is one of those posts that has been in my drafts folder for…

  • Don’t Confuse Content Marketing and Thought Leadership

    Kevin Lynch
    13 Oct 2014 | 9:36 am
    The tsunami of social platforms and networks for sharing content has greatly expanded the opportunity for “thought leaders” to spread their gospel. But has this proliferation of information provided clarity or is it simply more noise than substance? I believe the jury is still out. Confusion over the difference between thought leadership and content marketing is part of the problem. Too often the terms are used synonymously. Although similar, they have distinct roles in the content ecosystem. True thought leadership needs to take the long view on topics and issues.  It’s typically not…

    Anyone who works with content will instantly get the title of this blog. Managing an organization’s content can make you feel like you are standing in the midst of a vortex: a swirl of demands, authors and topics that draws everything into its path, assuming all of its energy. For Association managers, the context vortex can be even more of a challenge. The unique business and operational models of the association bring a host of additional issues ranging from changing leadership to new sources of competition. Luckily, there is a solution: content strategy. Content strategy organizes the…

    Why Employee Advocacy and Evangelism Works – A Real Story With coffee in hand one morning, I started the painful daily task of cleaning out my inbox. In the mix of stuff was an email from the airline I have flown almost exclusively for the last eight years and it changed the course of my entire day. The news regarding my loyalty program wasn’t good. It was the last straw in a growing pile of frustrating changes that I refused to be trapped under anymore. I went from “I love you”, to “OK I’ll hang in there”, to “We are breaking up!” in the last two years. After verifying…

    Beyond the PDF: The Case for Content Innovation B2B content strategy has evolved significantly in the past few years with leading brands considering the information needs of the multiple decision-makers in the buying center. They create faceted content roadmaps that consider the different context, format preferences, level of detail and influences for each topic for each person in the buying center. Gone are the days when the company selling to another enterprise can cram all the information into a single white paper and offer a gated PDF for download. Instead, brands need to consider new…

  • How I Know Which of Your Links Are Bad – Link Profile Review Tips

    Travis Brown
    16 Oct 2014 | 7:29 am
    Link profile maintenance is an unavoidable, recurring task important to the health of your website. Even if you haven’t done anything shady in the past, it is well worth it to pop open the links pointing to your site in Google Webmaster Tools to find out what Google is looking at in regards to your site’s links. Now, if you received a penalty message, the time is nigh to detect and squash the bad links. Either way, reviewing links for preventive measures or a penalty is much the same: look for patterns or negative aspects of external linking domains. The first step is to pull link data…
  • The Big Idea (a Camp Counselor’s Guide to Inspiration at Portent)

    Brea Starmer
    14 Oct 2014 | 9:30 am
    I am a camp counselor.  You know the kind: clipboard in hand, singing loud and off-key, with a huge smile plastered on my (no-makeup) face.  I know all of the ways to identify a Cedar tree, how to cook beef stew in aluminum foil on the campfire, and the best bed-time stories for a 12 year-old.  I know the cure for the occasional case of homesickness and often think I am invincible to inclement weather. Growing up as a camper, then a camp counselor, and now a trainer of counselors has taught me many lessons.  The parallels of working with sixth grade campers to working with marketing…

Their skills and approach are a constant inspiration, and I can’t say it enough times: It’s such an honor to get to work with this team. Every day, through ups and downs (and ups again). So when Portent got nominated for five Search Awards, I was pretty dang proud, and a wave of high fives traveled through the office. When we won the Best SEO Campaign of 2014, though, I was…
  • Six Ways to Win on your Competitor’s Branded Keywords

    Chad Kearns
    9 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Occupying your competitor’s SERP space with a pay-per-click ad provides the ability to capture traffic and convert visitors into customers who may have had previous intentions of spending their money elsewhere. While bidding on the branded terms of your competitors is not an innovative practice, poor execution is something we see over and over again. Poor execution when buying on your competitor’s brand names is a terrific way to flush your ROAS down the drain. When looking to go after this type of paid traffic, it is important to look at two sides of the paid search user journey- first,…
  • Google Custom Affinities Is Here: What You Should Do

You can read about it on The Verge: Google rolls out custom affinity audiences ad tool for targeting very specific groups of people We’ve been researching this for a few years now. We started showing our results when I babbled about random affinities and such a few years back at MozCon. Right now Google is discussing this in terms of paid ads, but I strongly suggest getting in line with best practices on the organic and social side. There’s one crucial action to take:…

  • Slashing journalism won’t bring new readers, more revenue to newspapers

    Greg Collier
    14 Oct 2014 | 6:25 am
    Nearly 20 years after the Internet became a thorn in the side of newspapers, the old-school print industry continues to take steps to soften the blow that the Web has had on its business model. The problem is that newspapers, as part of their effort to become one with the digital side of news, keep making the same mistake. They keep chopping the journalism side of the business, the side that creates the original content that keeps visitors – and the eyeballs for their ads – clicking on their sites. This time around, it’s the mighty New York Times that’s slashing newsroom jobs…
  • NFL Under Fire: What Happens after the Buck Stops?

    Greg Collier
    23 Sep 2014 | 4:24 am
    For sake of full disclosure, I’m a big fan of NFL football – the rivalries, the loyalty of the fans, the final-second plays that lead to victories and upsets. What I’m not a fan of is the off-the-field behavior that has dominated headlines early in this season. In a league as large as the NFL, there’s bound to be a few bad seeds in the bunch. But the gravity of these allegations – domestic abuse, child abuse, sexual assault and more – have put a spotlight on the NFL’s inability to control bad behavior. Sure, the league issued fines and suspensions – but for the…

    Any business owner needs to stay ahead of the trends, and unfortunately, that applies to trends in crime. I’ve said before in blog posts and TV interviews that we don’t carry personals because they can be used as a front for prostitution and human trafficking. We don’t carry pet sale ads, as they often trade in animals that have been bred through puppy mills—breeders who literally breed animals to death, leaving them undernourished and caged without proper exercise or loving contact. We simply won’t even take a chance at supporting criminal industries, so we don’t run the ads that…
  • The Boss Always Answers to Someone – Even in Professional Sports

    Greg Collier
    6 May 2014 | 6:37 am
    I sometimes hear people say, with a tone of envy in their voices, about how great it must be to own a company, to be the boss, to call all the shots and not have to answer to anyone. Those perceptions of what life as the boss is like – especially that last one about not having to answer to anyone – are kind of funny to me, largely because, at some point, we all answer to someone. As the owner of a small business, I’m the one who makes the business decisions for Geebo. But in reality, I’m far from being the one who calls the shots. The customers – whether they’re the…
  • Risky Business: Watch for Business Models that Boost the Bottom Line but Tarnish the Reputation

    Greg Collier
    14 Apr 2014 | 12:30 pm
    There’s an interesting debate going on in San Francisco with Airbnb, where a crackdown on short-term rentals – especially those being advertised on online sites like Airbnb – are leading to lease violations and eviction notices. The site, Airbnb, connects people looking to make a few bucks by renting out space in their own homes with visitors who are looking to save a few bucks by using alternative accommodations when they pop into a city for a short visit. It’s kind of like they’re hotel rooms, except that they’re not. They’re residential homes and apartments. And in…

Technically, any type of art or building that has ever been made can be considered to be part of the history of design, but most people think specifically about the field of graphic design when this particular topic comes up.

Life would be easier; you’d weigh less; you’d have more money. The list goes on… Cut yourself some slack. You made the best decision you could with the information we had at the time. The key is to remember that and then act on the information you have. At any point you can decide to change things and then make that change happen.

    It comes as no surprise that for many businesses, Yelp has become one of the leading referral sources generating the most traffic to your business’ website. There are over 138 million monthly visits to Yelp worldwide and 500,000 reported calls everyday. These statistics goes to show how powerful Yelp can be for a business, big or small in generating a sale or/and lead.

A recent study from Software Advice, a company that reviews hotel management tools, shows that almost 60% of travelers watch online videos about their destination. Of the travelers surveyed, 50% of them preferred to watch these videos on the hotel’s website and away from traditional sites like YouTube or Instagram.

    Guests are quick to incorporate the latest technologies and gadgets into their day-to-day lives and expect your property to be compatible. The common thread between most new gadgets is their need for internet connectivity, typically through WiFi. WiFi availability is consistently rated as a top factor in the decisions making process when booking a hotel. Most guests expect it to be free, but some are still willing to pay for higher quality service. The problem is, most property websites say nothing about the quality or speed of the service.

    The most important part of your website is your value proposition. Find out how to communicate it in words and images. Too often, we confuse our tag line with our value proposition. For a website, the value proposition is the critical message that asks a visitor to explore further and to purchase. Famous value propositions include Zappos’ “365 day return policy and we pay shipping both ways.” Warby Parker offers “Order up to 5 of our vintage-style sunglasses.

It’s the physical space where your website files sit on a physical server that’s connected to the internet 24/7.

You need to have hosting to house the actual website.

No one was ever quite sure what it was for or what it was supposed to do. It launched in May 2009 and in August 2010, Google announced that Wave was no longer being developed. It might have been the privacy snafus that killed it, but it might also have been the lack of clarity, the complex features and the general lack of demand. Even big companies make mistakes.

  • How to Kill an SMB Referral Source Without Really Trying

    16 Oct 2014 | 9:12 am
    How one small business owner killed the goose that laid the golden egg. Like many of you, I'm an SMB business owner. I love my customers - they're what gets me up in the morning. I generally like and care about them and do everything I can to help them be successful. They weren't easy to get, so my mission is to do everything possible to keep them. I also believe in John Lennon's "karmic wheel". I think it's important to help people without expecting anything in return. Unfortunately, sometimes no good deed goes unpunished. I wanted to share an experience from my career as an…

    I was sat round a board room table with a group of  directors of a fairly large company. The managing director laughed when we talked about his website being mobile friendly. Apparently, “people won’t search for their technical products on a mobile device”. I could have left it there, but I hate assumptions. Especially when it comes to marketing. So we checked his analytics and found out that almost a third of the current visitors to his site viewed it on a mobile or tablet. “Oh, that’s interesting..” Yeah, it is interesting. It’s interesting to me that many companies never…

    A few days ago we decided to do some research to judge the potential take-up on a course we’re offering to small business. Now we know that small business owners don’t have much time, but we also know they don’t have much money so we think have an answer. However, our research pointed to some SEO companies offering VERY cheap SEO. Given everything that’s gone on with Google lately, can they actually still be doing this? I was sent a link… The link I had been sent advertised quarterly SEO work for less than forty quid, including VAT. Wow. Their website said that…

    Peter Brooke
    14 Oct 2014 | 2:22 pm
    Advertisers crafting contextual advertising campaigns based on literal keyword search-based actions or past guest actions are losing the war in what I’m calling “moments that matter”.  The movement toward real contextual, more humanized advertising is still much in its infancy and most advertisers just haven’t grasped or mastered its true potential. The result is irrelevant, inappropriate, ill-timed, often outdated messages that fail to connect you to your guests in a meaningful way and in some instances, actually harm your brand perception. The word “contextual” comes from the…

PR pros often are better able to respond in the “now” than their marketing counterparts. They study trends, topics and keywords and know how to insert themselves into conversations. They also are much more aware of the abbreviated news cycle. 1. Response time PR typically handles media and influencer relations, which means they know how to work within the shortened and fleeting news cycle. They…

    If the dawn of the Internet age gave newspaper editors a headache, the ubiquity of smartphones and mobile devices is giving them a guillotine-worthy sore neck. The cull continues this week, with major newsprint entity Transcontinental throwing 20 more newspaper operations onto the funeral pyre. For marketers, this is the end of an era for traditional PR, where pitching the editors, or old media gatekeepers, was all that mattered. These days, it’s much harder to justify a media spend on print (and to a lesser extent, radio and television); you’re promised exposure to 100,000 or 200,000 or…

    You don’t want to just throw your item out into that vast Internet ocean without preparation. It is not going to swim; it might sink. Maybe it is something to do with the arts. There’s a process you have to follow if you want to be successful. Part of this process is receiving feedback on […]

  • Franchise Location Selection, How Online Marketing Helps

    4 Oct 2014 | 4:15 pm
    As regional franchise developer, geographically how do you decide where to put your new franchise locations? If you’re in a new market, where do you put your second and third franchise sites geographically? Close to each other or far apart? How do you decide?There are obviously many considerations that determine franchise site locations, but if online marketing is important to the success of your franchise marketing efforts (and it better be), here are some factors to consider.The consequences of not effectively locating franchise locations in a strategic manner are many, but primarily…
  • How Southwest Airlines Failed Customer Expectations

    30 Sep 2014 | 9:17 pm
    Customer Expectations are so important in any business. It can mean the difference between a satisfied customer or a disgruntled customer that spreads the word of bad service to all their friends.I’m a regular flyer on Southwest Airlines. Love their efficiency and I know the system so I know how to get a seat I’ll be happy with, and they’re easy to get in and out. My expectations of their service was always clear – no frills, confirm your flight online and get an early boarding – great.  I always despised other airlines and their inefficient processes. Plus ,…
  • Facebook Ads vs Google Ads: A Case Where Facebook Wins

    26 Sep 2014 | 10:18 pm
    When thinking about lead generation online Google Adwords is often part of initial discussions for driving leads, and I would say in many cases it’s one of the most effective at lead generation for a number of different reasons. Facebook ads as a tactic generally don’t come up as often in initial conversations. Below we outline in one case the clear difference between Facebook and Google ads. And what is also very apparent is the Facebook ads vs. Google Adwords cost difference.Facebook Ads vs Google Ads.

  • Advertising on Yelp: What you should consider.

    9 Aug 2014 | 5:30 pm
    Yelp appears to have been gaining more and more online awareness with consumers, since it is the #1 online review site. I know I frequent Yelp more often these days. Clients had been asking me, “should I advertise with Yelp?”, but often I would defer to Google PPC as I was skeptical of what Yelp could deliver. I would tell them, if you’re getting results on Google and there’s more inventory still available, add to your Google budget.Consider these issues before you advertise on #Yelp #PPC.Click To Tweet - Powered By CoScheduleHowever, finally I placed several eager…

Do you ever wonder if your ads are even written effectively?Perhaps you have hired a media buyer that is placing ads for you. Or maybe an ad rep for a local magazine or newspaper sold you on a 6-month advertising package and she is going to help you create your ads.At the end of the day you know you have to spend on advertising to acquire customers but you can’t afford to waste your money on ineffective ads that aren’t giving you a return on your investment.

  • Local Search, Part Three: 6 Steps To Managing Your Reputation on Review Sites

    Bernadette Coleman
    15 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Once you’ve said what you want to say about your business in online listings, you need to turn your attention to what others are saying. Most often these ‘others’ are customers who review your company’s products and services on sites such as Yelp, Home Advisor, Judy’s Book, Trip Advisor and Google+ Local. Some sites — Open Table, Zagat and Urban Spoon, for instance — review only a single type of business, in this case, restaurants. Free vs. Fee Some sites are free and others, notably Angie’s List, charge a fee to join. Usually the fee is assessed on consumers, not on business…

    30 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    As we near the end of 2014, it’s more apparent than ever how social media is a core aspect of our society. People around the world spend more time communicating through social media platforms than talking on the phone or constructing emails. They access their accounts and stay connected through every device imaginable, ranging from desktops and laptops to tablets and mobile phones. Social media platforms are used by people in every walk of life. Middle-aged adults use them to stay in touch with old high school and college buddies. Businesses use them to advertise their products and…

  • The Intersection of Content and Quality in the Digital World: Stop Writing Disposable Content

    24 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    The content we write on the Web has become disposable and overcrowded, with websites that say the same things as each other, and brands that are publishing to be publishing. Don’t be another brand to fall into the trap of creating disposable content. But first… Let’s understand why brands create content non-stop as part of their strategy to drive website traffic. Brands Publish Content Because: It creates signals for the search engines, such as Google and Bing, to determine where a site ranks.

    In June of this year I presented at the SMX Advanced conference in Seattle about a topic that is near and dear to my heart: Dealing with the problem of (not provided) keywords in our web analytics tools. As someone who has taught Google Analytics certification courses for the past 4 years, I receive questions nearly every day asking what to do about missing keyword data. At first, I said that we should hope that Google would change their mind and start providing Keyword data again. Time went on and wishful thinking turned into denial, denial turned to conspiracy theories and then came…

    Authors note: These observations have been assembled based on 18 years as a web developer, Internet marketer, web analyst and project manager. All examples are fictional and meant to be intentionally humorous. The reality is that it’s freaking hard to launch a meaningful website. It takes time, money and patience to get things done the right way. While this article points out particular faults that are made during the process, my hope is that you can use it as a checklist for “what not to do” on your next website launch. This is one of those posts that has been in my drafts folder for…

One thing to note is that this year not every announcement from the keynote is publicly available, so I will only be able to share the publicly available information from the summit. This years conference theme is Data in Action, which is a natural succession to the theme last year of “Access, Empower, Act”. It seems as if many of the announcements will revolve around how do we take action from the…

    Over the past two weeks, we have explained why Facebook advertising is necessary for restaurants and the ad options available. Next is how marketers can optimize each ad though the use of extensive targeting using data-driven insights. Facebook’s targeting options allow restaurants to optimize each and every ad by putting the content in front of the exact audience it was created to influence.

    Consumers today are pulling out their phones more than ever to research the world around them, including finding the best place to eat. Restaurants that don’t have a mobile-optimized website will be at a disadvantage in both search results and the perception of today’s mobile-oriented consumers. As of June 2014, mobile internet usage exceeded desktop usage for the first time. Despite this massive increase in mobile usage, the shift toward mobile hasn’t been fully embraced by businesses, with more than 45 percent saying they don’t have a mobile site or app right now, according to…

    18 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
     Sometimes, you come across a marketing concept so simple and effective you wonder why everyone didn’t think of it ages and ages ago. I know I’m certainly not the only person who’s gotten that impression from Bryan Kramer, who spoke at Social Shake-Up in Atlanta. Bryan argues that traditional marketing categories (like business-to-business and business-to-consumer) are not only misleading, but actually problematic. They get it all wrong because communication – and especially communicating via social media – isn’t about the traditional B2B channels or…
  • Is This What the Collaborative Economy Looks Like?

    14 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    The Collaborative Economy – a keynote at Social Shake-Up with Jeremiah Owyang – left an unexpected impression on me that’s had me thinking for weeks. Jeremiah’s idea isn’t complicated: that people and businesses are getting together to fund, share, and promote new ways of doing things, and that’s changing the way businesses and industries work. The longer-term implications are less straightforward, though... For example, how many of us could have predicted the rise of crowd-funding, where long lists of small donors fund and launch projects that might not…

While reading level is always a consideration, I’ll be the first to admit it’s something I don’t focus on too heavily, in favour of fluidity and authentic thought flow. That may be changing, though, thanks to a presentation I watched at Social Shake-Up by Ira Haberman of Atomic Reach. His company offers software that can help you analyze the reading level of your content and how well it matches the level of the visitors who are coming to your…

    Robert Glazer
    14 Oct 2014 | 6:41 am
    If you’ve been to a major conference recently, chances are you’ve been scanned. Most conference badges now come equipped with QR codes that allow attendees with smartphones to scan your badge and capture your contact information. This often happens when you have a discussion with someone at a booth or in exchange for a giveaway. Other people may ask to scan you if you just look their way as they try to fill their ‘scan quota.’ Technology has changed marketing dramatically over the last twenty years and now it’s even changing the way we interact in person. But in this particular…

Given the size of the affiliate channel (it currently accounts for 10-20% of online sales), there is shockingly little content out there for marketers looking to maximize their affiliate marketing efforts.

    AP’s Vice President of Performance Marketing, Meghan Schwartz Joseph, published an article in the August issue of FeedFront Magazine. The article focused on the important issue of making sure your affiliate program is properly aligned with your brand. Many members of the affiliate industry have rightfully been focused on attribution – separating out incremental affiliate revenue from that cannibalized from other sources. Their goal is to cut out the commissions they are wasting on affiliates that steal existing customers out of the shopping cart. But there can be other hidden costs…

Happy days; 2,300 words. Then nonfiction, working on the two business books: 1,800. Next, Honey’s breakfast. Over the past few days, the weather’s been cooler, so her arthritis is bothering her. However, she’s still up for a game, and over-eats if she gets the chance. Then, my own breakfast, while working through email.

Nevertheless, I managed 1,900 words on the mystery novel, and 1,700 words on the two nonfiction books. So, it wasn’t too bad. I make Honey’s breakfast, and then my own.

    As content marketing strategies pick up speed, new content marketing tools like podcasts are being discovered as ways of getting the point across in marketing campaigns.

However, tossing up a site that matches your CEO's favorite colors is probably not the best option. A lot of time has gone in to studying color theory, and we've learned that numerous factors can dramatically impact the number of conversions you get (and conversions = cash). A good graphic designer, educated in color theory, knows how the use of color can attract - or deter - your audience. They know how certain colors make people feel, and more importantly, they know how to implement the…
  • The Problem with Local Search Marketing

    29 Sep 2014 | 8:08 am
    In many local areas, especially in the Northern Virginia / DC Metro area, your business will need to reach a large service area, including many cities, towns, neighborhoods, counties etc. Yet your physical location may only be in one of these areas, or perhaps in just a few. How can you rank in areas where you don’t have an office? It’s tough! See, Google places a LOT of emphasis on your location and on numerous other factors, such as the number of citations and referrals to your site that match local indicators. Alas, we have a Solution:  There is no shortcut. You can’t fill in a…

    On 24th of July, 2014; Google has announced quite a significant local search algorithm update. Though initially the renowned search engine had informed that the update has got no specific name, now it has came to be called as PIGEON as it is a local search update compared to the innocent bird that keeps returning home.

    Jeff Brewer
    17 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    The SEO industry has reached the point where the number of discredited and outdated “black hat” techniques for improving organic search engine rankings far outweighs the acceptable “white hat” tactics that can be implemented without fear of a Google penalty. Webmasters who continue to engage in unacceptable SEO practices, whether out of plain ignorance or pure stubbornness, are putting their traffic and revenue at grave risk. While some “black hat” techniques may continue to work in the short term, sooner or later Google is going to track these offending websites down. Depending…

    Recovery from a Google Penguin penalty is entirely possible, but it will take time and a considerable amount of work to get your organic rankings back. Once an update penalty has been applied against your website, you will not be able to rank no matter what you do until your link profile has been cleaned up to Google’s satisfaction and they have refresed their algorithm. Which has not happened in almost one year.

  • Why More Inbound Links Won’t Necessarily Improve Your Search Ranking

    Jeff Brewer
    14 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Inbound links to your website are still one of the most effective ways of improving your search engine rankings, and are likely to remain so for the foreseeable future. Despite the many problems associated with link building, there is simply no better method of measuring the relevance and authority of a website. In past years, webmasters were able to easily rank even low quality sites with little relevant content simply by pointing thousands of back links at them. This in turn led to a decline in the overall quality of the results being returned for search engine users, and prompted Google to…

    Warning: This is controversial! I’ve been around for a long time and remember life before Panda. What’s that? Panda was a change in Google’s search results algorithms that was rolled out in February, 2011, with follow-ups after that. The purpose was to reduce the rank of “spammy,” low quality websites so that people who searched for content would be more likely to get useful content. The results was that many article directories such as no longer appeared in searches. This is also my personal experience. Before Panda, when I did searches, I…

In reality, when I made that promise it did not seem much but only way down the track did I realise what a commitment I’d made. Sometimes I was up until late at night writing two or three articles, even scheduling them in advance to go live over the next few days just so I could give myself a night off. I can see why a lot of bloggers see it as a full-time job. My main problem was this: my blog focused on a niche sport in…

    If you’ve been keeping up to date with AdWords news, or clicked on the Ad Extensions tab in AdWords itself, you may have heard of something called the callout extension. But what is a callout? And why would you need one (or six)? Allow me to elaborate. Callout extensions are sometimes referred to as “non-clickable sitelinks”. This sounds pretty useless until you remember that people rarely click on sitelinks anyway [1]. So the benefits of a callout are pretty much the same as for a sitelink. Just to remind you, these are: Taking up space More room for USPs Higher Ad Rank [2] However,…

Friday’s release is aimed at fighting spam on the web, but as many an SEO professional knows, Google can be notoriously ruthless when it comes to updating their aggregators, often painting a wide brush over previously accepted SEO tactics. So do we need to worry? Not if you’re doing it right, says MediaVision’s Digital Strategist, Bridget Gersie: “Digital marketing and SEO professionals are anticipating the impact of the latest Penguin 3.0 update after its release last Friday.

    3 Oct 2014 | 5:54 am
    As easy as it seems, being relevant, friendly and professional on social media in any given situation is an art form. In one of my earliest internships I remember a storm brewing on a brand’s Facebook page as two die hard fanboys argued over the celebrity ambassador we used at the time. It was 2011 and the etiquette surrounding this was less defined than it is now. The PR team chose to delete the heated exchange, which led to a huge backlash. They were eventually criticised by Facebook users of censorship and limiting their freedom of speech, but obviously it would be bad press to leave it…

    The message comes in a variety of neatly packed phrases: “fail fast,” “failure is a gift,” “embrace failure.” What is this hype all about, and why is failure so in right now? Failure is nodded to as a key stepping stone in the path toward success by thought leaders and business professionals alike. As the award winning author J.K Rowling puts it, “it is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well have not lived at all – in which case you fail by default.” Highlighting failures is even trending in several well…

Some businesses handle crisis well, some take precautions and learn from previous mistakes, and some will freeze and fail.

    “The Future is Now.” What may have been a generic, faux-catchy phrase, angled at selling you something you probably didn’t need, has turned into a true statement… at least when it comes to the technology that is being developed and cultivated. Asimovian productions of robot housekeepers, driverless cars, automated kitchens, and online education aren’t nearly crazy as they must have seemed when the sci-fi legend made them in 1964. The year is 2014, and technology drives how people live. Devices that–at one point–were fiction, are slowly but surely becoming a…

    Why does my 2-year-old iPhone battery die in 3 hours? Why are household appliances built with such poor quality these days? Remember your parents’ washing machine? It lasted for decades. Today, they barely last 5 years. And don’t even think about repairing them. It’s cheaper to replace the whole thing. In some industries, quality seems to have gone out of style. That’s a problem I hear marketers complain about in their digital agencies too. How many times have you been disappointed? You should expect high quality service from your partners and agencies, but it’s…

If you get a chance, I totally recommend checking out Romania on your next European vacation. During the event, one of the…

    You can’t analyze how a great painting makes you feel. You can’t compute the beauty of a sunset. There’s no algorithm for the ocean’s majesty.

If your members see an advertisement to your blog, they might click it and check it out but if you use great forum blog promotion skills and publish interesting content that links to your blog, they will probably click on those links quicker than clicking on a flat out advertisement link.

    Last Friday, October 17, Google officially updated its “Penguin” algorithm, which they use to help determine search engine rankings. This specific algorithm helps Google identify sites that are considered too spammy. Penguin is Google’s way of targeting sites that have violated their strict link building guidelines. This latest update is the 6th release of Penguin but the first since October 2013. The roll out of Penguin 3.0 was a breath of fresh air for many publishers who may have been penalized for their link building tactics in the past. This update was their first chance to see if…

    Are you doing the best you can do with your real estate company’s email marketing strategy?

    Generating qualified leads is one of the biggest challenges for home builders. Some of today’s popular lead generation techniques include pay-per-click advertising or buying lead lists, email lists, and direct mail lists. Unfortunately, each of these techniques has significant downsides. Leads from these techniques are usually not highly qualified, resulting in wasted time by sales professionals. Additionally, each of these techniques is expensive, and cold contacting people through purchased lists often makes them angry. So, if those tactics don’t produce qualified leads, what does? The…

Although it appears to be more difficult to receive Series A funding, the requirements have remained unchanged for more than a decade.

  • Google Combats Piracy with Algorithm Update and New Ad Format

    Peter Roesler
    20 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    As the most popular search engine in the world, Google is often tasked with helping to solve problems they didn’t cause. One example of this phenomena is the global fight against digital piracy. Google doesn’t host sites with pirated material but they are often charged with not doing enough to prevent internet searchers from using Google to find sites that do wantonly copyright infringing materials. After recently facing harsh criticism about their lackluster efforts to stem piracy, Google has announced algorithm and ad format changes that should help to curb internet piracy. Last month,…

    17 Oct 2014 | 5:11 am

Though some companies, like Samsung, were making larger model smartphones for years, now that Apple is doing it, people are starting to notice and to ask what this means for marketers.

    For a long time, ads on Facebook were less effective the more local a business was. It’s easier to target to an audience of all young women in America than it is to market all the young woman who live near a boutique that’s advertising on Facebook. At least, it was hard. Facebook recently introduced Local Awareness Ads specifically made to help small local business owners connect with Facebook users near their location. “With local awareness ads, businesses can quickly and easily find new customers by showing ads to groups of people who are near that business’s neighborhood,” the…

  • Google Rolls Back Unpopular Local Search Changes

    Peter Roesler
    14 Oct 2014 | 5:45 am
    The Google’s algorithms work are a a scientific black box to internet marketers. SEO experts can see the inputs (i.e. the search terms) and we see the output (i.e. result pages) but we don’t know what’s happening to go from one to the other. This means that marketers can mostly only speculate about what Google has changed to the algorithm or why. In recent weeks, Google has been making changes to its search algorithm that have reversed other changes that had a negative effect on local SEO.
