  • Google Told Me I'm Pregnant: From Strings to Diagnosis

    CraigBradford
    19 Apr 2015 | 5:15 pm
    Posted by CraigBradford In the near future, I think Google Now could tell you are pregnant or diagnose you with a medical condition before your doctor ever could. Humans are great at recognising patterns but only if we know we are creating them or where to look. Remember the Target story of how they knew a young girl was pregnant before she or her father did? Increases in technology like smart watches and the trend of "the quantified self" mean messages like being told you are pregnant aren't impossible in the near future. So how do we go from weather reports and traffic updates to a medical…

To our expectation, we proved that our client-facing, research-driven content marketing strategy could have the same long-term impact on our own brand. Then, we were off to the races.  In early 2014, we launched a survey of more than 500 top-tier publishers. Then, we released…

    Posted by EricEnge It's time to look at your content differently—time to start understanding just how good it really is. I am not simply talking about titles, keyword usage, and meta descriptions. I am talking about the entire page experience. In today's post, I am going to introduce the general concept of content quality analysis, why it should matter to you, and how to use term frequency (TF) analysis to gather ideas on how to improve your content. TF analysis is usually combined with inverse document frequency analysis (collectively TF-IDF analysis). TF-IDF analysis has been a staple…

  • Consensus Bias

    Aaron Wall
    15 Apr 2015 | 7:10 am
    The Truth About Subjective Truths A few months ago there was an article in New Scientist about Google's research paper on potentially ranking sites based on how factual their content is. The idea is generally and genuinely absurd. You can't copyright facts, which means that if this were a primary ranking signal & people focused on it then they would be optimizing their site to be scraped-n-displaced into the knowledge graph. Some people may sugar coat the knowledge graph and rich answers as opportunity, but it is Google outsourcing the cost of editorial labor while reaping the rewards.

    Information is a commodity. Corporations are passing around consumer behavioral profiles like brokers with stocks, and the vast majority of the American public is none the wiser of this market’s scope. Very few people actually check the permissions portion of the Google Play store page before downloading a new app, and who has time to pore over the tedious 48-page monstrosity that is the iTunes terms and conditions contract? With the advent of wearables, ubiquitous computing, and widespread mobile usage, the individual’s market share of their own information is shrinking at an alarming…
  • Google Mobile Search Result Highlights

    Aaron Wall
    18 Mar 2015 | 4:19 pm
    Google recently added highlights at the bottom of various sections of their mobile search results. The highlights appear on ads, organic results, and other various vertical search insertion types. The colors vary arbitrarily by section and are patterned off the colors in the Google logo. Historically such borders have conveyed a meaning, like separating advertisements from organic search results, but now the colors have no meaning other than acting as a visual separator. We recently surveyed users to see if they understood what the borders represented & if they felt the borders had any…
  • Responsive Design for Mobile SEO

    Aaron Wall
    26 Feb 2015 | 3:49 pm
    Why Is Mobile So Important? If you look just at your revenue numbers as a publisher, it is easy to believe mobile is of limited importance. In our last post I mentioned an AdAge article highlighting how the New York Times was generating over half their traffic from mobile with it accounting for about 10% of their online ad revenues. Large ad networks (Google, Bing, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, etc.) can monetize mobile *much* better than other publishers can because they aggressively blend the ads right into the social stream or search results, causing them to have a much higher CTR than ads on…
  • You Can't Copyright Facts

    Aaron Wall
    11 Feb 2015 | 6:16 pm
    The Facts of Life When Google introduced the knowledge graph one of their underlying messages behind it was "you can't copyright facts." Facts are like domain names or links or pictures or anything else in terms of being a layer of information which can be highly valued or devalued through commoditization. When you search for love quotes, Google pulls one into their site & then provides another "try again" link. Since quotes mostly come from third parties they are not owned by BrainyQuotes and other similar sites. But here is the thing, if those other sites which pay to organize and…

Mobile search results no longer show the actual page URL, but instead show a breadcrumbs-like format of the URL structure. This is rolling out worldwide. The breadcrumbs-like information can show the site name in place of the domain name. This is rolling out in the U.S.

Mobile optimized sites have been all the rage since Google’s explicit February announcement that mobile-friendliness will be used as an organic ranking signal starting April 21.

    Why Is My Mobile-Friendly Label Missing in Google Search Results? was originally published on BruceClay.com, home of expert search engine optimization tips. As the April 21st deadline to make your site mobile-friendly approaches, many sites are checking to see if their pages get the “mobile-friendly” annotation in Google mobile search results. Those two words are Google’s promise to searchers that a result meets a certain standard of usability that mobile surfers are starting to expect.

Google has been forthright about the importance of having quality content on your site, and that’s why so many businesses feel obliged to go beyond the simple product listing page. Along with this opportunity comes the danger of creating content that no one (including the search engines) is interested in…

    11 Feb 2015 | 6:46 am
    What is the value of social media as it relates to retail ROI? Is there a point in putting sharing buttons on my e-commerce website if I don’t know how that translates to actionable data regarding revenue? Everyone is doing things with respect to social, but in e-commerce, what is the point? Can I even truly attribute social data to return on investment? These are good and absolutely fair questions. AddShoppers** is one of the coolest technologies I have ever seen for the e-commerce space and is the only offering I have encountered that has such a breadth of data on social ROI in online…
  • PR Pros: You’re still doing it wrong, even if you have a six figure income

    I don’t know about you, but if someone tells me my process is tedious and expensive, I may be receptive to hear what they are saying in the hopes that they can help me improve my life, either personally or professionally. Seven years ago, I didn’t believe inbox zero was ever possible. Today, I sell training modules on my inbox zero process. Public relations, especially in the age of blogging, has been quite a nightmare, to the point that in 2009, I called most PR pros public relations spammers. Many have blatant disregard for what people write about, and will use a distant mention…

    A pseudo-mathematical approach to being happier life, in almost every way possible. Whether you’re a naturally happy person, or often find yourself unhappy despite having “success” in the form of having love, family, money, power, or fame, I will show you how you be happier than you are right now. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to earn more than $75,000 to be any happier, and the Harvard Grant Study found that the “warmth of relationships throughout life has the greatest positive impact on life satisfaction”. So the question is, how can you create a life that moves…

I’m speaking from my experiences having been an employee at over 5 organizations before becoming a full-time entrepreneur. Here’s what your boss really cares about: 1. Raise the alarm bell before there’s a fire Your boss wants you to notify them when you or your team aren’t able to complete your tasks and meet your responsibilities on time and with a high degree of quality.

  • 5 Reasons “Why” is such a Powerful Question

    Dev Basu
    30 Mar 2015 | 7:29 pm
    Toddlers often have more clarity and curiosity in life than most adults. Categorically, they aren’t afraid of asking “why?” to seemingly every question that has an obvious answer. It’s no wonder that asking higher quality questions leads to better outcomes in your personal and professional life. So the real question is why do we not ask “why” more? Why do we assume we already know the answer, and become more preoccupied with asking what, how, when, and who? If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55…

    People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing; that’s why we recommend it daily. – Zig Ziglar The struggle is real. It’s just so much easier to “do nothing” even when there is so much that need’s to get done. To combat overwhelm, a to-do list is simply not enough. Prioritization and the 80/20 rule aren’t either. What you really need is that inner fuel that keeps pushing you harder, like a motivational high that gets you in the zone.

    The debate on the activity level on Google+ has raged for years. How many users are really active on it? Is the place a ghost town? Why hasn’t Google shut it down already?

Sit down and fasten your seat belts because here we go!

    If you are at all following the search industry news you have heard about the big Google mobile update coming on April 21 of this year, one that Google has said will have a larger impact on the search results than Panda or Penguin. One of the key recommendations that comes out of this is that you should test your pages in Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test Tool to see if your pages are deemed, well, mobile-friendly. You will get one of these two outputs as a result (number 1 if it passes, number 2 if it fails): In theory, if you pass this test, you are supposed to always get that mobile…

    I have previously noted the growth of “near me” and “near by” in mobile search. With the advent of mobile computing those phrases have moved rapidly into the search lexicon among phone searches. In a recent article at Think With Google, Matt Lawson noted: Google search interest in “near me” has increased 34X since 2011 and nearly doubled since last year. The vast majority come from mobile—80% in Q4 2014..

The differences are interesting and legion. There are some caveats like the fact that it uses a European proxy server and doesn’t reflect things like Google Now. Who knows how many other display types it doesn’t show as there is often variety by browser types, location and searcher as well as device type. I am not sure…

    Back in the late 2000s, I had a coworker tell me that Twitter was basically a “time suck”. The thought back then was that the SEO activity from Google most websites enjoyed was here to stay and that was good enough. There really wasn’t a need to place budget or time into Twitter as a marketing activity. Looking back, I can see why so many companies (and even marketers) failed to invest time and money in Twitter. There wasn’t a big return on the time spent vs. the exposure. The exposure was still pretty small in those early days. Fast forward to 2015, and Twitter has…

The hashtag is a clue to the type of information need the audience will have. You also have to be prepared with the right brand voice to use (one of authority and credibility) and make sure…

    Earlier this year, I conducted a survey of around 120 digital marketing consultants to understand the kind of leads they were seeking for their business. Not surprisingly, nearly 70% of the respondents had more than 25% of their leads coming from online search. Beyond these organic leads, Adwords, word of mouth referrals and content marketing were all extremely popular marketing channels to secure inbound leads for business. Inbound lead generation is often regarded a better alternative to cold calling and cold-emailing. This is because the leads that you receive are from targeted prospects…

    Quora is a very powerful, yet under-utilized marketing and brand building tool. Let’s not call it a tool though… Quora is the community. Quora is the crowd-sourced knowledge base. Quora may be the future of Wikipedia because it’s more flexible with anonymity and it has awesome built-in expertise metrics that can help search engines better understand the quality of content. Why search engines are not yet using Quora for better understanding facts and answers is beyond me but they may in the future.

SEO has progressed and advanced in multiple directions. By and large SEO is about popularizing things on the Web now. What else is popularization about?   We don’t do SEO anymore It took me 7+ years to realize this but modern SEO is much more than expected.

Some nod and tell me that they already know. Others are amazed I’d feel that way. Their website could have the most boring B2B content in the world and I’d still hear, “It can’t be that bad. Can’t you just fix it up?” No. No I can’t. Whether you work in-house or freelance, you’ve probably faced the same situation. The challenge is, sometimes clients don’t listen to…

  • WordPress Accordion and Tabbed Content Can Negatively Affect SEO

    Late last year Search Engine Roundtable posted an article about the usage of tabs, accordions, and hidden content in websites. This article was a quick overview of how these design elements will negatively affect SEO within a website. The article seemed to lie under the radar and most people missed it. It’s so far under the radar, I haven’t heard much about it since I read the post in November. I decided this topic needed further discussion because a lot of designers and website owners are using WordPress accordion and tabbed content plugins without knowing the negative affect it has on…

As with all of Google’s updates, a lot of detail and analysis has been written already. Just search for “Google update mobile” and you’ll find no shortage of advice. Also (as usual) many SEO companies and internet marketers are seeking to cash in by selling products about how best to deal with forthcoming changes.

    A few weeks ago, one of our junior team asked me to host a training session to explain Schema markup. Specifically, what Schema is, and why we implement it.

  • Pixels Please: Image Scaling in CSS

    Tom Bennet
    26 Mar 2015 | 5:30 am
    Until now, web developers have had very little control over how browsers render images when they’re scaled. Take Mario, for instance: This is a 24×32 pixel image, scaled up using Photoshop to preserve its crisp, blocky composition. It’s a great example of the low-res pixel art that’s long been a staple of retro and indie games. Let’s see how our image is rendered in the browser when scaled up using CSS: As you can see, the effect is suboptimal – the browser’s default scaling algorithm (usually bi-linear interpolation) has applied anti-aliasing to the image. Whilst good…

    25 Mar 2015 | 4:20 am
    Back in February I contacted WPengine to ask if we could upgrade to PHP 5.5. With WPengine (and the way we’ve set up our DNS) this upgrade involved an IP address change in Builtvisible.com’s a-records. Following this change, I saw a drop in SEO visibility in our UK rankings so, I investigated. Sure enough, Searchmetrics showed a drop in UK rankings, but curiously, the US data appeared to show a big improvement. It became quickly obvious that the IP change was to blame, a location lookup revealed the problem. I’d originally set up our hosting to serve from a UK data centre,…

    You shouldn’t block Googlebots’s access to your CSS or JS files. We’ve known that for a long time, but more recently we’ve had reminders from around the community and Google themselves because of algorithm updates and proposed changes to the way mobile sites might be ranked in mobile search.

    Mobilegeddon. It’s coming and it’s inevitable. Are you ready? Like a shiver that runs down your spine, the term “mobilegeddon” has been creeping into all the major SEO blogs and forums and describes the impending Google algorithm update that is expected to boost mobile-ready sites and punish websites who don’t fall in line. This move by the world’s most popular search engine is seen as the “next step” into the future of online search according to the company.

    Ensuring that your business’s online data remains secure is of utmost importance. Ever since the infamous Target data breach in 2013 in which over 40 million customer credit and debit card numbers were stolen by hackers, companies are more on edge than ever about protecting sensitive information. Fortunately, security can be accomplished by using SSL. What is SSL, you ask?

    The reason growth hacking works has nothing to do with growth hacking and everything to do with blowing up organizational silos. What Is Growth Hacking? Marketers love to market.

At Hallam Internet we regularly have to inform our clients that their website traffic has not been as high or as valuable as they believe. So if you’ve noticed a spike in referral traffic in your Google Analytics account, you might conclude that more people are finally…

    It’s incredibly important to have a website that is mobile-friendly. April 21st is the date that Google will start penalizing sites that aren’t mobile. If your site isn’t set up for mobile by Monday, your page rank will suffer significantly in mobile searches. Google isn’t trying to punish people whose websites aren’t mobile-friendly. The update is intended to make it easier for mobile users to find websites that are designed for mobile use. This is a good update. Google has always been focused on maximizing user experience.

    In between major changes at your website, like content refresh or redesign, you can still make incremental improvements by working to improve the performance of individual pages. If you improve one page or post every work day, you’ll have some 250 improved pages each year. It’s worthwhile upkeep. But randomly dipping into your website and optimizing pages you happen to see is not the most effective approach. Take a more strategic approach to optimizing pages from your website, and you’ll see business benefits as well as SEO improvements. First, find the underperforming…

    When he was about four years old, my youngest son told a group of adults that astronauts had gone to the moon in the old days. It was true, but I remember the looks of consternation at the idea of astronauts being part of the old days. You may feel that way about websites, but it’s still accurate to say that in the old days, it was hard to change websites. When I first started, it could take months to get analytics code installed. Changing a phone number meant sending a request to a webmaster and waiting — again, it could be months. Changing site products or text could rarely be…

And it's not only because of all the preparation needed to make the migration smooth and fast; from an SEO perspective, the move could also mean having to build your rankings from scratch. This is where 301 redirects come in handy.

    In less than a week, a Google mobile update will be implemented to its search algorithm that will start to favour mobile friendly websites over non mobile friendly websites. Google has broken tradition and given advanced warning that they will be releasing this update. The fact they have done this indicates it could be one of their bigger updates, with some people predicting a bigger upset than Panda and Penguin. However, I’m going to refrain from agreeing or disagreeing until the update has been rolled out completely. As with many of Google’s large updates, it may take several days or…

    Should I Spend with Facebook? A common question that I get asked is: “should I spend my money on Facebook advertising?” – and on almost every occasion my answer is yes. At the very start of our social media journey, we tended to work with start-up businesses and SMEs, as we felt there was a gap in the market, in terms of generating a better ROI on smaller budgets. However, after mass growth, we began to find that large brands were suffering from their use of Facebook Advertising by wasting money on non-targeted ads with no real strategy behind what they were doing.

With the advent of new technologies such as CSS3 (which superseded CSS2), designers and developers are able to bring web pages and applications to life in a way formerly reserved for ‘Flash’ technology. I wanted to gather together some of the prettiest of those ‘pretty movements’ in the hope that you’ll get inspiration either as a designer looking to implement them or a business looking to hire a designer or agency to…

    Here at Tone, we read and bookmark more quality content than we have hot dinners (not literally, obviously). We do however go through so many that we could have listed over 100 from 2014 alone in this post. But, instead of over facing you with 100, we’ve single-handedly cherry-picked the most in-depth, insightful and actionable posts from 2014 for you to take in over the holiday period. The posts we include in this 2014 round-up are authored by some of the most influential people in the digital marketing landscape, and published on some of the most popular blogs on the internet.
  • The 6 Most Common Negative Keyword Mistakes in AdWords (and How to Fix Them)

    Anthony Mcloughlin
    14 Nov 2014 | 6:03 am
    Earlier this year Econsultancy reported that 58% of companies were expecting to increase their PPC budgets, 34% were going to keep the same budget and only 9% expecting to decrease their budget. This shift in budget means an increase in PPC competition, and of course more money for Google! However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to increase your bids and PPC budget, it just means that you have to be pro-active with your AdWords optimisation. One way to do this effectively is to utilise negative keywords. No matter how big or small your AdWords account is, negative…

  • How to Advertise on LinkedIn

    Rebecca Stickler
    20 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    As more social networks roll out advertising features for businesses, you may find it too overwhelming to explore the options each one offers. If you’re like many advertisers, that could be reason enough to stick with the larger networks and ignore the rest. With 259 million members worldwide, LinkedIn doesn’t have quite as large of an audience as Facebook (1.4 billion) or Twitter (883 million), but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a valuable marketing tool. It can be just as effective as its larger counterparts – and even more so if you are a B2B company. LinkedIn caters to businesses…
  • What Are Data Brokers – And What Is Your Data Worth? [Infographic]

    WebpageFX Team
    16 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    Have you ever received an advertisement in the mail and been impressed by eerily relevant it was to your exact interests or situations? You may have chalked it up to coincidence, but that kind of accuracy probably didn’t happen by chance. What’s more likely is that the business purchased your information from a data broker. If you’re familiar with data brokers, this won’t come as a shock. But if you’re not already aware, data brokering is a multi-billion dollar industry made up of companies who collect consumer data and sell it to other companies, usually for marketing purposes. So…
  • 5 Best Practices for Breadcrumb Navigation 

    Jesse Eisenstein
    15 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    Breadcrumbs are a subtle element of a website that help improve usability and navigation. They’re a utility that often receive little acknowledgment; however, breadcrumbs can have a large impact and provide a plethora of benefits, such as lowering bounce rate, increasing conversions, and improving user satisfaction. Imagine you’re in a regular grocery store, except  something is missing. All of the aisle signs are gone! The only way to find bananas or bread is to go through every aisle. There’s no direct path. Pathing is what breadcrumbs are all about. They are usually found below the…

    Rebecca Stickler
    13 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    Is Pinterest a part of your marketing strategy? Although the platform is still relatively new territory for marketers, it could be worth looking into, considering that 69% of Pinterest users say that they’ve found an item they’ve purchased or wanted to purchase on it. As of 2015, 42% of online adult women use Pinterest, as well as 13% of online men. These numbers may not seem impressive compared to those of Facebook or Twitter, but in a survey of Pinterest users, 70% said they use it to “get inspiration on what to buy,” while only 17% of that same group said the same about Facebook.

    Nicole Kohler
    9 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    Downloadable ebooks, whitepapers, and guides are extremely powerful pieces of content. You’ve seen how well these items work from a lead generation standpoint, and now it’s your turn to get a piece of the pie. Problem is, you have no idea what to write an ebook about. Or if anyone would find your industry whitepapers worth reading, much less clicking a pop-up or opting into an email list for. And no matter what you do, you can’t seem to brainstorm an idea for a piece of content that hasn’t already been addressed by twenty different websites. Business owners struggle…

    If you have been working frantically to get all your client’s web pages mobile friendly according to Google’s mobile testing tool in Webmaster Tools before April 21, 2015, and you’ve noticed that some pages don’t check out, see if the client is running Remarketing ads.  If they are, chances are the script is creating a 300px by 13px iFrame on the page that breaks the mobile layout – depending on where you you put it in a div layer in your CSS.   There is a good discussion about this subject in the Google Webmaster Forum and a possible easy fix here.

Every year the founders of Google present a letter to their shareholders describing the goals they have for the company.  You can read them here. The letter usually comes out in May, and I anticipate this year’s letter will be as full of information as the previous letters.  The letter usually recaps the main areas of change at the company.  Last year’s letter mentioned its focus on health by acquiring Calico (focused on health, wellbeing and longevity) and Iris (smart contact lens for diabetics), and initiated a focus on…

    Google announced this morning that it is in the process of rolling out an entirely new update to the algorithm, this one called “Pelican.” The update will target mainly sites that have had a monopoly on the top search results for a long time. “The idea is to create disparity,” said a representative from Google earlier. “Preventing one site from having a monopoly creates a fresh experience for users and stops web developers from being too complacent.” Pelican is currently rolling out in Australia and Asia, according to Google. It is expected to hit the United States within the next…
  • An SEO’s Guide to URL and Page Structure

    Megan Kelly
    17 Mar 2015 | 7:52 am
    If you want Google to like your site, you need to appease Panda and Penguin. Panda is for content, and Penguin is for links. These statements are to SEOs as “plants need water and sunshine” are to botanists. Both of these examples are, of course, overly simplified explanations for complicated phenomena, and there are multiple outliers and variables to each. But as a general practice, SEO is at least partially about appeasing Google, and appeasing Google is at least partially about satisfying Panda and Penguin. These rules are straightforward enough, but it’s when you dig into the gray…

    Businesses around the world are paying more and more attention to Yelp, arguably the Internet’s largest social-local platform, and with good reason. Touting it’s average 135 million monthly users, dominance in local search engine results, and ability to shut down businesses over night, Yelp is force to be reckoned with.

    SEO as a service is built on the foundation that the effort put in now can still have an effect years down the road. So by default, the goal of SEO should be to grow for the long haul.

    Rebranding Your Brand’s Image with Mobile Friendly Website Redesign Tuesday, April 21, 2015. If this date isn’t already circled in red sharpie on your calendar, then it should be. In late February, Google made an announcement that many search engine marketers predicted would come as we entered the new year. According to an announcement on the Webmaster Central Blog, “Starting April 21, we (Google) will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search…
  • Search Queries and Your SEO Strategy

    Cory Bosket
    19 Mar 2015 | 11:08 am
    Each and every day, over 3 billion searches are entered into Google search engine bars from all across the world. For the most part, believe it or not, each one of these billions of search queries can be separated into three categories of searches – navigational, informational and transactional. If you’re like most business owners or organization leaders, odds are that you have given very little thought to these search queries. With much of the search engine marketing world focused on keywords and topics, very little attention is paid to search queries and how they affect your website’s…

    Across the web, marketers and SEOs are abuzz with news that 2015 will be the year that the mobile web overtakes its desktop counterpart. For years, the marketing world has known that the mobile web would one day surpass desktop Internet usage, but most failed to realize just how large the mobile revolution would be.

  • 6 Steps to Writing Quality Content for SEO

    Cory Bosket
    20 Jan 2015 | 6:38 am
    While Google frowns upon those who write content for search engines only, it doesn’t mean that you can’t craft great content that is written both for users and Google. In 2015 and beyond, it’s important that you’re putting users and quality first if you hope to create good quality content on your site. If your content becomes good enough, you will quickly find out that you won’t even need to focus on SEO efforts. As Google’s algorithm becomes more complex, it’s going to do a better job of picking out content that is unique, compelling and interesting.  If you want to…

  • If Search Engines Had Tinder

    Joshua Titsworth
    20 Apr 2015 | 2:05 am
    If you read the most recent desktop search share report you’d know that Bing is up to 20% of the market share. While Google is still sitting at 64% it’s impressive to see Bing moving forward. While Yahoo hasn’t really done much it seems Google is getting “some” competition from Bing. And a little competition never hurt anyone right? So what does all of this have to do with Tinder? In all honesty? Not much. Users sort of “pick” what search engine they will “date” each time they use them. No matter the search engine each one gathers data (at some level) to learn a…

    15 Apr 2015 | 8:06 am
    Reddit, the front page of the Internet. If there’s one place you want to get visibility this is it. Sure a spot in the New York Times can generate a good buzz about your company but a link from Reddit on the front page has been known to actually crash sites from the amount of traffic it can generate. But not everyone is going to make it to the front page and blatant advertising/spam also won’t make it. Though ads do from time to time due to the sheer creativity of them. So we grabbed a few links that went hot this week and jotted some notes down as to why they may have gone viral. We…

    International growth is an important aspect of many business’ marketing strategies. Expanding your potential market beyond the borders of your business’s country of origin can be an exciting and fruitful process when done effectively.

    27 Mar 2015 | 8:35 am
    How We Combined Data, SEO, Paid, and Social for Client Success These days, it is vital to look at all digital channels when planning and executing a campaign for a client. For me, this has been a fun journey—I have had to set my SEO tendencies aside to look at data in a fresh way, and then figure out how to turn that information into effective results for my clients. It has not always been easy, but neither is true love, right? So here is how we started with a large dataset and, in the words of the immortal Nina Simone, turned it into “something wonderful.” But before I start gushing .

    My son’s first year in school is going pretty well, and because it’s time for me to do another post here at Vizion, I thought I’d follow my post about the ABCs of SEO with the ABCs of social media. Oh, and for the curious, my son does know his ABCs. A is for automation. While too much automation can be a bad thing, when your schedule gets too hectic it can be easy for forget to post and promote content. Setting your social feeds to post your blog content automatically can help cut back on the time you have to spend making sure your posts are being shared. Sure, you’ll need to reshare…

    A successful content marketing campaign can be broken down into three main stages: ideation, production, and promotion. To maximize your efforts, all three should build off each other by focusing on one common goal—creating content that will inspire your audience and compel them to share. Here we’ll walk you through the questions you need to ask yourself during the three phases in order to produce a campaign that will reach high levels of social traction.   1. What makes my target audience tick?

    Content marketing continues to grow in popularity among digital strategists, and that means rising above the noise is becoming even more difficult.

    Yesterday, I came across Gideon Lichfield’s post Dear PR person who just sent me a robo-pitch. The senior editor at Quartz gets bombarded with pitches so frequently that he set up a series of email filters automatically deleting the worst offenders.

    Today, it’s not enough for a brand to simply have a social network strategy. To be competitive, they have to use the platform in new and innovative ways. But they also need to remain focused on retaining followers. For brands, retention is especially crucial because followers are often direct consumers. For example, on Twitter, 72% of followers of a brand are more likely to purchase a product from them. So why do people start and stop following brands? BuzzStream and Fractl conducted a survey with more than 900 respondents to better understand why people unfollow brands in social…

    Hey there, folks! Hope Monday’s finding you well! Now, I’m certain you’ve all heard of batch writing - a content creation strategy that basically involves occasional marathon writing sessions as opposed to a more frequent routine. A few weeks back I wrote about Pamela Wilson’s Seven Lessons Learned From Three Years Of Content Creation. Today, I’d like to revisit that piece, focusing on another of the insights Wilson shared. See, she is herself a big proponent of batch writing: “The secret to stress-free content production - I’m convinced - is batching,” she writes. “Want to…

    Image Credit: Derek Gavey Today, as with last week, we’re going to be talking about bounce rate. This time, however, we’re refocusing things a bit. We’re going to examine how bounce rate comes into play on sites like Facebook - and how that in turn has ‘bounced back’ to impact marketing as a whole. Now, at this point, it is worth noting that social media doesn’t actually have a direct impact on search engine optimization, nor do links from social sites. With that in mind, they do still bring in a ton of traffic - so getting penalized for misleading practices while posting on them…

    Carter Bowles

    Okay, there are a lot of trip mines in this topic, so I'm going to need to be careful where I step. Let me quote something Erin Everhart recently said in a post at Search Engine Land: First, the easy one: Marketing is educating potential customers about your product or service and persuading them to buy it, so of course SEO is marketing, and it’s quickly becoming one of the biggest traffic-driving channels out there. If your organization doesn’t see the value of SEO or view it is an actual marketing tactic, either they need to change their viewpoint or you should find an organization…

  • Should I bid on my own PPC Brand Terms?

    Liam Waites
    13 Apr 2015 | 2:11 pm
    Bidding on your brand keywords is a common discussion, both with clients & between individual service teams. Opinions are always divided on the subject and it can be seen as a way of cheaply improving overall account performance, while adding no value to the site overall. But is it really worth paying for traffic that would most likely be secured organically? The highly controllable nature of paid advertising does hold some benefits and it should be a strong consideration for most accounts for that very reason. Here we take a look at other methods that are just as – if not more…

    I’ve heard the word “stories” being dropped around a lot in meetings lately. It’s a word that’s beginning to catch up with “let’s get this content to go viral”. Objectively speaking, I think that’s a fair need. All of us using our content to market our services, network and generate leads want for it to be received well and shared as widely as possible. But how do we get there? Is it enough to be quirky, creative, be tuned into pop-culture and have a great foundation in the liberal arts?

    One of the best ways to build trust with prospective customers is with good web design. It can no longer be argued that a website’s design is and will continue to be one of the most influencing aspects on a customer’s initial opinion of a company. Studies show that just updating the design to make it look more modern can increase conversion rates by upwards of 33%. Split testing something as small as the image or headline can make your visitors 2x-3x more likely to convert into a customer. But good web design that establishes trust goes beyond even gaining new customers. For instance,…

  • How Shopping Comparison Sites Use Tribal Content to Boost Brand Marketing

    Lyndon Antcliff
    2 Apr 2015 | 1:55 am
    Tribal content is content targeted at specific tribes or sub-cultures and promoted to them for the purposes of increasing the power of the brand. Which usually means links and social signals.   We know that Google still likes links, and that it does take notice of the data generated on social media, but more importantly, I think it likes the Brand more and more.   When I talk about Google increasingly considering brand as a factor of ranking, I don’t mean they have a knob on the “Google Algo Dashboard”, that says “BRAND”, and they are turning it up to 11.   I mean…

    It’s that time of day again: you’ve just eaten lunch and you’re back at your desk. The office is almost empty; the only other sign of life is that guy who won’t stop humming “Don’t Stop Believing.” You turn on your monitor and a flood of emails storm your inbox, including one from your boss asking for that Powerpoint presentation you hoped she would forget about. The promise you made yourself earlier that morning to finally finish that monthly report seems more far fetched than ever, and you hate yourself for eating that second Crunchwrap Supreme.

    In the age of information, consumers rely on online reviews in order to make purchasing decisions. Healthcare decisions are no exception. In order to determine the reputation of potential healthcare providers, patients look at online reviews to ensure their doctor is not only the best qualified but also provides an excellent bed-side manner. The better review your practice receives, the greater the opportunity to convince a potential patient he or she should choose you as their provider. Healthcare reviews exist not only on Google+ but many provider-specific review sites such as ZocDoc,…

    Katie O’Neill
    29 Mar 2015 | 2:03 pm
    The benefits of a blog, for content marketing and SEO, have long been understood and appreciated by online marketers. The extra word count gives you lots of room for keyword development and creating useful content generates organic links. Another crucial way you can use your blog is to drive conversions themselves. Using a blog as a sales tool is a tricky business. If readers sense the intent is not for their benefit, they’re likely to disregard the blog as an authority entirely. However, if you manage to strike the right balance, it’s a great way of getting engaged readers to…

    Here at Avatar we see this happen again and again – a new site gets designed but all the on-page search engine optimisation (SEO) work gets wiped out by the new designer who is more fixated on how cool the new site looks. Many web designers don’t know much about SEO at all, or it’s simply not a main part of their business so they don’t include it in their site revamp processes. SEO is something that takes time to build up, so this can throw away months or even years of hard work.

    The SEO industry has traditionally relied heavily on data, provable results and historical data. For good reason. This information can be used to make predictions and calculations as well as demonstrate results to clients and illustrate why certain SEO techniques are effective or important. However, this doesn’t account for search engine results entirely. It is becoming more apparent that there’s a factor that’s much harder to quantify. That factor is engagement. There are two main kinds of engagement to consider. The first is onsite engagement – these areas have been…
  • Preventing Pogo-Sticking On Your Website

    Katie O’Neill
    8 Feb 2015 | 2:04 pm
    Pogo-sticking refers to searchers clicking through to a website, from the search engine results page, then quickly clicking back. It indicates to search engines, like Google and Bing, that the searcher was not happy with the site they clicked on. It’s a frustrating experience for searchers and, therefore, something search engines want to avoid as much as possible. If your website is one of the websites that users pogo stick away from, this sends a signal to search engines that you don’t deserve the top spot in the rankings. The main cause of pogo-sticking is a website that is…

    Ever wanted to learn a special skill? You can begin by picking up books from the shelf and reading. Or you can simply turn to Google and try to read something created for dummies. The last option is to attend a practical training class where you can be taught directly the tricks and tips of the trade. Way back, about 7 years ago, I decided I wanted to learn French. Granted I am a sucker for learning new things.  Even though French was not on my country’s list of even a third foreign language, I was still intrigued enough to try and understand how the French people speaks. By the way,…

This is because people will buy from you when they can trust you and building a great social media presence is another way you can build trust with your customers. While SEO and Email are beautiful ways to start, social media selling can not be overlooked. The greater challenge is then how to get started. Should you follow everyone that follows you back.

    Back on February 26th, 2015, Google gave marketers an incredible insight into the changes they have planned for their search algorithms, along with the exact day that these changes will go into effect.

The first major spike that was noticed was on thanksgiving over in American, or for the UK based readers, November 27th. This was then confirmed by Google, followed by another update which seemed to roll back some of the results.

  • What Is Pay-Per-Click (PPC)?

    Doug Lang
    20 Apr 2015 | 8:35 am
    Pay-per-click, or it’s more popular abbreviation PPC, is a form of sponsored internet marketing in which advertisers only pay when one of their ads is clicked. It is a great way to generate traffic to your website, and works best for a highly targeted audience for a limited amount of time. However, if not done properly, it can be a vacuum for advertising budgets. If poorly managed, you could spend a ton of money for a ton of visits, but very few sales. So, for every yin there’s a yang. As with everything, there is both good and bad to PPC advertising – we’ll look at both.

It shows you how to get content indexed by Google: Pages on your site Pages on other sites that you’ve built links on Why is this important? The first is obvious. More content indexed = more traffic.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise. Stop what you’re doing and look around – how many people are glued to their phones? Smart phones are extensions of our bodies. Why the hell would your website not be mobile friendly? Google’s #1 priority is increasing the user experience. They’re done sending users to a non mobile friendly website.

    Let’s start with the obvious: To make maximum sales, you need to target and reach people who will buy what you’re selling. And obviously you need to give customers what they want. However, a popular DIY method of going after online sales is to ignore those concepts and instead just throw some marketing at the wall and see which parts of it – if any – stick. Probably not the best strategy. More proactively, putting together a Customer Acquisition Plan is a smart move.

    Neil Patel
    20 Apr 2015 | 8:00 am
    Do you use Instagram? If you do, you probably notice a ton of pictures of half-naked models. Most people react negatively to these images; for example, they think that these models have nothing going for them other than their looks.
