    WordPress is the content management system (CMS) of choice for approximately 18.9% of websites across the web. This means that there are around 74,652,825 sites, including our own that use it. When you consider that 70% of sites in the world don’t use any CMS at all, it’s an even more astonishing figure. That isn’t just a random number I’ve pulled out of nowhere either; WordPress is the most commonly used CMS currently in existence, and guess what, it’s open source! Open source means anyone can create anything for WordPress sites, so at the tip of your fingers, you have thousands of…

    Yesterday Google shared they see greater mobile than desktop search volumes in 10 countries including Japan and the United States. 3 years ago RKG shared CTR data which highlighted how mobile search ads were getting over double the CTR as desktop search ads. The basic formula: less screen real estate = higher proportion of user clicks on ads. Google made a big deal of their "mobilepocalypse" update to scare other webmasters into making their sites mobile friendly. Part of the goal of making sites "mobile friendly" is to ensure it isn't too ad dense (which in turn lowers accidental ad clicks…
  • Google Mobilepocalypse Update

    Aaron Wall
    22 Apr 2015 | 7:27 am
    A day after the alleged major update, I thought it would make sense to highlight where we are at in the cycle. Yesterday Google suggested their fear messaging caused 4.7% of webmasters to move over to mobile friendly design since the update was originally announced a few months ago. The 4.7% of the websites Google pushed to go mobile friendly likely include some sites which would have been mobile friendly anyhow by virtue of being new sites on hosted platforms with responsive designs. But for the rest of the sites, was the shift worth it? That is a tough question. It is too early to tell.

    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.

And so, all of the sudden, this pure network of sorts became a place for marketers, as they always do, to capitalize upon. In the beginning, a core group of social media marketers were making waves on sites that have since shut down, creating the foundation for social media marketing as we see it today.

The low. medium, and high are based on the competitiveness of a keyword among paid search advertisers. The more advertisers are bidding on a keyword, the higher the competitiveness. By itself, paid search competitiveness tells you nothing about the organic search competitiveness, but in reality they usually run about the same. So, most people ask the same thing about keywords: "Should I stay away from highly competitive keywords?"Like any good…

  • Google Finally Announces Use of Google Local Reviews in Adwords

    Mike Blumenthal
    2 Jul 2015 | 6:16 am
    Google has finally acknowledged publicly that they were now adding Google Local reviews to Adword ads that use Location Extensions. These were seen in the wild starting several weeks ago. These reviews can be seen instead of seller ratings from 3rd party sites. Previously it was only possible to get Google Local review stars if you were using AdWords Express. Typically they would show if you had at least 3.5 stars and some minimum number of reviews. In the case of seller ratings that number is 30, I am not sure how many are required to show the Google Local review in Adwords. Here is the…

Google Maps was first rolled out in February of 2005 and  started their StreetView program in May, 2007 in  only five cities (Denver, Las Vegas, Miami, New York and San Francisco). By October, 2009 Google had replaced TeleAtlas ( having switched from Navteq a year earlier) as their data supplier in the US with their own base map and road geometry data from StreetView.

  • Have you been hit by a panda or penguin?

    2 Feb 2015 | 10:45 pm
    Yes, as the subject line suggests, there are thousands of businesses suffering months and even years later from the dreaded Panda and Penguin updates. Many people we speak with talk as if it is their destiny to never get that pre-update traffic and visibility back in Google. NOT SO FAST!!!! When affected by algorithm updates, it is important to be able to identify which updates were the culprit. It simply is not enough to say “it was Panda” or “Penguin hit us.” OK, which one???? Ask yourself or the members on your team this: What is the difference between Panda 2.5 and…
  • 2015 Online Marketing Predictions

    9 Jan 2015 | 10:22 pm
    The Spartan Project will increase Bing’s market share. Well it’s about time Microsoft got a new browser! When was the last time someone willingly used Internet Explorer? I know people use it (58% in fact), but I get the feeling it’s just from being the default on PCs, right? With a new “lightweight” browser, Microsoft hopes users actually choose Spartan. And they have the opportunity for Spartan (or whatever they call it) to lead users to use Bing instead of Google. Right now Bing has only 19% of the search traffic. Let’s see if they can get that up to 25% by year end. Google Plus…

    You Can’t Be Serious? Let’s face it, times have changed and what worked yesterday has no guarantee of remaining relevant and working tomorrow. What most of us often overlook is that as the web evolves so does our nervous system and how it maps the priorities of how we communicate. Essentially, we develop blinders to keep us sane from information overload. Just like banner blindness is real, your ads, links, headlines, images and everything else needs to be more human than ever and have a more down to earth appeal vs. I’m selling you something (as if you don’t know it)…

    What’s up guys, it’s Matt the Intern. My boss explained this concept to me:  HIPPO (Highest paid person's opinion).The saying is, “It’s not about what the HIPPO thinks”.  This means that if you're in control of a project you can’t always make the decisions that are based on what you ‘think’ but instead, take other people’s opinions into account. Today I learned an important lesson on how people function differently.

    For the better part of 2014 (or really, ALL of 2014), Yahoo! Mail has seen repeated hacks of epic proportions. It all started back in early January when users started experiencing hacked email accounts, and it doesn't seem to have dwindled one bit. Security holes were made public by a single YouTube user as early as January 7th, but Yahoo! has since claimed that all breaches have been since patched, but that doesn't seem to be the case.Speaking on a personal level, I made the switch to Gmail in 2006. Yahoo! Mail served me well over the years, but a clunky UI and slow servers turned me away in…

    Even after these past few years, the phrase, “Google Penalty,” has a way of stopping one in their tracks as if frozen. Not everyone is affected that way, but it is still common enough. It is a similar reaction that some people have over the mention of going to the dentist. That fear has subsided for some. As people gain knowledge about the penalties and the process of penalty removal, the fear begins to dissipate.

    Google is currently the leading search engine for mobile sites, with more than 90% of the market share. Their decision to concentrate upon mobile accessibility sometimes works to the detriment of their traditional PC-based market. Until recently, many Google website owners had sites which were focused upon the PC user, rather than upon mobile devices, but with Google’s decision to require mobile-friendly websites from its users, websites owners are now facing a choice: ignore the new directive, and risk sliding down the search engine rankings, or obey the directive, and try to make your…

    It’s pretty common knowledge that a good review from your customer is going to have a positive effect on your web visibility.  Clearly those map listings that, in addition to  the standard information also show a star rating, are more than likely to get a better click through rate. Note the screen shot below. Which two reviews are going to catch your eye?  But there’s more to the power and value of a review than just click through rates.

    How to set up your lead generation program. Many sales consultants and sales coaching firms talk about the 5 to 7 numbers you need to understand to grow your business.  In every case they start with the number of leads you will need,  and then move to how many you need to covert to customers, and then average revenue per customer… so on and so on. These 5 or 7 numbers are all based on  missing elements!

This is Important! >>>>> Like so many things in business (and life) selling and buying are cyclical. Most industries buy during certain time periods, and sell during certain time periods. Generally they will buy right before they start their sales season, or right after.

In fact, search engines have become so highly keyword-centric that many businesses today consult keyword research and SEO specialists to identify the best keywords for optimizing a particular website. Once the best keywords have been identified, SEO specialists then update the website to reflect the prominence of these keywords in both the page’s html tags and its web content (text elements).  These updates are implemented by SEO specialists to make search engines rank the…

    If you’re a brand and you aren’t using Twitter, I have to ask, why not? The majority of businesses have already jumped on Twitter because it is a free channel to promote their business and connect with their customers. Twitter has 100 million active daily users, which means there is a huge engaged audience out there that you could be putting your products or services in front of. The majority of brands have already opened a Twitter account but many are still viewing Twitter as an advertising platform. They don’t aim to engage, but rather to sell.

    It’s been a few weeks since Google rolled out its mobile-friendly algorithm, aptly dubbed ‘Mobilegeddon’. The algorithm, designed to improve the mobile browsing experience, has boosted traffic for ‘mobile-friendly’ websites, while penalising those that aren’t optimised for mobile devices. Google has been concerned with mobile-friendly content for a while now, but, until recently, most searches were still conducted from desktop devices. Back in February  Google announced that it was focused on bettering its service for the growing number of mobile users with a mobile friendly…

    It’s not the first time I hear someone say that business owners outsource work because they are lazy; they don’t want to put in the effort; they don’t care about delivering high-quality products or services. Reality contradicts every single one of those claims. Let me explain. Business owners who outsource are in fact very energetic and hard-working. They outsource because they want to achieve so many things, reach goals so important that they have to lengthen their day, to expand time. So far, science didn’t come up with a solution for this, so those business owners…

Yes, remote work is here to stay and professionals act like it.

  • Why You Should Learn JSON-LD & Separate Your Data from Your Markup

    For years and years, web developers have been taught to separate presentation from structure. Your HTML (the Markup) should be separate from your CSS (the presentation) and so on. That’s why I’m an advocate of placing your data in a JSON-LD payload; rather than including data inside the HTML Mark-up. I’d argue this is a really important point for marketers to understand but I’m not sure everyone’s quite convinced yet. So, I thought I’d share 6 compelling points to support my argument.

  • Is the Résumé Still Relevant?

    Jackson Stevens
    29 Jun 2015 | 9:56 am
    My résumé did not lead me to my current position at Commerce Kitchen. In reality, my résumé has done nothing for me. Two years ago, I envisioned a game plan to transition from arts nonprofit fundraising to tech for-profit business development. My hunch at the time was that in order for me to successfully land a biz dev position in the tech field, I was going to have to find a champion to go to bat for me during the hiring process. Now, speaking from experience, I found that hunch to be accurate. Exhibit A Last year, in a moment of unshakable dissatisfaction with my current job, I decided…

    A New School Model: Architecture for the future of now Last time, I spoke to the shortcomings of current education as I see them. I briefly discussed a landscape of ideas for a new system, one that changes the paradigms. Adding dimension to the learning experience through a culture of mentorship, professional practice, and agility. This time, let’s start to dig into some of the details, take a look below the surface, and begin to understand the structure of this new model. I like to refer to this model as Agile Education. I take this name from the world of engineering, most specifically…

    What is improvisation? The question likely provokes several answers with varying degrees of detail. Most initial responses will likely center around some version of music, be it jazz, JS Bach, Mozart, or many current professionals. Actors and comedians will probably have a strong showing also. Note, they’re all performers. But is improvisation really a talent that belongs only to those on the stage? Maybe. But I’d also go to Shakespeare and counter with “All the world’s stage, and all the men and women merely players.” This is a blog post on my company’s website. It’s only…

Over time, I have developed a unique understanding of our current position as a race and culture in America and how it is related to our system of learning. I have designed this through a convergence of experiences and skills, spanning three careers in four fields: engineering, science, teaching, and technology. I have the unlikely benefit of holding four higher education degrees, earned across a…

  • Is Click Through Rate A Ranking Signal?

    AJ Kohn
    24 Jun 2015 | 4:35 pm
    Are click through rates on search results a ranking signal? The idea is that if the third result on a page is clicked more often than the first that it will, over time, rise to the second or first result. I remember this question being asked numerous times when I was just starting out in the industry. Google representatives employed a potent combination of tap dancing and hand waving when asked directly. They were so good at doing this that we stopped hounding them and over the last few years I rarely hear people talking about, let alone asking, this question. Perhaps it’s because…

    It has been 267 days since the last Panda update. That’s 8 months and 25 days. Where’s My Panda Update? Obviously I’m a bit annoyed that there hasn’t been a Panda update in so long because I have a handful of clients who might (fingers crossed) benefit from having it deployed. They were hit and they’ve done a great deal of work cleaning up their sites so that they might get back into Google’s good graces. I’m not whining about it (much). That’s the way the cookie crumbles and that’s what you get when you rely on Google for a material…
  • Why Growth Hacking Works

    AJ Kohn
    12 Apr 2015 | 12:16 pm
    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. We’re forever repackaging and rebranding, even when it comes to our own profession. Can you blame us really? We’re frequently the last ones to get the credit and the first ones to get the blame and corresponding pink slip. Nevertheless these redefinitions often induce a sigh and eye-roll from yours truly. Do we really have to go through all this again? Perhaps I’m just cranky and getting old. Sean…

    (This post has been updated so make sure you read all the way to the bottom.) Are non-linking URLs (pasted URLs) seen as links by Google? There’s long been chatter and rumor that they do among various members of the SEO community. I found something the other day that seems to confirm this.

    Do you know that 70% of ‘this is spam’ complaints are marketing emails? That’s a big number! And it’s terrifying to know that a big chunk of our marketing failure is all from email marketing. For some people, email marketing is the best way to go, while for some, it can be so hard and frustrating that they would rather adopt other marketing strategies. But before you do that, why don’t you analyze your marketing email first? Maybe you’re not really that unfortunate, and it’s just how you craft your emails that makes it so awful nobody wants to open it. So, without further ado,…

One thing is sure though, getting a Long Click is never easy, and it absolutely requires time and patience. It’s great that there are tons of tools to help improve Dwell Time – but note that these don’t guarantee a Long Click for your website or webpages. However, it will definitely…

Knowing that Google sneaked in the Phantom 2 update (which became known as the “Quality Update“) to their core algorithm right when they launched the highly-awaited, “Mobile-geddon”, this untold SEO secret has become even more important.

    A groundbreaking new study promises to take all the guesswork out of Twitter, guaranteeing you maximum reach and engagement every time. When it comes to Twitter, there are certain myths that refuse to die. One of the most enduring myths is that, for best results, you need to dedicate hours of your time every single day to getting your message out there. Mastering any social media platform is certainly a time-consuming process. However, an indiscriminate, round the clock approach to tweeting will get you nowhere, and will only leave you feeling burned out and disillusioned. It’s much…

My theory was that Google had noticed that lots of people besides professional webmasters were using those tools, and sure enough, that’s exactly how they’ve explained the new tools. However, they’re also making updates frequently, including some new tools for apps. If you haven’t tried the Search Console yet, come along on a quick…

    Retailers don’t like to admit it, but we’ve all see people checking Amazon reviews in store aisles as they decide whether or not to buy. Nielsen reported last year that 85% of consumers trust and are influenced by expert reviews of products. The year before, they found that consumer reviews had the highest trust value — equal to recommendations from friends and family — and their study last year confirmed that reviews by people who actually used the product were still highly trusted. There’s no comparable report out for 2015 yet, but it would be surprising if…

    Unless your work is in SEO, digital marketing, or the like, listening to someone talk about search engine optimization can sometimes be like listening to someone speak in a foreign language. You may occasionally hear a word that you recognize, but for the most part you have no idea what that person is saying. You recognize a question by the inflection of their voice, and respond by slowly nodding your head and masking your bewilderment with a blank stare. Nearly every profession has specialized language, so there’s no reason to be embarrassed when you don’t understand the jargon.

    Digital press releases inform clients, customers and the media of new product launches, awards and news that any company has been involved with. They are an essential part of any content marketing strategy, but in order for your brand’s voice to be heard they have to be written correctly. The PR and content teams here at Digital Next see a huge number of press releases being written and published every week, but it’s not always easy to judge whether your work is well written – so the eventual outcome might not actually be what’s best for the client.

    Google Analytics has 1000’s of different views and combinations of metrics that a user can look at and drill down into. When we use analytics to report, we generally look for some simple views that provide strong data signals such as, top landing pages, what device has been used and what drives the conversions. Reporting on this is simple enough, but for most people this means looking at various different views and reports. More recently, we have started to look at what can be viewed as a one stop shop to view all of your website data and performance on one page. The ultimate analytics page…

    Since the turn of the year, Google Analytics accounts across the world have been hammered with electronic spam. Although in the past I have spoken about how to stop Ghost referral spam, this method is no longer the answer to stopping all forms of spamming techniques. Ghost referral spam has caused many accounts to track ‘fake visits’ to your website from nuisance websites, which were viewable in the referrals section of Google Analytics after drilling down into visitor data. These irritant sites were spamming other websites either as a form of lead generation, or as a way to…

    I understand you, marketers. You want to be engaging, exciting, hopefully funny, and make your content go viral by sheer force of your own awesomeness. But the content that gets popular is the content that isn’t forced.

    Event tracking is one of the most powerful features in Google Analytics. It enables you to better understand how users are interacting with your website and use that data to improve the conversion percentage for many of your target KPIs. I wrote an article last year about setting up event tracking for Marketo Landing Pages that’s got some useful info about concepts like naming conventions, so check it out if you’re unfamiliar. With the update to the analytics.js library though, Google has changed the syntax of the event tracking code, so I thought it was a good time to revisit the topic…

    Many people who are just starting out with social media marketing mistakenly believe that their experience with their own personal accounts is all they need to start using various platforms to further their business’s goals. Unfortunately, that’s not the case at all. Much like any other aspect of your marketing strategy, social media requires planning.

    Just a few years ago, blogs, article pages, and other non-promotional site content were seen as frivolous extras only created by overachieving marketers and business owners. In 2015, however, content is one of the most popular (and effective) forms of marketing. Creating and publishing content is an inexpensive process thanks to the Internet, and can be done almost entirely for free if you take the time to write it yourself. That being said, the fact that it isn’t a huge financial investment doesn’t mean you should allow yourself to be careless. Content marketing is only effective if you…

    As any Internet marketer will tell you, SEO is difficult to explain. Optimization is a complicated process, and it’s not exactly easy to put into words for someone completely unfamiliar with it — and there are a lot of unfamiliar people out there. Even with SEO’s surge in popularity over the past years, very few outside of the industry know what SEOs do on a daily basis. The short answer is: a lot. However, that doesn’t fully answer the question. In general, SEOs work to make websites more visible and profitable online. And while that may sound vague, it’s only because SEO is…

    For years now, there has been much discussion on the role of social signals and its impact on SEO. So what’s the reasoning behind all the debate? Well, back in 2010, Google Webmaster Extraordinaire Matt Cutts confirmed that social signals were, in fact, one of the metrics used in the page ranking algorithm. However, in early 2014 Cutts went against his previous claim and announced that social signals were no longer being used as a ranking factor in search engine results. With social signals appearing to be dead in the water, it comes as no surprise that many brand managers were shocked to…

    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…

As these individuals reach out to the world of digital marketing professionals to make their content headaches go away, agencies are presented with the perfect opportunity for new business.

    Have you ever found yourself recommending a particular tool and realize pretty much no one has ever heard of it or has used it as consistently as you have? I totally feel that way about OneTab. OneTab is an extension for Chrome and the simplest way to describe what it does is this: Import a list of URLs into OneTab and the extension will open them all at once Export a list of open tabs from OneTab and paste them into Excel or another document So why do these functions make OneTab so wonderful?

    Andrea Lehr
    1 Jul 2015 | 6:00 am
    Influencers spend most of their time in their inboxes sifting through lots and lots of emails. This takes time, and no matter who the influencer is, there is one guarantee: They’re always short of it. When you email influencers prodding them to take a look at your latest campaign, you’re asking for their most precious commodity – time. And it isn’t something most are willing to give away easily, so your pitch approach means the difference between no response, a response, and the ultimate goal: a placement. Here, we’ll walk you through a comprehensive guide – featuring 30 surefire…

Even though the field is timeless, it’s also one that evolves constantly thanks to new social media channels and communication mediums. As a result, PR leaders have to wade through lots of noise.

    There are many goals for a content marketing campaign, including to maximize exposure, increase brand awareness, and initiate a conversation with your target audience. Whatever your end goal, an essential element for any successful campaign is a targeted promotions cycle – and the key ingredient in that strategy is earned media.

    As I established in a previous piece, everyone’s creative process is a little bit different. I’m a night owl, myself – I do my best work to music when most decent people are asleep. Figuring out your own unique approach to content creation is vital if you’re to succeed. That isn’t the only thing you need to do to be an effective creator, however. In addition to understanding how you create, you also need to establish an ironclad process for you to follow when you create.

    Carter Bowles

    In my last post, I kicked off a 7 part series to examine 7 of the most influential factors on internet popularity. The series was inspired by my post on The Novelty Bubble, a term I coined to describe the confluence of brain quirks and algorithms that limit our view of the world to that which is shocking, controversial, awe-inspiring, counterintuitive, and novel, often at the expense of accuracy. Playing into this is the rise of celebrity culture on the internet. Both stories about celebrities and content shared by celebrities play a vital part in what becomes popular on the internet, and if…

The other is well above average, but much less talented than his peer. You’d expect that the first musician will be the more successful of the two, right? You’d be wrong. The former musician only plies his craft within the walls of his home. Though his friends and family speak highly of him, he’s unknown in the larger world. The latter, meanwhile, does everything he can to get his name out. He regularly performs in public and…

    If Twitter was ever going to go under, users of the social network would almost certainly beat the company in breaking the news. This irony is representative of the struggles Twitter faces as it tries to define (or redefine) itself. The recent announcement that Twitter CEO Dick Costolo would be stepping down at the end of the month is being trumpeted as a pivotal point for the struggling social media giant, a moment that many saw coming and some even called for. Twitter has battled slow user growth, a disappointing earnings report that was only made worse by being announced early on Twitter,…

    Amidst all the hubbub and buzz generated by Apple’s worldwide developer conference on June 8, one very interesting tidbit stands out. According to documentation released for iOS 9 after the conference’s end, Safari will soon include functionality that allows developers to block “cookies, images, resources, pop-ups, and other content.” In other words, Apple has all but officially thrown its support behind ad blocking. The reason this is big news is that, until recently, mobile advertising was a relatively untouched market. As of 2014, the prevalence of ad-blocking was…

  • How Local SEO Works

    Dan Scalco
    9 Jun 2015 | 5:35 am
    If you’re a business owner, you’ve probably heard about the importance of investing in Local SEO. Seeing as 50% of searches (on mobile devices) are done to find local results and 61% of those searches result in a purchase (source). Local SEO is nothing to scoff at. It doesn’t just increase traffic to your website, it increases targeted traffic. What do I mean by this? Well, there’s a big difference in a searchers behavior when searching “home security” and “home security miami”. The former is a very broad search whereby the user could just be looking for general…

  • What Does Psychology Have to Do with Creating Engaging Headlines?

    4 Dec 2014 | 4:03 pm
    According to Copyblogger, 8 of 10 people read your headline. But only 2 out of 10 will continue on and read the rest of your content. Headlines matter. And most of us know this. That’s why there are countless articles and copywriting how-tos that explain what words work, which don’t, and how you can use them to get more of those 10 people to click and read what you have to say. But why? Why does this word work when that one doesn’t? Why do certain tactics fail while others succeed — and why, as copywriters or content creators, is it often so hard to understand what made the…

    Not so long ago, search engine optimization had a predominantly technical focus, with an emphasis on targeted keywords, canonical tags, site maps, link building…you get the idea. Don’t get me wrong, the technical aspects of SEO are still vital components of a successful digital marketing campaign. However, search engines (and the people who use them) have become more sophisticated. SEOs have had to learn to balance the human equation with the needs of the robot.

On average, five times as many people read the headline as read the body copy. When you have written your headline, you have spent eighty cents…

We have been working specifically with content marketing for the past 8 years and if there is something we have learned during this time, is that the difference between those that succeed and those that fail is NOT based on the quantity of resources they are able to invest (money/budget). It is in the clarity in which they define “why” they want to engage in content marketing. In this…

    27 May 2015 | 1:17 pm
    Measuring your marketing efforts effectively takes more than simply getting monthly reports on your website’s performance. A recent survey by ITSMA found that marketers generally aren’t measuring the things top executives care about, with the result that the C-Suite typically doesn’t use marketing data to inform business decisions. You can change that today, by implementing approaches that will help you to measure marketing outcomes effectively and develop intelligence that supports your business strategy.

    It’s happened plenty of times: you’ve been out all day, and it’s too late to cook—so you look up nearby restaurants from your phone. After you finally get everyone to agree on a destination, you arrive to find the place is closed. With frustration (and hunger) welling up inside of you, you take off to give your business to another restaurant, vowing never to return.But if you haven’t updated your Google Places listing, your customers could be shaking their fists at your closed doors—and telling their friends about the experience.Google Maps’ Real-Time…

    14 Jun 2015 | 10:00 pm
    The dash is the chameleon of punctuation—extraordinarily versatile and quick to substitute for other typographical marks. “And yet it’s just a simple horizontal line,” people tell me. “I don’t need any instruction on how to use that.”I disagree. Using the dash isn’t quite as simple as writers believe, so a little instruction—or a refresher course, for those who still retain a smattering of seventh grade English lessons—will do us all a world of good.Yes, But WHICH Dash?We’re overstepping ourselves a little by talking about…

      Finding who is influential is crucial for promotion in any content publishing strategy. There are many ways to figure out who is influential and who is not, the trick is not to rely on one source but to steep yourself in the niche and those who are influential will become self-evident.   It is important when you set about creating content that you know and understand the audience which the content should be for. Rather than producing broad content that tries to please as many people as possible, it is more effective to focus on a specific group of people. Even targeting just one…

    Wikipedia is not only one of the most reputable online encyclopedias, it can also be one of the most reputable link sources in terms of SEO. Caution is warranted though, because a very interesting paradox is at play here: the less Wikipedia is being used for SEO, the more credible and valuable it is as a link source. Furthermore, the more credible and valuable it is, the more appealing it becomes. But be aware: if you are now rushing to the crowd-sourced encyclopedia to insert your links in every article you can get your hands on, you will be hurting both Wikipedia and yourself. Why Can…

                                   For a small business owner, mobile marketing may seem like a daunting, costly or time-consuming task. You may rely on a mobile phone and mobile apps to conduct business, but may not market or advertise your business to a mobile-first audience. The truth is, if you’re not creating a mobile marketing plan, then your business loses out on the majority of U.S. consumers. According to Google, more searches come from mobile phones than laptops or desktops. Thankfully, you don’t have to sacrifice time and resources to tap into the mobile market.

    One of the dangers of such a comprehensive data gathering tool as Google Analytics is overwhelming yourself and your clients with useless, excessive information. There are so many metrics to measure with so many possible variations that it is easy to become lost. To help navigate this, GA provides a default dashboard and reports intended to give a general overview of the site, which they do.

    Apple’s new custom font ‘San Francisco’ Why are fonts important? Font choice is one, if not the most important decision in design.

When you bring in responsive design and multiple sizes of the same element, font choice becomes even more critical.
