    Did you recently receive an email from Google Search Console that Googlebot cannot access CSS and JS files on your site? Many webmasters (including myself) are reporting that they received the message, causing a flurry of forum posts and messages. While some people seemed panicked at first, this notice doesn’t mean that they can’t see your site; only parts of it can’t be accessed. While there isn’t a reason to sound the alarm, we do want to always be as “Google Friendly” with websites to help gain organic exposure. Screenshot of email from Google finding…

  • Google Patents Click-Through Feedback on Search Results to Improve Rankings

    Bill Slawski
    31 Jul 2015 | 11:44 am
    I was excited to see a Google Patent granted this past Thursday, which describes how Google may rank pages in part based upon user feedback (clicks) in response to rankings for those pages. The patent tells us that this kind of identifying of a user’s needs and determining which documents are returned that might be most useful to a searcher can involve “a fair amount of mind-reading—inferring from various clues what the user wants.” But, we’ve been told recently by a Google Spokesperson that such clues can be misleading.

A few years back in 2007, I wrote about a Google patent for Agent Rank, which described reputation scores for authors (to be used as an alternative to PageRank), and looked like an important part of Google’s social network, Google+. It was referred to in the patent as “Agent Rank” and people commenting upon it started referring to it as “Author Rank”. It seemed like it was a good description of how some people…

    From the query, ‘How to fix a clogged sink.’ This patent application from last week describes a search system query processing for queries that are questions. Queries may be responded to with a wide variety of resources, such as image files, audio files, video files, and web pages. A search engine may identify resources in response to queries submitted by searchers and attempt to provide information in response “in a manner that is useful to the users.” Searchers may look for an answer to a specific question, rather than a listing of links to other pages and resources.

My mini AdWords audit was well-received and the California software company representative I was dealing with had just sent me an email titled: “Can you begin effective tomorrow?”.  They had accepted my retainer proposal and agreed to hire me for a three month trial. I sent off my first invoice and was pleasantly surprised when it was paid online within the…
  • 30 Days as Geek For Hire – Day 8: Opportunity Knocks

    Kalena Jordan
    22 Jul 2015 | 3:56 pm
    Today began with a promising email. My freelance profile on Elance had been viewed by a software company based in California and I’d been invited to pitch for a large AdWords management project. After requesting review access to their AdWords account and their Analytics, I could immediately see glaring issues that had been preventing the various campaigns from achieving profitability via AdWords. What a mess! But I knew I could easily add value with even the barest of account tweaks, so I prepared a mini audit and made my case via email. Next, I headed over to the UpWork Community Forum…

  • 30 Days as Geek For Hire – Day 7: Fresh Potential

    Kalena Jordan
    19 Jul 2015 | 2:26 pm
    Day 7 started with no news on my UpWork applications. In the meantime, I had been hearing excitable rumblings about a local New Zealand-based start-up called Yudoozy and I decided to check it out. Yudoozy might be a dumb name, but it has a smart approach. It’s a freelancer marketplace that connects freelancers and potential employers, but that is where the similarity to Elance ends. For starters, it’s only open to New Zealand residents and there are no cut-throat bidding wars for jobs. Employers actively seek out suitable freelancers by perusing the directory of talent and skills…

  • Sitecore pushes higher in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for WCM

    A couple of years ago, I wrote a post highlighting Sitecore as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content for the fourth year running, which at the time was very impressive. To read the latest report from Gartner and see that Sitecore has moved even higher in its ability to execute against its vision is absolutely outstanding. For anyone that doesn’t know, Magic Quadrants are a visual process to compare and rate objects against each other. The higher and further to the right the object gets in in the results, the better.

    When the guys over at asked me to contribute an “SEO myth” to what ended up as an awesome blog post, I went with the following: Design for users and the rest will follow. Let me explain. SEO used to look very different. In my experience it is easier to get buy in for SEO now than ever before – despite (not provided), Penguin, Panda and the constant proclamations that “SEO is dead” – because we’ve finally convinced the rest of the marketing industry that SEO is just good marketing. In a way, though, we’ve created a rod for our own backs. If you read blogs from the…

  • How content appeals to our inner narcissist

    Meg Tapp

    Generally speaking, the most shareable content lets us indirectly speak about ourselves. From quizzes showing off just how much we really know about that big film franchise, to a list of things you would only know if you grew up in a certain place, content relating directly to a specific type of person or interest allows you to indulge in a bit of online narcissism. So what does this mean for the future of content?

    Mark Traphagen
    4 Aug 2015 | 7:54 am
    Hiring a digital marketing agency can be a major investment of any company’s limited marketing budget. Is it worth it?  According to a research report from the Society of Digital Agencies the percentage of companies not using outside digital marketing agencies at all rose significantly over last year (27% in 2015, compared to 13% in 2014). Many of those companies that do still use DMAs shrank the number they engage. In 2014, 21% of those companies employed four or more DMAs; in 2015 that’s down to 13%.

    Eric Enge
    3 Aug 2015 | 9:00 am
    With Google’s crackdown on link spam, many sites have become fearful of linking to any external content. Too many people were succumbing to the temptation to try to game their link profiles to artificially appear more authoritative than they should be. So Google had to do something to clean that up. The unfortunate side effect of that is now many sites have cut back on or even stopped altogether linking out to other sites. Is that a warranted reaction to Google’s actions?

    30 Jul 2015 | 11:45 am
    Some of these comments really “get my goat”!

When I see the notice below it tells me that the advertiser is bidding too aggressively and paying too much per click. Many…

Because they are taking more and more market share away from niche, single-store eCommerce sites and are stacking up the reasons why consumers should go nowhere else. There are several rules that Amazon has created that have set a new norm in certain policies. Try and fight them and you will lose. If you are in a situation where you can change your business model so that you can comply with them, you stand a far greater chance of making it in this Amazon dominated…

Today I learned about the difference between free content with or without an email, and how they compare to each other when trying to capture leads on a website. What’s the difference between requiring an email, or not?Let's say that a website offers free content such as white paper, eBook, or a free software trial.  When you go to download the content, you are often required to enter your email.

    When I picked up my new SUV last summer, the dealership tried to give me a quick overview of the dashboard and options available. They had me for the first five minutes and then I completely lost interest and just wanted to drive off into the sunset with my fancy new ride. Sadly that training failure isn’t an isolated experience for me or anyone else. For training to work well, the trainer needs to be knowledgeable, structured, patient, and have the ability to apply their skills to situations the trainees can understand. The trainee also needs to be in the right mindset, be in the proper…

    I’ve recently been talking a lot about website design requirements, proposals, and contracts. I’ve done so because I know a successful website design launch is more than software code, text, and images. Website design success is a direct result of a structured process and solid documentation. Executing a successful website design project begins and ends with a solid documentation. This documentation can be a proposal, contract, or statement of work. The name of the document is less important than the details contained within the document. Whether you’re a small business or a large…

    Most WordPress users do not understand the difference between the customization of an existing WordPress theme and the creation of a custom WordPress theme design. And why should they? They’re users focused on running their business and not on the jargon of WordPress design. Each week we run into this area of confusion and each week I feel the frustration from users trying to maneuver through the maze of premium WordPress themes, graphic designers, programmers, and WordPress consultants. There are lots of WordPress professionals out there and this seems to grow by the day, which makes this…

Because owning your own products is one of the keys to long term online success. Yes, there are short term strategies that you can use to potentially make money here and there. And for many people that’s not such a bad thing to get started with and gain some experience. But really in the long run, becoming an owner of a quality product (or products) is definitely the way to go. (If you doubt this ask yourself this question: Can you think of ANYONE who is long term…

    URL parameters are the parts of the address of a web page (the URL) that are visible after a question mark (?). They might also be referred to as “query strings“. Numerous websites make use of query string parameters as a core part of their site architecture for tracking session IDs, languages, and more. However, query string parameters can often result in multiple variations of the same URL all serving the same content. For example, the following URLs would, in theory, all point to the same content: a collection of bikes. The only difference here is that some of these pages…

    4 Aug 2015 | 6:49 am
    WordCamp is always a great place to learn about new tools, but this year one of my most interesting discoveries, via Angie Albright, was Tweet Binder, an intriguing Twitter analytics tool.

    3 Aug 2015 | 6:00 am
    WordCamp Fayetteville 2015 was excellent, with lots of socializing and lots of learning. The Implementation Jam Session on Sunday gave me a chance to work on several interesting projects and to get to know some new people. This year, I had challenged myself to meet everyone, but that did not happen. I had the pleasure of organizing the speakers this year, however, so I got to meet all the presenters, and that was inspiring. Don’t miss the slides and WordPress TV sessions, even if you weren’t able to get to WCFay this year. We’re getting them uploaded as quickly as possible.
  • Local Search 2015

    30 Jul 2015 | 10:35 am
    I wrote about an experiment we did in local search a while back. We had three team members in different parts of town search for a local bakery. With 9 trials, we  found these results: Out of nine trials, Rick’s Bakery was #1 in eight. Bliss Cupcakes was #2 in five of nine trials — and not even above the fold in the other four. Stone Mill was #2 twice and #3 twice, and showed up below the local results twice, but was invisible in the other two trials. From this data, we were able to conclude that Rick’s Bakery ranked above the others, and we also drew these conclusions:…

  • Do AdSense really ban publishers for using Facebook ads?

    Mat Bennett
    30 Jul 2015 | 7:12 am
    With their massive ad inventory and low rates, Facebook is a key source of cheap, targeted traffic for many website owners. Yet, despite the obvious potential of Facebook as a paid traffic source, many websites that use Google AdSense steer well clear out of fear of getting banned by AdSense. Like many AdSense publisher fears, this one largely stems from forum posts by “innocent publishers who were banned for no reason”.  These posts appear with regularity on most popular webmaster forums and generally contain just enough detail to spread fear, but not enough to be useful in any way.

What are RLS ads? For the last few years remarketing…

The trick is getting UGC in the first place. You need to make it clear to your customers that you want to hear from them, but you don’t want to come across as exploitative. As a result, you need to be careful about how you acquire the content. Plus, after you have it, you need to…

    Magento and WooCommerce are two of the most common e-commerce platforms going. With a little bit of research, you’ll discover that each platform has a large community of adamant advocates, which makes for an incredibly helpful pool of resources for business owners. We’re not quite as biased, as are some of the enthusiasts out there. Both are excellent, but which product is right for you depends on several factors. Let’s go over the fundamentals of each. First, some background information.       WooCommerce is the younger of the two platforms, having just been released in…

    It’s no secret that mobile devices influence shopping decisions.  Consumer studies show that shoppers use their high-end mobile device before and during a purchase. Because of this digital influence, shopping decisions can happen anytime and anywhere.  This environment is referred to as  “micro-moments”.  Today consumers do not rush out to the shopping mall to complete their purchases when they have other options.  Thanks to mobile devices and digital shopping opportunities consumers have the means of browsing, comparison shopping and researching the items they want to buy right at…

    In today’s age of flashy design, slick animation and crisp layouts, page speed often gets passed by during the redesign process. However, this can be a huge mistake no matter how engaging your website may look.

    Cory Bosket
    12 Jun 2015 | 7:02 am
    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…

    David Szetela
    29 Jul 2015 | 2:37 pm
    Has the Age of “Paid SEO” arrived?   Picture this: Google crawls your site, matches a search query to one of your most important keywords, and then places a related, automatically-generated listing, pointing to the appropriate landing page – in the part of the SERP reserved for ads. Paid organic rankings? The death of keywords? Google took a step in this direction recently when it announced completely-revamped Dynamic Search Ads (DSAs). Originally made available three years ago, this already-powerful tool has been “enhanced and retooled from the ground up.” Basically, the DSA…

    Your campaign is out of production and off to promotion. Your team begins to build a list of targeted publishers, but they might be overlooking a crucial step: identifying a publisher’s level of social engagement. This metric has revolutionized publishing, and a strong social presence is what contrasts exclusive-worthy publishers from the rest. Take a minute to think about it: What do sites such as BuzzFeed, Mashable, and Business Insider have in common? They’ve each earned a strong following by optimizing engagement on multiple social channels. In order to maximize your outreach efforts,…

    Full disclosure: I’ve been on both sides of the PR equation. Today, as a writer who blogs for The Next Web, Entrepreneur, and Forbes, I’m on the receiving end of dozens of pitches, several hundred HARO replies, and handfuls of phone calls per day. Years ago, in another marketing lifetime, I was also on the pitching side—as part of my job, I cold-pitched journalists and bloggers to write about a product that I was trying to pitch. I’ll admit that both sides of the equation have driven me bonkers for different reasons. As a journalist, it’s hard to find great stories, and it breaks my…

You get a bite from an editor who absolutely loves the campaign but everything comes screeching to a halt: Your asset doesn’t fit on the publisher’s site. During the production of a campaign or when you’re crafting the perfect pitch, it’s easy to overlook unique publisher restrictions. These restrictions can range from only offering a “nofollow” link to not being able to include third-party graphics. Arguably the most common promotions issue is a publisher…

    Top PR leaders embrace a simple yet powerful mindset: you shouldn’t always believe what you hear. For one, the communications space is very crowded, with PR pros outnumbering journalists at a ratio of 4.6 to 1. When markets get crowded, competition becomes cutthroat—and in the world of work, it’s not unheard of for false signals (read: noise) to arise as a result.  Secondly, PR is a job function that’s driven by relationships, personality, and creativity—your biggest strength is your personality. With this premise in mind, we asked our community to walk us through two things: (1)…

It is the most nuanced, complete, uncompromising, and honest portrayal of an American city that has ever invaded our televisions. David Simon addresses the urban experience in Baltimore with a deft wit and poignant observation reminiscent of Dickens’ social criticism of Victorian-era England. You would need a college class, and there have been many, to even begin to discuss the many social impacts of The Wire. This article does not attempt to do that. This…

While I could TRY argue that any father of a 2 year old doesn’t have hobbies there was a lot of time that I wasn’t “fathering”. So…What do I like to do? #notjustSEO – There’s a Lot To Do In Nashville! I’ve decided to explore this city that I moved to when I was hired by Raven Tools as their in-house SEO.

    I was recently asked to contribute to Ahref’s monster expert roundup that ended up with 90 SEO experts contributing! It’s worth the read! I thought I’d share my own response to the prompt: 1) Please tell us about your favourite “white hat link building strategy that scales”. (What makes it your favourite one? How to execute it properly?) 2) How do you scale it? (What tools do you use? Where do you hire people to scale it?)

    By the way, have you heard about the content marketing tools that are used to find real influencers? I am using the word “real” as number of fans and followers can very well be faked and it happens in many cases. So, how would you know that the person you’re going to approach as part of your influencer outreach program is a real influencer? The answer is simple; look for the “buzz” created and the “real impact” along with other signals such as likes, fans and followers. Contrary to classic SEO practices, SEO companies are now gaining awareness about the concepts of “buzz”…

However, the rollout is extremely slow and that’s the reason people didn’t notice it. According to Google, it may take months till the time we are able to notice any significant impact on the website rankings. It might also not affect all the pages of a website in the short run. Google officials were tight-lipped about why the rollout is so slow. This refresh is happening just after 10 months from the…

With a little bit of research, I’ve realized today that there’s precious little valuable information about what cornerstone content really is all about. Strange, considering there’s no dearth of content marketers out there. First things first, what exactly is cornerstone content? There are a lot of people advising other people about setting up their cornerstone content pages but how exactly is it made? According to Neil Patel at…

I’m a huge fan of this quote by Steve Krug because it’s a great lesson in minimalism and staying focused on the user experience. Both, writers and SEOs, get caught up in stuffing as much detail as possible (500-word article mandates, anyone?) into their content without realizing that the customer does not have the time, interest or patience to sit through cascading walls of text. Today, I want you to internalize this thought: customers and customer experience first. People who have clicked on…

    Managing online reputation is still not considered a necessity but the impact of negative reviews may be far greater than we realize. A brand’s positive image is not built in a day and through advertisements alone. It is a continuous process of engaging customers, of providing them quality after sales services, and being vigilant about what is being said about the brand. The key is to be proactive and have a plan in place to ensure that the majority of the customers feel attended to and cared for. Continue reading...

    Since mobile search surpassed desktop earlier this year, digital marketing experts have been putting a LOT of effort into mobile optimization. In fact, a single search for ‘mobile-friendliness’ or ‘responsive web design’ will generate thousands of results. Although more and more businesses are switching to Responsive Web Design (RWD), it has now created a new problem: focusing too much on mobile. Although responsive web design can be an effective user experience strategy to attract traffic and get clicks on multiple devices, it’s not a magic bullet. In order to gain a REAL…

A car salesman wouldn’t come up to you and say: “This car is $18,000, here are the papers and if you just sign here it’s yours.” That would be ridiculous… he warms you up and guides you along his path, feeding you information and building comfort and trust until he closes you.

    Human nature is somewhat predictable. We tend to follow the crowd. For example, if you pass by a busy nightclub, with a long line, your first thought is probably “this place must be awesome”. Similarly, if you pass by an empty venue, you tend to assume that there are good reasons for the vacancy. Nightclub owners know this, and we make these little decisions without really thinking. They’re instinctive. They happen in a flash, and we tend to act on them. That’s social proof in action, and smart marketers know that it can be a powerful tool in their marketing…

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. In short, they have head to learn to think more like traditional marketers. Today, it is just as important to get inside…

    There has been plenty of discussion recently about “full-stack,” or T-shaped employees: generalists who can do a little bit of everything. For digital marketers, that means you should be able to write compelling copy, devise creative strategies, code a landing page and design an email template. As nice as that sounds, the realities of the workplace often make that difficult to achieve. Professionals naturally develop core competencies in which they excel.

      If you’re into gadgets (and since you’re following us, chances say you are), you’ve probably watched at least one “unboxing” video already. You get to see someone – usually just someone’s hands – take out something from its original box, remove the wrapping, maybe even turn the device on, all this while an off-screen voice tells about how it looks and how it feels. Most unboxing videos don’t really go into a proper review of the product’s technical specifications or of how it actually works. It’s really about the initial excitement of getting something new out of…
  • Is Tribal Marketing the New Niche Marketing?

    Lyndon Antcliff
    27 Jul 2015 | 1:46 am
    As content creators we spend most of the time focused on niches, or sectors, when we should be creating content for tribes. I first read about the concept of Tribes in a book by Seth Godin. Since then I always make sure my content appeals to a specific and influential tribe, rather than targeted at a niche.   There are lots of advantages to targeting tribes and at the very least, learning the technique can add another effective tool to the toolbox.   In many ways niche marketing is old school. The technique has been around for many a years and although some of it does still hold water…

    There is a common saying that “no job is finished until the paperwork is done”. And this quote is just as true for any profession – from a small eCommerce business to the Government – because generally talking, the only way a client can judge how well you’re doing the job is by reading the reports frequently. If something wasn’t included in the report, the client usually assumes it didn’t happen. If the report is inadequate, the client assumes that the job done is inadequate. If the report is neat, comprehensive and delivered on time, the client assumes that the people…

      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…

    URLs remain an important part of your SEO setup, as well as an important component of getting your content shared and well received.

Most CMS platforms will automatically generate a URL based on your settings and site structure, but altering it slightly yourself can take it to the next level and maximise the SEO benefits.

  • Alternative Tags Should NOT Be An ALTERNATIVE

    Kristen Wilson
    8 Jul 2015 | 4:53 pm
    I probably lost you already huh? Alternative tags, also known as alt tags are the 2nd naming mechanism for a picture you upload on your website. The first would be the title, irony huh? The second is the alt tag. The alt tag has some SEO value in that the search engines usually check out the title and the alt tag since the spiders can’t read images (this includes pdf files as well) so it reads the text. Remember that not everyone can see your post so when readers come into play, when the reader gets to your image, your alt text is read by the reader – just like with the search engines.

    I’ve read a lot of blogs and while I, personally, get in the habit of opening links in a new window (right click, open in new window) because I want to finish what I am reading later, too many don’t and if they don’t, you will lose them. What I mean is when you are writing a blog or page about a topic and maybe source one of your top influencers or cite some article that had the data or survey on it, does your link open in a new window?  If not, you just innocently sent your traffic to that source’s page – Yay for them but not for you.

    Unless you are a kid at a birthday party on one of those Bounce Houses – for us adults, bounce rate is usually considered a bad thing. But why? The term bounce rate is used when a visitor navigates away from the site it was directed to, after only viewing one page.  It is calculated, in percentage, by the number of site visitors who leave after only visiting one page, essentially.  Let’s not forget that this doesn’t always (depends on the analytics) include a length of time on one page. For example, if you land on this blog, read it and leave, it might be considered a bounce. So, you…

    Effective design relies on a lot of things: structure, composition, delivery, and more. However, arguably the most important element is the imagery. Unfortunately for us, that drives the price right up. When even the blandest of stock photo can run you ten bucks, projects can get expensive fast. My most recent blog needed three high-quality images – a cover image and three images sub-sections images – and it wasn’t even that photo-heavy. Thankfully, times are changing! Thousands of unbelievably kind photographers are opening their photo catalogs to the public and our wallets…

    When you look at the last 24 years of Internet browsing and web design, the client experience has evolved rapidly.  I remember in December 1991 surfing the Internet and logging into the University of Bucharest computer system to check a local weather forecast. I was headed half-way around the world to adopt my daughter and was amazed at this new technology. Back then, I was using a browser called Gopher, which layered window over window over window.
