Each month, we like to collect the most interesting and relevant articles from the fields of SEO, content marketing, and social media. This time around Google dominated the news cycle with their two announcements, one regarding HTTPS and the other marking the end of Google authorship. Mixed in among these major news items, we’ve also included a number of well-written and informative industry posts that caught our eye in August. If you’re looking for the same great content the rest of the year, don’t forget to check in with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.
