Search engine visibility is the number one priority for most online businesses, but thriving in these competitive spaces can be a huge challenge. This is often compounded by a lack of collaboration between teams, which is a recipe for disaster!
Ever think about Google Panda? It feels a little “old hat” to talk about it, since it’s now nearly five years old. But this service, which ruthlessly searches the Internet for pages that don’t meet its quality standards — and penalizes sites with substandard content, is still worth addressing.
Whether you like it or not, people still search online for what they want–and increasingly, they do it from their phones. Do you want them to find your business, or your competitors, when they do those searches?
You may have heard about the value of links to improving your rankings, but have you heard of Google penalties such as Panda and Penguin? If you have a website for your business it is more important than ever to understand how search engines work so you can improve your online visibility and, just as importantly, avoid being penalised for breaking Google’s webmaster guidelines.
The little things are important in SEO. But so are the big things. And sometimes we can spend so much time sweating the small stuff, that we completely fail to see the 800 pound gorilla that’s stomping all over our google rankings.
I get a lot of emails saying things like this: “We were hit by Google’s Penguin algorithm. We did a thorough link cleanup six months ago and NOTHING has changed.” An incredible number of small businesses have been decimated by Penguin. They’re trying to recover but are not succeeding.
“It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” If you are determined to create a killer search-engine-optimization strategy, take Mark Twain’s quote to heart.
Regardless of your company size, it’s a challenge to find the time to manage all your content marketing efforts. Content creation, distribution and promotion via different channels all take time as does the management of social media engagement and measuring outreach efforts and effectiveness.
In 2009 Fletcher Cleaves was a top high school football prospect ready for the next level, eager to do in college what he’d done in high school: rack up yards as a running back. But before Cleaves could realize his dream of playing at the next level, a texting, distracted driver plowed into the car he was driving, forever changing his life’s trajectory.
The panda is watching. When it comes to a Google search – a whole lot of factors play a part in where you turn up. But thanks to the 2011 Panda Updates these factors no longer include low-quality, ‘thin’ website content that is stuffed with keywords. If your website is seen as “high-quality” in Google’s eyes, these Panda updates will reward your website with ranking boosts, and more importantly – traffic boosts.
Guest blogging is a wonderful and mutually beneficial relationship between writer and publication. It’s great for the writer, of course, who might be looking to get her name out there as a thought leader and industry expert while also helping grow her own readership.
For digital marketers, content marketing and link building are vital for each and every one of our campaigns. Some of the challenges we face during these campaigns are getting links to our content, developing content that people want to share, or simply finding the time to build links to our content.
If “content marketing” was the promotional trend of 2014, paid social amplification is all the rage in 2015. But, as with any practice-turned-buzzword, there are a lot of myths and misconceptions around what exactly “social amplification” is. Is it just a fancy way of saying “paid advertising on social media”, or something more?
