As Google continues to strengthen its chokehold on the U.S. search market and keep the competition at bay, the industry's best minds struggle to develop new tools and strategies to cope with Google's dominance and find a way to breakthrough and regain a foothold in an industry that has long been controlled by Google. As Yahoo's Marissa Mayer approaches one year on the job as CEO, she is looking to revamp Yahoo's approach and breathe new life into the competition for number one in the search industry.
It was announced last week that Mayer and Yahoo! are in the process of developing several new tools and strategies to try and revive Yahoo's prospects of regaining market share in the lucrative search ad industry. As of 2012 the industry brought in roughly $19.8 billion in revenue related to search advertising. As of the end of the first quarter of 2013, Google held 67% of the search engine marketplace in the U.S., bringing with it a sizable chunk of that $19.8...
When it comes to search engine optimization, many people make the mistake of focusing largely or exclusively on a site's text content. As long as articles and blog posts are well written and the right keywords have been deployed in the right places, some site owners and even SEOs assume that there's little else to be improved as regards a site's front end.

The value of image searches in driving traffic can't be overstated — especially since Google serves a block of image results at the top of its regular search results page. These naturally draw the eye and encourage searchers to click on the associated links.
The vital role of social media in determining a page...
Google Analytics is a free, but incredibly powerful tool that can provide you with a wealth of detailed data about your website or sites that you can then use for marketing and search engine optimization (SEO) purposes. Analytics is available to anyone with a Google account. The program includes quite a few innovative features – some that were included from the first Analytics release, and others that have been added more recently. Understanding these features, their use and their purposes can help you take better advantage of Google Analytics’ power.
Many companies that maintain an online presence use Google’s Adwords program to generate traffic to their sites by posting ads next to relevant search results pages.
