The New SEO Rules - Any Online Marketer's Nightmare

What has happened to the old way of doing SEO? When you first started your online business, you were probably taught that backlinks were the most important factor when you had to rank high in Google and other search engines. But then Google went and change the rules and now you have no control over you ranking, at least not in the same way as you had before. What Happened? In the old days it was much easier to control your own search engine ranking, as you knew exactly what you had to do to influence the search engines. You knew that if you made sure to increase your number of backlinks you were very likely to reach the first page of Google. You were told that you had to make sure that the anchor text you used in your backlinks was your keyword or keyword phrase to make them count and improve your ranking. This rule no longer exist, as you will be more likely to hurt your own business if you use too many of the same anchor text. This also means that the...

Targeting Moms? Social Media is a Good Place to Start

Moms are responsible for keeping a lot of industries alive. As Nielsen put it, they “are at the center of their family’s offline life, so it’s little surprise that they’re also at the center of many of the biggest trends online as well.” If your business or website caters to families, kids, or women, then there’s a good chance that you have customers who happen to be moms. Do initial research and determine if mothers are a big part of your customer base. If they turn out to be a significant component of your user or client-base, then you may want to consider upping your online advertising and marketing efforts towards this particular demographic, because moms are increasingly becoming more web and social media savvy. In fact, according to Statista, mothers use social media a lot, with 80% of them using social media services regularly. That statistic right there should be enough to get you to increase your mom-centered social media...

You don't have a good social networking strategy. It's difficult. You post, comment, like, and tweet, and yet nothing happens. What should you do? One thing that might help is to take a look at your marketing strategy. Don't get pulled in too many different directions at once. Instead, focus on these five proven marketing strategies that have always worked and will probably always work. 1) Good Content Good content always wins the day. People love interesting stories, funny pictures, and shocking videos. The more good content you post up to your social media account, the better. Don't worry too much about content creation itself. Even curated content can win the day on sites like Facebook and Twitter. Because content moves so quickly on social networking sites, you can repurpose the content you previously posted and keep user engagement up. How do you repurpose content? Simple. Have someone rewrite it for you or rewrite it yourself. 2)...



How to Go About a Quality Link Building Exercise

How to Go About a Quality Link Building Exercise

Google has been reminding website builders and marketers of the importance of quality link building for years now. Ever since the Google Penguin update came out a couple of years ago, it's become clearer than ever that while most of these people have been hearing Google, they have not really been listening. They haven't understood what exactly Google's admonitions really mean. Apparently, when they hear Google tell them to concentrate on “quality link building”, they fail to hear the “quality” part. What are quality links? With Google releasing new updates to its Panda algorithm on a regular basis now, the emphasis on quality link building is stronger than ever. Basically, the general rule to follow is this: if the links that you are getting for your website are easy to get, if they are links that you don't really need to earn through effort, they are not quality links. Many people do know how to simply get...

So you want to work in social media? Before you start sending out resumes, realize first that being a social media manager (sometimes referred to as “community manager”) isn’t as easy as it looks and it certainly isn’t for everyone. On the outside, managing social networks may look like it’s all about posting interesting articles and hitting “like” every now and then.

The job requires an understanding of people and an eye for emerging trends and technology, among others. Below are some of the characteristics that would make a great social media / community manager. If you’re thinking about applying or taking a job in the industry, see if you possess the following traits. (If you don’t have these characteristics, you need to be at least open to developing them.)

5 Social Media Myths Busted

You've got a social media account - maybe several. What do you do now? If you're like most companies you either sit on it, post a few updates, or hire someone to take care of that stuff because it's laborious and doesn't lead to any kind of real bottom line results, right? Hold on a second. Social media isn't just for kids and Facebook isn't the only game in town. Have you bought into these other myths? 1) Myth: Google+ is dumb. Fact: Yes Google+ hasn't been as popular as Facebook. However, Google+ posts are showing up in the search results. If you want more visibility, get back on Google+ and get to work.

Your profile will show up next to the search results for posts that shows up in search results. Consider that a good thing.

Google Insider Hints That SEO is Dead

Google Insider Hints That SEO is Dead

The latest news that is rocking the Internet marketing world goes something like this: “Try to work on your website as if SEO was not part of your plan.” “…what I tend to tell people is the following; if you want to please Google with your SEO, then forget about SEO.” Those words are from the mouth of Andre Weyher. It's rare that you get to read anything about spam and quality control from anyone but Matt Cutts, but Weyher worked for Google's search quality team for two years and recently spoke with James Norquay, a search/digital marketer in Australia about the future of SEO. Of course, the statement comes from the mouth of just one ex-Google employee. Whether this is just his opinion or whether this is something that Google really wants webmasters to follow is up for debate. Search Engine Land's Matt McGee reported that Google had no official comment (they never got back to him), so it's...
