The Best Way to Learn SEO

One of the most common questions we get asked is “What is the best way to learn SEO?” There are a few obvious places to start, I would in particular recommend the Moz blog (especially the community posts), Matt Cutt’s Google Webmaster Help videos, and (of course) the Wikimotive blog we write here daily. If […] Read More

Speculation Saturday: Authorship or Die

Today I wanted to introduce a new feature here at Wikimotive. It may not stick, but we’re going to try it out. It’s called Speculation Saturday (yes, you have to capitalize it) and basically, we’re going to be talking about feelings we have about the industry. Some may be mired by cumbersome facts, others will […] Read More

The Dangers of Content Stitching

Today we have another interesting bit of content news from the immortal Matt Cutts (may Google bless his name). In the latest installment of the Google Webmaster Video series, Matt talks about content stitching. If you’ve never heard of that, don’t worry, because you’ve definitely seen it. Content stitching is the practice of taking snippets […] Read More

The Value of a Pin

Pinterest is a strange egg, there’s no doubt about it. I know a lot of businesses who are tearing their hair out trying to understand how certain brands are killing it making a profit on the social pinning site where all you do is virtually stick virtual images on virtual boards. To these people I […] Read More

New Manual Action Penalty

Earlier this year we wrote about manual actions rolling out in Google’s Webmaster tools. Basically, these manual actions were notices that a website had been penalized, usually for SEO reasons, and alerted the administrator of the problem, as well as the steps needed to fix it. Since the introduction, it’s been pretty quiet, but this […] Read More

Watch Your Language: Novel Advice

Once upon a time, writers were a rare breed, seldom seen by the world at large. They sat in their basements, scribbling mad words by candlelight and muttering to themselves about deadlines. They’d turn their advances into golden Irish spirits and use that strange fuel to power through the endings of their crazed manifestos. Unfortunately, […] Read More
