In case you don’t know, Fiverr is elance for stupid people a site where people offer services (known as gigs) and they all cost five dollars. Now, these services can […]

When Will PageRank Update?

When Will PageRank Update?

Yesterday we talked a little about Google PageRank, and that got us wondering, when was the last time that it had actually been updated? Historically, it’s been updated every few months, but as Matt Cutts said yesterday, Google is going to be updating it less and less. It turns out, we are already in the middle of an historic PageRank […]

Don’t Plagiarize (and Double Check!)

In today’s digital marketing world, content is king, but not everyone has the time to be creating content (or so they claim). As a result, they turn to plagiarizing content from other sources on the web to fulfill their own site’s content needs. Not only is this immoral and just a lousy thing to do, it’s also ultimately bad for […]

Penguin, Panda, and now…Hummingbird

Penguin, Panda, and now…Hummingbird

We’ve grown accustomed to Google updating parts of their algorithms they use for search. So far in 2013, we’ve seen tweaks to Penguin and Panda that have affected massive parts of the population…but we haven’t seen anything yet.

Simple Evergreen Content

Simple Evergreen Content

Evergreen content is content that is always useful. In the digital marketing world, it’s not uncommon for even great advice to be outdated after a few months. Heck, with SEO and social media, it’s not unheard of that good advice is outdated in just a couple weeks. If you don’t want all of your content to become obsolete (even though […]

The BigSEO Subreddit

The BigSEO Subreddit

A few months ago we talked about the benefits of Reddit. Reddit isn’t a great place to market (not in any kind of organized way, anyway) but it is a great place to come together and talk to your peers. In our original article, we talked about the benefits of the SEO Subreddit, /r/SEO. Today, we want to share another […]

Fatten Up Your Content

There seems to be a new epidemic going around peoples’ Google Webmaster Tools: the thin content warning. It’s not an especially surprising trend. Content is the new sheriff in town, so everyone is rushing to get as much of it as they possibly can. The problem is that they aren’t thinking about what “content” really means. It isn’t about populating […]

Et Tu Guru?

Et Tu Guru?

Social media marketing is a thriving field, but it differs from other fields in that there is no formal education required. Anyone and their mother can build a website and claim to be a social media expert, and they do (and so do their mums.) The trick is learning how to shuck all those fishy clams quickly in order to […]
