Google Authorship is the Future

Google Authorship is the Future

Google authorship ties your content together with your Google+ account. The result is that Google takes you as an author into account when delivering search results (for a comprehensive view, check out this article on Google authorship). It was important when we wrote about it a couple months ago, and it’s only getting more important by the day. This week, […]

Yahoo Trying to Purchase Hulu

Yahoo is like the last of the great dinosaurs. It’s head, once proudly held high over creation, now dragging through the mud and dirt at the end of its ineffectual neck. They’ve been making moves, trying to change their internal structure to grow, but those haven’t seen much result. Their new tactic is buying up properties (like Tumblr for 1.1 […]

Memorial Day is the unofficial start of the summer, but it’s also the day for remembering the men and women who sacrificed their lives serving in the armed forces.

Blogging Longhand

Blogging Longhand

All too often when we sit at the computer, we aren’t writing, we’re typing. It’s a subtle distinction but it’s an important one. Do you ever stare at your screen and know you need to get something down so you just hammer it out? Worse yet, do you ever stare at the screen, knowing you need to get something down, […]

Snapchat Not So Temporary After All

Snapchat Not So Temporary After All

Have you ever heard of Snapchat? It’s an app developed for iOS and Android. Using Snapchat, you can send pictures back and forth with your friends, the twist is that these pictures self-destruct after being opened.

SEO on SEO Crime

SEO on SEO Crime

When you’re in the search engine optimization game, you encounter a lot of distrust wherever you go. People don’t understand SEO, so they treat every interaction like you’re a mechanic in a skeazy shop, telling them their radiator has snake-tubes or something.

Google Replaces Instant Previews

Melodramatic? Yes. Do we feel bad about it? Not in the slightest. Anyway, let us here at Wikimotive tell you the latest […]

This Guy Sucks: A Magic Moment

This Guy Sucks: A Magic Moment

When it comes to wannabe-writers and reading, Stephen King tells us there is a magic moment, and this is true (even for SEO writers).

In Memoriam Image SEO

In Memoriam Image SEO

The past few months have represented the quiet death of an SEO error. There was no fanfare, no mournful songs were played and no beautiful, young wives stood weeping by the casket. It was a death that had more whimper than bang. At first, we thought it was an aberration, surely it could be revived? Alas, no amount of triage […]

Search Behavior Infographic

Search Behavior Infographic
