Facebook Releases Advertising HUB for your Business’s Social Media

Over the course of this last year, Facebook has proven itself to be a viable advertising platform. They’ve increased the total adspace on users’ feeds and have also gotten better at targeting those ads with graph search.

Twitter Adds Analytics

Twitter Adds Analytics

Twitter is a great platform for interacting with your customers and customers-to-be, but it has always suffered from a lack of analytics. Unless you’re paying for ads, there hasn’t been a lot of ways for you to monitor things like favorites, retweets, and replies. Sure, you can check each post one by one to see how they performed, but that’s […]

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 […]

When you’re in the search engine optimization game, you encounter a lot of distrust wherever you go.

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 […]
