Facebook News Feed FYI for Social Media Marketing

Facebook News Feed FYI for Social Media Marketing

We always give Google guff about how mysterious their updates are, but Google doesn’t stand alone in the convoluted update realm.

Mobile is the Winner in Facebook Marketing

Facebook advertising it’s a difficult field to navigate. People aren’t sure what to trust and what actually has any positive affect at all.

People argue about the exact numbers, but the consensus is […]

Watch Your Language: Cryptomnesia

Watch Your Language: Cryptomnesia

Cryptomnesia has been on my mind a lot lately. In the course of reading dozens of marketing blog and writing hundreds of marketing words every day, it’s definitely a looming threat to myself, and everyone else in the industry.

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. To be honest, we can’t fault people for feeling this way, because there are so many scammy SEO companies out […]

Slideshare is for Lovers

Slideshare is for Lovers

Content is the SEO method of choice in 2013. Spam and content spinning are way, way out, and original content that has value to the reader is in. It’s not enough to just create the content though.

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 […]
