Google's URL Shortener

By Adam  |  15 Jul 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

Its own URL is pretty short, funnily enough. When doing marketing over Twitter, one thing which a lot of people grapple with is their very restrictive character limit. On the one hand, this stops people from waffling on, brings them straight to the point and helps to make tweets nice and punchy. On the other hand, this has some frustrating set backs; not only do images take up large portions of the character limit (for some bizarre reason) but it's also rather difficult to share

Private Blog Networks

By Adam  |  11 Jul 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

Typing up the latest blog post. One of the best ways to artificially increase the search rankings of your eCommerce website, is to create your very own private blog network (PBN.) I should make it clear that trying to artificially manipulate search engine rankings is something which is frowned upon by Google (the main search engine which anybody would worry about) and if you are found to be doing this, your site can be penalised and this can cause you to disappear from the rankings

Increase Efficiency with Google Drive

The logo of Google Drive. Pretty nice. As your business begins to grow bigger and bigger, you'll find that there's more and more for you to manage. With so many things which need to be taken care of, you'll almost certainly turn to spreadsheets as they're one of the most convenient ways of viewing and recording information - if you can find everything you need on a spreadsheet, it will save you having to rummage through paperwork when you need to get a specific piece of

Imitating Big Brands

By Adam  |  27 Jun 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

One is you, one is your competitor. When you're a small independent business selling through an eCommerce website, one difficulty you may face is persuading people that you're a company worth buying from. As much as people may be attracted to the idea of supporting small, independent businesses, they're also quite comfortable with big brands as they know exactly what they're getting from them and buying from somebody else is often viewed as quite a risk!   One

Keyword Stuffing

By Adam  |  24 Jun 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

When writing the content for any website, eCommerce or otherwise, you're going to want to include relevant keywords. If you sprinkle a few keywords throughout the content on your homepage, then this will show search engines that your website is somehow connected to those words and then factors it in to how well you rank when people search for those search terms (and similar ones too.) But if you take this method too far, that's called keyword stuffing and is actually going to be

Moz - A Fantastic SEO Resource

By Adam  |  24 Jun 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

The classic Moz logo. SEO - how much do you know about it? Well, it's an ever-evolving field and so if you think you know everything, it will never be for long! Plus, while many aspects of SEO are things which are fairly logical and basic, there are a lot of things which are very complex and technical, things which you'd never manage without a hefty dose of research. When it comes to SEO research, Moz is one of the best websites to turn to.   So what makes Moz so

Is Your Site Static

By Adam  |  22 Jun 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

Do you think your website is static? Sure it might have flashy graphics and videos and images on it, but it could still, ultimately, be very static. How often do you add new content to your site? This is a very important factor for search engine algorithms because if they don't see anything added to a site in quite a long period of time, they'll see this as an indicator that a site may have been abandoned, or at least, that it's a site whose owners don't put much effort into it.

Microsoft Buys LinkedIn

By Adam  |  20 Jun 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

In an unexpected turn of events, Microsoft has purchased the professional networking site, LinkedIn for an enormous $26 billion! What makes this especially interesting is the fact they are paying in cash and also that this means that they are essentially paying over $60 for each individual profile – but it is all of the profiles (and the information which can be gained from each one) which is actually what has given LinkedIn that value. All the data that Microsoft obtains about people in
