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

By Adam  |  17 Jun 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

This person knows how to click "search" When you're doing content marketing you are doubtlessly going to be writing lots of new blog posts for your eCommerce websites and each new blog is a new page.

Google Rules

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

Whoogle? Yoogle. Owners or eCommerce websites are dependent upon Google, because Google is the search engine which most people use and the main way that anybody is going to find your site in the first place. The title of the post doesn't mean "Google Rules" as in "they're the best" (although they are doing the best in the search engine world), rather it refers to the rules that they expect all websites to adhere to - if you break these rules then you may be

Perfecting Your User Experience

By Adam  |  10 Jun 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

A lot of online businesses tend to focus solely on their products and give little thought to the user experience on their eCommerce website. There's a mentality of "If my product is really good, I don't need to worry too much about the site" but this is a pure untruth. While having a worthwhile product with a good, unique selling point is very important, the importance of perfecting your user experience also cannot be understated.   Try looking at your site from

Do Outbound Links Damage Rankings

By Adam  |  8 Jun 2016 12:00:00  |  Full article...

When people are doing content marketing, they're often a little concerned about including links to other sites in their content. A lot of people believe that search engines work like this: every site has a certain value and when it links to another site it is giving them some of its value and, therefore, decreasing its own value. Because of this, some people do not like to link to other sites unless they know that they can get a link back from the site that they linked

If you're doing content marketing, then you want to be sure that you are good at spelling and grammar. Any kind of content with poor spelling and grammar in it could make potential customers view a business negatively and maybe even make them decide that they don't want to buy anything: poor spelling and grammar is often seen as an indicator of an unreliable site.
