SEO continues to rule the roost as far as website traffic is concerned. And, yes we don't as yet have a new kid on the block. Keywords are not the only options for bumping up traffic on your website. In fact, there is much more to website traffic optimisation, such as content development, use of social media, and even sending new content by e-mail.

The Most and Least Trusted Brands Among Small-Business Owners

The Most and Least Trusted Brands Among Small-Business Owners | Business Support | Scoop.it

From United Airlines to Uber, we’ve seen a number of scandals unfold this year that have changed our feelings about a brand. And whatever size the business, its reputation and customers are key to its success.


Taking into account data from more than 23,000 small-business owners, Alignable revealed in its Q1 2017 SMB Brand Trust Index Report the most and least trusted brands. In the report, small-business owners were asked how likely they were to recommend a major brand to another business owner. Unsurprisingly, many of the brands we’ve seen in the news such as Uber, Wells Fargo and United Airlines had poor reputations among business owners.


However, people are very trusting toward tech companies such as Amazon, Wordpress and Google -- in fact, these brands have stayed in the top three positions for most trusted brands for two straight quarters. And whatever Amazon’s doing, it’s doing it right: The ecommerce giant has held first place for three consecutive quarters. For the first time ever, Apple and FedEx made their way to the the top five slots this quarter....

5 Incredible Ways to Boost Web Traffic Through Print Marketing 

5 Incredible Ways to Boost Web Traffic Through Print Marketing  | Business Support | Scoop.it

Let’s get a few things straight about the print versus digital marketing debate. First, print isn’t dead; if that was true, the debate would have ended when it died. Second, arguing over which method works better is nonsense.


Digital marketing isn’t universally better than print or vice versa, because each method works best for certain types of businesses. But there is one universal truth marketers need to realize: print and digital marketing are not mutually exclusive.


In fact, print marketing is a great way for any business to boost its Web traffic. It helps businesses that focus on digital marketing expand their audience. And if you’re already relying on print, tying it to your Web presence is a great way to step up your digital marketing game.


Here are five ways to boost your Web traffic with print marketing.

Links have always commanded significant focus when it comes to increasing organic search performance. Over the years, SEOs have built them by any means possible — legitimate and otherwise.

Recently, the market has adapted to significant algorithmic shifts and adopted a content marketing approach to link building. This move has led brands and SEOs to create huge volumes of content, often in a silo, with the pure purpose of building links to drive organic search performance. This approach rightly focuses on hitting channel KPIs, but it overlooks the wider business performance implications and consumer needs.
