Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Wow, how cool is this mashup? 

I was a little worried about firing this tool at our stack so I aimed it at my blog and what a relevation. The simple stuff is always the most helpful and this is BEYOND helpful in explaining if your website has gained or lost thanks to Google's Zoo (Panda and Penguin algorithm updates). 

The image above is for ScentTrail Marketing, my marketing blog. 

Kudos, as always to Robin Good. Robin (@RobinGood) is a MUST FOLLOW.

Panguin is a simple online tool that overlays Google's Panda and Penguin undates on your Analytics data so that you can see at a glance how your visitor stats were affected.

You done good Martin • my graph showed a major 35 day lull in traffic and the 100 recover • couldn't determine what content or links or social shares Panguin used to impact my SERPs?

Quick Web Writing Lesson - Curagami

Quick Web Writing Lesson - Curagami | Curation Revolution |

Web Copy
Writing web copy that wins hearts and minds is easier and harder than you think. Easier because tiny changes make huge differences in customer engagement and your website's ability to convert. Harder because learning to slow down and think about things like empathy, using OPW (Other People's Words) and the right way to use acronyms takes practice, discipline and courage. 

Here are the tips we share on Curagami:

  • Use OPW (Other People’s Words) – Trusted sources or industry gurus make excellent sources
  • Use Customer Words – Customers know you listen when they see features of User Generated Content (UGC)
  • Touch the Universal – R&D is hard, takes time and money is a “universal truth.”
  • Cliches – Cliches are another “truth” you can turn in your favor
  • Empathy Words – Use words that create a sense of empathy between YOU and whoever is reading your copy words such as “collaborate,” “teamed with” and “love.”
  • Acronyms – Acronyms can convey industry knowledge, but be sure to explain fully the first time you use an acronym
