On September 26, 2013, Google let slip that it had updated its overall search platform, which they referred to as “Hummingbird.” In this post, I am going to take a look back at the past year to see what impact Hummingbird may have had. One of my goals with this post is to help dispel […]
Within the current search landscape, most search engine optimisation campaigns have become increasingly content-led. The majority of the campaigns that I work on revolve largely around the production and placement of high quality content on top-tier sites. This approach to search engine optimisation is more akin to a typical PR campaign than a traditional SEO […]
Twitter may start looking a lot more like Tumblr soon thanks to the new support of animated GIF files. Across the web, Android & iOS platforms users will be able to view their favorite GIF images in full motion. This is a tad surprising since Twitter also owns Vine, the 6-second video social network. While […]

Most marketers would agree that to be competitive, we do not operate in an either/or environment. It’s not a choice between either SEO or social, or SEO and PPC. It’s a requirement that we understand how these channels work together to impact one another, and a website’s ability to stay afloat in the growing search […]
Link acquisition and auditing issues for the advanced SEO was probably one of the most popular sessions at SMX Advanced. The panelists framed the discussion around three areas: Preventative Link Building, Link Earning and Site Auditing. However, the tips — at least as far as I could tell — did not number the exact “25” described […]
What a great week this has been! Why you may ask? Well this week I attended SMX Advanced over in Seattle, one of the most talked about and recommended search marketing conferences in the world. The week started off with a trip to the Moz office for a look around, followed by the SMX Advanced …
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Marketers are frustrated by plunging organic reach on Facebook Pages. Pages formerly accustomed to percentage per fan reach in the mid-teens are seeing low single digits. Facebook gets it. So today Brian Boland, Facebook’s vice president of ads product marketing, posted a detailed explanation of why reach is […]
No longer will users have to hop around from Tweet to Tweet when looking to find the context of a linked Tweet. A new test available to some users in the Twitter app allows users to paste a link to a previous Tweet, and when it is pushed live, it will become an embedded Tweet. […]
At SMX Advanced last week, Google’s head of search quality, Matt Cutts, announced that they will be revising their reconsideration requests rejection notices with more detailed responses in some cases. We’ve now located an example of the new rejection notices, as shared by @johnedwarddoyle with me on Twitter. The new notice has a new section […]
In December 2011, Google launched author stats within Google Webmaster Tools, giving those who used authorship across sites, statistics on how well their content did. Author stats were unique in that it would show you how many impressions and clicks your content received not on a site by site basis but rather across all sites […]
Facebook tied up one of the loose ends in its mobile and web product today, announcing a bookmarking feature that allows users to save posts for later viewing. The new feature, called Save, is arriving fairly late in the read-it-later game, behind well developed services like Pocket and Instapaper that have grown popular with people […]
SearchMetrics released a study on the penetration of Universal Search results in the Google search results. By Universal Search we mean the way Google “blends” results from “vertical” search engines like Google Images, Google Videos, Google Maps or Google News into its web search listings.

As a long-time web marketer (since 1998 — that’s like 160 internet years!), I’m a bit of a stickler for things that impact my online marketing efforts. Aside from actual on-page optimization and linking efforts, there is nothing that impacts a site’s performance more than the development and design. In fact, a site with excellent […]
Ask any SEO what the most difficult, confounding and valuable part of optimization is, and you’ll invariably get a consensus: link building. Even the term “link building” has become so controversial that many marketers are shying away from it in favor of “content marketing” or “online PR.” Marketers know to log, track and report on […]
Though social followings and social engagement play an important role in any company’s overall online presence, nothing beats email when it comes to accessing prospects on demand. Consequently, getting customers to make the leap from “fan” to “subscriber” is an important conversion point for many online business — but it’s often not done with much […]
In this column, I will make a case that Facebook’s reduction of organic reach for brand pages is a win-win for both Facebook and brands. I will also assert that while Facebook’s throttling of reach is indeed an attempt to make more money, it’s not in the way you think. But to get there, we must […]
