Some of the pages on your website are more important than others. Okay, many of you probably find that fairly obvious -- but I'm surprised how few people actually apply this knowledge to their websites to improve conversions.

Last year, internet advertising surpassed newspaper advertising spending for the first time. Advertisers spent $5.1 billion on social media advertising in 2013 and this figure is expected to exceed $14 billion by 2018. In the third quarter of 2014, Facebook brought in $2.96 billion in advertising revenue, 66 percent of which came from mobile ads.
