Nooks, Kindles, iPads…oh my! Whatever happened to paperback and hardbacks?! According to one source, people who own e-readers are reading more than they might otherwise, as reflected in rising e-book sales. As a result, e-reader sales continue to increase. Could e-books eventually make good old fashioned books obsolete? Probably not. One reason? For now, only 20% of e-reader owners say that the e-content they want is always available.

Using Social Media as SEO - What Can it Do For You? - | Marketing & Webmarketing | Scoop.it

"Social media has become an important factor in Google’s algorithm calculation to work out the ranks of businesses in search engines. Webpages are likely to rank higher if they’ve been shared, ‘liked’, ‘followed’ and generally talked about on social networking forums. With the fast move towards the community branding in social media, people are looking to be recommended services by their peers, and social media is the crux and source of this recommendation service.

 

Many traditional SEO campaigns didn’t account for social media as it wasn’t considered by Google before. SEO was focussed on content, keywords, meta tags, title tags and several back end features of websites to boost a brand via its own platform. Now there are a plethora of services which the general public are using and your business should be a part of them..."

While inbound marketing is something that should not be ignored, it’s important to not get caught up in the hype and to disregard existing marketing channels that have been proven to deliver a tangible return on your investment.


For most businesses, driving immediate revenue is of primary concern. With limited budgets and resources at their disposal, there’s no school like the Old School..."

Battle of the Bubbles: Coca-Cola vs. Pepsi [INFOGRAPHIC] | Marketing & Webmarketing | Scoop.it

"Coca-Cola vs. Pepsi. Soda’s forever war. The never-ending bubble battle.

It’s a rivalry that goes way back — Coca-Cola’s been around since 1886 and Pepsi was created in 1898 — and social media is just the latest front. But how do they stack up against the other in this new arena?

 

True, Coca-Cola has by far the higher number of Facebook likes, 51 million to Pepsi’s 9 million. But if you look at other numbers, the situation is different and, if anything, Pepsi might be winning in the social media world."

Infographic Consumers favor email over other mobile messaging | Marketing & Webmarketing | Scoop.it

"Consumers name email as their top choice for mobile messaging, according to a survey of 322 consumers by StrongMail and Forrester Consulting. Those polled say frequency of messages and targeting are key influencers in their likelihood to open or respond to promotional offers they receive on their mobile phone.


The “Consumer Perceptions of Mobile Marketing for StrongMail” study also reveals that most smartphone users (65%) are willing to receive email promotions at least once a week, but are far less interested in receiving deals via SMS or in-app messages. In fact, 60% and 63% of respondents, respectively, prefer not to receive offers via those formats. And while smartphone users are more likely to purchase an item after opening a promotional email (32%), they're much less inclined to do so if they receive an SMS or in-app promotion (9% and 6%, respectively). Smartphone users cite bad links (28%), non-mobile optimized emails (28%), and network connectivity (23%) as the greatest barriers they face with mobile messaging..."

One of the most underappreciated aspects of SEO is the necessary alignment of SEO strategy with social media activity.

"Last week we hosted a webinar conducted by SEO expert Michael Fleischner. He is one of the world's most well-known SEO experts.

 

During the webinar he unveiled some data that we had never heard before and data that, frankly, surprised most of the people attending the webinar. He said this:


“It is clear that Facebook Shares are the single highest correlated metric with higher Google Rankings.”


This information is not exclusive to Michael Fleischner. Since he brought it to our attention we’ve seen vast amounts of research on the subject.

 

The most comprehensive is a study by SearchMetrics.com. Turns out that Facebook Shares and the Sum of all Facebook Activities (Shares, Likes and Comments) are the most significant social media-based SEO factors".

A Crystal Clear Explanation of How Social Media Influences SEO

A Crystal Clear Explanation of How Social Media Influences SEO | Marketing & Webmarketing | Scoop.it

How social context is playing a role in SEO and how marketers can adjust their strategies to match the changing character of search.

"More and more, search engines have begun to incorporate social context into their search results. And it's high time we dive into what role social context is playing in SEO, and how marketers can adjust their strategies to match the changing character of search. So without further ado, let's get into the nitty gritty of what's being called "social search" and learn how it affects marketers.

"Social search" is an evolving term for the way in which search engines factor a user's social network -- also referred to as social graph -- into how results are displayed after a search query. In social search, content that has a social connection to you in some way is prioritized. A social connection could mean someone you are linked to via Facebook, Twitter, or any other major social network. Alternately, some forms of social search prioritize content that has been shared by social media influencers, even if those experts aren't directly tied to you".

The Marketing Tactic that Social Media Marketers Often Forget | Business 2 Community | Marketing & Webmarketing | Scoop.it

" Pinterest is a popular paranoia, Instagram is indecently addictive and Facebook is so big you cannot ignore it. Social media is the hot business marketing trend. It is discussed at coffee shops, dinner parties and countless conferences.


You can use social media from desktops, iPads and iPhones, no matter where you are. Tweeting is the new texting and Google+ is gaining traction as its registered users now number over 400 million.

Social media marketing cannot be ignored. It is the marketing of the people. Marketing has been democratized. It is “native marketing” that requires no payment to third party channels (such as TV or radio) to promote your business. All you need is the content and the followers on your own social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, to distribute and share your brand message with and of course some marketing tools, skills and resources..."

The Google +1 Button Has No “Direct Effect” On Rankings

The Google +1 Button Has No “Direct Effect” On Rankings | Marketing & Webmarketing | Scoop.it

Google’s +1s do not have a direct effect on a site’s ranking in search results. Google’s Matt Cutts said as much in a “Power Searching With Google” hangout on Google+ (via Alex Graves)

 

Here’s more of what Cutts had to say in the hangout: “In the short term, we’re still going to have to study and see how good the signal is, so right now, there’s not really a direct effect where if you have a lot of +1s, you’ll rank higher.

 

But there are things like, we have an authorship proposal, where you can use nice standards to markup your webpage, and you’ll actually see a picture of the author right there, and it turns out that if you see a picture of the author, sometimes you’ll have higher click through, and people will say, ‘oh, that looks like a trusted resource.’

 

So there are ways that you can participate and sort of get ready for the longer term trend of getting to know not just that something was said, but who said it and how reputable they were.”

1997 Prediction, Meet 2009 Reality, covers. Now, a new infographic is out looking at how SEO has been “dying” over the years.

 

The infographic is from SEO Book and is interesting in that rather than taking a timeline approach, it instead shows examples of various types of people who’ve declared that SEO is dead and why they are, as the infographic puts it, “deluded.”

Approximately 60% of all web servers operate Linux. Only 27% of web servers are Microsoft. Apache web server has an approximate 60% market share (2011).

Key findings from the study by RichRelevance include:

Facebook was by far the dominant social media source of shopping sessions, at 85.8 percent, followed by Pinterest at 11.3 percent, and Twitter at 2.9 percent. Shoppers who arrived at retail pages via Facebook viewed nearly seven pages per visit, compared with slightly more than four for Pinterest and under three for Twitter.
