Vee Popat's insight:
Keeping up with trending topics and popular keywords is a vital part of increasing your social media presence. But finding paid or free keyword research tools, and conducting strong keyword research, can also be difficult if you don’t have a good starting point.

The best way to win the SEO game is by producing relevant, high quality content, with the user’s search intent at the top of the list.

Do keywords still matter? You better believe they do.

What do your customers use to type in to a mobile search, or to speak into a Google voice search? They use words! Keywords for your business!

Ignore keyword research if you will, but be careful, it may be the costliest mistake you make for your small business.

In my opinion, keywords are still, and always will be, the basis of search marketing. These keywords don’t just appear out of thin air, though.

From blogs to marketing promotions, using the best keyword research tool is essential to building your digital presence and getting noticed.

Use this guide to the 13 most popular keyword research tools to get started and save time that could be spent drafting great copy instead. Read more...

Vee Popat's insight:
What’s the Average Click Through Rate for Your Industry?

Google AdWords costs are almost as confusing as learning how to manage a Google Adwords CPC/PPC campaign. Your business needs to know the overall cost of a Google AdWords campaign, their AdWords cost per impression, and their average click through rate on each Ad and each keyword.

First thing you’ll want to do is ask your SEO company to source information on what industries have the highest click through rate (CTR), the lowest CTR, and where your business fits in that matrix.

Next thing is to ensure your SEO agency knows what industries have the highest (and lowest) engagement rates with PPC ads and which industries have the highest (or lowest) overall cost per acquisition (CPA).

If you’re armed with that sort of useful and open data, you’re close to being all set up to maximize your AdWords PPC strategy and more importantly, your digital marketing advertising budget.

Vee Popat's insight:

Google Says Step Up Your Mobile Marketing Game Or Else
Now more than ever, a mobile marketing strategy should be a vital part of any business’s digital marketing strategy moving into 2016. Google is paying attention to mobile marketing trends, this means you should too.

Mobile Marketing Trends for 2016
Remember the times I’ve repeated that businesses and brands should look at Google as a “referral engine” and not a “search engine”? (read the article here). Well now with the latest mobile marketing trends, Google says you can ask your best friend for the absolute best referrals for any problem, any challenge, or any question you need answered. 

When referring to your “best friend”, I’m talking directly about your mobile device. If you’re a local business or a multi-national chain, the news Google dropped last week is of vital importance to the future of your business and your digital marketing strategy.

In early October 2015, at the Code/Mobile conference at the Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay, Calif, Amit Singhal, the senior vice president of Google Search, made an official announcement that over 50% of the 100 billion monthly searches performed on Google come from mobile devices – specifically Smartphones.

Vee Popat's insight:

I Say Pinterest is the Second Largest Search Engine in the World
Pinterest Search Does What Google Can’t 

You may not have realized it but I’m hear to tell you that Pinterest is the 2nd largest search engine in the world, that Google doesn’t own. When looked at from a strictly mobile search perspective, this is most certainly the case. Trust me, Pinterest search is a big deal.

Can Pinterest overtake Google when it comes to mobile search?
If you own or operate a business that has local retail locations, Local SEO and mobile search should already be a part of your digital marketing strategy, but it doesn’t stop there.

Today, local businesses and social marketers should shift their marketing focus to a heavy pull strategy using Pinterest mobile search marketing strategies. Why you ask?

According to new research from eMarketer, over two-thirds of Pinners use their mobile devices to look at Pins while they’re physically in stores and shopping. Now imagine if this Pinner sees a selection of beautiful, optimized images of your products and services?

By the end of this read you should have a much better understanding of:

1. What a focus on Pinterest search and optimization can do for your business.
2. Why Pinterest plays a major role in a user’s purchase decision.
3. How Social Search is fast becoming a “thing”.

If you remember Mobilegeddon from last year, you’ll already understand that mobile friendly websites are an official Google ranking factor. 

Essentially, if your website isn’t mobile friendly, according to Google, your site is at risk being penalized in the search rankings. 

This means if you’ve held a competitive organic position in the search engine results pages (SERPs) for a few profitable keywords, Google will penalize your site and those rankings will drop – on mobile all searches.

Street name only: Exact addresses have been removed from listings, as well as phone numbers and Google+ links. Mobile users can click through to see a map with the full address information, or press a “Call” button to contact the business, but the numbers themselves are gone from the listing.

Store hours added: Opening and closing times are listed, including a “Closed” notification if the business is not open during time of search.

7-packs are now 3-packs: This is the biggest change of all. The old Google local listings would show you seven of the closest/most relevant businesses. Now, mobile users get a “snack pack” with only the top 3 results.

Vee Popat's insight:

Why Industrial Website Design Should Be Your Priority
One thing I’ve learned over the last few years is that companies in the industrial and/or manufacturing sector, particularly in the Niagara region, haven’t paid a lot of attention to their website and entire digital marketing strategy over the last 5-10 years. There literally aren’t many mobile responsive industrial website design ideas percolating.

From an industrial manufacturer’s perspective an easy objection to website marketing could be, “we don’t really even need our website because we get all of our business through word of mouth referrals.”
