Longer-term planning enables consistent strategies and resource allocation to be followed in line with company product launches and campaigns and anticipated changes in the marketplace. In digital marketing we recommend a similar strategic approach. Although digital media change rapidly, the long-term transformation needed for effective digital marketing means that you won’t be able to transform the organisation in 3, 6 or even 12 months.

5 New Realities of SEO

5 New Realities of SEO | Social Media Around the World | Scoop.it

To improve accuracy Google and Bing are attempting to understand what was actually meant by a search and refining results based on semantics.

A really good insight into the complexities with SEO consultancy and how to understand what you need to concentrate upon to get the most out of any SEO work you undertake.

SaiSrinivasCom's curator insight, October 25, 2013 1:02 PM

Should you really care about SEO any longer? A lot of emphasis is being laid on Social signals and perhaps in a way "drum beat your presence". If linking was a bane to get ranked previously, how is it very different from "drum beating your social presence"?

Many phone technology companies like Apple, Samsung and LG are turning to curved screens. These curved screens are made of a flexible glass like willow glass or gorilla glass. Bendable glass will feature curved displays on phones. When is this technology going to be implemented and hit the market?
