One thing for sure is that we do not rely on just one strategy and we have different strategies for different sized businesses based on what we are pitching to these brands. Recently a series of events occurred and I thought it would make a […]

Its not the links, its the risk…

By: | Tags: | Comments: 1

For many years the prevailing view of anyone building links for ranking improvement was that to acquire links from sites with good ‘link metrics’ was key to success. Since the original Penguin, possibly before that, this has changed. Links are still very much the signal used by Google to order their search results but which sites actually pass their full value and under what conditions is something every SEO has to contend with. Previous to Penguin I used to think about links as either passing their value or passing no […]

By: | Tags: , , , , , | Comments: 12

Before I go any further, these are my views and not the views of my employer. Just to be clear, this is not going to be the typical “Guide to link building in [insert year]“. The Internet has been awash with these predictions on link building strategies for many years, mainly in the hope of high rankings and potential traffic. There have been a few hiccups with the predictions over the years, most notably in 2011 with 99.9% of the sites publishing their annual “lets’ update last years’ post and […]

Google have been pushing the notion lately that making mobile websites as user friendly as possible is key. They even went as far to say “Because at Google we are aiming to provide a great user experience on any device, we’re making a big push to ensure the search results we deliver […]

By: | Tags: , , , | Comments: 0

Last month we saw the launch of Ello. The invite only social media platform that claimed to be rebelling against Facebook with its simplistic, no advertising, image heavy approach. After a few days of digital marketers making a fuss about it all went a bit quiet for Ello…   Nothing New To See Here Ello provided us with nothing new, it was the same old structure just without the advertising (how long could that have lasted?). Ello did however promise anonymity and privacy, something that is a hot topic post […]

The penguins are coming!

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

If the chatter on the line is anything to go by we are expecting the latest refresh of Google’s Penguin filter any day. For some the update is likely to bring much needed relief and recovery and for others it will mean being thrust into the purgatory of suppressed rankings for months.
