Today's post is less about educating, and more about being a digital marketing public service announcement. You need to log in to your Google Places account and make sure everything is up do date and submitted to Google.…Continue
Google is always changing, we say that darn near every day on this blog. The thing is, usually those changes are so small, or so buried on the backend of the whole shebang that the world at large doesn’t notice. It’s not often they bust out the big, forward facing guns (the carousel being the last example I can think of offhand) but when they…Continue

All of us in the SEO industry have always had the feeling that Matt Cutts took offense to spam on a personal level. Sure, he always comes across as a cool and level headed sort of guy, but you just know that deep down in…Continue
It seemed that Google had all but given up on keeping PageRank up to date.
In the past year, it had only been updated a single time, back in February of 2013. Well, the long PageRank drought it now over, because as an early Christmas present, Google has updated PageRank across the web. Let's take a look at how the new PageRank landscape…Continue
There's been a lot of talk recently about the keyword (not provided) ordeal that has been increasingly plaguing users of Google Analytics. Pretty much every single blog that talks about digital marketing (including…Continue

In many instances businesses have unfortunately left target marketing to that part of Internet Marketing alone. Although…Continue

Personally, I think that older is often times better (like in the picture above) but if there’s one instance where newer is the way to go, it’s SEO…Continue
