There is no need to stress more the fact that Google has just made an innovative update: Penguin 4.0 – a real-time, granular algorithm update that allows both real-time penalties and incredibly quick recoveries. However, with such a big controversy around this update, what we need to dwell on more are case studies and analyses in order to have the best understanding of the late ...
There is a lot of buzz and fuzz regarding the influence of shares, comments, likes, etc. on SEO in general. Yet, the question that is on everyone’s lips is actually: “Are social signals a ranking factor?” There have been lots of discussions around this topic, both pros and cons; even some studies were conducted on it. Yet, no clear light has been shed on the matter.
Long content or short content? Which one is better? What is the case? The more the merrier, or less is more? Well, the answer is rather complicated and needs a bit of unpacking. If you are looking for a short answer you need to know that there is no such thing. Long and short content alike can be better, depending on the context and on your needs: rankings, conversions, followe ...
Creating high quality content is a highly important aspect, not only for gaining high ranks but firstly for making users or readers happy. Yet, we all know that running a blog with constant valuable and high quality content might sometimes be difficult as it is a resource-consuming process. Therefore, why not getting the best out of the content that you’ve already worked on? ...
Every site owner’s dream (and goal) is to rank as high as possible for their target audience. Every search engine’s dream (and goal) is to make sure that the most relevant websites rank the highest. But how is that relevancy built and interpreted? Does it have anything to do with what you say? That much we know to be true.

Bad marketing is, most of the time, simply bad strategy. For instance, it might be tempting to think that all you need to succeed today is a strong social media presence and fan base. However, that would be a huge mistake on your part, strategically. Sure, social media might be a good place to promote a product or service, but there isn’t really any return on investment on that ...

With the rise of social media, online advertising, and the ever-present growth of technology, emails seem to have been left in the dust. At least, that’s what some sources would have you think. The reality is very different. Email marketing is alive and well, and more importantly, it’s evolving to take advantage of today’s modern technology.
Although primarily created to improve user experience, evergreen content has, in fact, other thrilling benefits as well. There’s a vicious circle here – a kind we like. The more hands-on your content is and the more it addresses a need, the more it becomes relevant in terms of ranking, following the exigence of Google’s guidelines and algorithmic updates.
We’ve all grown used to wonders of technology in this century therefore it’s very hard to dazzle anyone these days. We, probably like any other developing business, wondered what is to be done in this context? What is the way to success or the path to growth in such a competitive market where users are overwhelmed with great apps and tools designed to make their personal and pr ...
It’s almost impossible to come up with a digital marketing strategy without consistent information regarding the trends in the niche. And if you think that it’s only what works that matters, you may not get too far. In order to develop a way to leverage customers’ and influencers’ behavior to your advantage, you’ll have to make yourself comfortable in the office chair and sta ...
The human brain is capable of handling 1016 processes per second and yes, it’s perfectly fine if this freaks you out (it scares me too). It’s because of this particular feature that your content has to generate engagement. Our brains won’t focus on something unless it’s going to seem highly useful or very eye-candy, so pushing your articles into your reader’s’ eyes can be quite a challenge.
Neo: If you’re killed in the matrix, you die here? (The Matrix, 1999) We often make a distinction between the virtual and the real world. We will ask whether something happened online or “actually happened”, as if the online world were a parallel universe in which actions have no impact on our current lives. But the truth could not be further from that.
The trick with ranking is not to force it. When everybody’s trying to rank for the same keywords, there’s not much room for long term development. This is where you can improve – find keywords semantically related to your niche, but not necessarily used by your competitors. It’s in Google’s best interest to suggest semantic results, as closely related to the search query as possible.
You might be familiar with the epic space opera Star Wars. Many interesting dialogues have been initiated throughout the series, yet a particular one from Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, comes to my mind now. It’s a dialogue between Obi-Wan and Luke and it goes like this: Obi-Wan: “So what I told you was true, from a certain point of view.
The broken pages and link reclamation technique might be familiar to you as they are quite old school strategies.

If you’re into gadgets (and since you’re following us, chances say you are), you’ve probably watched at least one “unboxing” video already. You get to see someone – usually just someone’s hands – take out something from its original box, remove the wrapping, maybe even turn the device on, all this while an off-screen voice tells about how it looks and how it feels.
There is a place where we all go when it comes to finding answers about various things on the planet, from the definition of the sewing needle to the history of money.
