Local businesses have to understand the power of Google Places.

The problem with having an abundance of information available is things can get pretty confusing and your the one that has to go through sorting out the value from all the junk. However, even when your reading content with pure value sometimes your given just too much informat ...
Google is crushing websites that haven’t been following the guidelines. Over the last 2 years millions of websites have received a manual penalty and even been banned from the SERP’s. Banning is usually the extreme measure taken by Google after various warnings have not been taken seriously by the website owner.
This is something that’s been a hot topic for several months. I can’t count the number of emails I get each week about Google Panda and what’s this means for the content. The fact is many people are scared because Google is really crunching down on blogs that have a history of low quality content and poor internal link building.
No one can argue with the power of newsletters and how effective they are in getting re-visitors to your blog. Neil Patel stated himself it’s impossible to get 100,000 people to your blog a month without an active email campaign. However, you need to have the right elements in place when sending emails.

No one can underestimate the power of social media. Marketing has gotten much easier because content is now going viral within hours compared to taking several months.

If you’ve been blogger for several years then you’ve been leveraging several ways to make money.

It takes Google time to index your website and stabilize your website within the SERPs. These fluctuations are normal but you can see drops within the SERPs if you optimize your website incorrectly.
A few weeks ago, I published a post on how to kill your email delivery by making some very common mistakes. Some of the mistakes many bloggers were making consisted of not getting the right approval, sending unrelated content, buying email lists, etc. Hopefully, all of you are not making these mistakes and can now revamp your email marketing efforts.
As your blog grows, you become busier writing content and getting involved in many side projects. There are a handful of blogs I read that are popular in the content marketing, SEO, and general blogging niche with the owners involved in several projects at once. There comes a point where you’ll be simply too busy to care for your blog and will need some help keeping it active.
Social media is the new trend in increasing engagement and blog growth. However, just like everything else, you have to find the right combination of text and/or images that attract visitors to the content you share online.

I’m a strong believer that the point of every content marketing strategy is to create conversions. By obtaining a high conversion rate, you’re obtaining your bottom line, which is to make money. The only barrier coming between you and your content marketing strategy is competition from other bloggers.

Whenever a New Year starts, it brings about new changes within someone’s life, however, it does impact businesses as well in a dramatic way.

Twitter is an awesome tool to drive enormous targeted traffic to your blog. There are two ways that work well for me. First, simply posting on my Twitter wall that has hundreds of relevant followers and secondly, to use the right #hashtags. Twitter is definitely an asset and if you utilize it correctly, you’ll definitely increase engagement, and build loyal followers and even ROI.
