  • The 8 time- & money-saving SEO tools I pay for (& 17 more I use for free)

    In a recent interview with SEO and Credo founder John Doherty on Dan Shure’s excellent Experts on the Wire podcast, he mentioned the positive response he’d gotten to a post he’d done this summer on the SEO Tools he uses. He mentioned that it seemed like a pretty simple post idea, but it made sense to me that it would get traction, because John is a smart writer and marketer.

    The end of the year is already here! I’ll never cease to be amazed at how quickly time flies when you’re having fun.

Let’s have a look at the PPC buzz for this week.

  • Weekly PPC Update: Happy Holidays! Edition

    It’s finally here: the end result of months of preparation. For some of us, that means today is the day to frantically scramble to tie up all those loose ends to ensure that everything is executed flawlessly tomorrow. For others, it’s a day to sit back, have a beer or glass of wine, and laugh at the rest of the poor saps who failed to plan.

  • Weekly PPC Update: One Week to Go Edition

    One week from today, the moment will have arrived: all the buildup of the past four to six weeks (or, you know, since July for those of you who start shopping early) will be unwrapped in approximately 2.5 seconds, at approximately 4:30 a.m. (if you have young kids). For those of you who don’t have young kids, you’ll probably still be nursing a hangover at about 1:30 p.m.

  • Weekly PPC Update: The Countdown Begins Edition

    It’s that time of the week again: Time for your weekly PPC tips, news, and insights. Before we dive in, though, a bit of housekeeping business. As you may (or may not) have realized, Christmas just so happens to fall on a Friday this year. I reluctantly acknowledge that most of you probably have better things to do that morning than to spend them with yours truly (sniff).

  • What Bernie Sanders Can (Kind Of) Teach Us About SEO In 2016 & Beyond

    Full disclosure: I love Bernie Sanders. I think he’s a smart, principled guy. He was also the subject of my favorite SNL skit this year; he even does his own impressions! While Bernie Sanders hasn’t personally taught me anything about SEO, a website promoting his presidential candidacy can teach us a good lesson about how businesses can think about SEO as we move into 2016 (and beyond).

  • Weekly PPC Update: Giving Thanks for Holiday PPC Edition

    Well, this is it folks…it’s the last Weekly PPC Update before the official kickoff to the holiday shopping season. By this time next week, you’ll be idly clicking around your AdWords dashboard to see if your ads are getting clicks and converting while you shamelessly partake in opportunity after opportunity to induce another leftover-Thanksgiving-dinner-stupor. It’s all good. I don’t judge.

  • Weekly PPC Update: Candy Coma Edition

    Now that we’ve all emerged from our candy comas (or for some of us, still working on reducing the kids’ stash to a reasonable level…sacrifices, you know), retailers have removed all traces of Halloween and replaced them with – not Thanksgiving – but Christmas. Yes, the official kickoff to the holiday season is now, seemingly, November 1st.

  • Weekly PPC Update: Tricks and Treats Edition

    It’s time for pumpkin smashing and late-night mischief – um, I mean trick or treating. Can’t do all that crazy stuff these days like we used to do without getting into major hot water. But that’s okay, candy makes it all good, right? After Halloween immediately begins the big rush to Thanksgiving, followed by the busiest shopping season of the year.

  • How To Increase Qualified B2B SEO Traffic In 2016 & Beyond

    Many B2B marketers — particularly those selling to enterprise companies and targeting specific job titles — struggle with the task of generating SEO traffic that actually reaches their target audience. There’s often a perception that these types of purchases (big ticket items bought by large companies) aren’t something that key stakeholders are likely to search for.

  • Weekly PPC Update: Leveling the Playing Field Edition

    The world of pay-per-click advertising has come a long way since its early days, and opportunities are now abundant for both small businesses and major enterprises. Sure, the big dogs still have an astronomical advertising and marketing budget bigger than a small business’ lifetime earnings so far, but that’s not to say that they have a distinct advantage when it comes to online marketing.
