Facebook Simplifying its Advertising Offerings (Phew)

post

No more sponsored stories, questions or offers and more consistent looks and formats Yesterday, Facebook (someone quietly) announced that they are revising their advertising products, and it’s about time. A little while back back, FB got a little ahead of itself and created new slew of new advertising products. You can debate their effectiveness, but one thing is clear, they pretty much served to do nothing but confuse the users. The effort was well- intended, but what likely happened was

Penguin 2.0 is here. What is Pengiun you ask. Penguin is the code name for an update that Google made to their algorithm in April of 2012.

post

In an earlier blog we discussed the estimated value of certain elements and actions (Follows/Fans/Likes/Retweets)  of social media to the brands that seek them. These numbers don’t take into take account the recent trend of buying fake (or at the very least, dubious) followers, (like a lot of digitial marketing guru’s do) particularly on Twitter. This dirty little secret became somewhat known in the mainstream during the 2012 election when reporters uncovered that Mitt Romney’s rather paltry Twitter feed gained 117,000 followers overnight

When it comes to SEO, Content is King

post

Recently responded to  journalist who was looking to talk about the “the rise of importance of content.” My point was that content is  an important part of a good digital marketing strategy and has been for a long time. For years it lived in the realm of PR, often in the guise of thought leadership – by-lined articles, white papers and case studies (I’ve ghost written 100’s of pieces like this for everyone from Chief Surgeons at major hospitals to CEO and Engineers.) Or else
