Top Video-sharing Sites

0

Too bad they didn’t have videos and video-sharing sites all throughout history. Can you imagine if they would have had these back when Columbus was sailing the ocean blue? Envision all the astonishing moments in history we would now have on record, with no disputes, if there had been YouTube and all those other awesome video-sharing websites we have now. Yes, in today’s online marketing and video-sharing trends, there are a whole slew of these great sites out there. The sad fact remains, though, that many people still think YouTube is all there is. And that couldn’t be further from the truth. Here’s some information on some of the best video-sharing websites that are available today … besides YouTube. (more…)

The Lifespan of a Blog Post

0

Blah blah bloooogggg. Blogs are multiplying these days like fruit flies. You didn’t know it, but when you went to bed last night, there were no bloggers in your house, and this morning, even your cat’s got a blog. One blogger even used the term ‘clog’ in place of blog, saying that there are so many blogs that they’re clogging up the web. But why? Why are blogs so prolific, especially when there are so many other ways of expressing yourself? It’s simple, really. People love blogging because, well, it’s cool! Having your own blog is quite possibly the greatest method of expressing yourself ever. Seriously! With your own blog, you have complete control. You have a means of expressing yourself, of letting go, of being totally free and creative. But hold on, ’cause that’s not all blogging is good for. Blogs are excellent promotion for your business. They can promote you as an expert. And they can even help you to help others. There’s just one drawback from blogging, and it really doesn’t have anything to do with the poor blog itself. The only real problem with blogging is that most people abandon their blogs after a very short period of time. (And maybe that’s where the ‘clog’ part comes in.) So, here’s some information about the lifecycle of a blog post, and how you, as a blogger, can avoid becoming another sad statistic in the blogging game. (more…)

Social Media Audiences

Social Media Audiences

0

You swear you’re the only person on Earth who isn’t on social media. Your friends are all on Facebook. You constantly hear your kids talk about that Twitter thing or that telegram … no wait, that’s not it … Instagram, that’s it. Even the people at work are asking you about some pin something or other. It seems that everybody’s on social media except you. But are they really? Is social media so huge that it truly does feel like you’re the only one who isn’t using it? Quite possibly. Most recent studies show that nearly 70 percent of all Internet users utilize social media. Nearly 85 percent of people under 40 who routinely use the Internet are also on one or more social media sites. In fact, here’s how your family, friends, coworkers, customers, and all of your neighbors are using social media. (more…)

Web Content

Lifespan of Web Content

0

If you’re thinking everyone has a blog but you, you’re probably right. But don’t worry about it, ’cause not everyone is managing or writing on their blog. In fact, most people abandon their blogs very shortly after they start them. Of course, blogs aren’t the only kind of web content on the Internet. There are a ton of different types of web content, and frankly, no one really knows how many. If you talk to one SEO expert, you’ll get one answer, and if you talk to another, you’ll get a totally different answer. But one thing they’ll probably all agree on is that your web content needs to be continuously refreshed in order to remain relevant and interesting, and most important, remain high up in the search engines. The lifespan of web content isn’t an exact science, but there are ways of measuring how long your site’s content will last. And that means there are ways of determining how often you need to revise it in order to keep visitors coming back for more. (more…)

Lifespan of a Video

Lifespan of a Video

It’s almost become the Holy Grail of videos … to get yours to go viral. If you could only come up with one video that would germinate, grow, and infect the globe! It almost seems like a ticket to stardom in the video world, getting yours to be shared in what seems like an endless propagation until just about everyone on Earth has seen it. But how long do those viral videos really last? What’s the average lifespan of any video, for that matter? And if you do get your video to be shared nationwide or even worldwide, what happens then? How long will your video enjoy its heyday? (more…)

Things SEOs Miss

0

Every SEO expert knows it … SEO has changed in the past few years. The old rules are being replaced with new ones. And the problem with the new ones? Apparently, there are no rules. Okay, that’s an exaggeration. Of course, there are rules. The problem with the new rules is that some SEOs don’t know which rules that apply today, indeed, won’t apply tomorrow. Some SEO companies are even seeing SEOs who are still playing by those old rules. So, what are some of the things that SEOs might be missing in today’s online marketing trends? (more…)

SEO Bucket

The SEO Bucket

0

When you think of a bucket, you get a picture of something that holds a bunch of stuff, right? A bucket is a pail you can carry a load of just about anything in. A bucketful is a large quantity of something. A bucket list is all the things you want to do before you kick … well, there’s another phrase that includes the word ‘bucket.’ But what, then, is the SEO bucket? The meaning of the SEO bucket is the same as the other meanings (minus that last one, of course). The SEO bucket includes everything that goes into search engine optimization. All the enterprise, actions, all those big and little things that go into creating the best SEO in order to receive the highest page rankings … that’s the SEO bucket. So, just what are some of those actions that SEO experts perform that can get your website to the coveted number-one spot? (more…)

Lessons from Panda

Lessons from Panda

0

February 2011 … it was the shot heard round the world … for SEO, anyway. That’s when Google first loosed Panda on the Internet world, and nothing’s been the same since. Yes sir, for years and years, the ‘world wide web’ (as it was called back in the olden days) was a happy place to be. Users frolicked in Information Shangri-la, and website owners sure were merry about all that frolicking. Google’s PageRank methods used things like relevant links to decide whether a site was worthy of preeminence; websites that contained content germane to searches ranked highest; and site owners vied for top spots by designing attractive sites with the most pertinent information. But then came the black hatters, and users began building hostility toward Google. So, Google came up with Panda. Panda made some people happy, and it made some people sad. Yes, it brought with it both glee and destruction. So how much has Google Panda really changed SEO? And what are top SEO experts saying about it now? (more…)

Top Heavy Website

Is My Website Top Heavy?

0

Top heavy. It just sounds bad … and it is. In fact, it’s so bad when it comes to your business’s website, that Google will penalize you for it. In online marketing trends, what does it mean to have a top-heavy website, you ask? Think about this. You’re sitting at your computer and you need some information. You type some relevant keywords into the search engine. You click on the first site that catches your fancy, and it’s nothing but ads halfway down the first page. You’re disgusted because it takes too long to get to the information you need … you know, the actual content … so, you swiftly click out of that site and go to the second one on the page … and then the third … until you’re so mad you want to spit at the search engine. But you don’t. (Because it is, after all, your computer.) But, there is one thing you can do, and that’s try a different search engine. Google and the other search engines out there hate that. Naturally, they want you to keep using their search engines, so they penalize sites that have too many distractions at the top that frustrate users. So how do you know if your website is top heavy and what can you do about it? (more…)

White Hat SEO

Changing Trends in White Hat SEO

0

These days, page rankings are all about quality content. It’s only been a few years since Google introduced Panda, but that algorithm changed Internet searches forever. Some websites lost their top spots, and there were even businesses that lost millions due to its release. And with the recent unleashing of Panda 4.0, the stakes have gotten even higher. So, if you thought the changes in search engine algorithms affected websites in 2011, you may want to brace yourself for coming white hat trends for 2014 and 2015. SEO experts seem to agree, though, that quality sites have nothing to worry about. And since quality is what your business’s website should be shooting for anyway, these upcoming trends will probably be good news. (more…)
