The Importance of Building Your Brand Presence for SEO

By Matt Bassos on October 11, 2019

We’re all aware of just how far SEO strategies have come over the past five or so years. It’s easy to note when you’re trying to improve organic search visibility, from core search algorithm updates like Penguin and Panda, to the continuous smaller search improvements Google regularly implements. Search has changed.

When I first started working as an SEO manager some years ago, I used to hit high keyword rankings just like everyone else. I implemented techniques and tricks that others had employed with great success.

You could say it was still the final era of the ‘Wild West’ of SEO. But even at the beginning of my career, I could sense that a shift was coming. Google’s algorithms got smarter, more successful at weeding out artificial manipulation, and better at nailing a user’s search intent.

Best Tools to Boost Your SEO Efforts

By Jakub Kliszczak on October 4, 2019

Your website is all set up.
The product is ready to ship.
All offers are polished and ready to hand out.

Yet, no customers come in. Why is that? 

In most cases, they simply don’t know how to reach you.

That gives you a few options. Invest in ads, hire influencers, reach out to your audience directly, or… Invest in SEO!

More and more marketers and business owners decide to double down on SEO because it helps create an evergreen source of incoming customers. At the same time, as SEO gets more popular, it also gets more competitive. Thus, it’s important that you choose the right tools to get your SEO up and running.

Improve Paid Marketing With Bing

By Chris Turner on September 6, 2019

Why Bing? Why Not Just Google?

There’s no denying that Microsoft has always been a leader in computer technology and applications. Microsoft has given us Microsoft Office 365 and its predecessors, the Xbox, Skype, a number of digital enterprise solutions such as Microsoft Azure and Microsoft SQL Server, and much more. However, Microsoft’s search engine hasn’t had the same success. Despite the release of Bing and the team at Microsoft keeping the platform’s technology current in the new mobile landscape, they have never moved Google out of the top spot. Bing’s features, setup, and results pages closely resemble those of Google. That being said, there’s a shared understanding in the SEO/SEM industry that if a website is optimized for Google, it’s fairly optimized for Bing, too.

By Shubh Sheth on August 16, 2019

If you’re looking to start an ecommerce website, you’ve probably heard of Shopify, WooCommerce, and Magento. As three of the most common ecommerce platforms on the web, all three offer basic solutions for businesses that want to sell their products and services online.
