All too often when we sit at the computer, we aren’t writing, we’re typing. It’s a subtle distinction but it’s an important one. Do you ever stare at your screen and know you need to get something down so you just hammer it out? Worse yet, do you ever stare at the screen, knowing you need to get something down, and then open a new tab and start reading the news or something? Writing isn’t always easy, anyone who says otherwise is selling something. You know that blogging is one of the best low cost SEO services, you know that you need to get it done, so let me suggest a little trick that may help you get those old synapses firing once again.
Have you ever heard of Snapchat? It’s an app developed for iOS and Android. Using Snapchat, you can send pictures back and forth with your friends, the twist is that these pictures self-destruct after being opened. The idea behind it is that people will feel more comfortable sending some pictures (cough sexting cough) if they know the pictures will delete themselves after being seen by the intended recipient. The company ran into some problems this week though, and now they’re looking at answering a lot of questions from the public. Let us here at your social media and SEO firm break it down for you.
We have some exciting news here at Wikimotive today. We’re starting a new podcast channel! It’s going to focus on digital marketing interviews, webinars, and other informative (and hopefully entertaining!) segments. We will be releasing the podcast as both video and audio, so you can watch while you eat lunch or listen while you work. You can find the series over at its newly created home, Podcasts.Wikimotive.com.
This post is for everyone out there who is blogging for business or as part of a Company SEO strategy. When you give advice, are you being an artist, or an intellectual? What’s the difference? Well, as the beautiful image above states:
An intellectual says a simple thing in a hard way. An artist says a hard thing in a simple way.
Here at Wikimotive, we believe that when giving advice, you should always strive to be the artist.
Content is the SEO method of choice in 2013. Spam and content spinning are way, way out, and original content that has value to the reader is in. It’s not enough to just create the content though. Even if it’s amazing and insightful, you still need to market your own content, at least a little bit, to get it off the ground. There are a lot of great ways to do this, and today we’re going to talk to you about one of our favorites. It’s a little website called Slideshare, and it will really boost your social SEO.
When it comes to wannabe-writers and reading, Stephen King tells us there is a magic moment, and this is true (even for SEO writers). There is a single intoxicating instant that only readers are privy to, and it comes when you lay down the book, shake your head with wonder, and mutter:
“This guy SUCKS. I Can write better than this!”
SEO is one of the fastest moving fields there is, and you need to be willing and able to adapt just as quickly. Sure, it can be painful to abandon techniques that have worked well for you in the past, but it’s necessary if you want to prosper in the future. Don’t sacrifice your Business’s SEO for the sake of misplaced tradition.
Evolve and prosper, friends.
Social media and search are again colliding, and for once, the news isn’t about Google and Facebook. No, today’s news is about the little brothers of search and social, the ones who aren’t quite as successful but certainly give it there all. Let us here at Wikimotive tell you about it, and how it can affect your small business SEO.
Let’s forget for a moment that the overwhelming majority of SEO companies the average small business owner will encounter provide a service of no value whatsoever. Let’s pretend that the majority of SEO providers are not outright scam artists. I’m only going to address the small percentage of us that provide a real service capable of producing ROI in some form for our clients (I’d wager less than 1% of the industry). For those SEO agencies in the 1%, what tangible evidence can one find that might separate the good from the great? Or maybe, more importantly, is there a single key indicator that could be used to dismiss most of the pack right off the bat when shopping for an SEO firm?
Over the past couple years, the pagination of content has become a popular tactic. For those of you who don’t keep up with asinine marketing terms, pagination in this context just means spreading your content out over multiple pages. This is usually done to increase views and lower bounce rates, both of which are great things for the advertisers on your page, and your own bottom line. It’s a little annoying, but it does have its uses, especially with longer content or listed items. If you want to implement some pagination domination as part of your Business SEO, more power to you, just make sure you’re going about it the right way.
According to Google, there are three ways to paginate content and maintain all your link juice:
