Better Together: Search and Social

Last week at SMX London I spoke at the session “Better Together: Search and Social”. (See Kirsty talking about her session here). The session was about getting a better grip on how the two, search and social, could work better together to get the best results for you as a brand.

In my part of the session I discussed how understanding the interplay between search and social and the different audiences you are targeting makes for the most effective combination.

The slides (downloadable on Slideshare) you can find below this article, in this post I want to highlight the most important elements of my talk. (more…)

Survey: What’s in a name? That which we call SEOs

I may have made an awful SEO based Shakespeare pun for the title of this post but stay with me.

Back in August 2014 Rand Fishkin spoke about how SEO is a description of a role, rather than a title for it* and we are seeing more Organic Performance Managers, Inbound Analysts, Content and Digital Marketers than ever before. (more…)

The Future of Links: Where we were and where are we headed?

This is an expert contribution from Julie Joyce

Flash Back To 2002

Way back in 2002, I wasn’t obsessed with links like I am today. In fact, they were at the bottom of my priority list for any site that I worked on as I was busy doing on-site optimization and running paid ads for the most part. A couple of clients that I worked with did want links but I wasn’t sold on them because the (naughty at times) methods that I was using back then were working. I feel like a grandmother reliving her time in Capri when I think about it. The cloaking! The keyword stuffing! It worked very well until it didn’t.

Links were obviously important but back then, I truly didn’t think I needed to build them.
