As of early December 2011 .XXX domains have been on “general sale” and with this release many businesses have been left pondering whether or not they should be buying this version of their domain.
Hi. I’m Andy Williams. Today I’m going to be looking at one of the most important changes over the last year that I think is worth looking at, and that’s blocking sites in your own personal search. Basically, what Google has done now is that if you are logged into your Google account, you now have the option to actually block any domains that you don’t feel are relevant. So if you carry out a search for “cars” and you find that one of the domains isn’t truly relevant, isn’t giving you the information that you feel is relevant to what you were looking for, you now have the option to actually block that entire domain.
Five habits appear to have all made a bit of a comeback during 2011. Quite why, I don’t know but returned they have. It’s almost like people are revisiting them not quite believing that search engines once frowned on them.
You may have noticed that Stumbleupon has recently undergone a rather big redesign. The change is aimed at making it easier for people to explore the things that interest. They have also added a new feature called Channels.
However the new design has left regular users slightly uncoordinated with many confused as to how they should use the new version.
Google Plus is Google’s latest punt into the social media platform. To date there are roughly 50 million users already signed up. With the introduction of business pages we can expect this to increase quite rapidly. You may already have a profile set up but have you optimised it?
Just like Facebook profiles, your Google Plus profile can rank. But if you are looking to promote more than just yourself then these pointers may also help you rank for the services you provide, your skills or products.
Christmas is the time of year that a majority of online stores expect to see a spike in trade especially with more and more people now looking to carry out most of their festive shopping online. However, if your site isn’t ready for Christmas you could completely miss the boat.
Too many businesses think it’s enough to upload their products and the Christmas custom will come flooding in. But just like the high street you need to be seen and if you haven’t carried out the needed work on your site, this just isn’t going to happen.
Search Engine Optimisation is now a profession a majority of companies and individuals have heard of. It’s also a profession that a number of people think is easy and they can do themselves by reading a couple of blogs and help files.
Unfortunately this usually leads to out of date methods continuing to do the rounds. With so many self proclaimed experts willing to spread the word on old theories it’s easy to see why so many companies are misled by inaccurate information.
With consumers now more connected through location-based, social and mobile environments, Google held ThinkLocal 2011. A mini conference aimed at reviewing local search and mobile search and how businesses need to control and promote their brands to consumers at the moment they are searching.
This event showcased insights, inspiration and ideas on how to more closely connect businesses with their customers.
The tool is available on a free trial allowing you to have a good play around before you commit to buying. You can download it here: http://www.submiteaze.com/download.jsp

Hi, my name’s Andy. I’m one of the digital marketing executives here at Koozai, and today we’re going to be talking about blogging for business.
Recently we’ve had quite a few customers ringing up asking if they should start blogging, whether they should have a blog on their site and whether it’s going to be beneficial to them. So today I’m going to go through a few pointers, and hopefully this will answer a few basic questions for you.
Social bookmarking can send a lot of traffic to any site. If you do it correctly then you can see a huge increase in visitors. Sites like Stumbleupon, Digg and Reddit can turn into a valuable source of visitors.
The trick is getting your content onto the front page of these types of sites, however a lot depends on you making the right submissions and ensuring the correct information is in place.
