This month we’ve seen some really interesting movements in terms of market share for search engines on both sides of the Atlantic. In some instances it’s business as usual, but in the case of the UK markets, some search engines have thrown up a few surprises.
You don’t have to search for too long before coming across a website that has been badly written. You know the ones; too much or too little content, mistakes everywhere, and a severe lack of punch. This isn’t helping your website whatsoever, so here’s what you need to focus on to avoid a major copywriting fail.
As we all know, digital marketing is an ever evolving industry. It’s rare for a day to pass without some form of industry developments or new strategies to consider – which leads nicely onto article marketing.
It’s business as usual when it comes to April’s search engine market share statistics. Read More
It appears that the online advertising industry has bucked the trend amongst many other sectors in the UK. Despite a gloomy outlook with the current UK economy, advertising on the Internet appears to be thriving.
If you didn’t know already, Google have followed up from their previous television adverts with yet another one of their well styled and slick commercials; this time promoting their social network, Google+.
So, another year has passed and some classic April Fools gags have been made (I think Google have won this year with their litany of gags, from the Google 8-Bit Maps for NES to the YouTube collection on DVD).
Today is the day that Friends Reunited, the first UK social network, relaunches. The former social networking giant has given itself a lick of paint, and a whole new feel to it, focussing on nostalgia and memories.
What’s difficult to believe is that Friends Reunited, which launched in 2000, was the UK’s first social network and went on to become one of the most popular too; in 2005 it boasted over 15 million users. Then the MySpace’s and the Facebook’s of this world took off, and the rest as they say is history. However, Friends Reunited is back, but will it work?
In the US market, Google and Microsoft’s Bing have seen gains, whilst Yahoo and AOL actually saw a drop in their market share. The gap between Bing and Yahoo has widened, but by how much? In the UK, Google have seen a slight drop, with all other search engines benefiting. Does this show us the potential for a more competitive market? Here’s what we found this month.
Have you ever wondered just how valuable content is? If you stop to consider the sheer volume of content that is produced on quality blogs and online publications and the revenues this generates, its true worth becomes immediately apparent.
For users, this can be the quality of the content that’s produced, so much so it keeps them coming back day after day. For businesses, it’s the volume of hits these websites receive. As a result they are prepared to pay big bucks – which can be seen in the recent buyouts of blogs and online magazines.
