The new feature allows up to five MCCs to link to an account, what’s more there is now no distinction between UI/API and API-only links.
Following the hype that surrounded the official Launch of Google +1 at the end of March, this post considers how it has the potential to impact search and some of the other issues surrounding it, ultimately asking if it really help increase the relevancy of search results?
Google might well be one of the most recognisable brands in the world, but when it comes to generating widespread buzz, it’s the mysterious doodle that often provides their most useful asset.
The Google home page is renowned for its simplicity. Just a white screen, search box and the logo – that’s it. But over the years this simplicity has been regularly tampered with. The logo undergoes strange transformations to mark special anniversaries and other worldly events.
Guest bloggers can help drive a website up the ranking of search engines, it has been suggested.
Duplicate content is always a bit of a thorny issue in SEO. Whilst it’s fairly clear cut when a website copies text straight from a secondary source, there has been questions raised over the impact of having numerous domains for one site.
Whilst it has been widely accepted for some time that having individual URLs all leading to the same page may be harmful to your ranking, Google have now broken their silence and suggested quite the opposite. Although in true Google style they stopped short of saying anything too definitive.
You’ve no doubt looked up and down your high street recently, only to discover closing down sales, boarded up shops and empty premises. This has been a continued trend of late, with a large number of well known brands either falling into administration or having to shut their doors.
From Our Price to Rumbelows and now Barratts to La Senza, history has not been kind on the high street. The modern retail landscape demands an online presence, at the very least. For those retailers who are making a success of it, the business strategy of bricks and clicks seems to be the answer.
On Sunday 23rd October myself, Sam and Ben will be attending the speakers’ dinner for Searchlove, with the conference to follow on Monday and Tuesday. For those curious about the event, or who want a Searchlove preview, we’ve put together our thoughts on the topics and idea’s we’d like to see covered on the day.
The issue arose back before Valentine’s Day, when Interflora noticed something amiss when customers searched for ‘Interflora Flowers’ within search engines. They noticed that Marks & Spencer were showing for their brand related key terms within the paid-for search results.
Theoretically, Super Savvy Me is a fantastic site for consumers to rate a wide range of products and enjoy decent discounts. However, you don’t need to scratch too far beneath the surface to expose the potentially misleading nature of the site.
I have to admit, I had never heard of it before a recent national radio advertising campaign. There again, I’m not exactly in their target market. Super Savvy Me is predominantly aimed at female Internet users. Offering, in their own (Meta) words, ‘Ideas, inspiration & wisdom to help you make the most out of life.’
As if local SERPs weren’t enough, what with Places integration and ever-expanding descriptions, Google is now rolling out City Pages. This new innovation is designed to provide a locals-eye-view of any destination. With inhabitants providing reviews on businesses within the city limits.
This is being rolled out in a few U.S. cities currently (Portland, Austin, Madison and San Diego to be exact), with information built up over a number of months and using a variety of quirky techniques. Essentially the idea is to develop a broad overview of what is actually happening locally, rather than simply relying on algorithms.
