I had the great pleasure of visiting the ionSearch conference today, hosted in the wonderful city of Leeds. This two day conference showcases the very best in search from around the globe, and I decided to share some of the great tips I’ve learned so far.
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.’
This weekend saw the 7th Think Visibility conference with a mixture of presentations and networking. From Analytics, to video, branding to SEO the conference took in a lot of different streams and provided a fantastic insight into what you should be doing for each of these disciplines.
For those who didn’t attend, or who want a recap, we’ve compiled our favourite tips of the day.
The last few months have seen further high profile UK businesses announcing that they have entered administration. Comet, Jessops, HMV and Blockbuster have been the most recent of a line of high street retailers going under.The company directors themselves, news channels, press and media were quick to blame a variety of factors, including the growth of Internet shopping.
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?
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.
If you have seen a few extra words crop up in your Google Maps listing, you’re not hallucinating. The latest in a long series of tweaks has seen the search engine integrate descriptive keywords into the SERPs listing.
This new feature, which is simply a number of descriptive words or phrases, is designed to make a business stand out. Therefore it will look to highlight the terms that best describe an individual company, rather than the more generalised keywords you can expect to see in SERPs.
This month I want to talk about how Traditional Brands can and actually are investing in digital media and services, not just their own websites. With the boom in online shopping and digital media as a whole, how do existing offline brands get involved? I believe they should all be making an effort to get a piece of the digital market in order to attempt to survive the downturn we are seeing in High Street shopping and services.
