We have seen a huge increase of well known retails branch out to mobile sites, from ASOS back in 2010 to Newlook in April this year.
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.
What have JC Penney, Forbes and Overstock got in common? Well, in the eyes of Google they have all been penalised for gaining artificial rankings through linking irregularities. However is there a distinct difference between what their latest victim, Overstock, has done in comparison to the former two companies?
What were Overstock accused of doing?
According to the Wall Street Journal, Overstock were perceived to be ‘gaming’ Google by artificially boosting their rankings. They did this by encouraging US Colleges and Universities to link to their site, in return Overstock were incentivising the educational institutions with a 10% discount for students and employees.

For some, branding is simply a formality, certainly in terms of colouration. However COLOURlovers, a site dedicated to sharing, well, colours, have looked a little deeper into the trends and psychology of online corporate branding.
The findings were somewhat unsurprising, but certainly colourful. Brands are favouring primary colours, with particular focus on red and blue hues. So despite their best efforts to differentiate from one another, evidently there is a certain uniformity in how corporate business branding.
Blogs can have an important role to play in attracting hits to a company’s website.
Marketing professionals are learning that downloadable mobile gaming revenue is to increase by around one-fifth this year, according to new research.
15 years ago, three of the biggest Internet brands were Yahoo, AOL and Netscape; so where did it all go wrong?
Yahoo look like they are starting to tread a well-worn path into online oblivion. Throughout its turbulent history, the company’s stock (both literal and hypothetical) has climbed the highest heights and plunged the lowliest of depths. But has Yahoo finally jumped the shark?
The problem, as with so many other Internet companies, appears to have been precipitated by a merger. In the past, Microsoft’s numerous (hostile) takeover attempts were rebuffed, as were linkups with Ebay and Google; Yahoo seemed to be flying against the prevailing wind and succeeding. Then, last year, they finally agreed to a search merger with Microsoft’s Bing. Water skis on, shark circling.
Before I go any further though, I feel it might be a good idea to explain what ‘jumping the shark’ is. Well, essentially it is the moment at which a successful enterprise takes an unfortunate, and usually unstoppable, nosedive – often as the result of an improbable or desperate last roll of the dice. The phrase comes from a Happy Days episode when the Fonz, somewhat unsurprisingly, jumps over a shark tank, which marked the downturn in the show’s fortunes.
A big topic of conversation in recent weeks has concerned the ongoing debate between search engine giants Google and the British music industry’s trade association. The issue lies in illegal downloading sites and how easy it is to access these within Google’s search engine results pages. The knock-on effect of this means that thousands of people have the ability to download pirated music within just a few clicks on their computer.
