Ever at the forefront of innovative technology, it originally seemed that Google had decided to take on Apple’s Siri with Google Now, thought briefly to be their own mobile voice assistant. However the plot thickens, and it seems there is much more to Google Now than that as we’ll investigate today.
Join me as I take a look at the trends in content marketing so far this year and look forward at what 2013 holds for the rapidly changing digital landscape.
2012 saw an avalanche of updates to Google’s algorithms, and I don’t expect 2013 to be any different. Many websites were caught out and penalised for SEO tactics that at one time would have been commonplace and successful. Following this huge crack down on any ‘unnatural’ optimisation activity many site owners and SEOs have been left thinking about how to avoid being penalised in the future. In essence, ‘future proofing’ your SEO.

The Internet is a hub of extensive information, and we choose to access this information in a number of ways.Gone are the days when you could only access the Internet via a desktop computer, as technology has changed and enabled web browsing via tablets, iPods and Smartphones.
There is more and more talk these days about optimising your website for mobile search for smartphone and tablet devices. Whilst sites need to be optimised for desktop users and search engines, it’s important that other media aren’t being left out.
As more people are buying into tablet devices, we are beginning to see a shift in the way that we access our information. Some people buy into a product as soon as it is released and others buy into a product a later on in time when they have established that technology and changing habits will inevitably move on. However, it’s important that site owners aren’t getting left behind.
Today we welcome a post from Text Magic who take a look at Google AdWords changes that affect mobile websites.
