What does the ‘Accelerated Mobile Pages’ tab on Webmaster track? Accelerated Mobile Pages or AMP is a Google project launched in Oct 2015 to allow web pages to be build on this specialized HTML subset for quicker loading on mobile devices. In other words, AMP pages offer a better user experience without the flamboyant ads, social handles and related links that take up precious space from the already restricted mobile screen space. On Google Webmaster, you can use the AMP tab to track the performance of these pages. Before you jump to conclusions, the AMP Project is so far at its initial launch phase, where its use is restricted to a group of publishers in partnership with Google to demonstrate the impact of this feature for mobile users. However, it will soon launch for general use by webmasters and businesses to optimize web pages. This could be a great tool to improve mobile experience of web pages that load faster and look cleaner to the audience. Below is a quick analysis of AMP project has turned out for publishers who are using this AMP project. Take a look at the same story on a AMP page (left) and a non AMP page and notice the difference in how they appear.

It is not just controlling the organic search, it involves reaching the right audience with right channels and tools. This is the reason why digital marketers consider content to be the ‘king’.

One of the nightmares of an entrepreneur is to have phone calls or emails from his company’s marketing team to potential leads be treated as intrusion, and turned down, worse dreaded! As much as we get used to it, the aggressive outbound marketing campaigns by SEOs are becoming more spammy in nature as your potential customers see it (and begin to resent it). The rising use of spam folders, plugins to control spammy emails/comments and ad blockers are a natural outcome to filter out the noise. As such, marketing your products and services more effectively to your audience needs thought and a strategy that is more welcome to your audience, something that is less intrusive. Trying to sell too early or too frequently in a marketing pitch can spoil the enthusiasm of a user starting to get interested in what you have to say. Its time you offered a value add to your potential customer for free, without asking for anything in return. If they see the value, they will respond positively to your call to action. Inbound Marketing is the new SEO strategy ahead in 2016, an effective plan that is more considerate of a customer’s time and patience. The second best outcome of a sale is attention and engagement, which an effective inbound marketing campaign has the potential to guarantee. Best Ways of Inbound Marketing As the name suggests, inbound marketing is a marketing strategy that invites and earns your audience’s attention to your website instead of marketing associates reaching out to customers proactively through calls, emails or personal visits. Hence it requires tools or content that...

As Nicholas Chimonas published his 2016 State of Link Building Survey via Moz, I have here cut down the 18 minute read (for the sake of SEOs wanting to save time) to less than a 3 minute read, so you can pretty well extract the jist of what Nicholas so well put down in his rather lengthy but informative piece. Clearly Link Building has been written on and off for months now, and still it remains one of the most engaging activities of SEOs wanting to optimize websites and webpages of clients or for self promotion. The survey shows some not-so-surprising facts about the current state of Link building in 2016. As he clearly states, the 2016 Link Building survey questions are slightly different than its previous years to reflect the evolution of link building into a more “legitimate and integrated” channel of online marketing. Below are the data extracted from the very SEO survey on Link Building Moz conducted earlier this year. (The questions did not necessarily appear in order.) The above questions are for profiling the participants who take part in the survey. The questions below are a direct overview of SEOs opinions and actual link building practice insights. The above two survey responses clearly state that for link building through content marketing remains one of the most popularly used (and sometimes abused) mode of spreading links. Talking about SEO tools that are most widely used for digital marketing, the list below is a clear indicator of the powerful tools SEOs rely on to manage their SEO campaigns effectively. Google Analytics clearly tops the chart as the...
