  1. There are at least four distinct types of SEO practitioners I have identified over the past decade. It is likely that most people will be a blend of different types, because everyone’s experiences are unique. For a search optimization program to be successful it must also be specific and clear. Each project should be treated like a special snowflake. If you are aware of where your institution’s resources and strengths are, you’ll know which type of practitioner to work with. For example, you have a technical product in the b2b space. You’re working with a full front end web development team, but they are all mostly working on making the product and therefore loathe website change requests. The technical SEO is probably your best bet fit, because they’ll work efficiently with a developer to quickly enact code changes. Some technical SEOs even know which tools to run on a CMS for sweet results.

  3. The rapid evolution of different social media channels has now changed the life of tech-savvy people. Now, they get in touch with their friends, relatives, neighbors, colleagues, etc, at any time and share their opinions easily. The availability of millions of people on social media channels has encouraged entrepreneurs, business organizations, and firms to use social media channels as a free marketing tool. This helps them to increase traffic to their sites and convert visitors into leads. But, how one can do that? Just have a look at some key points detailed here below: #1. Create A Separate Social Media Marketing Calendar Due to the availability of numerous social media channels, you find it very a challenging task to arrange quality content to perform different SMO activities. On a number of occasions, you fail to optimize your social media pages, which affects the flow of traffic to your site. Therefore, first of all, decide which social media channels you want to use for the promotion of your content. This will help you to create a separate social media marketing calendar and follow that strictly for the expected results. For example: If you want to use Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Linkedin, and Pinterest, you can easily arrange the content for that. In this way, you can easily provide enough content to the targeted audience and keep them visiting your E-commerce site. #2. Create Short And Appealing Content Most of the social media users are not interested in going through long and plain text content. They prefer image content, small text content with eye-catching titles and subtitles, videos, etc. Based on your user’s need, you should create concise and user-centric content to attract social media users. This will help you to trigger user-engagement on your site’s social media pages on a large scale. For example- if you introduce your newly launched products to the social media audience via an infographic, it helps you to get more pageviews on your site. In order to create valuable content easily and quickly, you can take the help of certain Social Media tools. #3. Attach Social Media Sharing Buttons to your site Google, the world’s leading search engine, considers the social media presence of websites as an important factor when they determine their usefulness and relevancy for visitors. If a website has a strong presence on leading social media sites, it is possible that Google may display the site or its pages up in its search results than that of those sites with no social presence. Therefore, if you want to increase the visibility of your E-commerce site and gain a steady flow of traffic, you should add social media buttons to your site. For example- If you run a Magento E-commerce site, you can add social sharing buttons to your site using Magento extensions. Whenever, you update your site with a new content, share it on all social media channels. If users share your posts further, you get its SEO benefits totally free of cost. #4. Conduct Live Chats People are always eager to communicate directly with the owners of famous E-commerce brands and share their thoughts easily. They also want to get their complicated issues resolved. Therefore, you should conduct live chat sessions on social media channels and communicate with your audience. For example- you can start Facebook live streaming to promote your products/services & answer the legitimate questions raised by customers. This helps you to improve the user experience up to a great extent. Pleased visitors like to visit your E-commerce site or its social media pages frequently and show great interest in your offerings. #5. Attach Social Media Links In Newsletters E-retailers do Email marketing to increase their customer base and generate leads. In the E-commerce landscape, it is a very difficult to convince people to sign up your newsletters. But, if you add social media links to newsletters, you get benefited in two different ways: You introduce your products and services to clients You can start interactive discussions with the audience upon their request. This helps you to earn more social media likes/followings and increase traffic to your site up to a great extent. For example- to run Email marketing campaigns for Magento E-commerce sites, you can use a Magento extension.

  7. If you want to know what is Ethereum and how it works and what it can be used for, without going deep into the technical abyss, this guide is perfect for you. At its simplest, Ethereum is an open software platform based on blockchain technology that enables developers to build and deploy decentralized applications. One key difference in open blockchains (such as bitcoin and ethereum) is that users can generate an identification number for their funds at any time. They don’t need to wait for a bank to approve a bank account application and present the credit card. What is Ethereum? Before it is possible to understand ethereum, it helps to first understand the world wide web. Now, our private information, passwords and financial details are all mainly stored on other people’s computers – from servers and clouds owned by companies such as Amazon, Facebook or even Google. This setup has numerous conveniences, since these businesses deploy teams of experts to help secure and store this information, and eliminate the prices that have bandwidth and hosting. But with this advantage, there’s also vulnerability. As we have learned, either a hacker or even a government may gain unwelcome access to your documents without your knowing, by changing or assaulting a third-party support, meaning that they could steal, flow or change significant info. Brian Behlendorf, founder of the Apache Web Server, which has gone so far as to label this centralized design the “original sin” of the net. Some like Behlendorf claim the Net was always intended to be decentralized, and also a splintered movement has sprung up about using new resources, like blockchain technology, to help accomplish this objective. Ethereum is among the most recent FinTech technologies to join this motion. Read more: https://monetize.info/what-is-ethereum/#ixzz4loLGPs8D Follow us: @monetizeinfo on Twitter | monetize on Facebook

Website: www.ariadpartners.com/blog | Follow Brenda on Twitter | Add Brenda on Linkedin I’ve found, particularly for B2B lead generation, that LinkedIn has had the great revenue impact for me and my clients. Twitter tends to be the top source for traffic, but LinkedIn converts at a higher rate. Facebook tends to serve as a place of engagement. It seems to be where people comment on what they like or don’t like about the brand, vs a top source of traffic or leads. When I launched my business, one of my first clients found me via a LinkedIn search and contacted me through LinkedIn. That one client has been worth over a quarter of a million dollars in revenue and remains a client today. I’ve seen this same story over and over both in my business, and with my clients as well. Having been an early adopter of LinkedIn, I’ve seen significant changes in the audience and how LinkedIn is used. It can seem like it’s moving more towards job seekers then business relationship platform. However, it’s still has value as a prospecting tool. For that purpose, here are some tips: Keep your profile clearly focused on what you and your business does for your clients, the value you bring and results. Use the keywords people who are searching for your business would use. Leverage the many tools available such as Pulse and Showcase. Reach out to people to connect with a personal message that finds common ground and a reason for them to connect to you. As with any social media platform, seek to help and educate first and foremost. If you can afford the cost, leverage Sales Navigator to build a prospecting list. Different social media platforms serve different purposes. Twitter is excellent for increase reach and driving traffic to your site. But, revenue matters and for that, LinkedIn rules the day for B2B businesses. Sam Hurley Sam Hurley is a #1 ranked Digital Marketer, Personal Branding expert & Founder of OPTIM-EYEZ.

As for now, our suite contains over 20 tools for SEO, PPC, SMM, content and PR specialists, and we keep adding new features. With this huge volume of updates, our users often struggle to follow them all and to understand which options solve their needs the best way. We realized we needed to come up with a solution that will get across the core value of SEMrush features to our users in a concise yet entertaining way. An evergreen choice would have been writing a post about it. But we were aiming to involve our users into the discovery process, so one-way communication was not going to be enough. This is why we decided to make this process interactive and, in addition, to connect the campaign to a newsworthy event in order to increase the viral effect. The solution With Easter approaching, we thought this was a great occasion to associate our campaign with. We decided to incorporate the educational process into an Easter egg hunt: the users were challenged to find 15 “Easter eggs” hidden inside different SEMrush tools. To get to the egg, a person had to complete a certain action: generate a report, set up a project or read a user guide. A landing page explaining the rules was developed, and a dedicated hashtag #semrushegghunt was created. After the campaign (which lasted 2 weeks) we wrote a detailed post in our SEMrush blog explaining where all the eggs were hidden. As for social networks, our main focus was Twitter and it brought us fantastic results. The result In terms of audience reach, this was the most successful SEMrush campaign ever. We got: 2,444 tweets with the campaign hashtag 1,525 participants 2,330,802 unique users who were shown at least one tweet with the campaign hashtag 8,575,612 times the tweets with the campaign hashtag were shown to the users Along with the noticeable coverage, the quality of audience involved in the campaign was excellent. We had both marketing experts and “amateurs” taking part in our campaign. Sixteen per cent of the users who were tweeting about the hunt had over 1,000 followers. What’s more, we had some amazing shoutouts from opinion leaders, which also contributed to raising our brand awareness.

The second factor that tends to make the Bitcoin distinctive is the fact that it comes with its personal digital currency. Paypal and Visa conduct transactions in standard currencies like the U.S. dollars. The Bitcoin network, nevertheless, conducts transactions inside a new monetary unit, also known as Bitcoin. 2. Who produced Bitcoin? That is a question that at the moment nobody can answer for certain but you will find rumors about. Bitcoin was created by an individual who indentified himself as “Satoshi Nakamoto.” Whilst the name sounds Japanese, Bitcoin’s creator by no means supplied any individual particulars. He collaborated with other early Bitcoin fans via on-line forums but by no means met with other members from the Bitcoin neighborhood face to face. Then, beginning in 2010 he steadily decreased his involvement within the currency’s improvement. His final recognized communication came in 2011. We do not know who Satoshi Nakamoto is, but we do understand that if he ever surfaces, he will probably be an very wealthy man. Millions of bitcoins had been produced within the currency’s initial two years, and Satoshi most likely owns a huge selection of a large number of them. At today’s costs, he could be a millionaire numerous occasions more than. Prior to leaving the scene, Nakamoto passed his torch to a mild-mannered developer named Gavin Andressen, who’s presently the project’s lead developer. Andressen now functions below the auspices from the Bitcoin Foundation, the closest factor the anarchic Bitcoin neighborhood has to an official public face. 3. What’s a Bitcoin address?

  12. One of the most asked question nowadays is – What is Bitcoin ? . The recent climbs of Bitcoin price made a lot of people to ask what is this digital currency that everyone talk about and how can someone profit by using them. I’d like to start a series of articles on Bitcoin phenomenon explaining to everyone interested what is bitcoin, how you can earn it and spend it, trusted websites accepting bitcoins and talking about future of this crypto-currency. What is bitcoin ? Bitcoin is largely an imaginary piece of code, with no intrinsic value. Gold has intrinsic value for use as jewelry, some in electronics, for making teeth, for coating mirrors, and a host of other possibilities. Silver has even more intrinsic value for medical uses, in film, in coatings for bearings, for it’s heat distribution and electrical properties, etc. Bitcoins, gold, and silver all share one crucial aspect in common. They are all relatively rare. Bitcoins are like the rewards for a correct answer to a certain math problem. Both the problem and the answer are completely unique. There will be a limit of about 21 million (the eventual exact number is 20999999.97690000) of these special solution rewards known as the “Bitcoin.” Those dabbling in the complicated technicalities of Bitcoin, such as programmers and promoters, call it a “crypto-currency.” This invented term refers to the form of mathematics that generates the rarity behind the solutions that earn the Bitcoin rewards. Check what is bitcoin video bellow History of BitCoin Officially, Bitcoin started in 2009 by a mystery man (or group) with the Japanese name of Satoshi Nakomoto. His name has the same commonality as John Smith has in the U.S. In short, we do not know who started Bitcoin. He kept his identity secret for an important reason. The domain name, Bitcoin.org was created in 2008 in Helsinki from whois.org. One common theory is that three programmers skilled in cryptography – none of them Japanese – developed the system. The men behind one of the relevant patents #20100042841 are Neal King, Vladimir Oksman, and Charles Bry. All three have filed several related patents in the encryption, and network management area. A fantastic article making a strong case for the three man origin of Bitcoin appeared on Fastcompany.com With nobody pinned as the founder of Bitcoin, this anonymity becomes one of its great strengths. So there is no founder to throw in jail or no central Bitcoin bank to shut down. There is no person or group controlling Bitcoin. Bitcoins come from a distributed network of people running what are called Bitcoin miners. Having a central processing or controlling location for a currency presents a big problem. Governments, hackers, banks, or general criminals can all attack and often destroy that central authority. Governments go after alternative currencies. A successful precious metal backed electronic currency called e-gold stirred the ire of government. The founder and head, Dr. Douglas Jackson, was nearly sent to prison for 20+ years. Nuts and bolts for Bitcoin Bitcoin is often represented as BTC, or 1 BTC is 1 Bitcoin. We can also deal with 0.1 BTC, 0.01 BTC as we would with say, U.S. dollars. $0.01 USD is also known as 1 cent. Similar for Bitcoins though, it has software behind it that allows for a very small denomination of a Bitcoin that looks a tad scary: 0.00000001 BTC.or 100 millionth of a Bitcoin This smallest unit of BTC is known affectionately as a “Satoshi” in honor of the genius that developed the whole code framework. Not that the use is popular, but we use the same names from the metric system when describing Bitcoin denominations: CentiBitcoin is also a bitcent and looks like .01 BTC or 1 cBTC MilliBitcoin is either a bitmil or mbit: .001 BTC or 1mBTC That is about all we will need for the foreseeable future. For the purists though, the smallest, fashionable BTC is the microbit or ubit with .000001 BTC or 1 uBTC. If we find ourselves trading in uBTC’s soon then let’s hope we all stocked up on BTC’s before the attack of the 5 zeros! Bitcoins In Use We can now buy things with Bitcoins. No cars, planes, diamonds, or furry dinosaur feet are available yet with Bitcoins because it is too new, not fully understood, and somewhat risky. However, many retailers are coming around to Bitcoin; Bitcoins exploded in value compared to other currencies so prices already use .001 BTC format. The reason is, We value Bitcoins in our national currencies. If we live in the U.S., our national currency is the U.S. dollar or USD for short. Europeans, for the most part, use euros or €. Out of the gates, Bitcoin was a 6-cent weakling with 1 BTC being priced at 0.06 USD. So the same items we now see priced at 0.294BTC would have been around .416 BTC in Bitcoin’s toddler days of 2009-2010. Bitcoin is a fast growing online option for payments, so we can expect to see it continue to go deeper into the bitcent, mbit and even ubit prices. Now that I’ve answered your question on what is bitcoin I invite you to check the investopen bitcoin forum for more news and guides on Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies.

  13. FinTech as a financial term has got into the mainstream news and vocabulary in 2017, and it should come as no surprise. Short for ‘financial technology’, the way we as individuals and large multinational corporations manage our finances is set to change for the better due to the natural evolution of technology in the digital age. Whether you’re acquainted with FinTech right now or not, everyone should be making an effort to at least understand what it is and why it’s really going to matter over the next decade and beyond. It will change the way we interact with our banks and the companies we seek services from for the better. FinTech is a big deal which is why we’re going to cover what it is and why you should make some time for it in 2017. So, What Exactly is FinTech? FinTech does not have a set in stone definition that everyone uses but in layman’s terms, it’s the utilisation of new and existing technology to optimise how cash is used and managed at both a business and individual level. This isn’t something which has just recently crept up from the corporate giants in Silicon Valley, this is something we’re already taking part in via things like Bitcoin and Contactless Credit Cards. The reason FinTech is only recently beginning to stir up conversation in normal everyday discussion is because we’re currently riding the early wave towards the boom of financial technology. Economists and software gurus alike have been speculating on the almost limitless applications of this postmodern technology. One day, according to some of these speculations, we could see ourselves borrowing money for a mortgage from multiple different everyday individuals through Blockchain technology, something that will, and is already, making global banks more and more obsolete. Why is it that banks, and by extension you, should be wary of Blockchain financial technology? Because, at its extreme, Blockchain could remove the need for banks and regulation altogether. Blockchain Technology: The End for Banks? Traditionally, the adding and subtracting of finances between individuals and businesses had to go through an intermediary who would ensure that ledgers are updated quickly, accurately, and safely. This is the main function of the banks we all tend to use, however, Blockchain FinTech has constructed a way in which these ledgers are public (but not publically readable), updated instantly across all participating individuals, and are highly secure. This is exactly the technology that underpins Bitcoin as a cryptocurrency and already demonstrates an early success of a digital currency which has no governmental or financial body’s rules imposed upon it. Due to the numerous advantages this brings over traditional financial management, it is almost a certainty that more cryptocurrencies of this nature will become more mainstream and perhaps eventually replace the classic roles of banks, credit card operators, insurance brokers, and more. The Obstacles FinTech Must Overcome For as many possibilities and efficiencies FinTech purports to bring to the average Joe as well as big business, there are concerns as to how this new technology is used and how it will be implemented. #1 – Security The #1 issue most people sympathise with is how secure is the technology managing our finances. Hackers and blackhat software developers are known for taking the time to break down the digital walls and exploit weaknesses to make a quick buck. While we are assured that systems like Blockchain are fully encrypted and safe from tampering, how sure can we really be with how shielded out hard-earned money is? #2 – Legal Challenges As new technology evolves, the law has to play catch-up to make sure that individuals and businesses are not unfairly treated or exploited by systems they may not understand. It’s only now that we’re seeing the emergence of FinTech law firms which should help in driving home the message that the FinTech industry is not to be ignored. #3 – Public Perception One major problem with the FinTech industry right now is that not enough people know about or understand it yet! If you were to ask people what it is and how it might affect us in the future, we bet most people would not be able to provide you with an informed answer. Another problem is that even those who have heard of FinTech are generally pretty sceptical – arguably with good reason. As long as this level of scepticism is quelled by informative and well-presented information aimed at the average member of the public, hopefully this will not be a lasting obstacle to further FinTech progress in the future. What’s next for the Fintech Industry? It is difficult to say where we’ll be with all the advances in financial technology over the next 10 or 20 years; all it takes is one corporate giant to form who can pave the way for us to take this tech to its full potential. However, for now, we can appreciate early adopters like Monzo and Bitcoin.

  14. Hello Joy. Nice to see that you signed up here. All the best buddy
  15. Today, in our interview session, we have Stoney G deGeyter. Stoney Degeyter is the author of The Best Damn Web Marketing Checklist, Period! He is the founder and CEO of Pole Position Marketing, a web presence optimization firm whose pit crew has been velocitizing websites since 1998. Also, Stoney participated in our SEO Expert Round, telling us where should we focus on SEO in 2017. Check his contribution here. He is also kind enough to answer our questions: 1. Stoney, do you mind telling the readers a little bit about you and your company? We are a full-service digital marketing agency with a background in online marketing. Everything we do is designed to help companies build their web presence and leverage that into business growth. Each of our strategists focuses in a particular silo of digital marketing, which means we they don’t try to be a jack of all trades. Instead, this allows them to master their particular niche and be the go-to expert. 2. You started PolePositionMarketing back in 1998. What inspired you for the name and the entire Formula 1 theme? Are you a fan of auto racing? I grew up falling asleep on the couch out of boredom as my dad watched NASCAR races on TV. I never had much love for the sport, but I did enjoy playing the Pole Position Atari video game. PolePosition Atari Video Game Between the two, I understood what the term “Pole Position” meant and liked how that applied to what I was doing; helping businesses move past their competition into the pole position. 3. How many hours do you work daily? Please share your daily schedule with us. Well, as a business owner, I’m always working. Even when I’m watching TV, I’m thinking about things from a business perspective and trying to understand the mechanics of how things work both creatively and mechanically. I’m always looking for new ways to do things that I can apply to my business. But as for my actual work-day. I typically get to my desk at 7am and leave around four or five. I’ll check (but rarely reply to) email throughout the evening just to make sure there isn’t an emergency I need to address. Usually the first thing I do every morning is to try to clear out my inbox. From there I’ll move onto projects that need to be addressed so my team can keep moving forward on them. Then I get to my own task list. I try to set two days a week aside for writing blog posts and articles, but that doesn’t always work out like I plan. 4. You run the company, write articles and books, participate in conferences and also do optimizing. How do you manage to do all that?
