Weekly Digital Marketing News

With digital marketing, the only constant is change, and keeping up with the latest news and updates to networks takes time. 

Fortunately +Ana Hoffman is on the job, with her Weekly Marketing Skinny. 

What I thought was interesting...

According to a study, 27% of searchers phrase their query in the form of a question - time to rethink how you're structuring your content that's resolving these queries as answer boxes results dominate a SERP. 

Google is regaining access to Twitter's firehose - I expect we'll see an uptick in tweets appearing in search results

Why the Links You've Built to That Page Aren't Helping It Move up the Rankings

Really nice overview from +Rand Fishkin who reviews the types of links that are likely to increase your visibility in Google Search including:

➫ Domain diversity
➫ The trustworthiness of the source
➫ Links aren't editorial
➫ Source is lacking authority
➫ Where else does the source link to?
➫ Relevance?
➫ Location on page - footer, right sidebar, etc.
➫ Uniqueness 

Rand also cautions marketers to think beyond links and to also focus on how the content is resolving the queries it's getting impressions for. 

Remember, the best links are those that reach your target audience and send quality referral traffic.

Why is Duplicate Content Bad For SEO?

A common question I get asked from business and website owners is why and how duplicate content can be harmful to a site’s visibility in Google Search.

Whenever discussing duplicate content, it’s important to understand not only the potential impact of getting caught up in the search filter, but also why Google has identified this as a quality issue that can negatively impact the searcher experience.

Quick Tip: Don't Forget the Viewport Meta Tag

If you were working with clients over the past few weeks and months optimizing their responsive websites for mobile visitors, chances are you're familiar with using meat viewport to identify a desired screen size.

In this tutorial, +Ian Yates of +Tuts+ Web Design takes a deep dive into the history of the tag and different values available to ensure everything remains at the correct scale. 

Ian also discusses compatibility with certain browsers, and CSS Device Adaptation, making this article a great read all around.

#mobilefriendly   #metaviewport  
I remember my maiden voyage into responsive web design; I'd used a classic grid, wrestled with a flexible layout, and tackled media queries for the first time. Stretching and shrinking the browser window resulted in the satisfying sight of my design responding to its surroundings. Then I tested it on a mobile. It didn't work - I was looking at a shrunken down version of the full-screen design. The solution, as it turned out, was simple.. | Tags: ...

3 Days After Mobilegeddon: How Far Did the Sky Fall?

Now that Mobilegeddon has come and gone, +Pete Meyers walks us through Moz's internal data to evaluate just how large of an impact the new algo made, and also looks at changes beyond rankings in mobile SERPs. 

Historically, Google's "planned updates" have rarely shown massive changes in the SERPs or to the SEO world. It's always been the unannounced, surprise updates (Penguin and Panda, while talked about, were never given forewarned dates, and both had huge impacts that I suspect will dwarf this one).   

#mobilegeddon  
After the dreaded Mobilegeddon update from Google, what terrors have befallen the SERPs? Dr. Pete will regularly update this post with the latest from the Mobile Mozcast.
