Why AMP is NOT the Speed Solution for Every Business

+Google is pushing #AMP  hard right now. Typically, when Google says “this is important and you should do this,” the #SEO  community jumps to it – especially with today’s focus on #mobile  SEO.

But AMP is NOT for everyone.

AMP in its current form neuters a site of engagement and interactive site elements, including forms and shopping carts.

http://bit.ly/1NUwUaB <-- A must read as +Robert Ramirez and +Virginia Nussey explain who AMP is for (publishers!) and the limitations it poses to every other business (maybe yours).
Google is pushing Accelerated Mobile Pages hard right now. AMP is not the speed solution for every business. Read who AMP is for and the limitations it poses to other businesses.

My site is on HubSpot. Because it's a secure App, we don't have access to the level needed to incorporate AMP. HubSpot could though.

WHAT?! Native advertising allowing advertisers to buy SEO?

+aimClear has exposed a "loophole" in Google's organic algorithm — a case where advertiser-created content can be indexed for Google News and Web organic search along with a publisher's editorial content.

The case involves +Mashable and its BrandSpeak program, which enables a brand to pay $20K to have an article published on the Mashable platform. Though links to the brand's website are nofollowed, the article itself can rank organically both in Google News and web search results.

With this violation of Google's intent, the FTC's guidelines, and the basic principles of #SEO exposed, it can't be long before Google corrects the ability for an advertorial to take up space in the search results that belongs to true organic listings.

A fascinating read by +Marty Weintraub -

Amit Singhal will be missed

Things will keep humming along as Google Search races into the technology future even without +Amit Singhal at the helm. But it's hard to imagine anyone could match his infectious optimism and positivity. His farewell letter (https://goo.gl/QYovjZ) is so characteristic of this, as he states how grateful he is to have helped build the company over the last 15 years:

"I love Google. It is a company that believes in doing the right thing, a company that believes in doing good in the world, a company… that cares. I look back at my time here with a profound sense of gratitude that I was a part of building this."

As he journeys on "to give more and do more" in the future, we also thank him for his influence and wish him well.
 
Google’s Senior Vice President of Search, Amit Singhal, is leaving the company after 15 years of service:

Technical SEO Works

The under-the-hood maintenance of a website, like a car, can make it run better and go faster ... up the SERPs, that is.

+HubSpot wrote up a great piece on 3 technical problems they fixed on their website with dramatic results: http://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/technical-seo

Read that for inspiration, and then review these technical SEO tips to see how your site matches up:

Modern Internet Marketing Strategies Video: '90s SEOs Ammon Johns, Bill Slawski, Bruce Clay, Christine Churchill & Kim Krause Berg

Some fads are retired with great celebration. Crimped hair, No Fear T-shirts, and neon windbreakers buried in the back of the closet since 1999 – probably best if they’re never heard from again.

But some of the #search #marketing industry’s biggest stars were made in the 90s and are still trending. On January 1, 2016, Bruce Clay, Inc. marked its 20th anniversary – 20 years that Bruce Clay has been steering the #digital marketing industry with thought leadership, and proof that some 90s inventions are classics.

Bruce Clay (president of +Bruce Clay, Inc.), is one of a rare breed of digital marketers that got started in SEO in the '90s. Others include +Stoney deGeyter, +Christine Churchill, +Terry Van Horne, and +Kim Krause Berg. Beyond their industry veteran status, there’s something else they have in common – and that’s valuable digital marketing wisdom gained from decades of perspective and experience.

This group came together as guests of +Ammon Johns and +Bill Slawski in Bill and Ammon’s Jumbo January Bogus Hangout. +John Mueller and +Kristin Drysdale were there too, rounding out the reasons that this conversation was a fun one to watch. 
SEO veterans Bruce Clay and Christine Churchill chat about mobile, UX and SEO strategy with staying power on Bill and Ammon’s Hangout.
