Inspired by the latest Google algorithm change (dubbed #mobilegeddon by some), I created some guidance on how to use website optimization testing tools to improve a site's performance.
Website enhancements should include website optimization testing as well as mobile readiness. A guide to the main testing tools and how to improve results.

LinkedIn recently tweaked the groups functionality, but that will not be enough to save them. Ultimately, only we can do that, through our actions. Here are some of my thoughts on why people should make groups an active part of their LinkedIn experience – and by extension, their ongoing professional development and networking efforts.

The approach to hiring social media and digital expertise used by most organizations is perfectly backwards. They usually start with part-time internal help that is either a junior staffer, an enthusiast with some knowledge, or both. A better approach is to start with a true expert who can help define a strategy, outsource engagement to define the best tactics and determine required resources, then bring it in house.
