Should My Landing Page Be SEO-Focused, Conversion-Focused, or Both? - Whiteboard Friday
What's more important: drawing in more traffic, or converting the traffic you have? When it comes to your landing pages, that may be a tough question to answer. After watching today's Whiteboard Friday, you'll be better equipped to decide whether you should opt for an SEO focus, a conversion focus, or a strategic balance of both.

Data and Trust

There is not even one recent study into Google that does not mention machine learning or semantic search.

This article by +Gianluca Fiorelli is no different. The next article online will be no different as well.
There is only one way for the future of search and this way is called Trust (more on trust here - http://davidamerland.com/the-tribe-that-discovered-trust.html by Mr +David Amerland).

The search engine must trust your website in order to show it in the SERPS. On the other side, we should be able to trust that the search engine is giving us only the trustworthy websites related to our queries.

It may sound simple but it's not. At leats not without the foundation of Semantic Search - data. Data that can be understood and verified.

#semanticsearch   #data  
From parsing and indexing optimization, to semantics and structured data, to the opportunities of personalized search, Gianluca uses evidence from Google's actions, statements, and patents to help you craft a future-proof user-first game plan.

Google will reinforce its emphasis on the mobile search experience with a new penalty affecting "intrusive interstitials" on mobile web pages.

Traffic is useless unless those visitors become customers
By +Omi Sido 

Recently I have said something online that caused a bit of controversy.

“Traffic is useless unless those visitors become customers.”

Although I wasn’t talking specifically about ‘money exchange’ I am starting to think that even experienced digital marketers have started developing ‘tunnel vision’ blinded by clever online articles or viral memes. I will repeat again so it’s clearly understood that I wasn’t really talking about ‘money exchange’ and it that matter the word ‘customers’ is probably not the most descriptive one, but I’d like to ask everybody who says conversion rate is not important a simple question:

What business can survive without income?
