Anyone can proclaim themselves an SEO guru. If you run a company or website, that makes it tough to discern the real experts from the fakes and wannabees.

Does Google find new URLs via smartphone clipboards?

Smartphone apps can "read" a phone's clipboard, where the most recently copied text is stored. Could Google be using that ability to sniff out new URLs via people who have copied them?

We set up a clever test to find out!

Latest from our CEO +Eric Enge on something all SEOs and search marketers ought to be giving attention!
 
Google's Competition Is Significant
and if you're in SEO, you'd better be paying attention!

In my latest column for +Search Engine Land, I explain why even though Google is still the "king of search" it would be foolish to ignore that it has more competition than ever before...and that competition is making significant gains.

If you're in search marketing, you must be paying attention to more than just Google. Find out why in my article, and what you should be doing to cover the bases!
If the majority of your digital marketing is aimed at boosting your rankings on Google search results, contributor Eric Enge contends you might want to rethink your priorities.

Why Google Direct Answers Might Actually Boost Your Site Traffic

Webmasters fear or even hate Google's direct answers. This feature gives searchers an answer to their question right in the search results, which means often the user will not need to click through to any site.

In this Here's Why video we show you a type of direct answer that does drive site traffic, and explain how you might earn it for your content!

Review & Rethink: Social Tactics to Shun and Good Ones to Clone

Our CEO, Eric Enge, together with Charlie Cole, Chief Digital Officer at Tumi will be conducting a social media workshop to conclude Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition (IRCE) in Chicago, IL on June 10, 2016.

#IRCE2016 Attendees will have been exposed to a large number of successful (and not-so-successful) social media campaigns launched by e-retailers. In this final wrapup session, Eric and Charlie will connect the dots — and dissect yet more social efforts — to highlight the best of the best and the worst of the worst for contrast that is instructive when planning your next big splash. This session will move quickly, spending only a few minutes on each example. Attendees will be given an opportunity to submit their own social efforts.
