SEO Tactics To Avoid Using Today
Website optimization, or SEO, is a beast in perpetual motion. Constantly evolving year after year, if not day after day. Are there certain SEO tactics to avoid using?

SEO tactics that used to work at once upon a time are now either obsolete, or if used, could get your rankings to drop, or even worse, get you penalized by Google.

How do you ensure your website is properly optimized for search and protected against any search algorithm updates and penalties?

You need to pay close attention to certain SEO tactics to avoid. Stop using the outdated and antiquated SEO tactics that some SEO “experts” may still be using.

4 Elements to Successful Content Marketing For Local SEO
How do you make your Inbound Content Marketing drive your local SEO strategy? Today, I’m going to share with you how I make creating content a sport, and how it helps my digital shop, and our client’s businesses get the most out of their Content Marketing for Local SEO.

I came across a useful Infographic from a content marketing company known as Brafton. *It’s an excellent reminder of why your company needs a comprehensive content marketing strategy in order to achieve rock solid Local SEO.)

For example, since 97% of consumers search for local business online, you’d think that every local business would want to be creating and optimizing useful and relevant content, that’s tailored to their specific audiences.

Creating customized marketing persons and crafting content that specifically solves a “problem” those persons are experiencing is not only the key to Local SEO for small businesses, it’s also the key to “new” SEO in 2014 and beyond.

If executed correctly, creating useful local content puts the focus on engaging your social media fans and followers along with your website’s visitors.

This means that not only will you generate local traffic, you’ll also be driving local leads.

20 years later, Digital surpassed print, tv, and radio for the largest share of advertising spending in Canada.
It's taken two decades, but the time has finally arrived: Canadian advertisers now spend more on digital ads than they do on print, radio and television, according to a new report from IAB Canada. Digital ad revenue in the country jumped 14 per cent last year to $3.5-billion.
