Friday, March 18, 2016, 12:29:19 GMT by Rebecca Sentance

Thursday, March 17, 2016, 16:11:51 GMT by Christopher Ratcliff

Thursday, March 17, 2016, 14:56:22 GMT by Chris Lake
If you’re anything like me then Reddit is a fantastic place to hang out, particularly when you’ve got a little time to spare. The depth and breadth of user-driven content on Reddit is incredible. If you’ve written it off as a repository of cat pictures then it might be worth re-evaluating (I’m allergic to cats, and most cat pictures). It’s weird but a lot of people seem to be a bit scared of Reddit.

Six essential steps to present data persuasively
Thursday, March 17, 2016, 14:26:11 GMT by Adam Singer

Wednesday, March 16, 2016, 15:02:28 GMT by Andy Favell

Seven ways publishers have reacted to ad blockers
Tuesday, March 15, 2016, 15:08:31 GMT by Tereza Litsa
There is a growing concern among publishers regarding the rise of ad blockers from users who prefer to enjoy an ad-free experience, as this translates to a significant loss of revenue for them. According to a report by Adobe and Page Fair , the loss reached $21.8 billion during 2015 and this has created an imperative need to tackle this increasing threat before it has any further impact on their existing advertising model (and their main source of profit).

Thursday, March 10, 2016, 14:38:41 GMT by Juan González
In the USA, mobilegeddon was much more successful in making website operators take note of Google’s mobile-friendly update than for any other country we looked at.
