Ad viewability “should not be a KPI”, according to study
Wednesday, February 10, 2016, 16:37:03 GMT by Chris Lake
A large study of almost 10,000 people found that ad viewability affects ad recall, but goes on to state that it should not be a KPI. The research , compiled by IPG Media Lab, Integral Ad Science and Cadreon, sought to explore whether ‘viewable’ ads are actually effective. The viewability problem is considerable, with more than half of all ads not being seen by humans. But how effective are those ads that are seen? Also,

Formulating a go-to-market strategy for your mobile site or app
Thursday, February 4, 2016, 16:30:17 GMT by Andy Favell
Planning and budgeting for your promotional campaign at the very start of your mobile project is critical to success. It doesn’t matter how brilliant your mobile website or app is if no one knows about it or uses it. The Catch 22 is that people visit websites/apps found at the top of web search results and they download native apps that appear in app store top 10 category lists. But to achieve these rankings your site or app has to be among the most popular.

Thursday, February 4, 2016, 14:44:38 GMT by Graham Charlton
Content marketing has been widely adopted but how are people measuring whether it works or not? Which metrics should we be looking at? The answer to that last question will depend on the business and its goals. Measuring for its own sake is pointless, it has to align with business goals. With this in mind, I’m not going to tell you which metrics are most important, but will simply present the various metrics you could use.

Which UK sites lost Google visibility in 2015?
Wednesday, February 3, 2016, 14:10:42 GMT by Graham Charlton
We recently looked at the UK sites which made the biggest SEO gains in 2015, and now it’s time to look at the ‘losers’. The Sistrix visibility index looks at the sites which dropped down. Interestingly, while previous ranking falls have been blamed on Google’s algorithmic changes , there were fewer of these in 2015. This means that the drops in visibility are more likely to be due to fallout from redesigns and domain name changes. For example,

Are SEOs focusing on the wrong target?
Thursday, January 28, 2016, 13:33:24 GMT by Dave Lloyd
I’ve spent a considerable amount of my life in the SEO world. But I’m here to say that our discipline is led by a false premise. We’re all chasing the wrong rabbit (or hog/unicorn/insert your favorite elusive animal here). Take the term ‘ SEO ’, for instance. Search engine optimization is defined by Wikipedia as “the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine’s unpaid results,

Tuesday, January 26, 2016, 13:40:51 GMT by Chris Lake
Twitter has been having a hard time of it in the past year or so, with various product missteps, plodding user growth and underwhelming results all negatively affecting its share price. Shares are now hovering just above the $17 mark, valuing Twitter at around $12bn. For a company that should post revenue of at least $2.3bn for 2015, its market price will be whetting the appetites of prospective acquirers. Where has it all gone wrong?
