Thursday, March 31, 2016, 11:20:38 GMT by Rebecca Sentance

How to use In-Page Analytics and how it can help boost conversions
Wednesday, March 30, 2016, 15:48:46 GMT by Amanda DiSilvestro
Google Analytics is most certainly complex, so naturally there are a few options and features that go unnoticed. So where do you begin if you’re trying to get more advanced and need a place to start? In-Page Analytics is probably one of the most under-used features that can also be the most impactful to a small business.

Wednesday, March 30, 2016, 14:48:24 GMT by Adam Stetzer
In Seoul, South Korea, a Google-created artificial intelligence has been squaring off against a mortal man in the 2,500-year-old strategy game, called Go, that’s several orders of magnitude more complicated than chess. When it was finally over, Google’s AlphaGo won four out of five matchups, making AlphaGo a role model for young artificial intelligences everywhere. How did the robot pull off such a decisive win?

Remembering Klout: how ‘influence’ has changed over the years
Wednesday, March 30, 2016, 13:48:02 GMT by Tereza Litsa
I came across a tweet the other day from a follower giving a +K to another user, which serves as a reward for someone’s expertise, and it reminded me that Klout is still out there, although I haven’t visited it for years. What is Klout? It was back in 2008 when Klout was introduced to everyone as an online platform measuring social media influence .

Is a brutal approach to content migration best for SEO?
Wednesday, March 30, 2016, 11:02:03 GMT by Chris Lake
I read a great article over at Boagworld about the pain of content migration, a term that will send shivers down the spine of anybody unfortunate enough to have been through such a process. Written by Paul Boag, it explains some of the common problems with migrating vast amounts of content . Notably, the reorganising of content in a way where lots of mismatches occur, breaking navigation and links,

Three early results of Google removing right-hand side ads
Tuesday, March 29, 2016, 15:10:06 GMT by Jason Tabeling
About a month ago, Google introduced what now seems like a very obvious change to its results pages: it removed paid search ads from the right-hand side . Apparently Google made this change based on years of testing. These tests showed that no one was really clicking on these ads and it would better align with the mobile experience if they simply weren’t there. The impact of this means there will be less inventory,

Tuesday, March 29, 2016, 14:55:01 GMT by Chris Lake
In the past year or so Google has published numerous articles and research around the topic of ‘Micro-Moments’ , which it describes as “the new battleground for brands”. Let’s look at a top level overview and then we’ll explore a few ideas around how to optimise one particular micro-moment. So what are ‘micro-moments’, exactly?

Google has redesigned AdWords: what this means for you
Tuesday, March 29, 2016, 10:38:29 GMT by Matt Owen
Adwords has been around for a long time. When the first 350 users logged in, they were greeted by a stripped-back, spreadsheet-based display very similar to the one we see today. They were also possibly listening to ‘Bootylicious’ (but not on their phones) . The world, the ad market, and Google itself have all changed dramatically in the past 15 years, and it’s fair to say that AdWords is beginning to show it’s age.

Digital transformation: are you asking the right questions?
Monday, March 28, 2016, 14:51:30 GMT by Matt Owen
Twitter turned 10 last week. This post isn’t about Twitter, but it made me realise how long I’d been working in the social media field (it’ll be nine years next week). I’m reasonably convinced I got my first social role because I just happened to be doing social when the whole thing became popular. This happens a lot in marketing. Something new comes along and we all hop on board,

What is customer retention? A beginner’s guide to increasing CLV
Thursday, March 24, 2016, 14:47:14 GMT by Graham Charlton
Customer retention has often been overlooked in favour of acquisition, but it’s something no business should be ignoring. The best strategy is to find a balance between acquisition and retention. It’s all very well acquiring new customers, but the real value is in keeping them over time. Which brings us to… Customer lifetime value (CLV) This is a metric all companies should be paying attention to. In a nutshell,

Are rising follower numbers devaluing your social audiences?
Thursday, March 24, 2016, 14:17:03 GMT by Matt Owen
If you remember the early days of social media marketing, then you’ll also remember all those talks where you’d be told that if you could just harness 1% of Facebook’s total audience, you’d have a huge number of potential customers. In the end, it didn’t quite work out like that, but as user numbers have grown, you’d think that the law of averages would provide you with some new followers along the way.

Can artificial intelligence save social?
Wednesday, March 23, 2016, 15:58:54 GMT by Matt Owen
There has been a lot of talk in the recent past about the ‘demise of Twitter’ . Will the platform continue in the future, or will it slide slowly into irrelevancy? It’s a complicated question, but not one without precedent. One only has to look at the fortunes of MySpace to realise that no social platform is too big to fail. I have always believed one of the key issues is that new users find Twitter confusing.
