Google doubles down on native app experiences with Gboard, Chirp and Translate
Tuesday, May 17, 2016, 10:08:42 GMT by Kenny Chung
Google puts high value in mobile user experience.

Between Google AMP rolling out in February and the recent announcement of an update to its mobile-friendly algorithm for May ,

Brand slackers: organic search is not always about non-branded keywords
Monday, May 16, 2016, 13:56:24 GMT by Josh McCoy
I admit it, I am addicted to the non-branded organic referral, but let’s be honest, the branded or partially branded organic search traffic that you are receiving (or not) is much more qualified. While we waste away worrying about non-branded exposure, much of the time, we are ignoring “branded” entry into our site from a multi-channel attribution standpoint. Specifically,

Everything you always wanted to know about programmatic but were too afraid to ask
Thursday, May 12, 2016, 15:12:53 GMT by Sophie Loras
One of the biggest challenges to programmatic adoption is that people are afraid of it. To counter this, marketers should keep the language and definitions simple. This was a key takeaway from a panel of experts discussing programmatic at a recent ClickZ Live digital marketing conference. “In programmatic we have a tendency to use a lot of jargon, which creates a lot of fear, even within the industry,” said Aswin Regawa, managing director, platforms,

Why you NEED to raise organic CTR’s (and how to do it)
Thursday, May 12, 2016, 11:06:24 GMT by Larry Kim
Does organic click-through rate (CTR) data impact page rankings on Google? This has been a huge topic of speculation for years within the search industry. Why is there such a debate? Well, often people get hung up on details and semantics (are we talking about a direct or indirect ranking factor?), Google patents (which may or may not even be in use), and competing theories (everyone’s got an opinion based off something they heard or read).

In some circles that’s akin to not having a strategy at all, but I don’t find it particularly surprising. Plenty of experienced, established teams seem to work without documentation in place,

Search engines continue to adjust algorithms to better match how consumers actually conduct their searches. How should this affect our optimization efforts ?
