search engine optimization: Double Down with these Google My Business tips - 02/07/19 09:50 PM
Our team at iPartnerMedia recommends that businesses double down on building out and analyzing their Google My Business directory listing.
Here are a few tips for businesses to ensure they're doing:
1) Download and use the free Google My Business mobile app to monitor analytics such as click to call volume, driving directions, customer reviews and impression count.
For example, one of our clients noticed a pattern in their call volume being higher on Tuesdays which prompted them to have a little extra staffing that day to help with phones.
2) Adding fresh photos, videos, new product and service information and … (3 comments)

search engine optimization: Google Accelerates Death of Google+ - 01/22/19 08:15 AM
In October 2018 Google announced it will be sunsetting Google+. The decision has likely been in the works for a long time.
But the specific timing of the announcement is a response to a Wall Street Journal story detailing a security vulnerability that would have allowed hundreds of apps to access the personal account information of Google+ users.
Recently, Google revised their plan to accelerate the shut down.
 
The sunset is now scheduled to take place in April 2019, and over the coming months Google will provide users with information to help them migrate off of G+. Here's one of Google's announcements:

search engine optimization: GOOGLE CRACKS DOWN ON MISSING SSL CERTIFICATES - 12/04/17 01:56 PM
Even the largest of companies are subject to Google's process for warning the public about visiting websites that are “NOT SECURE.” 
I participate in an advisory panel organized through Bank of America where we get online surveys and provide our opinions on banking products and services.  The latest survey link I received generated the following message:

Oops.  Even a large company who you'd expect to be on top of things has some cracks. In this case it is likely that Bank of America is outsourcing their survey platform and their vendor has not secured the platform.

search engine optimization: One SEO Mistake we see all the time - 11/28/16 10:59 AM
There are a lot of old wives' tales on the street about search engine optimization

If you don't keep up with the facts, you are by default, behind the learning curve.
SEO is no longer an industry unto itself. It is simply a set of behaviors that a website owner must follow if ranking organically for specific keyword phrases is important to their business and website traffic.
What may have been gospel 8 years ago could be a recipe for disaster today.
