Social Bookmarking and Organic Search!

by

What are social bookmarking websites?
The basic principle behind social bookmarking websites is to be able to have your own favourites section that is accessible from anywhere in the world. Furthermore, such online based services integrate the social component that allows interactions between individuals with the ability to view each others bookmarks. The various platforms available have their own individual add ons, such as category based browsing, rating the bookmarks, community commenting etc.

The key is the social component of managing and browsing content. Virtually, someone else, who you might even know, has found this content relevant. Often enough some sort of statistical information is kept regarding how many people have accessed the piece of content or bookmark with ability to comment and further share the relevant information, spreading it throughout the Social Web.

SEO vs PPC: an Ancient Debate!

The continuous debate of whether to use PPC or go the "Organic" way, has been constantly on the minds of business owners, marketers, and just newcomers to internet marketing. While the Pros and Cons of each are often discussed and debated over. One thing is for certain the notion that double exposure brings more business unarguably carries validity; Yet what if you had to pick?

The fear, that Paid results will somehow negatively effect organic rankings, which is often or not reinforced with the assumption of overpaying for already organically achieved keywords, is widespread in the minds of many. This however does not make it any more legitimate.

While Organic results carry a notion of trust behind them and often have no "pay-per-click" cost associated with them, they are difficult and time consuming to achieve. Furthermore, with the presence of even mediocre competition, guaranteeing first three positions is difficult thus leaving your exposure in the visual range of the second screen. This significantly reduces visibility and thus traffic to the results. Additionally, in reality marketing efforts of 90% of internet marketeers are "grey-hat" at best, thus leaving your "organic marketing" open to Google Algorithm changes and penalties.

Google’s Hummingbird & SEO Today

by

With mobile searches on the rise, wearable computers are becoming an everyday reality; people’s search queries are also fundamentally changing. These basic principles, as well as Google’s continuous desire to appease the never tiring “average searcher” is the motivation behind Google’s latest whim, Hummingbird Update.

While there is some logic behind Mobile penetration effecting search phrases and types of searches, the major effect of Google’s Search Engine Update is still fighting the efforts of Search Marketers and forcing an even wider integration of Pay-Per-Click advertising.

This most recent SEO algorithm update is more of a revision of tactics, ultimately resulting in a move to a more Semantic search. The official reasoning is the overwhelming penetration of mobile devices, as well as the introduction of Wearable computers in the form of watches and glasses.

There is no question this technology is coming, and sooner instead of later, yet from a marketer’s point of view most of the buying power still lies in your desktop/laptop searches, at least for most industries. Some so called SEO experts are all mentioning the same thesis. (mentioned above) Google’s new algorithm is giving priority to semantic search queries, yet in reality Google has made a tiny step in the direction of a system that comprehends actual questions.
