Are Website Builders Actually Free?

by Owner @ Google Maps Marketing – Expert Local SEO Company

The majority of website builder brands offer a free account which allows users access to the basic features and building tools. A handful of website builders provide a limited trial period to allow users to get comfortable with the service before paying for the subscription – these are generally the more complex and sophisticated website builders.

The free accounts generally provide users with a subdomain, for example yourname.wix.com, yourname.websitebuilder.com or yourname.squarespace.com users can then publish their site under this URL. If you publish your site on a free account you will notice that it has many advertising banners for the website builder brand that you chose, this doesn’t make your site look particularly appealing to your customers and visitors. Our advice is if you have never used a website builder before or it’s your first time designing a website use the free account to get used to the editor and the features it offers and then when you want … Continue reading

Facebook, Not Google, Is Now the Top Referral Source for Digital Publishers

by Owner @ Google Maps Marketing – Expert Local SEO Company

Over the last number of years one of the main areas of contention between the two has been driving referral traffic.

However, it’s not simply about top market share, it’s a contest between social referrals and search engine referrals.

Until recently Google has been the top traffic referrer online. But according to data from Parse.ly, which provides web analytics for digital publishers that include the likes of Mashable, Telegraph Media Group, and Business Insider, Facebook recently surpassed Google as the top referrer for major publishers.

Parse.ly CTO Andrew Montalenti told SocialTimes that there are several factors contributing to this shift.

Perhaps the biggest change took place about a year ago, when Facebook began taking a more active interest in developing relationships with publishers to curate and promote content, he said:

I believe the reason Facebook did this is because they realized that a lot of the interesting conversations happening around the web were happening around major … Continue reading

    Natalie proved once and for all that fashion blogs rule. Her ambitious fashion blog is the #3 most visited #unidigadv blog of all time!

    Best Advertising Blog
    Carson Zhou - Social China 101
    Carson did an excellent job explaining how Chinese social media marketing works - learning about Weibo and WeChat was definitely fascinating.

    Thespian's Award (TIE)Abbie Takes - Engaging Theatre
    Abbie did an excellent job looking at some of the top theatres in the country and how they are successfully using social media to promote the theatrical arts.

    Zach Champlain - The Modern Backstage
    Zach is really into theatre lighting technology - and he clearly knows a lot about it. His blog seemed very helpful and relevant.


    Most Literate (TIE)
    A fun, readable blog that was authentically passionate about marketing college libraries.

    Ali Henkle - Book 'Em Blog
    If you like reading books - you'll enjoy Ali's blog. It is always good to have a student who gets my Harry Potter jokes.

    Most Tech Savvy
    Lydia Anderson - Histortech
    Lydia revealed a whole new world of connections between archeology, history, and technology that were fascinating and very well-written.

    Funnest Read
    Jimmy Terronez - Tech Web Fun
    I don't know why I liked reading Jimmy's blog - but I really did. Maybe it was the Spongebob animated GIFs. Maybe it was his YouTube video of Jimmy's celebrity impressions. But the fun always made the content more interesting and readable.

    Thanks again for a great semester - if you get nostalgic you can always tune into #unidigadv on Twitter and help the newbies out!

    Did you have a favorite blog this semester that I didn't mention?  Tell me about it in the comments!

    Mobile Windshield Pro

    MOBILE Windshield Pro and Windshield Replacement would like to help you negotiate the often slippery slopes of auto glass repair and windshield replacement, something that can turn ugly and frustrating when the company you contracted with doesn't show up, or leaves a mess when they leave. It happens a lot in our industry because there are no laws protecting the consumer from untrained and unprofessional auto glass repair technicians who do sloppy work and ignore you when your new windshield begins to leak.

    How to Leverage Social Media for SEO: Link Building

    by Owner @ Google Maps Marketing – Expert Local SEO Company

    Exploring the myriad of ways social networks can be utilized in your link-building efforts.

    I recently asked a room of experienced marketers how they thought social media marketing could assist their SEO efforts. The answers were more or less what I had expected to hear:

    Social media helps foster relationships, which in turn helps build links and improves rankings. Social media aids in public relations, as a distribution channel and a means of generating easy online buzz. Social sharing provides a form of social proof, giving greater credibility and trustworthiness to your content. Brands can rank for their social networking profiles and receive greater visibility within the SERP.

    While these are all true, let’s focus on how link building on social platforms can help unite a brand’s social media marketing and SEO efforts.

    At the most basic level, social networking sites provide an easy way to share and distribute your message. If the content is seen by the … Continue reading

      Most Viral Blog Post
      Mandy Hackenmiller - "15 Things I Learned in College" (Record Breaker!)
      Mandy's personal brand was called The Busyy Beauty and focused on health and beauty tips for those on a busy schedule.  Her blog received fairly decent traffic - around 1,000 pageviews - that is, up until April 6, 2015.  Close to the end of the project, she tried something a little different and more personal in nature - a list article about the life lessons she learned in college.  

      Perhaps due to the time of year - as many across the country were preparing to graduate high school or college - Mandy's post went viral. Big time. In the course of seven days following the publication of her blog post, her blog received 29,132 pageviews!

      Second Runner up: 
      Andrew blogged all semester about the automotive enthusiast world - but only garnered a few hundred pageviews. The week before the project was due he wrote an lengthy opinion piece on his favorite 4 cylinder engine: the Mitsubishi 4g63. Sharing it with a few Facebook groups of passionate gearheads earned Andrew over 6,500 pageviews in less than a week!

          Summertime Corporate Attire Boundaries

          by Alyssa Connell @ Connell Communications

          As the temperatures soar and the lazy days of summer approach, some mornings it’s tough to drag yourself into the office, let alone dress appropriately enough to conduct business.

          Why your current SEO approach isn’t enough.

          by Owner @ Google Maps Marketing – Expert Local SEO Company

          Customers are more empowered than ever before.

          Technology and connectivity have completely changed our lives, especially in terms of how and where we spend our money.

          This has also led to a power-shift, where people have almost total control of what they see and experience online. This is in turn “causing havoc” for businesses and forcing them to evolve quickly.

          It also doesn’t help that the online experience is full of noise; many sites are just a wall of ads, messages and assorted brand clutter. Users now have multimedia and multi-device habits and therefore have multiple means of escape.

          All of this has led to search evolving into ‘discovery marketing’. In fact marketers are now shifting money away from paid search into content marketing and other means of being discovered organically.

          Challenges

          There are major challenges to organic search.

          Add a Spotify Playlist to your Blog

          by noreply@blogger.com (Matthew Wilson) @ UNI Digital Advertising

          I've noticed a lot of students are writing about music this semester. One of the challenges with music writing in the past has been trying to give the reader an idea of what the music sounds like without actually playing the music.

          Today, however, you have other options - some of you have been embedding YouTube videos in your blog posts. That works - but can also be distracting.

          Here is one way to just share songs and playlists with your blog readers using Spotify.

          You can share songs on Spotify (like this awesome Thelonius Monk tune):




          Or you can share entire Spotify playlists (Like this playlist of highly recommended jazz tunage):



          How do you do it? Follow these steps:

          1. Download and Install Spotify. Create an account (the basic account is free - supported by ads which may interrupt your music listening).
          2. Search for music that you like and create a playlist that you want to share.
          3. Right click [PC] or control click [Mac] on the name of your playlist and select "Publish" if it is not already checked.
          4. Right click [PC] or control click [Mac] on the name of your playlist and select "Copy Embed Code".
          5. Go to Blogger and create a new post. Go into "HTML" mode and paste the embed code.
          6. Preview your blog post. Look OK? Great - Click "Publish"!
          CAVEAT: Your reader must have Spotify installed to listen to your playlist.

          Easy, huh?  This works for almost any website or blog platform, not just Blogger.  So what are you waiting for? Go try it on your own blog! And for those about to rock, I salute you! 

          Pros and Cons of Premium Website Templates…

          by Owner @ Google Maps Marketing – Expert Local SEO Company

          Advantages of using Website Templates

          What you see is what you get. With a readymade website template, you don’t have to imagine what the finished product will look like, whether the web developer you’ve chosen has understood your requirements, whether your website will have to go through several changes and iterations before you’re satisfied with the end-product. The website template can be customized to your requirements by changing the colors, pictures and text so that it ends up looking quite different from the original.

          1. Speed. Time is money. Your website will be up-and-running within a fraction of the time it takes to develop a custom website – provided, of course, that you have the content and the pictures ready to customize your website template to suit you. A custom-designed website can take months to develop, depending on its complexity. Compare that time-frame to the few weeks or even a few days for a website template to become a … Continue reading

          Social Media Project Roundup, Fall 2015

          by noreply@blogger.com (Matthew Wilson) @ UNI Digital Advertising

          Every semester, my UNI Digital Advertising students work very hard on a massive project: To develop a professional brand based on their personal interests using social media. 

          Let's take a moment to praise their work and note a few special honors.

          The Big Picture

          It's always astounding to me what my classes can accomplish in little under three months.  By measuring our activity and engagement on social media, we can quickly evaluate our performance with quantitative metrics.

          From early September through November 18, 2015, my 43 #unidigadv students accomplished the following:
          • Posted a total of 6,066 tweets on Twitter
          • Gained a total of 5,691 followers on Twitter
          • Earned an average score of 44 on Klout
          • Added 2,471 connections on LinkedIn
          • Published 397 blog posts on Blogger or WordPress blogs
          • Earned 35,565 pageviews from 11,733 visitors to their blogs

            TWITTER

            Most Prolific
            Tweeting is one of those things that seems very easy at first glance - until you do it every day in support of a professional brand.  That's hard work!  Here are the top five #unidigadv Tweeps by Tweet volume (I only counted original tweets for this - retweets did not count!):
            1. Christian Nichols @SpawnCampGaming - 258 Tweets
            2. Ryan Smith @DestinyReveal - 229 Tweets
            3. Matthew Moody @onevideogameguy - 223 Tweets
            4. Staci Langel @markithealth - 199 Tweets
            5. Eldina Siljkovic @BasicallyHID - 186 Tweets
               
            Most Followers Gained
            If you want to wield influence on Twitter, you need followers.  Here are the students who added the most followers during the semester.
            1. Griffin Kuntz @StrongFarms - added 1,146 followers (Record Breaker!)
              This is a class record for a personal brand!
            2. Spencer Moser @ComposerMoser - added 393 followers
            3. Tyler Meier @GamerGuyTy - added 322 followers
            4. Morgan Sanders @PrintsFuture - added 264 followers
            5. Valerie Yeltman @DrupalNewb - added 222 followers
               

            LINKEDIN

            Most Connections Gained
            When job hunting, who you know is often as important as who you are.  Here are the class members who gained the most connections on LinkedIn during this project:
            1. Rhydian Talbot +226 connections
            2. Taylor Aitchison +171 connections
            3. Spencer Moser +150 connections
            4. Brandon McConnell +128 connections
            5. Griffin Kuntz +105 connections
            Most Overall Connections
            Some students already had a huge network of professional contacts on Linkedin. Here are the most well-connected class members overall:
            1. Griffin Kuntz - 866 connections
            2. Austin Hansen - 487 connections
            3. Taylor Aitchison - 453 connections
            4. Rhydian Talbot - 418 connections
            5. Jake Schmidt - 377 connections
            Highest Quality Profiles
            Working to build a high quality Linkedin Profile can help you stand out to potential employers.  The following students all had excellent quality profiles:
            Most Recommended
            These three students had the greatest number of recommendations by others on LinkedIn:


            BLOGS

            The real content was being generated on student blogs, where students developed unique and original posts related to their professional brand.  They then attempted to organically attract an audience of readers - a difficult challenge!

            Most Visited Blogs 

            We had SEVEN students who earned over 1,500 pageviews to their blog during the course of the semester - they did a fantastic job attracting and engaging their visitors.  Browse through their blogs and see what they came up with:
            1. Rhydian Talbot - Campus Chripsters - 2,307 pageviews
            2. Isak Knivsland - DIY Isak - 2,106 pageviews 
            3. Spencer Moser - Composer Moser - 2,024 pageviews
            4. Taylor Aitchison - California Dreams Marketer - 1,751 pageviews
            5. Valerie Yeltman - Drupal Newb - 1,591 pageviews
            6. Morgan Maiers - The Next Chapter - 1,582 pageviews
            7. Griffin Kuntz - Strong Farms - 1,575 pageviews

            Special Honors

            Most Integrated Brand
            Christian NicholsSpawn Camp Gaming
            Christian's impressive brand (offering news about the video game industry) integrated not only his Twitter profile, but also his custom YouTube channel, his Twitch channel, and a custom Facebook page. The Spawn Camp Gaming site had its own URL and is nicely integrated across a variety of social channels.

            Strongest Writing
            Rhydian TalbotCampus Chripsters
            Rhydian is a master of verbiage, and her blog on Christian Hipsters (Chripsters) offers some of the most playful and well-crafted copy you will read. 

            Best Design
            Dana Potter - Redder
            For a blog about color theory in interactive design, one would expect nothing less than the beautifully crafted design of Redder. It also contained excellent posts on color and UI design.

            Most Resonant Brand
            Griffin Kuntz Strong Farms
            Griffin's authentic understanding of farming and ability to connect and inspire other farmers on Twitter created a strong brand that delivered strong results. Earning over 1,100 Twitter followers also set a new class record for a personal brand. 

            Best Personal Brand Logo
            Jake Sweezy - DJ Sweezy
            It's techno - it's fun.  I love it!


            Best Sports Brand
            Austin Eller - The Money in Sports
            A lot of students like the idea of a sports-related blog, but few can find a truly unique focus that is different than everything else out there. By using his background in Finance to look more closely at the financial aspects of sports, Austin found a niche that is a real winner.

            Most Helevant Blog
            Isak Knivsland - DIY Isak
            "Helevant" is a term I coined that means both helpful and relevant. Sort of like "hella relevant". Isak's blog offered helpful and relevant production tips on sampling beats and creating EDM/hip hop tracks that were excellent for a beginner, often incorporating many original examples embedded in each post as sound clips. This is the type of blog that is sure to earn hundreds (if not thousands) of additional pageviews in the coming years due to organic search traffic.

            Most Poetic Blog
            Aaron SprengelerClasp
            Aaron's blog was a showcase for his poignant animated GIFs (cinemagrams) and thought-provoking creative writing. Note that the load time is a little slow due to the large GIF files.

            Biggest Win
            Morgan Sanders - Print's Future
            When she started her project, Morgan was full of anxiety about her topic. "What do I know about the future of the print industry?", she worried. After putting a lot of work into her Twitter presence and blog, Morgan was contacted by a company that specializes in social media marketing for companies involved in the print industry. They offered her a job based on her work on this project!

            Thanks again for a great semester - if you get nostalgic you can always tune into #unidigadv on Twitter and help the newbies out!

            Did you have a favorite blog this semester that I didn't mention?  Tell me about it in the comments!

            Google Begins Rolling Out Its Latest Algorithm Update – Google Panda 4.2

            by Owner @ Google Maps Marketing – Expert Local SEO Company

            Google’s Gary Illyes has confirmed that Google started rolling out Panda update version 4.2 last weekend, affecting 2–3% of queries.

            Google algorithm updates always rouse a storm on the internet community as they directly affect website rankings. The latest such refresh is Google Panda 4.2, which began on 18th July, 2015. However, the rollout is extremely slow and that’s the reason people didn’t notice it. According to Google, it may take months till the time we are able to notice any significant impact on the website rankings. It might also not affect all the pages of a website in the short run. Google officials were tight-lipped about why the rollout is so slow.

            This refresh is happening just after 10 months from the last update that was rolled out in September last year. As Google algorithm updates keep on happening periodically, it’s considered to be the 30th such update.

            It was difficult even for the webmasters to notice … Continue reading

            Linking Google AdWords and Google Analytics accounts

            by noreply@blogger.com (Matthew Wilson) @ UNI Digital Advertising

            I had a few questions asked about how you can link your Google Analytics account to your new Google AdWords account as required by your new assignment, so I put together a short video walkthrough to show you how to do this:

               

            Mentioned in the video is a promotional offer that Google is running where you can get a coupon code for $75 of free advertising on AdWords for spending $25 on any AdWords campaign.  This offer only applies to new AdWords users, so if you already have an AdWords account, you may not be able to take advantage of it.  The details of this offer can be found here.

            Also mentioned in the video is this AdWords Help page that has a step-by-step walkthrough of how to link the two accounts.  Analytics Help also has a walkthrough available with screenshots.  

            Good luck!
