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

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

With his on-going interest in public education, Mr. Romain agreed to spearhead the financial challenge of raising $50,000,000 to help further educational opportunities at USI. Ronald and Connie Romain jointly have pledged their personal financial commitment in hopes of stimulating additional donations from other individuals. Because of the Romains’ support, the University has announced the naming of the College of Business in the family name. “Connie and I remain devoted to the importance of higher education. Both of us benefited from our experiences in the public school system, especially at USI. I know our college education would likely not have been possible were it not for USI in our community. What so many individuals sacrificed for us now require our family to give back and create educational opportunities for others.”

Evansville’s Professional Transportation, Inc. Expands Operations

by admin @ Professional Transportation, Inc.

Acquiring new company, adding 100 new jobs EVANSVILLE, INDIANA (September 24, 2012) – Professional Transportation, Inc., one of the largest providers of ground transportation services in the United States, announced plans today to expand their headquarters at 3700 Morgan Avenue, creating up to 100 new jobs in Evansville over the next three years. The expansion is a result of the company’s recent acquisition of the Crew Transport division of Coach America, a former competitor. Professional Transportation, Inc. currently provides rail crew logistical service in all territories east of the Mississippi River. With the acquisition of Coach America, the company will expand current operations by providing additional rail crew services in the Northwest region of the United States serving BNSF Railway, Canadian Pacific Railroad, Utah Railway, Portland and Western Railroad. “PTI gave careful consideration when evaluating where to expand its transportation services with the Coach acquisition,” according to Steve McClellan, Vice President of Professional Transportation. “Based on the resources of qualified workers and exceptional local universities, Evansville, Indiana was naturally selected as the expansion area of choice.” An investment of $5.45 million will be made by Professional Transportation, Inc. to lease, equip and expand 10,000 additional square-feet at the current Morgan Avenue location. Professional Transportation Inc. currently employs nearly 230 workers at the Morgan Avenue location and hopes to add a total of 100 new workers in a variety of occupations by 2015. The new occupations include; management, information technology, financial and voucher analysts, operations support, human resources and dispatch coordinators. The economic impact on the Evansville region from Professional Transportation, Inc’s expansion will total in excess of $127.5 million over the next 10 years. “The decision by PTI to relocate its new acquisition to Evansville is the result of our economic development team working closely with an existing employer committed to the success of the local economy,” said Mayor Lloyd Winnecke. “On behalf of the city, I would like to express appreciation to Ron Romain and his partners for creating 100 new jobs in Evansville, Ind.” At the request of the Growth Alliance for Greater Evansville, the City of Evansville offered Professional Transportation, Inc. a 10 year Tax Phase-in on their real and personal property investments totaling approximately $5.45 million. The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered up to $675,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $85,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These taxes are performance-based, meaning until Indiana residents are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. “Employers like PTI put Evansville above most regional communities when it comes to job creation. Our existing businesses continue to be a primary source of new employment opportunities,” said Debbie Dewey, President of the Growth Alliance for Greater Evansville. About Professional Transportation, Inc. As part of United Companies, Inc., Professional Transportation, Inc. (PTI) was founded in 1980 and began its operations, serving as a crew transportation service for Class I railroads in the Midwest. PTI’s focus is on safety, dependability, on time performance and logistical solutions for over-the-road and dedicated yard van services to some of the biggest companies in the railroad industries. ###

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.

There are major challenges to organic search.

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

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

In his comments, Vincent stated that “while this Occupational Award is earned by meeting several different National Safety Council safety benchmarks, in general terms a company must demonstrate at least a 20% reduction in injuries or illnesses that involve days away from work in the January – December calendar year. This is PTI’s first such national award, and we are very pleased to be one of only 27 companies across the country to receive this honor.” According to Mr. McClellan,”I thank the National Safety Council for this award that is especially gratifying because it acknowledges the safety training and safety initiatives Bobby Vincent and his team of fourteen Field Safety Officers and four Regional Safety Coordinators have developed and implemented, with the assistance of the Field Operations team, that have lead to our documentable safety improvements. Even more satisfying is the fact these reductions occurred during a year realizing over 20% growth.

Their training and total commitment to making safety a first priority is what has allowed PTI to become a safety leader in the railroad crew transportation industry.” Founded in 1980, PTI provides crew transportation services to employees of some of the nation’s largest railroads.  As one of the largest such providers in the country, with operations in 26 states, PTI drivers log over 100 million miles annually, and through its many training, technology, and customer service initiatives, the company has a hard-earned reputation for providing safe, on-time crew transportation services for its many railroad customers.

How Google Search Works in 2006

by Owner @ Google Maps Marketing – Expert Local SEO Company

Infographic shows how search works, from the perspective of a content creator, starting with their content & following it through the indexing & ranking process.

As users have shifted to mobile devices, the limited screen size of the devices have pushed search engines to squeeze out & displace publishers with their own self-hosted information in an effort to offset the poor usability offered by tiny devices, while ensuring the search habit does not decline.

The philosophy of modern search has thus moved away from starting with information and connecting it to an audience, to starting with the user and customizing the result page to them.

“The biggest three challenges for us still will be mobile, mobile, mobile”.
