Click-to-call Syntax and a Weird 404 Issue

by Nichola Stott @ SEO Chicks

For many of us working in technical SEO for an agency, the first stage of any new client win is to perform a site audit. Whilst many agencies will have their own procedures most experienced professionals will start with crawl-related checks and research. If a site (and pages therein) can’t be crawled, then they won’t appear in any search engine index and if there’s nothing indexed, then there’s nothing to optimise. (So let’s all go home and play CoD.) As part of the checks and diagnostic procedures we make sure to cover at theMediaFlow, we have a look at any reported crawl errors in Google or Bing Webmaster Tools. I want to share with you a recent example of some [...]

Exploring Color in Print and Digital Media: It’s Complicated

by Christa Nelson @ MCS | Marketing | Public Relations | Graphic Design

By: Chris Weaver Most of us probably remember the color wheel from our elementary school art classes. The primary colors are yellow, red and blue, and by mixing them, we can get secondary colors like green, orange and purple. Depending on the percentages mixed, any number of color variations are possible. Ah the good ol’

4 Things I Learned as a Marketing Intern

by Paladin @ Paladin Staffing

If you’re wondering if an internship is right for you, the answer is yes. Before I began my marketing internship, I honestly had no idea what to expect and felt pretty inexperienced. Now, my internship is coming to an end, and I’ve learned that caffeine is my new best friend, corporate offices can be fun and meetings can be as unconventional as writing random ideas on sticky notes. Of all the things I’ve learned as a marketing intern, here are the four most important: 1. I did more than fetch coffee. We’ve all heard of the stereotypical intern experience: going on coffee runs, scanning mountains of documents and being consumed by busy work. My internship experience has pleasantly surprised me; I’ve never been asked to get coffee or scan a single page (yet). I collaborated with creative minds, wrote blog posts, managed social media platforms, drafted a press release and…

Surprise! Face-to-Face Communication Still Most Effective

by Paladin @ Paladin Staffing

From Greek rhetoric, to Gutenberg, to Gmail: the “Innovation” of Communication Human beings have been communicating face-to-face for hundreds of thousands of years. It is simply our natural means of expressing ideas. The ancients honed face-to-face persuasion into a fine art. Written language developed early, but literacy was a luxury of a special caste of scribes and scholars. The communication revolution started with Gutenberg’s printing press 500 years ago which enabled everything from the Protestant Reformation to the Enlightenment. Marconi gave us radio almost a century ago, and television soon followed. The Internet as a civilian tool has been in use for around a quarter century and is the relative newcomer. Humans are acclimating to the newer forms of communications, but old habits die hard. The Medium and the Messenger Matter A Yale University experiment comparing phone calls, mailers and face-to-face interactions found only face-to-face communication affected voter turnout. It’s…

SES London 2011 | Killer Facebook Marketing

by Nichola Stott @ SEO Chicks » SEO Events & Photos

Moderated by Lisa Buyer, we have Massimo Burgio and Liana (Li) Evans Li is up first to talk mainly about organic marketing and also some FB ad tips. First thing to remember is that FB is difficult to work with unless you’re already connected to something – it is not a search engine. Most important thing is to know if your audience is there. Is the audience lurking but not engaging? If so then perhaps FB ads are more appropriate. Stickiness – games are great for this, and can be addicting. Twitter – 200MM accounts only 20% are active, whereas FB has 500MM active accounts. Contests can engage people e.g. SES Conf fan page, marketing tip of the week, with [...]

Gimme My Money

by Julie Joyce @ SEO Chicks

Recently we’ve seen several SEOs fussing about not getting paid, resorting to outing the offenders. Everyone’s favorite Dutchman-in-Ireland Barry Adams wrote “How I’ve Been Shafted By Darryl Collins from Banjax and Gingerparts” (which sounds so much like a revenge porn title) and the comment section is completely full of people coming forward to say that they’ve either also been shafted by Mr. Collins (that is so hard to type without giggling) or that it’s been a problem for them with someone else. Suffice it to say, it IS a problem. In my Link Club, we’ve recently discussed how to avoid this and let me tell you, it’s definitely a huge problem and I’m still trying to collect on an account for [...]

Make the Most of Your Email Marketing Services

by Paladin @ Paladin Staffing

If you are using email to market your business, it’s a smart idea to employ an email marketing service. Not only will it save you time and money, but it may even save your sanity. The right tool will make your email marketing efforts manageable and cost-effective. It also allows you full control in the creation of valued relationships with your clientele. Building Your List Email marketing isn’t worth your time if you don’t have an email list. The easiest way to build a list is by simply asking your clients if they’d like to sign up. It’s a great way they can stay on top of news about your business and the products or services is offers. Many people want to know about sales and promotions in advance or about any special occasions or events taking place. Also, you can treat the email list a de facto VIP list:…

What Is ‘Mobile’?

by Bridget Randolph @ SEO Chicks

Mobile traffic, mobile websites, mobile apps. These and similar phrases are increasingly being discussed in SEO circles, but sometimes (and I am as guilty of this as anyone) we forget to define what we actually mean by the term ‘mobile’. The Official Definition The Mobile Marketing Association recently defined ‘mobile marketing’ as “a set of practices that enables organizations to communicate and engage with their audience in an interactive and relevant manner through and with any mobile device or network.” [emphasis mine] But to the average person (at least here in the UK), ‘mobile’ is a synonym for ‘cell phone’. No one says, ‘let me look it up on my mobile’ and then takes out an iPad. Tablets, smartphones and [...]

Could A Chimp Still Do SEO? A Followup

by Julie Joyce @ SEO Chicks

In 2007 I was much more obnoxious (and had more free time) and I wrote a post about whether chimps could take over our jobs. I’m still sure that they could definitely perform certain functions in this industry, besides being DAMNED cute even if they are fairly deadly, but what about some of the new roles that have come about or gotten more important in the past 5 1/2 years? Could a chimp do those too?

Fishing for and Landing Millennials in the Labor Pool

by Paladin @ Paladin Staffing

A teaming school of young adults are making a huge splash with the entrance of millennials into the labor pool. Millennials have surged past baby boomers as the largest generation in U.S. history. Generation Y now represents the dominant segment of the nation’s workforce. We are at a hinge point. As millenials wax within the workforce ranks, boomers are waning. Boomers are retiring in large numbers, toweling off as much younger candidates jump into the job market. To put the dynamic in perspective, millennials will make up nearly half the U.S. labor force by 2020 while, at the opposite end of the career arc, more than a quarter-million Americans turn 65 every month. IMPACT ON TALENT SEARCHES How will this generational shift toward hiring millennials play out? For starters, it’s a great time to be a job-seeking millennial. With unemployment hovering around 4.4%, the lowest rate seen since 2001, intensified competition for workers will drive up compensation through 2018.…

Online Portfolios Are Your Friend

by Paladin @ Paladin Staffing

Online portfolios have been around for quite some time. Unfortunately, not everyone is taking advantage of the opportunity online portfolios offer. For the best stand-up comics, releasing a special on vinyl is the true sign of “making it.” However, those same stand-ups know that career survival depends on having their specials streaming online. A parallel can be made with creatives and their resumes. Having your resume professionally printed on 100% cotton paper is a mark of accomplishment. Yet it is not enough to attract most employers. That requires an online portfolio. Whether you are a self-employed contractor or working for a company, having an online portfolio is crucial for your career success. Your online presence tells a story. Write it well. Most hiring managers and recruiters look online for your presence, or people in your field, and having that up-to-date online portfolio can be the one thing that changes everything…

How Should You Vet A Referral?

by Julie Joyce @ SEO Chicks

I was recently approached by someone who immediately had that demanding vibe that so heavily annoys me and makes me get more frown lines, and that encounter has caused me to rethink how I vet a client, both for my own business and to send out as a referral. You see, I feel like I am wasting someone’s time if I know I have no room to take them on, so I immediately tell them that and try to help them find someone who can help them. Usually it goes well and people are thankful that they don’t have to go trawling for someone with half a brain but sometimes it blows up in my face. There was the guy [...]

Guardians of the Galaxy Preview – Is Gamora An Homage to SEO Chicks?

by Judith Lewis 'deCabbit' @ SEO Chicks

Green for Gamora – green for SEO Chicks. I see a direct correlation to the ass-kicking female lead from Guardians of the Galaxy and all the SEO Chicks rolled into one. There’s the brains, the sass, the dexterity, the resourcefulness, the do and the green. It wasn’t clear from the clip if she would be able to increase the visibility of a site online however I get the sense she’d be able to do it by sheer force of will.
