Category: Marketing Research, SEO, Web Design Comments: 0

Phone makers have long told us that the lowly handset would one day replace the mighty PC at the center of our digital lives.  People from all economic backgrounds, all over the world are starting to have cell phones and smart phones.  Many are now also adopting netbook and tablet technologies.  That said, apps are becoming more and more popular and popularity will only continue to grow with the number of smart phones and tablets.  Wordpress and many other CMS's are now mobile friendly and have plugins that integrate with these CMS's to provide businesses with their own easy to implement mobile app.  This technology will in turn make way for many mobile and php jobs.  Soon enough, every business may have their own app, much like most have their own website today.

Enhance Your Search Engine Listing With Rich Snippets
Category: SEO Comments: 0

Rich Snippet displays additional data from other pages about the resources being displayed in the search result. In order to work, webmasters must incorporate open standards such as microdata, microformats or RDFa in their web pages.  Google does not guarantee that the use of these open standards will result in rich snippets, but webmasters have the option to contact Google for its inclusion.

Why use Rich Snippets?

The listing with the Rich Snippet ranked higher than the listing without.

Snippets—the few lines of text that appear under every search result—are designed to give users a sense for what’s on the page and why it’s relevant to their query.

If Google understands the content on your pages, it can create rich snippets, detailed information intended to help users with specific queries. For example, the snippet for a restaurant might show the average review and price range; the snippet for a recipe page might show the total preparation time, a photo, and the recipe’s review rating; and the snippet for a music album could list songs along with a link to play each song. These rich snippets help users recognize when your site is relevant to their search, and may result in more clicks to your pages.

Why Responsive Web Design is Important For SEO
Category: SEO Comments: 0

If you're not considering mobile as part of your digital marketing strategy, you need to pinch yourself and ask why not! Back in April, Google launched their 'mobilegeddon' algorithm which looked to knock down the rankings (on a mobile search, at least) those sites who aren't mobile friendly; the justification being that those sites which DO offer a mobile-friendly version offer a far better level of user experience. Of course, this means that if your businesses website isn't responsive, you're missing out on opportunities and likely almost freely giving work away to your competitors.  Here we've teamed up with Newcastle-Upon-Tyne web designers, Way Fresh. to outline just why responsive web design is SO important for SME's.
