Content Marketing Institute Staff Discuss Website Traffic and the Results of New Research

Content Marketing & Website Traffic
The video below features a few professionals from the Content Marketing Institute discussing website traffic and the hidden messages your readers may be dealing with.  I've been following the Content Marketing Institute's blog and podcasts for a few years now and I've learned a lot from the staff.  They are always on the cutting edge and the content they produce is always fresh and useful.

This discussion is based on findings from Content Marketing Institute’s new B2C Content Marketing: 2017 Benchmarks, Budgets and Trends—North America report.  When it comes to content marketing, an unseen message in your website traffic could open a new approach to content. In this Content Marketing Strategy Session from Content Marketing World 2016, a panel of B2C marketing experts say that looking for ways to reach the audience that you have – even if it’s not the audience you wanted – may provide a path to new insights and activities.

Google's 200 Ranking Factors: The Complete List

You probably already know that Google uses about 200 ranking factors in their algorithm... But what the heck are they? Well today you're in for a treat because I've put together a complete list. Some are proven. Some are controversial. Others are SEO nerd speculation. But they're all here.
Here are a few of the ranking factors Google uses every day to rank all the web pages on the Internet.  You can follow this list to ensure your site is up to par.

1. Domain Age: 

In this video, Matt Cutts states that: “The difference between a domain that’s six months old versus one year old is really not that big at all.”. In other words, they do use domain age…but it’s not very important. 2. Keyword Appears in Top Level Domain: Doesn’t give the boost that it used to, but having your keyword in the domain still acts as a relevancy signal. After all, they still bold keywords that appear in a domain name. 3. Keyword As First Word in Domain: A domain that starts with their target keyword has an edge over sites that either don’t have the keyword in their domain or have the keyword in the middle or end of their domain.

Post with Two Embed.ly Buttons

Two Embed.ly Buttons Requires a Little Work
This is the thing.  I created this post to see if I could use two Embed.ly buttons per post.  The buttons empower readers to quickly scoop up the content on any page where the button is embedded, then paste that content into any web page.

As you can see from the image on the left, simply including the html code of the Embed.ly button is not enough as the buttons will appear next to the text.  I think I can fix this issue with a <br /> tag, or maybe two.

Temporary Fix for Header Issue

This banner should hold for a day or two.  At least the company get's a link to their site!  The green banner below was going to be used as a header placeholder.  It looks small on this post but it is actually 729x90 which is the size I need to fill header position.

I may not need it.  But if I do I can use it a couple ways.  I could do an image tag and render the image via a URL or I could simply insert the pic directly since it's already on this blog's media files.  And it's not a bad company either.

What is Content Marketing Exactly?

Writing content for consumption on the Internet today isn't the same as it was a few years ago. In fact, content creation in general has changed drastically in just the past two years and it'll continue to change as far as the Schema organization is concerned.

the web looks a lot different today than it did fivers ago and it’ll look different than today’s style of producing content in a few years from now. The heavy weights driving this change are Google and Bing.
