Like any good Facebook Page in the social media marketing niche, we activated the Message feature as soon as it became available a couple years back. But back then most of the messages were from people seeking help with our app (which wasn’t necessarily a bad thing).
But then, bad things started happening, like spam, and missed contact requests. Check out the video above to see why I deactivated my message button and what I'm doing instead.
+Searchmetrics posted a preliminary list of “winners and losers” of Google's mobile friendly update; some have already changed, because Mobilegeddon is still continuing to rollout.
You can see the full list here: http://blog.searchmetrics.com/us/2015/04/25/google-mobile-update-mobilegeddon-winners-and-losers-us/
Here are the highlights:
Winners: Topping the list of winners for overall gain in visibility is TV Tropes, a resource for fiction writers, with the largest amount of gain in visibility. It’s followed by Entertainment Tonight, Foreign Affairs, JCPenney and Wired.
Losers: Popular news sharing site Reddit topped the list of losers, followed by NBC Sports, Vogue, SongLyrics and Bloomberg Business.
What about your site? Is it mobile friendly? Have you lost/gained any mobile traffic since the update?
Google has a lot of algorithms. And the company updates them on a regular basis. But one update that started rolling out Tuesday has tech writers across the Internet warning of a coming "Mobilegeddon."
The change is only taking place on Google searches made on smartphones. The results will favor websites deemed "mobile friendly," giving them higher rankings than sites that are only optimized for desktops and laptops.
Google spokeswoman Krisztina Radosavljevic-Szilagyi elaborated on the changes in a statement e-mailed to NPR. "As people increasingly search on their mobile devices," she said, "we want to make sure they can find content that's not only relevant and timely, but also easy to read and interact with on smaller mobile screens." Google said it has offered tools to help make pages Web-friendly. There's even a Google website that allows you to test any site's mobile-readiness.
Favoring mobile websites on searches made on mobile devices seems like a no-brainer, and in 2015 you'd think most sites have mobile friendly webpages. But a study done by online Internet marketing firm Portent found that a majority of the Web's top sites actually aren't mobile friendly.
Portent tested 25,000 Web pages that were ranked as "top sites" by ranking and analytic websites Majestic Million and Alexa. The study found that 10,000 sites failed Google's mobile-readiness test, including heavy hitters like the Department of Homeland Security and Drugstore.com.
Every week, David Perdew interviews a guest on a particular topic or subject that relates to online marketing. Sometimes it's email list building, sometimes it's Kindle book publishing, and sometimes it's You Tube marketing. But the idea behind all of it is to help small business owners and solopreneurs understand how to use these various online marketing channels to build their own busineses.
I love watching these purly for the education, and for the new ideas that I can implement in my own business. And David works carefully to find the best of the best guests to make sure his audience is getting the right information to help them succeed. You can find the NAMS (Novice to Advanced Marketing System) Weekly Live Training every Wednesday right here.
