Expert SEO Advice & PPC Tips
Moz Content now on offer to Content Marketers Content marketing is a process that is easily to pick up but very difficult to manage. Even the best marketers armed with fantastic pieces of content can struggle from time to time with blogs and articles going unnoticed or unread. As easy as it is to publish work, actually garnering attention to content and websites linked can be a real battle. Moz have taken steps to try and help win the war on unappreciated written copy with the release of Moz Content.

#Mobilegeddon By now the Google mobile update which has been dubbed “Mobilegeddon” should be well and truly being rolled out… or is it? I tweeted out this morning to see if anybody was reporting changes in the mobile rankings, but nobody came back to me, not one person! As you can see, the general feeling is that it will take a few days to roll out, rather like the other Google updates of the past. I have always seen that they usually start in the US then slowly filter over to the UK and Europe over a period of a few days. I am certainly not seeing anything in regards to rankings shifts for my clients. So What Is This Mobilegeddon Anyway? “Mobilegeddon” is the name given to the mobile search update which is being rolled out by Google today (21st April 2015). They are apparently going to be rewarding websites which are “mobile friendly” judged by Google’s own “mobile friendly test” tool, example below. (if you fail this test, have a read of my mobile web design services page). Why Should You Be Concerned? If you value your mobile website traffic then you should be concerned if your site doesn’t pass the mobile friendly test above. Mobile traffic is growing each year, smart phones and tablets are growing in popularity and are looking like taking a huge chunk of search traffic away from desktop machines in the coming years. Google have known this for years and have been banging the drum for developing a “mobile friendly” website through out that time. For certain businesses it is vital that their...Learn More
New Office – 2015 This week we have moved into our new office space and as a result I have become a little sentimental, looking back on where it all started and where I have come. I have worked in the web industry since 1999, for various different agencies and “in house”, in 2012 I officially made the step into full time “Freelance”. I had taken the leap and started my own business “officially”, The Web Design Group was born. It was originally set up to be a group of like minded freelancers to share work with each other, the Ltd company was originally founded by myself and another gentleman I shall refer to as C.R. We both worked for a large agency at the time, and were in discussions on making a go of our own freelance careers. My first office! My first office was in my garage at home, it seems to be quite common in the freelance world to have a home office. I started to convert my garage myself… Not very big or pretty, there were two desks in it and not a lot of room for much else. Within 2 months I couldn’t stand it any longer!! Moving Out The time had come where I wasn’t getting the most out of my working day, I was watching more TV than working, something had to change. I needed to capture that sense of “going to work” and getting out the house. I started looking for a small office in Ilkeston. I soon found that The Erewash Partnership ran a managed office building called Castledine House. I moved...Learn More
