Internet Marketing Posts of the Week – March 31st 2014
Each Friday I round up the weeks Posts of the Day, where I scour the internet for interesting and useful articles about internet marketing, web design, and other related topics. Here I round up the weeks Posts of the Day (week commencing March 31st 2014).
This week the articles have looked at Google penalties, Google+, content marketing, SEO, commenting on blogs, creating products to sell on your website, and how to do better on LinkedIn.
Monday 31st March 2014 looked at two articles, one by Rand Fishkin on MOZ and the other by Paul Leck Davidson on the Reload Design Agency website. The Moz article (actually a video) looked at managing expectations of an SEO campaign. Basically knowing how things work and being prepared for time lapses between SEO efforts and actual results (e.g. more search traffic to your website). The post by Paul Leck Davidson on the Reload Design Agency website focused on Google+, and basically told us why we should be on there. This article covered areas such as improving search visibility, author authority etc. Both Posts of the Day were very interesting. See more here.
Tuesday had two articles, one by WPBeginner and the other by ProBlogger, two very popular blogs in this space. The first article looked at anonymous commenting on your blog posts, and whether or not it is a good idea. Simply, will it increase visitor interaction if people can leave a comment anonymously? The second article on ProBlogger is quite unique in its format, with two people involved in more of a discussion about a particular topic. The topic was about creating a product to sell on your website, such as an ebook or course. If this is something you are considering it’s well worth a read. See more here.
Wednesday only had one post, and this is probably the format that future Posts of the Day will take. If you want to learn how to stand out better in LinkedIn then this is the post for you. Rather that a standard post this article by Social Media Examiner was a resource page with lots of links to different bits of advice that focused on a particular area, such as increasing connections or enhancing your LinkedIn portfolio.

The final Post of the Day (Thursday 3rd April 2014) was all about mobile responsive web design, which of course NeilCurtis.me is. Rather than serving up the same website to people who search on desktops and those that search on mobile devices, you should design your website so it adapts to the screen size. More and more people are making their websites mobile responsive and the article on Web Design Ledger goes in to more details. See more here.
