Friday Link Roundup: SEO Links and Other Good Stuff from Around the Web

Welcome to another edition of the SEO Inc. Friday Link Roundup. It was a wild one out there this week, and at times, it didn’t seem like we were going to pull through. But here we are, standing tall, all of us arm in arm ready to take on the world (cue ending os a superhero movie music). While that’s a bit of an exaggeration, it still was a wild past couple of day in the world of SEO and all things Internet. So, what did we learn? You’ll have to read through for more…

 

Link Roundup

Say you’re a webmaster with a keen want to drive stupid amounts of traffic to your site. But maybe you’re at a loss of how to do now that the keywords you’ve implemented have plateaued, What now? Well, this week, we read up on 3 Overlooked Traffic Growth Opportunities. Check em out.

Another great point we have to share is the freedom to be who you want to be, and use whatever social network you want to use. Social media is, in fact, for everyone. But, be careful to not invest too much time into a social network that will do very little for your business or brand. Because while, yes, social media is for everyone, http://www.socialmediaexplorer.com/social-media-marketing/social-media-is-for-everyone/ not every social network is.

The world is bigger than just the Internet, but it’s easy to forget that when you’re inundated at every possible moment by digital this and hashtag that. So when we saw this rad article about how liven up an ugly Excel graph, we got excited. (Not sure what it says about us that we got excited about Excel, but it’s true.)

This didn’t happen this week, though the list of hidden meanings in company logos is an on-going discussion. We just thought these were particularly cool. Especially the simplicity and subtlety of the FedEx logo.

We’ve been saying Content is King now for, how long? At least forever or so. But who’s counting? Anyway, if you are still in a place where you find blogging foreboding, read up on a few tips and tricks that really break down how to get going with your blog. In no time at all, you will have a successful blog on your site, granted you remain dedicated to writing.

Also, in our “Damn That Sucks” category this week is another guest blogging site being hit with huge penalties by the great Goooogle of Oz. Honestly, what are your thoughts on this? We’re developing some theories of our own, but do you think guest blogging is detrimental or beneficial, and what do you think Google’s reasons are for penalizing them?

A little short and sweet this week, with a little something for everyone, we hope!

Check back next week for a new round of links.

We’ll leave you with the immortal words of Navin Johnson… I know we’ve only known each other four weeks and three days, but to me it seems like nine weeks and five days. The first day seemed like a week and the second day seemed like five days. And the third day seemed like a week again and the fourth day seemed like eight days. And the fifth day you went to see your mother and that seemed just like a day, and then you came back and later on the sixth day, in the evening, when we saw each other, that started seeming like two days, so in the evening it seemed like two days spilling over into the next day and that started seeming like four days, so at the end of the sixth day on into the seventh day, it seemed like a total of five days. And the sixth day seemed like a week and a half. I have it written down, but I can show it to you tomorrow if you want to see it.

Have a good weekend.
