This is the 13th post in the series which shares all of my favourite internet marketing posts from the past month.
There is an awful lot of junk to sort through every month so here are the best bits according to me!
The Best Posts Of December 2013
With Xmas right around the corner I thought I would compile a short reading list to help you evade the annual family arguments ^^
There have been a lot of changes in the SEO world and Matt Cutt’s answers an age old question.
SEO & Link Building
Matt Cutt’s says that 25-30% of the web is duplicate content but that’s is fine, duplicate content is normal and is not spam.
That mirrors my own testing which backfired when I tried to debunk the age old myth with a case study for you last year.
But let’s not forget just how crazy the last year of link building was!
I know a lot of you e-commerce guys struggle with SEO so this post might provide a bit of inspiration!
Last but not least was this awesome post which deals with lot of SEO rumours with a healthy serving of data!
By far the best of social media this month was brought to us by Virante’s AuthorRank tool which gives us a fantastic glimpse into the possible future. I’m coming in at 6.64 right now!
A lot of people claim that Google+ is a ghost town but did you know how useful it is to generate traffic?
If you struggle with that you might want to turn your hand to the cocktail world of social, social media mixology.
Blogging & Content
Perhaps it’s time to treat each piece of content you create as a long term business asset.
As this will be the last post before Christmas I would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas!
I was planning on winding down to take some time off during the festive period.
But the worst thing about the internet is they don’t turn it off at Christmas, or ever.
So if I’m a bit slow with responding over the next week – it’s because I’m very drunk and/or hungover.
HAPPY XMAS EVERYBODY!
