This is the 8th post in the What I have Read This Month series which shares all of my favourite articles over the past month.
There is an awful lot of junk to sort through every month so here are the best bits according to me!
What I Have Read This Month
Some great content this month from the world of social & SEO including a negative SEO attack on Matt Cutts!
Let’s get it started!
SEO & Link Building
One of the best tutorials this month is this one where Matt Cutts explains precisely how to rank #1!
He also did this link building interview with Eric Enge.
Unfortunately though Martin Mcdonald decided to launch a negative SEO attack against Matt Cutts own blog. Got cleaned up pretty quickly though ;) Shame that doesn’t happen for us all huh ^^
Make sure you have optimised your site with Twitter Cards though.
I recently spruced up my Google+ profile (do a search for my name and see the magic for yourself!) and am planning to do the same for LinkedIn this week.
Google+ steals the social media limelight with some new plugins for displaying profiles, pages & badges!
The KnowEm team released a pretty cool social media optimisation tool although it doesn’t work that great on my blog. Guessing it will get better though!
General Marketing / Conversion
Let’s start with something useless like the best 404 pages from around the internet!
Then get to work fixing your landing page mistakes to increase conversions immediately.
Charles also published the top 50 internet marketing blogs according to him – nice to see I’m on the list ^^ Linkbait 101.
I’ve also put a lot of time into learning Mexican Spanish using Memrise which is freakin awesome by the way – if you have ever wanted to learn another language spend 10 minutes with that. The way it teaches you is incredible and has stuck with me.
Hablo un poco de espanol ahora!
You have 25,000 mornings in your adult life – are you making the most of them?
