After last months wild ride of Google updates things have started to calm again in the internet marketing world as we build up to Christmas.

This also seems to be the case for new content this month, although there have still been some fantastic golden nuggets!

Let’s get stuck in!

There are quite a few Xmas deals floating around at the moment but not enough to warrant a dedicated post.

So here are all of the current Xmas internet marketing deals I have found so far-

If you know of any others let me know in the comments and I will add them here!

SEO & Link Building

So let’s start with the news of the 3 new Google ranking factors and how they played a part in this negative SEO case study.

Google have clearly stated they are not collecting data. Test the new factors for yourself – the data does not lie.

Although Google have announced that Penguin is now updated continously which is both a good & bad thing. Bad because you can get caught quicker, good because you can recover quicker.

Bing also announced the role of content quality in their results which fits hand in hand with these Bing SEO & ranking factors tips.

Outside of SEO & Social Media you might want to consider these other traffic sources you might not have heard of.
