Soar above the SEO bar with page-centric strategy

As search marketers, we know that there are proven methods of improving our page rank such as creating unique and relevant content with the right keywords, promoting this content, and building links from the domains that matter.

3 comments brings online retail to Facebook

In the world of brick and mortar retail, if you had to list one key to success, it'd probably be the good old "location, location, location".

Online, where anyone can set up shop, location works a bit differently. Some swear that a highly-generic domain name is the equivalent of a retail space on Fifth Avenue. Others strive to make sure they're visible to consumers through organic and paid search.
