Google’s search is tantamount to a “utility” for most businesses.
As a user, I enjoy every action that Google takes to eradicate poor results from search results. However, as a marketer and business owner, the mysterious updates, hidden penalties, and unbelievable power they wield online is both scary and bewildering.

Full blog posts versus excerpt/summaries - which is better?
I stumbled into an interesting conversation today. My colleagues were discussing a hot topic blog post. Not that unusual, but then one of them quipped that they “very much dislike blogs that display full posts on their blog home page.” The comment echoed my personal opinion but also piqued my interest.

Home page sliders are a design and content crutch
I’ll admit it – we use home page sliders a lot. It’s a habit we’re trying to break ourselves of and our clients too. We even have sliders on our site now (**gulp**) which we hope to change in the near future. Why?

It requires a constantly evolving strategy since Google changes the rules every few months. However, too often companies focus too heavily on optimizing for search spiders at the expense of their human visitors. »
