Google My Business Insights, the analytics within the local dashboard, is having an update.
Whether you're representing a brand, or just your own as an influencer, going live on social media networks can give you a lot of benefit when it comes to exposure.
The one major problem is that too many people are shy if compared to the bold who dares to go live online no matter the cost. Yes, it is true that broadcasting live can be intimidating. After all, viewers are tuned in real time, and mistakes here and there can be realized as fast as they happen.
Accelerated Mobile Pages are fast, and websites should benefit for using it. But is yours fast enough?
AMP is supposed to be fast out-of-the-box. It has runtime which is optimized to deliver faster loading speed to all valid AMP pages. However, there are things you can do to make a little improvement in the performance.
But is it necessary? After all, AMP documents are already served using AMP cache that already performs all of these optimizations. Well, this is true but only to cases, such as AMP documents that are surfaced in Google or Bing search results.
Smartphones have become part of our everyday life, and for that reason, we are so glued to them that we're doing almost anything on them.
Every time we grab our smartphone to browse the web, participate in a group chat, watch streaming videos, we leave some digital footprint along the way. This is sort of an activity log that could be traced to your habit and what you've done with the smartphone.
This digital footprint can compromise your privacy, the next time someone borrows your phone, or when you're selling your phone.
Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) can indeed improve the way designers work. By adding another dimension to an object, things can get a lot more realistic and interactive.
AR and VR provide that "magic leap" which allows visuals to work and appear beyond our limited screen sizes. With many apps allowing AR and VR, the potential use cases open a whole new world of digital content.
But how about the more traditional 2D? How do AR and VR compare with the basic base of design?
Will we ditch our old 2D for 3D mediums like AR/VR?
In order to build a great web presence, you need to include link building into your campaign.
Link building is the process of acquiring backlinks from other websites to your own. Backlinks, or just link, is a way for users to navigate between pages on the internet. It's the basic form of getting to one place to another on the web, that is also used by search engines when crawling the web.
With almost everyone on the internet having social media handles and accounts, there is an unspoken competition between social media networks and email.
This is because both are indeed useful. Most marketers in the modern days of the internet will promote their business through both social media and email, despite they can get great results using either one. But which one is more effective?
It depends. But what is certain, email marketing is not going anywhere anytime soon.
One of the very best thing about the internet is that, algorithms can do all the heavy work, leaving us humans to monitor them and get the data we need.
As the largest online company, Google is sure doing its best to deliver what it can to its users. That includes giving the best the user experience wherever users are on the web.
The most prominent way that helps Google in doing that, is by tracking its users.
Call it a stalker, but the internet has changed ever since.
