The technique used to work out if an email has been opened or not is to put a tracker image with a unique identifier in the request URL so your server can log that the email has been at least viewed. This image is normally just a 1x1px square that is invisible to the end user. The src of the image will be something like tracker.php?user_id=1312, then on ...

There are several problems with this idea that almost guarantee your article will get deleted, and quickly. Wikipedia is not a software directory. It's most definitely not meant to be part of your, or anyone else's, SEO strategy. There's a baseline notability requirement for articles. Basically, "Does this thing matter? Is it important? etc." You don't say ...

Each top level domain registry makes a dump of all whois data available. You can either download it yourself periodically, or subscribe to a service that does so and alerts you to changes. Marketers subscribe to be notified of all newly registered domain names so they can send you spam. See: Possible to download entire whois database / list of registered ...

Its a waste to show my already existing customers my company ads. It isn't, but we won't address using remarketing to drive referrals, reviews and upsells in in this question. To combat segmenting with remarketing, lets focus on this part of the question: My customers would regularly visit my website to access the updates about their account. Perfect, ...

There is one major reason that has not been clearly mentioned, and it is SPAM-prevention. E.g. if you register at facebook, you'll receive an email from an address like: Facebook <register+AHkhAc21pbWt5LmMvbQ@facebookmail.com> The main reason I think, is that especially when registering there is a high rate of wrong indicated emails etc, so a high ...

People who visit your site by and large care not at all what technologies you use to build it. They are blissfully unaware of that, and part of your job is to make sure they remain so.

I would think the simplest option would be to contact barber/salon owners and inform them that your site exists, that their business is listed, and that as an owner, they have the opportunity to have their satisfied customers post a positive comment on your site to increase their customer base. Bare in mind that you will need to make this really simple for ...

I believe "recommended" (as in "recommended products") would be a suitable short term for this section/feature. The tool for creating such a feature would seem to be a "recommendation engine" (or "recommendation system").

When it comes to marketing agencies, there are some common KPI's that you see on proposals. Generally, they lean less toward technical SEO and more into the content territory; that means anything from keyword rankings to social media success. (Social media management is obviously a different beast than SEO, but lines blur a bit when we're talking digital ...

Yes - this is one of the tracking requirements what the Google Analytics URL Builder tool is designed to help you address. Set your campaign to reflect the mailing and generate a URL (the utm_ variables in the GET string won't change, so it's fairly easy to programmatically add them to outoing newsletters if you'd prefer not to use the URL builder for every ...

When you say "create a Wiki" it's not clear whether you mean create your own site using some wiki software, or creating a page on Wikipedia for your app. You will not be able to do the latter as Wikipedia pages require some basic level of notability, which you wouldn't have as a new app. Creating your own wiki for your app is a feasible idea as it could ...

If you use Google Tag Manager then you can capture the value of the URL fragment and then match it with your Lookup Table macro. This is a much more efficient way of doing this. 1) Create a new Macro (Macro Type: URL -> Component Type: Fragment) 2) Create another Macro (Macro Type: Lookup Table) a) enter all of your items such as location1, location2, ...

It's no big secret that Google loves to use algorithms and crazy hard mathematical equations for its return of search results, in both organic and local results. This is no different when Google computes its review average. MEAN (Average) The issue here isn't the fact that Google is returning an incorrect review average, the problem is that you are ...

It sounds like the problem here is people are already not very engaged with your emails. I see two approaches to reach your audience before the deadline: Send another email, but make it engaging. Instead of just "Action required - opt in to keep receiving emails" as the main message, include a coupon, or a whitepaper, or something that has proven in the ...

When Google Tag Manager is installed on a site (a script tag beginning function(w,d,s,l,i) and ending with your GTM container ID), it is not necessary to separately add Google Analytics tracking code to the site. If the Custom HTML tag you describe is only sending pageview hits to GA, you can replace it with a Universal Analytics tag of type Pageview, with ...

A squeeze page is a single web page with the sole purpose of capturing information for follow-up marketing. The aim is to collect information such as email addresses, and get permission so you can then start to send a marketing campaign to the potential customer. So you get the email address added to 'your list' and then you need to start marketing to that ...

It's all about E-Mail-Marketing: It simply means a page with a very strong focus on get the visitors to leave their email address. It's a landing page. But the focus is on getting permission to send mails later on (while other types of landing pages might focus on a download, on a call or something else). There are lots of plugins out there for Wordpress ...

I saw your question and originally was prompted to respond because the percentages I am familiar with are very different...kind of an urban myth but I thought 'Page 1' Google saw 90% of the traffic, and somewhere I read that AdWords gets 50% or more of traffic (grumble, grumble). However, a quick search turned up this article from Jan 2012 that discusses the ...

Brand-able and memorable domains are only worth what someone wants to pay for them, that's if you were selling them. And that's worth about as much as your letter only domains. I assume you mean a few random letters. Unless a multi million dollar company finds them you wont get many big offers. From an SEO perspective. Ranking 1 domain is difficult enough, ...

Google only allows an AdWords account to use one voucher. If you have multiple vouchers from different friends, use the most valuable one. The only way to get around it appears to be to create multiple AdWords accounts and use one voucher per account. Doing so will not put you in the Google graces of Google and your accounts will be shut down if they catch ...

I would say it is mix of all four you mentioned. When the website is small and trying to cover only a small area, they will start by contacting business to list or even get there details and enter it themself. Later as they grow they start buying lists from companies like D&B and give the owner of the businesses to claim their business so they can keep ...

Short answer. Simple answer. Most websites primarily buy lists from phone companies and scrape the web. Sometimes they get lists from Chambers of Commerce registries, license registries, Post Office, associations, and so forth. As well, they can buy lists from rating companies like Dunn and Bradstreet and various lower level marketing companies which often ...

Email Forwarding Email forwarding can often break email-based unsubscribe requests. If you are using a simple mailto link within the emails, then when they click this in their final email client, the return value will be populated with the final destination email -- which of course you may have never seen or recorded. For example, if you send email to ...

Its a bad business move, and you could still sue them. If you reply to that email and they don't honor your request to be removed, and keep emailing you, then they are in dangerous waters. The danger is that they are continuing to contact you after you requested removal. It will be hard for them to prove that you didn't try to call that number and the ...

I took a course back in the day on web marketing however I am no pro in that area. My opinion is, I think social media is hard to compete with left or right and I'm betting that's what is happening to you. My best answer is to create an attraction to the comment section of your site, you have to get your name out there. As one person said, advertise, ...

For me, selling traffic is applying 301 redirects from URLs of your site to URLs of the site for which you sell traffic. In this way, you give all your traffic to the other site.
