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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

There are a variety of reasons:- Ceding control of email to a local part of the business e.g. someone@pl.microsoft.com, or a different section of the company for account management reasons. A different business controlling email i.e. outsourced situation where the company can't/don't want to cede control of their primary web domain. Denoting different ...

Well, this is the most important thing. You can blog all you want, but if you don't market and optimize your site appropriately, it'll all be for naught. I'll try to keep things direct, although brevity isn't my strong suit. Have a plan! Let's first take care of the search engine submissions. 1) Make a sitemap.xml and urllist.txt. Go to www.vigos.com/...

Google AdWords is almost (or can be) a full-time job and like SEO, you might do something simple/cheap which will have impressive results but something with a greater effect/expense that is not working out at all for you. I just left a small business (+$1MM/a) that, 6 months after changing hands, is indebted and looks like they'll be ceasing operations. ...

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 ...

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 ...

You should probably just rate-limit. For example, who generally invites more than 10 friends and family members a day? Give, as google does, a number of invites that gets used up, and then regenerates over time. And reward people who get other people to sign up on the site with more invites, people who send out invites that get no response don't get ...

Supposedly trustmarks actually do have some influence on consumer confidence. Though all the whitepapers I've seen that claim this are also published by VeriSign and similar trustmark vendors. However, if you trust these claims, then a VeriSign, BBB, as well as a trustmark from your SSL vendor (perhaps an EV SSL cert) might help establish confidence. Though ...

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 ...

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 ...

This could be because they want to separate out the email that goes to and comes from the customers from their internal email. It's a similar thing to why shops have security doors separating their staff rooms and back offices from the main part of the shop. There are different sort of concerns with those two sorts of email with regard to security, ...

Get quotes from early adopters and beta users. Journalists, bloggers, beta users, and well-known individuals in the field your app targets are good sources of testimonials; they don't have to come from long-term users. Mine twitter to see what people are saying about your app. Pull the best quotes onto your homepage under a header such as "What people say ...

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 ...
