By | Jan 2nd, 2014 10.50 AM | View all posts in Infographic

The year of 2014 is upon us and as a result, big changes are expected this year. In the field of digital marketing, a lot of predictions have been floating around since 2013 about the big things that will emerge in 2014. Without a doubt, many predictions are said to come true.

Here’s our Digital Marketing Trends 2014 infographic breaking it down for you:

Digital Marketing Trends 2014

Following up on rumors and speculations (plus our predictions), we’ve combined our research into this infographic, breaking down into four sections:

  • Content Marketing – Content marketing has been around since 1895 and is still in practice today. Content marketing is not a new concept but it will continue to grow and be optimized. Many businesses are looking into content marketing to expand their brand’s services and credibility. In result, they often reach their target audience (via social media) and fulfill expected KPI (Key Performance Indicators) goals.
  • Advertising – Like content marketing, this concept is not new. However, it’s the type of advertising that is expected to be prominent in 2014. With the implementation of DMP or Data Management Platforms, advertisers can now target specific audience groups and individuals to ensure their ads will show only to them.
  • Big Data – The era of Big Data is upon us. Big data, as the name implies is the collection and storage of large collections of data which cannot be processed manually or one program. It’s impacts are still yet unknown.
  • Mobile Marketing – Interestingly, mobile marketing is slowly emerging and establishing itself to become one of the more dominant forms of marketing. More people are using their portable devices to conduct business on the go. To top it off, many websites are opting for for a mobile compatible design, according to Google’s Responsive Web Design.

Declassifying Google’s Hummingbird Infographic [INFOGRAPHIC]

By | Oct 20th, 2013 09.38 AM | View all posts in Infographic

Google’s famous hummingbird algorithm officially rolled out this past September 27, 2013 which meant a whole of changes were coming to the SEO world. Many speculated if hummingbird was going to affect their rankings which have been in good standing even after the Penguin and Panda updates rolled out way back when. Many theories buzzed through SEO communities about its impacts but nobody could truly identify what hummingbird really did. Was it a just a cute name masking something big from Google? Maybe. Maybe not. It’s too early to pinpoint hummingbird’s real intention.

To non-SEO specialists (like you or me), the new algorithm makes searching a whole lot easier; results are pulled from websites and displayed on the front page in forms of interactive graphs, sliding image galleries or even showcasing music and videos. Life became simpler. Search queries although not exclusively keyword based, were showing results related to the search query regardless if it had the exact match keywords or not.

To better understand what this is or better known as Conversational Search/Query Search, here’s a breakdown of hummingbird in the form of cute birds in our very own Hummingbird infographic!
