With the Google dynamic display ads, you can showcase previously viewed products or services to users who have already visited your website.
Regular website audits can help you to keep your website user-friendly and search-engine-friendly. Site audits play an important role in keeping your website healthy.
RankRanger contributor Liraz Postan has published a complete guide to performing website audits.
Postan says, “Your website audit should include back-end factors, front-end factors, and link quality. This sounds confusing, but these five steps are going to help you handle each one quickly and efficiently.
Start a Website Crawl
The most important aspect of your site audit is the website crawl, which should only take about five minutes when you use Rank Ranger’s audit. The first thing you have to do is enter your website URL into the bar and click on the search button. There is a site audit section that you can click on. It’s going to start scanning the entire website and each webpage. When it’s done, you are going to get a lot of information. (That’s my favorite part!)
Search Engine Journal has published a comprehensive guide that covers everything you need to know about the key sections of Google Search Console, and how you can use it for better SEO.
Ann Crowe says, “Originally known as Google Webmaster Tools for nearly a decade, Google rebranded its suite of tools as Google Search Console in 2015.
With every new year, Google has given us new tools, analytics, and data to track in Google Search Console.
So that meant it was time for a refresh of our complete guide to the Google Search Console.
Let’s face it, between the excess of AMP errors and the fear of Google algorithm updates; Google Search Console can become a system of copy/paste without any actions”.
Real-time marketing refers to the process of marketing in real, or near, real-time. With this form of marketing, you can approach and sell to your prospects in real-time.
HubSpot contributor Rebecca Riserbato has published a short guide on
She says, “Real-time marketing helps you provide relevant messaging that is tailored to your audience’s wants, interests, and needs.
One way for marketers to implement a real-time marketing strategy is to have an active social media presence.
Your social media team will often be the first people to know about a current fad or trend if they’re implementing social listening (which they should be).
Additionally, you can learn more about your audience and their current interests by looking at your own data.
For instance, you can look at your website or social media analytics to discover the most popular topics of conversation. You can also learn what questions your audience is asking through social listening tools“.
Content marketing continues to evolve every year. With new platforms and technologies, we get newer ways to reach our audience and expand.
Content Marketing Institute’s Ann Gynn has shared a comprehensive guide to content marketing in 2021.
She says, “We asked this year’s Content Marketing World presenters for their top 2021 predictions. Interestingly, their forecasts have evolved from the standard (i.e., more virtual reality, growing role of voice, more selective audiences) to reflect the effects of 2020.
Here’s what they see in their practical crystal balls.
If anyone thinks they can predict 2021 – and their prediction doesn’t include a swarm of murder hornets or some other natural disaster – I’d question their hubris. At this point, we have to admit that we don’t know what we don’t know … The only truth is that if we follow the needs of our consumers – in content creation and in research and development – we should still have a place in the market in 2021. – Jessica Best, vice president, data-driven marketing, Barkley“.

We have been using the Bing search engine for more than a decade now. It is popular as an alternative (capturing 36% US desktop search market) to Google search.
Bright Edge has published a detailed guide called ‘Bing Image Search, Bing Webmaster Tools & More’.
Gabby Regalbuto says, “Google sees 6.9 billion searches per day compared to Bing’s nearly 900 million searches per day. While the search engine giant surpasses Bing’s daily search volume by an enormous number, Bing has loyal uses even though Microsoft spends very little budget on marketing its search engine.
An advantage for Bing is that it is integrated with other Microsoft products. While many searchers use both Google and Bing to do research with, Bing searches come from more than just bing.com. Bing searches occur via devices using Windows 10. The next time you search using Windows 10, even though a Windows logo appears, you’re searching via Bing.
Bing also offers rewards for using Microsoft products. You can earn points and turn it into gift cards, sweepstake entries including $500 to Target, and give to non-profit organizations just for signing into your Microsoft account and using it for search purposes”.
Effective keyword research enables you to discover priority terms, phrases, and questions to optimize your content for SEO.
Seer Interactive contributor Ben Ballance has shared a comprehensive article on doing keyword research for better SEO performance.
Ballance says, “Keyword research is one of the building blocks of SEO. And, really, any successful digital marketing. By uncovering and optimizing around how people search for your product or service, you are ensuring your content speaks the same language as your users.
As an added benefit, search engines are more likely to understand the contextual relevance of your page. This means you are more likely to rank for queries you want to rank for – which means you get the quality of traffic you want.
There are three primary considerations for including a keyword in your targets for a page:
Do the search results for the query match the intent of your page? Sometimes when doing keyword research, you’ll come across a query where Google shows results that you weren’t expecting”.
