There has been explosive growth in native advertising in 2014. Native advertising is defined by the IAB as advertising that takes the form of the content around the ad.

While native ads have been in existence since the early 2000s (with many considering Google AdWords as the first serious play) it has gained new momentum this year as the SEO landscape has changed so significantly.

Native advertising offers an unparalleled user experience. An overwhelming majority of consumers say that sponsored content doesn’t hinder their experience on a website. Consumers are also more likely to look at native ads and share them over display ads.

Content marketers are paying attention to the trend.

Native ads help circulate strong content, encourage sharing and earn unsolicited backlinks.

SEO in 2014 has been focused heavily on content marketing as Google has pushed the community to stop explicit link building. As small businesses create stronger content, they will also naturally start to think about how to more effectively grow their audiences.

Launching a native ad campaign is easy for a small business that is already engaged with SEO, social, and content marketing. Content marketing efforts have already created great content on the website and native advertising offers excellent click-through rates to bring more readers.

Having a blog with a consistent flow of content can grow a loyal reading audience, reinforce the brand, and gain backlinks the right way. Recommendation widgets, like Internal Discovery from Disqus, show suggested links to content already on websites and are easy to install. They allow users to navigate through more content, stay on the site longer, and encourage engagement.

Promoted social media posts provide the same benefits, and are also easy to execute. Mashable recently reported on a small business that promoted content on Facebook and saw a 19 percent increase in monthly guest volume and gross revenue as a result.

Google’s Matt Cutts posted on Twitter a link to Eric Goldman (a guy who knows his legal SEO stuff) story about how a law firm sued their SEO company. Not necessarily for not achieving the rankings they wanted but rather for violating Google’s webmaster guidelines and/or using spammy techniques.

Matt Cutts of Google called the claims “interesting.” Indeed. You often here of people suing SEO firms for not getting what they paid for but not for violation of Google’s guidelines. The court document reads, in part:

Greg Sterling at Search Engine Land asks some interesting what-ifs:

(1) Will SEO firms that go outside the bounds of established white hat SEO practice be automatically vulnerable to liability?

(2) Will the court limit liability in cases where the plaintiff has not done any due diligence on the SEO practitioner? In other words, what burden does a buyer of SEO services have to investigate the SEO firm? (Probably none.)

(3) What damages might be assessed in situations where a ranking penalty has occurred? (e.g., fees paid, lost revenue?)

(4) What might be recoverable when there is no Google ranking penalty?

Lesson for SEO firms working with law firms – be incredibly careful or just don’t do SEO work for lawyers. :)

Also, if the law firm does win in court for violating Google’s guidelines, I assume that will give Google’s guidelines a bit more clout and make them not just guidelines but maybe even “the law” in some sense. Which can be very scary.

Law Firm Sues Their SEO Company For Using Spammy Tactics

Haliburton, Ontario (PRWEB) May 26, 2014

Canadian web marketing firm First Page SEO has just launched a new website The new site is much more organized and easier to navigate than the old site, says Stephen Roome, President First Page SEO. We made the decision to roll our separate reputation management business content into the new main company marketing site… it just made sense, given that there is quite a bit of overlap between brand management protection and search engine marketing, adds Mark Coles, company founder and co-owner.

The site is broken down into five main service areas SEO Packages, Social Marketing, Keyword Bidding, Website Design and Reputation Management, and the service areas generally have four levels that range from basic to aggressive levels of service. We find both customers and prospects can understand categories and numbered-service levels more easily than trying to sort through dozens of individual program offerings by name. There was definitely some confusion happening with new site visitors because we had such a broad array of web marketing services … we had to find a way to present them in an orderly way, states Roome. In addition to the main service areas, First Page SEO still offers many la carte programs for those who want to pick and choose specific unbundled services.

First Page SEO is known for sharing up to date web marketing information, and they didnt forget to continue that useful information exchange by offering an extensive onsite marketing Blog that web entrepreneurs can subscribe to. We have been in the search engine optimization business for 13 years now; we go back to the early days of web marketing … before folks had even heard of the Google brand. We live and breathe web marketing. We work to stay current and run our own test platform sites on a number of themed directories that we own. So in many ways we are our own guinea pig and we can pass those benefits on to our customers in a timely way, says Coles

Last but not least, First Page SEO has a new logo. Its actually a variation of the old logo … with a more modern look. We didnt want to change it up completely because it is part of our brand and heritage, and the old logo is very well known. Its a different look, but folks will still know that its us and not one of the three or four fly by night imitators that have at times used our trademark name or variations of it, adds Coles

But the final version of the legislation, “watered down” in the words of one supporter, also showed the limits of that impact. The bill was severely weakened to mollify U.S. intelligence agencies, which insisted that the surveillance programs that shocked many Americans are a critical bulwark against terror plots.

The bill was approved 303-121, which means that most House members can now say they voted to end what many critics consider the most troubling practiceSnowdendisclosed the collection and storage of U.S. calling data by the secretive intelligence agency. But almost no other major provision designed to restrict NSA surveillance, including limits on the secret court that grants warrants to search the data, survived the negotiations to get the bill to the House floor.

And even the prohibition on bulk collection of Americans’ communications records has been called into question by some activists who say a last-minute change in wording diminished what was sold as a ban.

“People will say, ‘We did something, and isn’t something enough,’” said Steven Aftergood, who tracks intelligence issues for the Federation of American Scientists. “But this bill doesn’t fundamentally resolve the uncertainties that generated the whole controversy.”

Though some privacy activists continued to back the bill, others withdrew support, as did technology companies such as Google and Facebook.

Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan, the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said, “I believe this is a workable compromise that protects the core function of a counterterrorism program we know has saved lives around the world.”

Its clear that Google and YouTube rankings are some of the most sought after rankings, but if youre an e-commerce site or looking to sell a product another search engine comes to mindAmazon. Amazon is the worlds largest online retailer, so its incredibly beneficial for your product to show up first on this websites result pages. Fortunately for you, with a little bit of effort you can optimize your product pages in just a few minutes.

When thinking about optimization, it helps to split up your product page into the different section you can find on Amazon and then see how you can optimize each one. Here is howto get stared:

As with any type of optimization for the web, keywords are going to be important. On your product detail page, you will be able to add in a title as well as a subtitle, which is the perfect opportunity to include keywords. Try to use your keywords at the beginning of the title if possible and make sure everything sounds natural. The more specific you can be, the better.

Make sure you always have a solid description of your product, not only because consumers want to hear more about it, but because this is how Amazon will determine what your product is all about. In other words, using keywords in this description is a must. Other search engines besides Amazon will also look at your product description if they are crawling Amazon (so just about every single search engine), so you kill two birds with one stone if you take the time to write a solid, keyword-rich description.

You actually have two different places where you can add text to your product listing: in the description section, which is lower on the page, or the product description, which is above the fold. Below aretwo different screenshots of the same page, the first showing the description above the fold and the second showing the description below:

Reviews have been a hot topic recently all around the web, and Amazon is no exception. Reviews are more unique content about a product and are usually trusted by consumers, so Amazon likes to see a product page with a good number of reviews. There are a few different things you can do to help promote positive reviews on your Amazon page:

Remember, you are not allowed to post fake reviews or pay someone to leave you a review (whether its through a free gift or otherwise). This is against Amazons policies,andyour listing could be banned so make sure to use some of the approved tactics mentioned above.

All the quality content in the world won’t help your search rankings if your site has structural or other technical issues.

In the age of “Penguin,” “Panda,” “Hummingbird” and other big Google algorithm updates, winning the search engine optimization (SEO) game means publishing high-quality content that earns links. But all the quality content in the world won’t help your search rankings if your site has structural or other technical issues.

We asked the SEO community to weigh in on the most common technical issues that can adversely impact your site’s search rankings today. Many of these technical challenges, such as duplicate content, have been around for years. But as the SEO game matures and evolves it’s even more important to clean up site messiness. After all, successful SEO is one third on-page optimization, one third off-page optimization (such as backlinks), and a third clean website structure that’s free of technical issues, according to Bill Sebald, owner of Greenlane Search Marketing.

Here are the top 10 SEO technical issues in 2014, according to nearly 30 experts, along with tips on how to address them.

1) Duplicate Content

Almost all of the SEO professionals we queried cited duplicate content as a top technical concern. Simply put, duplicate content is any content that is “appreciably similar” or exactly the same as content that resides on your site, according to Google Webmaster Tools.

“Google’s crawlers must cover a lot of ground,” says Michael Stricker, U.S. marketing director for SEMrush. “Google can’t consume all of the data, especially when one considers that Google must revisit each page again and again to find changes or new material. Anything that slows Google’s discovery or crawling of the Web is unwelcome. Dynamically created websites that create Web pages on the fly from databases are frequently misconfigured from an SEO point of view. These sites may create lots of pages, or URLs, that contain basically the same content, over and over.”

Other sources of duplicate content include the use of both “plain” and secure protocol URLs (HTTP and HTTPS); no expressed preference for a versus (without the www); blog tags; and syndicated RSS feeds.

Duplicate content can also result from common content management system (CMS) functionalities, including sorting parameters, according to Johnny Ewton, Web analyst for

The remedy is to crawl your site looking for duplications and apply “crawl directives” to inform Google of the relative value of multiple URLs, Stricker says. You can use “robots.txt” (a file that allows you to control how Google’s bots crawl and index your public Web pages) to tell Google the specific folders and directories that are not worth crawling.
