If Vodafone Group Plc (VOD) and Liberty Global Plc (LBTYA) really want to dominate the phone, cable and wireless market in Europe, they should quit competing and try merging.

The companies were among large cable and phone operators that gobbled up smaller players in more than $200 billion of European deals since 2011 to gain customers and market share. A merger of Vodafone and Liberty would be the next logical step, according to Bank of America Corp. Vodafone Chief Executive Officer Vittorio Colao told Bloomberg News last week that John Malones Liberty could be a good fit at the right price. A deal would create the biggest company in Europe selling bundled packages of mobile, phone, Internet and TV services.

A combined company could see a 3.2 percent jump in earnings per share from the deal by next year, were Vodafone to offer London-based Liberty a 20 percent premium, or more than $80 billion including debt, and pay for half in cash, according to Erhan Gurses, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence. Acquirers paid an average premium of 20 percent for cable assets in the last five years, he said.

It makes a ton of sense because Vodafone just bought cable companies in Germany and Spain and theres the sense that once you start on this track you dont stop, said Amy Yong, a media analyst at Macquarie Capital in New York. At the end of the day, Malone is not emotional about business. Hes rational, and at the right price he would obviously let Liberty go.

Selling mobile services alongside fixed offerings such as TV and Internet access in quad-play packages helps carriers generate more revenue and makes it less likely that a customer will leave. Thats vital for companies like Newbury, England-based Vodafone that have been struggling with oversaturated markets in Europe and sluggish economies that are eating into revenue. Even in the U.K., Vodafones home market, the wireless operator is only the No. 3 mobile provider.

Liberty, which has forged resale agreements with wireless providers, has also found that adding mobile service to its broadband and video packages cuts customer defections and increases sales, CEO Mike Fries said last week, appearing at the same New York conference organized by Goldman Sachs Group Inc. at which Colao spoke.

Most SEO campaigns are destined for failure because expectations are too high, budgets are too low, decisions are made based on assumptions instead of data and customer expectations are misunderstood.

Whether you’re managing a campaign yourself, or you’ve hired an SEO professional, ask these 7 questions to determine if your campaign is on the right track.

Setting unrealistic goals for your SEO campaign, such as dominating Google and Bing for every product or service you offer right out of the gate, will most always result in failure. Instead, set realistic objectives for your campaign and achieve success incrementally. For example, most businesses offer multiple products or services. If your business falls into this category, it can be daunting to achieve top rankings for everything you offer. With an incremental strategy, you can optimize for one product or service, and after you’ve achieved success, move onto the next product or service and so on.

Also, keep in mind that a successful SEO strategy can be perceived as unsuccessful only because the goals are so completely unrealistic.

This is a big one. Most businesses do not have realistic timeframes or budgets for their SEO campaigns. They want results immediately, and at the same time, are only willing to make a minimal investment. Consult with an SEO professional and determine what a realistic timeframe and budget would be for your type of business. The more competitive your industry, the greater timeframe and larger budget you should expect. If you go into an SEO campaign with a short timeframe and unwillingness to make the necessary investment, it will most likely fail because you are not giving your SEO professional the necessary time to test and make adjustments needed for a successful long-term campaign.

Optimizing for the wrong keywords is common and often the cause of an SEO campaign’s failure. Ideally, you’ve hired an agency or professional to manage your campaign and they’ve chosen the right keywords after performing extensive keyword research. However, if you’ve selected your own keywords based on what you “think” your customers are searching, without verifying with real data, it’s highly probable that your campaign is not using the right keywords.

Analyze keyword data using a reputable keyword research tool and see what keywords your (successful) competitors are using, to make sure you’re optimizing for the right keywords.

If you have failed to select the right keywords, then you’re either not delivering enough traffic to your site, or not delivering the right traffic or a combination of both. A quick sniff test to determine if your campaign is delivering the right traffic is to look at your site’s bounce rate for organic search traffic. If you see a high bounce rate for organic search visitors, then what they’re searching for is not consistent with what they’re finding on your website. It’s important to distinguish the bounce rate for organic visitors from other visitor types (i.e., direct visits, referral visits, etc.) so you can make informed decisions based on your organic search traffic specifically. If you have a high bounce rate for all visitor types, this means you may have a larger issue to address, such as your website.

A successful SEO campaign starts with a professional website that engages visitors upon arrival. Visitor engagement is crucial to a campaign’s success, because engagement ultimately results in conversions, which is how most businesses measure a campaign’s success. The lack of a professional website discredits your brand and therefore reduces engagement and conversions.

Here are some questions to ask when evaluating your website:

Hector Guzman said he’s participated in several peaceful protests all across the valley, but when protesting for worker’s rights in McAllen, he felt his rights to free speech were trampled on twice.

Action 4 News was there when police showed up at the May Day protest in McAllen where Fuerza Del Valle gathered to protest wage theft and workers rights.

“We dont have tons of money to hire fancy lawyers. All we have is our right to assemble, our right to free speech, this is the tool that workers have to make their grievances known to society,” said Fuerza Del Valle Coordinator Hector Guzman Lopez.

Guzman said police and city code enforcers told demonstrators they were in violation of a city noise ordinance and needed to stop or be cited.

We’ve been having direct actions, marches, protests all across the valley from Brownsville to Mission, Pharr, San Juan. Almost every action and we never encountered this violation of free speech,” said Guzman.

Guzman said it happened again two weeks later, when also protesting workers rights.

We asked the City of McAllen about their noise ordinance back in May just after the protest.

They said that amplified noise and use of bull horns were prohibited because it creates a disturbance, but Guzman said the city does not enforce the ordinance evenly across the board.

We have not heard of any other incident where this has been enforced either not at football games, not at other protest, pro-immigrant protests, anti-immigrant protests, happened in McAllen,” said Guzman.

His lawsuit points to other incidents where shouting and bullhorns were also used, such as the protest held last month at the bus station by a group named the Border Convoy.

First Amendment Rights Can Be Terminated – Video

Now that Robert Copeland has finally resigned as a police commissioner in Wolfeboro, N.H., after referring to President Obama with a vile racial epithet, there seems to be a move afoot in some quarters to portray him as a victim of political correctness and a martyr in the cause of free speech. He is neither, and to think so betrays a thorough misunderstanding of constitutional rights.

Copelands remark, which contained a racial slur preceded by an obscenity, was overheard in a restaurant in March by a resident. She brought it to the attention of the town manager and the other two members of the police commission, an elected body that hires, fires and disciplines police officers and sets their salaries. When confronted about it, Copeland, 82, was hardly apologetic, writing in response that, I believe I did use the N word in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse. For this, I do not apologize he meets and exceeds my criteria for such.

Earlier this month, about 100 residents attended a public meeting that was held to discuss the issue. Given that Wolfeboro, a wealthy resort town of 6,300 residents, has no mechanism for removing public officials between elections, many of those who attended were there to urge him to resign. Eventually he did, much to the relief of other town officials, who feared that his widely reported remark might lead to a boycott by potential visitors this summer.

Both at the meeting and subsequently, defenders of Copeland have suggested that the public outcry that greeted his remark was an example of the thought police stifling his free speech rights. Actually, the whole affair was a vindication of free speech.

The First Amendment provides that Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech or of the press. That is, government may not interfere with freedom of expression. It does not guarantee, however, that free speech will be free of the consequences it may incur in the marketplace of ideas.

In this instance, Copeland exercised his right to speak his mind if, in fact, he still has one and defended vigorously his right to do so. That did not mean that those who learned of his views were obliged to treat them with tolerance or refrain from exercising their own speech rights. Constituents of an elected official are under no obligation to remain silent when that official expresses views, even privately, that they find repugnant. In fact, many residents of Wolfeboro may have felt that their silence could have been interpreted as an endorsement of, or at least acquiescence in, Copelands slur.

So they were perfectly free to call on him to resign, and people living farther away certainly had a right to express themselves by threatening a tourist boycott. Just because a person has a right to say something doesnt mean that he has a right not to be contradicted, or to be immune from public condemnation.

The faith of the nations founders was that so long as government was barred from prohibiting speech it deemed dangerous or offensive, unsound views would be exposed as such in the welter of public debate, and wiser counsel would prevail. Thats what happened in this case.
