Don't Let Your Webmaster Accidentally Ruin Your SEO

by Nick Stamoulis

Your webmaster is probably pretty awesome and fantastic at their job. But one of my SEO client's webmaster made some big mistakes when they redesigned their website that has sent their SEO into a tailspin.

A Simple Overview of Product Listing Ads

by Mike Fleming

You have an e-commerce site? Are people searching online for the products you have on your site? If you answered yes to both, there is no good reason why you are not running Product Listing Ads (PLAs) on search engines (Google now, Bing soon).

Namely, if the searcher typed in the exact product name, these ads are serving them the exact result they're looking for....
