As I read through the numerous articles and blog posts that I have subscribed to, in the last week, I realized one thing. Today’s internet marketing is only about 3 things:
- Social Media
- and Whitehat Slow built SEO
One might feel that there is nothing new in it. You are grossly mistaken then. You probably did not notice the term “Only” in the above paragraph. Gone are the days when everything from automated link building from sites that mushroomed on the internet during the monsoons, only to be found nowhere the next monsoon… to buying links and stuffing keywords anywhere and everywhere including your names as you comment on other blogs. What is thriving today is planned and slow built Whitehat SEO.
Social Media is another aspect. It is going to need a slightly different term to use in the days ahead, because today Social Media is focussed on Google +, Pinterest, Facebook and to some extent Twitter. Of all these Facebook is once again the most used and discussed which will be evident in the below selection for this week’s roundup as well.
Hope you enjoy these handpicked articles from around the internet.
