New Algorithm Update?

Some business owners may not be aware that Google is rolling its new mobile friendly algorithm in the next month with an added ranking factor; page speed.

Right now page speed isn’t a ranking factor in Google search results which is why this is all the more interesting. The update (which hasn’t been given an exact date) also fits with the pattern of Google focusing on the user experience in its mobile update. It focuses on factors such as small texts and links being too close together.

When you have carried out the required work on your website for every 1 second of improvement,  you will get up to 2% conversion increase. Which is pretty good!

Star Wars; Marketing Masterminds?

Today is national Star Wars Day, and to celebrate it we thought today’s Blog post should be dedicated to the franchise itself! With Aim High Online being big Star Wars Fans it was hard not to say no!

Since Disney first starting promoting Star Wars back in summer last year, how many times have you seen Star Wars? Whether that be on a cereal box or a duvet set?  More importantly, even if you are not a die hard Star Wars fan, how many times have you reached for the Star Wars branded products? You’ll be surprised, even when I was doing the weekly food shop I found myself reaching for the Star Wars branded cereal just because it had Darth Vader on the front and included a lightsaber spoon. I’m not even a die hard fan!

“Search for your feelings, you know it to be true.” Darth Vader – It goes without saying that the Star Wars franchise elicits strong emotions within their fan base and it isn’t just the powerful story lines. They effectively market to people of all ages.Even at the age of 19 I found myself buying multiple Star Wars themed products, Star Wars Water, Star Wars Pasta and so much more. Why? Everywhere you look, Star Wars is there.   -ontargetwebsolutions.com

Star Wars started feeding their huge fan base with small drips of information  on the upcoming film back in November, slowing building their empire up with teasers and trailers, leaving their fans with always wanting more and full of anticipation.  And with the Star Wars brand every where you look, its easy to understand how Star Wars made an estimated $936,234,288. 

With the next film due to come out next year, you can expect to see all of Star Wars’ marketing techniques all again!

May the 4th be with you!

Mobilegeddon take 2?

As most business owners will know, the 21st of April marked 1 whole year since Google rolled out its first mobile algorithm update. From them, any website that was NOT mobile friendly would be penalised and knocked down on Google’s rankings.

More and more people are using their mobiles only for the web as the days go on, 189 million Facebook users alone only use their mobiles when using the app.  Google have now issued new warning signs for site owners to get them responsive before the deadline

You can see that the warning sign is in plain sight, with the aim to get you to so something before the deadline. What is different about the algorithm compared to the original last year is that Google will be knocking websites off the first page as well as all the other pages completely if you are NOT mobile responsive.

With business on the 2+ plus page of Google only getting 6% of impressions compared to 94% of business on the first page, can you afford to be knocked off the rankings? We think not!
