    @richard-hobbs @admin Hi Richard and Ben, I was wondering whether you might have any advice, regarding this email challenge that Barney is facing? Is it ISP related?

    Hi Janet, Hummingbird is the latest algorithm update from Google. It is part of their drive to embed the semantic web within their methodology. Google wants you to write more and share your knowledge (and not worry about technical SEO so much). I think that this will be a gradual transition, in that meta data / keywords etc still count. Here is a…[Read more]

    I would be interested in Ben’s view on this one @admin ….my understanding is that Google will see this as two websites – so you are splitting your link juice (it’s a different language really, isn’t it?).

  • Just finished a Skype call with a group of members from The Marketing Compass. The subject was LinkedIn. We discussed:

    * The importance of the very top part of your Profile (particularly the text just underneath your name: this appears when you are mentioned within LinkedIn – it should describe what you deliver!)
    * Your photograph (smiling and…[Read more]

  • Thank you so much @rwillox and @admin this is a big help!

    Good stuff James (PS my username is @admin – you can tell what someone’s username is by either visiting their profile, or the cheats way would be to hover over their avatar wherever you see it in the site and see what the link says – the last part id the username).

  • Hi David, I will ask Ben to get back to you, re this. All the best, Nigel @admin

    I saw that your tag was @admin just after I published the post! It can be tricky to get the right balance, and it really does depend on the market you’re in and the time you have to spend on each item!

    And people think this Internet stuff is easy! 😉

    Wow, that’s very visual Adam! We’re doing all of these things (some more than others), I wonder how many our members are using? (PS, my username is @admin – as the administrator for the site!)

  • @admin Hi Ben – I can’t seem to find the marketing strategy document you sent to me – please could you resend it. Thanks

  • @admin Hi Ben, thanks for your email. I thought I’d share this for the benefit of others.

    The other day I asked, “Is there a way I can reuse content by using PHP? For example, the testimonial column is a . Is it possible to store this as a PHP file in the Vigilance child theme and then call it up so that one change will change every page on which…[Read more]

    • Thanks Malcolm, as you’re probably aware – the WordPress plugin library is very extensive and there’s a solution for just about any problem out there.

      I’ve found using plugins to allow you include PHP within various parts of the site can be very handy as different parts of the site use different computer languages!

      All the best

      • Nerds corner: Hi Ben, Before Nigel reminds me that I should be focusing on other things, I’d like to share this with you. The plugin that I talked about allows me to incorporate the equivalent of PHP include commands into the WordPress page (but not the sidebar so far… may be a directory problem). However, the PHP document that has been included…[Read more]
