Why Your Content Isn’t Getting Shared on Twitter - SimplyMeasured
You’ve been working hard to develop a great piece of content, spent countless hours working on creative thought leadership that solves real problems for your target audience, and set measurable goals for the campaign…but it’s not moving the needle with your social audience.
Oreo Envy: The Real-Time Marketing Myth - Digiday
“The Oreo tweet was a great idea for a marketing execution, but it doesn’t mean it’s a great idea for a continuing strategy – often marketers mistake seizing a moment in one instance and take that as how to execute in further events, but you can’t plan and manufacture that kind of serendipity,” said Matt Britton, CEO of agency MRY.
Hummingbird is “the biggest overhaul to their engine since the 2009 ‘Caffeine’ overhaul (which focused on speed and integrating social network results into search) and that it affects 'around 90% of searches.’ The main focus was that the new algorithm allows Google to more quickly parse full questions (as opposed to parsing searches word-by-word), and to identify and rank answers to those questions from the content they’ve indexed.”
