October 13, 2020 | seo | No Comments

The PR Maven(R), CEO & Founder, Marshall Communications, creating & implementing marketing/PR/personal branding strategies.

In today’s digital world, Google Search is pretty much everything. Google processes an average of over 3.5 billion searches per day and 1.2 trillion searches annually. That comes out to more than 40,000 queries every second.

And it’s not just searches for “cooking recipes” or “how to change a tire” that make Google the world’s most dominant search engine: Google Search is also home to “top stories,” user-specific advertisements and much more. It is essentially a one-stop shop for everything.

With that in mind, brands need to make their Google SEO — that is, where they appear in search results — a top priority. Whether you’re promoting a personal brand or an organizational brand, there are ways you can create and post content online that will make your brand show up with more authority and

A Seattle-based nonprofit launched to provide digital health solutions for poorer countries is applying its expertise to help with COVID-19 testing.

Audere is building software for administering rapid result COVID tests that can be integrated into products being developed by U.S. manufacturers that use saliva or nasal swab samples.

Local SEO is important, especially for small businesses that operate on a regional level, as opposed to a national level.

Though national SEO primarily focuses on ranking in searches for the entire country, local SEO focuses on narrowing the scope of search parameters, instead aiming to appear in search engine result pages within a specific local area.  

There are several steps businesses can take to improve their search engine rankings (order of appearance on result pages) that can ultimately boost the number of visits they get to

“Companies trying to grow, trying to increase engagement and retention, can’t do that if they don’t have actionable intelligence around quality issues,” says Anthony Heckman, head of growth at unitQ.

Companies compete around a variety of vectors, he explains. In the content arena, it’s incredibly easy for companies to copy functionality that works. Snapchat grows successful and Instagram launches Live. TikTok gets big, and Instagram launches Reels. A company can compete on price, but you don’t necessarily want to be the lowest cost provider in your industry. That means product quality is key.

13 Super-Easy Ways to Immediately Improve Your SEO

What comes to mind when you see the term “SEO“? Where do you focus all your energy when you’re trying to improve SEO ranking of your website?

Most people focus a large proportion of their time on “keywords” and not much else.
