Don’t have the time to read all the marketing news, blog posts, announcements, and other content related to SEO/social media/online marketing published each week?

I’ve got you covered.

I sift through trillions (well, hundreds) of online publications to stay on top of marketing news that might affect your online business.

Let’s start with the news from Traffic Generation Café.

7 matt cutts videos to increase traffic7 Old Matt Cutts Videos That Can Still Increase Your Traffic Today

Whenever Head of Google Webspam Matt Cutts comes out with a video explaining something about SEO, it’s worth watching, at least at some point.

Of the 510 videos he’s created, many of them really do offer great (some of the best) SEO advice, but it’s, unfortunately, getting buried by time.

For future success and furthering your SEO knowledge, it’s important to bring back some of Cutts’ advice from years ago that still rings true today.

This is a guest post by Amanda DiSilvestro.

  1. Hi Ana, me again!

    I’m pretty sure when I posted a comment here yesterday, it turned my link automatically into a hyperlink, which was unintentional (I was just trying to show you the you-inspired post I wrote). So it probably went down as spam.

    Anyways, the essence of what I was saying was: thanks for these weekly round-ups. They’re super useful!

    And also: I got round to knocking up that blog post inspired by your 202 bitesized tips. Only got to 75 bitesized copywriting tips and then ran out of steam (you have more stamina than me obviously).

    But of course I gave you and Traffic Generation Cafe a big shout out. You can see it at the top of the blog on our site, which I won’t make the mistake of linking too this time!

    Cheers for your awesomeness :)

  2. Hey Ana, these weekly round ups are pretty darn useful! Have you got any tips for someone (i.e. me) wanting to do a similar kind of weekly piece?

    By the way… remember I said I’d do a blog post inspired by your 202 bite-sized tips?
    Well I’ve only gone and done it!

    And yes, of course I gave a big fat shout out to Traffic Generation Cafe. You can see the post right up there at the top of my blog on http://www.creative-copywriter.net/blog

    (A cheeky little tweet from yourself would be much appreciated :))

    Thanks for doing your thing!

    Great to know all the things and hoping to catch all the others that I previously missed.

  4. Hi Ana,

    Always look forward to your weekly roundups because they contain SO much of information for us. Good homework for us for the weekend I’d say. I didn’t know about the Facebook changes so that was something I learnt from your share, and also a lot about Matt Cutt’s recent videos.

    Thanks once again for all that you do. Have a nice and relaxing weekend :)
