To be effective, these different tactics must all be employed harmoniously, all pointed toward the same goal and working in a complementary fashion.

What is Responsive Design—and Why Does it Matter?

Does responsive design really matter?

To the layman, all websites may seem like they’re constructed in roughly the same way—different in content and design, to be sure, but erected with the same basic building blocks.

How to Write Headlines That Get Results

Headlines that grab attention

The headline is arguably the most important part of any blog entry or Web page you write. The headline is the first thing your reader will see—and what’s the old saying about first impressions? If your headline doesn’t strike the reader’s interest, it’s simply not very likely that the rest of the content will get read—and as such, the best content in the world can be rendered all but useless by a weak or unengaging headline.

Fine-Tune Your Hashtag Strategy

Hashtag are good for

It’s not uncommon for hashtags to be used as punchlines or gags—Jimmy Fallon has a recurring Hashtags segment on The Tonight Show, for example—but for those who wish to use social media to boost their business, hashtags are no laughing matter.

How Google Search Analytics Guides Content Marketing (Part I)

ENC blog 03 16 HowGoogle

When Google first launched its Webmaster Tools panel, some years ago now, it was met with a decidedly lackluster response. Though Webmaster Tools was fine in theory—providing information about particular keywords and connecting them to real leads—it never actually panned out the way it was supposed to. Simply put, the keyword research Google provided was never particularly good, and there were much better tools on the market that did the same thing more effectively.
