The latest comScore numbers indicate that Google still has over two-thirds of the search market share, and some people believe that number is actually quite a bit higher. There’s no question that search marketers will need to focus mainly on Google in the near future.
However, between the Bing it On Challenge and the claims that their image search is superior to Google’s, Bing hasn’t been afraid to try grabbing some of that share. Now, however, it seems that Bing will be moving away from pure search and focusing more on search apps in order to compete.

There are seemingly endless ways to make your content stand out when it comes to content marketing. Maybe you can provide a unique perspective or voice that others in your industry don’t have. Maybe your content will get attention because it’s fun and entertaining.
The most basic possibility, however, is that people will link and share your content because it’s the best source for a certain topic. This is where content marketers are using the term “skyscraper content.” While the concept is extremely broad, it could be hugely beneficial for gaining exposure and establishing yourself as an authority.

It’s that time again. Google’s Penguin 3.0 update has officially rolled out after about a year of silence, and the reactions so far have been mixed. Webmasters and SEOs will likely be doing one of three things as the update takes effect: enjoying a surge in rankings due to a clean link profile, seeing no change in traffic, or scrambling to fix low-quality links.
Fixing spammy links involves either contacting the webmasters that are linking to you or using Google’s disavow tool. Unfortunately, despite much discussion, Google has failed to make it clear when people should actually disavow links.
