Enter The Digital Divide (Infographic)

Digital Divide

It’s no big secret that the Internet is changing the way we spend money, interact socially, conduct business, and portray our personalities to the world. What may be shocking is that this Internet revolution is actually leaving many individuals, companies, and entire countries behind due to socioeconomic divides. As we enter a political era that is anything but content, the growth of the Internet only further increases the disparity between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots.’ Continue reading Enter The Digital Divide (Infographic)

Why You Should Probably Quit Twitter: A Flowchart

Tweeting

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Twitter over the past couple of years, it’s that people either love it or hate it. Few fall under the category of indifference when their friends or family pull out their smartphones and start typing out 140 characters or less.

Two Companies Dominate the Automotive SEO Search Terms

Automotive SEO

There is something super-competitive about the automotive industry. It’s one that, for the longest time, had avoided the internet even when it was clear that it was here to stay. Back in the late 90s, many dealers didn’t even have a website. Today, most of their leads and sales come as a result of their websites.

It is for this reason that I thought it amazing that PCG and TK Carsites were the only two representatives for the term “Automotive SEO” on Google. Is the rest of the industry really that far behind, or are these two companies just dominant?

We’ll see. For now, it’s clear that the competition has a ways to go.

Either way, it doesn’t look good.

If Reddit Were in Harry Potter

New to Reddit

For the last two years, I’ve been a closet Reddit fanatic. Some would say I’m not technically in the closet because I spend a good amount of time there every single day (EVERY single day) and I have posted hundreds of articles to the site. The only thing I don’t do often is comment. That’s simply too dangerous.
