Understanding The Time Required For Keyword Research
The process of researching your keywords isn't something that should be rushed. Each phase of the research process needs to be performed deliberately, ensuring that you take the time to find all relevant terms and discard the irrelevant.

However, not everybody is yet in a position to measure at that level.

They have remained, over the course of time, an indispensable collaborative tool I just couldn't do without.

Is Your Humanized Brand Suffering In The Social Web?
Social media relies on the premise that we'll believe what people tell us more readily than if we were told the same thing by a nameless, faceless company. That's why brands go to great lengths to humanize themselves on the social Web. But, a new study by Edelman (whose digital arm features social media and ebusiness genius David Armano) claims that bond is eroding. A survey of 4,875 adults (500 U.S.) world-wide shows that just 25% of respondents said their friends and peers are credible sources of information about companies - a decline of 20% since a similar analysis in 2008.
