Well, at any rate, Fred has been making the rounds and our communities have been busy trying to figure out what, exactly, it is.

It’s that time again! Pinterest, Twitter, and YouTube are the topics du jour. They don’t get a lot of coverage in our communities, usually, so this is quite a treat! On SEO Chat, one of our senior members, Prof.stan, has started a thread all about marketing strategy on YouTube. There’s a new thread about 404 errors (spoilers: Google usually doesn’t care about them). On WebmasterWorld, members are discussing Twitter’s recent... [Read More...]
