Here’s the most common problem I see when it comes to conversion rate optimization (CRO): Not putting enough energy into conducting the proper initial research into what to test.

A sitemap is (usually) an XML document, containing a list of pages on your website that you have chosen to tell Google and other search engines to index. Google often uses the sitemap file as a guide to the pages available on your website — even though it may decide not to index every page you list on your sitemap. The sitemap also carries information about each page, including when it was created and last modified, and its importance relative to other pages on your site.

There are two ways to do marketing. Throw money at ads and gush out content hoping some sort of ROI will be made.

We all remember what happened when Apple CEO Steve Jobs passed away, hundreds of thousands of people voluntarily lined up outside of Apple stores, flowers in hand. They were mourning the loss of a great tech visionary but also paying tribute to the creator of a brand that they felt a deep emotional connection to. Apple doesn’t just have a bigger market share than Microsoft (at least, with smartphones), it pulls at the heartstrings of millions of consumers. It is true that supplying helpful information to customers will reduce buying risks and add practical value, but what’s more powerful is…

We are in the middle of a cultural shift. This evolving change is highly visible in the current state of communication. As attention spans continue to shorten, the significance of the novel and long-form is giving way to the 140-character tweet, the ephemeral 10-second Snapchat (with an optional caption) and listicles. While all these forms may have their detractors, their impact is still undeniable. Web design has responded to the pressure of shorter attention spans with placing a higher emphasis on the landing page. When today’s web-savvy visitor lands on your homepage, you have mere seconds before their mind generates…

So how does Google work? Have you always wanted to know? Well, you’re in luck, Google decided to disclose their “secret sauce” on April 1, 2002, by announcing “Pigeon Rank.” “PigeonRank’s success relies primarily on the superior trainability of the domestic pigeon (Columba livia) and its unique capacity to recognize objects regardless of spatial orientation. The common gray pigeon can easily distinguish among items displaying only the minutest differences, an ability that enables it to select relevant web sites from among thousands of similar pages.” Sounds pretty unbelievable right? That’s because it is. If you’ll notice the date mentioned above,…
