“Will google ban my page if I duplicate someone else’s content?”
Myths like these induce fear in the hearts of marketers whose aim might be to only publish the best content for their audience. There are forum posts, Reddit threads, technical audits, tools, and even SEO news websites that are putting up articles that show people clearly don’t understand how Google treats duplicate content. They tend to ignore Googles’ guidelines on Duplicate content. But, firstly we should know about what exactly do people mean by duplicate content.
Duplicate content is content that appears on the internet in more than one place. That “one place” is defined as a location with a unique website address – so, if the same content appears at more than one web address, you’ve got duplicate content.
Last new year’s eve, I had taken time off.
It was fun. I will never forget. Standing soaked in the rain with family and rest of the humanity at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. 2002 in Mumbai at Marine Drive was one other New Year welcome, I remember witnessing.
Just a couple of weeks ago we were making lead and traffic projections for 2019 for one of our inbound marketing clients which is a SaaS company. While we were very excited for the optimistic goals we were setting up for ourselves next year, a critical question struck us. Can you guess what that question could have been? We, in fact, threw a similar question at you in one of our recent blogs: Inbound Marketing Hacks for 2019.
I am sitting at my desk, having a cup of coffee, preparing for our fortnightly google hangouts meeting with one of our clients. I look up at the clock, its already 4 PM. The meeting is at 5 PM. Fortunately, the client calls and tells us they’ll be half an hour late. I take a deep breath, a ray of hope to prepare better. Why did I need to prepare better? Today we as an Inbound Marketing Agency were putting a strong case for our client to have a pricing page on their SaaS website. I initiated the idea so I had to own the debate. I take time preparing for my case. Studying resources and articles over what would be best for the client.
Avengers, Black Panther, Deadpool 2, Incredibles 2 (14 years later), a football world cup, a royal wedding, 2018 was huge! But what did that mean for us marketers? Well, more movies and more football obviously! But no seriously, as someone that has been an inbound marketer for just under a year, there’s so much I learnt – the good, the bad, the ugly.
I’m going to attempt to summarize some of my biggest learnings from 2018 in the hope that we can use some of these to make 2019 better and bigger!
Within HubSpot, we have come up with a great idea in which marketers can independently create web pages and landing pages without the help of the developers. This is in the form of drag and drop which can be called kitchen sink, as seen in the below image. HubSpot COS Design manager ( Beta Version ) has some great improvements in the custom module ( also adding the individual CSS and JS), so marketers can easily make it.
I try and avoid the amount of sugar I put in my body. But that doesn’t stop me from spending hours and hours just browsing the various dessert options I could get delivered at the most ungodly hours. Most times I save them in my cart and forget about them (takes everything I have). But then there’s days when that food delivery app I use sends a notification with that blueberry cheesecake, with the caption “Your cheat meal is due now at 50% off!”(I know right!!).
Today, almost all forward-looking company’s have invested a considerable portion of their marketing budgets in inbound marketing. It’s a way of creating educational assets and marketing strategies to benefit the consumer and in turn getting business by proving your expertise to them. Lets delve deep into what to look for in an inbound marketing agency.
The benefits of inbound are out there. Companies have made millions if not billions just by monetizing their inbound marketing strategies. This has created a rise of inbound marketing agencies all over the world leaving hundreds of options to the consumers of this service. However, before you go off on a search for an inbound marketing agency to work with, you may want to hold your brakes (what! why?). There’s a good number of agencies out there yes, but not all of them will offer what they claim.
As a kid, I was always in awe of how my dad had the answer to everything. Math, my physics projects, action movies, sports, pictionary, Taylor Swift songs (sorry Dad), he knew it all. I used to wonder how it was possible for someone to have such a vast array of knowledge in so many different fields. When I asked all he used say was ,”Start reading”. At the time I used think yeah right, like I can read about all of this stuff, but cut short to today I realized that apparently I can!
