Bloggers: Social search and the freedom to focus on quality

Social search is changing the game for business owners who blog and create content. Thankfully, it’s changing things in our favour and that’s what today’s post is all about.

SEOs stand by: More Google updates on the way

If you’re an SEO you’re probably having a relaxing time at the moment.
