So the new series of Silicon Valley started last week. While watching it, one of the characters refers to the oncoming “Datageddon” on the horizon. Another character then bands about that there are too many -geddons happening. As we’ve been blogging about previously, everyone is gearing up for Mobilegeddon tomorrow. To save you having to trawl through numerous timelines and feeds getting in a tizzy, here are the top tweets mentioning #Mobilegeddon.
So Birdman won Best Picture at the Oscars a few hours ago. We’ll tell you what it won’t win: ranking number 1 for the term ‘Birdman’ (it sits at the bottom of the first page). Much like Michael Keaton losing his marbles, the site doesn’t have an XML sitemap or Robots.txt among a whole host of problems. But enough about movies having poorly optimised sites, let’s see what is going on the digital marketing world today.
Monday morning drama in the office today as our office pup caused a fuse to trip and everyone’s computer to go KAPOOT. So while some of us hope and pray that file recovery is working properly (and some of us wisely conserve laptop battery), here’s what going on in the digital world over the last few days.
There are three types of people in any office. Those who channelled their inner 12 year old and stayed up to watch the Royal Rumble who now suffer from extreme fatigue, those who don’t know or care what one is, and those like me who are putting a severe no spoilers warning on anyone who so much as utters the words “royal” or “rumble” in conversation.
Happy Monday morning everybody. Hope you all had a good weekend and didn’t have to spend the first half hour of your morning commute in the driveway scraping ice off the wind shield. It’s colder than cold outside today and with a big freeze set to continue all week, it’s getting so cold that our poor fingers are having a hard time thumbing through our phones to provide a welcome distraction to the start of the day. You don’t have to suffer the same fate though.
It’s miserable outside today. Grey skies. Wind battering against the windows. Relentless rain. It’s fantastic inside Boyd Digital HQ though (apart from the fact we forgot to buy coffee this morning). We have soul music blaring through the speakers and the office pup is here. So what’s going on in the world of digital marketing this week?
That final rush to get all work out of the office door and delivered so you can get the festivities going is what most minds will be on this week. In between panicking over who needs what and making sure you don’t go over deadlines, it’s important to remember the most important part of the work day: reading tweets disguised as work.
The first week of November aka “Fireworks making you jump out of your seat every few hours” week is in full swing. After a fun filled Halloween weekend and a comedown from the sugar overdose of unclaimed trick of treat goodies, all eyes on are the big names who are suddenly panicking about their back links and how Groupon is only catching on to what their audience might want.
The Monday morning blues are in full swing in the office today. After a cracking weekend of doing our best to beat UFC fighter Robert Whiteford at table tennis and watching Glasgow Warriors thrash Bath on Saturday, all eyes on now on checking to see if there has been any change from the Penguin update that rolled out late on Friday.
Winter has most definitely come to town today. Plenty of folk around town suddenly decked out in scarves and gloves. We’re predicting a 125% increase in the number of people gripping on to their mugs in the morning for a bit of warmth. If the weather stays this way, we’re keeping our eyes out for an increase in hot water bottle searches this month.
Rain rain go away. No seriously. Go away. Today Glasgow is greyer than normal and not even a good dose of Fleetmac Wood (yes we’re spelling that right) is wiping away the fact that autumn has truly settled in. So while we all get ready to huddle around the heaters and the consumption of tea goes up 300%, let’s see what goes on in the world of digital marketing
Glasgow has been like a baked Alaska this past weekend: warm on the outside, cold on the inside. With all the Referendum hyperbole reaching its conclusion, our eyes are once again back on Twitter in search of every nugget out SEO news out there. Sifting through hundreds of automated ‘#seo #google’ tweets is enough to drive a person mad, but when a gold star tweet is found, well we just have to share it.
Kicking off the working week and hearing Paul Simon and Sting just announced a gig together in Glasgow is enough for us to go searching for the best songs by both (Englishman in New York & You Can Call Me Al respectively of course). If you disagree, then tweet us and let us know which you think arebetter. And while you’re at it, you should see what we’re reading about on Twitter this morning.
It’s full steam ahead here at Boyd Digital HQ as we get ready for the trip down to Brighton SEO next week and meet with some like minded folk to talk about search marketing and all thing SEO. We’re going to be hosting a little round table event of our own down there (you can get free tickets soon), and if you’re not going to be making the journey with us, Grant will be holding a Google Analytics Advanced event here in Glasgow in a few months time too, which you can grab tickets for here.
The midpoint of the month for us working folk means the enviable slump as focus wains and thoughts turn out when its going to be the weekend again (only 4 days folks). With the first lunch of the week over and that need of a good cuppa to perk up and push through the res tof the day, keep up to date with what’s going on the world of SEO by having a quick breeze through these important tweets.
