The 5 Key Pillars You Need for Epic Content Marketing Success

Twitter announced their new tool Quick Promote which is a faster and easier way to promote tweets on their platform. Aimed at small and medium sized businesses (SMB’s), the new feature will allow brands to promote their tweets directly from the Twitter analytics dashboard.

Previously, advertisers could promote tweets only on Twitter’s bespoke ad platform.

Twitter and Google have again signed an agreement. This is to provide Google with access to Twitter full stream of tweets. Commonly known the Twitter “firehose”, the news was formally announced on Twitter earnings call by Twitter CEO Dick Costolo.

Costolo did not announce it during formal presentations but rather as part of an answer to a question which was not even specific about Google. He confirmed there was a deal, and after that said that he does not have any more details to be shared at that time.

It can be very displeasing when a webmaster gets a notification from Google that they have done something against the guidelines and they now have a “manual action” applied to their site, resulting in negative impacts on their ranking and traffic from Google.

Google disabled more than 524 million bad advertisements and banned 214,000 advertisers in 2014. According to Google’s Bad Ads Report, they disabled 700,000 sites in 86 different languages. The annual report shared the eradication of bad ads, which Google defined as those touting counterfeit or harmful products, such as firearms and cigarettes or misleading the consumer.

Google has announced that now you can see third party apps in your Google Now cards. However this only works on Android with about 30 third party apps. So now, instead of getting customary Google Now notifications on traffic, weather, flights, packages and so on- you can now directly get data in your Google Now cards from third party sources outside of Google.
