Your brain is your command central, and it controls everything you do, including all online activity. In order to seamlessly take care of everything that we do in the course of a day, year, and lifetime, our brains have to turn to some clever hacks. As such, if you want to get the jump on your customers and your potential customers’ purchasing habits, it’s a good idea to better understand the shortcuts their brains take in the process – not in a creepy cult-like way but in a taking-care-of-business way.
You know that SEO hygiene matters, but you may not be sure how to get down to business in terms of cleaning yours up. Fortunately, a better understanding of the basics can help you get a better handle on your business’s SEO hygiene – rendering it sparkling clean in the process.

When it comes to your Google Ads, if you are still thinking in terms of broad match modifier (BMM) keywords, you may need to pull over and absorb this next bit. In early 2021, Google began phasing out these keywords and began a targeted expansion of key-phrase matching in its stead. The complete transformation was achieved in July of 2021, which means that any BMM keywords you’re looking to for guidance are now phrase-match keywords masquerading as BMM keywords. And if you rely on both BMM keywords and phrase matching, you may be double-dipping with keywords in a manner that doesn’t behoove you (or your site’s ranking).
It’s 2022, and no matter how you slice it, it’s a lot. Search engine algorithms never sleep, but there are steps you can take to help you keep up and maximize your potential.

In fact, if we’ve learned anything in the 2020s, it’s that an amalgamation of both generic and local results is the ticket when it comes to digital traffic. And towards this end, there are five primary factors on which you should keep a sharp focus when it comes to your digital marketing.
The old adage that the customer is king remains just as true today as it was the day the term was coined. If you run a successful business, you owe your success to your customers, and pouring your tender loving care into customer support is paramount. Having a sleekly automated online customer experience – from initial research through purchase, receipt, and support is great – but the bottom line is that this pipeline has to work, and your customers need to feel heard in the process. The third wave of customer service – after tasks and workflow – is refining your customer support practices, including incorporating AI search and natural language processing. Let’s take a closer look at the importance of this and how The Web Guys can help.

It is fair to say that 2020 has been a game-changer in every industry, and digital marketing is no exception. Many office buildings, work floors, and other workspaces locked their doors and instructed their employees to set up shop at home. It was an eventuality that no one saw coming – and that many wouldn’t have considered possible before the pandemic. Fortunately, the resourceful and flexible digital industry – as a whole – has managed quite nicely. This isn’t to say, however, that it’s been easy or that there aren’t ways we can continue to stay nimble and to roll with the evolving landscape of the new normal.
