Not Provided Is About To Reach 100%

Posted by in Analytics on September 23rd, 2013 0 Comments

Kevin Gibbons of Blue Glass UK led the workshop about Advanced Link Building tactics, and the message that was most clear to me throughout the whole day seemed to be that we digital marketing humans have got to focus on other humans. Over the past few years, we’ve heard so many clichés over and over again: ‘SEO is dead’, ‘Content is King’, ‘Big Data’ and it struck me that maybe now we’ll be hearing ‘Make it for Humans’.
