• New Google My Business tweak to help product-oriented companies

    Posted on October 19, 2018

    Google My Business appears to be testing some changes that may be of particular interest to retailers and other companies that sell products rather than services. The Google My Business tool helps businesses control what internet users see about them, whether searching via Google or locating the business on Google Maps, and it allows Google […]

  • Ticket tout foiled by Facebook group

    Posted on October 18, 2018

    In the last week or so, some of my faith that Facebook can be a force for good has been restored by becoming a member of a group called the ALL IS LOVE: AF GANG. It’s a community of fans of the punk rock band Idles, and as the name suggests, the group is largely […]

  • Can DuckDuckGo break into the ‘Big Three’ search engines?

    Posted on October 17, 2018

    For a long time, SEO companies like ourselves have considered Google, Bing and Yahoo! to be the ‘Big Three’ search engines to monitor. Of course, it’s really more a case of the ‘Big One’, with NetMarketShare.com statistics showing Google to be responsible for 78.05% of the search engine market share, but if we are to […]

  • Four ‘green’ ways to use the internet

    Posted on October 16, 2018

    With last week’s highly concerning UN report urging that we have a little over a decade to prevent climate change chaos, ordinary people will no doubt be considering once more what they can do to play their part. It seems like Western governments are not really taking a lead. Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the […]

  • What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?

    Posted on June 8, 2018

    At a recent networking event, I gave a talk about discovering ‘why’ people do what they do with regards to business. This is something I’ve been thinking a lot about over the

  • Has the internet killed satire?

    Posted on November 25, 2016

    I love a good bit of satire. Whether it’s old episodes of Spitting Image, Aristophanes’ ‘The Frogs’ or a bit of the Daily Mash – nothing beats good satire. The problem is, does satire remain as satire when too many people believe it? For instance, the spoof news website BFN was originally set up with […]

  • So you think you don’t need a website?

    Posted on August 26, 2016

    Before I start this post, I must first apologise for the vitriol that is about to spew forth. John, our Content Team Leader, will have attempted to edit much of the hatred and anger from this but, if he’s caught all of it, the word count won’t be sufficient for a blog and you won’t […]

  • Why is Google better at searching Facebook than Facebook is?

    Posted on October 12, 2018

    Much as we continue to use and rely on it, Facebook is flawed and annoying – I think we can all agree on that by now. In my opinion, one particularly inexcusable thing it has never quite got right is its search function. It’s rubbish, and always has been. The best example of this is […]

  • What use are Twitter followers?

    Posted on October 8, 2018

    I’m about to say something you wouldn’t normally expect someone in online marketing to say – not all social media metrics are worth paper they’re printed out on. For example, I attended a

  • Google tweaks results to show more site content

    Posted on October 11, 2018

    In what may be either a trial or a rollout of a new feature, Google has started displaying more content from within sites in its results page. The move appears to have been spotted by SEMRush, whose tweet on the subject prompted Search Engine Land to write an article about the latest shake-up to the […]

  • Google+ – did it come too late or too early?

    Posted on October 9, 2018

    Google has confirmed that its social media arm Google+ is to be put to rest, at least for consumers, with August 2019 slated as the time by which it will be sent to the digital graveyard. Confirmation that the ailing social media was now in its death rattle stage came in a blog post yesterday. […]

  • Brew Cards Infographic, updated rules

    Posted on October 22, 2014

    Two years ago we produced our first ‘brew cards’ infographic, to help explain the complex rules we have here at Engage Web for brew making in the office. Over time our rules have evolved and grown, partly to make the selection process more exciting and partly to counter for the rule-bending shown by our project […]

  • The growing importance of infographics

    Posted on August 30, 2013

    In a world saturated with adverts, stories and statistics, and with the internet only a mere click away, there is a real danger of consumers being overloaded – trawling through so much information can be monotonous. A well-designed infographic, however, can set companies apart from their competitors and should also enhance brand awareness. So many […]

  • Content Engagement Infographic – how people engage with your website

    As a result of the many different ways people can engage with your website we decided to produce this (slightly disturbing) infographic showing how your website can stimulate the ‘share cortex’ of the brain. Social media is such an important part of Internet marketing these days you need to take advantage of it to make […]

    Posted on July 13, 2018

    Yesterday morning had a sense of ‘back to reality’ for many people, who woke up to an overcast, drizzly start to the day for the first time in weeks, coupled with the realisation that England had gone out of the World Cup, albeit a bit later than they usually do. For the team at Engage […]

    Posted on June 28, 2018

    Yesterday, some of us at Engage Web attended the European Search Conference 2018. Held at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool and forming part of the city’s International Business Festival, the event goes some way to replacing SAScon, which was held for the last time in Manchester last year. The event was certainly well staged – probably […]
