Content marketing is relatively new in the SEO domain, but within a very short span, it has made enormous strides and evolved a lot. The evolution is particularly visible in the type of content that search engines like. Looking back, you will discover that when we talk about content, we refer to content between 350 words and 600 words. This used to be the norm until not very long ago. Known as short form content, this was the only type of content that we were familiar with even a year ago.

However, looking at the way search engines accept content you will find that the assumption does not work well. Search engines do not have much liking for short content. The rapid rise in the demand for long-form content bears testimony to it. Google results show that long form content ranks better than short form content and marketers are keen to go after it. The demand for short-form content from marketers is on the decline and whatever little remains; it is from the audience only. (more…)

It does not usually take a trader very long to hear sayings about the stock market. Some even seem plausible. Perhaps one of the best known phrases is sell in May and go away. It’s a nice catchy rhyme, and it does have its merits, since summertime often brings on doldrums in which stock prices languish in a sideways choppy move.

All of this is geared towards greater efficiency, profitability, and effectiveness of business operations. The workplace is a hive of activity, and with unemployment falling to record lows in the US, the world’s #1 economy is quickly heading towards full employment. Where does that leave folks who are seeking opportunities in the workplace?

Often, new business owners will wrestle with the notion of e-commerce versus traditional bricks and mortar enterprise. There are merits to each, but the pendulum tends to oscillate towards the lower-risk option of home-based enterprise. For starters, e-commerce offers multiple opportunities to enter the competitive retail arena with minimal investment. Getting started with a business idea requires a blueprint for the future.
