Visibility_14: Final Highlights Recap

Visibility_14 search marketing conference logoI recently had the opportunity to attend the Visibility_14 conference hosted by Searchmetrics in Chicago and it featured a great lineup of speakers covering a range of search and content marketing topics. It is always great to attend shows and bump into industry leaders in our “backyard” here in the Midwest.

Over the course of this week, I’ll provide specific notes, insights, or key takeaways that I think are worthy of sharing from the conference.

This post features a collection of stats and insights from several presentations as I wrap up the series.  Stick with me as some of these quick hits and points read (nearly) as fast as the pace of a Marty Weintraub presentation…minus the awesome graphics and energy. Read more

This post features a presentation titled “The Future of SEO–a business view” from the CEO of Searchmetrics, Tom Schuster.

Relevance has been important for a long time, but it is really critical to understand what that means for your business and to make sure you become a “brand” for your niche in the search engines. Google continues to push relevance in the term of context and is much less focused on keywords. Be relevant, authentic, unique, and outstanding in your niche and ensure that users find you for the right reasons, stay, and buy. Read more

Design 101: What is Kerning?

Kerning. What’s kerning you may ask? Well, most designers will tell you it’s the cause of many headaches in design. Kerning is the spacing between each letterform in a font. Kerning can vary from very tight kerning (letters very close to each other) all the way to wide kerning (letters spaced far apart.) Wide open kerning can have a very “breathable” feel to it, making it easier and a bit more calming to read. That isn’t to say that tight kerning is hard to read, though sometimes it can be. But when kerning goes wrong, it makes most of us designers cringe. Read more
