Google will start rolling out its responsive search ads to more accounts in English, French, German and Spanish starting in September. Responsive text ads can display with three headlines and two descriptions with up to 90 characters each. In the meantime, the company is extending the added real estate benefits of these longer units to existing text ads.
Go to local events or Meetup events and connect with bloggers in your industry. An example of an event I run to connect with bloggers and people in the online marketing word is: http://www.meetup.com/Online-Marketing-Sydney/. Make friends first and then try to gain guest posts later. I am not really a fan of websites which are flooded with guest posts one after another; it is the type of thing which Google is just waiting to target.

Hi, my name is Dimitrios and I am responsible for Crave Culinaire’s digital marketing. I would like to drive more traffic to Crave’s blog. Since Crave Culinaire is the only catering company who provides molecular cuisine, I thought about craving a blog post about that. The influencers in this niche have great success in utilizing recipes on their blogs. I will share some recipes of Brian Roland, owner and head chef of Crave Culinaire.

Google started testing responsive text ads this spring and announced at Google Marketing Live in July that the new ad format would roll out globally over the next few months. Unlike with standard text ads, with responsive search ads, Google uses machine learning to determine which combination of headlines and descriptions to show to a user. Advertisers can enter as many as 15 headlines and four descriptions.
I love your post. I keep coming back because you always have great content I can use in my business as well as share. Since I own my own Digital Marketing company I guess you would be one of THE influencers in Internet Marketing field. I just started my business and because most influencers on twitter are talking about Content Marketing, that is what I have been writing about. But my site is only about a month old so I will just stay consistent in my writing. I’m also in the process of changing my navigation bar so be know how to get to what they want faster. Which would be “what is SEO”, etc. Thanks and would love any advice you can give me.

No. ETAs were the first major change to Google Ads text ads in fifteen years; the new ‘optional’ features won’t cause another resource management crisis for you or your teams. In fact, these improvements come at a perfect time as more and more advertisers are experimenting with Google’s Responsive Search Ads. Consider ETA improvements as an intermediary step before you jump straight into RSAs.


It gives you more opportunities to test. If ‘always be testing’ is your motto, (which it should be), you can add all of Google’s text ad variations (Standard text ads, Expanded Text Ads, Expanded Text Ads improvement, RSA) to the same ad group and test them against each other. Go ahead - change the ad creative settings to ‘optimize for clicks/conversions’ and start testing! On that note, Google has informed us they plan to make ETA improvements compatible with ‘Drafts & Experiments by the end of August.
Thanks Jure. That actually makes sense. Exactly: I’ve tested lowering the number of tips in a few posts and it’s helped CTR/organic traffic. One thing to keep in mind is that the number can also be: the year, time (like how long it will take to find what someone needs), % (like 25% off) etc. It doesn’t have to be the number of tips, classified ads, etc.
Brian, great post as always! Question: Do you consider authority sites (industry portals) a form of “influencer marketing?” e.g. guest blogging, etc? In some niches there are not so many individuals who are influencers (outside of journalists) but there are sites that those in the industry respect. I am in the digital video space and for me one site is actually a magazine that is building a very strong digital presence. Thanks, keep up the good work!

Hey, Matt! Thank you for your sharing, and I learned much from it, but I still have a question. We began to do SEO work for our site 2 years ago, and our organic traffic grew 5 times ( from 8K to 40K every day). But two years later, it is very difficult to get it grow more, even it drop to 3.2K every day. So can you give me any advice to make our site's traffic grow again? Thank you in advance!
Although contextual advertising in general refers to the inclusion of advertisements adjacent to relevant online context (e.g., Google AdSense), in-text advertising places hyperlinks directly into the text of the webpage. In-text advertising is commonly available from In-Text Ad Networks like Kontera using technology such as IntelliTXT, or offered by publishers using Ad Serving technology from PowerLinks Media.

So, Google has accepted the reconsideration request, you can now move forward with creating high-quality link building and a content creation strategy. I see every one creating threads about great content marketing examples, but the problem is that most of the time these are big business examples. SME’s and start-ups do not have big dollars to do such things, so the next best thing is to is to create a content market calendar for your clients. 
If you check out some of the suggestions below this though, you're likely to find some opportunities. You can also plug in a few variations of the question to find some search volume; for example, I could search for "cup of java" instead of "what is the meaning of a cup of java" and I'll get a number of keyword opportunities that I can align to the question.

As with many head-to-heads, the choice here is largely determined by circumstance. That said, I do think that banner ads carry the day for most advertisers. The one requirement: you need to have a vision for your banner. Businesses that deal in visually striking products or have a clear path towards creating something naturally eye-catching should find this relatively simple. Other groups will need to innovate and in some cases, turn to text advertising.
If a web page is not listed in the first pages of any search, the odds of someone finding it diminishes greatly (especially if there is other competition on the first page). Very few people go past the first page, and the percentage that go to subsequent pages is substantially lower. Consequently, getting proper placement on search engines, a practice known as SEO, is as important as the website itself..[citation needed]
