If you haven’t played with Ubersuggest in the past few months, give it a try. Type in a URL or a keyword and click around. The reason I am asking you to give it a try is that I need your help to determine what I should develop next so I can help you improve your traffic and rankings even more. But before we get into that, let me first tell you what I am releasing in the next few months.

Everything You Need to Know About Billboard Advertising

I don’t own a car in Chicago, but I do take the train (referred to as the “L” here). On the L, most of my commuting companions pass the time by looking at their phones. But, my motion sickness prevents that, so I typically find myself watching the world — and many, many billboards — go by. And I must say: Some billboards can be very, very entertaining. Now, billboard advertising isn’t your typical inbound marketing methodology. So why are we writing about it? Billboard advertising can still be a powerful way to build brand awareness and attract customers.

There are so many elements that a top-notch landing page needs, and making those elements the “best” they can be often depends on what your landing page goals are. Take form length, for example.

Everything You Need to Know About Instagram's Secret Shadowban

When you’re trying to grow a following on Instagram, you depend on hashtags and engagement to expand your audience and reach. So it can feel more than a little disheartening when it suddenly seems like your content isn’t showing up anywhere. If you feel like your posts are receiving fewer likes and comments, or aren’t appearing for certain hashtags, you might be shadowbanned. From Instagram’s point of view, shadowbanning makes sense. Shadowbanning allows Instagram to filter out accounts that don’t comply with their terms. Some people use inauthentic measures to expand their Instagram following, like automated bots or hundreds of hashtags irrelevant to their content. If that’s the case, it seems only fair for Instagram to block those accounts, so users can continue receiving genuine and helpful content. While Instagram doesn’t openly admit to shadowbanning, they released a statement in February that addressed the problem users were having with their content not showing up for certain hashtags. Their statement at least confirms the hashtag dilemma as a real one — but many speculate that the[…]
