  • How good content speaks for itself
    You can optimize your copy for search engines to attract visitors to your site, but unless the content's good enough to stand on its own, they may not have any reason to stick around or come back, writes Sharon Flaherty. Flaherty advises marketers to populate their sites with content they "believe is interesting" and think like their readers when they're judging whether content is good enough. eConsultancy.com (3/18) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Google says changes to AdSense code will speed loading times
    Google has overhauled its AdSense code, making changes it says will cut page-loading times by at least a half-second while correcting issues that previously delayed page loads by an average of 12 seconds.

  • More consumers air customer-service complaints on social media
    The majority of U.K. consumers surveyed by YouGov believe the recession should have spurred businesses to improve service to keep them as customers, but only 5% say that's actually happened. The survey also found that about 20% of consumers use social media channels to air their grievances more publicly than with more traditional methods, including e-mails or calling the company. eConsultancy.com (3/18) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Bill Clinton says an e-commerce "consumption tax" is needed
    Former President Bill Clinton argued in a speech that some sort of "consumption tax" should be instituted on e-commerce sales to maintain fairness and competition between brick-and-mortar merchants and online retailers, which have grown far beyond the fledgling status that spurred him to sign the 1998 law that largely exempted e-commerce companies from collecting sales tax.

  • White House to lobby Congress for a "privacy bill of rights"
    The Obama administration is hoping to tackle the intrusiveness of Internet data collection by promoting a bill that would set up guidelines to require companies to ask permission before using consumer information for any purpose other than for which it was originally provided. Sources say the Commerce Department will ask lawmakers at a Senate committee hearing today to pass an Internet privacy bill, and to strengthen the authority of the Federal Trade Commission. A similar proposal has come from Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and John Kerry, D-Mass. The Wall Street Journal (3/16) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

In this video, Adam covers some of the most common ways that Internet marketers are taking advantage of mobile marketing to grow their businesses and make money promoting others. ClickBank Blog.
