Well I’ve been a very busy little bee over the past couple of weeks, so much so that I haven’t even found time to pen a little GrowTraffic blog post; my clients have had loads but the GT world has been woefully neglected. Fortunately, Simon Dalley’s been stepping in to fill the blogging void, so I think we’ll probably survive, however it’s about time I started to pull my blogging weight so here’s a quick little post to keep you going.

OK, I’ve got an age old query for you here, lovely blog readers, about the things that you upload to your social media accounts and to what degree they should be controlled.
First of all, let me give you the background. In our family, I work from home as a Freelance SEO Copywriter. I run a digital marketing and SEO consultancy with my husband who has a day job as a Marketing Manager; it would be fair to say that our household is pretty digital marketing orientated.
Unavoidably, social media is a massive part of our lives; both my husband and I have personal accounts for multiple platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest etc.) and we also both manage the social media accounts for our own companies and often some for our clients too. Believe me, that is one heck of a lot of social media to keep track of and I dread to think how many hours of our lives we have spent glued to our phones or our laptops.
Naturally, we’re both also aware of the value of a good social media policy, especially in the context of a business’s online marketing campaign. Just for the record. Read more

Never one to be deterred by simple boredom though, I thought ‘well, I am supposedly an SEO Copywriter, I’d better watch this and keep abreast of the current trends in SEO’. I know; dedication or what?! Sometimes I think I deserve a Nobel prize for my unrelenting devotion to all things Search Engine orientated.
One of the things that I love most about being a Freelance SEO Copywriter is the fact that I can work from home; it’s great, everyone should do it! Having previously worked in large, open planned offices with lots of people, all having different conversations either with each other or on the phone, being able to work in the peace and quiet of my own home is bliss, plus I’m at least twice as productive as I used to be.

Google is on a mission. Yes, I know what you’re thinking; world domination. Although it may seem like that at times, Google’s more laudable raison d’être, so they would have us believe, is to provide the multitudinous users of the World Wide Web with access to the most accurate information and the most unique and original content.

Over the last year or so there has been a big move in the search sector towards guest posting, if you’ve got a blog or a news page on your website you’ve probably already received emails asking if you can post a guest post on your blog. I know I have. I’ve also been involved in outreach trying to get guest blogs and I’d like to share some of my experiences around this. Read more
