Understanding SEO: What is a Bounce Rate and Why Does it Matter?

Whenever someone clicks onto a website, stays on the page they landed on, and then clicks away from the site entirely (or worse, clicks the “back” button), that’s called a “bounce”.

Just Like Detroit: SEO Is Learning to Engage

I love Detroit. I used to think I was the only one, but people around here are starting to get engaged.

5 Cute Tricks That Make Headlines Work

Headlines are the single most important part of any online (and most offline) content. It’s the headline that determines whether or not the rest of your content even gets glanced at, much less read.

Just Like Detroit: SEO Can Be As Easy As Fixing Broken Stuff

The city of Detroit is rebuilding itself as we speak, and quite a bit of that work is going into rebuilding things that were once great and aren’t anymore. As The Architectural Record put it last September: In Detroit, the statistics are jarring: The city has 26 jobs for every 100 people, 47 percent of [...]
