Social media is more than just a place to share your thoughts. It’s a piece of digital real estate you can leverage to compel some form of progress, whether for you (as an influencer) or for your company (as an asset).The larger your audience, the greater chance you have to inspire a positive, desired outcome. Are you selling a product or service? Are you hiring? Looking for a donations? Trying to get users to test a new product? An active social audience can help you with all of these things.
ChangelogThis week, we take a quick dive into a couple of enhancements in our Projects Section. First, within Site Audit, we‘ve added a new warning check — “Homepage Does Not Use HTTPS.“ As you know, security has become quite the ranking factor in Google and this check will alert you if, in fact, we do not find HTTPS on your homepage.Next, we look at the new SMM (Social Media Monitoring) tool. Since its launch a few weeks ago, we‘ve already seen huge improvements and additions.
You could say I have a bit of a reputation for using GIFs in Twitter chats.It all started with Tumblr. My competency with reaction GIFs is a result of my time spent on that site. On Tumblr, users post reaction gifs with their reblogs (a way you share or repost on Tumblr, retaining the original source, occasionally known as ‘rebagel‘).

Recently, SEMrush launched the social media tool to help you track your social media campaigns and compare yourself to your competitors.

Well, I am prepared to hopefully answer those questions and provide you with a little more insight on this new tool.
In 2013, lawmakers in the U.K. passed the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act. The controversial law shields content aggregators and archivists from costly legal repurcussions from authors of so-called "Orphan Works" if an unsuccessful "diligent search" was conducted in order to locate the original creator.The law is somewhat vague, however, in the language used to denote what exactly a "diligent search" entails.
As a former customer support specialist, I understand the most commonly asked questions by customers. One of these repeated questions was about the traffic graph. “Where did this huge dip/spike come from?” You would constantly monitor the traffic for a particular domain and out of nowhere this huge dip occurs in the graph. You prepare for the worst.
ChangelogOur video changelog this week highlights some enhancements to our report filters. Within the Full Search (or Phrase Match) Report found in the Tools section of our navigation menu, you‘ll find a new filter for “Number of Words.“ This filter does exactly what it sounds like it would do. You can now choose to include or exclude keywords that are greater than, less than or equal to a determined number of words in the keyword/phrase.
