“We are not artists, we’re not writing novels – we need to remember we’re commercial writers.” – Nicky Bullard, Creative Director of Lida.

Last year Google started providing site owners with reports on its assessment of mobile usability, primarily looking at three overall factors: how well the site fits into a smaller screen size; whether the font size adjusts correctly for readers on mobile devices, and how well-spaced buttons and links are for pressing with fingers and thumbs. Google was able to start reporting on this because its crawlers (the software with which it discovers and catalogs content on the web) had become advanced enough to accurately replicate what a user’s experience of your site would be. The changes being rolled out now by Google simply takes these factors and makes them part of the algorithm by which pages and content are scored and ranked.

Ever wanted to reach a specific group of people, whose email addresses you just happen to have, without emailing them? Facebook Custom Audiences, along with Twitter Tailored Audiences, is the way to go. These products allow you to target users by email address when they log into these social platforms. So we can only target by email address across social media, right? Perhaps not so for much longer.
