Twitter Doubles Tweet Length to 280 Characters

Who doesn’t love Twitter?

That rambunctious well of pithy brevity and censorious outrage has just doubled tweet length, causing social media marketers to urgently rewrite six-month’s worth of tweets which were calendared in Hootsuite.

There are other things you need to do. Read the post for key actions and follow me on Twitter: @BelmoreDigital.

Forbes Etc NoFollow External Links

Every now and again, there’s a little ray of sunshine as I write the news articles.

And the news that guest post link spammers Forbes, Inc and Entrepreneur had nofollowed their links shone a light which brightened up my dark, dark soul.

It just shows that when Google fires a warning shot across the bow, people tend to take notice.

Read about it and ping me if you want to discuss.

This post discusses Google running into a bit of trouble with links. After going through a period of penalising LinkSpam, Google has been ignoring bad links algorithmically more recently. This has now led to a rise of new spam techniques, especially with the rise in Content Marketing. It’s likely there will be a focus on linking penalties in the near future. 

If you would like to discuss ways Google is ignoring links, and ways to generate good quality back links, please feel free to contact me.
