At the start of a new financial year, as you are starting your new plans for the coming year, it is a great time to ‘dust off’ your messaging and corporate descriptors and give them a spring clean!

LinkedIn is a great place for networking, researching contacts and searching the job market, but it also has true value as a B2B lead generation tool.

In the video Roth discussed LinkedIn’s influencer programme and how it has been opened up to give every LinkedIn member the ability to write and publish content on LinkedIn, how it rates this content and some insight into the algorithms behind creating content.

The Great Debate - Do I Need to Make the Switch to HTTPS?

Posted by ITPR News

07/10/14 16:37


In August Google announced that they would be giving a “lightweight” ranking boost to secure sites. By ‘secure sites’ Google is referring to the encryption that can be applied on a website that protects the personal details a visitor has provided in order to make a purchase or subscribe for a service.

Google keeps the details of its algorithm under lock and key, but the reason behind this latest change is explained in a blog post at Google Webmaster Central.

Beyond its own product offering, the team behind Google believe that HTTPS encryption is a step-forward in the goal of making the Internet a safer place.
