Overwhelmed by all of the Internet marketing articles that have been published this year? Not quite sure which ones to read and which ones to skip?
We know how you feel and for this reason we have compiled one simple list of our own top Internet marketing articles from 2013.
These are articles that not only provide lots of useful advice, but also tips that can continue to be applied to your online marketing efforts going into the new year.
How We Picked Our Top Internet Marketing Articles
If you’ve been following our blog all year, then you probably know by now that we like to publish articles that are very detailed, easy to understand and also contain actionable tips that can be applied by any business.
Since we wanted to avoid giving you a list of dozens of articles to catch up on – knowing that can be overwhelming – we put together some qualifications to determine which of our articles were “top” post material for the year. The main qualifications are as follows:
- Volume of social media engagement (likes, shares, comments, etc)
- Discussion activity (post comments)
- Traffic (unique visitors, returning visitors)
- Backlinks (links from other websites and blogs)
- Time Sensitivity (still relevant / applicable)
After reviewing all of our articles from this past year – specifically looking for the qualifications and metrics above – we are proud to present our top 5 Internet marketing articles from 2013.
We hope you’re able to apply at least one thing from them to help improve your online marketing in 2014.
