How We Picked Our Top Internet Marketing Articles
If you’ve been following our blog, then you know we like to publish articles that are very detailed, easy to understand and also contain actionable tips that can be applied by across many different types of businesses.
As usual, we like to avoid giving you a list of dozens of articles to catch up on so 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 2014.
We hope you’re able to apply at least one thing from them to help improve your online marketing in 2015.
