Your business SEO strategy may currently be based around link-building – where specific paths are created to lead directly to your website and increase your search engine ranking – but this is no longer the best way to promote your website.
Although Google once allowed the tactic of using link generation as popularity votes, it wasn’t long before they realised that fake link-building could lead to some websites gaining an unfair advantage in terms of popularity and ranking. The old system of link-building could in fact be easily manipulated by web builders to enhance their SEO ranking which led to Google introducing penalties to counteract the problem. Google has now discovered a smarter way of measuring the popularity of your website – and it’s called social media.
If you have a Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn account for your business, you probably already have a group of “fans” who are willing…

But what if you’re bad at Tinder?
Naturally, I can’t solve all your problems. But experts from across the country, as well as Tinder’s own Sean Rad, have hooked us up with some solid advice.
Tinder represents a new phase in the era of online dating. At one point, the only real online dating options were eHarmony and Match.com, and their rich, divorced customers were usually looking for something more serious. Then came OkCupid, asking you to browse photos in the cold blue light of your computer.

We shouldn’t be surprised that the strongest brand in the world is looking to buy another solid brand. Far beyond the guffaws of audiophiles and tut-tutting of those who know what Apple would do, we find a place where a massive investment in Beats would make some sense.
First, understand that Beats is a successful hardware startup in an era of fizzling hardware profit. Most of Beats’ competitors are also-rans at best and there isn’t a single audio company that I can think of with the same numbers or the recognition. There are a number of headphone companies that own the low end but these are krill in the oceans of commerce, rebadgers that buy cheap and sell high. Then there’s the high end.
