So Panda hasn’t battered your website for thin, useless or duplicate content. You’ve taken the necessary steps to “Panda-proof your website.” Blogs are a great way to drive traffic and build brand awareness, but there are other types of content you can offer your visitors besides blogs. Here’s a list of some types of Panda-proof content that you can add to your website that your visitors will love.
Any post written with the aim of helping people correctly use grammar is wonderful, and I’m in no way complaining, but why do people seem to fall back on the usual “your vs. you’re” or “there vs. their vs. they’re” tips? I think that by focusing so intensely on grammar rules that are obvious and have arguably reached saturation point, we’re ignoring a lot of other rules that are trickier and more confusing.

The fifth film in the Die Hard series was released yesterday. The new flick, A Good Day to Die Hard, not only prompts us to marvel at how many film titles they can come up with from the words “die” and “hard,” but also causes us to wonder how many more action scenes they can squeeze out of an aging Bruce Willis. (My bet: many more. He’s looking really good for his age.)
If you possess both a sense of social awareness and an Internet connection, you know talk of Go Daddy’s Super Bowl commercial oozes from the Web kind of like that attention-grabbing, smooch-induced saliva leaked from Bar Refaeli and Jesse Heiman’s locked lips.

Everyone says content is extremely important for SEO. But why? Here we examine Search Engine Optimization (SEO) with Google as the primary example.

If you’ve ever spent time on BuzzFeed, you know the site can best be described as one giant, addictive, and amazing time suck. I follow BuzzFeed on Twitter, and when the site tweets the headline of its newest article, I click through to the article almost every time.
