    Social Media Demographics or Who is Using Which Sites?

    Posted by / in Marketing / Link

    I came across this really interesting infographic on social media demographics and just had to share it!

    Social Media Demographics

    As you can see, Facebook does have a lot more females than males but I was surprised to see MySpace up there as well. LinkedIn has the most educated users. What I would like to see is a cross-tabulation or cube of age/income/gender/education level. Any excel wizards out there?

    7 Links to Visit as you SEO your Site

    Posted by / in Marketing, Tips and Tricks / Link

    I conducted an SEO workshop this morning that was hosted by the Town of Newmarket (Ontario). The main topics were:

    • Overview of Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
    • Benefits of SEO
    • Principles of search engine-friendly design
    • Tips on how to apply SEO to your website
    • How to avoid the biggest SEO pitfalls that could lower your rankings
    • How social media can help boost your search engine ranking

    I wanted to share much more but unfortunately the 3 hours went by rather quickly. Instead of sending each attendee an email with additional links, I thought I’d share this with the community so all can benefit.
