SHARE14 Conference: Mediative’s Take


  Our team was fortunate enough to attend BrightEdge’s annual conference, Share14. The conference was held in the heart of San Francisco, and featured new product announcements as well as guest appearances by the likes of Microsoft, Google, Adidas, 3M, and many more. Share14 focused on two core themes: the continued importance of content, and the state of the mobile revolution. Content & SEO In regards to content, BrightEdge, and their partners continued to reiterate how quality, authoritative content will be the way forward for many companies.

Google Gives Secure SSL/HTTPS Sites Ranking Boost


Having a secure website (i.e. https) may just give you a bit of a boost in search visibility.

(Additional information here). In essence SSL helps encrypt data that is being transmitted. HTTPS stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure. Original announcement from Google: http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.ca/2014/08/https-as-ranking-signal.html According to Google, “…over the past few months we’ve been running tests taking into account whether sites use secure, encrypted connections as a signal in our search ranking algorithms.
