Nokia & Apple settle & Facebook losing users?

Nokia & Apple settle & Facebook losing users?

Greetings from Exeter  to another SEO & Internet Marketing instalment from Skyline Marketing.

Facebook says they are “pleased” with their level of growth despite reports from “Inside Facebook” who reported that Facebook lost six million users last month in the US and 100,000 in the UK.

Facebook does not generally comment about statistics, especially from third-party analytics, however they said:

“From time to time, we see stories about Facebook losing users in some regions. Some of these reports use data extracted from our advertising tool, which provides broad estimates on the reach of Facebook ads and isn’t designed to be a source for tracking the overall growth of Facebook…”

“We are very pleased with our growth and with the way people are engaged with Facebook. More than 50% of our active users log on to Facebook in any given day…”

Inside Facebook also claimed that 1.5 million users from Canada left the social media site during the month of May.

However, beyond the negative statistics, Facebook still shows growth in numbers, just 13million away from that target of 700 million users Worldwide.

Part of the reason why users are closing their accounts is down to the unofficial “Facebook fatigue” where users either move onto other social networks with the ever popular Twitter going from strength to strength, or they just take a break and do not log on from time to time.  More users are also tightening their privacy settings to only allow their ‘friends’ access to their photos and comments, which makes life more difficult for Facebook in their quest to make more profits from different advertising streams.

In other news, Apple and Nokia have reached a settlement over patent litigation after a drawn out two-year dispute between the two companies.

In 2009, Nokia sued Apple over patent infringements and Apple had countersued also.  Nokia says they have now agreed a one-off payment from Apple and ongoing royalties for the use of its technologies.  This deal covers both sides of the dispute.

Nokia now sees this as vindication, however it now has the tougher task of moving forward and attempting to make up on last ground over the last few years from Apples iPhone.  This one product sent the most popular mobile phone company crashing down and now must battle to attempt to reclaim even a small percentage of the market share it once had.

Google’s Chrome Gets an upgrade (again)

Good Morning from a mild grey Exeter, Devon.

As you know Skyline Marketing are a SEO company in Exeter Devon, that offer a great service to our clients.

My sanity was tested by Chrome this weekend, so i’m very glad of this upgrade.  You may or may not have read my article a few months ago about Chrome vs Safari (battle of the browsers), well there’s a new twist.

I’ve been recently doing a lot of optimisation on a clients website and checking the work on Chrome, I must have been in and out of the site over 50 times, you know the story; clients pop in, phone goes, meetings to attend.  Well, stay with me, I noticed that on Saturday when I googled that clients site their search result came back with 3rd on Google page 1, happy days or so I thought, my Mac was busy running reports so I jumped on Adam’s PC and just happen to google the same client and they were 6th on page 2 for the same keywords, OMG !!! I went back to my Mac and did the same search on Safari and the search returned 6th on page 2 !!!!

Ok so I did go onto the same website a lot within a 7day period, but does this mean that Chrome working with Google Search returns the results it thinks we want to see, as apposed to what we are actually searching for ??? How can we trust Google again?

I’m sure the new “cookie” rule, which I tweeted about yesterday and todays update will rectify this problem or will it? Is Google data storing/IP profiling which is illegal?  Stay tuned for more info.

Thanks for reading,

Rob

 

 

SEO Companies

Good Evening from Skyline Marketing, the SEO Company in Exeter Devon.

This will only be a micro-blog as it’s Saturday night.

I really wish web site design company that claim to know about SEO would stop offering the service because they are really not very good at it.  It is like buying a television from Sainsbury’s or Tesco – yes it is going to be cheaper but is it any good?  Would anyone in the store know the difference between 1080i and 1080p ?  Probably not.   The same applies with SEO – do most website design companies know enough about SEO to be offering it as a service? I doubt it sadly.  It is just a case of “keeping up with the Jones”… XYZ designs offer SEO so we’ve got to !  Well don’t, just stick to designing, please.

 

Thanks
