  • Why Yahoo Will Never Reach The “Revenue Per Search” That Microsoft Promised Microsoft has effectively renewed its search vows with Yahoo a second time, pledging once again that Yahoo will indeed earn a high “revenue per search” that was promised back when the alliance was made in 2009. That’s not going to happen. When the latest extension expires in a year, the expected RPS still won’t be [...]

As a result, having a content curation and/or aggregation plan might be something to consider as a part of your long-term content marketing strategy. [...]

  • Apple Climbs To Sixth Place On Fortune 500 List, While Facebook Makes Its First Appearance After posting higher than expected profits in 2012, Apple ranked No. 6 on today’s 2013 Fortune 500 list.
