  • Yahoo Issues First Transparency Report, Shows 42% Of All Data Requests From U.S. Yahoo has issued its first transparency report and, not surprisingly, it shows that the U.S. is the source of more governmental requests than any other country. The report covers the first half of 2013, a time when Yahoo says it received almost 43,000 requests from 17 different governments.* The U.S. was the top source with […]
  • Google AdWords’ Breakthrough Feature Makes Offline Conversion Optimization A Reality Yesterday, Google announced a new offline conversion tracking feature that will likely change the way lead generation campaigns are tracked, measured and optimized.

This fallacy has to come to an end now. Some of the best examples of effective social media marketing that I’ve ever seen come from small businesses. A classic example is the Ashkenaz Cowboy […]
  • Kenneth Cole’s Syria “Boots” Tweet Causing Another Social Media Storm Kenneth Cole is at it again. A tweet published earlier today is causing another social media firestorm for the fashion company.
