• What Are Entities & Why They Matter for SEO

    Content, from an SEO perspective, is the connection of entities by relationships. In the statement, “SEO is dead” there is the entity “SEO”, there is the entity “dead” and there is the relationship that one connects to the other and the direction of the said relationship. All content is fundamentally like this. Google's John Mueller confirmed yesterday in a video hangout that Google does not use the BBB, Better Business Bureaus score or reviews as well as other third-party trust sites in their ranking algorithm. So all that talk about making sure you have a good BBB score with the core updates is really completely unrelated to core search rankings. The other day, Google launched a new portal named web.dev that pretty much has lighthouse, another Google tool, results for your audit. One of the lighthouse results is an SEO score. So I asked SEOs, should Google be scoring their SEO this way? Original Air Date: November 15, 2018

  • The scary truth about SDK spoofing and how to watch your back against ad fraud

    When marketers detect one kind of mobile ad fraud attack, the success is short-lived as smart fraudsters are sure to pivot to another. SDK Spoofing, a form of ad fraud where fraudsters are generating installs that look like the real deal, is perhaps the most frightening type of ad fraud because it is both incredibly elusive and expensive. Our host Peggy Anne Salz catches up with Michael Paxman, Product Research Manager for Europe and Japan at Adjust, a global leading measurement company providing analytics, measurement and fraud prevention solutions for mobile app marketers worldwide, to discuss the scary truth about SDK spoofing.

  • 3 Financial Models You Need for Your Startup - At Least

    Anne and Gillian talk about different dimensions of financial models -- or more clearly, how to paint the best financial portrait of your startup -- you need more than one dimension. This is not a one-size fit all situation. In fact, financial modeling is like a Rubik’s Cube. You know, the puzzle that starts with four colors all jumbled on all four sides, which you have to sort so that each side is its own color. There are at least three different ways to look at your startups’ financial situation: current customers, potential renewals, and sales pipeline, A clear financial picture of a startup comprises at least three different approaches that should be expressed separately in different sets of books. The point is to have better information on which to base decisions. Original Air Date: November 8, 2018
