    Like cliverederson, I’d never really heard of vertical search before this article. Thanks, Vanessa, for bringing this stuff to my attention and compiling it so nicely! I’m a firm believer that unique content begets new readers and viewers but I definitely agree that keeping people around has to be done through a mixture of building trust and rapport with them, as well as fresh content.

    I had never heard of the concept of “vertical search” but it makes a lot of sense. Especially on mobile, I think people fire up the Amazon app or Kayak app then search within them instead of opening Google by default on their browser. Great post.

    You’re right, I have been busy preparing for Mother’s day and my mom’s birthday which fell on the same week. The topic “Content Isn’t King. Trust Is King,” really hit me most because I’m firm believer that content really is the king in order to be successful. I will give these articles a read once I get home. Thank you for sharing these!

    “Trust Is King.” – Very true

    I like the fact that it is a quick reference to several things relevant to internet marketing all in one place. I have found out that my favorite is “Content Isn’t King” because of the high points that it makes. I share some of the same thoughts of the author when she author states that “it’s important to write for your audience and not for SEO.” Many times this idea is lost because of our desire to achieve traffic.
