It cannot overstate how much new business comes to you via SEO.
This week, I see the ongoing debate and new features by Google to help you with SEO. An interesting development with Pinterest proving that it is growing and it may be time to rethink whether Pinterest advertising is right for you. I also found a number of great new authors who shared their experiences using LinkedIn for B2B and community building using Slack.
Have a great week and enjoy these 9 articles for the week!
