Bonfire in The West: Google Panda 4.0 and Remarketing

Posted on 23rd May, 2014 by

The Bonfire word just keeps spreading…

Our CEO Clay Cook has recently been called upon twice to share his expertise on new developments in the Digital Marketing space.

Firstly, The West Australian Marketing & Media section recently featured an article on the latest trend in Digital Marketing, Remarketing. Clay shared his advice for businesses wanting to take the leap into Remarketing.

Just this week, Google announced the release of its latest algorithm update, Panda 4.0. Clay told todays readers of The West Australian not to fear the update. If website owners are using ethical SEO practices then the update will have little impact.

You can take a squiz at both articles below.
