SEO Doesn’t Have To Be A Shot In The Dark. To many startups, search engine optimization (SEO) is a task that sits on their company’s back burner.

SEO Doesn’t Have To Be A Shot In The Dark

With features to launch and customers to support, the idea of spending time fiddling with your title tags can seem like a fool’s errand. That’s especially true when there’s no guarantee that your hard work will result in a single additional visitor from Google. That’s one of the reasons that a recent study ranked SEO as the third most important marketing priority for startups (behind social media and content marketing). Why do startups tend to shy away from SEO? From working with dozens of startups, I’ve found that founders hate the uncertainty that comes from SEO.

Backlinks, content and page speed are key Backlinko recently teamed up with a handful of SEO software companies to evaluate the factors that are most important for success with SEO today.

Portugal Moves Forward to Resuscitate the Market

Portugal's casino market is in recovery. Year-on-year Increase According to the country's governing regulating body, the market indeed recorded a year-on-year increase for 2015, a step in the right direction towards restabilizing itself to the levels it was at before a precipitous decline. According to the Associação Portuguesa de Casino (ACP), the 11 operating casinos posted revenues of €288.6 million ($312.8 million) last year, improving 8% from the 2014 12-month period.

It is no different to when we were going to join the EU and there were international trading companies that would not fit into the onshore tax regime. We adapted, changed and thrived. I also believe that when there is a certain critical mass – as there is with financial services and gaming ­– it creates its own gravity and attraction. I am not saying that there would not be some casualties but it won’t mean the end of the sector. This is not a dark cloud looming. Fantasy sports gambling becomes major issue.
