50 Viral Images The Web Shared In 2010
As a perpetual observer/analyzer of what people share and why, it’s fascinating to me to study content that spreads. As such, I document/bookmark much of the web’s hottest content for my own insight/analysis, but I also share with readers here too. Images have always been one of the most popular types of content on the web, (even through the popularization of video) and I’m always surprised more marketing and PR folk don’t actively use them as part of their content mixes.

10 reasons your Wi-Fi speed stinks (and what you can do about it)
May 09, 2012, 4:44 PM — The first 801.11ac chipsets are coming soon, but 802.11n is likely to stick around for many years to come -- both in the business world and our homes.

Understanding the Importance of Landing and Sales Pages
Relevance is the most important factor when you are advertising on the Internet. The more relevant the keywords are to your ad text and your product or service, the more likely the ads will be to get clicked on by users who are actively searching for you and your business.

But the biggest downfall of any Adwords or advertising campaign in general is when users land on poor quality or irrelevant landing pages. Spending money on Adwords and other advertising campaigns without having a proper landing page is like throwing money down the drain. Landing pages are one of the key components as part of your overall marketing strategy which you should strive to get right.
