  1. I have looked at both of these too. This is my take on it. Geru is probably fine if you are someone that needs to sit down and plan every step of a sales funnel out. Everyone probably should do that. You can do the same thing in a flow chart. It would lack all the fancy bells and whistles, but is more than adequate. However, if you are using it as a sales tool to clients, the output of something like Geru will look more impressive. That being said, Funnelytics looks much more interesting to me. I have not tried it yet, but if it can really integrate well with a website and outside tools you might be using like an autoresponder, the fact that it tracks stats in real time makes it look like a much more useful tool. I have not found any of the reviewers out there discussing its accuracy so far. The fact that they have an affiliate program severely muddies the waters when looking at reviews. I have not yet found one that shows a real live funnel that they have been running for a few months. It's all people just setting up new ones telling me how easy it is. If it works as advertised, it could be great for identifying weak points in a business.
  2. I'm all for the lawsuits. Hold them accountable. It's one thing when a reporter gets something wrong. Maybe bad info. Maybe a source lied or misled them. It is a whole different thing when reporters (or fake reporters who are nothing more than TV personalities) intentionally lie about something in an attempt to politicize a health crisis and further their own political interests. In this case, it's hard not to say that it backfired on them, but that is not a strong enough penalty.
  3. It feels like a club in here. Now someone buy me a drink!
  4. I saw a news report that internally Fox News is worried they may face a class action lawsuit in the future for the way they downplayed and misled the public about the coronavirus. It would be nice to see them held accountable. If it happens, I would like to see the lawsuit go one step further and individually target people like Hannity.
  5. I sat in on a call with a friend a few weeks ago where a Yelp sales person called her about advertising her business on their site. I was pretty amazed at the lies they were telling her to try to get the sale. They were spitting out stuff about how advertising with them would boost their rankings in Google. The guy even said that Yelp works directly with Google. I should wrote down all the lies the guy was spitting out and recorded the call.
  6. I really have not seen the emphasis on credibility outside of medical related sites that people claim is out there, and even the medical ones it doesn't seem as big of a deal as people claim. Some of these sites got hit hard, but then over the next few months Google seemed to dial things back closer to where they were. If you search through the SERPs, you still find plenty of sites with content written by people without evidence of their authority on the topic. A lot of what happened was people saw Google's E-A-T guidelines in their search quality guidelines and assumed that it was now part of the algorithm. The search quality guidelines are for their human quality raters. It does not mean it is a part of the algorithm and never has. TL;DR It's a lot more business as usual in these niches than people are talking about. Just take some time to inspect the SERPs and you will see this is largely the case.
  7. Perhaps surprisingly I have not seen many of the people who had snippets and were impacted by this bellyaching. I think that shows that most of the clicks were going to snippets versus their traditional listing. That is something we really had no way of testing before.
  8. The way it looked at the end of last season I believe that will no longer be the case. It looks like she will no longer be serving two masters. I would also argue that poor writing choices do not have anything to do with her performance.
  9. It's more or less like the 75 emails I get from Amazon every week asking me to leave reviews for stuff I ordered.
  10. No love for Maggie Siff from Billions?
  11. This sounds like a lot of "I found what I wanted to find" versus any kind of concrete evidence. If you want to prove that longer content ranks better, you would need to setup multiple domains with pages targeting the same keywords and put content of different lengths on them. Obviously, you are introducing tons of other variables when you do that, so you would have to do it a few thousand times to have any kind of reliable "evidence".
  12. I can't say I love the new layout. Seemed fine on mobile, but on desktop it feels less inviting for some reason to me. I'm mostly curious what impact it is going to have on ads.
  13. I still prefer Screaming Frog. To me it's a tool a lot like Scrapebox. When Scrapebox was popular, a lot of people were turned off by its interface. It was very basic and simple. That's how Screaming Frog appears too. Definitely designed by engineers. Tried Sitebulb. It's not bad. I did like the site structure visualization option, but like you said, once you get to bigger sites that feature quickly becomes pretty useless. Then Screaming Frog introduced the same feature, so I had no reason to even consider switching. I guess if you do a lot of site audits, Sitebulb might be of interest. They can export some decent looking reports, but unless they have changed it recently, you do not have much control over what gets into those reports. Some of the things that Sitebulb reports as an issues, I don't agree with, so that would get confusing to hand to a client.
  14. I know a lot of IM'ers use Mailchimp. They just recently changed their pricing and fee structures. Take note, this was written by someone who runs a competitor's product. Nevertheless, it does a good job outlining the changes. Also worth noting, these changes only impact free accounts and new paying subscribers. If you currently have a paid account with Mailchimp, this does not impact you, but I would not be surprised if this eventually rolls out to everyone. If you are on a free account and on the verge of hitting the point where you will have to pay, you are going to be put into the new pricing structure. A few notes: In this new plan, you will now be paying for everyone, including people who have unsubscribed from your lists. They took away the ability to send unlimited emails on paid accounts. Mailchimp, like the old days of limited data and text plans on smartphones, is introducing overage charges. If your subscriber number hits the next tier level, instead of just upgrading you to the next plan, you will be upgraded AND charged an overage fee. Users will need to stay on top of their list counts as they approach the next pricing tier. Lastly, they are gating a lot of their features in the different plan tiers. Previously, almost every feature was open to users at every tier, including free users. I had moved from Aweber to Constant Contact to Mailchimp. Might be time to look for a new service. I have always hated their clunky ass interface anyhow.
