  2. Algorithmic filtering and why you don’t see what everybody else sees

    A search engine is not unlike a black box; we ask it a question, it performs some magic behind the scenes and then spits out an answer for us. Part of this transaction is an assumption from our part, namely that the answer will be honest. And for the most part, it is. After all, if the search engine doesn’t […]

  7. Three ways towards a good blogging habit

    Have you ever sat there wondering just where the heck to get started? Getting more and more stressed and feeling more inadequate by the minute. I know I have. There’s just something almost intimidating about writing those first posts for your business. At least, that’s how I think most of us feel when we first get started. It doesn’t matter how confident […]
