Bit.ly – the funny little abbreviation you probably see all over the place, especially in Tweets. You may already know that it is the de facto URL shortening software (80million of them are shared every day), but there are loads of other benefits, some of which I will go through in this blog.
Alexa.com is a great site which shows the rankings of websites around the world.
It’s worth keeping up to date on which ones are at the top, especially if your strategy part relies on the rankings of sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter etc… You may even want to know how yours ranks?
Have you ever performed what I call a Google Trawl? We recently project managed a client’s new website, and the first thing I asked them to do was a Google trawl. Bear in mind, what Google says about you is highly influential – it will influence surfers, and impact upon your bottom line.
Sorry to be a smart phone bore (40% of the UK population have them tho!), but I have another tip for working on the fly: Analytics Lite. I am a MASSIVE fan of free apps (I just hate paying for tech…) and this app really helps me keep an eye on my web traffic.
You have a website. You are a good boy/girl and keep it up to date (crucial in today’s web-savvy world). You may even have a team of users who update it / review it regularly… did you know that your own traffic to the site will skew your stats?
Well, the Apply With LinkedIn button has finally gone live… what’s going to be the impact? If you are a recruiter (agency or corporate), how will this affect you? How will it improve your business process and bottom line? Does this mark the end of the CV?
