Enhanced Version of Reality: Augmented Reality

After the successful application of Virtual Reality (VR) experiences in video games and computer graphics, I mean everyone has played Pong right! Engineers have now come up with an altogether out of the traditional sense of real and virtual; Augmented Reality (AR). It basically enhances the real or we could say entirely blurs the line between what is real and what is computer generated, by elevating our basic sense of sight, smell, touch and hearing. Augmented Reality (AR) operates on the basis of what is real and hence is closer to reality than Virtual Reality (VR). It’s literally changing the way we see the world.

It super imposes graphics, audios and other senses, enhancing them over a real world environment. Next generation Augmented Reality (AR) devices will display graphics for unit users’ viewing and perspective.

From social media filters to medical processes, Augmented Reality (AR) is growing everywhere. It overlays information on your already existing real natural world. One the most widely used application of Augmented Reality (AR) is called the GPS (Global Positioning System), used for mapping directions and finding locations. Today, it’s commonly used by people in everyday life.

World’s one of the best technology providers, Apple is also taking steps towards  Augmented Reality (AR), within their cell-phone devices, which would most definitely increase the popularity of Augmented Reality (AR) and help it to grow at a faster pace. Both their devices iPhone 8 and iPhone X would have a new chip that would allow them to give users with extraordinary Augmented Reality (AR) experience.

Also, Snapchat and Instagram would soon introduce filters which would allow users to take selfies with a friend or let’s say even Tom Cruise via projected Augmented Reality (AR). So it’s like real cool stuff for the Gen-Zers. So all tech-savvy should be ready to witness the best exposure to “real” in the upcoming year.

New Year Hopes For New Trends in Digital Marketing

New Year asks for new trends in every arena and so the forum of digital marketing deems to have some highlighted achievements to gain in the year 2018. Internet being the ground breaker for the marketing industry would definitely like some new spices in the mix for the upcoming year. To blotch them down one by one, we should begin with something very much talked about recently; artificial intelligence.

On the basis of a prediction made by Adobe, marketing strategies can be now developed by machines. They would make an analysis of data to build parts, begin and end campaigns across different channels and could also develop customised copies targeting perceived personalities. What could be more appeasing to the customers than witnessing something based on their own behaviour; customer actions could describe what they desire. Using Intercom and Drift, marketing agents can communicate directly with buyers. AI Live Chat would definitely be more appreciated by website visitors.

Content Marketing is another trend taking over the industry. A larger populace believes more what they read rather than what they see in advertisements. It’s also one of the cheaper marketing forums. It also provides marketers with ‘n’ number of platforms such as blogs, articles, videos and infographics.

There is also an outpouring of advertisements on T.V. but it no more is the T.V. our parents were familiar with. With Gen Y and Z under the influence of online channels such as You Tube, Netflix, Amazon Prime, T.V. has made a shift to the digital world. This trend seems to be gaining strength today. So, opting for You Tube ads seems to be the smarter choice in marketing rather going for the flatrons.

Social media being one of the larger platforms of online marketing would definitely witness some new set-ups as well.

With a limited character count, Twitter is unable to improve its user-base. It’s also focused primarily on its user acquisition for the past year than on improving its ads platforms. Yet on the other side, much improvements have been made by LinkedIn and it has presented a new user interface. Hence, providing a new attraction to the users in the New Year.

Is your website affected by the latest Google Penguin 4.0 update?

Is your website affected by the latest Google Penguin 4.0 update?What is new in latest update? There are two important points to take from this latest update.

1-  According to Google, Penguin goes real-time. The latest update incorporates the Penguin update in core algorithm of Google, which means there is no more Penguin update in future. Now penguin update will be refreshed in real-time once your website is crawled or re-indexed again.

How do you know which page of your website is affected by the Penguin?

Preparing for Google Penguin 4.0 “real-time” update:

The practice of proactive link audits and disavows gets, even more, important for your business – and we always recommended to do it on a weekly basis. Maybe faster in the future.

  • A link can help or hurt - positive to negative effect.
  • You need to analyze your FULL backlink profile – it’s about ratios.
  • Use a machete, not a scalpel for bad links – I know that it’s tough to let a so-so link go, but remember it’s about ratios
  • Disavow shady scraper links – Google has better things to do than detect all sorts of scraper spam, so they put it on us
  • Be careful with redirects – as we found out in Penguin 2.0 update Google passes penalties on with redirects for a while now
  • Be careful with redirects 2.0 – temporary redirects are handled differently than just a few years ago and can convert into permanent redirects. Did you know?
  • Content relevance.

The aim of Google updates is to provide the best user experience to the search engine users (Relevant results):

  • Providing relevant, useful and engaging content
  • Providing the best user experience
  • Providing the best speed in your site
  • Building a website that your audience trusts
