The fact is that this email is unnecessary or is it? Perhaps it’s an opportunity to win back a previous subscriber – here are 5 awesome unsubscribed emails.

[SEO] It’s no surprise that local SEO is becoming more and more important in the world of search. If you’ve got a company that services people in a specific area then you’ll be interested in the 2015 local search ranking factors that were recently published.

[SEO] Did you know that Google’s Search is the 4th most popular app and is growing faster than Facebook? comScore published a study on this and it’s worth looking at because it shows just how important search is.

[Hacked Website] Google announced that during 2015 they’ve seen an increase of 180% in website’s that are being hacked. Because of this they’re putting some new measures in place that will assist website owners with knowing when someone has gone wrong and how to resolve it.

We wish you all a wonderful weekend and for those who are traveling, please be careful on the roads!
