A free browser plugin can give you a lot of help in your SEO campaign
The Ghostery plugin (available for most browsers) is built to protect your privacy when visiting the web. It does this by controlling which analyitcs or ad scripts get executed in your browser.
Why would we, digital marketers, want to use this? Don’t we want to track people who visit our website- how can we then prevent ourselves from being tracked? Isn’t that hypocritical?
Here’s why I’m recommending this to you- as a marketer:
Ghostery can cause some unexpected problems, of which you should be aware. For instance, do you know why companies offer font’s for free? They’re using it to track visitors to that website (I guess you should have read the fine print). There are many things like this about which you might not be aware. If a website appears to be “broken” check to see if Ghostery is “causing” the problem by preventing something from executing on the website. In addition, some bank websites might not work (especially after you login) with Ghostery enabled.
SEO seems hard- you have to keep up with all the changes and weed through contradictory advice. This is frustrating and overwhelming. Curious Ants will teach you SEO while bringing your website more traffic and customers- because you’ll learn SEO while doing it.
