What do your favorite digital marketers resolve to do in 2016?
“Be the change I want to see in the social media world by advocating positivity, productivity, mindfulness and balanced best practices in business.”
“Next year in terms of work, I’m going to focus more time and energy on learning mobile apps, online video, and Facebook/Instagram ads.”
“I do believe folks “can’t be what they can’t see” so I intend to be a more visible role model for local young women in STEM.”
“Understanding their (millennials’) different values and online fluency was very helpful to designing many of our conversion rate optimization initiatives.”
“If public speaking is something that you too, are looking to improve upon, I highly recommend attending a meeting (of Toastmasters International) in your area. ”

Ever wonder what’s inside the search engines’ black box of disavowed backlink data?
Google and Bing are the only parties who can see the disavow data given to them by site owners. We, the webmaster community, can’t access this data to help us make informed decisions when vetting backlinks, researching sites, or creating our own disavow files.
Let’s change that.
Today we’re launching DisavowFiles, a free, crowdsourced tool aimed at bringing transparency to disavow data. Sign up for free at DisavowFiles.com.
