Shining a Light on iBeacon & Google Eddystone: Location-Aware Marketing Made Possible with BLE Technology
BLE technology, including Apple’s iBeacon and Google’s Eddystone — while most digital marketers have heard of it, have they harnessed it? Media Wyse CEO Casey Markee is speaking about the technology powering location-aware marketing next month at Pubcon Las Vegas.
Markee joined me for an interview on all things BLE this morning, starting off with the most important question: just what is this technology? From there, we looked at how BLE technology that makes location-aware alerts and offers possible, fits into the big picture of digital marketing, plus took a look at specific examples and case studies, and where the line between helpful and intrusive may be when it comes to beacons.

Infinite scrolling is the process of loading content when the user brings it into view, i.e. when the user scrolls or clicks. Infinite scrolling is great for:
• User experience, as it can lead users to content they might not have otherwise discovered
• Time on page, as users theoretically read longer
• Reducing above-the-fold content load time
However, infinite scroll carries risk for content indexing and ranking, and may even decrease user interaction on the site.
Read on to discover what infinite scrolling is, the potential SEO hazard it poses, the problems Etsy encountered when it added infinite scroll, and why our recommendation is to proceed with caution.
