theEweekly Wrap – this week at theEword

SEO on video This week saw the release of theEword video channel on YouTube. The inaugural clips saw online marketing manager Mark Baker and managing editor Dan Nolan introduce themselves to the two billion users who visit YouTube daily.

Speaking to theEweekly Wrap, Dan Nolan said:

“It really was a great experience. I’m keen to emphasise the importance of content in an overall SEO strategy and these video blogs are a great way to get the message out there.

“These video blogs give us the opportunity to reveal the team members responsible for SEO strategy at theEword; it lets prospective clients discover who is working on the campaigns.”

Look out for more video blogs from theEword in the future. We’ll have clips with the key members of the team, as well as lots of other SEO-related content.

The charity push immediately garnered attention from fellow Facebook users. Indeed, Facebook UK mentioned the campaign on their official feed on Thursday. The status read:

“Do you play bingo? Bucky Bingo in Manchester has pledged to donate £1 to Breakthrough Breast Cancer for every new Facebook fan that likes its Page. Help smash the £5000 target and try your luck at some of the games!”
