The sheer fact that a pictorial representation stays in ones memory for a long time, makes Infographic a hotshot in Link Building. How many of us still remember the pictures given in our kindergarten books as compared with the long theoretical explanations in the later grades? If a picture is worth a thousand words, than an Infographic is worth more than that. How it combines complex data to form graphical representations which demands immediate attention and helps in the understanding of an [...]
Brainstorming for content can be really difficult at times especially, when your job requires you to write about various niches at a short notice. Though there are many tools like discussion forums, content curation sites, social media platforms, social bookmarking sites, etc. that can help to overcome this problem.

* "Content is king" is one of the widest spread Internet memes. Whether you agree or not you will see the phrase referenced all over the place. For several years Google was one of the most ardent supporters of the "content is king" philosophy. Why does Google want you to "create great content" and lots of it? In order to explain why I wanted to track the first mention of "content is king" just to find out that Bill Gates said in January of 1996. Also Sumner Redstone of Viacom said it before [...]
