Should I use Angular.Js for my site? Would it harm my SEO?

in SEO

The short answer, if you are after that, it is no you shouldn’t, yes it will create more trouble than benefits … especially if you are going for the 1.0 route. That said, if you have more time, let me guide you through my rationale. With an almost steady growth, Angular has been implemented on over 450K sites out of the 1m analysed by BuildWith Trend, with top three verticals being Business, Shopping and Technology. An interesting percentage, but when compared to the worldwide implementation (over 370m), the above translates in just a 0.1% adoption. Therefore, it is a legitimate understanding as to why the framework hasn’t taken off. In my opinion, this is due to some factors out of which implementation costs, maintenance and marketing (SEO) benefits should stand up. AngularJS has many positive aspects, but like every technology, this doesn’t mean it can be adopted everywhere. Think to Plutonium: initially used for warfare, but sooner […]

Early versions of Google Panda had in fact produced some sharp changes, with many sites disappearing in just one night and certainly not without false positives. Back in time, those sites hit by the Panda update that worked hard were able to get back into the good graces of the algorithm, appreciating a slow recovery (and vice versa), with SEOers quite often moaning […]

2 lessons I learnt during my past 6 months as a growth hacker

in Internet

TL;DR1; You can grow fast only if you are in full control of the users’ life cycle. TL;DR2; Growth hacking a business requires creativity … and everything should be tested Growth hacking works fine with SAAS business but… In order to get results, your SAAS product should liaise directly with the final users. If your business makes a profit only if your customers generates money and acquire new users, things become inevitably complicated. Not being able to influence what your customer’s decisions are, you will probably end up in a 10/90 scenario, where 10 is the only part of customers that will understand what you have to say. During my experience, I tried to establish a quick connection with some of the customers explaining ideas, strategies and everything it would have been good to test for improving their online business and moving the numbers. Useless to say this proved to be a time-consuming exercise that brought very […]
