Breaking News: Instant Articles to take the world by storm

Yesterday, Facebook announced, in its annual conference, F8, the release of Instant Articles and the access to all publishers, across the world. Until today, this feature was only available to a few top companies of the world market. So, what exactly are these Instant Articles?

Speed Does Matter

 

Instant Articles is Facebook’s newest innovation, which offers never-before experienced navigation speed and interaction to the user. You have most probably come across an article like this, at some point, where there’s one small symbol on the top right, like a small lightning.

 Instant Articles iTrust image

 

If you also took the next step and opened one of these articles, you definitely know what’s all this about. Joyful, easy navigation to the article, while staying on the Facebook app, without you being redirected to the publisher’s website, one-touch sharing and more suggested articles in the bottom. Those are just some of the awesome features offered by Instant Articles.

This brand-new feature was given experimentally to top publishers and websites, with millions of readers and followers. The result to these publishers? A 20% increase in article reading and 10 times faster page loading speed.

Instant Articles is a similar version of AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) for social media. AMP, a self-proclaimed “project” by its founders, was designed by a collaboration between Google and Twitter, in the USA, and offers immediate article page loading.

Navigation speed, therefore, implies easy reading and exploration of more pages. What does this mean, exactly? More interesting, immediate and relevant ads, which publishers can offer, specifically targeted to the needs & interests of the reader. Practically, instant articles take digital age to a whole new level, where speed does matter.

How it works

Instant articles is a publishing format for mobile devices (smartphones, tablets). These articles are HTML5 documents, appropriately optimized, using a markup language, similar to XML. In other words, Facebook’s API works like a tube or channel, which receives an article’s current HTML and, passing it through its software, converts it into a lighter, faster version of the SAME document. This fact allows the styling adjustments and addition of interactive functionalities in the article. There’s also the possibility of adding specific tags, relevant to the topic, text, maps, hiqh quality images & slideshows, while at the same time, article interaction with likes, comments and shares is made easier than ever.

How-to: Use Instant Articles to your website

There’s two methods for someone to add this unique Facebook feature to its business publishing tools. Regardless of what method is chosen, though, some degree of adjustment is always necessary. As time passes and technology evolves daily, adjustment needs to become even more specialized to the needs and characteristics of the business or publisher.

Easy Way

In its recent conference, where Instant Articles was announced, Facebook also presente a specific plug-in, user-friendly for any open-source Content Management System (like WordPress, Drupal & Tempest). Its installation, therefore, is quite easy and fast to do, by downloading the plug-in and adjusting it to the Management System.

Tough Way

As a Digital Agency that’s passionate with the latest trends, iTrust started designing & “writing” its own plug-in, from the day Facebook announced the launching date of the Instant Articles. Our goal was to be 100% prepared for the day this feature would be launched.

Contact us for any information regarding Instant Articles, as well as if you wish to use it for your business. We would like to serve you with great pleasure.

With the digital world experiencing such a rapid progress, navigation and user-friendly content goes on a whole other level, where interactions are direct. Thinking about the advantages Instant Articles offers, it’s something every publisher has to try. Why? Simply put, if you don’t give it a shot, one of your competitors will.

 

Enterprise SEO – The Case Study of Pinterest

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) for a local business or a small medium enterprise in most markets comes down to the expertise of the SEO expert. Bust mostly its a matter or effort: If you know what you’re doing, and actually throw the needed resources on it, the results will come.

 

But even when the desired Google Search positions become a reality and the juicy organic traffic starts flowing in, the actual success only comes when SEO stops functioning as an independent series of tasks, but becomes integrated with the rest of marketing and operations as a whole. SEO can make wonders for modern businesses given they are given a seat at the decision-makers table.

 

SEOs are disruptors by definition. If they don’t operate proactively it’s probably too late already.

 

Enterprise SEO – That’s another beast

 

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) for enterprises is a huge growth opportunity. And as times and times again, SEO is back in fashion. Perhaps because it is being gradually demystified, given Google’s relative consistency on communicating the importance of unique and quality content.

 

But when the websites becomes “larger:, the functionalities more complex, when new digital assets are created for subsidiaries or product lines and in so many other cases, SEO becomes a whole other beast.

 

And that is what we like to call enterprise SEO, or just BIG SEO.

 

The case study of Pinterest SEO

SEO and Social Media - Pinterest

Pinterest, women’s and shopaholics’ favourite social network, quickly realised traditional SEO 101 manuscript would not suffice to increase its organic traffic growth goals. Instead, Pinterest internally opted for running a large number of experiments to understand which tactics worked for them.

 

Duplicate Page Title tags? No problem

 

Even though having a large number of duplicate page title tags is definitely not a good practice in the eyes of Google, in Pinterest’s case that proved to not be an issue. Here’s what happened:

 

Many Pinterest users create boards with exactly the same name, resulting in identical Page Title tags in the form of:

 

“{Board Name} on Pinterest”.

 

In a SEO experiment, Pinterest added the number of pins in those boards next to their names. Resulting in a Page Title Tag:

 

{Board Name} on Pinterest | {Number of Pins}

 

Through this experiment Pinterest found there was no statistical significant change in traffic (between the test and the control group).

 

Text Descriptions? I’d like some of that

 

Pinterest did find a huge growth opportunity though via organic traffic. After experimenting with improving text descriptions Pinterest saw results much better than anticipated; invested further into it and saw a nearly 30% increase in traffic only last year.

 

Good (SEO) things gone bad

 

Maybe the most important thing decision-makers can take from Pinterest’s Growth Team engineers’ experience is that even un-related actions have to take SEO into consideration.

 

An experiment on Pinterest had the purpose of delivering a better web performance and making sure the implemented changes did not affect SEO. In fact, the changes did impact SEO negatively (!) and the team was late to turn off the experiment.

 

Still, having tested such a change (rendering with JavaScript) was a huge success “in the sense that it prevented a terrible traffic drop without a known cause. […] we learned the importance of running experiments for non-SEO projects to prove that they aren’t negatively affecting SEO”, in the words of Julie Ahn, Software Engineer on Pinterest’s Growth Team.

How’s all that affecting my website’s SEO?

Enterprise SEO is the ultimate manifestation of SEO being a very different beast depending on the project at stake.

Basic guidelines and best practices have always been there. But the SEO landscape becomes more competitive and achieving  results will always, more or less, require outside-the-box thinking and acting. Pinterest’s case study proves how complex and how different a SEO project can become.

Working as a german in Greece (SPIEGEL Online – Video)

iTrust, a Google Partner, is a results-oriented digital agency. Since 2006 we assist local and global brands drive up sales, increase awareness and expand their networks. Last week we found ourselves in the top-3 videos of Spiegel Online. This is the story of how it happened.

A little while ago we were looking for a german copywriter for our offices in Thessaloniki to cope with the clients operating in Germany.

Given the strong ties many people from Thessaloniki have with Germany and the existence of the German School of Thessaloniki, we were able to interview a number of truly great candidates.

But Florian Schmitz, copywriter, project designer, blogger, media consultant and press liaison, impressed us both with his skillset and the fact that he was a perfect culture fit with the rest of our team.

Last week, Spiegel Online was toured by Florian through Thessaloniki, trying to understand how current Greek-German relationships have evolved, how working in Greece as a German feels like and what issues capital controls have raised for firms like iTrust and its clients.

That’s a lot to cover in 5 minutes. For that, we’ll let Florian himself say his side of the story.

Why iTrust in Thessaloniki – Moving to Greece in troubled times

 

Florian: When I came to Greece about a year and a half ago, my expectations of actually finding a job were slim to nill. To be honest, I hadn’t even thought about it. And now, I am sitting here, as an official iTrust employee, surrounded by hard-working colleagues and getting paid for what I always wanted to do: creating content.

 

I moved to Greece in December 2013.  Of course I was – and still am – aware of the difficult situation the country is struggling with. Therefore, I was not surprised when both, people in Germany and people in Greece thought I was crazy. While the Germans celebrated me as some kind of risk-it-all adventurer, most Greeks I met wouldn’t believe me. “Are you nuts? Everybody is leaving! What do you think you are doing?”

 

The truth is usually somewhere in the middle

 

Well, there is some truth in both viewpoints, but, as usual, the reality and the dimensions of my decision to leave Germany arise somewhere in the middle. The life of an individual cannot be grasped from the stereotypical images the media produce of Greece – and also of Germany. My being here is the result of my personal history, a chain of coincidences and hard work. Apparently the outcome is still, well, weird. So weird that even the German magazine ‘Spiegel’ made an interview with me.

 

If people ask me about my motives, I always say that after 13 years and despite the deep connections I have with Berlin: I was sick of the city and needed a change. Unlike many people in Greece automatically assume: For a literature major, Berlin is not an easy city to deal with. A lot of competition, low pay and most of all: Berlin is done. Berlin already has it all. It does not need yet another copywriter or journalist.

 

Drastic measures, but worth it

 

Long story short: I needed to leave, expand my horizon, swim against the swarm. I owe Berlin a lot, but I somehow knew that only a drastic location change and facing challenges beyond the typical ‘which-agency-in-Berlin-can-I-identify-with-the-most’ would satisfy both, my constant urge to discover new worlds and my desire to apply all the knowledge and experiences I acquired in Berlin.

 

Now I am here, 18 months later. Still fighting with the Greek language (they have about twenty thousand varieties of the vowel ‘e’ – drives me f#!§ing nuts!), but getting settled. Apart from being among the few privileged people to have a steady job now, including health insurance, I get to work with amazing and highly qualified people. I encounter a professional, warm-hearted and open work environment. And I learn new things.

 

iTrust – Learning and evolving

 

We work with international clients and global brands that do business abroad. We don’t care too much about the fact that many people have given up upon Greece. We work hard, maybe harder than in other in places of Europe right now. We develop digital marketing strategies, we generate or pin-point international audiences and we are successful. Because of our know-how, our customers make more money. And because of that, we ALL develop and grow.

 

As hard as the situation might be, to me iTrust is an example of the fact that, even under the most difficult circumstances, a good idea can always strive. It needs knowledge, people who believe in it, patience, a strong will and the right team in the right place. I found my team in Thessaloniki and as a German I feel glad and honored to be part of an undertaking that so harshly contrasts the medial depiction of Greece. And – last but not least – I feel welcome and needed as German in Greece, despite all the conflicts these two countries are currently facing.
