    June 2015 Poll Results: How important is a domain name to the success of an online business?

    Here are the poll results for June 2015. Thanks to over 3,900 people who took time to take our poll.

    Question was: How important is a domain name to the success of an online business?

    Responses:

    • Very important – 238/3993 (5.96% )
    • Somewhat important – 1845/3993 (46.21% )
    • Not important – 1910/3993 (47.83% )

    So, a majority of respondents said that a domain name is not important to the success of an online business. I generally agree with this statement, but I think there are instances when a domain name can significantly help a business. For example: Using a premium or EMD domain can bring in a considerable amount of type-in traffic. Also, having a short memorable domain name can help with repeat visitors. Read more...

    May 2015 Poll Results: Is Your Website Mobile Friendly?

    Here are the poll results for May 2015. Thanks to over 4,500 people who took time to take our poll.

    Question was: Is your website mobile-friendly?

    • Yes 254/4509, (5.63%)
    • No 2163/4509, (47.97%)
    • I’m not sure, 2092/4509 (46.40%)

    Nearly half the respondents said their website was not mobile-friendly, while another 46% were not sure if their website was mobile-friendly. This left only 6% of poll-takers who were sure their website was ready for mobile devices. I was a little surprised by these results considering the anticipation and release of Mobilegeddon update last month.

    For our January 2015 poll, here was the question: For 2015, what areas of Internet Marketing will your focus on?

    Thanks to 3,670 people who took part in our monthly poll. Here are the results:

    • Email Marketing: 739/3670 (20%)

    • Content Creation: 676/3670 (18%)
    • SEO: 205/3670 (6%)

    I found these poll results to be very interesting and unexpected. I was expecting SEO to be at the top of everyone’s list, but that was not the case. In fact, it came out at the very bottom of the list. I’m getting the sense that people are less optimistic about doing SEO in light of Google’s heavy algorithm updates in recent times. Read more...
