New TikTok Business Creative Hub

In April, Tik-Tok introduced a new in-app resource called “Business Creative Hub” and made it available to all business account users.

This section offers guidance on how to create viral content! Its main goal is to keep creators inspired by offering them insights on trending topics as well as showing them the best practices to turn creative ideas into TikTok videos.

SEO: Google product reviews update

During the full month of April, Google rolled out an update targeting product review types of content. This update is targeted to all those websites that review any kind of products. Its main focus is to reward those who actually buy and test products before they write honest reviews.

In the SEO industry, it’s well known that some reviews websites are simply a collection of comments about a certain product found on the internet that are re-written and published again unders someone else’s name. Very few sites take the time and money to buy, test and write about the products. However, those who do will (hopefully) see an increase in their rankings and therefore in their organic traffic.

In the next few weeks, we’re expecting to see rankings change quite a lot for any kind of review-based content. If you have produced this kind of content before, keep an eye on your rankings!

Is Snapchat making a comeback?

…well, it seems like Snapchat never went anywhere!

Snapchat’s revenue went up 66% this year compared to Q1 2020 and hit 280 million daily average users!

This massive change is an effect of the pandemic and the recent changes in consumers behaviour, which allowed Snapchat to partner with huge brands like Gucci, American Eagle, Sweat and Yoplait to run Augmented Reality ads campaigns, which were a HUGE success.
