  • They’re installed on a per video basis (Yes, you have to add them to each video individually – but it’s worth it!)
  • You provide the destination URL and, depending on the Card type, customize an image, title, and call-to-action text
  • They are rendered on desktop and mobile devices…

… this is the FIRST time we’ve been able to send traffic from YouTube videos to your website on mobile.

James Clerk Maxwell is one of our greatest scientists and without him we may not have x-rays, radio or colour photography. But while scientists Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton are household names, Maxwell is barely known to the general public.

- The Moz Blog
The industry's top wizards, doctors, and other experts offer their best advice, research, how-tos, and insights—all in the name of helping you level-up your SEO and online marketing skills.

  - By Ryan Crockett, 14 January 2016
If you’re nonprofit organization or young startup on a shoestring budget, SEO and social media marketing are necessities for broadcasting your message or value proposition to the digital community. Few other advertising channels offer as much bang for your buck, and your goal right now should be cost-effective tactics.

Job hunting in the ever-evolving SEO industry is a unique challenge. SEO is one of the few industries in which years of experience means far less than your ability to stay ahead of the curve, adapt to changes and algorithm updates before they arrive, and always put quality content and organic link building strategies above shady SEO tactics.

http://blog.taboola.com/ Seven years before Taboola started, we were just a bunch of geeks in the Israeli army, passionate about the unique problems that can be solved with advanced mathematics. In the early days, Adam Singolda, our Founder & CEO, became passionate about the discovery problem as he realized that people don’t really wake up in the morning thinking about new videos or articles they would like to consume that day. Search could never solve that problem: how can someone search for something they don’t even know exists?
