Facebook Wants to Bring Links Inside Apps – Digits – WSJ

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that the company is banking its global user base of 1.3 billion people to push its standard to the top of the list. “We can help push that along and establish a standard and that’s what we’re trying to do,” he said.

Zuckerberg said Facebook’s strategy isn’t necessarily at odds with Google’s. “Facebook and Google are coming at it from different perspectives,” he said. Facebook’s goal is to “enable people to share content from different apps,” he said, while Google “is more about searching in apps.” He suggested that the mobile world may evolve so that “apps just mark up their views with all of these different kinds of things.”

One hurdle for mobile app links, Zuckerberg said, is convincing app developers to do the extra work to create them. Web links are basically automatic, whereas app links take an extra step. “The unfortunate situation right now though is that on desktop web or web in general, everything automatically has a URL,” he said. “But in mobile, it’s the opposite.”

Zuckerberg said getting developers to create the URLs will mean showing them there’s real value in doing the extra work. If app developers want to appear in searches, they might use Google’s standard. If developers want to attract Facebook’s billion users with links sending them directly to specific places within their app – like a song on Spotify – they might use App Links, he said.

“Those kinds of killer use cases I think are the thing that’s going to drive the adoption of this, but I think it’ll be a few years before

The Mobile App Bandwagon: Small Business Savior or Gimmick? | Innovation Insights | WIRED

Got SEO Basics? 5 Tips To Boost Your Organic CTR

1. Search Engine Results Page (SERP) Ranking

Marketers everywhere are chasing after Page 1 organic rankings, but is there much of a difference between Position 1 and Position 6? Or Position 2 and Position 7? The short answer is “yes”!

Studies conducted by Nielsen Norman Group report that web users view the screen in an F-shaped pattern, and spend 80% of their time looking at information above the fold (the portion of the screen viewable without scrolling — usually rankings 1-5).

Based on these data, one could infer that rankings above the fold are seen first and more often — and that users may be more likely to click on these listings simply because of their navigation behavior.

Moreover, data from a 2013 Google CTR Study by Catalyst indicates that on average, 83% of Page 1 organic clicks go to the first four organic rankings.

Clearly, while ranking on the first page is great for achieving brand visibility, you need to get your website to rank above the fold to begin seeing substantial traffic gains.

Performance Tips:

Strive to achieve organic rankings closer to the top of the search result pages (above the fold), as these positions can drive higher CTRs.
Focus your e-commerce organic strategy on developing informational based content. SERP listings for informational search queries above the fold are less cluttered and will have a better chance of attracting the user’s attention/click.
