Giraffe image for Orthopreneur blog postLet’s keep it fast and simple. Read the following “quick-hitters” and hopefully we will have you saying, “Ah, I see” or “I didn’t know that!” Here are ten things — not a Top 10 — just ten things about Internet marketing that you may or may not know when marketing your orthodontic practice.

  • Google+ is an “all-in-one” social network that combines elements of Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Instagram, foursquare, LinkedIn, and others
  • Bing and Yahoo have recently rolled out new Places for Business platforms – just like Google
  • Yahoo gets a lot of their search results from Bing – meaning the two search engines often have extremely similar search results
  • Google Penguin is an ongoing update to Google’s algorithm that checks for and penalizes poor-quality links going to and from a website
  • Vine is a new app for phones and tablets where users upload and share videos that are six seconds or less (same concept as Twitter but with videos)
  • In order to leave a review for a business on Google, the reviewer must sign into a Google+ profile (or create one and join the Google+ social network)
  • A giraffe can lick its own ears (that has nothing to do with Internet marketing, but picture a giraffe licking its own ears…funny, right?)
  • Google Panda was originally an update (and is now part of Google’s core algorithm) that checks for and penalizes sites with content that is thin or spammy
  • Google+ has over 343 million active users – is your business optimized for Google Plus?
