Getting Back In The Groove
I have tried to be as disconnected as possible the past few days which has now put me more than a bit behind on email and basically every other communication method I use.
We live in the same area the majority of our family lives in which means we had three places to visit on the 24th, three on the 25th, then two on the 26th. I am Christmas partied out. Which means it is time to start getting back in the normal groove, although I made promises to the kids to NOT work or be on the laptop as much this coming week since I now have more say on my own schedule than in past years. I will keep that promise to them.
As I prep to get back in the after-Christmas groove I am reviewing as much end of year data as possible on local search, online advertising, mobile search and areas related. Although most data you find this time of year is estimated only (since there is a whole week left….) I like to have an idea how the trends have looked over the year so you can find things to take advantage of going into the New Year.
Long story short, make sure you watch the trends and plan your attack for the New Year, review what has worked, what has not worked, where various trends are headed and plan your strategy accordingly.
All that said, as I get back into normal blogging this week I will show some of the interesting stats I have been finding (some not just end of year but just local search related trends in general).
Continue to have a great Holiday!
