There is a constant slew of articles, Blog posts, tweets and conversations (online and offline) about how to define success in Social Media. In the past few weeks I've come to one conclusion: you can't measure success if you're unsure of the quality of what the initial input is. What does that mean? You can't be looking at the end result and ask if something was successful in Social Media. What does this look like? People are smart.

With the search landscape shifting, many SEO firms and digital marketing agencies scrambled to distance themselves from strategies that would result in a client’s website being de-indexed or penalized.
