Links You Need – December

LinksYouNeedEvery month, we’ll be scouring the web to bring you articles on all things blogging! Watch this space as we highlight new developments and share old tips that are always worthy of repeating.


  • Have you started making travel plans for 2014? Are any of your plans geared towards “conspicuous leisure” or “multigenerational travel”? If so, then you are right on trend.


  • Just in case you haven’t heard the word “niche” enough to make your head spin, here’s one more article about it, pointing to niche marketing as one of the big travel marketing trends for 2014.


  • Has anyone else been noticing the Facebugs on Facebook lately? As usual, changes abound, but this particular one is good news for those looking to gain more blog traffic from Facebook.


  • We’ve heard many bloggers who were adversely hit by the Google Hummingbird update. If you’re one of them, it’s high-time to focus on diversifying your traffic sources. This post hits on some common strategies and offers a couple of new ones.
