Shot 1: Inbound Thought of the Week

The Search Opportunity


#13: What percent of clicks on Google search results go to Google Shopping results?

The Google Shopping ads have become pretty compelling — the visuals are solid, the advertisers are clearly spending lots of effort on CTR optimization, and the results, not surprisingly, reflect this.

MozCast has Shopping results in 9% of queries, while clickstream data shows those results earning 0.55% of all search clicks.

Bonus: Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) is here for blog posts!

This helps speed-up your blog posts for mobile visitors and make them more discoverable in Google search. Speed matters and with AMP in HubSpot, blog post content will load nearly instantaneously for mobile visitors keeping them engaged.

Shot 5: Opinion of the Week

The invisible fence

There are very few fences that can stop a determined person (or dog, for that matter).

Most of the time, the fence is merely a visual reminder that we're rewarded for complying.

If you care enough, ignore the fence. It's mostly in your head.
