#MarketingTitbits – Google Translate, Twitter, SEO

googletranslate-twitter-seo-smaller1. Report: Google app will soon let you translate voice to text in real time

Google Translate has helped many of us over the years to overcome the language barrier, but now Google are taking their electronic dictionary to new heights with the introduction of real-time voice translation. Although the app offers voice-to-text translation at present, the update will allow it to automatically recognise a language and then translate it to the language you desire.

It’s not yet apparent when the new update will be released and with 90 languages to work on, it’s no wonder the project started way back now, in July 2013.

2. Prince William and Kate now have an official Twitter account

The day has finally come! Kensington Palace, which is home to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, has created its own Twitter account, gaining over 130K followers in just over a week. Much to the disappointment of many around the world, there are no plans yet for the royals to be tweeting personally.

Instead, the Twitter account will provide updates on engagements, following in the steps of Clarence House and The British Monarchy, who both have Twitter accounts officially dedicated to the Royals.

3. How social and mobile work with SEO

Marketing generally works best when it is integrated. Different channels interact and build on the work each other does, combining to deliver an enhanced ROI. With this in mind, consider how can social media and mobile marketing work together to lead to improved SEO rankings?

One of the keys to making this work is to optimise the posts and content you are putting out through your social media channels – think keywords and location. The new Google Pigeon update, which focuses on geographic location when generating mobile-based search results, delivers the most relevant local businesses for the searcher. Google will reward sites that are mobile-optimised, so maybe it’s time to get working on that responsive-designed site.
