30 Search & Social Posts From June That You Should Read

July 2, 2012

   
June has been a busy month for the team at Apex Internet - a lot of good stuff in the pipelines. While not keeping busy with client work, we have been looking at a more holistic approach to the way we do search and currently in the process of rolling out some brand spanking new services. In addition to that we are working on the biggest update yet to our search engine friendly CMS; Orbit. Another one we are pretty excited about.

Oh - we are looking for another search marketer too if you know one?

We weren't the only ones who have been busy - there was some pretty epic content published around the web in June, including what I feel was the best SEO article published in 2012 so far.

So without further ado (and in no particular order) here are 30 of the best Search and Social posts I came across last month. All worth a read I reckon.

Enjoy.

(P.S - if you only read a single post on this list, make it this one.)
