Today, on the Analytics blog, Google announced the launch of their new “Google Tag Manager” product. What does the tag manager do? Google says that Tag Manager was created to provide marketers with the ability to add tags (tracking codes, etc.) to their websites without having to bother IT people. Essentially it’s a “cut out the middleman” tool for marketers, allowing them to add, remove and change tags on their own. But are there any risks?

Basically the more links out there that point to your website from websites that are talking about similar topics, especially authority websites that have other sites linking to them, the better. While inbound links have essentially always factored in to web rankings, it’s only been in recent years that most webmasters and business owners have taken notice. Just a decade ago there were a lot of businesses that didn’t even have an online presence, much less a website they needed to rank on the first page of Google’s search results for important searches related to their product offerings.

Eventually the old version link disappeared and we were all forced to learn the new tool. It’s never been great in my opinion, but it’s been adequate. Then today I noticed the helpful folks at Google Adwords are testing a new (optional) feature in the keyword tool – “Ad Group Ideas (Beta)”.
