In my experience though, the best boost our AdWords campaign ever got was the placement of the Google Checkout badge beneath our ads.
A lively discussion this morning inspired today’s blog post. The discussion was about Internet video content being displayed on the home television and what that means as far as ease of use and content to the viewer. Now it is worth mentioning that there are many devices such as slingbox, xbox 360, etc. which allow you to stream video from a pc to your TV. But what I’m more interested in the devices which easily allow you to view Internet content on your TV without needing a PC back-end. And as it turns out, devices like that are fairly new to the market.
