Google Says The Holiday Season Has Started
I typically mark the holiday season by the first holiday commercial I see on TV. That is a bad metric for e-commerce merchants which live and die from online traffic – much of which comes from search engines.
Better to listen to when Google says “it’s the holiday” and they just piped those words. In my most recent post on www.PracticalEcommerce.com I go over Google’s Insight report showing that the term “Christmas Gift” just spiked in search volume. Here is the post and please comment on the Practical E-commerce blog or here.
This also seems to reiterate my prior post about holiday import timing and when to start marketing and taking back-orders. That post is here.
With retail in the doghouse, here is a YouTube of dogs barking Jingle Bells put up by somebody with a lot of free time on their hands. Lets have a great holiday season everybody and please consider using Shipwire for your holiday product order fulfillment.
