SeeWhy recently quoted a Forrester report on the top five causes of shopping cart abandonment. These included too-expensive shipping and handling; not being ready to purchase the product; a desire to compare prices on other sites; the product’s price being higher than the shopper was willing to pay; and a desire to save products in the cart for later consideration. While you may not be able to address all of these issues, you can address many of them (and others) with proper shopping cart design and layout. Monetate posted an awesome shopping cart abandonment infographic that Search Engine Lan…

It’s that time of the year again. There are code freezes just around the corner for most online retailers and those big brands that aren’t focused on hitting holiday sales goals are getting their 2012 search engine marketing budgets al…
For me, celebrating the holidays is about spending time with family and friends. Along with sharing delicious meals and building snowmen in the backyard, getting into the season often means traveling to places both familiar and new, whether going to visit family or walking down the Champs-Élysées to see the holiday lights.
We’re sure many of you have holiday plans in the works, so we’ve designed greeting cards you can email to friends and family—to share those fun adventures or just to say hello from wherever you are around the world. In addition to choosing from 10 holiday covers and adding a personal message, you can include specific directions, a Street View image or a favorite place on the inside of the card.
Since I grew up in New England, the holidays always make me think of skiing. So I’ll send some of my friends cards with inspiring ski scenes in Street View, or directions to Squaw Valley for an upcoming ski trip.
Around this time of year, I also get nostalgic about specific places where great holiday memories were made, so the card I’ll send to my family will remind them of the amazing breakfasts we had at Lou’s during past holiday seasons. And the card to my friends in New York will suggest a restaurant we should try when I visit them in a couple of weeks.
And of course, to share some winter weather with my friends in California, I’ll send a card with some wintry scenes of Antarctica and Whistler, and snowy greetings on the cover.
We hope these online cards help you stay connected and share holiday cheer with your loved ones, whether you send directions to a holiday party, winter imagery from Street View or the various places that signify the spirit of the season to you. Start sending at googlemapsholidays.appspot.com. Happy holidays!
From the ReveNews family to yours this Holiday Season, we wish you good tidings and cheer! It is in the spirit of the season that we decided to share a clip from a staff favorite from the classic The Twilight Zone series called “Night of the Meek” which first aired in 1960.
