Tesco is the UK’s least favourite grocer, a new survey has found.

In the latest blow to the troubled supermarket, Tesco ranked at the bottom of a list of eight grocery chains that included, in ascending order, the Co-operative, Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Aldi, Marks and Spencer and Waitrose in the top spot.

The consumer insights firm Market Force Information asked 6,800 British shoppers about their purchasing habits and compiled a loyalty score for each supermarket brand based on customers’ satisfaction and their likelihood to refer that store to others.

adconnection - the latest campaign for Maplin across TV and digital

Taking advantage of latest changes in viewing habits, adconnection has planned a fully integrated, cross-channel campaign that moves Maplin to all aspects of TV, AV and digital. In addition, through the use of extremely granular targeting of Maplin’s niche target audiences adconnection can massively reduce wastage even across multiple channels.
Alongside a first night TV roadblock and high profile spots within key ad breaks, this year’s campaign is going one step further to incorporate a number of ground-breaking video and digital formats.
The campaign will run on TV catch-up sites such as All4 (previously 4OD) and Demand 5, Sky adsmart to target relevant audiences with a frequency cap, as well as on other online video platforms. This will include in content video ads and interactive pre roll ads in which viewers will have the opportunity to select one of three Maplin ads to watch.
Henry Swift, Head of Marketing at Maplin, had this to say of the campaign: ‘With consumers increasingly watching TV & video content across a range of devices it was important to build a campaign which reflected this. By moving from a TV led to a fully Audio Visual strategy means we can tell the Maplin ‘story’ in a variety of ways and tailor content to a relevant audience’.
Dan Grossman, Account Director at adconnection “We’re looking forward to building on our successes with Maplin from last year’s TV campaigns. Key to our strategy for this year is implementing a fully integrated multi-channel campaign to amplify the effect of our TV spots. Harnessing new media technology and video formats, along with harmonised social media, gives us the opportunity to reach our audience across multiple devices in a highly targeted and efficient way”.
TV advertising, supported by a full suite of harmonised digital activity, will launch on May 3rd.

Need to know news - Google's algorithm change : adconnection


As of tomorrow, 21st April, Google will be rolling out a significant mobile-friendly ranking algorithm, expected to be complete within a week.

The algorithm, which has been referred to as ‘mobilegeddon' amongst webmasters and SEOs, is predicted to have a major impact on mobile search results.

How will it work?

This algorithm will label sites as being mobile-friendly and use this information to determine where a site should rank in the search results.

Statements from Google indicate that it will be an on or off algorithm, this means that websites will simply be labelled as being mobile friendly or not.

It will be run on a page-by-page basis. If a site is 12 pages with 6 pages that are mobile friendly and six that are not, only pages that are mobile-friendly will benefit.

Where mobile usability is a particular concern or if you are looking for advice on how to test the algorithms for your site, adconnection's digital team can put together a report on potential mobile-usability issues. We can also outline what can be done to fix these issues by accessing the site's Google Webmaster Tools account.


From a media perspective, the benefits of mobile advertising on a mobile-friendly site or app are clear. Ad viewability will surge as mobile-friendly companies climb the search rankings and those companies without a good mobile site will suffer.

The rise of mobile and mobile advertising has placed increasing pressure on brands to make their sites more mobile-friendly. Google's new algorithm will encourage those brands yet to crack mobile to now make it a priority or else see their search rankings deplete in the face of their mobile-savvy competitors.

For more information on the above, and to ensure your site is mobile-friendly and Google optimised for SEO and PPC, contact our Digital Performance Manager, Dan Harrington.
