  • @annstanley Google Panda update and need for ‘good quality content’• In 2011, Google implemented a rolling algorithm update known as ‘Panda’, which ‘penalises’ sites that host poor quality content and/or provide a poor user experience• The effect of the Panda update was widespread and, with every update, Google becomes more sophisticated at judging the quality of content on a site
  • @annstanley Optimise for the user – not search engines• Making sure a site is optimised to provide a rich, relevant and rewarding experience for visitors is the best way to avoid Panda penalties, which means: – No duplicate content – All pages to have unique, relevant and useful content (even the 1000s of product pages on ecommerce sites!) – Good levels of interaction on site (low bounce rates, inbound links to ‘deep’ pages, social mentions etc…)

  • @annstanleyVideo campaigns in AdWords interface
  • @annstanley Analytics Conversion Attribution –top paths which include paid search
  • @annstanley Why use PPC data to determine the most effective keyphrases for SEO?• It can take 6 -12 months to see the result of your SEO activities• But you may have wasted your efforts on optimising for keyphrases with high volumes of searches but no conversions• We recommend you use PPC data as part of your SEO strategy – Narrow down your list to the keyphrases that convert – Use as many months data as possible and use “See Search Terms” to see the actual converting phrases – If you are not currently using PPC then you may want to run a PPC campaign before starting your SEO, in order to understand your keyphrase profile
  • Selecting keyphrases for SEO @annstanley using PPC conversion data Competition PPC data See search (Allintitle: Conv.

  • @annstanley Increase in organic traffic and salesJan 2011 – Dec 2012 – visits from organic (dark blue line) vs revenue (light blue line)Visits from organic 2011 (dark blue line) vs 2010 (orange line) SEO project started July 2011
  • @annstanley Importance of social• Direct sales e.g. Facebook commerce• Direct traffic e.g. Brand pages (Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter)• Community, loyalty and word of mouth (Facebook Likes, Twitter, Reddit, Digg, Delicious) and social shopping sites e.g. Kaboodle• Referrals, links and SEO benefit (Google Plus, Facebook Shares, social bookmarking)
  • @annstanleyPinterest
  • @annstanley Activities differ by device (Data from AdMob )Report can be found at http://googlemobileads.blogspot.com/
  • @annstanley Device responsive design• Same url for all devices rather than a separate mobile site or sub-domain• User detection agent (distinguishes device)• Liquid or responsive design suitable for each size device/operating system/browser• Mobile design often has a single column with most important content/features moved to the top and in some cases some content hidden
  • @annstanley Example of a low PPC conversion rate – using Funnels to solve a site-wide issue• Is the conversion rate the same for all traffic sources?• If yes, review in “funnel visualisation” and determine at what step there is a problem• Review site to fix problem on the first page of the shopping cart
  • @annstanleyExample: Britain’s Best Breaks –effect of design on web results
  • @annstanleyAnalyticsresults
  • @annstanley Summary• The online marketing landscape is more complex and fragmented• Panda has changed the way websites need to be optimised – content is more important than ever!• Paid search continues to offer new ad formats e.g. integration with Merchant Centre for use with ecommerce sites• Use data from PPC to identify converting keyphrases and use these for SEO• Social is important to generate direct traffic and sales; but also indirectly due to the importance of social indicators in SEO• You need to understand how mobile is used by shoppers, and check whether your website is compatible for use with mobile, tablets and other devices• Conversion optimisation and measurement is key to maximise the ROI from different channels
