  • What is a Search Engine?
    Definition: An internet-based tool that searches an index of documents for a particular term, phrase or text specified by the user. Commonly used to refer to large web-based search engines that search through billions of pages on the internet.
    Different than a Directory
    Common Characteristics:
    Spider, Indexer, Database, Algorithm
    Find matching documents and display them according to relevance
    Frequent updates to documents searched and ranking algorithm
    Strive to produce “better”, more relevant results than competitors
  • Examples popular Search Engines
  • How Do Search Engines Work?
    Spider “crawls” the web to find new documents (web pages, other documents) typically by following hyperlinks from websites already in their database
    Search engines indexes the content (text, code) in these documents by adding it to their databases and then periodically updates this content
    Search engines search their own databases when a user enters in a search to find related documents (not searching web pages in real-time)
    Search engines rank the resulting documents using an algorithm (mathematical formula) by assigning various weights and ranking factors
  • Search Engines statistics
    Google – 41.6%
    Yahoo – 31.5%
    MSN – 27.4%
    AOL – 13.6%
    Ask Jeeves – 7.0%
  • Why is Search Engine Marketing important?
    85% of all traffic on the internet is referred to by search engines
    90% of all users don’t look past the first 30 results (most only view top 10)
    Search engine traffic is low and websites aren’t indexed because they are generally poorly optimized
    Cost-effective advertising
    Clear and measurable ROI
    Operates under this assumption:
    More (relevant) traffic + Good Conversions Rate = More Sales/Leads
  • What is SEO (Search Engine Optimization)?
    Refers to the process of “optimizing” both the on-page and off-page ranking factors in order to achieve high search engine rankings for targeted search terms.
    Refers to the “industry” that has been created regarding using keyword searching a means of increasing relevant traffic to a website
    Internal Link Structure
    Link Popularity / Relevance
    Key Factors
    Crawl ability / Optimized Code
    Content Relevance
  • On-page & Off-page ranking factors
    Effective On-page SEO may require changes to the HTML source code of a site, SEO tactics may be incorporated into web site development and design. The term "search engine friendly" may be used to describe web site designs, menus, content management systems, images, videos, shopping carts, and other elements that have been optimized for the purpose of search engine exposure.
    Off-page optimization are strategies for search engine optimization that are done off the pages of a website to maximize its performance in the search engines for target keywords related to the page content. Examples of off-page optimization include linking, and placing keywords within link anchor text. Methods of obtaining links can also be considered off-page optimization. These include:
    Press releases
    Article distribution
    Social networking via sites like MySpace, Digg, Twitter, Facebook, Orkut, Slashdot etc
    Link campaigns, such as asking complementary businesses to provide links
    Directory listings
    Link exchanges
    Three-way linking
    One-way linking
    Blogging
    Forum posting
    Multi way linking
    Internet Marketing
  • What is Organic & Non-Organic Search?
    Organic search results are listings on search engine results pages that appear because of their relevance to the search terms, as opposed to their being advertisements. In contrast, non-organic search results may include pay per click advertising.
    Non-Organic/Paid Search/Pay Per Click (PPC) is an Internet advertising model used on websites, in which advertisers pay their host only when their ad is clicked. With search engines, advertisers typically bid on keyword phrases relevant to their target market. Content sites commonly charge a fixed price per click rather than use a bidding system.
  • Pay Per Click
    Pay Per Click
    Where are the Organic/Non-Organic Results?
    Organic
  • Industry Research – Who gets the clicks?
    Organic Clicks vs. Paid Clicks
    The vast majority of clicks -- roughly 60 percent, go to organic listings.
  • Industry Research: Organic SEO is the most popular form of SEM
    Organic SEO is the most popular form of SEM, with almost three-quarters of advertisers using this method, with paid placement a very close second at 71%
  • Industry Research & The case for SEO
    Reasons to conduct SEO
    • The majority of clicks are going to Organic listings.
    • SEO is the most popular form of SEM.
    • SEO provides a high ROI.
    • Many people don’t go past the 1st page in the Search results.
    • Users trust the Natural results to be more relevant to their Search query.

  • White hat versus black hat
    A SEO tactic, technique or method is considered white hat if it conforms to the search engines' guidelines and involves no deception. White hat advice is generally summed up as creating content for users, not for search engines, and then making that content easily accessible to the spiders, rather than attempting to game the algorithm. White hat SEO is in many ways similar to web development that promotes accessibility, although the two are not identical.
    Black hat SEO attempts to improve rankings in ways that are disapproved of by the search engines, or involve deception. One black hat technique uses text that is hidden, either as text colored similar to the background, in an invisible div, or positioned off screen. Another method gives a different page depending on whether the page is being requested by a human visitor or a search engine, a technique known as cloaking. Search engines may penalize sites they discover using black hat methods, either by reducing their rankings or eliminating their listings from their databases altogether. Such penalties can be applied either automatically by the search engines' algorithms, or by a manual site review.
  • What is a SEO Algorithm?
    Top Secret! Only select employees of a search engines company know for certain
    Reverse engineering, research and experiments gives SEOs (search engine optimization professionals) a “pretty good” idea of the major factors and approximate weight assignments
    The SEO algorithm is constantly changed, tweaked & updated
    Websites and documents being searched are also constantly changing
    Varies by Search Engine – some give more weight to on-page factors, some to link popularity
