Next Level SEO:Social Media Integration - Internet Summit- 2011 (Bill Slawski)

9,067

Published on

Social media has changed the expectations
of searchers.

Searchers want fresher content, they want to
see what their friends and contacts have to
say, and they want access to experts and
authority figures and their thoughts on
timely events and news.

Search engines have no recourse
but to respond.”

  21. 21. Real Time Search • Address recency-sensitive queries [earthquake] • Avoid zero recall problem (no relevant search results) • Present novel, interesting, relevant results • Hard to use an “authority rank” when social sites not controlled by search enginehttp://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/12/relevance-meets-real-time-web.html

Social Search • Search Results based upon intimacy and trust • Includes social sites such as Twitter and Flickr (Need to connect these to your Google Account) • Now showing +1 activity and Google Plus Sharing • Results based upon relevance, and perhaps a User Rank • Number of contacts = number of people who may see you in social search resultshttp://www.google.com/support/websearch/bin/answer.py?answer=165228

  25. 25. Authorship Markup • Must follow steps to connect Google Account to authored content • All Blogspot and Youtube contributions automatically incorporate authorship markup • Some threshold contribution score in place may determine whether profile picture and other information appear in search results.http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2011/06/authorship-markup-and-web-search.html

  28. 28. http://infolab.stanford.edu/~echang/CIKM-keynote.pdf
  29. 29. User Ranks and Credential Scores An Authority score would be based upon an analysis of the quality of responses that someone makes on a social networking site and the contributiveness scores of the people who posted that content. Contributiveness scores would be based upon the quality of something that you post or upload to a social network and the authority scores of people who respond to that content.http://www.seobythesea.com/2011/07/how-google-might-rank-user-generated-web-content-in-google-and-other-social-networks/
  30. 30. Why Google Plus > Twitter + Facebook• Google has more access to collateral data about social network interactions on Google Plus• Google can create a credential score or User Rank based upon meaningful contributions and interactions• Google authorship markup assigns a digital signature to content you create inside and outside of Google Plus which impacts search display and likely rankings (especially with recency sensitive queries)
  31. 31. SEO and Social Networking• Promote your business and yourself through both SEO and Social Networking• Learn how best to use both together• Develop best practices and strategies for clients• Teach and coach clients on how to social network instead of networking for them• Use Social to build meaningful and interactive relationships rather than buying followers
