    3. 3. QUEBEC DEMOGRAPHICS > In May 2009, 73.5% of Quebecers used the Internet regularly > Over 1 out of 6 Quebec Internet users go online at least once per day from a mobile device, 65% of them more than once > 55% made purchases online over the past semester > Numbers would be higher if debit payment was widely accepted > Quebec users trust their banks, not 3rd party websites! > 4-5 million active users > 70% French / 30% English > Montreal is a bilingual market: 60% French, 40% English > Any other city or region besides Montreal = 90% + French INTERACTIVE STRATEGY – NVISOLUTIONS.COM
    4. 4. QUEBEC FRENCH AUDIENCE > Quebec Search landscape is more experienced than France: ~ 8% searches are 1 keyword vs ~30% in France ~45% searches are 2 keywords vs ~22% in France ~35% searches are 3 keywords vs ~29% in France ~12% searches are 4+ keywords ~12% users are not satisfied by the search results displayed Data is gathered and normalized from multiple sources, including: ComScore Networks, NETendances study, personal experiences with hundreds of clients statistics, specific publications in Quebec, including a recent one from Skooiz « Comment les québécois cherchent-ils sur le web 2008 – 2009 », and great discussions with peers on the French markets in Quebec and France.

    5. 5. GOOGLE IN QUEBEC > Educated guess monthly searches: ~80-82% with 600-650 million searches INTERACTIVE STRATEGY – NVISOLUTIONS.COM Major Strengths Major Weaknesses Quebec and France sites are well divided More likely to get spammed Easiest to setup / most traffic Content network quality is below average Best ratio between time spent / ROI Confusion of Google.ca and Google.com in English

BING.CA IN QUEBEC > Our estimate on monthly searches: ~8-12% with 80-100 million searches INTERACTIVE STRATEGY – NVISOLUTIONS.COM Major Strengths Major Weaknesses Traffic quality Relevance is sometimes inaccurate Not a lot of advertisers (lower CPC!) Finally a decent branded name for Canada Time consuming platform and not a lot of traffic
    7. 7. QC.YAHOO.COM > Our estimate on monthly searches: ~3-5% with 30-40 million searches INTERACTIVE STRATEGY – NVISOLUTIONS.COM STRENGTHS WEAKNESSES Best traffic quality / ROI Small (for some verticals?) French content network Great Quebec French portal Generates lower traffic volume than Google/Bing Great Canadian account managers network Weaker in Quebec than in the rest of Canada (FR vs EN)
    8. 8. QUEBEC MARKET DISTRIBUTION > Several Major Quebec properties and verticals owned by a few actors: PowerCorp, Transcontinental, Quebecor > Top 3 actors strategy is mainly based on vertical acquisitions > Because of their size, the turnaround is much slower, they have a hard time to be agile > This leaves multiple opportunities to create many verticals (and maybe get acquired by any of those 3 leaders later!)

    16. 16. SEO VS PPC SHOWDOWN > SEO is better to grow audience, PPC is smarter to push events > SEO has a shady reputation while PPC is Google’s main revenue driver > SEO conversion is better than PPC (Clickfraud? Trust?) > SEO requires team commitment while PPC can almost be a 1 man show > SEO & PPC used together will improve Clickthrough & conversion rates > SEO can easily be much cheaper than PPC > SEO is long term, PPC is short term or event-driven > SEO doesn’t force you to pay for your own brand name but PPC lets you buy your competitors brand name  INTERACTIVE STRATEGY – NVISOLUTIONS.COM
    17. 17. CONFUSION #1: GOOGLE.COM International vs US > Since early 2008, Google.com international ≠ Google.com US > Canada is considered international > If you want to rank on Google.com US, act American (has setbacks) > Top5 that matters: Backlink profile, hosting, physical addresses listed on site, text about the country, Google local listing > Add the query &gl=us to see Google.com US results > Use the query &pws=0 to anonymize your results CONFUSION #2: SPEND IS OPPOSITE OF CURRENT DEMAND > Current availability of clicks on Search Engines - 82–88% in organic (when in recession, it gets higher) - 12–18% in paid (when in recession, it gets higher) > Current spend of major clients on Search Engines - 10-12% in organic - 88-90% in paid INTERACTIVE STRATEGY – NVISOLUTIONS.COM
