  • Subject lines are the first part of the process. What they see in their inbox, needs to entice them to open the email and read on. It’s worth remembering that not everyone uses outlook, some people are on web mail, so the subject line may be the only thing they can see.
    RETURN Subject lines are crucial - make that first impression count
    Esp. with rented lists, as they won’t be expecting your email. But with any email, the subject line is your opening gambit. Make it work for you.
    The ultimate goal is, to make them open the email…
    Let’s talk about spam for a moment - Capital letters, over punctuation, lines that look like replies to messages you sent or personal queries all look like spam mail and should be avoided. Even the word ‘free’ can have spam connotations these days. So keep it simple and descriptive.
    Give a flavour of the contents of the email - be effective and to the point
    An effective subject line puts the necessary information into the subject so that your readers can tell on the spot what to expect when they open the email. And make them open it.
    RETURN And for owned lists, use your company name as a reminder that they opted in to receive it.
    RETURN - this example covers all bases - it describes the contents, gives a company name and has an additional incentive...

    Search Submit Pro is a unique solution, designed to compliment your Sponsored Search and SEO programs. SSP allows you to manage search in a holistic way and to deliver the right message to the right consumer at the right time.
    To provide some context around why marketers value the SSP program, I want to start by talking a bit about the search landscape and searcher behavior. Today there are 155 million unique searchers in the U.S. and the population of searchers is growing 28% YOY. As this search activity continues to grow, these searches are also becoming more complex. In 1998 an avg query was made of 1 ½ words. Today, 57% of all queries are made up of three or more words. The explosion of search and searcher sophistication really highlights the need for having the right tools in your arsenal to target the right consumers.
  • The number of monthly searches is obviously an important factor – generally a phrase with high search volume is better to capture than one for which there are not many searches. This is not always the case though if there is high business relevance associated with a particular phrase we may still want to sue it
    Because we cant necessarily capture all the phrases we want (we may not have appropriate web pages in our site) some prioritisation is necessary. So, for example, it might be considered more important to give ‘ heat treatment services’ a higher priority than ‘carburising services’ when we do the optimisation. We could always come back to the secondary phrase later. More about this when we discuss implementation in the next module.
    Sometimes its difficult to understand a searchers intent when he types in a phrase. For example one word phrases - for example, ‘atmosphere’, ‘oxidising’ and so on – are typically not good phrases to include. This is not always the case as clearly words like ‘carburising’, ‘nitriding’ and so on do have relevance even though they are only single words.
    Sometimes phrases can have different or multiple meanings – for example if someone searches for ‘cold treatment’ is he searching for our services or a cure for his medical condition.?
    In these case we should rule out the phrase or think how we could make it more specific by changing it
    Competition is another factor which is sometimes considered

    Your copy writing in paid search is very important.
  • Links on other sites will lead visitors to you, hence in its own right it is an important aspect of online marketing leading potential customers directly to your site. Obviously the more links the more different ways leading to your site.
    Over and above this it is an important part of search marketing, since the more links you have the more important you are in the eyes of the search engines and the higher up in the rankings you will appear ( we’ll qualify this in more detail as we move through)
  • There are many different ways to develop external links.
    The important point is to have a plan which we can use to develop our ongoing approach to link building. As we move through, particularly the practical exercises later, you will begin to put your own plans for successful link development in place.
  • In the example here a keyphrase on the site is ‘technical translation’ so ideally the incoming link should include ‘technical translation’ in the hyperlink text. This is optimal for SEO and where we have control (for example when sending details to a reciprocal linking partner) we should ensure this is the case. Of course we do not always have this control – many directories dictate the form of the link.
  • A good example of a directory for European Businesses – 500,000 businesses in 27 languages.
  • Isedb.com is a directory of directories.
    You’ll get to study this is in practical exercises
  • In the practical exercise you will download the Google toolbar which will allow you to determine the Page Rank of every site you visit. You will also check your own.
    This indicator (shown above) is just that, an indicator. Increasingly people are reporting that its accuracy is suspect and that Google may be intentionally giving out inaccurate PRs so its more difficult for people to fathom its algorithm. However it remains an important indicator for most sites but care must be taken not to consider it as absolutely accurate.
  • Blogger – now owned by Google was the original, and still one of the largest, Blog sites where you can easily set up your own blog.
  • There are many PR directories which you will search for in the practical session.
    A great way to submit you news stories and at the same time drop your website link (on high Page Rank sites)
  • Emphasise the importance of a high listing – pointing out how click throughs degrade as we move down the list
    Point out ‘natural’ and ppc listings
  • This particular slide breaks down from the previous slide the exact constituent elements of online display and classified adverting.
  • Figleaves uses specific and general search terms to drive qualified and less qualified users to its web site. For example individuals typing in “Wonderbra”, and those with a more general enquiry such as “lingerie”. From initially using 250 search terms, Figleaves now uses 6,000 search terms to produce both types of response, and all types of buyer.

    • 18. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2010 The Spidering Process
    • 19. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2010 Are you in the Google index? Site:www.yourdomain.com  Use the ‘Site’ command with your domain name at the Google search box For Example:  Site:www.businesslinkke nt.com  497 web pages in the index
    • 20. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2010 Check your spiderability – can the search engines spider your whole site?  http://tools.seobook.com/g eneral/spider- test/index.php  http://www.se-spider.com/
    • 21. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2010 http://www.se-spider.com/
    • 22. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2010
    • 23. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2010  Use a sitemap  Use html navigation  Add html links to all other important pages  Use a google sitemap – www.xml-sitemaps.com  Check your spiderability at http://www.ranks.nl/cgi- bin/ranksnl/tools/checklin k.pl MAKE YOUR SITE “SPIDERABLE”
    • 24. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2010 HTML Sitemap
    • 25. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2010 Register with Google Webmaster Central (GWC) Don’t forget Bing Webmaster Tools!
    • 26. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2010 Getting the right domain and hosting  UK company  Targeting the UK  In UK English  Weak on inbound links  .com domain  But - Google thinks it’s NORWEGIAN – Because that’s where it’s hosted…….
    • 27. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2010 International traffic Issues  Search engines will use the top level domain (TLD) to assess where you want traffic from (eg - .co.uk, .de, .it etc)  If you have a .com (or .net, .info etc) they will use your hosting location to determine this  Use Google Webmaster central to override this and tell Google where you want traffic from
    • 28. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2010 Multi language/ Multi site issues  Option 1: Have different translated versions of the same website under different TLD’s (eg – www.heskins.it; www.heskins.fr )  Option 2: Have a .com domain with separate country specific folders with translated pages AND use GWC to instruct Google that different parts of the site are relevant to different countries (see www.pneumat-europe.com) – Another option here is to use subdomains rather than folders (eg www.deutch.yoursite.com)

    • 99. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2010 New site or not?  New domains take a while to get ranked by Google (let’s say 6 months)  If possible add new pages to existing sites to get quicker rankings  If necessary use existing domain to capture phrases and redirect to new site – Eg Heskins.com to Heskins.fr and Heskins.it – Use .com to capture italian and french searches and redirect to relevant site – Use GWC to tell Google that part of .com site dedicated to french and italian traffic
    • 100. (c) Jan Klin & Associates 2010 Essentials for new sites….  Your Content management system (CMS) has to produce search engine compliant metadata – unique on every page  The CMS should generate SE friendly urls – Eg www.yoursite.co.uk/blue_widgets – NOT - http://www.yoursite.com/bvsn/bvcom/ep/home.do? tabId=3&BV_SessionID=EngineID=cccd  You need the functionality to override this metadata to streamline the SEO moving forwards  The architecture has to be search engine optimised – eg most important pages close to homepage  Use Google Webmaster Central (GWC) to set up site maps, analytics, geographic area , etc and monitor spidering  http://www.janklin.com/blog/seo-and-new-websites
    • 101.
