  • 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
  • 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.
