  • 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
  • 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
  • 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)
  • A good example of a directory for European Businesses – 500,000 businesses in 27 languages.
  • 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)
