  • As a visitor refines their search criteria, there are certain patterns that emerge in their queries.
  • With so many tactical options available to today's search marketer, it can sometimes be difficult to determine which approaches are best for achieving specific goals. Should press releases be optimized for increased brand awareness? Or, will a PPC campaign achieve better results?
  • Search engine results aren't realized simply from optimizing your website anymore. Gaining an understanding of the multi-channel nature of the Internet is key to successful online marketing campaigns.
  • A common misperception about search marketing is that it consists only of on-page optimization. In reality, SEM touches countless online channels with the ultimate goal of bringing targeted traffic to a web site. This infographic illustrates the number of channels that search marketing taps into - in addition to search engines - to deliver the right people to your content.
  • Many cases can be made for different types of effective advertising. But what makes search engine marketing stand out from the rest? This infographic demonstrates the mindset of the buyer and their ability to easily convert while in the medium.
  • Most people still prefer listings found on the first page of results, but as users become more savvy, they realize that sometimes better results can be found by looking further into the search result pages.
  • Collectively, segmented marketing initiatives will help increase your baseline traffic over time. The traffic bump infographic demonstrates the potential of gaining loyal readers with every marketing initiative.
  • There are many aspects of the blogosphere that make it attractive to search marketers: the sharing and distribution of content, the potential for viral marketing and link bait, and the associated linking opportunities. But, so much more goes into the relationship we have with blog communities. This infographic describes both the tangible and intangible benefits of engaging with the blogosphere.
  • A search engine marketing campaign isn't complete without including some elements of social media. While engaging in social media alone can provide impressive results, this week's infographic illustrates how properly planned tactics can have a positive impact on your search results.
  • Organic optimization brings more than just results in the search engines. This week's infographic illustrates the additional benefits and return on investment that comes along with properly optimizing a site and pursuing targeted keywords.
  • Overview of steps
  • Customers use various keywords. Think about different keyword spelling, antonyms, synonyms, words with spaces or no spacesThis is a great free tool. Take advantage of it!!

    • 40. Keyword Research<br />When you begin the process of keyword research, the first step is to think like your target audience and how they would enter the phrases for what they are searching for.<br />
    • 41. Keyword Research<br />This infographic details an essential element of keyword research: exploring conversations that are happening on the web. By combing through competitive and industry websites, relevant blog postings, and popular tag sites, new phrases are discovered and search frequencies can be determined.<br />
    • 42. Keyword Research<br />Keyword research involves so much more than just looking up search frequencies. Critical factors such as budget restrictions, competition levels, and business strategy must be considered in order to develop a results-driven search marketing plan..<br />
    • 43. Getting Ranked: The Long Tail Keyword Equation<br />Once an SEO gets to a certain level of expertise, he or she can typically select a list of key phrases and map out exactly what steps are necessary to get those phrases ranked. This infographic demonstrates what that equation for ranking success may look like for a long-tail phrase.<br />
    • 44. Long Tail SEO<br />The strongest search marketing campaigns pursue rankings for a combination of high-traffic phrases that are likely to bring many visitors to the site as well as highly-specific, 3- or 4-word phrases that are more likely to convert a targeted buyer.<br />
    • 45. B2B Long Tail SEO<br />It&amp;apos;s hard to dispute that the Long Tail is an important concept in Search. A lot of times, though, we tend to think of the long tail as being a B2C concept by relating it to specific product names in ecommerce situations. But, it&amp;apos;s just as relevant in the B2B world. One-word phrases bring businesses up against a lot of competition, but the benefit of increased traffic may outweigh the expense of ranking. On the flip side, credibility-building site assets like case studies can be optimized with longer-tail phrases in order to boost the probability of conversion. Where does your SEM campaign fit into the curve? <br />
    • 46. Link Juice<br />Not all links are created equal. Most search marketers already know the answer. But, how do you differentiate between links to figure out which ones are better than others? This infographic visualizes the various site and link components that combine to form link juice.<br />
