  • What is Usability?
    • Providing customers
      • What they want
      • Where they want
    • If they can’t find it, its not there
  • My Online Marketing Background
    • Active user for more than a decade
      • Fascinated by the technology and industry.
    • Google, Yahoo, Baidu stock investor since 2004
      • Keenly followed “what’s new” in Search Engine World.

      • Online Marketing Strategy for B2B and B2C companies
      • SEO / SEM implementations impacting business results
  • Why do Search Engines Exist?
    • A Web search engine is a search engine designed to algorithmically search for information on the World Wide Web.
    • The usefulness of a search engine depends on the relevance of the result set it gives back. While there may be millions of webpages that include a particular word or phrase, some pages may be more relevant, popular, or authoritative than others.
    • Most search engines employ methods to rank the results to provide the "best" results first. The methods also change over time as Internet usage changes and new techniques evolve.
  • Where Would You Click?
  • Evolution of Search Engine
    • Index
    • Keywords
    • Phrases
    • Content Relevancy
    • Geo-Targeting / Localized Search
    • Provide “Optimal Result”
    • Emulate “Real Searchers”
    • Emulate “You”. Use searchers preferences and profile while emulating “real searchers”
  • How People Choose to Click?
    • For People to Click on a link:
    • Provide Appropriate Messaging.
    • Address all their concerns.
    • Begin with Title / Description and go deep into the sales cycle.
    • SEO Services must accomplish this task.
  • SEO == Ranks and Web Traffic The Biggest Myth…
    • Let’s look at an example
        • Now Imagine Real Searchers and how they might think:
        • What does the company offer (SCJP Exam prep to pass SCJP Certification Exam)
        • What have they done so far (Since 2000, 1M+ users, 50K customer)
        • What did other people get from them (99.7% success)
        • Will they be valuable for me (Comprehensive report)
        • Can I try (free mock test)
        • Are they a 2-4 people shop (ISO9001 certification)
        • Can I trust them (100% guarantee)
    This looks like the site I want. Let me go-forward.
  • New World SEO
    • Keyword Stuffing
    • Keyword Targeting and Link Building
    • Providing Relevant Content
