  • Search + Social:10 Actions to Get More Value from your Organic Marketing Tomorrow.
    Rand Fishkin, CEO & Co-founder, SEOmoz
    Webit Expo, Sofia, Bulgaria; October 2010
  • Criteria for this Presentation
    Every Action I Recommend MUST:
    • Be usable and valuable to your business tomorrow
    • Help to drive more search and/or social visits
    • Be Presentable in 200 seconds or less
  • Action #1:Earn Links Google Will Always Want to Count
  • Etsy: Self-Promotion = Links & Rankings
    Every seller wants to promote their “store”, and thus, links to Etsy
  • Anyone who embeds the video, links back to our site
  • Action #2:Build Content that Will Be Shared
  • Data earns links; opinions… not so much
  • Nearly Every Site on This List Links to It:
  • Action #3:Get More ReTweets
  • Action #4:Grow Your Site’s User-Generated Content
  • Build a Following First; Then a Community
  • Make Participation as Frictionless as Possible
    Makes it SUPER EASY to participate in their community
  • Reward Users Who Participate
    Users LOVE Badges!
  • Action #5:Engage the Right “Tweeters”
  • Twitter is (almost certainly) influencing (at least some) rankings
    Lots of tweets, virtually no links, but remarkable rankings
  • Twitter can send lots of direct traffic
  • You need to target the right Tweeters
  • The Ones Who Send Real Traffic
  • Not the “Grade”
    Use the “Rank”
  • Action #6:Get Rankings in Google’s Maps/Local/Places
  • Local SERPs (now “Places” in the US)
    This guy is not #1
  • Find the Listing Sources + Get Them!
  • Action #7:Find Errors & Missed Opportunities on Your Site
  • Google Webmaster Tools
  • SEOmoz Web App
  • Xenu Link Sleuth
  • Action #8:Get Maximum SEO Value from Your Web Content
  • Many Domains vs. One Domain
  • Action #9:Make Every Visitor More Valuable
  • Simple Explanations w/ Help on Hover
  • Clear differentiation
  • Obvious Free Trial
  • Re-assurance in purchase process
  • AJAX load of payment inputs
  • Action #10:Take Advantage of Real-Time Search + Social
