  • When asked to speak to this group, your organizers suggested I discuss how much things have changed, how far we’ve come – not just in PR and communications, but as a society. That’s somewhat of a tall order, since when I was asked three months ago to participate I had no idea how relevant things would be on this very day. That’s how fast things are changing. My hope today is to do two things: Expand your awareness of what’s happening in the communications field and how it reflects the changing landscape of businessProvide some direction as to where to possibly start. The good news is that there really aren’t many rules in this new world order, The bad news is that there really aren’t many rules in this new world order!
  • Bottom line: this is not a fad, everyone, the most important thing to take away is that this is not a discussion about Facebook or Linked In, or MySpace or Twitter – I will briefly touch on those particular tools, but THEY are not the issue. Human nature has progressed to a point of transparency, collaboration, social networking, regardless of what platform of logo’d product they use. Don’t lose sight of this, it’s not going away.

      Title Tag, Meta Data & Main Body Content
      Inbound Links | Anchor Text
      3rd party links pointing from one website to another (a “vote”)
    • 9. Keywords: The Foundation of SEO
      How often keyword appears in page content is important in algorithm and ranking
      Keywords should be targeted to specific offering/content
      Keyword tool:
    • 10. Website Content
      Keyword should appear in:
      Title tag
      Meta keyword
      Meta description
      Heading tags (H1, H2, etc.)
      Bold text
      Link text
      Overall content of the page
    • 11. Keyword Density
      Number of times a keyword appears in overall written page content
      Don’t overrun page with too many keywords
      Content should remain readable
      Avoid keyword “stuffing”
      Good keyword density: 2-4%

    • 12. Inbound Links
      Inbound links are hyperlinks from one domain to another
      Google in particular, views inbound links as a type of “vote” from website for another site
      Link Popularity = the number of inbound links pointing to your website
      Popularity Tool:
    • 13. Anchor Text
      Visible, clickable text in a hyperlink
      The more often a keyword appears in anchor text of inbound links, the more likely it will rank well for that term in Google
