2: Voice search & voice answers: hype vs. reality
1: How Google’s future changes what works in SEO

5: When & how to use ads vs. organic
Google’s Future
The Healthcare Search Landscape in 2019: SEO, Content Marketing, & More
Here’s Why That Should Scare
Web Creators…
Google Needs Growth, & It’s Not Coming From New
Searchers (at least in developed countries)

So, What’s Google Doing to
Get Growth?
Solving Searchers Faster to Create More Search
Addiction
They Do This Through Web Result Replacements…
Content Scraping that Precludes a Click-Through
Giving Their Own Properties Preferential Treatment
And More Telepathic, Direct-to-the-Answer Results.
In Ads, the Focus is a Little
Different…
#1: Larger numbers of
more subtle ads
#2: More kinds of ads

Google’s 2019 ABCs:
Biasing Visibility & Clicks to Paid Results
Answering Queries in SERPs & Sending Out Less Traffic
Competing Directly with Publishers
(and ranking their own properties ahead of anyone else’s)
How Can Marketers
React?
Control Your Brand with On-SERP SEO
ID sites that rank in
your space, & build
profiles on them
Claim Your Panels
Leverage the Rich
Snippets Google
Offers
When KWs Show
Aggregated Answers,
Influence the Publishers
Below to Get Listed
To Get Into These…
Get Mentioned + Listed In These
Double Down on Branded Demand Creation
e.g. Elvie’s #FreeTheFeed
campaign got Londoners
searching and sharing to
create brand awareness
(and bias future
searches/clicks)
If Other Sites Can Rank, But
You Can’t (Yet);
Use Barnacle SEO
Every one of these sites
enables user-submitted or
guest editorial contributions
Shift SEO-Focused Content to KWs
Google Is Less Likely to Cannibalize
ViaAhrefs
40%+ of all searches get <100
searches per month. The long tail is
still a gold mine for SEO.
500-30,000+ searches/month, and
hyper-competitive
ViaKeywordExplorer
But scroll down, and the long tail still
looks mighty attractive
ViaKeywordExplorer
Use CTR % Estimates in Your KW Research
This metric uses clicksteam data to
estimate the % of searchers who’ll
click on the standard, non-paid,
organic SERPs
Amazon & Product

IG’s grown ~2.5X on desktop (at a time when desktop overall

Voice Search
Hype vs. Reality
Voice Search & Mobile Apps Are Probably Cannibalizing
Some Queries
ViaPerficientDigital’s2019Surveyof1,719people
Does Voice Search Change Anything?
Not
Really.
Do Voice Answers Change Anything?
Yes!
“That is called the
Achilles Tendon.”
ViaHigherVisibility’s2018Surveyof
2,017SmartphoneOwners
Unfortunately, we don’t yet have real data, just surveys
(which, historically, are poor representations of how people
actually behave).
Why Most Content
Fails
For 15 Years, Content Marketing Worked
Great Like This…
Content

2001-2016

Amplification
Grow social, email, RSS,

Brand Recognition

Referral Traffic
Rank Higher, Get
More Traffic
But, in 2019, Four Forces Work Against This Model
#2 Demands for monetization and growth have pushed tech
monopolies to become publishers’competitors
#1 Search Engine & Social NetworkAlgorithms Have Become
Winner Take Most Platforms
#3 Amplifiers are overwhelmed by requests and more skeptical than
ever before
#4 Traffic quantity correlates less & less with conversions
How Can Marketers
React?
Successful Content Targets Topics that Resonate with
Amplifiers, Not Just Customers
What Your
Customers Care
About
What Influential
Publications & People
Your Customers
Listen To Care About
Topics with high
potential reach
The Most Visited Piece the NYT Ever Published?
Dialect Quiz Map via NY Times
Grabs you fast, then demands
engagement
Plays to the psychological
desire for categorizing oneself

Content as Product
This interactive piece from Typeform isn’t
just “good content;” it delivers:
Unique value
Reference-worthiness
A view into Typeform’s
competitive advantage
Rise of the Conversational UI via Typeform
Content → Email Subscriber → Conversion
“A visitor who reaches us via search is 1/19th as likely to
subscribe as one who comes in from a newsletter; a
reader coming in from Facebook is 1/12th; and a reader
coming in from Twitter is 1/6th.”

But Rand, How Do I Rank
My Pages in Google?
8 Broad Areas of Google’s Ranking Algorithm
(for classic, ten-blue-links style results):
Links
Authority of
Host Domain
Query
Satisfaction
User
Experience
Personalization
Technical &
Crawl
KeywordsContent
Does the text match what Google’s ML systems
calculate to be relevant, high-quality, & a match
for the searcher’s intent?
Content
Editorially-given, anchor-text-rich, followed links
from high quality sources still matter to Google
(esp. in competitive results)
Links
Via Link Explorer
If Google sees high rates of pogo-sticking or other
signals that your page/site isn’t solving search
queries, they’ll likely rank you lower
Query
Satisfaction
Via WB Friday
Using the searcher’s keywords intelligently on
your page still matters for rankings (and for CTR
in the results)
Keywords
e.g. Ring failed to rank
until they changed their
page title to include
“video doorbell”
Domains accrue signals of quality & value.
Powerful domains may give the pages they host
a boost in ranking ability.
Authority of
Host Domain
Google wants to see sites provide an easy-to-
use, intuitive experience on every device, at
every speed, without impediment.
User
Experience
Speed & accessibility to crawlers still matters, and
Google still doesn’t handle non-text, or non-HTML-link
accessible pages well.
Technical &
Crawl
The geography, device, search history, and
timing of a searcher’s query can all change
Google’s results significantly.
Personalization
Different Result Types Have Other Ranking Inputs
Ads vs. Organic
The Late Adopters Are Finally Crossing the Digital
Marketing Chasm
Via Geoffrey Moore
These players have lots of $$$, entrenched
brands, & are used to overpaying for
untrackable advertising
Venture Dollars Are Also Flooding Ad Markets
Via PWC/MoneyTree
Investment Dollars Aren’t Seeking Profits… Just
Growth
Via Statista
Ad Bids in Many Sectors Go Far Above What’s
Profitable
Thus, Ad Costs Go Up, While ROI Trends Down
Via BusinessInsider
And Ad Tracking Getting Much Harder
Which Will Reinforce Large Quantities of “Dumb
Money” > More Trackable Advertising
The concept of a 90-day look back window is a
wrap. Retargeting beyond 7 days is dead.
Effectively, for a sales cycle of any realistic
length, the whole concept of attribution outside
of last click is over.
Via iPullRank
Hence, Influencer Marketing Is GettingALot ofAttention
ViaGoogleTrends
And That’s Even Harder to Track
Via Linqia
Accountability is a Massive Issue
Via TheDrum
“I do campaigns for brands on a weekly basis
and less than half ever come back for metrics;
less than 50% ever want to know what’s
happened. That makes me think it’s PRs playing
a numbers game and once a campaign has
gone no one is really interested.”
How Should Marketers
React?
The Most FollowedAccount(s) that Match a Keyword Search
Traditional Influencer Marketing Seeks Out:
The Most-ReachableAccount(s) that Match a Keyword Search
OR
But That’s Not Really What We Want…
Targeting on Audience Size > Audience Match
4mm followers
Followed by 19% of profiles
that frequently talk about
“supercars”
What You Really Want: People & Publications YourAudience Engages
With Most
Small overall following, but reaches
exactly who we want to reach!
First: Organic + Brand; Then: Ads + CRO
If you’re not yet known, liked, &
trusted, ad ROI sucks.
Via Wordstream
New to a market? This
happens.
Known & loved? Welcome
to Profitville.
How to Win at Digital Advertising in 2019
Step 2: Earn brand exposure through organic, social, content, SEO,
events, & targeted brand marketing
Step 3: Get >1 organic visit (or a social engagement)
Step 4: Pay to advertise where your audience engages to those who
already know+like you
Step 1: Interview, survey, or use profile data to discover where your
audiences engage (and with whom/what)

  • 1. Rand Fishkin | Founder & CEO Healthcare Search & SEO in 2019 The forces changing search, searchers, and search engine optimization (with a focus on the health vertical)
  • 3. 5 Crucial Topics in Healthcare SEO 2: Voice search & voice answers: hype vs. reality 1: How Google’s future changes what works in SEO 3: Amazon and product search 4: Why 1% of content works, and 99% falls flat 5: When & how to use ads vs. organic
  • 6. Here’s Why That Should Scare Web Creators…
  • 7. Google Needs Growth, & It’s Not Coming From New Searchers (at least in developed countries) - 5,000,000,000 10,000,000,000 15,000,000,000 20,000,000,000 25,000,000,000 30,000,000,000 35,000,000,000 40,000,000,000 U.S. Searches by Month (web browsers only) Google Desktop Google Images Desktop Google Mobile Google Images Mobile
  • 8. So, What’s Google Doing to Get Growth?
  • 9. Solving Searchers Faster to Create More Search Addiction
  • 10. They Do This Through Web Result Replacements…
  • 11. Content Scraping that Precludes a Click-Through
  • 12. Giving Their Own Properties Preferential Treatment
  • 13. And More Telepathic, Direct-to-the-Answer Results.
  • 14. In Ads, the Focus is a Little Different… #1: Larger numbers of more subtle ads #2: More kinds of ads
  • 15. Google’s Desktop CTRs March 2018 (US): Paid: 6.1% Organic: 65.3% Zero Click Searches: 34.7% *Note:Sumsaregreaterthan100%assomesearchersclickmultipleresultsperquery
  • 16. Google’s Mobile CTRs September 2018 (US): *Note:Sumsaregreaterthan100%assomesearchersclickmultipleresultsperquery Paid: 9.5% Organic: 38.4% Zero Click Searches: 61.6%
  • 17. How Do These Changes Affect Searcher Behavior? 0.0% 10.0% 20.0% 30.0% 40.0% 50.0% 60.0% 70.0% 80.0% Desktop Organic CTR, Paid CTR, and Zero Click Searches (2016-2019) Desktop Organic Clickthroughs Desktop Paid Clicks Desktop Zero Clicks Desktop Zero-Click Searches Up ~12% in 3 Years

  • 19. Google’s 2019 ABCs: Biasing Visibility & Clicks to Paid Results Answering Queries in SERPs & Sending Out Less Traffic Competing Directly with Publishers (and ranking their own properties ahead of anyone else’s)
  • 21. Control Your Brand with On-SERP SEO ID sites that rank in your space, & build profiles on them Claim Your Panels Leverage the Rich Snippets Google Offers
  • 22. When KWs Show Aggregated Answers, Influence the Publishers Below to Get Listed To Get Into These… Get Mentioned + Listed In These
  • 23. Double Down on Branded Demand Creation
  • 24. e.g. Elvie’s #FreeTheFeed campaign got Londoners searching and sharing to create brand awareness (and bias future searches/clicks)
  • 25. If Other Sites Can Rank, But You Can’t (Yet); Use Barnacle SEO Every one of these sites enables user-submitted or guest editorial contributions
  • 26. Shift SEO-Focused Content to KWs Google Is Less Likely to Cannibalize ViaAhrefs 40%+ of all searches get <100 searches per month. The long tail is still a gold mine for SEO.
  • 28. But scroll down, and the long tail still looks mighty attractive ViaKeywordExplorer
  • 29. Use CTR % Estimates in Your KW Research This metric uses clicksteam data to estimate the % of searchers who’ll click on the standard, non-paid, organic SERPs
  • 31. Is Anyone Else Taking Google’s Market Share? - 10,000,000,000 20,000,000,000 30,000,000,000 40,000,000,000 50,000,000,000 60,000,000,000 Desktop Share of Searches by Month Google Google Images Google Maps YouTube Bing Yahoo Facebook Amazon Twitter Pinterest DuckDuckGo AOL Ask Wikipedia ViaJumpshot’sclickstream panelof10mm+devicesintheUS,browser dataonly(noapps)

  • 38. Voice Search & Mobile Apps Are Probably Cannibalizing Some Queries ViaPerficientDigital’s2019Surveyof1,719people
  • 39. Does Voice Search Change Anything? Not Really.
  • 40. Do Voice Answers Change Anything? Yes! “That is called the Achilles Tendon.”
  • 41. ViaHigherVisibility’s2018Surveyof 2,017SmartphoneOwners Unfortunately, we don’t yet have real data, just surveys (which, historically, are poor representations of how people actually behave).
  • 43. For 15 Years, Content Marketing Worked Great Like This…
  • 44. Content Flywheel 2001-2016 KW Research + Industry Intuition Publish Content Promote via Social Channels Push to email + RSS subscribers Earn Links + Amplification Grow social, email, RSS, & WoM channels Grow Authority & Brand Recognition Earn Search & Referral Traffic Rank Higher, Get More Traffic
  • 45. But, in 2019, Four Forces Work Against This Model #2 Demands for monetization and growth have pushed tech monopolies to become publishers’competitors #1 Search Engine & Social NetworkAlgorithms Have Become Winner Take Most Platforms #3 Amplifiers are overwhelmed by requests and more skeptical than ever before #4 Traffic quantity correlates less & less with conversions
  • 47. Successful Content Targets Topics that Resonate with Amplifiers, Not Just Customers What Your Customers Care About What Influential Publications & People Your Customers Listen To Care About Topics with high potential reach
  • 48. The Most Visited Piece the NYT Ever Published? Dialect Quiz Map via NY Times Grabs you fast, then demands engagement Plays to the psychological desire for categorizing oneself & others Creates a viral loop (through sharing & seeing friends’ answers)
  • 49. Content as Product This interactive piece from Typeform isn’t just “good content;” it delivers: Unique value Reference-worthiness A view into Typeform’s competitive advantage Rise of the Conversational UI via Typeform
  • 50. Content → Email Subscriber → Conversion “A visitor who reaches us via search is 1/19th as likely to subscribe as one who comes in from a newsletter; a reader coming in from Facebook is 1/12th; and a reader coming in from Twitter is 1/6th.” -Nicholas Thompson, Editor in Chief Via Wired
  • 53. But Rand, How Do I Rank My Pages in Google?
  • 54. 8 Broad Areas of Google’s Ranking Algorithm (for classic, ten-blue-links style results): Links Authority of Host Domain Query Satisfaction User Experience Personalization Technical & Crawl KeywordsContent
  • 55. Does the text match what Google’s ML systems calculate to be relevant, high-quality, & a match for the searcher’s intent? Content
  • 56. Editorially-given, anchor-text-rich, followed links from high quality sources still matter to Google (esp. in competitive results) Links Via Link Explorer
  • 57. If Google sees high rates of pogo-sticking or other signals that your page/site isn’t solving search queries, they’ll likely rank you lower Query Satisfaction Via WB Friday
  • 58. Using the searcher’s keywords intelligently on your page still matters for rankings (and for CTR in the results) Keywords e.g. Ring failed to rank until they changed their page title to include “video doorbell”
  • 59. Domains accrue signals of quality & value. Powerful domains may give the pages they host a boost in ranking ability. Authority of Host Domain
  • 60. Google wants to see sites provide an easy-to- use, intuitive experience on every device, at every speed, without impediment. User Experience
  • 61. Speed & accessibility to crawlers still matters, and Google still doesn’t handle non-text, or non-HTML-link accessible pages well. Technical & Crawl
  • 62. The geography, device, search history, and timing of a searcher’s query can all change Google’s results significantly. Personalization
  • 63. Different Result Types Have Other Ranking Inputs
  • 65. The Late Adopters Are Finally Crossing the Digital Marketing Chasm Via Geoffrey Moore These players have lots of $$$, entrenched brands, & are used to overpaying for untrackable advertising
  • 66. Venture Dollars Are Also Flooding Ad Markets Via PWC/MoneyTree
  • 67. Investment Dollars Aren’t Seeking Profits… Just Growth Via Statista
  • 68. Ad Bids in Many Sectors Go Far Above What’s Profitable
  • 69. Thus, Ad Costs Go Up, While ROI Trends Down Via BusinessInsider
  • 70. And Ad Tracking Getting Much Harder Which Will Reinforce Large Quantities of “Dumb Money” > More Trackable Advertising The concept of a 90-day look back window is a wrap. Retargeting beyond 7 days is dead. Effectively, for a sales cycle of any realistic length, the whole concept of attribution outside of last click is over. Via iPullRank
  • 71. Hence, Influencer Marketing Is GettingALot ofAttention ViaGoogleTrends
  • 72. And That’s Even Harder to Track Via Linqia
  • 73. Accountability is a Massive Issue Via TheDrum “I do campaigns for brands on a weekly basis and less than half ever come back for metrics; less than 50% ever want to know what’s happened. That makes me think it’s PRs playing a numbers game and once a campaign has gone no one is really interested.”
  • 75. The Most FollowedAccount(s) that Match a Keyword Search Traditional Influencer Marketing Seeks Out: The Most-ReachableAccount(s) that Match a Keyword Search OR But That’s Not Really What We Want…
  • 76. Targeting on Audience Size > Audience Match 4mm followers Followed by 19% of profiles that frequently talk about “supercars”
  • 77. What You Really Want: People & Publications YourAudience Engages With Most Small overall following, but reaches exactly who we want to reach!
  • 78. First: Organic + Brand; Then: Ads + CRO If you’re not yet known, liked, & trusted, ad ROI sucks.
  • 79. Via Wordstream New to a market? This happens. Known & loved? Welcome to Profitville.
  • 80. How to Win at Digital Advertising in 2019 Step 2: Earn brand exposure through organic, social, content, SEO, events, & targeted brand marketing Step 3: Get >1 organic visit (or a social engagement) Step 4: Pay to advertise where your audience engages to those who already know+like you Step 1: Interview, survey, or use profile data to discover where your audiences engage (and with whom/what)
