  18. 18. Consistency of Citations is Critical<br />The listings (name + address text) across different websites are interpreted by Google as local “citations” <br />The citations in local results are like links in the classic rankings – they help Places listings to rank higher.<br />http:/<br />
  19. 19. To Discover Places for Listings, Try Searching in Different Ways<br />Find sites that list multiple businesses of your type<br />See where Google sources photos from on other Places pages<br />Luckily, there are ways to work around this:<br />http:/<br />

  22. 22. The “Long Tail” of Video Sites<br />Long tail of video sites get 50% of all online video traffic/views!<br /><br />
  23. 23. Google’s Video Results Get High CTR<br />We’ve seen rankings on a video result in position #3+ produce more clicks than the #1 result in some cases.<br />http:/<br />
  24. 24. Any Page with an Embedded Video Can Rank<br />The video doesn’t need to be self-hosted, either. It’s fine to simply have a video on the page (even a YouTube embed) and still get the video snippet.<br />http:/<br />
  25. 25. You Don’t Need to Use YouTube<br />None of these come from YouTube, but from independent, non-video specific sites where a video has been embedded.<br />http:/<br />

  31. 31. Social Annotations from Your Network in “Regular” Search Results<br />As great as is, it doesn’t rank page one for this query unless I’m logged in and following Geraldine on Twitter.<br />http:/<br />
  32. 32. Grow Your Social Network to Reach Searchers<br />Geraldine’s blog is awesome, but it would never rank on page #1 for this query without the power of the social connection.<br />Check out for more on how search engines and social media are mixing together.<br />
  33. 33. The social connections appear to influence rank ordering.<br />http:/<br />These annotations undoubtedly increase CTR, particularly if the source is trusted.<br />
  34. 34. Hang on a tic... How did they know I’m connected to Kalena on Facebook?! I haven’t yet added Facebook to my Google account!<br />When Google starts using latent (rather than active) network connections, social becomes even more powerful.<br />http:/<br />
