Search Keywords, SEO and The Sales Funnel - Barbara webmama Coll - SMX Advanced 2010

2,265 views

Published on

Is there a set of keywords that define a 'sales funnel' for searchers. I don't think so. I think that you need to capture searchers wherever they are in their journey of discovery and buying. Successful optimization (SEO) of all web elements requires careful planning - and a ton of writing - around category, brand and product keywords.
