Rand Fishkin Keynotes

reykjavik-internet-marketing-conferenceWelcome to today’s live blogging from the Reykjavik Internet Marketing Conference here on OptimizeYourWeb.

We are getting under way right away, as is often the way of things. The welcome speech from Ingvar Hjálmarsson was light and entertaining but now the keynote speaker Rand Fiskin is on stage.

He is starting with something of a summary of methods used in internet marketing: blogging, SEO, PPC and the like. Which of these channels is appropriate for me as a company?

Rand’s personal feeling is that Conversion Rate Optimization is the crème de la crème of internet marketing…despite the fact that he works in SEO. Landing Page Optimization is important in bumping up the conversion rate. In fact, a simple experiment SEOmoz conducted increased the CR from 1.8 to 2.2 – meaning several million dollars extra revenue per year.

Search me, the newest of the new or is it?

So I was watching CNN and there was an interview with the founder of Search Me, Andy Adams. So what makes Search me better? You search and see the Blue list of links that was a system created back in the old age when everybody had a slow connection. But that is not anymore, you should just see the sites right away. So the if you search it shows you a screenshot of sites and that is all great but when I tested it it was slow in loading and it only shows one picture at a time and three or four others on the sides of the main result. But when I tried to search for Iceland, I found some good sites but there were missing pictures. It is still in BETA, so that is forgiven.

My feeling is that Search Me is on the right track but I am not convinced yet.
