Speaking at SES London on a session about PPC tools

seslon10_HearMeSpeakkmhSearch Engine Strategies (SES) is one of the oldest conferences in the field and highly respected as such. Spoke on this conference couple of times before and it‘s great to be invited again. The topic is very dear to me as we do PPC for some of our clients at Nordic eMarketing. 

Some of the questions that this session should be addressing are, are there tools attendees could be using right now to help get better conversions, lower costs, or save hours of time in work? The short answer is yes, the longer one is that you will need to come to SES to see more.

Search Engine Optimization is not a legitimate form of marketing

Derek Powazek says that Search Engine Optimization is not a legitimate form of marketing. It should not be undertaken by people with brains or souls. If someone charges you for SEO, you have been conned. He is titled author, designer and troublemaker, I am gona write this statement on the troublemaker part I am also going to write this statement on the realization after reading his post that he does not seem to know much about SEO and what it is all about, it’s not only for viagra and poker sites.

I really like this paragraph “Occasionally a darkside SEO master may find some loophole in the Google algorithm to exploit, which might actually lead to an increase in traffic. But that ill-gotten traffic gain won’t last long. Google changes the way it ranks its index monthly (if not more), so even if some SEO technique worked, and usually they don’t, it’ll last for a couple weeks, tops.” I really love this guy!

Should one get into Google’s real-time results?

google-real-time-search

On 7th December of 2009, Google launched real-time search results into search pages but what do these real-time results look like? Google search page results update currently discussed topics from social network sites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, FriendFeed, Jaiku and Identi.ca just as they are happening.

How Google chooses the real-time results or finds out which posted messages are true is yet unknown. However, there are some things one can do. Google analyzes the content from blog posts, tweets etc. to verify the value and the quality of the posted message to place the real-time results and avoid anything that looks like spam. Later on the collected text will be used to update page rankings for every contributing user. Read more »
