Relationships and Recommendations Soon More Valuable Than SEO

Relationships and Recommendations Soon More Valuable Than SEO | Marketing&Advertising | Scoop.it

Jan Gordon: "Here's what caught my attention:

 

 Axel: As long as people search for a product not knowing their name or a technology, not knowing its source or a solution not knowing who is a potential supplier SEO is an important part of the marketing mix...

 

However, this is slowly and steadily changing.

 

Today 60 – 80% of the so called educated purchase decision is based on recommendations by trusted individuals or groups that have no or no significant interest in the sale but helpful and experienced people using or knowing the product or service in need.

 

And the number of recommendation based purchases is steadily growing. I'm sure it will hit the 80 – 90% range in the next 5 to 10 years.

 

Now – what does that mean to SEO?

 

Why should a business invest in search engine optimization if most of the purchase decisions are based on recommendations?

 

Wouldn't it be smarter to invest into the "recommendation chain" instead in SEO?

 

Wouldn't it be more effective and successful to make sure people recommend a product than hoping to come up higher in the list of search results?"

Thank you for this Robin, it's greatly appreciated. It's exciting to watch and be a part of all this change, I'm sure you agree:-)

Yes Jan... I don't know exactly what you are referring to, but this the only sure thing we have today: this is time of fast and continuous change... so I am certainly enjoying the ride.

On another note: I would humbly suggest to consider posting shorter stories, especially when you are also pointing to the original, as what I am looking for from you, is not a rehash of what's in the article - outside of a 1-3 para excerpt - but the reasons why you are recommending it. You are already doing both, but it is overwhelming for me. Too much stuff, and I haven't even seen the original yet.

I would also gently mute some of the visual noise you create by heavily formatting with asterisks, bolds and big font sizes. In my case that doesn't help much. It actually hinders my ability to rapidly scan and check whether you have something good there.

I suggest to limit greatly the formatting options you use and to highlight only what is really relevant, because when too many things are highlighted, bolded, asterisked, none has any more an effect on me. It's like a crowd screaming: who do you help? :-)

A Checklist for Measuring Your Content Marketing Success | Content Marketing Institute

A Checklist for Measuring Your Content Marketing Success | Content Marketing Institute | Marketing&Advertising | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"As the halfway point of 2012 approaches, we suggest using this seven-step checklist for measuring your content marketing success. The goal is to take a fresh look at your content marketing from a broader, long-term perspective.

 

The process will help you pinpoint the areas of your content strategy that are working well, and those that could use some fine-tuning.

 

Use the Content Marketing Success Worksheet below to record your responses to the following questions:

 

1. Consistency: How consistent is your content marketing?

2. Relevance: Does your content marketing deliver the right information?

3. Style: Does your content engage your market?

4. Efficiency: Do you have an efficient process for selecting and producing topics for your content?

5. Influence: Does your market position or level of influence improve each month?

6. Goals: Does your content support your firm’s long-term goals?

7. Challenge: Does your staff find your content marketing to be adequately challenging?

 

It’s easy to put this analysis process into play in your organization — there are just two main steps:

 

1. Share the Content Marketing Success worksheet with your staff.

2. Rate your content marketing on a scale of 1–5.

 

No content marketing program is ever finished — there is always room for improvement."

 

 

Each element is analyzed with more information.

Does Negative SEO really work?

 

 

TastyPlacement created a simple Study to test the theory if poor quality links can harm a website's ranking position.

 

Negative SEO is an undertaking whereby a business competitor attempts to harm the search ranking position of a competing website through the procurement of junk and spam links.

 

This Study shows that Negative SEO is very real, and can be accomplished for very little money.

Guillaume, Thanks for your input. Tasty Placement don't include recovery information, I'm sure recovery would occur but at a cost.
It is scary to think that for literally "peanuts" you could destroy a competitors site, Cheers Michele
