The 4 Steps to Keyword Analysis: How to Prioritize Your Resources

The 4 Steps to Keyword Analysis: How to Prioritize Your Resources | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it
'For the vast majority of blogs and business websites, you’ll be able to create only a few really great pieces of content a month.

That means you’ll never get to every single keyword you dug up in your research.

In fact, you may never get past 10% (but you can still be incredibly successful). 

So, what do you do?

You prioritize. 

Some keywords are better than others to go after for your business. 

I’m going to show you a 4-step process you can follow to analyze the keywords you came up with and decide which keywords to pursue'.

'The top two factors for Google’s search rankings are: content and  link pointing to the site (also called link building and backlinks). 


To the untrained eye, both of these strategies might seem very vague or confusing. You might be asking yourself: "How exactly can content improve rankings?” or “I already use keywords, what else can I do?” or “How do I get other websites to link to my site?'


Lucky for you, I’m going to explain different tactics you can take to best optimize your content and link building for SEO'.

These Charts Show How Globalization Has Gone Digital

These Charts Show How Globalization Has Gone Digital | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it
Just 15 years ago, cross-border digital flows were almost non-existent. Today, they exert a larger impact on global economic growth than traditional flows of goods, which developed over centuries.

Via Seth Dixon, Jane Ellingson
Stan Smith's insight:

"Yes, globalization. For many people, that word conjures up, at best, images of container ships moving manufactured goods from far-flung factories. At worst, it harkens back to acrid debates about trade deficits, currency wars and jobs moving to China. In fact, since the Great Recession of 2008, the global flow of goods and services has flattened, and cross-border capital flows have declined sharply. But globalization overall isn't on the wane. Like so much in our world today, it has reinvented itself by going digital."

Leveraging Social Media for Local SEO

Leveraging Social Media for Local SEO | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it

The challenge in an integrated search and social strategy is leveraging popular social platforms to increase website positioning on search engines. 


Using social media to promote local brand awareness is critical when working to be the leader among competitors in the digital landscape. 


You want to make sure your brand (or the brand you manage as an SEO) is regularly utilizing these channels — before they become completely obsolete. 


If you’ve been doing online marketing for any significant amount of time now, you’re probably already using the two major social media platforms, Twitter and Facebook. If you’re B2B, you might be using LinkedIn, too. And if you’re in the tech world, perhaps Google+ is a part of your local marketing strategy. However, there are tons of other social platforms out there that local businesses can use to boost their local SEO. 


So how can you use these to broaden your local presence? Columnist Lydia Jorden is going to discuss micro-strategies for leveraging two popular social media platforms that aren’t as commonly used for local search: Snapchat and Quora: http://searchengineland.com/leveraging-social-media-tools-local-seo-244810

We have all heard of Propaganda Techniques, advertising is all about touching emotions in a big way! Brands use feelings and emotions to get people to buy products even when they don't need them! Brand loyalty depends to a great deal on emotive attachments. Baby products for one thing exploit maternal feelings to a great deal, whether it is diapers, or clothes!
Nicole Copeland's curator insight, April 15, 3:25 PM
Isn't it the same for learning? Don't we "buy in" when we feel that emotional or personal connection to the information? We may want to take a lesson from the best marketers who somehow know exactly how to get us to buy what they are selling.
