Untangled Web: Why White Hat SEO Is the Way for You
Room: C1/2

Marketing has always had an element of deception going back to P.T. Barnum, and search marketing has been no exception. Search marketing has always had a deserved reputation for snake oil, even to the point that smart tech commentators like John Dvorak believe that search marketers are nothing more than spammers. So-called “black hat SEO” has persisted for a simple reason–it has worked. But marketing, including search marketing, is becoming more and more a matter of customer relationships rather than traditional persuasion–now you can no longer fool people for any period of time, upending industries and practices that have long been based on fooling people. So what’s a marketer to do? Start long-term relationships with both searchers and search engines based on honesty. In other words, practicing “white hat SEO” is the path that will lead to your success.

Social Media Marketing – Killer Tactics & Tactics That Get You Killed
Room: C1/2

“But Twitter isn’t a search engine!” Actually, it does have one. Plus, tweets are now increasingly being featured in mainstream search results. Your Facebook pages are a parallel universe to your public web pages? Just as you implement search engine optimization tactics to improve web page rankings, Facebook offers many opportunities to enhance your visibility. In addition, Facebook’s self-serve image and text-based ads let you
advertise your own web page or even your own Facebook page. This session takes a close look at Twitter and Facebook and shows how search marketers can tap into the opportunities they offer.

Track 2: Bootcamp

Search Engine Friendly Web Design
Room: C3

“I’m not designing my site for search engines,” is a common designer objection to SEO suggestions. But when search engines collectively have more users than either Internet Explorer or Firefox, how can you afford to ignore how they interact with your site. Search engines are like the third major browser, and if your site breaks for them, it breaks for all those potential visitors from search engines. Search engine friendly sites aren’t hard to create and can be attractive to both search engines and human visitors at the same time.

2) The Hidden Value Of Forms – How Improving Your Order Forms Can Optimize Sales By More Than 100 % – In All Channels

Very often we are so focused on SEO and attracting more visitors that we forget what we want to do with them! Yes, the landing pages ARE important – but what happens with the visitors once they leave the landing page and go deeper into the site, reaching your order forms – the one place visitors really shouldn’t leave?
Participate in this session if you would like a peek inside the mind of the users and want to be able to think a bit outside the SEO box.
See how changing the way you perceive and guide your visitors in the ordering flow can double your return on SEO – and learn how Telia used this approach to double their sales in all online channels without increasing the cost.
