SEM How to Improve Account Performance and Buyer Personas

by Steve Godlewski @ Hire SEO Manager

SEM How to improve account performance   Smoothly running and decently performing SEM campaigns require getting three things right: tracking, targeting and a good user experience. If you can master these three areas, your campaigns will “deliver the goods” and get you conversions at a decent cost per acquisition (CPA), or sales at a solid return on ad spend (ROAS). Tracking Tracking is everything. First, how can you spend thousands of dollars on your company’s behalf if you can’t track results to prove you were successful? Second, if you aren’t tracking results, then how can you optimize your campaigns by improving poor ads, favoring successful ads and using targeting methods such as keywords or demographic segments? Tracking is often overlooked or not properly maintained; without it, in the long run, most organizations will not allow you to have a budget. And if you can’t prove your results, you will get a reputation as a “bad steward.” If you’re using AdWords in combination with Google Analytics (GA), you have the luxury of using “autotagging,” where Google automatically appends a parameter with a string to all of your ads’ URLs. This unique string is a magical index number that allows GA and AdWords to look up dozens of pieces of information about the searcher’s click — city, browser, campaign, ad group, search term and so forth. It literally is a simple checkbox you enable (assuming you go through the multiple steps required to get GA to talk to AdWords as well, that’s a bit more of a challenge, as you need to set a few things on each end). If instead you’re using Facebook (or LinkedIn Ads, or any Display advertising platform), since those are not Google products, autotagging is not an option; instead you must append “utm” codes for Google Analytics to...

Incorporation of Company Branding and SEO

How SEO Can Lower Paid Search Budgets & Create FAQ’s

by Steve Godlewski @ Hire SEO Manager

How SEO Can Lower Paid Search Budgets   Oftentimes I’m asked, “Why should I invest in paid media when I already rank in position one for many organic search results?” Well, to answer that simply, investing simultaneously in PPC and SEO can and will result in an incremental rise in your brand’s bottom line. And we have the data to prove it. The main synergy between the two lies in monitoring two factors: advertising spends shows and rankings. Whether your goal is to lower cost per click (CPC) or increase total traffic, SERP (search engine results page) position can inform how we manage paid search ads. At our agency (ZOG Digital), our teams work without silos and integrate performance data regularly. In analyzing a few accounts further as a sample set, we began to identify a correlation larger than previously understood between ad CTR (click-through rate), organic CTR and cost per click for the keywords. To verify the connection between organic and paid search, we tracked high-traffic keywords and their positions across both channels. While both have the innate ability to show success in their own right, our data points out each positively influences the other. SEO and paid search need to work together Optimal online marketing campaigns all come down to the key performance indicators. Once an SEO campaign begins, it can take time to set in and see results. Paid search’s core strength is that it allows for short-term performance with better visibility on specific queries. What binds them together is visibility on a SERP — with the right tools, marketers can influence position against competing results. It’s no secret that SEO is more sustainable long-term, but it can take a long time before results are realized. A PPC (pay-per-click) tactic can help to offset limited SEO results at the...

Whether you are a large Illinois company or a small set up, there will come a time when you will have to make a decision to outsource some of your marketing work. As we all know, effective marketing is the life-blood of all businesses, possibly even more important than sales. Social Marketing in Illinois Selecting the right marketing agency to work with you is likely one of the most important decision you have to make in the entire realm of marketing decisions. Your marketing agency is going to be working with you long term (there is no such thing as a “quick fix” where marketing is concerned!) and that relationship has strong bearings on your success. There are many resources that you can turn to for advise on selecting the right marketing agency. But one thing is for sure, please do not, never, ever, don’t even think about – calling for a few quotes and awarding the job to the lowest bidder! Most experts will agree that the marketing agency is likely to be the external party that will become most intimately acquainted with your business. Your marketing agency is almost an extension of you, they are your most valuable weapon. How should you then select one? Several ways to approach this: – Get a short list of good agencies either from recommendations or reports – Ask for a portfolio to understand their past work – Ask for a proposal and evaluate how to approach this first task – Do a pitch There are ways to understand how the marketing agency for your Illinois business charges. You need to understand their processes. I would like to suggest that these methods can be found in many places. But as an insider, I can also tell you that there is a single most...

5 massive SEO and Content Shifts you Need to Master with 10 Ultimate SEO Tools For Business Owners

5 Massive SEO and Content Shifts you Need to Master with 10 Ultimate SEO Tools For Business Owners   What can today’s industry shifts tell us about the future of SEO and content marketing? Columnist Jim Yu discusses some current trends and their implications. Google has thrown a lot at marketers in just the last five years. All of these big changes — from rolling out major algorithm updates to shifting to mobile-first — have essentially had the same goal: to provide the best possible search experience to users. Google wants to show users the best content at the right time on the right device as quickly as possible. Some marketers have struggled to keep up with and adapt to these huge changes. Meanwhile, other brands are thriving. Why? Because they have learned to stay ahead of Google’s ever-evolving algorithms by focusing on content and quality. Smart marketers know that they must have similar goals to Google. That means providing content that resonates, engages and converts — wherever, whenever and however consumers discover it. It’s important to not just look at where Google is today, but where Google is heading over the next six months, next year and beyond. If you can stay ahead of these momentous shifts, you can stay ahead of Google and your competition to dominate online in your industry. The future in search is now. It’s time to start thinking forward — and fast! Below are five SEO shifts that you need to master as we head into the latter part of this year. 1. From SEO to ‘SEO and content convergence’ Just as content alone isn’t enough to guarantee SEO success, SEO alone isn’t enough to guarantee that people will find and engage with your content.

Attention search marketers: ALL keywords are branded keywords!

by Steve Godlewski @ Hire SEO Manager

Attention search marketers: ALL keywords are branded keywords! Look, I get it. For the longest time, PPC marketers and SEOs alike have been segmenting brand campaigns and content (those with trademarks and company names) from more generic search terms. After all, branded keywords tend to be “unicorns” — in PPC, these are keywords which generate ridiculously high CTRs (click-through rates) (40, 50 or 60 percent) and Quality Scores (9 or 10); in SEO, these are keywords that rank at the top of the SERP. Meanwhile, non-branded keywords perform like donkeys — in other words, average at best. While branded vs. non-branded is an interesting distinction, it’s also an incomplete one. Even non-branded keywords can act like brand terms when brand affinity exists. Here’s why it’s time that we re-examine some of our assumptions about branded vs. non-branded keywords in both paid and organic search marketing. Search doesn’t grow demand Generally in search marketing, the goal is to connect with people who are searching for your products and services. If you reach them at the right micro-moment, you can turn these searchers into leads and sales for your business. By definition, however, the greatest strength of paid and organic search marketing is also its greatest weakness. Search doesn’t grow new demand. Search harvests existing market demand. Specifically in terms of commercial queries, searchers need to know what they are looking for — and to have already decided to buy — in order for search marketing to be successful. So when people search, they already need to know what they want to search for and purchase. But how do they decide which ads they click on and from whom to buy? Where does that come from? Certainly, it isn’t based on whether the keyword is branded or non-branded. Brand affinity makes or breaks your search The propensity to...

The debate between absolute links and relative links continues to live on in the SEO world.

SEO and social: It Does not Add Up

by Steve Godlewski @ Hire SEO Manager

SEO and social: 1 + 1 = 3   Flexibility and a willingness to fail Leading off the session we had Maggie Malek, head of PR and social at MMI agency out of Houston. She walked us through a process for getting search and social to work together. If your business is like most businesses, it’s likely that various groups tend to work in silos. This is a problem for many reasons, and it’s critical to break down those silos. To make matters worse, the current landscape is a bit of a mess: Worse still, that landscape is constantly changing. One of the other big problems we all face is that consumers have a natural ad block. Success will only come if we have a willingness to create authentic conversations with people and identify moments that matter. Malek’s overall recommended process is captured in this chart: These four pillars are key to success. But equally important is having flexibility and a willingness to fail. What that means is that there is no such thing as content without value. For example, a post that gets no engagement still provides useful information. One last key point before we start walking through the process: To create a true breakthrough, you must come from a genuine place, and what that means is that you must “define your spirit” (I interpreted this as being clear on what you stand for). Step 1: Lead with data In other words, what are people searching for? Bear in mind, though, that Google is not the only place people are searching. They use Facebook Open Graph, YouTube, Amazon, Twitter, Instagram and more. Malek also recommends that you use this data from search to act as the “head” for your efforts, and that info from social act as the “heart.” Basically, search drives...

Combining PPC and SEO Strategies for Search Marketing Domination

by Steve Godlewski @ Hire SEO Manager

Combining PPC and SEO Strategies for Search Marketing Domination A question we are often asked is, “Which is better: SEO or PPC?” This is not a question with a general answer, as it really, truly depends on your current situation, objectives and marketplace. Certainly, we are big on SEO at Bowler Hat. My experience in this industry over nearly 17 years shows me that when done well, organic search delivers more volume at a better cost per lead than paid search. However, this is not the marketing Wild West it once was. New businesses can have a hard time getting started with SEO, and paid search can offer a fast track to search marketing when done correctly. For me, this all comes back to your digital marketing strategy. Understanding your prospective customers and how they use the web is key to determining whether paid search, organic search or a combination of both is the best approach for your unique and ever-changing situation. In this post, I am going to look at the pros and cons of both SEO and PPC as a marketing strategy and provide some tips in choosing the right channel for your business. Where both organic and paid are suitable, we will take a look at how to integrate SEO and PPC for improved results from your search marketing efforts. SEO: Improve your organic traffic What are the pros and cons of organic traffic from search engines? Let’s begin with the pros: Awareness. Visibility in search engines for your targeted keywords puts your business in front of potential customers in much the same way as if you were to advertise, and it drives brand awareness. Branding. Visibility around commercial search terms and informational queries related to your business area can have a positive branding benefit. Your brand can become associated...

Combining PPC and SEO Strategies for Search Marketing Domination

by Steve Godlewski @ Hire SEO Manager

Combining PPC and SEO Strategies for Search Marketing Domination   Organic or paid search — they’re fundamentally different yet two sides of the same coin. Having tunnel vision for SEO or PPC doesn’t make much sense when they both help you get to where you want to Tyler Thursby 4.3K READS Throughout my time working in search marketing, one question inevitably comes up when pitching a new client: “Should we focus more on SEO or PPC?” Consider that question for a moment. Organic or paid search — they’re fundamentally different yet two sides of the same coin. Having tunnel vision for SEO or PPC doesn’t make much sense when they both help you get to where you want to go. What binds the two strategies together is their purpose: increasing visibility. It might help to think about this in the context of a basketball team — mostly because I like to make basketball-related analogies. Hear me out. Standard teams have five people on the court, typically specializing in one area: shooters, defenders, and facilitators. The best teams find a way to utilize everybody on the court. See where I’m going with this? It’s not much of a stretch to apply this principle to search marketing. Ignoring an entire medium is kind of like ignoring players with specific talents on your team. It doesn’t matter if you’re the Michael Jordan of paid search either — this kind of self-imposed handicap only limits what you’re capable of achieving. Just like MJ needed Scottie Pippen, so too does SEO need complimentary forces like PPC. The Ugly Word: Budget Awesome basketball analogy aside, what I’m saying isn’t exactly a revelation. So, assuming much of this is common knowledge, you certainly have to wonder: why do so many businesses set a priority between SEO and PPC? I personally...

Tech Jobs On The Rise Through 2020

by Steve Godlewski @ Hire SEO Manager

Tech Jobs On The Rise Through 2020 – News For the Digital Age   By 2020, employment in all computer occupations is expected to increase by 22%, but some IT fields will fare better than others, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics U.S. officials on Thursday said that offshoring will hurt the growth of U.S. programming jobs in this decade, though expansion of healthcare IT and mobile networks will in turn increase demand for software developers, support technicians and systems analysts. By 2020, employment in all computer occupations is expected to increase by 22%, but some IT fields will fare better than others, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) biennial update of employment projections. Source: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Demand for software developers will be the strongest in this period, with increases ranging from 28% to 32%, depending on the type of software development. The BLS update imagines what IT employment will look like through 2020. The agency’s forecasts, particularly for technology-related jobs, are often controversial because they can’t account for rapid market changes and tech disruptions. But its estimates are often cited in various policy debates on issues ranging from education to immigration. The IT employment growth rate projected by the BLS was characterized as “anemic” by Victor Janulaitis, CEO of Janco Associates, a research firm that analyzes IT wage and employment trends. “When you consider the overall demand for systems and applications in high-growth markets like China and India, [the BLS projections] mean the U.S. will be doing a diminishing portion of the development and implementation work,” said Janulaitis. “If that’s the case, the U.S. will no longer be the leader in IT.
