Think You Know Good Content? Fuggedaboutit. Here’s What Really Counts

Vanessa Fox and Vanessa Casavant answering questions after the session

5 impacts of a strong content strategy:

  1. Voice and tone: voiceandtone.com – Mailchimp styleguide crafted around users’ feelings. This helps the brand always speak the same way, regardless of the topic
  2. Inventory and audit: what content do we have? What content do we want? What content do users want?
  3. Consistent templates: on doing an inventory, REI found 32 custom headers. Four types of video players. Unifying them would speed up content deployment
  4. Real meta data: not the HTML kind, but data that helps you categorize and pivot on content
  5. Structure and modeling: findability, portability and reusability is enabled

SMX Advanced Keynote: Gurdeep Singh Pall #2KEY

20130612-102404.jpg

Bing’s Gurdeep Singh Pall would like to share a facet of Bing we may not be familiar with. Search over the last decade has been driven by keywords. The idea of typing keywords into a search box is soon going to be outdated. Proactive notifications and natural interaction with devices is going to be the new model and technology is catching up.

PPC Best Practices in an Enhanced Campaign World #12B

20130611-120808.jpg

For the paid search crowd!

Prerequisites of Enhanced Campaigns: Mobile modifiers, location and time of day were only available at the campaign level upon first release. They are now also available at the ad group level. They are not available at the keyword level.

Isolate your top keywords in specific ad groups for editorial and bidding optimization purposes. Do this for the tier 1 and tier 2 campaigns at least since it’s a tedious process. You want one keyword per ad group. You can then test different ad copies.
