  2. who am i?<br />search + social + integrated<br />marketing consultant<br />for<br />enterprise<br />agency<br />startup<br />@lauralippay<br />lauralippay.com<br />
  3. How can social media affect search? <br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  4. 1<br />Owning search results through social.<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  5. What happens when you own SERPS through social?<br />You control what people see in search results about your brand.<br />You have more brand impressions in search results.<br />You encourage direct traffic (to your site directly from SERPS) and indirect traffic (to your site indirectly trough a social network).<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  6. Example: Specialty’s.(you’ll want to be like these guys).<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />

  11. The website is listed three times on the first page of SERPS. <br />Good.<br />Local Kirby stores and service centers appear in Google places results. Good.<br />Kirby vacuum images appear in SERPS. <br />Good.<br />But where are the social SERPS? Guess what’s below the fold…<br />
  12. More page 1 SERPS:<br />People bashing Kirby. No social presence.<br />Site with thread of complaints from their own salespeople.<br />Derogatory news investigation reports<br />Complaints on Consumeraffairs.com<br />
  13. There are Kirby brand pages on Facebook…<br />...none with many members or likes.<br />Tough for people or search engines to determine if any are official…<br />…which is likely why their Facebook page doesn’t rank as well as more content-rich slanderous forums (which are likely visited and shared more often).<br />
  14. They don’t seem to have an official Twitter account.<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  15. 2<br />Visibility in social can = visibility in search.Optimize for social.<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  16. Social participation ≠ search visibilitySocial success = search visibility<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  17. Whole Foods<br />Whole Foods has a blog, YouTube channel (and videos on their site), Twitter account (w/ 1.8 million followers), Facebook page, and forums on their site. They are extremely community-oriented and cross-promote their social networks.<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />

  26. www.lauralippay.com<br />159 million upload views on YouTube<br />
  27. Sites are optimized, all channels cross-promoted<br />BLENDER <br />SITE<br />FACEBOOK PAGE<br />VIDEO SITE<br />YOUTUBE CHANNEL<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />

  31. Example: Mint.com.A great product = natural search (links) and social (sharing) success.Content shared in social appears in & drives traffic from search.Social-focused content strategy represents the “new SEO”.<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  32. THIS is (post-Panda) SEO.<br />Audience-driven approach rather than strictly search-driven approach creates natural buzz around product which influences rankings without having to build content and links specifically for search engines.<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  33. Q&A: Search & Social Visibility<br />UGC question w/ dedicated URL on site.<br />Question asked on May 11, 2010<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  34. Q&A: Search & Social Visibility<br />Well optimized Q&A pages allow Mint.com to appear in search results for popular financial questions and for tail queries.<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  35. Q&A: Search & Social Visibility<br />Q&A pages also appear in Google realtime search because people are tweeting the content. <br />Notice they’re still tweeting it 7 months later.<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  36. Hot infographics = social & search visibility<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  37. Infographics = social & search visibility<br />People love infographics.<br />Mint.com prompts people to share them, <br />and they do.<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  38. Infographics = social & search visibility<br />Popularity of this content in articles and social spaces created measurable buzz around the site. <br />And the page tops rankings for the query in web search.<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />

  41. The process without the social prompts<br />1) Page exists. Gets indexed by search engines.<br />3) Page will appear in search results. Ranking dependent on popularity.<br />2) People read it in their feeds. Some might link to it in article & share on FB and tweet it even without social share button prompts.<br /> = <br />average visibility & traffic.<br />But why settle for average?<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  42. The process with the social prompts<br />6) More widespread popularity = higher search volume = more potential for visibility & traffic.<br />7) The page will rank better b/c of social signals and for more searches b/d of higher search vol.<br />8) It will also appear in realtime search and your networks social search results.<br />5) Page gets several times more visibility and links.<br />This influences performance in search results.<br />4) Social buttons prompt sharing.<br /> = <br />More popularity generally = higher search volume<br />More social popularity = better search performance<br />High search volume + high ranking = traffic<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />

  58. According to Facebook<br />Almost 65 million Facebook users “Like” things daily.<br />http://www.allfacebook.com/2010/07/almost-65-million-facebook-users-like-things-daily/<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />

  60. But that’s not all.<br />You can appear in Facebook searches.<br />Links to Mashable articles from Facebook search.<br />Mashable article titles are optimized (relevant and descriptive). This can help clickthrough.<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  61. Optimize your ‘like’ for search.<br />Make sure your page titles are relevant, catchy and contain keywords.<br />Choose the type of content correctly, so it shows up in the right types of searches on Facebook.<br />http://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraph/<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />

  64. Tip: Writing a title for visibility + clickthrough.<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  65. Let’s say you’re writing a blog post* about Jennifer Lopez’s record-breaking sales of a newly-launched women’s sandal called “Lo”. What title would you use?<br />Jennifer Lopez Launches a New Sandal Called ‘Lo’<br />We Can’t Live Without These Shoes!<br />Jennifer Lopez’s New ‘Lo’ Sandals Stomp Shoe Sale Records!<br />J-Lo’s New Shoe Launch Breaks Sales Records!<br />* (that will likely be shared on FB & Twitter) <br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  66. A title should:<br />Directly tell what the content of the page is about<br />Incorporate keywords relevant to the page content<br />Use relevant keywords with the most search volume (latter optional).<br />Attract attention<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  67. Titles should tell what the page is about<br />Search engines look at the title of the page to determine the context of the content on the page <br />“We Can’t Live Without These Shoes!”<br /><ul><li>Tells search engines that the page is about shoes people can’t live without,
  68. but it’s not exactly what the content of our article is about
  69. and is not descriptive – might be passed over in search results</li></ul>www.lauralippay.com<br />
  70. Incorporate keywords relevant to post<br />Try to use specific keywords that are relevant to the content. <br />“We Can’t Live Without These Shoes!”<br /><ul><li>Post is about JLo’s sandals launching & breaking records, not shoes we can’t live without</li></ul>“J-Lo’s New Shoe Launch Breaks Sales Records!”<br /><ul><li>Close, but the post is about sandals, not shoes
  71. This could show up in search results for people searching for shoes she launched last year</li></ul>www.lauralippay.com<br />
  72. Use relevant keywords with high search volume<br />More searches = more opportunity for search traffic. <br />Make the best decision related to your blog post content. <br />Using Google AdWords Keyword Tool:<br />SEARCH<br />RESULTS<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  73. Use relevant keywords with high search volume<br />Still leaves these two headlines:<br />Jennifer Lopez Launches a New Sandal Called ‘Lo’<br />Jennifer Lopez’s New ‘Lo’ Sandals Stomp Shoe Sale Records!<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  74. Titles should attract attention<br />Headlines that attract attention tend to get a lot of clicks and oftentimes gain a lot of inlinks.<br />“Jennifer Lopez Launches a New Sandal Called ‘Lo’”<br /><ul><li>Ok, but not as good as:</li></ul>“Jennifer Lopez’s New ‘Lo’ Sandals Stomp Shoe Sale Records!”<br />www.lauralippay.com<br />
  75. We have a winner!<br />“Jennifer Lopez’s New ‘Lo’ Sandals Stomp Shoe Sale Records!” <br /><ul><li>Directly tells what the content of the page is about.
  76. Incorporates keywords relevant to the page content.
  77. Uses relevant keywords with the most search volume.
