Integrated SEO 2013

This is an advanced 1 – 2 day workshop looking at the new form of search engine optimization; integrated inbound marketing.

The practice of Search Engine Optimization has evolved far beyond what was considered traditional on-page and off-page SEO work. SEO has evolved into a foundation of a wider integrated marketing campaign. Far from being dead, SEO is a continuing set of tasks and techniques that are more important than ever.

This workshop starts by covering the age-old basics and moves quickly through the history of SEO, noting which tasks and techniques remain the same and which changed or dropped off the SEO drawing board entirely.

After covering the basics and general history of SEO, workshop participants will work together to define their roles as search engine optimization specialists within their organizations. This group conversation leads into an hour long segment on SEO and social media integration, and SEO and PPC coordination. We will then discuss Google Plus and Google’s merging of social and search signals.

The workshop then covers the evolving set of SEO and social media success metrics and reporting methods. This segment is especially important to SEOs and organizations that relied on keyword ranking reports.

We will then look at the core facets of website optimization based on three separate but general webmaster scenarios; SMB websites, E-Commerce websites, and national or transnational corporate websites.

The workshop concludes with a 2hour group participation session dedicated to building, maintaining, and promoting site visibility and targeted page traffic.

Participants will be required to sign-up for or use existing Google and Bing IDs.
